We have racing rules - race like a gentleman and don't knock other drivers off-track especially on the first lap. If you do accidentally knock someone else off into the undergrowth - you must stop as soon as safety permits and wait for that car to regain the track and continue its race ahead of you

If you sustain aero damage to your car in the course of the race you must pit and repair the damage. No cars will be allowed to race with major bodywork (ie. front end & splitter) missing. You should pit on the next available lap to repair the damage. We will review the replays after the race and anyone found to be driving with significant damage may be disqualified.

The general league rules can be found and read here:   https://rslesports.com/community/faq/rsl-league-rules/

No Chat in Qualifying or the Race please. The only permitted chat in race is asking for a restart and only within the first lap.

Drivers are reminded that grievances and issues are not to be aired in a manner that creates friction in public - if you have a problem send a private message or discuss it with an Admin member.

If for any reason you cannot make the race please state below in the thread, so you car can be used by someone else.

Restarts will be at the sole discretion of the server administrator but generally there will not be any.

This is going to be tricky, as these cars are a wee bit quick for this track 😯

Was not too bad with a nice set last night, the first bit out of the last corner and up to the mountain is lovely and great fun, as long as you are careful from the mountain onward and stay off the kerbs all is fine, you can take the first corner flat no problem at all and can easily get in 6th down the second straight. Took about 20 laps but got used to it and enjoyed it in the end once some rubber had gone down. I will send you a set on the server later.

Hmm, looking at the stream, I see that rF2 does not send an updated car skin automatically. I had sent it to the server when I was alone on it, but the stream client had the old skin. I guess I'll have to try sending the new skin while everyone is on. Otherwise just have to rename it, I guess!

In practice I only ever did about seven laps before binning it, so I was worried, but I also watched others closely and saw nobody else putting together that many laps, so I wasn't sure how it was going to play out. Dani pretty much had it in the bag until taking his front wing off. I let my concentration lapse a couple laps later and had a brief off, then regained my focus to the end, lifting a bit when I noticed I had two laps of fuel left and wondering when the race was going to end, but the 1-minute warning came a few corners later so I knew I had enough fuel. (If only the Time Remaining HUD element worked for race time like it does for other timed sessions!)

Soo... a race of attrition & Captain Slow came through the field ..yeehaaa!!

 

Bummer with the fuel on your last lap John- I thought for a second or two about stopping & pushing you up the "mountain" & around the twisty bits - but Dani was a few seconds back down the track & I quite fancied finishing 2nd 😋 😆

That's probably because the stream was a spectator and never went out or back to the pits so it never updated the skin. The yellow placeholder or default skin thing.

No, it wasn't the temp or default skin; it was my skin but an old version. I've updated it. I went ahead and made a new name for it so it will be seen for sure next time!
