    • Points in Time Attacks will be awarded on the basis of the fastest overall lap time achieved
    • Every participant receives a score and appears in the Time Attack competition ranking

    Great idea but I have a question: If only the 4 best of each time attack contribute to the overall ranking, how then can 96 people quallify for the multiplayer races? 4x6=24:D I must have missunderstood something, either math or that announcement

    The 4 best positions out of these 6 time attacks will count for the result from which the 96 drivers get to the multiplayer races.


    By the way, I found a mistake.
    "No distinction is made between Novice, Amateur and Novice." I think it should be "...and Get Real.".

    Then after 6 time attacks you'll have 24 drivers in that ranking. They are quallified ... okay. But where does the rest come from?
    You need 16 people per time attack if you want 96 drivers after 6 rounds.

    You don't get it.. :D

    You drive all six time attacks. Now, only your four best time attacks (with the best position) will count in the final Time Attack result and from this result the 96 drives get taken out for the MP Race.

    We have been warned, your nickname says it all.....:)

    @RaceRoom, @Sector3
    Thanks a lot, I made a similar suggestion (96 Drivers/4 Servers for a competition) during the DTM Virtual Champ and strangely had it all over my mind during the last time :) ...Telepathy seems to be real...:D
    Guess the Top 100 (Leaderboards etc.) are those drivers who are really into RRE.....and deserve to get a chance ;)

    Ok, now we have to set a laptime limit, so that the fastest guys can't drive faster then the limit so we normal people have a chance :rolleyes:

    Track limits are strange in R3E. Especially in the first corner:rolleyes: ....not your fault tim... but as the organizer of this cup, S3S should make sure that track limits are handled properly.
