Does this track not have a starter (flag man) who starts the race?

Yes it has. But if you use the starter you have to restart the event for each run. With a long practice and chat starter it's easier.

Edit:
When you use the starter, drivers on the far left have to look right during start procedure.

I use GPLOMe app which can be programmed for chat messages.

A shame that we only had three starters for the Z1000 drag race but I can assure you, it was well worth the effort.  Great fun and I'd do it again anytime.  Take the hint, gys.

Thanks to Jani for organizing and to Axel for hosting.

They still have some fuzz with the chassis, though.
From my memory F2 was always kind of regularly seen on iGOR. I guess leagues were driving it more last year and less in 2020?

Hi KARTM,Yannik

What do you guys mean by "fuzz" on the chassis?

I'm also another fan of the F2 cars I think they are fantastic and are always a joy offline.

I agree that a league or regular server races would be fantastic.

Many of the GPL cars such as the original 67s onwards up to the 69x the CanAms and even the Sportcar GTs are just too powerful and fast to enjoy on a lot of tracks.

Try the F2s at Monaco, Crystal Palace or any smaller narrower tracks and they sublime.

Paul.

Screen shots taken at the same instant after Doni Yourth(#66)dropped the ball, spun sideways and Jani, with nowhere to go, T-boned him.

Jani recovered from this 'Moon Shot' to score the win.

:)

Not sure if I miscalculated fuel load or the fuel tank was harmed in this accident but three turns later I ran out of fuel and had to reset. I was lucky I could rejoin the track in time.

Despite all the problems of this track I tend to like it.
