    Are the "goodyear" only logo sponsoring stuff or have the LMP and GTE got the "new" Formula pro/bmw tyre physics for this event?

    "protoype" tyres.

    You ever heard the term "testing in production"?

    hopefully motorsport games throws more money in s397 since this seems like a successful event/series.

    Dstation was hit by a lagging car. I think 3 cars reported being hit almost at the same time. There was an LMP2 car that must have been having connection issues and would pop ahead when the connection stabilized and he may have been the reason Dstation at least, had a dnf. Not sure about Alpine. The 2nd place Merc team blew an engine when the car shifted from 4th to 1st at the Ford Chicane. I don't know if the problem was hardware/software or he hit the curb so violently that his hand hammered the downshift paddle.
    Max Verstappen also went out at the Ford Chicane he passed a GTE car at the entrance to the chicane and that caused his car to launch over the inside curbing and kept going into the outer wall.
    I watched sporadically until darkness fell, then too many things to do at home.

    Button commented congrats on the pole lap and said the physics isn't there yet as the car should have been lost on several occasions - I think he meant the yaw angle. Nothing we didn't already know.

    A danish twitch user had got permission from Motorsport games to stream the feed with no commentators and then he had "hired" 8 commentators who followed all the cars which had danish drivers onboard. they also managed to get interviews with the danish drivers when they were not driving. It was really interesting to watch. I think it was a success, even though the twitch user and his normal "followers" was Iracing guys. As their main game was Iracing, they even got the danish drivers they interviewed to compare rf2 to Iracing.

    From what I have seen there was no red flags/server chrashes so it looks like a success.
    Maybe a few individual issues?
    Looks cool for s397 compared to the multiples red flags of 2020.

    Yes the W Series team had a problem connecting during the parade lap or something and of course there was the server glitch that caused Verstappen to crash :rolleyes::D:p;)

    Well done S397 :cool: Will they be calling themselves Studio 407 now?

    I think there was only one glitch where a lmp hit a gte on the strait. And that can have been a user connection problem.

    I hate to admit it, but I never knew you could pit at an angle. I thought rF2 was so persnickety about being perfectly lined up in your box. Watching Max come in and angle away from the pit wall was new for me.
