come on @Sean I know you might be busy but try post the results a couple of days after atlesat and try to have the next race thread up so we can see what the time are to race on track and not like 2 days before (NOT A DIG)
Good question as i'm wondering the same thing for a couple of days as we have 2 coordinators in our tier..I don't know if i can set up the lobby properly if the info given comes so late.

The results are still not visible one day before the race? Whats going on? Also no list of drivers and teams yet, makes me think i'm only driving against Team Conway...while there are other competitive teams as well trying to grab the #WildBoyz title ;)

Plus the thing i don't get in the F1 leagues there are some stewards threads already replied by the Head steward as most of them come from 18th of June. Not a single steward thread of Pc cars in june has been replied to so far. Gives me the feeling Pcars is less important for AOR than F1 :(

Note; I see some drivers struggling at the moment for some reason. So it might be helpful to put up the race thread latest by the weekend so everyone has time to practice a race sim or do a part of it.
Regarding setups, this is really difficult, but what helps me is my teammate as we're setting benchmarks for each other + practice against the AI ONLINE (there are some issues when you practice against them offline, not getting good laptimes yourself). For some reason the AI is super fast / or super slow on some tracks, but I try to keep a margin of 0,5 - 1 sec to them to know to be competitive during the real race. So far this helps for me. Also start using the default setup first and try to get 2-3 sec quicker than that. So far from Indycar S1 to S2 it seems we're going much quicker than ever.

Regarding (re)fuel this is a hard one, because it depends on when you come in and how much fuel you use ( depends on the setup). Basically when you use cockpit you can see it on the steering wheel switching between settings. if you're outside the car you just have to count the burn starting from the lap. If you have a clean lap most of the time you can just the take average of 3 laps and you'll be fine. Better safe than sorry so to say.

Online: I know @Sean's feeling being hit out of the race, i know people don't do it on purpose, but it is important that connection wise everything is stable between us to avoid accidents. So please know the track, the formation & acceleration zone and if you're downloading at the moment please don't do it.
Streaming is fine as long it doesn't cause lag issues, i know for my self i can't stream atm as i'm the host so i don't do it to make sure everyone gets the best connection and lag free experience possible.

I really hope this helps everyone a bit out as i'd like to see the field a bit closer like Watkins Glen where there were lik 4/5 drivers for the victory. Of course there will be fast drivers out there, but if you can drive consistent & clean on a good pace the top 5 is never far away. The first 5 laps are crucial to keep it on track and find a rhytm to build your race on.
