I have not subscribed to the series as i cannot commit to practice and race at least three of the races this series. I would like to join a hosted practice session, but it seems this is only possible for subscribed drivers. Is that correct?

Hi... I'm having issues with my wheel not working in rF2. It's a new wheel - T300RS GT Edition. The pedals and mapped buttons and everything else works just fine, but not the wheel or the FFB.

In the settings dialogue, I can see the axis move when I turn the wheel, but in game, nothing happens. This only happens in rF2. AC, iRacing, F1, ETS2, ATS and pretty much everything else works just dandy.

Any suggestions? If I can't get this to work, I'm going to have to forfeit my seat for the season.

Deon, I follow your problem also on SR.C Discord and it is really weird situation. I suggest you not to quit so early from S15, because there is an option to finish 3 races and still get L4 (in a case you will not fix wheel problem before R01 starts).

I really want to compete. But something's up... I'm going to try to resinstall the game plus the wheel's drivers and see what happens. Failing that, I really haven't a clue what else to do.

@Victor Ivanov and everybody.

Copy/paste from last year s VEC race:
Before T1/Pitexit - Dont touch the double red line (double white in game) - no matter if you are in practice, qual, race - on track or coming from the pits.

Hi,
I have a question regarding the starting procedure, especially this part of the rules :
3.3.1 The race starts after a predetermined corner. Every driver may accelerate individually after having passed the apex of that corner. The starting corner will be determined in the race post for each event

Just to ensure I get this right. As soon as my car passes the apex of sunset bend corner, I am allowed to accelerate and overtaking is allowed from this point forwards. There is no "green flag" announcement and the leader is not in charge of starting the race, correct? So the field will strech out by quiet a bit, as we are in single file and accelerate one after another, which might be intentional :D

Thank you in advance! ( I feel quiet german after this post.... :D )

that is correct
It's intentional for VEC races and that's why we do the same here.
