Hi, my T300 just broke down and I will not be able to race today. I tried to practice with the pad but I’am very slow and I could be a threat to other drivers.

Just wanted to drop sth I noticed when watching back the stream, on the sc restart on lap 6 it seemed that not only me, but a lot of guys behind me aswell were caught out by Deaglekiller not going when the game released him. I can only speak for myself, but I assumed that the game would restrict my pace according to the leader, thus why me and seemingly a lot of other people aswell had their foot flat to the floor, anticipating the restart. I'm not putting any blame on Deagle, especially considering that we havent had to deal with a safety car situation in years. However I'm looking for clarification on what you can and cant do as the leader on the restart, and vice versa what sort of behaviour you can expect from the leader on the restart.

Might very well also just be me being a massive bottlejob, who knows. AMIRITE?!

I am sorry for anybody who received any damage or lost positions during the safety car restart, obviously it was also new for me. My first league race was on F12017 so this was for me the first time to drive behind the safety car. However i dont think i did anything wrong as i am controlling the pace untill the green flag. I just wanted to wait 80 to 100 more meters but at the moment i felt some contact i drove instantly away to reduce the damage from the drivers behind me.

For the future: I think its not ideal to put your feet on the floor as your car can go any minute you're not expecting.

2.3 Safety car & virtual safety car guidelines:

2.3.1
● During a virtual safety car, or while catching up to the train during a safety car period, you must not exceed the delta time indicated by the game.

2.3.2
● If you are the lead car and driving to catch up to the safety car, please take caution when approaching it, as it will be moving very slowly while waiting to pick you up. Approach it slowly and then the safety car should pick up its speed. Make sure you keep a safe distance to the safety car to avoid potentially hitting it if lag or other inconsistencies occur, as this may lead to the game disqualifying you from the race.

2.3.3
● As the leader of the pack following the safety car, do not intentionally slow the pack down to a dangerously low speed when controlling the pace ahead of a restart.

2.3.4
● While in the safety car queue, do not drive dangerously by weaving excessively or suddenly slowing down in front of someone. Keep a safe distance to the car ahead, but without creating an unnaturally big gap in the queue.

2.3.5
● No overtaking should happen under safety car conditions, even if the car ahead of you is a ghost car driven by the AI, or a car that is lapped. Although it may be frustrating to sit behind a slow-moving ghost car until you reach the pit-lane or catch up to the pack, this will avoid problems such as illegal overtake penalties being awarded.

2.3.6
● It is prohibited to park or crash your car for the purpose of initiating a safety car situation. Anyone found to have deliberately crashed out or retired their car on track will be severely penalised, regardless of whether this actually ended up causing a safety car or not.

2.3.7
● If we experience a major glitch with the safety car (for example someone being unfairly and unavoidably disqualified due to a safety car glitch), we reserve the right to disable this feature with immediate effect if deemed appropriate.

@Dominik Hofmann

@DeAgLeKiLLeR hasnt done anything wrong as he kept a consistent speed but as he is leading the pack its on him to pick thw point of returning to racing speed untill the line.

The first of many SC restarts this league will endure anyway.
