    If you are having issues and are being kicked when joining the World's Fastest Gamer Competition, you may need to enable the Steam plugin

    How to:

    - Open the folder ....\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\UserData\player

    - Find the file CustomPluginVariables.JSON
    Capture.JPG

    - Open with notepad and look for the line

    Code:
      },
      "SteamPlugin.dll":{
        " Enabled":1
    - Make sure enabled is set to 1 and save.

    And that's it, you can now retry re-joining the World's Fastest Gamer website.

    Me too,vehicle select page is empty...please fix this.
    Found a solution that worked for me.
    I deleted I:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\rFactor 2\Installed\Vehicles\McLaren_650S_GT3_2017 folder and restarted Steam.Everything works now!!

    Guys, also try changing your in game name to match the name you registered with, some people have had some success with that.

    My issue getting booted was resolved by doing what Domino Duhan said.
    I had changed my name for a league... problem was caused by me,following advice.
    Pretty funny on my end as that is the only thing I have changed other than super basic settings in game, views, tires noise etc.....

    I have changed my steam name to my real name, same as I signed up for WFG with. I also changed my in game name to that same name. I made sure that the steam plugin was enabled. I get a message that says.... Didn't Install everything. Check Component URLs for validity

    For me, after getting the needed files, it updated a fair bit, then restart computer, the a bit more, verify integrity of game, DL 3 failed files etc..in the end it was the name inside the .rfactor folder that has 3 lines only 1-first name, 2- last name, 3 nickname. My conflict was that I had my full name on the first 2 lines..after I changed that to the way it should be it worked.
    I was getting kicked from server after about 1 min, from the game not rcieving my steam id.

    Been trying to launch this all day, The track wont load. Other variations of the track work like the international track with the McLaren 650s but not the GT circuit for the event. I've tried pretty much everything including completely reinstalling the game and mods after deleting everything.

    McLaren 650s and Silverstone are installed correctly. They work fine in offline and online (tested with other servers).

    Well my problems were self inflicted. You must read the directions.. DOH! I thought it was more automated through RFactor. For those who made my mistake, go re read the instructions. There is a link to the RFactor 2 store on Steam, you must purchase the car. Then in the rfactor 2 steam workshop you must download the track. Once you have done this, the competition can verify and work with your installs. After this I was all good to go.
