Server is up
Which version is on the server?
I cant connect.
The mod used for this race is the F188 mod from STEAM Workshop. The race page has the usual DL link https://www.simracingonline.co.uk/racing/eventinfo/1113
The original Spa track which was going to be used is giving some guys a problem, so it was changed to the F188 mod instead which is a bit older but still good for this race. Plus it includes the original Bus-Stop chicane, so what's not to like?
I have both installed but i can't connect with the server. The server says "package not available".
Package not available your mod and track are different to what is on the server, If you downloaded from SRO only thing I can think of server set wrong?
Tatuus 1.03 is on the server.
Latest version is 1.08
Server needs updating.
Actually the Tatuus F4 is 1.07, but what's 0.01 between friends......
The server is now updated with a new rfmod, so uninstall and delete your old "SRO Formula 4 R1" rfmod from the rF2 content tab.
Indeed ken, only trying to help you out
Tatuus FT60? Whats that?
The link from the championship page - so maybe that is wrong?
Thanks for updating champ page to the correct car

If you are registered for this first round of the series and will not be able to race today, please unregister as we have members who are on the Red-Light list wanting to race.
Also anybody who is registered and does not turn up for this round without notification, will be unregistered from the series to allow others to get in.
I've unregistered so hopefully everyone can now race, I'm struggling to make the 1st race after this round due to the start time being a bit early for me, i'd even struggle to make the 2nd one, although if numbers reduce i'll sign up for the odd 2nd race of the evening if I can. Good luck all.
I had problems getting on the server, worked fine last night but tonight I was getting some kind of gmotor problem. I thought it might be because of my car skin as the error stated something about carbody.gmt but when I tried to join with a default skin I got the same message ?
Anyway I eventually got on to the server just in time to race (using #9) and considering I had no practice or qualifying runs it did not go too bad.
Race 2 and my car seemed to have less grip, I lost it a few times swapping places with @Martyn McClune a couple of times (sorry for the bump, I saw a gap but it would seem it was not big enough, had to try though )
No problem Norman
I had practised and was going ok , didnt mind the bump I was never going to win lol, Enjoyed the chase afterwards
Race one I made the classic mistake of making that last minute change to the car setup . I added a little pressure to rear tyres thinking of making it turn in better under power. Well after avoiding the incident in front of me after turn one i drove into Au Rouge as I had many times in practice and guess what, the back end let go and carnage.
Got back to the pits and repaired the car before crashing again losing rear end, DNF suspension
Made sure i had my race set up , no last minute changes
Bogged down at start and went back to 11th then settled into a nice rythmn with car feeling pretty good , held some folk behind and paced with cars in front, My driving was pretty good and car was feeling a lot more predictable.
Norman gave me a nudge and I went off track . As usual the car wound up in the worst position in the gravel facing the wrong way and into a barrier. I dragged it back onto track and saw that Norman had waited. Thanks mate but i wasnt too bothered . Any way had a good chase and i could see the benefits of my practice although I still made stupid small mistakes.
Well done to the podium guys
Cyas next round
race 1 was so bad that race 2 noone got room from me.
and if you whine about it, you got delivered.
Well 12th in both races, not great but I had a lot of fun in these cars and on this great track. Some very high kerbs made it interesting I think I had way too much wing looking at the top speeds but didn't feel comfortable reducing that beyond the 5 front and 6 rear in practice or the races.
Small spin in race 2 sent me to the back but still enjoyed racing with those around me.
These were a nice couple of races.
I kinda messed up the penultimate turn on both quali's and afterwards I was screwed topspeed-wise to do anything against Andrew. Nice drive there Andrew
There was almost no place to generate some sort of momentum surplus with this car and also a very low draft-effect. Maybe it was a mistake to not go minimum downforce, but it was faster for me this way, so who knows.
I can do only a couple more in this series which is a bummer as the better fitting tracks are all towards the end. See you next time
I missed the last race due to a phone call as the server was being rebooted and unfortunately was unable to make the start. Though not fast the car was a lot of fun to drive in practice so I will aim to make the next one, even if Monza is one of my least liked tracks and Spa a favourite missed.
