    Logitech G Championship Series Round 5: Formula A at Spa

    Round 5 of the Logitech G Championship Series opens today.

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

    The main points from the Driver Briefings are now included in the official regulations as well.

    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, which can be found in the official regulations.

    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.

    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 Spa, you should be careful with track limits around the entire circuit.
    Please be particularly careful in the following corners:

    - Turn 1: On the exit kerb
    - Eau Rouge: On all kerbs
    - Turn 9: on the exit kerb
    - Turn 11: On the exit kerb
    - Turn 12: On the outside mid-corner
    - Turn 16: On the exit kerb
    - Turn 18: On the exit kerb
    - Turns 19, 20: On all kerbs

    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. Any footage you give to us must 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 can run with assists on. In "Help & Options" if you set the assists to "Real", you will get these same settings in the event. However, only the chosen car's real-world assists will work.

    Out of boredom I tried out this event. I used my gamepad and I know I won't be the fastest, but I know where the limits may be. I was seriously surprised to find a 6 seconds faster best time than what was I able to do. Driving against that ghost lap it turned out the guy who did that lap wasn't even driving without faults and the ghost finished with a 1:48.5 instead of the leaderboardtime of 1:43.
    What's going on?

    Did the ghost time (when you press pause mid-lap) show a time of 1:48.5 or 1:43 ? If it shows the slower time, then that person has encountered the problem mentioned in the NVCS thread yesterday, where the wrong ghost has been uploaded.

    Hi,

    I had a try with the FA on Spa yesterday and drove myself on P13. Always a hazzle but as you suggest I checked via replay if the lap was valid and it was so I saved that video.
    Looking at the leaderboard afterwards I saw I was affected by the bug which prevents an upload of the ghost as there is none. Is it fine if I link the video here for you to check and see the valid lap I've done?

    Another issue which came up with the Formula A again is the autoclutch which cannot be turned of for this car. No matter what I set in the options there's always an autoclutch between shifts which might lead to a nice but unnecessary spin in some situations. This is not related to timetrial but the car itself and has been reported here b4. Are there any plans to fix that?

    cheers falke

    Please send the video link to us in a private message.

    There are no plans to address the Formula A clutch at this time.

    Hey,

    I had time & tried once more tonight, this time there's a ghost & it seems to be the right one. No more need to check the video, I'll delete it.
    But nearly forgot to brake for la source and touched the white line on the outside, close but clean - lmk if you need a video for that.

    cheers
