    I've seen ad blockers and some antivirus packages block images in that sort of scenario before, maybe that's what's happening here. There should be an image just below the text you've quoted, and clicking on that opens up steam for you to login to it.

    Whaaaat? 3 days til the next round?

    I really hope the new UI coincides with some more competitions like this, so there's always something to run on. Here I am now with a long weekend and no laps to do.

    Careful what you wish for, as they say. 4 seconds to find. Right.

    *Make that 3. Unfortunately I think the next one might take a bit longer.

    @Lu ManiaK It can't be, there's no way to police it.

    It's a pity. We'll see always the same names with the autoclutch+paddles cheat.
    It was easily controllable sending the replay.

    Not true.
    Most of [majority of] the top times are not done with autoclutch/paddles. It's also not a "cheat", it's generally a hindrance.

    I'm within the top 30 of this particular event. I'm with manual clutch, using heel/toe method.
    I guarantee I am not the only one.

    I like to use proper technique, even if I'm not good at them, even if the simulator does not force me to do so, even if this could impact my performances. I think I'm not the only one.

    I'd like to be smashed in my face instead to drive these kind of cars with paddles and autoclutch. I drove for years, in the past, against people who used only paddles but I don't really want to do that again. It is useless and also a real shame to see, expecially in this sim, people who try that competition using paddles.

    Jakal I'm not agree. In some case we talk about 2 seconds of difference in a single lap. Using paddles and autoclutch I'm able to go faster in this terms of time (depends by the mod-circuit). 1.5/2 seconds of advantage, in my mind, is called "cheat".
    Anyway if is not possible to see how the drivers drove, for their best laps, means there is no way to trust them if they say "I drove manual clutch and H shifter!". I'm not talking about you but for all drivers in the list.

    Then we have to see "how" they drove manually...try to imagine someone who drove IRacing style...without clutch on downshift...

    Hi guys, after arriving in 38th place in the first round I've managed to qualify for the second round in Zandvoort (I'm 29th).
    Now what will happen? The race is tomorrow evening I think but in which server, which format and when do I have to enter with the other 30 drivers? Will I be contacted by McLaren (maybe they will send me a confirmation e-mail)?
    Thanks for your help. Giulio.

    @GiulioS I can not confirm it but I think an email will arrive with all the information. Maybe it's better to ask in Discord. There is a channel for competitions and there is always a developer that can confirm it.
