    *** Laguna Seca Race Review Pending ***


    Start type: Manual Rolling (see below).

    Orange Zone Info: (What is an Orange Zone? See rules & regs.)




    Orange Zone is through the exit of Turn 7

    NOTES:

    1. All events will be run in 100% dry conditions for the entirety of the race but weather conditions such as sky, humidity, outside temp, track temp, wind speed and direction will change for each race. See Track Conditions above for forecast.

    2. NO MANDATORY PIT STOP.

    3. Fuel and Tire usage will be set to 1x.

    Warm Up Session:

    Once the Warm Up session has started THE TRACK WILL BE CLOSED for the Drivers Meeting and no one is allowed to be on track during the drivers meeting. If someone does go on track while the track is considered Closed they will get a warning message from the Admin to get off the track, if they do not get off the track after this warning in a timely manner their qualifying position will be forfeited and they will be put at the back of their class for the rolling start.

    Start Procedure:

    A: For this series, we will continue to use a modified rolling start. This will include a one-lap, single file rolling formation lap controlled by the driver that won the pole position for P2 and GTE. For the start of the formation lap the GTE and GTC class will be considered one class. Once the green flag has dropped the P2 class will start their formation lap following the Pole Sitter at a pace speed of 60mph (100kph). The pole sitter for the GTE class will wait at least 5 seconds before the GTE and GTC classes start their formation lap at a speed of 60mph (100kph).

    If a driver other than the Pole sitter for the P2 or GTE/GTC class advances from their qualifying position at the start of the formation lap they will be required to allow all cars in their class (GTE & GTC are considered one class during the formation lap) to advance and they will have to start the race at the rear of their class field. If they do not follow this procedure they will receive a NQ for the next race they attend.

    B: The race starting point will be as show below:



    Everyone close up before Turn 10a, which is the left hander at the bottom of the backstraight, and when the field reaches the bridge at the top of the hill, the Prototype and GT Class Pole Sitters will accelerate to the start/finish line. No one is allowed to accelerate or pass another car until the S/F line.
    Anyone found doing so and having an advantage over the driver ahead of them before the start/finish line will be penalized. 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.

    C. 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.[/B] This could easily cause an accident with another car anyone found doing so may receive a NQ for the next race they attend.

    D.
    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.

    E.
    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.

    F.
    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.

    Pit sharing:

    Be aware that some of the tracks that we use will have less pit stalls than we have drivers. Therefore it is very likely that you are sharing a pit stall with another driver. The best way to deal with this is for you to always pit as far as you can to the inside of the pit stall. This way if the driver your sharing with pits on the same lap as you, there will be room for them to receive pit service as well. If done correctly this works quite well. If you have never done this I recommend you practice this until you feel comfortable with it. Essentially you are splitting the stall in half. If you pull too far to the side the crew will not service you. If you don't pull far enough to the side the crew will not service the driver you are sharing with.

    Track boundaries:

    Unless otherwise specified in the driver briefing all CMS league wide rules and regs regarding track boundaries are in effect. Both qually and race replays are reviewed and anyone found to be routinely abusing the track limits will receive a NQ (no qualifying for the next race you attend) or even the possibility of being DQ'd from the results if abused constantly throughout the race.

    FOR THIS RACE, AND ONLY THIS EVENT, EVERYONE CAN USE ALL OF THE KERBING AT THE EXIT OF TURN 5 WITHOUT PENALTY.

    Let me clarify right here and now regarding Turn 5, the left hander that exits the esses and has a lot of kerbing to the right.

    Everyone will be able to use ALL of the kerbing in this area without penalty...just remember that pushing the limit through that corner has very, very bad consequences!

    As for the rest of the circuit, you must keep two wheels between the white stripes that define the limits of the racing surface.


    If you have ANY questions regarding this track, it's time to ask them!

    When I click on either the mod or track download this bright orange screen pops up with the following: THE SITE AHEAD CONTAINS MALWARE Atttackers currently on cmsracing2.com might attempt to install dangerous programs on your computer....etc.

    Anybody else seeing this? I use Malwarebytes (and Windows Defender) but it does not appear to be their notice, it's something I've never seen before. Any ideas?

    I started getting this notice from our file host site as well.

    As an alternative, I'll temporarily change the links to the mod and track files.

    I guess I didn't realize that Race Department required an account to download files, I've had a free membership account with them for so long as they're the go to place for sim downloads.


    OK, give this a try
