    The Internet problems are because Nik is in Macedonia, which means he is technically racing in the wrong region (He should be in EMEA really)

    That kinda sucks for the people racing with him. Will be interesting to see what will happen.

    I messaged the Fédération québécoise de sports électroniques (FQSE) about this situation. (We can participate in Online competition since November 2016 mostly due to their hard work).

    They then sent Official emails, but currently waiting on replies.

    to be continued...

    I also got a message from the FQSE on Facebook earlier today. They told me they got numerous messages from GT players and, like you just said, they’re contacting the people in charge of the contest. Hopefully, we’ll either be able to jump in before the Final Season or, at least, in 2019.

    It would be interesting to know how many of the approved eSport events were held via the PlayStation, and not just PC.
    Or, for that matter, if there are addition restraints applied to console gaming at all.

    Either way, it's good to see the general public pushing local authorities towards change and highlighting these types of issues.
    Keep up the good work. :tup:

    Codemasters’ F1 eSports Championship allows Quebec players to enter on all three platforms. There’s no distinction between eSports based on PC/Console.

    Interesting to note that the link to the General Rules has been removed from the "au" (Aus.) FIA legal doc., but it remains in the "gb" (Great Britain) doc.
    Also that it now mentions 2 different "promoters".
    Sony Interactive Entertainment Inc. (Japan)
    Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe Limited (London)

    Things have certainly changed in the past week, and hopefully there are more changes still incoming.



    I only mention it because it is the General Rules that endlessly uses the word "promotion".

    Probably grasping at straws, but anyway. :lol:
    At least there is evidence of the rules being modified.

    The WorldGaming GT Sport Canadian Championships back in February/March allowed Quebec entrants as well, 3 of the top 16 finalists were from Quebec.
