Hi everyone,

I've seen in the Schedule section of this PCars website that there is an event every weekend.

When I browsed today in the community racing menu, inside PCars, I could see that all the events were already finished.

So for example, tomorrow at the time of writing, there is LGCS Round 7 from Friday, sept. 2nd to Sunday, sept. 4th.

Will this event appear in the in-game menu, in community driving ?
And if the answer is yes, is it just a hotlap ladder ?

Sorry for asking these simple questions but I've just started playing PCars and I'm looking to understand how it works.

There have been various events running since the release of the game, but the main focus these days has been on the e-sports events (Logitech and NVidia series competitions - these are open for anybody to enter, by the way, you don't need to have signed up to take part :)) and other tie-ins to real-world events (not just racing but computer game-related events).

Thank you for your answer. So I just take part in the event and my laptime will appear after a valid lap. Ok pretty simple :)

If you're quick and you want to score points in the Logitech and/or NVidia competitions, you will also need to make sure you respect the track limits - at most of the tracks, it is possible to take 3 (or 4) wheels outside of the white lines at certain points, which would disqualify you from scoring any points. Bear in mind, however, the competition is nearing the end - there are only 4 rounds left in one, and 3 in the other.

I'm a pretty clean driver, don't worry :D It may happen sometimes that I go offroad but it only would be a mistake :)

Yeah I agree we are towards the end of the season. It's no big deal since I guess there will be a new season afterwards. So now is a good opportunity for scoring some points, just for fun.

Pardon me again, but on the 5th of september, there is the LGCS Round 7 online qualifications. How many people can attend the online qualifications? The top 20 drivers for example? And at the end of the online qualifications, is there a race between the fastest drivers?

It doesn't concern me a lot because I'm far away from the top 20, but it's just for curiosity and later who knows.

The LGCS and NVCS competitions are open for everybody to take part in and are spread across 10 rounds. There are points awarded to the top-20 finishers, with prizes awarded at the end of the 10 rounds to the top-placed drivers and teams. There are separate 'divisions', split across the formats - one for PS4 and XBOXONE and one for PC.

If you want to take part, just enter the round and set a time :)
