GTR2 Manager is a utility to extend the default dedicated server functionality. The
dedicated server Manager adds the following options:

   * Extended info on drivers currently on the server:
     driver name and login name, carname, current penalty, laps driven,
          current gear, current RPM and their best laptimes.
   * RACE mode: pre-configure drivers by entering their full driversname.
           players not in the list can be automatically removed from
           the server. No need to setup and communicate passwords anymore!
   * Give individual drivers a weight penalty between -120 and 120KGs during
     practice, qualification and/or race.
   * Auto move to Qualification session at a pre-configured time, informing
     all drivers of the race rules prior to start.
        * Display informational messages at any given moment in any session.
   * KICK or BAN people from your server, keeping wreckers offline.
   * Drivers are able to set a track-record on each track. Drivers can request
          the current track record from within the game or you can advertise it
          using a message rule.
   * In-game command parser which allows you to configure almost every aspect
          of the manager from within GTR2 ! See remarks below for more info.
        * Alter the startgrid prior to a race during Qualifying session.
   * Give time penalties (extra seconds on best time) to drivers.
        * Auto apply the WeatherFix (as JTSN released it) to the server, enabling
          dynamic weather during the race..
    * Increase maximum number of drivers on a server up to 32.
   * Client crash recovery in Qualification - if you get a BSOD or crash during
          qualification, you will get your time restored when you rejoin.
    * Multilanguage dedicated server support (English, German, French and Italian)


In-game command parser.

within the game itself. Official race administrators can setup a race (auto move to
qualify) or give weight penalties to drivers instantly. The following commands are
