    Updated rules
    - Avoidable contact will be changed to time penalty. Can vary between 5-60 seconds
    - You are allowed to defend position ONCE before braking, as soon as you brake you are not allowed to. If you move too late you can and will be penalized for any contact.
    - Last round will not be excluded from drop round
    - You are allowed to use pitexit blend line when overtaking

    Its unfortunate is this happens - but I saw plenty of drivers not even bothering showing up (in both Pro and Challenge) including the reason "well its just a drop round" so no - last round will NOT be a drop round at all.

    My team name is Burst Esport.

    Every other driver who drives under Burst needs their team name changed to Burst Esport too, not Burst Esports.

    Thank you.

    No, if there were it would have been posted, nothing fixed just yet - so very similar to last season where nothing was settled straight away.
    sure but that first post is mostly to give you an idea about teams AND your number. And since drivers changes team names a lot its a mess to try and keep track of - but should be fixed now.

    Hi @Jimmi Allison , looking back at the first season (and the M2), I think there is no need to deal with the region layers in the PSD files. I just don't want to waste my valuable time when it's unnecessary.
    And how do you want to get the Team logo (Buttler-Pal Motorsport) - same upload like the PSD files or per mail?

    cheers...

    Logo is just PNG and yes upload it same place. That and the "2 questions" was very late addition to the email, sorry didnt get to really explain that too well. But whereever, not super important. But yes it would help if it was simply added to the same file.
    Region layers - that is up to you, if you do not want to use those extra possibilities then dont.

    THX Jimmi.
    PSD files for cars #23 & #28 were uploaded. I defined all REGION layers and added a 'showroom material editor' screenshot to the uploads. Buttler-Pal Motorsport logos (dark & light version) were also added to the uploads.

    I'm sorry too. I had to reupload the #23 PSD a few minutes ago because I've forgotten to change the number on the numberplate.
    ...definitely not slept enough in the last few nights...
