    Does everyone understand how to use the back entrance to the pit lane?

    1 - you drive up to the blocked off pit entrance and stop.
    2 - take a stint photo.
    3 - warp back to the pits.

    AJ could you please put into this thread how this works so no one can question this. I am a little unsure, but want to make sure I nor my team get penalized over anything dealing with this. Thanks :-)

    I believe that will be posted within the Supplementary Regulations, whenever AJ publishes that.

    Out of curiosity what times are the TCN-1 drivers doing? I want to know whether I am in the ballpark or whether our team is miles off. I'm doing around 9:06-10's consistently with Tyre Wear on.

    Is this legal for the VLN race?

    Obviously AJ will need to confirm this but I believe that pic is legal - My understanding is that the gray bit there is part of the curbing and therefore part of the track - that's why it's there on the racing line.

    I have some serious concerns about some corners though, turn 4 on the GP circuit is one big one as one can make up some time by exploiting the exit and I would hope that it will be heavily policed.

    I think the nordschleiffle section will not have to be monitered at all, there's really no gains to be made, you go off the track = you die! lol. :D The GP section will be heavily enforced though I'm sure, and that worries me, because I like to go wide in between turns 2 and 3. D:


    May we do this in the race too if we sustain heavy damage in the GP circuit during the race?

    I just follow everybody else. :D


    That sounds a little off pace, but you should be ok. Out of curiosity what car is it?

    Which part are you unsure about?
    In the Arena, see the Track Map.

    Yes you may.

    I don't see the Parc Fermé on the Track Map. I juste see : SC release point, Starting Grid, Re-Starting Grid and Back entrance to the pit lane.

    I can't like this enough...

    Meanwhile the Heathens may be a no show.

    I'm in a room now but I've been unable to enter one all day.

    If GHH is not in qual then it's because we only have one able to connect as there's only 2 of us as Matt injured himself... We think Mrs Matt may have broken him :sly:

    Sup Regs not released? Ten to qualify by my count, they'd be handy about now lol

    Can someone in Europe please setup a room in the GTPlanet Racing Series community for me? I want to test if I can connect to a room again. Thanks :)
