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.

I believe if you join during the qualification that the game isn't allowing you to do the race. Is that true @YabbaTheHutt and @Slicker?

You need to be in the lobby about 4a5 minutes before qualy session ends. Otherwise you can't race. So if i am in, and press ready on time, i can race (you get qualified at the back)

Lobby opens 20:30 session starts at 20:45 race starts arround 21:00CET (20:00 GMT)

I think it is as @Killg0re NL said, you need to be in the quali at least 5 minutes before the end to be able to race. Maybe he can give us a shout on how tight it is as soon as he knows and we can delay the lobby for 5 minutes or so :)

1st practice run last night - 1:55.6 best - mostly 56/57s - looking ok, i think?
I'm on 1:55.7 in quali setup and mid 1:56 with race fuel. Remember that roughly half of the race will be in the dark :oops:
