Hey everyone,

Due to certain reasons I would highly appreciate if we could delay the event procedure for the league on monday evenings by 16 minutes. I talked to @Stevie and @Stephan in a private conversation, they said it´s basically possible but it depends on if all other participants in the league are ok with it. So they recommended to ask you all in public and here I am. :whistle:
If this wouldn´t work for you at all then don´t hesitate to shout. If you don´t react to this then I guess it will be taken as a "I´m ok with it".

I´ll copy + paste what I wrote to them because I´m lazy and there´s not much more to say really:

Hey guys,

I now have finalised my schedule for university and apparently I got a couple of courses on monday afternoon/evening which are planned to end at 7pm (British time - not possible to take them at other times). Depending on if I have to wait for tram/metro it takes me about 20-25 minutes to get home. Adding another 10 minutes to get everything ready and loading into iRacing I´ll be able to get 1 quali lap in if I´m very lucky. (As this would be the case if we assume that uni ends right on point 7:00).

So I wanted to ask you if you see any possibility to extend the practice session before qualifying by 16 minutes? To be fair 10 minutes also would help and even 5 minutes could decide If I can make the start of the race or not. I´m just asking for 15 minutes so I don´t have to run for my life on my way home. And I maybe could get the chance to eat a snack for dinner before the race which I doubt would work otherwise.

I´m not expecting you to do this, I know you have your own schedules and a well-conceived timeframe for the league. I´m just asking you if this is something you could imagine to think about. I won´t quit immediately from the league as I´d definitely try for 2-3 weeks at least. But if it won´t work there aren´t many other options to chose from to avoid uninformed/last minute no-shows from my side.
Which would be sad because I enjoy driving in this league.
**Note: @Stevie already made me aware of the fact that it´s not possible to simply add 16 min of practice due to iRacing being iRacing. -> Delaying the whole process would be the only option**

No problem for me, as long as 15 more drivers don't ask each other for a delay :p

No real issue, but if we move it by another 15 minutes I am withdrawing my support for this request.

15min is ok for me too, but any more than that and it’s getting too late in my time zone

Agree with @Stephan, It's ok but just slightly annoying because of time zones and the races already ending pretty late for a weekday over here.

That would actually work better for me, I finish shift at 19:00 and by the time I'm back I will usually only have time for 1 lap as well!
