    Default CMS-TXL MX-5 Club Series at Watkins Glen Cup - Driver's Briefing



    MX-5 Club Series at Watkins Glen - Cup
    Wednesday, July 17th, 2019


    For our third race of this MX-5 Club Series we head to Watkins Glen, New York where you're usually full throttle and on the brakes little to none!! We will be racing the Cup layout with the Inner Loop chicane, so passing zones galore!!

    After two successful races this season, we have so much more racing to do and with two dropped races, it doesn't matter if you've made a race yet, you still have a shot at the Championship. This series will give everyone to dropped races, so it's your best 8 races for the title!!

    The best part about this series is that it requires very little setup, just make sure you have the fixed setup in your car folder and drive it hard for 40 minutes. No pit stops. No fuel strategies. No classifications. Just come out and race!!


    Before you take to the track, be sure to read through the following:


    As spelled out in the Season 2 Annoucement, this is a fixed setup series so you will need to download the file linked below and place in the setup folder (.../iRacing\setups\mx5 mx52016) prior to joining the server.

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


    Remember that we are using this series as not only a break between the GT3 events, but also as a place for drivers to come out and have fun, be competitive, and work on their driver development and racecraft using cars without tech and downforce!


    There are no classifications in this series, you're racing everyone on the track for position!

    Also, car number assignments are not a part of this series, so don't worry about that either!!



    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 cover from the Starting Line to the exit of Turn 4 at the top of the hill.


    Notes for the race

    This will again be a rolling start, but everyone needs to hold their position until the green flag waves and do not jump the start!!

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

    Pit stops are NOT required for this race!

    There will be an incident limit of 25 for this race.

    Have fun!
