    @Jimmi Allison can I ask you for an info? I'm the graphic designer of Sebastian Reeh, my driver qualified #22 for the first round of Monza. I sent the files for his livery a couple of days ago, are they okay, you need something more?

    Have a nice day,
    Andrea

    That practice session is already inside of the same server that will happen the qualy and race , so inside CS ? or on another dedicated server ?

    Can we ask for an open practice server like 1 more hrs sooner at 16 or 17 at least, with the same settings of those we will find on CS server ?

    For this race it is in matchmaker, that should change shortly - but i will send out information this weekend to users, once the liveries are in, made into a mod and ready. Expect it sunday.

    Unfortunately not, the server will be available at 18:00 (building rubber etc).

    Weather looks good on Monza (for today)

    After tonights Round 1, please check first post. We will be using CS for the reminder of the races.
    Meaning: no liveries (and no specific email/invites etc), but as many splits as you can fill. Obviously only split 1 will have broadcast but you can still have some great races.

    Perfect, and last question: in the first email you mentioned teamspeak to report incidents to live stewards, but there is no ip address on the forum. What should we do?

    Moving it to CS, too many issues with emails, contacts, no replies, DNS, reserves. CS handles this all by itself.

    Reminder to podiums, payment is per season and not per race, so you need to save the forms until after R6.

    This better be implemented ASAP then, BMW M2 Cup is a very prestigious competition and being able to show off sponsors and your own livery is extremely important to the motivation of top teams or actually most drivers to participate, equal to or even bigger than the prize itself.

    Also, GT Challenge used custom skins last year but was through the CS, why can't we have that?
