As you can see we are not doing a full formation lap. The formation and acceleration zones are on the Nürburgring GP track.

Let's see, if you get damage in turn 1, you'd have to nurse your car back for 9 minutes (read: 7 laps on a normal track). Oof. :)

As my rear wing is a target for people (Texas, Sonoma), PLEASE be careful guys :D.

we all need to be SOOO careful :D

and please please please everybody check their mirrors all the time.
and please don't force to overtake if there's no space - better wait 5-25 corners than ruin at least two driver's races.
and please stop blocking if someone waaay faster approaches you.
and please don't weave left and right and left.
and please drive as if it where your own car you worked 25 years for.

I'm hyped. But a bit anxious :D

These 2 point are kinda contradicting mate. You ask the fast drivers to have patience behind a slow driver but then you ask the slow drivers to avoid holding the faster guys up. I agree on the guy behind should be patient but you shouldn't just give a position away just because someone is faster than you but can't overtake. We are still racing here afterall. The rules are as they've been for the past 4 races in the season. It's still the attacking driver's responsibility to not make contact with the car in front.
If you're talking about blue flags, then that's a different situation altogether of course. Then you should let the lapper through.

Generally there aren't many places to overtake on the Nordschleife itself other than the last sector from the long straight where the track widens. And then of course there are plenty of overtaking opportunities on the GP track as well

This will be difficult and everyone needs to be aware that the racing line through 3 sections of this track force this situation.

I agree with everyones comments so far and I will be extra cautious, I hate this track. Too many corner/gears to remember. I will be taking care to avoid stupid moves right at the start and in tight spots. This track gets narrow in lots of places.

Na, not really contradicting.

If you're faster you'll probably get around quite quick. BUT. Do not force it. And if you have someone waaay faster behind you - way of course you can race! No matter if 5 corners or 5 laps. As long as you don't hinder the one behind you in a somewhat "unfair" way.

I just meant e.g. if you are running 8.35 times and the one behind you is running 8.20... well at somepoint there will be things happening if the faster driver is becoming impatient or the leading driver thinks "nope, not today not ever".

Or you notice that you're up by 10 seconds to the one behind you... but 20 corners later he's DIRECTLY at your rear wing. That's something where you should ask yourself "well how long can I fight OR does it even make sense."

In close racing - as long as you keep it fair - fight from start to finish of course :)


btw: you as in "everyone" not you especially. Obviously. But wanted to make that sure :D

Hi

hi after acc zone where do we have right to overtake? In normal track it is after finish line
I don't actually think we've given that a thought, but I'd say after the right hand kink is probably fine
