Shelby – The Patras Champion

Big round of applause to our new champion around Patras!!
The event was held at the ever popular simracing-gp.net

Thank you all for your support that competed in this event.

With 37 entrants, Shelby blew away the competition effortlessly. We hope to see you at another SRGP event in the future!
(regular league racing every Weds – Sat and Sundays!

We will still update the loading screen for those of us using the “Old UI ™”
But we will also add a board on the pit exit displaying the current champions name.

Below is the list of the top ten entrants

RF2 Loading Screens… Bummer…

Those of you that have opted into the new beta release with Rfactor 2 will have noticed the new track loading screens.

Whilst we agree that the track map generated from the aiw files is awesome, it also brings the end to the traditional “modder made” loading screens.
We are a little disappointed.
Not only will authors be less recognized, we were hoping to put the current hotlap champions name on there!
It was an awesome way for league holders to point people towards their websites too.

Nevermind… It does look great though!

We do agree that there needed to be some consistency in the screens, and whilst bare, it has certainly done that!

So whoever wins the hotlap competition, we are really sorry that your name won’t be shown while the track loads, but it’s out of our hands.

We will find a place for you on the website instead!

With that said… Keep up the great work Studio397. We all know you are under huge amounts of pressure with so much work to do to bring rFactor2 alongside other sim-racing titles.

POST UPDATE>>>

A fellow racer has come up with the idea of the hotlap winner being posted on a billboard track-side… What a great idea! This will happen in our next update.
