    Next season FIA races will be held on 4 days of a week.
    Source: Sport Mode Calendar
    Nations: Tuesday and Saturday
    Manufacturer: Wednesday and Sunday

    I like this change as it should allow more people to get involved. Hopefully they will update the race times too so that they're closer together. Either that or we'll go back to 5 time slots for each event.

    The new season's time range is listed as 17:00 - 23:19, so it looks like there will be more than 3 slots per night.

    Not a big fan of a 5pm start as many people still have work at that time. If your country has daylight saving that will become even earlier as well.

    This new schedule is crap imo. I won’t get time to do FIA on Tuesday and Wednesday except on weekends.

    I’m pleased Manufacturers has changed from Saturday to Sunday’s as it’s always hard to find the time on a Saturday night when you have family commitments. I rarely do Nations so it doesn’t affect me.

    In regards to number or attempts, it’s hard to decide what’s best. I did want only one chance as it annoyed me that if you could only join the 3rd slot, some people have already had nearly 2 hours of race practice earlier that evening. But as others had said, when it was one chance in the past, it was infuriating to spend a couple of hours practicing in the week to then either be taken out in lap 1 or get disconnected. Happy to keep it as multiple attempts and try to get on the first slot each time so no one has an advantage of more practice :)

    So now I need to play and practice four times a week instead of two. Great.

    The schedule is even more stupid that it was, and they're throwing in stupid combos in as well. This is hopeless.

    No. You were still practicing for 4 races every week and you still will. You just have to focus on one race per day this time.
    Can anyone here actually be ok with ONE change that Polyphony does? Every time that they change something there are people complaining. Then they go back and there still are people complaining.

    PD did something I suggested......

    I'm scared :nervous:

    I do also get that there are some who dedicate 2 days a week to GT Sport doing both competitions, and from their point of view this isn't a good change. Only time and player counts for the next season will tell who the happier group is.

    Yes, but now I'll spend four days doing it rather than two.

    Do we know why it is set up the way it is?

    If it's switched to one race per week do you then expect to only be able to race 1 or 2 time per day?

    There has to be away of stopped people race every session to get extra points?
    If the system going to be fair with points we must have a limit on the amount of races per session you can do.

    I think daily races should switch daily. Or they should change the name

    They are races you can DO every day, not races that CHANGE every day. :)

    I would like to see them on Sundays only. The current days are usually a no go for me.

    Edit: Did they already change it to sundays? Shows how much I follow these races:lol:
