VHR Racing will once again host a free practice each Wednesday night from 8:30 to 11:30 PM EST. In past seasons these sessions have proven to be a fun way to practice, as well as get to know each other a little better. We look forward to having you guys join us. I know I can use all of the practice that I can get!

The track temp was WAYYYY off between the practice session and race this week. What is the weather & temp setting being used for the race? Dynamic Weather or custom? I'd like to get it as close as I can for the practice.

Hey Shawn,

The race sessions are set to dynamic weather and dynamic sky, and the time of day advanced at 1X. The time of year for the Long Beach race 2020-12-19 which can make a difference in the temp as well. Sometimes the default day in the hosted sessions are something like May15th.

This is what Barber is set to if that helps (The start time though is three hours earlier than the actual race time to accommodate the 3 hour practice):

Thanks, Owen. This is helpful. I have been using dynamic weather & sky, along with ball parking the start time. I think I may have missed the sim date though. That is likely the difference.

Just discovered this, if you go to the schedule in the new UI you can click on drive now and test drive or create a hosted session and it automatically puts in the same weather, car, and track settings for the race session.
