    Dijon Prenois

    The Dijon-Prenois circuit is a short roller coaster ride around the Burgundy countryside, once host to Formula One and World Sportscars but now primarily a domestic venue. While its best days may be behind it, it will always have the distinction of hosting one of the most thrilling F1 duels, when Gilles Villeneuve and Rene Arnoux engaged in a memorable battle in the closing stages of the 1979 race.

    The circuit was the brainchild of former rugby-player and wrestler Fran├žois Chambelland, who was keen to create a venue to make Dijon an automotive centre. Choosing land at Prenois, a wooded area to the west of the city, he began formulating his plans in 1967. Despite struggles with getting necessary funding, construction began in 1969 and was complete by 1972.

    The battle between Arnoux and Villeneuve starts at 18:01

    This track reminds me of GTL. Basically doing a 4 wheel drift in my big ass Falcon through the entire track.

    The times for events will stay the same as it was for round 1 & 2. I did this by moving the GMT times back 1 hour.
    Qual = 19.00 GMT
    Race = 19.30 GMT


    Summertime - time zone change

    As of March 31, summertime is in effect.
    That means that the clock in Britain has moved forward 1 hour from GMT and Central Europe has moved forward 2 hours from GMT.

    Sim Racing Online will stay on the GMT time zone. GMT has not changed. This means that all members have to adjust their calculations for the starting time for all events.
    Of course, you will only have to do this once to know the difference in time.

    BST = GMT + 1 hour
    CET = GMT + 2 hours

    For example, if the race starts at 19:15 GMT, then that would be:
    19:15 GMT = 20:15 BST
    19:15 GMT = 21:15 CET

    I just joined server, having not joined before. No idea if my cars have updated.

    Try deleting the rFmod so it downloads again when joining.

    you have to delete the old vmod server file. There has been a S397 GTE update meanwhile.

    The S397 cars don't always update properly. I've had this problem several times now. Someone really needs to fix that.

    Check the version number for the BMW M8 2018. It needs to be v 1.51. If it's not, you need to force the update by unsubscribing from the "Content" area of steam, then restarting rFactor 2 will force the update.

    Manually removing them from the vehicles folder doesn't do it - for some damn reason steam will download and install the old version again.
