    Event Notes

    1. Weather conditions such as rain, sky, humidity, outside temp, track temp, wind speed, and direction may change for each race.

    2. No mandatory pit stop.

    3. Fuel usage will be set to 2x.

    4. 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.

    Starting 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. Pole sitter should use pace speed of 62mph (100kph).

    B: If a driver other than the pole sitter advances past other vehicles during the formation lap, they are required to allow all cars in their class pass by them and start the race at the rear of their class. If they do not follow this procedure they will receive a NQ for the next race they attend.

    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. 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.

    D: The race starting point will be at the exit of the last turn on to the Start/Finish line straight.

    E: 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 anyone found doing so may receive a NQ for the next race they attend.

    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 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

    Please stay within the white lines. It's really in all of our interests if you do! Be aware that the built-in track policemen will give you a warning then a penalty or penalties if they think you have gained by the corner cut.

    IMPORTANT! These penalties are not under the control of the race admins, and drivers have to fulfill them or after a few laps, rF2 will DQ your entry.

    Race Comms (Teamspeak3)

    • Comms quiet during Qualfying so others can concentrate.
    • Driver's meeting will be on Teamspeak, not in text.
    • All drivers should use Teamspeak 3 until after the drivers meeting.
    • Drivers are welcome to disconnect from Teamspeak or continue to monitor race control after the drivers meeting.


    Important Series Updates

    Drivers! Be sure and read these two updates to the series.

    Head's up drivers. I just found out Steam has updated their client software in the past few hours.

    Run Steam well before an event because it takes a few minutes to update the client, and you have to restart Steam.

    This isn't rF2 or S397. rF2 may have its own updates.

    This is strictly on the Steam side, but will slow down you joining the server nonetheless.

    Server has been updated with the latest updates from S397.

    Be sure to get on the server before race night to make sure everything is in working order!!

    Never let up for a second....or that may be where you finish!

    Endurance Pack Update 1

    LMP3

    Norma M30-LMP3 2017 v1.51
    - Updated tires

    The latest update has changes to the Norma's tires so you will defiantly want to put some laps in before the next race to learn the changes.
    I haven't had a chance to test it yet so no idea what changed........

    Never let up for a second....or that may be where you finish!

    There were 6 guys on the server tonight and I think all had custom skins............
    So not sure why you would be having a problem.
