One Off Event – The F2 Challenge- Live 19/06/2020 3PM BST

Recommended Posts

I’ve finally had a brainwave!

As we are under a month away from F1 2020 being released, and we all need our racing fix, I’ll be adding one-off events for a bit of fun.

This week is a F2 race meet around the Hungaroring, featuring both a 25% sprint race and a 50% feature race. Open lobby, so first 19 people to join me at that time will meet me on track.

Anything interesting or funny happen? For recordings and stuff, also add them here for all to have a laugh at. This is a VERY laid-back event, and as long as its raced in good spirits, all should enjoy!

No points or prizes, just a bit of racing to start your weekends! PC Platform, sorry.

@BarryBLon the topic of F2, how about a GP Weekly Event with F2 cars?👀

Although you probably already created all Events that are gonna release for the rest of 2019 / start of 2020, but would be a nice one off for sure

We are finished on 2019 as you can imagine @ReimvomSchleim, but I like the idea for the Weekly Events for 2020 however. Gives the players something a little different. Will mention it for discussion

That’s definitely a good idea. I personally didn’t give much love to the F2 cars but something like this would be better

@BarryBL Will there be a One-Shot Qualifying and are custom setups allowed?

edit:

Also F2 2018 or 2019 cars?

Regardless, sounds fun, I'll try to be fast enough to join😊

Could this possibly be extended over to ps4. 

There are plenty of top people on here willing to do this .

Unfortunately I've fried my PC. 

Overcooked it 🍖🍗🧂

Can you even do 5 lap sprint AND 25% feature? 
25% sprint is usually about 5-6 laps anyway. 



Something to think about @BarryBL and something you can tell the devs after we encountered it: 
What tires you do quali on doesn't matter for what you start the race on. and what you start the race on is RANDOM .. 

Very fun in the sprint race if everyone's on the softer tire and you're on the harder i can tell you. 

I'll try to be there if i can get myself an early weekend from work

Yeah good spot @Bicarda

Updated race distances after testing distances- 50% feature, 25% sprint.

First race was fun. Heavy defensive lines and slow apexes from me for @UP100 and ls_K whoever that is here.

Sadly I was bumped from behind a couple of times at the start of the Feature race which lost me a lot of time and positions. Managed to get through eventually but @Flash-224 was already too far ahead. The battle at the Sprint Race between @Flash-224 and me was awesome though.

Here is the fight:

In the following are the results.

@BarryBL were you crashed out both times or did you seal your own fate? 😄

Here's my view (P20) from the feature race start crash:

Managed to finish in P9 (after starting from P20) with a Soft-Medium-Soft strategy, happy about that. The sprint race had a broken lobby and I was forced to retire..

@Wiidesire ah you use the forums. I believe I hit you in the back early in the race thanks to some problems with my connection. Sorry about that 😕

@UP100 It's ok, I only lost around 5 seconds and took no damage. The game set me on a worse Soft - Medium strategy in the Feature race anyway, Flash-224 was lucky to get the faster Medium - Soft tires 😉

So ridiculous how fast you were @Wiidesire, I hope I didn't slowed you too much in the feature race.
I wish I could have been in the Sprint Race too, but the game sadly decided to desync or something and I was not able to rejoin.
