Stewards Comments and Feedback
1 penalty was not served on Sepang, and will be served at Estoril (see above)
A Luigi Sileo has received a race ban due to being on probation and getting a AC penalty this round, driver is not allowed to race on Estoril
J Stundenski is on probation for the remainder of the season

Luca D´Amelio - you need to remove that ´ from your ingame name, 1. it does not suit your forum name, neither does it fit on the entry list and 2. it makes the results not work unless we edit all the line in the xml. Please fix, next time the team will not receive points if the names does not fit.

Lets not start to make a thing about the pitline and pitblend line please, make sure you enter and exit the pitlane as per rules, do not go over the white line into the pits, wether it is a blend line or not. You will be penalized without any further warnings and without any discussions.

Hi, is there a skin that we can use on the server while our skin is not loaded? We understand that there is a lot of work to be done and we will wait patiently. Thank you.

We will be updating the mod once the steward reviews are done.
Simply use whatever skin on the VEC practice server.
The divisions servers will have timing and we need drivers to drive their own cars there.

As the WU API closes down on 31st of december we need to move to another API, unfortunatly (we are not paying 500 euros a month) we need to find the best suitable solution and currently its another plugin that supports openweather api. So for now weather is live on D2, D3, D4 as an extended test while D1 still uses the other one.
OW only support updates less than 2 hours as they say, so for now lets see how it works out. I am monitoring it.

Yesterday I was doing some tests on my OSW, I drove for 1h30m +/- and it started raining like 20min after I joined and after like 40min it stooped and apart from the usual stutter when there is a change from wet to dry it went pretty smoothly. (d1 server)
