    Important: The driver briefing will always be posted a minimum of 5 days (normally much longer) prior to the event, and will contain the most current versions of all files required to race. 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.

    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. Once the green flag has dropped the Pole Sitter will start their formation lap with a speed of 60mph or 100Kph. 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 white line just before the main straight

    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.
