Hi all,

So I was just wondering. At the beginning of the race are you automatically put into your grid positions or do you start in the pits & have to drive your way around & into formation?

You will start in a grid, but when the lights turn green you proceed with a warm up lap until the first car of your group reaches the start/finish straight and accellerates. This starts your race. Possible time differences between you and a driver in the same class, but a different starting group are eliminated after the race, but this applies in very rare cases...

Also, be sure to activate the Vr_Stats and Vr_Standings apps (from the VR Apps package on the simsync). The Stats app will show a countdown of the time remaining for your mandatory 180 second pit stop. The timer starts the moment you cross the pit entry line (avoid speeding, as that'll yield a penalty that will be displayed in the Stats app) and the timer will get stopped the moment you cross the pit exit line.

You are racing in the waiting list grid today. I'd assume that all cars will be in the same starting group, lined up on Döttinger Höhe, as it's a rather small grid this time. Further information on the start procedure is found in the pinned threads:

Hi,

When trying to go into the qualy server now it tells me I have content missing. The R8 & 488 Challenge VR2GT are greyed out.
I have freshly done the simsync & the VR2GT cars are ticked.

Any suggestions?

I had a few files in the sync and after the download it worked for me.
There were files for VRLN too, I think...

Just tried again. Same thing.
Synced twice actually. Shows no more files. says its synced but still says content missing when I go to server.
Am I missing something?
I have AC VRLN / VR3T CARS / AC APPS / AC Raceday & VR2GT Cars all checked

That should be all you need...
Sorry, but I don't think I can help you further, that sounds like a problem only the admins can solve...
Does the training server work? If it does, you can try to set your time there and ask the admins if it is possible to use those times for qualification, you seem to have a good reason for such an exception.

Did you try to refresh the server twice in Content Manager? Sometimes that app doesn't update the server preview properly, but double-refreshing usually does the trick.

The same thing happened to me .
The refresh button, close to the join button, made it !

The grey cars are just car that are in the server config but not in the entry list. so just choose your car und click the green join button :)
