And when u have to restart the lobby and ask everyone to leave the session all get minus ratings. We won't use it for any events for the near future.
I believe that is the case when the race has started. Not during P or Q

Considering that pCars2 still has multiple connection issues, in some cases even client issues it's not recommended to have a licence requirement set to the lobbies.

There are occasions where we restart the race in a race session. How could we justify that to everyone who participates?

Then we wouldn’t restart as in IRL right. Have you seen an real races been restarted for some technical issues. We’ll have to live with some bad luck or broken PCs

When there is a mass dissconnection then the lobby will be restarted.

I am with you @rillo7105. If 1 or 2 people got issues we usually don't restart the race. But as @Gxbbs mentioned, what do you do if steam is disconnecting 10 people? Also tough luck? Something like that would, in my opinion, ruin the complete championship.

Therefore for rare occasions restarts in a race session is possible and needed. And in those rare situations everyone will lose massive points because he has to disconnect (If I remember correctly static -50 points for a DC).

Does people give up that easily 50 points of the rating?

Well the rating goes up and down in the public lobbies as it might do in league racing. I got my share of bad luck in the public lobbies but in the end i know it will even out as it always does ( karma ) :)

I'm not insisting on doing any league racing sessions with the rating on but i think people will be more careful once it is on. Not saying we should race like sissies if you know what i mean :)

You shouldn't drive carefully because you're bothered about your rating but because you care about your fellow members :)

We shouldn't need something like the ingame rating system to race clean and fair here at RSR :)

We shouldn’t so that’s why the rating system is good for everyone once it is on. It isn’t perfect but it is a good start. In iRacing you can’t turn it off which is good so every move or contact counts.

The rating system doesn't apply to hosted league races in iRacing and generally speaking it's not an issue because there is a sense of honour amongst friends in a league or club. Not to mention the racing is far closer and more enjoyable when you can trust people to race fairly!

You are correct about the private hosted races in iRacing. My thought was just that every race, league or public should count for the rating

Unfortunately we have discoverd that some tracks do not allow for 32 drivers so a small change has been made in order for all to participate.
Is this why Sugo disappeared? Pity. Sugo's my favourite track. Love it.

Aye, slightly sad myself to see it set aside but, it is with the best of intentions. I don't doubt we'll have some races on there in the future though, it is a lovely circuit :)

Not sure there will be an "official practice" before Monday but I bet there'll be some practice lobbies online over the weekend from our members. Best to check here or in TS :)

A combination of pace & experience. It's mostly done so we can avoid 2 front runners teaming up and running away with the team's title. The titles Pro and Am shouldn't be read into too much, they're just labels and don't mean some drivers are more professional or competent than others.

Any known bugs that we need to know about before the race. I don´t know if the setup bug was fixed in the latest patch.
