    This is the way AC lobby works when joining is based on entry list and no booking.

    But you can see if and who is online in the menu:
    - all the names in yellow = valid but not conected.
    - all the names in white = driving on server at that moment.

    Hi Chaps,

    Just a couple of questions, as had a look around, and cannot the find the answers.

    Race = 45mins ( so this is a timed race or are you going to specify laps )
    Pitstops = Mandatory or optional?

    Cheers

    Race will be converted to laps and pitstops are optional. Just make sure if you are not going to pit, that you can actually do it with the fuel tank XD

    Would be great if they specified the amount of laps in the calendar or something.

    Also, Pitting in blackwood: Drive in pit box>when pit is finished you probably have to drive out the back XD. Lucky for us blackwood has a possibility for that.

    Must admit, I haven't tested a pit in BW yet, that was my plan for tonight, didn't think of that, as like you said, you actually start from inside the Garage..interesting..

    But totally agree, Laps would be better than timed. I guess 45mins, taking an average of 1:31:00 per lap would be a 30 lap race. That's almost double a BTCC standard race?

    That's probably because you weren't in the race session, but in qual or prac. I just tried it and it worked.

    OK, to answer the questions (already answered) :)

    - 45min translates to laps (30 for this race). Would post them sooner on the forums, but IF I don't have an idea about laptime.. can't :).
    -Usual format of a race evening (in LFS) was: Quick Race 15min; Main Race 30min with reverse starting grid. Very difficult to manage this type of format in AC.. for the moment.

    - no mandatory PIT. We've made PITSTOPS with the Abarth because the fuel tank was too small. Don't know about the Alfa. Maybe, maybe not; your choice.

    - PITSTOPS only work in MP; race session.

    Hmm, this is going to be fun, like you said, you have to pull in to the garage and there is no markers to show where you need to pit until your on top of the garage
