    Jimmi, where did i say i didn't have the setup for the race? I said we had 30 seconds to change the setup and doing other stuff, like deciding which tires to use and doing the needed changes, go to the bathroom, get a drink or whatever thing one can do before a race. And yes there is also fuel calculation since the difference in consumption between full wet and a drying track is huge, at least on the Aston Martin.
    I was just wondering if it was possible to extend the time to go on the grid by 1 minute, or 30 seconds, that's it.

    Ok, I was asking because in the Pro Race it was announced on the morning, and yesterday only a few minutes before the Practice started. I think is better to have more time to prepare the race, but anyway, its ok, I Will always be at the back because I am a turttle :D
    I think for me it's enough to participate and gain experience. ;)

    But here it does state that sprint race starts just after qualifying.
    You need to stay ready once its close to 20:15, it was at 20:17 yesterday iirc, so its not like it was too soon. Just sayin´

    I agree you don't want dead air on a live broadcast. I wonder if you could fill it with a commercial from one of your sponsors and/or commentators going over qualifying results. Though, maybe you already had that and I don't remember.

    It would be cool to know the exact track configurations on the calendar, even considering the fact that now you can figure out the pictures in the classification table:)

    @Jimmi Allison hi jimmi, for reasons of the coronavirus my work has changed the shifts of the staff to divide people into groups and shifts, I have touched the week of afternoons the day of the second race of the Gtchallenge in nurburgring, I doubt very much that I can run it for the reason explained above.

    Ok, most people will hopefully be safe and have some more time to simrace these days.
    Stay safe guys, stay inside and game (not even a joke).

    Last race I had enormous fps drops, raced the whole race with 15 fps. I have encountered these issues before and I know its going to happen again tonight, so in order to not get in the way of anyone else, I have decided to skip tonights race. I hope I can fix these pc-related issues in the upcoming weeks.

    Let me know if someone has a solution for these huge fps drop. Practice was all fine, Qualifying was all fine, but then the race (even with only 10 cars visible) was a hell.
