Acceleration Zone:


If you are unsure about the Manual Rolling Start procedure, please read the instructions and watch the explanatory video.
● Once the leader of the single file train has pulled away, they can accelerate up to a speed of 80mph/130kph and will then maintain that throughout the lap, slowing down clearly and gradually for any corners that require slower speeds, and then accelerating up to the limit of 80mph/130kph. The rest of the drivers in the train are to follow the leader around the lap, sticking to a similar pace and maintaining safe distances to drivers around them for tyre and braking warming.
● At the formation point, the leader will slow down to 50mph/80kph and the 2nd placed driver, will pull alongside to form a second train. Pole will ALWAYS start on the side where he can defend the inside to first corner.

Notices:
● Rules & regulations:
Before you take to the track in the league race, make sure you are fully aware of the rules and regulations of the leagues. As a driver in our leagues, you are required to do your very best to ensure clean and fair racing at all times.
● No-shows: If you are unable to attend the race, please inform the Tier Coordinator and leave a post in this thread BEFORE the race takes place. Note the rules of participation here.
● Lobby settings: If you are unsure about the lobby settings that will be used, look here.
● Save your replay: As a means of helping the stewards with any enquiries, all drivers are required to save their race replays and keep it stored for at least one week after the race has taken place. If you are involved in an incident or see something during the race that you feel needs to be investigated, you are free to make a stewards enquiry - however if enquiries are submitted without replay or race footage available, it is likely we can't do anything.

Remembering from the GT3 there was some confusion with the start and wanted to share some thing with you :)
As you can see on the picture bellow the actual start for the next lap is with the starting of the green line. At AOR we are doing things a little different (some times) so I wanted to make sure that you are all aware of this:
- As the leaders of the two trains roll across the grid boxes at the constant speed of 50mph/80kph, at any point of their choice between 2 designated and clearly visible points known as 'The Acceleration Zone', P1 is allowed to go full throttle to signify the start of the race. From this moment, all other drivers are now allowed to accelerate to race speeds, but are NOT allowed to overtake the car directly in front of them in their train until they themselves have crossed over the start finish line the end of the acceleration zone.
PS. The Acceleration Zone is the green surface ;)

The confusion was generated by the highlighted text: the start of the acceleration zone is also the starting line so the 2nd driver on the grid felt entitled to start and pass the poleman immediately after that line, without waiting for him to make his move (accelerating)
So there is still confusion IMHO

Is this the correct thing to do?
"...but are NOT allowed to overtake the car directly in front of them in their train until they themselves have crossed over the end of the acceleration zone."
or not?

You are correct, it should be the end of the acceleration zone.

44s in the dry and 51s in the wet. Are these good times???
for me it's too wet since I'm on 52s while on dry ok.. I've tried so much, much more than Road America but on water I'm not good enough. I hope for podium but i will be hard, i know
