NOTE - Practice 1 and Qualifying sessions are only for the driver doing the qualifying (this can be any driver in the team). No other driver should connect to the server unless you do so by using the spectator password.

NOTE - Practice 2 is for each driver to connect. Make sure that Driver 1 (the starting driver) is fully connected and driving the car before any team mate attempts to connect to the server to avoid `driver offline` errors as these can only be resolved by a full server restart.

PIT STOPS AND STINT TIMERS

As per the real life rules, drivers are limited to a stint timer of 65minutes. This stint timer is reset upon leaving the pit lane (although not if you're serving a drive through penalty). Drivers can make their pit stops whenever they like within that 65minute stint timer, however your team will receive a penalty if you exceed the stint timer.

Drivers are also bound to a maximum driving time. These times vary depending on the race duration and they will be shown to you on the HUD and the MFD. You will receive a penalty if you exceed the maximum driver time. You will also receive a penalty if each driver does not drive a stint.

Suzuka 10h will have 7 tyre sets available for the race
Bathurst 12h will have 9 tyre sets available for the race
Spa 24h will have 24 tyre sets available for the race
