Qualifying

Quali length: 2 hours
Quali day: 30. May

Division 1-4 Quali schedule:
20:00 - Server reboot
20:05 - Open practice (ensure only STARTING driver is on the server)
21:00 - Qualifying - all classes
23:00 - End of qualifying


1. The Q is on a different day, right now it is a Thursday - can this change yes! can this stay yes!
2. During Q only one car from each team is allowed to be on the server, if you want to have several drivers to have a go, feel free to do so - but only through a SWAP, do not disconnect and join again
3. Any driver that is registered for a team (not reserve) is allowed to start the car, no matter who qualified the car
4. On race day, once the official practice starts, the starting driver must join the server in time. Just like any other session, once we are in warm up the grid will be set

Would be interesting which downforce package we get. I seem to remembered there was talk we get low downforce but the question hasn't been answered in the SRC forum yet.

For the GTEs we also would need gearing changes, the Porsche maxes out on 290kph with wing 1 on Mulsanne hitting the limiter pretty hard.

just remember The Porsche is faster in a straight line than the BMW so having a safer car through out the race would be better in the long run

Which should come with the low downforce package. But then the LMP3 needs it too or they get overtaken my the GTEs. They ran out of revs at Interlagos. The LMP2 could do without the diveplanes.

Well, I assume you guys could do with 4 drivers instead of 3
Especially considering iRacing LeMans is on aswell

Got everything downloaded and installed, just need some help again with what mandatory options there were on rF2 and some FFB settings (CSW205 and sim) and we're off to practice and do setup work

I set the ffb on the wheel to 50 as a test and raised the ingame value to 0.45 and it feels better. Seems higher values ingame bring out more detail for a similar force level.
