    Good Question Larry .
    We have decided to leave the window open !
    So you my do your mandatory pit anytime between green & checkered !

    do we have to notify which car we will take or just turn up in chosen car ? I need to pump some laps in a variety of cars and see which suits me better, but i hope to take an Aston :)

    The car you start the series with (round 1) is the car you have to keep for the series.

    The lockdown and pandemic forced me to stay in house. So I registered back for first race. I'm red light, but I'm pretty sure will be some withdraw in race day.

    As Nigel said the car you start round 1 with is your car for the 6 races of series 3 (series 4 is next with 6 -90 min races and again you must use the car you start series 4 with ).
    You do not have to announce your car before round 1 just stay with it after that ;-)

    Well I've signed up for this series. I'm on red at the moment but not a problem.

    All the previous ACC leagues have been on a Tuesday night which I could never make, however weekend races are good for me.

    I've only raced on ACC a tiny bit, purely because all my other racing was on RF2 at the time so I tended to concentrate on that.

    My only other concern is my PC is pretty good speed wise but a few years behind on tech now so I will probably have to play around to make sure the visual settings don't cause me to run at ten frames per second! haha :) I seem to remember I could run 20 or so cars with no problems.

    Hmmm, problem now is I'm a Jaguar fan but I also support Lamborghini, and the Aston is lovely too, choices, choices.... ;)

    Andrew , Glad your signed up ! we have averaged 24 players on the week day series so I'm sure a spot will open up & if your fps get choppy ACC has the down sampling slider you can adjust & also the med settings don't look bad at all .. the only ugly part of ACC is how the unreal engine replicates the mirror images .. :oops::rolleyes: .

    Another question as I read up a bit on ACC.
    Is the pit stop time fixed?

    For this series NO pits stops will take real time, its a mandatory tire change & will take aprox 30+ seconds .. If you need fuel it might be longer that's if you hit your pit box correctly & all , so its up to the driver to nail it.
    The Fixed time will make everyone's time the same regardless if they add fuel & tires or not ..its designee is from the real series in sprints where they don't need to make stops for tires or fuel ,it's kind of like a mandatory stop & go ..

    So for this series we are in real time = fixed time is OFF ..
