Daytona with qualifying point.png


*The yellow highlighted area (The start finish area, turns 7 and 12) is marked in sim by the yellow line at the bottom of the banking/inside line of the oval. Whilst in the yellow area, you should not be overtaking cars or taking it as a natural racing line or at race speed. The only time you should be over that yellow line is if you are recovering from an incident. If you have an incident that has caused you to miss the banking, or not enter the banking at the start of the corner, only then can you take the inside line as rejoining onto the banking mid-corner could be dangerous for you and other participants. To clarify, you should not be on the inside of the yellow line at any point unless specified, not the race, not qualifying, not to overtake.

*The green highlighted areas permit the only time you are able to cross the yellow lines, this is simply to take the natural racing line.

*The purple highlighted area is the part of the circuit where you are permitted to cross the yellow line only to enter the pit-lane. This should not be done to overtake someone. If you are pitting, make your intention clear.

Are the weight changes iRacing added for the 24 being implemented or no?

Ford drivers will be racing themselves if what they say is true, Ford being the slowest :(

Do you mean the slowest again? Note for season 10 suggestions: a separate Ford championship

Only logical conclusion is that VRS is lying

The other 3 are driven by the same person, Ford has a different driver so there's no point comparing the laptimes

So basically the rule is don't come off the oval onto the apron?

Also what BoP has been in place this season? I didn't know there was one?

Fords have been a bit quicker around Daytona then Ferraris, based on some practice on the weekend. I guess the 24h and this race will confirm it.

I think the fuel tanks are bigger than usual for the IMSA races this week. Will ours be 55% like normal?

I liked the way it was at the Nuerburgring - I did not pay any attention to fuel saving until 5 laps before my first Pit stop. Was starting to fuel save in the second half of the race and was short just a view liter to avoid a second stop. And messed everything up by taking tires at the second stop.

But next time I would be better prepared by knowing my fuel consumption, do some practice how to fuel save start w/o missing my line and might have a strategy option to compensate my lack of pace. ;-)

@Argon / @Marvin should I have been added to the reserves group chat by now? As far as I'm aware I've been confirmed as a reserve but still not in a group chat for Daytona next week?

We make a chat for every round separately, but there haven't been any absences yet, so no chat yet.

Ahh okay, I knew a chat got made for each round but I would've thought the chat was made even before listed absences as the chat would most likely get used on the Monday anyway for first come first served. Different people do it different ways, no worries :)
