Welcome to Le Mans, France!

After visiting the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, we're visiting another legendary track for another night of racing.

Join us at the Bugatti Circuit, a shorter Layout of the Circuit De La Sarthe. The Bugatti Circuit is a permanent circuit famous for motor bike, Formula 3000 and DTM racing.
Did you know it hosted the 1967 Formula 1 Grand Prix of France?

Before heading for the circuit, enjoy the old town of Le Mans, the street cafes, head for one of the many museums or enjoy the well preserved architecture, some if it dating back to the Romans.

The qualifying and race are expected to be a hot, hazy summer night.

Did a 38 with race fuel, but mostly 40/39s messed up some corners badly even in that 38.
Not sure on tires, softs melt, or need babying to last and hards are a bit too cold. Might play with the setup a bit to stabilize tire temps before being able to lap consistently. I believe 37s are doable

Dear fellow drivers!

It came to our attention, that something unprecedented is happening - England is doing well in sports!

As this directly conflicts with our race on Wednesday, we believe we should discuss what we can do about it.

Wednesday sees the semi finals in the football World Cup (for our American friends: you may incorrectly refer to it as soccer, but stand corrected, it is indeed football, where the round ball is played with the foot and athletes don’t need a break every 30 seconds) and England is in it, for the first time since 1990.

As football is the worlds second most important sport, after sim racing, we feel it’s worth discussing to enable our English drivers to be part of both events, our more important race and see England playing for a spot in the finals.

We feel it’s fair to let each tier discuss and decide if we should continue as planned and race on Wednesday, possibly missing some intoxicated English fans, or if we should repeat this race 1 week after the final round.

If we decide to run it as “round 11”, we must pray to the sim racing gods that no other round will need a rerun, due to e.g. a mass disconnect as we reserved only 1 week for such eventualities.

We believe it’s best to decide on tier level and follow the simple majority vote.

@Stephan thanks for giving us this option. I would vote is to run it as round 11.

Not often that England is in the Semi final, and first time that I think they have a good chance to get to the final.

I know it's an important soccer match so I'm open on it. I might be torn if it were the Green Bay Packers playing football. That said, week 11 is very important safety measure so choose wisely. We needed it in S9.

I would rather it be postponed. Maybe even just delay It for an hour or two.

Delaying by 1-2 hours will not work. many of us are not in the UK time zone and it would not be fair towards those drivers (incl. myself). As it is now, the races already end well past 11 at night for me. So, it's a week after round 10 or Wednesday as planned :)
Just to get an overview, hit AGREE on my proposal, so we can keep track.
If no majority to move it is found, we'll run Wednesday as planned.
