    The competition website doesnt work for me anymore, I just logged onto the server via the site and did some laps.
    Wanted to check the other guys times and all I get is a white page.
    Also a friend of mine cant join due to only getting a white page.

    Code:
    <!doctype html>
    
    <html>
    <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8">
        <script src="../lib/requirejs/require.js"></script><script src="../framework/main-dcb0976622.js"></script>
        <script src="main-8c1ef36857.js"></script>
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="../framework/styles/framework.css">
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles/competition.css">
        <script>
            require(['competition/app']);
        </script>
        <title>rFactor2 | Competition</title>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    
        <ui-view></ui-view>
    
    </body>
    
    
    </html>
    
    ^ that's the code

    EDIT: Ok, for some reason it just stopped working in Firefox, it works with Vivaldi browser...
    I did not do anything to alter the behavior of Firefox, I logged onto the site with it and 5 minutes later it did not work anymore.
    EDIT 2: Oh, after the login the page is empty...

    We moved the end date of the hotlap comps, though it is online now, there might be a few changes in the backend. Devs are working on it.

    We moved the end time to 3rd instead, gives a bit more room to do laps over the weekend :)
    Top 40 be prepared to check your email on monday.

    This web/Steam/Launcher interface for competitions is proving very clunky at my end. Web page, Steam web page, Steam, SteamVR, Launcher often trip over one another and the process stalls and won't progress to the next stage, I haven't been successful at restarting the process without a complete system reboot. Today I was booted at my first attempt to join a server and it took over forty minutes to get back in (although the largest chunk of that was being blessed with one of those occasional ultra-slow rF2 start-ups). The next rejoin was better at about fifteen minutes including some workshop update. At the end of the session I'm told I have to leave the server - attempts to launch rF2 via the join session button don't generate the Steam pop-up, logging out and back in to the required accounts doesn't change things so I have to reboot again. I'm spending about three times more time typing out log-ins than driving. My suspicion is that SteamVR is leaving bits of itself lying around and preventing a clean re-launch, both with Steam and rF2.

    I think that's maybe three timed laps in two hours. I'm off into the real world to jump around and hit things.
