Welcome to Daytona!

The second 90 minute race of the season. Last season we saw some super close racing at Texas Road. We hope to see the same kind of racing here at Daytona. Unlike the race at Texas Road, the race will not take place in the middle of the night. However we will still be racing in the dark as the race starts at 8PM local time.

Race: Fog > Heavy Clouds

Round 8 - Daytona Road
Driver briefing
For this track we didn't find any potential corner cutting which could not get recognized by the in-game track limit detection. Therefore all parts of the track the in-game track limits apply.

General information
Due to the nature of the Daytona circuit, there is no way to do a standing start at this circuit. As a result the starting process will be slightly more complicated than usual:
  • The race session will begin with cars under AI control for a few seconds* - Do not apply any throttle during this time.
  • Once drivers have manual control over their car, proceed at a speed below 120kph until you have crossed the start/finish line.
  • Once all drivers have crossed the start finish line everyone should slow to a speed of around 15kph and move to the far left side of the track.
  • As per coordinator instructions, drivers should then pull ahead in their specified starting order and form a new pack with the correct starting order (as per the reverse championship order).
  • Once the grid has been reformed in the correct order, the lap will continue as per the normal manual AOR rolling start.

*If anyone suffers any damage during the AI control phase of the start, inform your coordinator as soon as possible. Providing it is realistic to do so, you may be released from the pack to go ahead and repair your damage. Once repaired, you must wait at the end of the pitlane for the pack of cars to pass, then rejoin at the back. A second formation lap will likely be carried out to allow you to move forward to your correct starting place.

Race : P2
Wow. I didn't really expect to be able to fight for win the race, I still don't believe it. I'm just sorry for the spin out of the chicane on lap 6 but getting P2 is also beyond my expectations so I'm really happy with the result. I now await the next race to understand and see if this is an isolated performance or if I can actually compete with the top drivers of this tier. Congratulations to everyone, especially to the podium guys! Bye super drivers!!
