    just looking at this on an egoistic perspective. Should the red flag happened cause of an overseen bug in rF2 and that leads to a lot more bug tracking and bug fixing by S397 again. i would be happy.
    Anyway, if you want to be the Nr.1 simracing platform for realistic endurance simracing. Which i thing rF2 deserves to be. These kind of problems (red flag cause of technical issues) arent allowed to happen. But anyway, we don't even know what the technical issue was. Could be anything.

    Haven't wittnessed the server restart and techincal issues, but I think we should have the discussion if rF2 is suitable as a platform for an event like this after the race. The good thing is that this event is still running, with some fantastic close racing and that the broadcast it relatively smooth and actually a joy to watch. When I switched on the TV today I had to look two times at the screen to see if it's real or virtual footage, wich is quite an achievement allready when we consider where all this started five years ago and how rF2 allways had an image of being the ugly duckling. And it seems that S397 allways have a plan B if something goes wrong. Considering there are only rF2 and iRacing as possible platforms I don't see the big drama in having the option to restart the server to keep the event running. And I am not sure if iRacing offers something like that either if something goes bonkers. :)

    @hitm4k3r I agree. Lets wait after the 24h race finished. But it is still interesting reading all the chat of 20k people at youtube video and reading many people betting at what hour there will be a red flag cause of technical problems of rF2. Well if you bet at 5h you won.

    Well I am watching the English official stream and the response seems to be pretty positive for the biggest part, with people being amazed how far technology have come and how nice the broadcast is visualy as well as from the content provided. I am also really enjoying the interviews. Who would have thought to see Roger Penske commentating on a rF2 stream? It's pretty awesome to say the least. And as you can see with this whole situation going on. A server restart is the least of the problems when real races with much bigger investments are affected by technical issues aswell. Just imagine what happens with the Indy 500 if there is a full week of rain.

    The stream and presentation is fantastic well done aco and rf2. I have heard rf2 being mention especially at the start so that was good to hear.

    technical issues? Yes its a shame but seems to have been dealt with well.
    The commentators and guests did there bit to keep it interesting. Just like in real life!

    Looking great as it gets dark. Graphically I think it has come across really well. Ive always had a weird soft spot for the way rf2 looks. Now its Much improved over the last few weeks!

    For me rF2 has best tire and car physics of all sims. Graphics to be honest for me is great too (even more on VR). Netcode for multiplayer for sure is great too. DLC content regarding licensed endurance is great too... As i said for me rF2 is the best candidate for serious simracing like 24h Le Mans. But red flag cause of a technical problem is a no go. But just lets wait and see what the technical problem really was

    We will get an explanation what technically went wrong anyway after the race. (if not on S397 forum at least at S397 discord). Which doesn't mean people here at the forum are not allowed to discuss the reason or talk about the outcome here before the announcement what really happened from S397 (probably at discord). After all, people here at forum care a lot for rF2 and thinking, talking and discussing.

    I, to be honest, was a "bit" upset to see there is again a red flag cause of technical issues at 24h Le Mans. And wanted to know what other think. Isn't this what a forum is here for?

    If I only care for announcements from S397, I don't need a forum at all.

    @vittorio you immediately questioned anyone using rF2 for such events again, without knowing anything about what actually transpired. You can talk about anything, yes, but that is silly.
