Divisions:
Multiple divisions will be used if we are oversubscribed. The entries into each division will be determined by previous results, on and off-track behaviour, ratings and pre-season performance. Also previous seasons dedication (show vs do not show) also weighs in. But we will host preseason events that will be used to make sure everyone is in the correct division.

Pre-Season:
See above, we will host 2 pre-season events that will be used to evaluate our decisions.
May i suggest teams are gonna push a bit more for this race. Teams outside top 8 are in danger of being moved to a lower division - but there is more too it, just so you know. Its nto pure speed, average lap times etc. Its ALSO behaviour.

Can I confirm that pit limit / code 80 speed is 100km/hr at Silverstone, and it won't change this season?

...and the track to use is SimRacing.Club VEC S11 18.0831?

oh so running the silverstone track off line is not the same? What else is different? (other than RR)

I think if you disable all tracks and cars under Series options, then choose the event VEC_R02 you should have the correct track and mod settings to run offline.

I just noticed that on the D1 server the flag rules are set to none which means you don't get a cut warning.

Why run it offline?
I think so that it is possible to run through pit timings and gather data for race strategies without having other drivers tripping over you as you constantly enter and leave the pits.
Edit: Also means you can run race sessions to double check that there aren't any discrepancies between practice and race settings.

Jimmi I have a very important question to you. Since the track is running real weather at this moment with the temperature around 9-12 degrees (can verify that, its quite cold next to it), will you switch to static weather for the race. Just thinking of that as it might rise the track temp significantly

Not sure i will leave it on, but if i take it off i wil (like le mans) set it to whatever is around the track at the given time.
To elebarate - i dont want to risk teams being DQ´ed etc, so i need to get back to test the "old" plugin and manually putting in data. I know this is working, so not a test per say - just make sure its all set up correctly etc.

The track layout of the circuit is too large in the live timing division 3. In divisions 1 and 2 it looks good, it is smaller
