    It will be at some point, splits separating drivers based on their rating and reputation, automatically? Or I will be in the same grid as very top and very low rating drivers if the entered the same server?
    Thanks

    Just out of curiosity: would it be ok to sign up for multiple championships simultaneously (when the schedule allows it, obviously)? The only part I find a bit unfortunate is that the different levels are associated with different classes, I for one would love to race F4 cars as well, it's a quite different challenge from GT3 for example, but driving amongst rookies would probably be a bit unfair.

    The way i understand it is you can drive all series youd like (if scheduling allows for it as you say) and there shouldnt be any problems joining the f4 races because youll still be grouped by rating

    I'll have to skip this one as I'm on my summer break from sim racing but the changes are in the right direction, 60 minutes is a better race distance and the switch to thursday is also ok for me.

    I'll try to watch the broadcasts though!

    Do one need to participate in both Rookie and AM/Pro rounds in order to be rewarded with 500vRPS?

    Do you have to pick the same car for every race or you can pick different cars for different tracks? I didn't see that specified or I missed it.
