forgive my ignorance but is this where i should be looking to see if anyone pulls out?

Yes Tony and so far it looks like everyone is still in the game for tomorrow s race. Of course, if someone will be absent without telling us, he will miss next season for sure and because seasons are set to only two races, maybe even some more (we haven t discussed about it, but we will do it today).

You will get notified if you get filled in. Apparently we can expect 40 drivers tomorrow.

Every driver missing without notification will not be able to take part for the next 2 seasons though

As a warning to all the drivers racing tonight:
We only have 2 races this season. That means you have very very little margin for error. If you get too many penalties there is no time to right that mistake and you will not get license 4.
You have to know the rules, pit entry/exit lines and code 80s in particular!

No excuses, no exception, we are very strict especially now with the short season.

when briefing started, it was announced that it will be matej who will be calling code 80...code 80 was announced and was not able to hear as it was flo who called it. Was not able to set Flo's volume as he was not there when briefing ended

I spoke as clear as I could because I know that this can be an issue.

Matej definitely said the voice for the code 80 will probably change. Sadly I came home late and had technical difficulties with rf2 when I finally made it home.

As a result of this problem the maximum penalty I will give for a single code 80 incident for the first race will be a Drive Through.
With one DT everyone who finishes both races can still get a license.

There would have been solutions to this like:
- Turning up the teamspeak sound in the windows sound mixer. The only thing you hear is the race director anyways so you can temporarily increase teamspeak sound and you won't get distrubed unless it's important.
- Checking if I was there after quali because I was on teamspeak then.
- Pulling off to the side and changing the teamspeak sound after you realized you can't hear me.
- Pitting and changing the teamspeak sound after you relized you can't hear me
- Pulling your internet, change the teamspeak sound and rejoin

You never ever want to press ESC in any race in SRC unless you consciously made the decision to retire from the race.
Had a good consistant race today without any hickups on the game like last time. (replaced all internet related things in house...)

Qualified at P13 could not get the ideal lap so could have been better.
Race finished at P9 without too many errors and dificulties with other people. Good job on most of the slower class cars, who most of the time were very predictable.
Had some fun short but clean fights during the race, thanks for that.

And ofcourse Matej & Florian; thanks for hosting this session again. No problems with teamspeak or the server :)

See ya all next week at Nola, drive safe and have fun.
@Arnaud Marcotte dont use the Dutch version of the GT4 please, you are messing up the results (yes i´ve fixed it manually)
A driver named marco_profeti showed up and raced, this is kinda waste of time since rule number one in any series here is use your real name!

Results are posted.

@Jimmi Allison since SRC uses a custom version of both cars, wouldn't it make sense to remove the Dutch upgrade from the workshop item? That way this surely won't happen again.

Also, where can I find the results? No idea why but I'm really having a hard time figuring out where to find stuff in this forum software, probably because I'm used to different ones :confused:
