    This series has a formation lap, On green do not race off the grid stay behind the car in front of you in a single file.

    The pole sitter will do the formation lap not exceeding 100 km/h
    On the last corner coming on to the start finish the race will begin.

    This will also be announced in the warmup session.

    I have signed up to the series but may have to miss Spa, my girlfriends birthday meal is tomorrow and we could only get a late booking at 8pm so I very much doubt I will be back in time for the race. Absolutely gutted was really looking forward to this one too.
    I may still have a stroke of luck tomorrow.:(

    Early contact with Paul left me with an unbalance and a slight off centre steering, so at my first pitstop I decided to repair damage and I was in for a total of 66 seconds.
    After that it was a lot better. But ....... just before my second pitstop I got my second cut track warning and a stop and go penalty. So I had to do the Stop & go first. When I came out of the pits, I had no more fuel for another full lap. Game over o_O.

    I do think this track is a bit harsh on penalties. But then again, if you keep it within the track limits, you don't get them :D.
    Great cars though. I like them very much and I will do all the races. I had fun until the end.

    And poor Carl ....... I saw him doing 2 stop and go's and he was pretty high up the order. Shame man!

    rFactor 2(rFactor2.exe) Screenshot 2019.02.09 - 14.52.26.82.jpg I all but forgot about this series with all the winter storm crap were having ,Then I saw the server last night & glad I did , I joined with 0 practice the eve before the event & went threw all the cars , I first picked the Aston as a winner :D it burned more fuel but it was quick ,to quick for me apparently as I was all over in it lol , went threw the others & settled with the Porsche ,it seemed more stable for me & that's what I needed .. It just got better & better as the race went on , I knew I had no chance so just started in the back & was looking for consistency .. Any positions I gained were simply from keeping it on the black stuff ! lol I was well off pace but did manage to break into the 22's this was my goal after starting in the 26's ! lol ..
    Loved the 2X gas It really brings strategies into play ! And I did get one track warning ..but no penalty's ..:)
    I see the Aston did win !
    Congrats to the podium !
    Hope to see you all next round !

    Pretty sure in the pit stop menu, you can cancel the stop/go from activating on your pit stop, and instead just take a regular pit stop, and do the stop/go on the following lap.

    Enjoyed the race and the mod gained places with others mishaps.

    Put tyres to no change when sitting on the grid waiting for the formation lap to start made a mistake did not cancel the rears when I got in to my pit box for a split second could not understand why I was having tyres until I looked at my pit menu that cost me 46s.

    I also only had 1 track warning but no penalty, Looking forward to Bahrain.
    Grats to Stefano for the win and Roberto and Johnny for there podium places.

    My TC does not work online I did notice where I have my ABS mapped to my wheel that is also mapped on my keyboard.

    Perhaps TC is as well but can't find it :(
