    Event Notes

    1. Weather conditions for this event shall be Partly Cloudy, 40% Humidity, 10C, 5mph North wind.

    2. No mandatory pit stop.

    3. Fuel usage will be set to 1x.

    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 an 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 an 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 fewer 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 (Discord)

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


    Important Series Updates

    Drivers! Be sure and read this update to the series.

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

    I might, depends on the numbers. I know several people who plan on running P2s but haven't ran laps on the server yet.

    Some tracks in the schedule, like this one, are better running as the GTE than the P2, not to mention the GTEs are easier to drive and setup. Might influence car selection

    I'm pretty sure he meant he didn't want to be the only one driving in that class, as there were no P2 times on the server until yesterday.

    I think I will prep a GTE also in case we have only 2-3 LMP2's and we (P2 drivers) decide to run in GT class.

    I think I'll prep a P2, just so you guys don't get lonely if the class is thin.
    Feel like driving something a bit out of my norm anyways.

    Bad news, PC crashed tonight, starts up but no display. Display still works though, swapped HDMIs didn't fix the issue. Not sure the problem, it will be looked at more in depth tomorrow. 10% chance of me making race 1.
