    As reported on the discord channel, 2 drivers cant start the Le Mans track with the LMP3 car. Other tracks with the LMP3 = no problem. Other cars on Le Mans = no problem. I think there is a issue with the cs package?

    Is there room to join the last race, LeMans?
    And if so, what car(packs) are needed.

    You can race the last race, however if you did not qualify you wont be in a high split.

    Look on the above post, i quoted the required content. The tracks and the Norma LMP3 cars. That is what you need. Once you sign up for the series it should prompt you with required content.
    No, there is no servers, just show up on race day and register for the event.

    Since mod update, my Rfactor is crashing to desktop after loading the track to 100%
    Didnt have it for some weeks, since a fix to the car had been deployed.

    Same for me. Mod version 1.9 is crashing the sim upon loading the track. Nice quality assurance

    Note that rule 29. is overruled for this event. Low upgrade has been assigned to all participants in the CS.

    What about track limits? The Ingame system does not penalise for going 4 wheels over the white line anywhere in le mans. Everywhere where I can gain time advantage by doing so there is no ingame warning. Will it be monitored and penalised during the race?I tested an offline AI race and didnt get a single offtrack, although going WELL outside white lines here and there. Tested some different lines and you can gain alot. Regulations says stay within white lines (curb is not track), but if the system doesnt catch it, there must be another instance to check it. For me main places where Dunlop chicane (first apex and exit), Tetre rouge exit, exit karting (you can go WELL wide here)

    Rules apply, but we also know everyone makes mistakes. I am not going to give you a number of how many times you can go wide. But i would suggest to follow the rules. We will be reviewing the race both live and after.

    @Jimmi Allison Enjoyed the series, and happy to get into the top split.

    I didn't seem to have the same setup as everyone else in the top split. Down the straights I was hitting a limit at 270KPH, everyone else seemed to be able to exceed that. Does not help me now, but is it something that can be checked?

    Was there a way i could have checked before jumping in?
