Not quite how I imagined this race going, even came back from my holiday a day early to practise for this one. Running 1.11.8's for dry conditions quite reliably, 1.13.8 for start of the light rain happily, slowing to a 1.16.7 average.
Shame I just couldn't find the damn server to participate!
Game & steam closed & restarted about 4 times, all the filter options changed & refreshed about 100 times? Was always able to find server 1 & grobi's server. Just not server 2 :banghead:

:banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

Hell, I'd even stream & broadcast split 2 if I could at least join at this rate...
reset filters ingame, search again for ds, if this doesn’t work
Go to steam settings ingame
Bottom of the page max pings to Server bla
Set this to maximum

It's always been set to maximum @Puffpirat
Thanks for the help though.
(had a similar issue with an older game)

Not bad race, but not for me though :)
Managed to set p2 in qualification, but the race itself was a bit too hard for me. I underestimated aquaplaning effect through the Puddle of Doom (chicane) and damaged my suspension hard. And did it twice! In result too much time spent in pits and only p14 in the end. But to tell the truth it still could be worse, couldn't it? :)

WHAT A RACE! You can say what you want about pcars 2. But the atmosphere in this Race was amazing!

Ok had a really nice Race with slow Pace but without any Incident. Just one thing: They again didn't changed my tires. But because i wanted new tires (i just didn't know if the Tires could stay alive until the end) i did another Pitstop. And that one worked, It's strange, but i think i found the cause: When you load your Strategy with ICM it seems to UNLOAD! it actually. Will investigate further.

Anyway even with two Pitstops i got the 8th place just with clean driving. Nearly got @Bluerat and with that 7th position. But only Nearly...
Will upload the Full Recording later, here is just a small one from the last two laps: (Don't know why shadowplay cut some of the picture away...)

It is not shadowplay that is doing that. It is pCars2 using a Rift doing that. The mirrored display is not scaling correrctly. If you want to record the whole screen with the correct UI scaling then you have to set your mirrored display to 2xxx*something.

No Bad so far. Quali was 1s of my possible pace, however Start @ P7 and finished on P5 due to same problems in the race. My teammate @The Breeze managed P17...so finaly 30 points for Green³
Its a good result for us!

Ah OK, makes sense to me. And I don't really care about that, I just wondered why there was only a small part visible from the speedometer.

Computer crashed after my pitstop where I put it into the wall after the chicane sorry for that. It looks like I might never finish a race this season. Twice computer crashed 1 blown engine and 1 damaged beyond repair crickey. This game is killing me at this rate. I am going to withdraw from the rest of the season due to all the issues I am having. I really am having a good time otherwise but when my graphics runs 100% and my CPU also goes this high I can expect the game to crash but then again it does not happen all the time. I am going to do a fresh reload of Windows and start a fresh install of PCars2 and work from there. Hopefully this will solve my problems.

I have no idea whats going on with this game lol. That first lap my car was like a rocket i went from 19 to 9th i think in the first lap pulling away from everyone like they had my go slow lol. Then a spin on lap 2 saw my car just become undrivable every corner spin on the straights loose traction spin. So i thought must be tires so i pitted for fresh ones. After anoucing i was leaving the pits i almost got took out by someone using the pit exit lane to take first corner causing me to avoid and go on the grass. And it began all over agiain spin every corner loose traction on the straights and spin... can we go back to season two i was have much better luck with that one..

Yeah, try not to go on the grass in the rain, it will take ages to clear the muck off the tyres so that you can get onto normal racing speed again. It sorta makes sense when you think about it but, at the time, it is VERY frustrating.

I'm really (genuinely really) sorry, but – I'm going to have to bail on this one as well. Not ideal.

Started feeling a bit rubbish on Friday. Bailed from work earlyish, vegged out on the sofa for the evening. Had to go to a conference for a friend over the weekend (long story), but had a headache all day Saturday and all day Sunday. 'Just' a cold, but didn't feel great all weekend.

This morning, got up, didn't feel any better. Logged in at work as sick, decided to lay low and try to get better.

Fast forward to just now, and I had a pre-booked 'Pete's in his forties' health check about an hour ago. Almost bailed on it, due to not feeling great, but thought the fresh air might do me some good. They did all their bits and pieces, including taking a couple of small blood samples. Felt a little bit lightheaded soon after that. Told the nurse, she didn’t seem too bothered. As I left, something felt properly not right, but thought it might be a stood-up-too-fast rush of blood to the head, so just carried on. Going downstairs, it still hadn’t cleared, and my vision started going sparkly. Rushed down to the ground floor as fast as my increasingly wobbly legs would carry me (grey matter was still working well enough to know that if ‘something’ was about to happen, it happening on a flight of stairs would probably be bad!), staggered up to the reception desk, grabbed onto it hard, told them ‘I don’t feel too good’, they looked worried and told me to go sit down. Legs went to jelly before I got to a seat, so I just crouched. They eventually helped me up and took me to a room to lie down for a bit. Must be the closest I’ve ever come to just randomly passing out. I don’t recommend it. The lady at reception that looked after me said that when I lumbered up to them, I was white as a sheet, almost yellow.

So yeah. Methinks me not up to racing tonight. Bloody love Donington, as well.

Honestly didn't think I'd get to four races in, and only being able to do one of them, so you have my sincere apologies. Really wasn't the plan. I wanted to spend races racing, not not racing!
Get well soon Pete. Wish you all the best mate

The race was gr8!! Enjoyed very much. The concentration went to pot when the flashes of lightening started and I spun out on the start finish straight and hit the pit wall damaging the suspension and radiator with 34 minutes left to go!! Had nice clean battles in the front before things started going wrong. I apologies when I was about to get lapped by the front runners and had a spin in first corner as was not sure where the cars were (Left or right).
Arms felt like jelly because of the steering FFB. Need to work more on concentration and race stamina (Better get the dumb bells out!! Lol)!!
