    Default 1986 Opala Tribute Series, Season 7 - Cascavel - June 5th

    Welcome Drivers:
    Here are details for the Third round of the 1986 Opala Tribute Series at Cascavel.






    (Att: All Drivers!)Drivers interested in registering for this series, !PLEASE GO HERE TO PICK A CAR AND FIND RELEVANT FILES!

    All drivers are welcome.
    Round 4 of the Opala '86 Series is Tuesday, June 5, 2018, Qualifying at 8PM CST/9PM EST
    (Please be aware that a few slight changes have been made in the formation lap/starting procedure. Be sure to read and fully understand the formation lap/starting procedure before race time. Feel free to ask questions if necessary)

    For this series, we will be doing a server controlled formation lap followed by a re-grid and a standing start. The formation lap will be paced by the pole man at a speed between 50 and 80mph (80-130kph)

    Here is how it will work:
    Once we go to the grid at race time, the sim will tell us when to begin the formation lap. The formation lap will be single file .
    As we approach the grid area, we will begin to slow slightly in the final corner and will cautiously and safely find our spot to re-grid.

    This is easily identifiable. Each driver will be shown a red box around the appropriate grid spot.
    The sim will not start the countdown to green until every driver is in position, so do this safely, there is no need to rush it and cause an accident.
    Formation lap incidents will be penalized heavily in this series because of the more fragile nature of these cars, so be cautious!

    Once all drivers are in position, a set of start lights will come up on your screen and the countdown to green will begin as usual.

    (see Rules, Start Procedure and Full Schedule below)


    Location: Cascavel, Paraná, Brazil - 1.884 miles / 3.302 km
    Cascavel is one of a handful of circuits which appeared in Brazil in the early 1970s, capitalising on the popularity of motorsport generated by the exploits of a new generation of star drivers. A lack of investment hampered progress in recent years until the circuit was given a new lease of life after being taken into public ownership and extensively refurbished.
    The circuit's story begins in 1964, when a bunch of amateur drivers and enthusiasts organised a test event on the streets of the city. These pioneering characters, led by Zilmar Beux, formed a corporation with the aim of creating a permanent circuit. By 1970, they had raised enough funding to buy a parcel of land on the south eastern outskirts of the city and set about creating their vision.
    A course, designed by Beux, was carved out of the rich clay soil and began operating that year, with the races proving very popular. Estimates suggest the attendance at the first race was around 20,000 - not bad consideringthe population of the city at that time was around 90,000! Within short order, the course became a hub for motorsport in the region.
    Disaster nearly struck in 1973, when the Paranaense Automobile Federation decided to ban dirt track racing, citing safety concerns. Beux and his supporters were not deterred, however, and set about paving the circuit. Despite the success of the early dirt events, funds were not sufficient for such an expensive exercise and so new shareholdings were sold in the facility to raise the necessary capital. In just 38 days, the autodrome duly become the first circuit in Paraná state with a sealed asphalt surface. The city's mayor, Octacillio Mionn played a major role in the resurfacing, donating much of the gravel used in the base layers from the left-overs of the city's own paving works.
    Sadly, the opening event on April 24, 1973, was to bring an end to Beux's active association with the track. So consumed had he been with the track constrution, Beux did not have time to prepare a car for himself for the races and so had to stand on the sidelines as his vision sprang to life. One of the competitors on the opening weeking was the new mayor of Cascavel, Peter Muffato, who was an accomplished racer. The media seized upon the storyline of the racing mayor, completely overshadowing Beux's own contribution to the circuit and in some cases reporting that it was in fact Muffato who had presided over the circuit's paving. In disgust, Beux turned away from motorsport altogether and did not return to the track he had founded for another 30 years.
    Depsite the loss of Beux's guiding hand, a diverse calendar of racing was soon established, with the track quickly becoming one of the four main circuits of Brazil. In 1987 one of its signature events was born, when the track hosted an exhibition truck race to test the safety of the concept. Tragically, a fatal accident during the event claimed the life of track president Jeferson Ribeiro da Fonseca, who was been competing in the race. It was not until 1996 that Formula Truck was reborn, with Cascavel one of the founding circuits.
    Brasil's other major series, the wildly popular Stock Cars, paid a visit in 2001, for which a chicane was inserted ahead of the plunging downhill Bacião corner but the following years saw a steady decline in competition as the lack of investment began to show. The major series moved elsewhere leaving Cascavel to busy itself with minor championships, local races and general testing.
    Did you know?
    Cascavel means 'rattlesnake' in Portuguese, meaning the circuit is effectively the 'Rattlesnake Raceway'.
    After 41 years of operating the facility, the Automobile Club of Cascavel — by then chaired by Zilmar's son, Migeul Beux — donated the track to city authorities, bringing into public ownership for the first time. The city government began an extensive remodelling project in 2012, with the entire circuit widened and resurfaced, run-off areas improved and FIA standard kerbing installed. The start/finish was relocated to the former back straight in order to provide a larger paddock area, 36 pit garages and a helipad. Facilities for spectators were also greatly enhanced, with new access tunnels, concessions areas and a restaurant.
    In a fitting tribute, the facility was renamed Autódromo Internacional Zilmar Beux in honour of its chief architect and reopened in August 2012 with a round of Formula Truck, witnessed by an impressive 50,000 spectators. The circuit also regained its position on the Stock Car Brasil calendar in September 2012 and now also hosts a round of the Moto GP1000 superbike championship.

    Race review and penalties:
    The race review team will review the start after each race, as well as review any incidents for which an incident protest was filed, and issue any penalties as appropriate. The results of these reviews will be posted no later than one week before the next event. All drivers are required to read the race review/penalty thread before the upcoming race so that they will be aware if they are required to serve any penalties. Any driver receiving a penalty will also be notified via PM. NOTE: Unless otherwise specified in the driver briefing for an event, the review team typically will only review the start for each event. Therefore if you experience an incident during an event that happens after the Start, you will need to use our Incident Protest Form to file an official protest if you wish to have it reviewed.
