Where can I get stages to practice before event?
Quote from hooligan_rallyteam :Where can I get stages to practice before event?

You can't practice the event stages but Finnish Rally Server is a place to practice other stages. That requires S2 license though.
Sooooo, I drive stage first time on actual rally, right?
Quote from hooligan_rallyteam :Sooooo, I drive stage first time on actual rally, right?

Yes. But like I said, you need S2 license for that because Demo players can't drive layouts or tracks like Westhill/Fern Bay/Kyoto Ring etc. in Live For Speed.
Can you tell me more about it- "If you can't drive during the event day due to work, school or something else, you can drive couple days before the event." ?
It means when I dont have real time to drive event I write to you about it and you make event special for me or how it work?

It works exactly like that.
Do I need to be a member of the team to participate?
Can I use other fake lights than in the link?
Quote from versiu :Do I need to be a member of the team to participate?

Having a team-name is a must. It can be your own, it doesn't really matter as long as there is a name.

Quote from versiu :Can I use other fake lights than in the link?

Yes, absolutely.

So I tried a new discipline after couple of years break - tried to be careful and finish,this is how it ended in 2nd stage. My virtual Mitsubishi Colt was not amused...
