    The server will be up after the Formula BMW races are finished on 5th March.

    Hi,

    I assume T1 will have the normal rule of 2 wheels on the black stuff at all times, as there is no penalty for running wide at this point.
    Even the ai run fully onto the kerbs here.

    Yes, you are correct. But I will allow the accidental overshoot. Only if you gain a clear advantage multiple times, running wide and then passing a car in front or gaining a massive time advantage, there would be grounds for a driver to file a protest. So, it would depend on the circumstances, because almost everybody overshoots there during the race at one point or another.
    To summarise: if you do it multiple times to gain a time advantage, there's ground for protest.

    I want to try and do some running on Thursday, hopefully a day off work. Lol

    I was thinking of just running AI at 100%. Is that a good representation of pace or are some of you going even faster than that?

    I think 105% will give you a good idea of most of the human field.

    I was hoping you’d be lower....lol :)

    Looking forward to it though. Hopefully there’s a good turnout for the event.

    Just want to do some running not just for pace, but for also getting used to traffic again. This track is quite narrow. Patience is required.

    You have not installed a track or car mod

    I’m assuming that you had the S397 endurance pack as you mentioned testing a livery?

    So it’s more than likely the track. Maybe just check you have installed the version listed on the event page.

    Also you mentioned about the livery test. Maybe try a default skin and see if that works. Sometimes when I’ve done skins in the past I’ve accidentally changed a file the server doesn’t like and I get the package error.

    I'm getting the 'package not available' message yet again.
    I have both the endurance pack and Watkins v1.02 installed.
    Is there a skin pack for this?
    What am I missing?

    Did you get the track from here? https://www.simracingonline.co.uk/racing/eventinfo/829

    1. Try uninstalling/deleting all the SRO server files from "content".
    2. Do you have automatic update "on" in steam? The pack has been updated a while back.
    3. There is no skin pack. Are you driving a custom skin? That may not be compatible. Try a default one if so.

    Is it acceptable to drive all tires on the kerb? In chicane you would win some time if run over the kerb, because it's over car wide kerb. It's pretty hard to see if someone running over them, if you are more than 100 meters away from him.

    still cannot get onto server

    Select a default car offline first and delete the custom skins. The game remembers the car you've selected.

    There are two watkings glens in the Steam workshop, were you sure you subscribe the right track? The right one is Watkings Glen International V1.02.
