    Thanks for this experience. This was my first "serious and longer" race online, amazing! Finished second with the TT-RS, and had a long battle with E. Contarin. Very fair and entertaining. Thanks again!

    Pretty much just a little bop adjustment. Some cars are gonna get a bit of extra weight for the race so that the cars are as equal as possible performance wise

    See point 14 in the rules:

    14 Balance Of Performance Weight
    In the race event, the following cars will carry additional weight:
    Mercedes AMG GT3 - 25 kg
    Callaway Corvette C7R - 15 kg
    Nissan GT-R GT3 - 15 kg
    BMW M6 GT3 - 15 kg
    Alpina B6 - 10 kg
    Corvette Z06.R - 10 kg
    Mercedes SLS GT3 - 5 kg

    This ballast weight is not applied on leaderboard. You can drive a different car in leaderboard and race.

    Just read the full rules and there is no mention of whether pitlane assistance is allowed? (I am rubbish at pitstops)

    Just a question, why is the race named as multiclass race, will GT Masters also be allowed during the race?

    GT Masters will be allowed. But I can set only one class in the leaderboard competition.
    I think the "Multiclass" is just copy and paste from last event :)

    I cannot set ballast weight in leaderboard, so it will be only on the race server.

    About pitlane assistance, I use no server setting that prevents it. But since I have never used it, I would recommend trying it out before.

    We had a good race on server 4. I had one unforced error which resulted in a little spin, and I 2 stopped when the best option was a 1 stopper but was happy to get onto the podium. The winner was in a different class to the rest. 1.17 laps crazy. 20190728_203055.jpg

    Short conclusion:

    good:
    - (from my perspective) nice clean racing on server2
    - the cars and the track fit's perfect

    not so good:
    - almost a AMG Cup-Race especially on server1 and 2, the 25 kg where way to less

    bad:
    - the slow downs, maybe for the future change them to "collect" the slowdown times and put it in front of the pitstop-work and/or put them to the resulttime

    Most underrated car from my perspective the P4/5.
