    I'll post this up where a few of my mates can see this. Hopefully one or two can come along. Note: I am on call all weekend, so I can't promise I'll make it, although Sundays are usually ok for me. If you need to bump me for someone that is certain to make it that's ok with me:

    I was thinking about this earlier actually. I wonder if they use the local weather forecast for each track or the weather forecast for some central point in the U.K. Do we know if they use local weather? 16C is quite a heatwave for the Brits in May:lol:

    Just in case anyone is struggling to find this room, like I was, Steam and PCars are set up so that it only looks for lobbies in your geographical region. In my case, all North American lobbies. To find this room, do the following, then change it back when you're done if you want.

    Steam (top left)>>settings>>downloads>>region.

    Change Region to France, Paris and the room should show up in your searches.

    OK, you are added to the start list


    Yes... but in the training room yesterday, there was a 10 seconds per lap difference between the fastest driver and the some other: it might be complicated to find an AI setting that works for everybody.

    I checked the game leaderboard. So far the world record is 1'51.085.

    ... but the lap times done in MP, career or Practice do not count, only the ones in the Time Attack mode.

    We ended missing a lot of drivers in addition to the ones who informed they could not attend. We decided to make the room public and reduce the length to 20 laps.

    ... and in addition, I think the lobby crashed after the race so I could not write down the race results.


    But Here are the info I remember:

    Qualifiers: Pole position in 1'48.6xx
    Race best lap: 1'48.219

    Results:
    1 - Flying_Kefran
    2 - Vogelaufmzaun
    3 - Delilah
    4 - Willfred_1

    Thanks to the drivers who joined.
