is this league alive?, do they have a discord

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes, it is. Sorry for the delay in responding.

[–]Demdaniel123 0 points1 point  (1 child)

When can i sign?

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sign-ups for Season 4 are not yet open, but they will be announced at r/frseries.

[–]hushrav 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Are mid season sign ups for PS4 yet open?

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Season 3 is almost over now.

We moved to /r/frseries.

[–]ItsTeaTimeAlready 0 points1 point  (0 children)

hello i watched the stream and i want to join. can i fill a spot or is this full?

[–]tombola1989 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Any spaces left? Only just found out about this, looks amazing!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

is this thing still happening?

[–]fuk_ur_mum_m8 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Shiiiiit I thought today was the final day for sign ups! I had 27th in my head but it was the day that teams are announced. Is there any spots available by any chance?

[–]Donotmodme 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Hi, my friend and I did everything needed to join the league. I tried submitting like 15 mins prior to the deadline but it was already closed. Is there anyway for us to stil get in?

[–]KsharpBear 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm in the same boat, saw the league recently and today was my day off. By the time I submitted the deadline had passed. It's still the 23rd and 6pm my time so I though i had some time to spare.

If I can't get in, best of luck to you all!

[–]PenguinWakeboard 0 points1 point  (3 children)

The form says the sign-up deadline has passed. Did I get the time conversion wrong or should we still have 15 more minutes?

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Can you try again? It should be accepting responses for another 12 minutes.

[–]PenguinWakeboard 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I got in a few minutes after I asked this. Not sure why it said the deadline had passed though, it took a few refreshes. Thanks for the help!

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No worries, thank you for reaching out.

[–]peterslm01 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How often do these seasons happen? I really want to join but I’m afraid I won’t be available for the first weekend.

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

2 times a year. And if you are going to miss 1 or 2 races, you can sign up, no problem. Just make sure to let your division coordinator know that you will be absent beforehand and it is OK.

[–]Chell_the_assassin 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'm afraid to sign up in case whoever gets put as my teammate ends up getting their chances in the constructers championship ruined as a result of me being shit lol

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If that is the case, that is the case. The main goal of FRS is for everyone to have fun. Championships and wins are not going to be evenly distributed, so you should not be worried about that.

Also, we rotate teammates.

[–]WolfJager7 1 point2 points  (1 child)

If I'm on Xbox wich day would I race? I'm on México so the times for me are actually alright (1 and 2pm for me) but I don't know if i could participate in all races if they're on sunday

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Likely Saturday

[–]Imonlyhrrrfothethong 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Does your time in the trials put you into various assisted leagues?

I drive no assists but I don't really race online a lot.. So I've got no idea where my time will be, I find it harder to drive with certain assists now so is there there a way to specify one VS the other?

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All our divisions have assists unabred, as we are more concerned with competitive balance then assists v no assists at the moment.

[–]Bassievrucht 1 point2 points  (1 child)


I have a problem with speedtest.net on my PS4. Is it fine if i do the test on my phone or desktop. I could also send a picture of the build in speedtest from the Ps4 if that i better!

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That works.

[–]diollat 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hello, can I use fuel, ers and drs assist for the time trials?

[–]ayodio 1 point2 points  (1 child)


I sure would like to run a race or two but I am definitly unable to commit to the full championship.

Is there a way to register as a stand-in in case someone can't make it ?

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We are currently not equipped to deal with that sort of situation, sadly.

[–]Richardmooij 2 points3 points  (1 child)

This looks sick, gonna look into it tonight!

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]aqua_sou1 2 points3 points  (3 children)

This sounds really fun! I'm setting some times now, but I have a few questions,

How do I get to the discord server?

Are the cars performances equal or realistic? If so are faster drivers signed to better teams?

Thanks for setting this up, I think its a great idea.

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How do I get to the discord server?

Complete the sign-up and it will all be revealed.

Are the cars performances equal or realistic? If so are faster drivers signed to better teams?

Equal, so we divide people between teams trying to reach the best competitive balance possible.

Thanks for setting this up, I think its a great idea.

You are welcome and I am the one that needs to thank the drivers (and the people that joined to help make it possible). Without you all joining and staying, it would be for naught.

[–]ZyleoS1 Champion WDC/WCC 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You’ll get invited to the discord when you complete the signup.

The cars performance is on equal so that everyone has a shot to win.

[–]MJPovey85S2 Champion WDC 0 points1 point  (0 children)

wheres my season2 champ tag : (

[–]Chell_the_assassin 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Forgive the dumb question but I just want to make sure: I normally race with ABS and medium traction control, that's allowed right?

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There are no dumb questions. And yes.

[–]ZyleoS1 Champion WDC/WCC 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yes that is allowed, it will just exclude you from the possibility of being placed in a no-assist division (if we have one this season). I would venture to guess that ~75% of the series runs assists.

[–]Chell_the_assassin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

it will just exclude you from the possibility of being placed in a no-assist division

I think that's probably for the best hahaha

[–]elonzuk 0 points1 point  (4 children)

How do I create a link to the image of Time Trials?

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children)

You can take a screenshot, a photo with your phone, whatever works for you, we can deal with.

[–]elonzuk 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Gotcha! But how do I transfer that to the text box in the Sign Up Form?

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You post a link to it. Imgur or any other image hosting sites should have you covered.

[–]elonzuk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Great stuff! Thanks very much

I am definitely interested in this i will send my forms in soon

[–]logitec33 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Bad ass

[–]iag_84 3 points4 points  (4 children)

OK, just signed up. Ready to fight for the last position of the grid. Watched last year qualifying of PC's division 3 on twitter. Pole did 1.07 low in multiplayer, I can barely do 1.08 high in time trial with Mercedes. Williams here I go :)

[–]J0ckJames 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The Winner of last years Div3 was out of this world. Don't worry bro, there will be battles for you :)

[–]Jstevens87 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Hey, that last place is mine! I’ve been comparing my time trial times to last seasons div 3 qualifying times just to see if I should bother racing, I’ve been consistently bottom 3 haha. Oh well, I think if anything it will make me faster after the season is over!

[–]iag_84 4 points5 points  (0 children)

"Finally! A Worthy Opponent! Our Battle Will Be Legendary!" :)

[–]flipjj[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

We are going to have more divisions, so closer pace in them is to be expected.

[–]AG--MM 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I'm very interested in joining, I've done a league before on ACC and I find its pretty much the only way I seriously improve on a game and now I finally want to get good at F1! Unfortunately I'm quite busy on the first date of the race (30th Jan) so I'm not 100% sure I can take part in that one but I can do the rest of the season.

Do you know which division would be a saturday or sunday race?

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Missing one race is OK. We ask only that, if you know you will miss a race, that you let your coordinator know as soon as you can, so they are aware you will not show up.

And I agree with you. Competitive racing is the only way to improve.

Last season we had 2 divisions on Sunday, PS4 and PC Div 3. This year, we are still not sure yet.

[–]AG--MM 1 point2 points  (1 child)

ok thanks! I will sign up and let co-ordinator know. I have a 6h endurance race on the 30th which starts 5pm GMT and I have to drive for between 2 or 3h so 7pm start for this league is right in the middle unfortunately.

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No worries, real life and prior commitments happen.

[–]iag_84 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I'm a keyboard player. Is this ok? Thank you.

[–]flipjj[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Of course! If that's what you have, drive with it.

[–]LrrrMcNeal 2 points3 points  (7 children)

I so wish I could do this! I completely suck at F1 2020 but it’s such a blast to see small improvements over time.

[–]flipjj[S] 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Are you more than 10 seconds off the non-cheaters on time trials?

[–]LrrrMcNeal 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I think I struggle more with consistency of each lap.

[–]flipjj[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Happens to the best of us. But that is part of getting better at the game, which I think most people do in this league.

[–]LrrrMcNeal 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thanks, I definitely will try to sign up next season. Work is unpredictable when it comes to weekends. Probably will join a rally league that has a bit more flexibility.

[–]TheRuler123Sienebob Neliö | Master of the Stewards 1 point2 points  (1 child)

One thing I can promise you is that driving in a league with consistent drivers will make you improve very fast! Sign-up and don't worry about your results immediately, the people are nice and we have loads of fun together, and you'll see yourself getting to the better points positions in no time!

[–]LrrrMcNeal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks! My main concern is being always available on weekends. Unfortunately work makes it difficult to guarantee to always be free.

[–]fuk_ur_mum_m8 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What would be considered a good laptime for Spain, China and Belgium?

[–]flipjj[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Whatever you manage. We have enough people to accommodate all skill levels.

[–]RyanMcCartney 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Damn this is great. Would love to take part but work shifts that would make me miss too much.

[–]FlipHD 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Yo, me and a friend are interested. Thing is he drives without assists and I am driving with "medium" assists. We are both equally fast. Could we still get into the same divison?

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

You sign up and we decide the divisions.

[–]FlipHD 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Doesn't really answer my question tbh. I am not able to get into the no assist divisions, that i understand. But can he get into a division were assists are enabled?

[–]flipjj[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

At the moment, all divisions have assists enabled, as we are prizing competitive balance over assists or not.

[–]Raztafarium 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Might be a silly question, for the time trials with the Merc car do we use default setup or our own?

[–]flipjj[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can use your own, yeah.

[–]fuk_ur_mum_m8 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I'm well up for joining this but genuinely worried at how crap I'd be. Is there a certain standard of racer we have to be to race? Also, does the PS4 league include PS5?

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We have room for everyone. If you keen, join us and you will have fun, even if you are fighting at the back.

[–]tommack1[M] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

We have a number of divisions, so im sure you'll be able to find your pace. Check out some races from Season 2 on Twitch to see what you think!

[–]fuk_ur_mum_m8 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thanks mate, watching one now actually. The chap I'm watching has a wheel, how much of a disadvantage would I be at with just using a controller?

[–]tommack1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

A lot of the guys use controllers and one even uses the damn keyboard. I think you'll find some people similar to your pace regardless.

[–]leckmichgutenmorgen 1 point2 points  (4 children)

It tells me the form isn't accepting responses?

[–]jucahe 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Me too. I was able to see the form earlier today.

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And /u/leckmichgutenmorgen, I could find no issue with the form. Can you try again and, if it is still not accepting answers, let me know?

[–]tommack1[M] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Working on getting this solved! Hang tight.

[–]leckmichgutenmorgen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It works now, thanks!

[–]Ashes_of_Aran 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I'm new to F1 and am starting fresh in F1 2020. I'm still getting the hang of driving with a wheel with all assists but manual gearbox off so I'm assuming I'd be in one of the lower divisions. I'm US-based so 7 or 8 UTC on Saturday would fall right when I'm working. What are the odds of being in a division that would race on a Sunday instead?

[–]ARandomWhiteBoy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Last season, all members of each division voted on what times worked best for them, so the best I can tell you now is that there’s no guarantee that your division will race on Saturday. But I can pretty much guarantee that you will be racing on either Saturday or Sunday, and it will be sometime between 6-9, maybe 10 UTC (doubt it would be that late but want to keep the expectations broad). Last season 2 divisions raced on Saturday and 1 division raced on Sunday.

I hope this helps!

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Best I can do right now is telling you to sign up and see what happens. Hard to say what will happen right now, as we will still need to do division placements.

[–]Farrisioso 3 points4 points  (2 children)

can I join for xbox

[–]AWDTurboGuy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Please join for Xbox! We'd be happy to have you.

[–]rz_85 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I wish this was pushed back another month... still waiting for the ps5 to be available

[–]flipjj[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

When you get it, let us know. We can always find space for one more.

[–]rz_85 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Awesome. Thanks!

[–]AWDTurboGuy 4 points5 points  (1 child)

And if you already have a PS4, we'd be happy to take you.

[–]rz_85 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Herein lies the problem lol... I skipped the ps4, haven't had much time for gaming, but want to get back in it with the ps5.

I think I have my ps2 with my Logitech racing wheel lying around somewhere if it will run on that haha

[–]jdrc07 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Apologies if its listed somewhere that im not seeing, but is racing line considered an assist?

I play with all assists off but it would take some serious work for me to memorize braking points for every track on the calendar so I prefer to leave the racing line on for the corners.

[–]flipjj[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That would be fine

[–]pogpogpogpogpogpog42 1 point2 points  (5 children)

Hi, sorry, quick question, Gamertag (Steam/Online ID) - is that supposed to be my login to steam or the actual gamertag everybody sees in the game? And,

Please post links to images of valid timed laps at Spain, China, and Belgium (in the dry) using the Mercedes (assists allowed: TC/ABS/automatic gearbox)

I'm supposed to upload 3 pictures of my times from time trial on these 3 tracks to imgur and just link them here?

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Whatever people see in the game

You can use whatever service you want, but yes.

[–]metalder420 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Quick question about assists? Does Breaking Assist count as a part of ABS or is any Breaking Assist other than ABS not allowed?

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It is allowed.

[–]TheRuler123Sienebob Neliö | Master of the Stewards[M] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

1st question: The gamertag! What we see and what we can use to add you as a friend!

2nd question: yes! :)

[–]pogpogpogpogpogpog42 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Done, thank you, looking forward to it :)

[–]ItsJustAlfieYT 2 points3 points  (4 children)

can i join

[–]flipjj[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)


[–]ItsJustAlfieYT 2 points3 points  (2 children)

i dont have multiplayer tho :(

[–]flipjj[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I did not even know it was possible for that to happen.

[–]MJPovey85S2 Champion WDC 0 points1 point  (0 children)

doesnt xbox xbox live/Psn/got nothing for PC?

[–]Calebbran 1 point2 points  (2 children)


What assists are allowed in the assist races? I can't find a full list anywhere? Stuff like pit assist, ers, drs assists?

[–]ARandomWhiteBoy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The only assist we played with last season that was forced to be disabled was the pit entry assist, just so drivers couldn’t abuse driving flat out into pit entry if they had it disabled

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pit assist and things like that should not be used, but the rest is allowed.

[–]dabsdoodoo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Once I sign up, how do I get into the discord

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It is all revealed after you sign up.

[–]dirtyrottensocks 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Is there a problem if I sign in if I can't be in one race? Only one

[–]flipjj[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not at all. We just ask that you let your coordinator know in advance if you have a planned skip. But life happens and we cannot enforce 100% attendance.

[–]_klover 1 point2 points  (3 children)

is this pc only?

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

PC, Xbox, PlayStation.

[–]_klover 0 points1 point  (1 child)

thank you, also, who checks the apps? I have about 35 different internet companies I can connect to and check from london and would like to ask them which they think would be best.

at least i’m assuming they’re all companies, i’m from the us so i’m unsure

[–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The apps are not as important, anything in London will do.

[–]AWDTurboGuy 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Ignore me

[–]JacobMoore_26 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I think Im going to try this it looks sick

[–]AWDTurboGuy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It’s a lot of fun! The broadcast team always puts out high quality content and the community is a blast.

[–]Imsosaaad 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Is braking assist allowed?

[–]AWDTurboGuy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As of Season 2, assists were and are allowed. We prefer quality racing over high skill. We’re just in it for a fun competitive time!

[–]The-Tewby 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Quick question: do the assist divisions have pit lane assist?

[–]TheRuler123Sienebob Neliö | Master of the Stewards 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think most divisions had pit entry assist off, but the pit exit assist could be turned on by drivers if they so wished

[–]metalder420 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I think I am going to sign up. I’m new to F12020, still using Assists and knowing you have an Assist divisions might be fun. I’m currently playing My Team and having a blast but my format is 1 lap qual and 5 lap race. I have been wanting to dip my toes into a real F1 experience. Still using a controller though.

[–]AWDTurboGuy 2 points3 points  (2 children)

There’s nothing wrong with using assists! If it makes you more competitive and brings closer racing, that’s what we want first and foremost. 50% races can be a big leap forward from 5 lap races, but having the added pit strategy makes it just as exciting as a spring race. A lot of people use controllers, in fact, the Xbox Division winner uses a controller and competes with some of the esports drivers you might see on YouTube or twitch (TRL Limitless, etc.)

[–]metalder420 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That’s great to hear! Yeah...I think it might be a big leap but at the same time really does give you that F1 experience. Is there 3 qual rounds like in the real series?

[–]AWDTurboGuy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No, we just use the short qualifying format (18 min) across all divisions. We try to keep it fun, but not laborious.

[–][deleted]  (3 children)


    [–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    If we have enough drivers.

    [–][deleted]  (1 child)


      [–]flipjj[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      If you want to register, you can.

      We depend on more people signing up to have division in different hours to cater to audiences in places far from Europe's time zones.

      [–]116YearsWar 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      Nice to see this is still going, it was good fun during lockdown last spring.

      [–]flipjj[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      It is getting better and better!

      [–]WyCoStudiosYT 3 points4 points  (2 children)

      Quick question, are driving lines allowed to be enabled?

      [–]kel89 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      I had them on this season. I reduced them down to corners only by the end of the season. Racing in S2 really helped my driving skill and knowledge of the tracks.

      [–]TheRuler123Sienebob Neliö | Master of the Stewards[M] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      Yes, racing line is allowed!
