    Tried hosting a race server today and the qualifying and first race went fine without a hitch but we were suppose to have a second race (using the double race format) and instead of getting a second race we got put on the grid and could not see one another and the race finish coutdown started after around 40 seconds. The session was also still oddly called race 1.

    Has anyone else run into this issue?

    We also tried this on server with 3 races and in second and third race we couldn't see anybody on track.

    It wouldn't be Sector3 if everything was working correctly from the first try!

    It wouldn't be man-made if everything was working correctly from the first try.
    I can see you're clearly not from this planet (space frigate Cpt.?) so you have to appologize our human fallibility. ;)


    EDIT: Added to the bugtracker, tnx for reporting.

    Seeings we're talking about 2nd race, I was trying that today using the reverse result of race one, yet it never happened on all occasions, I was always starting the 2nd race in my finishing position of race one, unless I'm reading the meaning wrong?

    AfaIk the modes that revert the order will only revert the first 8 positions.

    Hmm, I really think it wasn't.

    EDIT: Looks like there wasn't any mention of those R2 options at all actually...

    Had this issue, too, today, luckily, I was streaming this test event, so you could even see, what happened. The difference to others was, that we all could start but couldn't see one another. Even Crewchief reportet on actions like pit stops...

    First race ended at approx. minute 17:00 then the session transfer started

    Nope, we were only 5 or 6 people in the server and the 2nd race with reverse grid never happened. We couldn't see each other and noticed that the map showed everyone else in the pits (although all were in track).

    Perhaps a little off topic, but in Single Player will there be an option to change this number?

    Because on the server you can set the amount to reverse. Also on the server it's possible to have 3 races, will this also be included in the Single Player?

    That was about the SP race settings.
    So the dedi switched to the second race (unlike what the OP reported) but then produced this error?
    I believe so. IIrc there was a "for now" mentioned in regard to the # of positions that are/can be reverted. Same goes for the # of races I believe. I think the goal is to have the same options available in both sp and mp.

    Sorry, I didnt get that you were talking about SP.
    I'm a little confused here, thought I had the same issue with the OP. Here's what happened so to clear things up:
    -First race finishes without problems
    -Dedi server goes to warmup phase, with one minute countdown for the 2nd race, reverse grid option selected.
    - Everyone clicks race (we were on teamspeak)
    - Everyone is put on the starting grid but cant see anyone else except himself. Everyone else seems in the map still in pits.
    Hope everything is clear. :)

    That's the same like it happened in my session yesterday.

    Question: where could I select the option to reverse grid in the second session - on the server options I only see an option to set it global and not individual to each of the possible 3 race sessions?

    My understanding of the option is, if you turn it on, the second race will start with the reverse finishing order of race 1, and the 3rd race will use the reverse finishing order of race 2. If you dont want a 3rd race, just put the race length to zero. AFAIK as of now you cant have ONLY the 3rd race to reverse grid, it either both (2nd and 3rd) or none.
