You are allowed to go when your timer starts a new lap, on Silverstone there is not a visible start line, but it is underneath where the starting lights are.

It could possibly be a copy-paste from the previous event, let's wait and see. I am also wondering about the in-game starting time but I am sure all will be cleared up in due course; there is still plenty of time :)

Still don't get why we have to do private qualy
I think i explained it every single race there are several reason why I wanted this
1. Some teams could not figure out when the actual session was over, meaning we had a few times very close calls on wether or not a lap was legal
2. Several times during the season there were AC handed out during Q
3. Some teams did not care about other teams in the Q
4. It gives the administration time to prepare other things in the background, meaning i potentially do not have to skip everything on a saturday but are able to prepare broadcast on 2 machines and race director machine while teams qualify.
5. We save time on broadcast, which in the end means more fresh commentators at the end of the race.

Is that enough reasons vs "oh its so boring" ;)
I wont say this is going to be private for this round, I would just like to explain once and for all why we did this for several rounds. Lets say we think about a 12th season, there could potentially be a Q day on a totally different day. So keep your mind open to different options, since adding one hour on an endurance race day is a lot. At least when you are not driving and doing admin work.
So like i said, im not saying its private for this round, but at least we need to make sure teams understand the do´s and dont´s in qualifying. I´ll consider, but right now im kinda busy trying to get all the liveries fixed. If not tomorrow i´ll add what i have done sofar to the workshop so you can start testing.

Race start time is probably going to stay.
