    hi, it is a BTCC rule if you don't know it. it is normal.

    beauce forced upgrade (on tires) is ON and set with tracks names.......as in real BTCC championship

    in the real rules some round, teams have mandatory tires compound to use in each race of the weekend.

    example of actual championship
    https://www.goodyear.eu/en_gb/consumer/why-goodyear/goodyear-racing/racing-btcc.html
    https://www.btcc.net/2023/05/18/wid...ts-up-a-weekend-of-btcc-action-at-snetterton/

    some round have SOFT and MEDIUM
    other round only HARD
    it depend of track layout and speed

    correct me if i am wrong but for Thruxton is quite fast they use only HARD tires.

    It is a rule also in rfactor2 but i dont if it had been explain clearly to new sim drivers new to this car category (BTCC).
    on my side i am not clearly aware of how the Hybrid boost P2P in deployed and usable in race (nor qualy ?)

    if you know RF2 or are curious
    yon can see the tire/tyre choice in .INI files

    for Toyota Corolla 2020

    in car-upgrades.mas in 1.51 folder (always 2nd folder of the car 1st is crypted)
    sort by type of file in .INI
    extract to desktop or any new folder => TrackConfigs.ini

    in file ToyCorolla_BTCC_Upgrades.ini
    you get the tire packages for each track

    if i am right

    when Unrestricted = 0 allowed tires compound are SOFT + MED + HARD + WET
    when Standard = 1 allowed tires compound are SOFT + MED + WET ===========> Knockhill, Oulton Park
    when Medium and wet only= 2 allowed tires compound are MED + WET ==========> Brands Indy, Brands GP, Doni nat, Silver nat
    when Hard and wet only = 3 allowed tires compound are HARD + WET ===========> Thruxton

    the only way to use the "unrestricted" is to go on a track that is not in the list or have a different track naming in files (league tracks ?)

    or edit and do your personnal Upgrade files and include it by changing it in VEH line of the all 7 cars
    a long way for unexperimented sim driver

    Ok so i have duplicated posts sorry for that was early hours i must of nodded off lol.. Ok

    So what i can see i think i know my issue with the ini file it looks like i just didnt understand it correct rather than replacing the number with a higher one i need to use 0 as thats the unrestricted number if thats correct i was using my dumb mind thinking if i increase the number it increases the tires lol it was late i blame being tired lol...
