    So, I built a new PC and all seems OK except when I join a server (using old UI as server runs this) my race won't advance from Practice to Quali. All the other racers on the server seem to advance no problem. If I quit and re-join I can do Quali and then it advances to warmup (takes a minute or two) and then when race starts I have no problem.
    My old PC had no problem and I copied my installation to my new PC not new install. (ran the runtime programs)
    When the server goes from Practice to Quali it does so on a time basis and rolls over automatically. (clock says 0 at my PC but won't change session)
    From Quali to Warmup is automatic based on time. (Clock goes to 0 at my PC I have to wait 1 or 2 minutes for session change)
    When going from warmup to Race 1, the admin manually changes the session. (My PC changes session within seconds)
    Changing from Race 1 to Warmup to adjust the grid is done manually and so on through the six race sessions (This is where I have no problem at my end)
    Was there any solution to this problem other than changing to new UI?

    I would assume that if you are attempting to race on a track or with cars that have been updated since January, then the old UI might not be able to load everything. But since the server is using the old UI, I would think that should not be an issue. The change to the new UI takes about 30 seconds and can be reversed just as easily.
    Give it a shot, see what occurs.

    Thanks, only reason I use the old UI is that is what the server is running (that version) We are using older cars built before this year. I didn't have the issue on the old PC. None of the other guys on the server have the issue.
    No biggie just thought maybe someone had seen it and knew the reason. Might be a driver or something to do with the new hardware, will persevere and hopefully when we port the server over to new UI it solves the issue.

    Did anyone ever find a fix to this issue? I'm currently facing the same difficulties as stated in this thread. I can do one race per reinstall before it then doesnt throw me into the race session again. It makes me think it's something thats being created or changed after the first race which then screws it up for the next one(s)?

    <possible workaround below>

    When the server advances to the next session, I’m usually left behind. If wekve just entered qualy, I can sometimes click the Drive button despite it appearing greyed out - but I then land in my car in the garage with the engine off and unable to start it using the assigned keys. If it’s the Race session, it’s luck as to whether I get in before the lights…

    I’ve suffered from this problem for a long time but think I’ve stumbled on a workaround that seems somewhat reliable.

    In the new UI, if I’m left behind as a session advances, I seem to be able to click the Setup button - this jumps me away from the timing screen for the previous session and appears to force my client-side to catch up with the server. I can then proceed as normal.

    Worth a shot.

    I have had this problem for months, if I put the old build and the whole championship adapts I can compete without problems, with the new build I get stuck between one session and another, everyone goes to the race I remain with a time timer 0:00 not I feel the session change and I remain in limbo, and the good thing if I close rf2, and I return since I retired so I can't even participate with a few laps later

    and for months I've been doing these posts putting logs and various stuff and no one knows why or what causes this problem! How is it possible?

    Because this is not a common problem.

    it is a problem that a lot of people are experiencing and since February I have been reporting this problem I have put all the log files etc. etc. no one from studio 397 has been able to answer this problem, in 5 months no one knows why many do not play the game let us compete, we spent money on dlc, for the game we spend hours training and then we cannot compete, this thing is absurd!
