    hmm, practiced a bit and i am around 1:30.5 - 1:30.8 as race pace, with a best of 1:30.436.

    P.S.: i still have no idea how to pit, any help pls?! when i enter the pit lane there's no "PIT" sign where i need to stop and do my stuff, like i've seen in the youtube movies...am i missing something?

    Curently, PIT STOPS only work in MP mode. So, hop on the server :).
    Basically, you'll see a virtual cube marking the position where you should stop, and once stopped, you need to manually adjust the settings like fuel, tires, etc. Depending on your "skill" you do this fast, faster or very slow maybe.. cool, eh ? :)

    Ahm, guys ? What time for the race ? Do we keep the UTC reference ? (which doesn't take into account DST, meaning free 1h practice will begin in 15 min) Or keep the "usual" hour and forget about UTC ?

    Uhm... I'll get home in about an hour - an hour and a half. Forgot about daylight savings... Crap.

    OK. Most (all ?) of the participants are from Europe anyway, so I guess we could keep the "usual" hour and forget about UTC, at least for the time being. We'll discuss it during the coming week, and decide whether to keep it or not.

    So for this round as well, free practice starts 18h00 GMT (aka 58 minutes from now) :).

    There's no problem if you do the race without me. The worst 2 results are excluded so... I can cope with it.

    Ahm.. sort of a Mexican standoff then :lol:

    In our LFS league, we had a rule about these situations: the priority will always go to the defined rules (UTC time in this case). However, if one member needs a small delay, he/she can request it; and it will be approved as long as there are NO complaints. So I guess the decision is yours @TCLF . Delay accepted or not ?

    well, I can miss a race. So I will not be against it being later, but I just won't be there (TBH I haven't done a single lap yet). I will have to do all other races then though, but I can even then miss a race and still be going for the championship. So I would say delay it and let him race as well. I can miss one, he can't.

    Yup, practice starting in 32min. But for future occasions, loosing one racer to gain another is a NO GO :). Either is win-win for everybody, either we stick to the correct schedule :nerd:. << just to add a bit more pressure on you @ihlades :whistle:. This race is mine anyways.. no contest :D.
