    Intro:
    It's back - again.. challenge yourself.. again
    The challenge series will support multiple splits.
    Based on the hotlap qualifier, will be sorted into several splits with 30 drivers.
    While the Challenge Series has an overall ranking which determines who goes up to Pro Series or Relegation after the Season (which is 6 Rounds long), after every 2nd race we are looking at the points accumulated in just those 2 races to determine the promotion/demotion between splits. Means, if you are Top 5 of split 2 in terms of scoring in those 2 races, you will start in split 1 for the next races, if you are (as another example) bottom 5 of split one in terms of scoring in the last 2 races, you will start in split 2 in the next races. As you can see, the grids in Challenge are more fluent and with this we try to always match you with a great group to race. Promotion/Demotion between Split 1 and Pro Series only happens once a season tho, after all rounds have been finished, based on Overall Points.

    For now the link is removed, comp should explain itself really if you read further. But if not then i am sure there will be a guide coming to UI. Not something i can create now at least.

    You are not allowed to use made up sponsors, you need to have a deal with them, however any and all claims for copyright goes straight to the actual driver ;)

    The old Competition System is gone, so you cant use that anymore
    The competition for Challenge happens through the UI and the CS there.

    ???

    Pls can you confirm if this are the real conditions on the CS GTC ?
    Cause it seems not, as we are using this exact same config on others servers to test and there is a considerable difference between those and s397 oficial CS GTC one !?

    I think there was something about the real road not properly loading in, of which they decided to keep it that way. So there is less grip

    Ok, makes a big difference. Lets keep it like this then.

    What will happen with crossing the white lines in the fast chicane in sector 3. Cutting (crossing the white line in the entry) without rFactor2 noticing makes a massive difference. So, is it right to assume that if rF2 (the game) allows it, you are safe?

    Can I just clarify, there are 4 splits total with 30 in each, therefore a max of 120 drivers?
