GTE cars will go first and can complete any timed lap that they have started when the 15 minutes is up, however they must return to the pit immediately once done in a safe manner.

LMP2 cars will go at the 15 minute mark and, just like GTE, can complete any lap that they have started when the flag drops.

All drivers from both classes must be in the lobby and on Discord prior to the start of qualifying.

RACE
  • 2 hour timed race

  • No mandatory pit, but you will most likely need to pit for fuel and tyres

Not a problem. That's the whole point of this series - you can just do whatever races you want.
Guess we'll see you for round 2 next month? :p

There are just two things that stood out to me that I would like to point out :p
First of all, pit exit penalties are off. Why? If they're off people can just cross the exit line without consequenses. Not saying we aren't all mature enough to look before we cut to the opposite side of the track, but keeping it on, will mean that people will have to exit the pits the safe way. All I'm saying is I just don't understand why it's off :)
Secondly, these two settings are sort of contradicting each other:
LOBBY SETTINGS
  • Force interior view: NO
  • Force manual gears: NO
  • Force realistic driving aids: YES
  • Default setups: NO
  • Ghosted vehicles: NO
  • Driver assists: ALL ALLOWED
First you say we cannot use anything other than what the cars have to offer, next you say we can use any assists we like :p

I was just basing it off the settings that I'd seen for other social races, but I guess we can have this turned on.

I didn't really think of that, but can see how it could be misconstrued. What I meant by driver assists are things like the driving line - as some people may wish to use that, and given it's a social race, I wanted to include everyone of all abilities :)
