    Qualifiers - please note that this first PreQualification round, will be done with building rubber. This means the 2 hour session the rubber WILL build during the 3 sessions. This will be an exception for this round only.

    Hi, thats sound very nice. I'm in but .....
    I test Imola and the BMW M2 mod and have some mesh loading errors, some yellow car skins when I start in the pit.
    (I think I will delete the vehicles - BMW M2 folder later and see what happens after re-install)
    best regards
    Have much fun later :)

    So regarding qualifying "tickets" for the BMW SIM Live 2021, will there be 6+6 for a total of 12 across both the whole year, as the SIM Live event happens annually but GT Pro (which BMW Sim now supports) has two seasons in a year?

    Shure to find this track in the workshop. I only want to know the layout. I will see it later.

    I try also Spa, does anyone have a laptime for Spa and the BMW M2 CS ? I really don't know whats a good time to have a chance in the qualify. I start ... again with rFactor 2 and new hardware - wheel, pedals and buy this BMW M2 mod not long ago.
    It makes much fun to drive and test, Spa is also new for me but I have a little time to drive and lern this.
    Shure, I will see the LAPtimes next week :) My best now is about 2:41.5

    One short request: Last race, time between end of qualification and race start was very short. And I not only mean that there was no break/warm-up inbetween (that wouldn't be a problem for me), I especially mean the time in the starting-grid until the race goes green.

    My computer isn't the fastest and I just managed to get into the starting-grid in time after loading the race-session, the race started immediately.
    Could you please increase the remaining time until lights go green? Hope you can make that happen. Thank you.

    We actually did that to show the grid (as explained in the email). But there will not be a session and the qual ends when session hits 00:00
