Please make sure that you have read the briefing, have all the correct files installed, and most importantly join the practice server during the week and test that all is working properly BEFORE the race weekend starts. Once the race weekend starts no one will be able to help you in time for you to race, as they will be busy preparing their own race.

    Event Details:

    Server Name: CMS WRS 2017 Race
    Password: See THIS post
    Practice: 11:00pm CST US / 6:00pm UK / 7:00pm CET 40min
    Qualy: 11:40pm CST US / 6:40pm UK / 7.40pm CET 10min (Private - all classes)
    Warmup: 11:50pm CST US / 6:50pm UK / 7:50pm CET 10min
    Race: 12:00pm CST US / 7:00pm UK / 8:00pm CET 75min (1 mandatory pitstop)

    Start Procedure:

    A: For 2017, we will continue to use a modified rolling start. This will include a one-lap, single file rolling formation lap controlled by the race leader. At each track, an area (typically the last corner or something close) will be designated as the spot to accelerate to racing speed, with passes not allowed until crossing the start/finish line. A per-track Orange Zone will also still be in effect. If you lose control on the formation lap, you MUST let all cars pass and rejoin at the end. The penalty for not doing this is no qualifying at your next event. If you cause an accident on the formation lap, you will be DQ'd from the race results, and will not be allowed to qualify at your next event.

    B. Do not weave back and forth, abruptly speed up or slow down, or jam on the brakes in an attempt to warm your tires or brakes during the formation lap. This could easily cause an accident with another car.

    C. Be advised that as the game places you on the grid the car directly in front of you is NOT the car that you qualified behind. It would be the car ahead and in the opposite lane.

    D. As the leader starts rolling you need to allow the car in the row ahead and in the opposite lane to "fall in" behind the car directly ahead to achieve single file in the proper qualifying order.

    E. If you lose control on the formation lap, you MUST let all cars pass and rejoin at the end. The penalty for not doing this is a no qualify/drive thru at your next event. If you cause an accident on the formation lap, you will be DQ'd from the race results, and will receive a no qualify/drive thru at your next event.

    The spot to accelerate to racing speed is when you reach the advert before the last corner

    Pitstop

    About the pitstop, no limitations, drivers could change or not tyres, but a minimum of 10 liters must be filled up.

    Weather forecast:
    Clear skies with a high of 84F/29C. Humidity: 30%. Winds to the W @ 5mph/9kph. Chance of rain: 0%.

    Please be advised that our race servers are set to "closed qualy". This means that once the server has moved to qualy session drivers can not join the server until warmup. So I highly recommend that everyone arrive during practice, ensure that your game and connection are looking solid and if not leave and rejoin BEFORE the end of practice, because once qualy has begun you will not be able to get back into the server until the warmup session. The main benefit of this is guys trying to concentrate on getting a good qualy lap will no longer be distracted by drivers leaving and joining the server.

    Orange Zone Info: (What is an Orange Zone?)



    When exit pits, stay at right, fast cars coming from behind



    NOTES:

    1. Track boundaries
    A. Unless otherwise specified in the driver briefing all CMS league wide rules and regs regarding track boundaries are in effect. Race replays are reviewed and anyone found to be routinely abusing the track limits will be DQ'd from the results.

      I am having a problem getting on the server. I get this message after I arrive at the track and then I am booted

      "Configed vehicle class does not match filters."

      I have all the tracks and the new WRS 2017 S1_c.rfmod added. I updated the endurance package to the latest version for DX11, and CMS WRS 2017 Custom Skins Current version: (C)
      The car seems to be registered
      #45 - Michael LaBelle - P2 - Ginetta Zytek 09S Nissan. 11LM Greaves Motorsport #41

      Any suggestions?

      Thanks

      Hello Michael, due to the small grid since Jerez we only race with GTE class

      You could choose any type of GTE class to enter the race

      See you next sunday!!

      Guys, very sorry about this but looks like will miss the race tomorrow morning. My modem is acting up, I'm losing connection momentarily, sometimes for only 1-2 seconds and other times longer. I have to go buy one at 11am tomorrow morning and that's when this race is my local time. I can't go later because rest of the day is booked for F1 and Indy 500 races (plus America's Cup).
      Hope you guys will have enough drivers to do the race. I got on the server tonight and this rF2 version of the track is awesome, very nicely done. I wish I could make it.
