Important notes for the Hockenheim Classic GP:
1. Since season 11 we are using the in-game cut detection system as the main method of enforcing track limits, however at Turn 1, 2 and 3 (first chicane) the in-game system can occasionally be unreliable. Everyone is reminded that the standard AOR white line rules are still in effect, and that they are still expected to lift to return any gained time, regardless of if the in-game system would clear without lifting.

2. There is a possibility to 'ghost' your car. If for whatever reason your car is ghosted during the qualifying session you need to return to the pits immediately, this will reset your car and you can continue the qualification. Driving around in the qualification with a ghosted car can get you disqualified by the stewards after the race.

Sorry if this is a noob question - how will I know if my car is ghosted? I'm not sure I've ever encountered it....

you will see that your car is see-through or that everyone else is ghosted - also the dots on the track map are grey - it shouldn't happen unless you do one of two things:-
1. leave the pitlane on top of another car or
2. stop on track, go the wrong way or do doughnuts etc.
so basically, if you behave, it shouldn't happen to you ;)

Hi guys! Anybody with the Ferrari is facing vibration on the steering wheel? I guess it may due to the suspension setup. If so, which parameters could I modify to fix this? I usually don't modify default settings.
Thanks!

My Ferrari is doing the same on the long straights. Nothing I've changed has stopped it. Thrustmaster t300. I guess changing the wheel setup might help but I'm happy with the way the car is performing. This will change no doubt, as it has done in every race so far?

I'll be out on track later today in the Ferrari, so I'll see how it is.

Isn't it just the track the causes the vibrations? I know in tier 2 there are a few guys with Ferrari's maybe ask there?
