    Maybe an idea for the hotlaps to do different cars. Although it's fun to hotlap this combo, there are many great others out there that are very challenging around here.

    I second this. This is a fantastic combo but I'd love to see the SR3XX or new 488 or Bentley get some love, or basically anything. The turnout was already extremely low and doing the same thing again will make an even more starved field. Maybe drag up the old Howston Dissenter, Honda NSX, or the Boxmaster.

    Can't join. The server kicks me out just after loading process. And any other competitions - same problem. Loading time - less 3 mins.

    Lifehack how to join :)
    - Press RACE button
    - Take off your VR-glasses
    - Step aside about 1.5 m (COVID-safety? :confused: )
    - Wait 3 minutes
    After these simple steps I saw competition running.
    Please include this guide into official rF2 documentation.

    P.S.: Tonight will try this method with Radical XX.

    Why are there so few participants?

    Radical - perfect. BMW C2 is very nice, but I think this car not for NS :) Too slow.

    i believe it because last month we had the same car/track combo
    i vote for nords hotlap every month, but with different official rF2 car, gt3, endurance, tatuus, skipp (isi) there are so many of them!!!
    or different official track - sales would go up!
