• 5/16/18 Sportscar Trophy - Rd1 - Driver's Briefing

    Round 1 of the Sportscar Trophy marks the dawn of a new era for iRacing at CMS - The LMP1s are here! Experience the prototype rocket ships blasting around the Glen, while the blue-riband sportcars of the world do battle in GTE and GT3. This should be a great first round on a classic American circuit.

    Dynamic Weather
    Race 1: Morning
    Race 2: Late Afternoon


    The "ORANGE ZONE POLICY EXPLAINED" This zone constitutes the outlined Orange Zone area on the track during the 1st Lap. This zone should be regarded as a PASS WITH EXTREME CAUTION area during the first lap of any race. Should an incident occur because a driver chooses to attempt a pass within this “Orange Zone” the driver initiating the pass will likely be held responsible.

    Outside of the Orange Zone, clean and responsible driving is the order of the day. If you begin to spin, hold the brake down so your car's actions will be more predictable to drivers attempting to negotiate the track safely. Please take the utmost care and use your Relative Black Box (F3) to safely rejoin the track if you have an off.
