    Hi all, Welcome to Round 6 of the TNC Indycar 2014 Series.

    I am delighted to bring my racing events to SRO, having run series previously for many years at Race2Play.

    So as most of you who have raced with me before will know, play fair and we will have a great series.

    All SRO Rules are in play so please bear that mind and ensure you and all other competitors have an enjoyable event.

    Good luck all!

    Is there no required pitstop for at least 60 min races in general?

    No Frederic, at SRO we do not normally specify pit-stops purely on a time basis.

    I have an issue for tonight's race. When rFactor 2 is launched and I want to choose a car, so I click on cars, my screen goes to black then returns to normal but the only car which can be chosen is the Clio 2016 in the list. No other car. Same thing for the track, the only one at disposal is Oulton Park. Although I installed the Dallara and Sebring, none of these appear in the list.

    I checked the integrity of the game then reinstalled rFactor 2 but to no avail, it's the same thing as before. My rFactor 2 has become bugged so even if I would like to attend tonight's race, it seems impossible.

    Yes I subscribed to the Steam workshop for the car and track but they don't appear yet. Later probably it should be back in the list.
    Anyway it's too late for me to go for this race because I couldn't practice.

    meh...stop and go and -1 lap for 2 guys..been there sux, so free win for me. Nevertheless I take it but feels like 3rd.

    Anyhow, 15laps of practice yesterday so ok run.
    Started with full tank and harder tyres and after that did 2 stints with softer and lighter car.
    Had like 20liters in tank at the flag.

    cheers

    I propose no more pace car for this series and instead do one formation lap when green flag waves. Not sure what happened at the start but the post race chatter indicates there was a problem. My apologies to Ricardo for losing control of my car and making contact. It was another fun race trying to make it on a one stopper. Toni was very fast today and no way to keep up. See ya at Watkins Glen

    Sebring fantastic circuit to drive this cars, its been the race I felt more near to the beast Ricardo, so overal happy with a very GR!. Some times the resoult is the less, and this is one of that ones.
    Thnx all for GR, and congrats podium.

    SCREWED BY THE GAME. Man fantastic quali, starting on pole, running behind the pace car and when it goes in NO GREEN flag so we do another pace lap not fast at all and then the green comes and bang penalty right away so I did a drive throw get out another penalty the lap after stop and go and then when I get out of the pits it put me a lap down even if the leaders did not pass us. (Same issue for Sergio). So if we did something wrong I completely agree to get penalize but 3 penalty's that is WAY TO MUCH. (Specially when we don't know why) After my 2 penalties and my lap down I was almost a second lap down (leaders are not far behind me) but I start pushing to improve. My strategy was blown away and I did a couple mistakes to pass some cars and push way to hard. Almost get my unfair lap back but Mark spun in front of me and we touch. Got damage and cannot cut these last 4 secs to get my lap. Hard race, fun race but ultra disappointing race specially with the pace I have. I probably could manage the drive throw and the stop and go but one lap down that is to much. I don't know if admins want to review the race and make a manual scoring. Stay tune...

    Due to issues that were out of our control, two drivers were handed penalties at the start of the race. After review of the start we came to the conclusion the penalties were not justified. The final results have been adjusted to give Ricardo Almeida and Sergio Casanovas an extra lap. After a penalty was issued, this moves Ricardo to third position and Sergio to fourth

    A 30 second time penalty has been issued to Mark Hightree for collision and causing damage to another driver. The time penalty has been added to the final results which moves Mark to fifth positon.

    It is so confusing race. Actually the fight was not among the pilots just against the tires. It might be normal tire wear next time for much poroper race that what I feel.
    I enjoyed really but tire deltas ( option-main ) too much for 75 min. race.

    I'm glad to hear we did nothing wrong to deserve these penalty's, even if it cost a win, but I'm happy admins take the time to review it and partially fix the results.

    Thank you...
