    10 minute warmup enough for Nürburging? On first load it's getting close for me even on an M2.

    Which start formation will be used for each event? 3 Wide Indy start could get tricky :D

    Briefings will be posted on our discord for each event, any start is usually tricky though. But similar to rolling starts on these events. More info when we get closer to each.

    10 mins is hardcoded right now, so yes that should be enough for the majority of PC´s

    load the track offline any time prior to the event. That should speed things up.

    Sorry for my bad English language.
    I did my registration yesterday in the Indy250. But when doing it, I made a bad selection and would like to change, for example, the chosen car and the engine.
    How can I change these choices?

    No worries i was just not sure about the question. We can manually change this but not something we can offer to everyone, because we will have to manually change upgrades etc inside a comp file which is always risky.
    No unfortunately not, community events like this can't have it in CS. But hopefully a system can be in place for this, so you can simply upload it with a sign up.

    SC2018x briefing

    Qualifying: Already done by qualifying into the event, the grid and splits will be sorted by that.
    Race: For the race there will be a FORMATION LAP without pacecar, but controlled by game. Once the game say GREEN you can overtake, so stay ready.
    REMINDER: DOUBLE FILE and do not exceed 100 km/h - the polesitter have responsibility to not just speed, let the other cars catch up!
    Leave room for errors, you wont win by sending it into T1, any behaviour can be penalized up to and including CS ban for any amount of time (by stewards discretion). But this is a fun event for our community, treat it as is.

    Split 1 drivers please complete an in-lap before escaping - this is to make sure the broadcast wont end up with no cars driving or doing crazy things. Please finish the race in normal maner, no crashing into each other etc

    There will be no Safety car deployed, yellows are thrown - so please follow our code of conduct.
    Split 1 drivers should join our teamspeak, other splits are welcome as well

    This is quite difficult as i said.
    You can try and send me a PM here or DM on discord, however if there is any issues with the entry after this (as i said its manual) then there is nothing we can do.
    If i can i will, but please make sure you choose correctly when signing up until this is an option in the CS.
    Include the upgrades you want and what entry you have (meaning name and email so i can make sure you are the "owner" of that user)

    Hey guys , @Jimmi Allison is possible to schedule the broadcast of the rF250 at youtube? This could make easier to share the broadcast with friend and grow up the audience :);)

    It will be broadcast on Twitch (our channel) and on Traxion - i dont have access to Traxion, so i cant schedule it. Probably will show up later this week.
    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2kR8Nkf-OUhrNJqHbdx8tQ is the channel.
