Don't forget to register for the race. Deadline for first round invitations is tonight 23:59 GMT.
Gridmails sent. Please read the special rules incase of complete game crashes for all participants.
Stream goes live in a little bit over one hour here!
Or on the FIA WTCC Facebook page.
The old, closed competitions will be re-opened so that new drivers that find out about the eSports WTCC, that don't have a chance in the multiplayer league anymore obviously, have the chance to participate at least in the hotlap championship. And old drivers can improve too of course.
They will stay open until the end of the championship, November 5th.
The leaderboards which are currently active for the multiplayer qualifying will feature a red banner on them with the date of the race, and will always appear in first position on the portal. They will still close one week before the multiplayer race, as they do right now, in order to display the results for the invitations, and will then be re-opened, at latest two days after the multiplayer race.
We are aware that this is a questionable decision in terms of the sporting regulations for drivers that have participated in the past rounds, that might lose positions in the hotlap standings. But it is also a decision that gives more drivers a chance to participate in the eSports WTCC in general.
Penalties released for Spa. Posted stewards team for increased transparency, also for previous rounds. Added an extra steward. Results updated.
