    Logitech G Championship Series: Round 3: Formula A at Azure Circuit

    Round 3 of the Logitech G Championship Series is now open.

    Enter via the Community Events screen in-game, on all platforms. You will be driving Formula A at Azure Circuit.

    Only teams which registered during preseason will be eligible to score team championship points.

    All drivers are eligible for driver championship points.

    In the 2016 season, there are separate Divisions for PC and Console players. The PS4 and Xbox One physics/handling code is the same. There are some minor differences between the two consoles and PC, which is why we have separate Divisions for PC and Console.

    Event regulations

    Please read the FULL regulations on our Esports website. It is your responsibility as a competitor to read these. If you breach the rules either deliberately, or accidentally, ignorance is not an excuse.

    TRACK LIMITS

    It is critical that you obey the rules on track limits.

    Drivers must use the track at all times. For the avoidance of doubt, the white lines defining the track edges are considered to be part of the track but the kerbs are not. A driver will be judged to have left the track if fewer than two wheels remain in contact with the track. These images from a previous Round may help you to understand what is valid, and what is not.

    It is possible that you can cut the track or run wide without the game penalising you, and therefore your time & ghost will still appear on the leaderboard. SMS staff will review all of the ghost laps in the top 30 positions on all platforms to check whether drivers have stayed on track for their entire lap.

    If we can see from your ghost that you cut the track or ran wide at any point, then we will not include your time in the official results.

    In exceptional circumstances where many drivers go off track, we may have fewer than 20 valid times in a Division at the end of the event. However, to avoid further confusion this season, we will no-longer consider times from outside the top 30 to fill out the remaining points positions if these circumstances occur. Only the top 30 event ghosts will be considered from now on.

    You must obey the track limits rules around the entire circuit, but please pay particular care on all wide kerbs, on any tarmac/concrete/painted run-off areas and in any areas of sand, gravel or grass.

    At Azure Circuit you should be particularly careful at the few corners which are not completely surrounded by barriers. This includes Sainte Devote, Nouvelle Chicane, and both Swimming Pool chicanes.

    If you are unsure which corners these are, please see this circuit map.

    Improved times with track cuts

    If you improve your time on the leaderboard, but exceed track limits on your new lap, then your time will be eliminated. If this happens, we do not roll back to your previous valid lap time. Only your fastest lap on the leaderboard at the end of the event will be considered for the final results.

    Therefore, if during a lap you think that you might have cut a corner or run-wide even slightly, please back-off & abandon the lap, rather than set an invalid lap for the leaderboard. Otherwise you risk setting an invalid lap that you cannot replace with a faster, valid lap before the end of the event, meaning you miss out on possible championship points.

    DISPUTES AND APPEALS

    If the SMS staff decide that your ghost is marginal on track limits, we may contact you to ask for additional evidence. The only additional evidence that we will accept is chase camera footage of your actual lap, not of the ghost. In light of recent events in the NCS, any footage you give to us must now include the final corner from the lap before your flying lap.

    If you think that your lap is close to the limit of the track at any point, please save the replay. Then if we ask you for any additional evidence, you will be able to provide us with chase camera footage of your lap.

    Failure to provide this footage can result in your time being left out of the official results.

    We may also request this same video evidence if you claim after the event that a lap deemed to be invalid by SMS staff, was valid. The procedure is the same as the one above. Failure to provide this footage will result in your time being left out of the results.

    Assists

    You should be able to run with assists on. In "Help & Options" if you turn the individual assists on, or set them to "Real", you should get these same settings in the event. However, only the chosen car's real-world assists may work.

    Good luck this weekend!

    Reference points for you guys who are participating in this:



    A pretty messy lap I did yesterday, but I still managed to get 2nd overall best time across all consoles and top 1 on PS4 by a huge margin. If I put in more time there's no doubt that I can shave it down to a high 1.09. I also used a very realistic cockpit camera so I'm pretty damn sure that you guys who are in this will do a lot better than me.

    Hi there,

    FA isn't my fav but I'm in for some low altitude heli flying

    Quick question: How will wall bouncing be dealt with? I expect this will happen a lot on this track.

    good luck all


    ps.: Just to be sure:
    In order to save a/the replay of a lap in this event, the only way is to use external software to record a videofile (there's no ingame 'save replay'?)?

    I'd love to take part in these events, but my event list just doesn't appear to update. I posted on the forums yesterday:
    http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/sho...mmunity-Events

    I'm sure I must be missing something obvious.

    Found this thread this morning where Stepan Vondrak identifies a fix. Some problem with a flaky game cache, very frustrating! (Thanks Stepan).

    Well since I haven't seen it in here yet.... What is the rule on the curbs in T1, the nouvelle chicane and the whole pool section. There are no white lines providing any kind of boundary. Am I allowed to take the whole curb as the track or what?

    The rules aren't very clear since there are no white lines to go off of.

    The rules are not unclear, you need to read them again.
    Curbs are not part of the track. That means you need to touch the tarmac with 2 tyres then.
