During qualifying you are not allowed to disconnect and get another driver to connect. Use the driver swap to get another driver in your car.
- The driver qualifying the car DOES NOT have to start the car on race day.

Division 1 Qual results
Division 2 Qual results
Division 3 Qual results
Division 4 Qual results

Steward notes
Please take a notice of this: 1.7.5 Deadline for line up changes for the events is 48 hours ahead of the qualifying session.
This is not thursday at 17:00!

- Grid is placed between arnage and porsche curves. DO NOT MOVE until your timing starts, this will DQ you. Make sure you do not move before (especially important for pole sitter).

I think it clearly says under the qualifying there ensure starting driver is on the server..... ;p. If you cant make it, nominate somebody else to quali and start (unless its just 2 of you)

I think it says that only starting driver of the current session is allowed to enter the open practice before. Last season, we could do driver swap during qualifying session.

I think @Martin Brault has it correct. One driver starts qual and if another wants to set a lap, then you do a driver swap.

Glad to see Qualifying is not Private :D would be super lonely.

So to confirm,

we can driver swap during qualifying?
we can use a different driver to start the race?
The driver who qualifies best must start the race?

Thankyou for the hard work @Jimmi Allison So hyped for this race

Yes to swap and swap only.
But no it can be any driver signed up to the team (within the rules) that can start the car

I think you misunderstood the question.
Since the qualifying i another date than the race then it is of less importance to do the swap. Previously we were allowed to assign one driver to qual the car on qual day and another to start the car on raceday, as far as i remember?

Yes, Jimmi confirmed this would again be the case in his last post. Any driver signed up to the car can start the race :)

Lap time is what counts in session, just make sure the driver you wish to start race joins the server in Official practice before Q session begins.

Don't you mean to have the driver you wish to start the qualifying should be the only driver on the server before the Q session begins? And then the starting race driver would be the only driver on the server before the race starts on Saturday.

I think Jimmi just doesn't want duplicate cars on the server prior to the official Q session
