    Pre-Season Race - MX-5 Club Series at Daytona Road Course
    Wednesday, May 22, 2019


    After last week's race at Monza in the technological rides known at GT3's, this week (and every alternating week throughout the season) we are stepping back and dropping into the Mazda MX-5 Miata for some great racing action. Time to work on blipping the throttle (if you so wish) and finding the braking threshold in these incredibly fun racers!

    Now you may ask...so, what makes this series different from the iRacing Advanced MX-5 Series?

    Well, for one thing, we didn't want to make it very different, and in face, we wanted to encourage everyone to participate in the office series as well, so just like the upcoming GT3 season, this series will use the same track and layout as the official iRacing series!!

    But there are some differences too.

    1. This will be a fixed setup series. The fixed setup needs to be downloaded and placed in the setup folder (.../iRacing\setups\mx5 mx52016) and the server will be set to force this setup for everyone to use.

    Setup Download: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachmen...5-baseline.sto (You may have to right click and "download as" depending on your browser settings)

    This setup is the same as the baseline setup in iRacing, except that more fuel was put in the tank....why? See #2....

    2. Race lengths will be 40 minutes long. The baseline setup's fuel level was way too close for comfort on making that distance, which is why we are using a modified version. The official series runs 25 and 45 minute races, with the longer length requiring a pit stop. We didn't want to have pit stops, or make these races too long, and 40 sounds about right. After the race, be sure and let us know what you think!


    For this series, the admins wanted this to be more fun, less stressful, and still be a way of working on your racecraft and driver development! That's why we went with a baseline setup, so that everyone could spend more time on the track turning laps, and less time tweaking the car. Work on being a faster driver, finding the faster line, and in the race study your competitors and find a way to get past. All of those factors will end up making you a better driver all the way around.

    For this week's race, we only want everyone to show up and race, don't worry about car numbers or classifications, we really haven't made decisions on any of that yet. There will be a points championship for this series, the rest will be ironed out soon.

    As always, an Orange Zone will be in effect for the first lap of this race:



    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.

    The Orange Zone will run from start of the race to the exit of T3 (exit of the International Horseshoe)


    Notes for the race

    Be mindful of cars exiting pits, do not cross the blend line!!

    If you wreck, HOLD THE BRAKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Pit stops are NOT required for this race!

    No Incident Count Limit or Fast Repairs (Future events will have an Incident Count Limit)

    Have fun!
