    Are the races timed or by laps?

    Are they're mandatory pit stops or not?

    Thanks,

    Do they change tyres also or is it only refuel? :)

    Races usually are set to a length of 50 minutes - exception being the "corrida do Milhão" (Race of the Million) which goes on for a little longer - 65 minutes last year, 70 minutes this year.

    The appropriate lengths are set for each track, so if you´re using a percentage setting, it is calculated to the length of the actual 2010 race.

    I can´t understand, why these informations are not available at release time - in an structered manual !!
    As long as much more necessary informations like Firewall/Routerports, use of push to pass .....
    including an rfactor manual .... what a shame for a commercial product

    I aggree bernd. I also wondered in Lap 18 in Velopark that the leade have to mandority pit before lap 20 -.- It ruined my race. I don't understand why there is no manual with all the rules because the game was supposed to be in april, i think in 3months its possible to create a manual :(

    You have to make a mandatory pit stop before lap 20 or you're DQ'd?

    I haven't ran a full race yet, so that's why I'm asking.

    I think he meant, it was a 20 lap race and the AI pitted on lap 18. Is the fuel calculation wrong at Velopark? If so this probably accounts for that.

    I just make a race of the season (50min - interlagos) and also received notification of the requirement to make a pit stop until lap 20

    The real category has this obligation and I think this mandatory pit is encoded in the executable or somewhere else.

    Perfect!:D

    Sorry for the google-English

    Downshift only, I think ... look onboard with the championship leader in the final race at Interlagos!

    Hello.
    I`m new on this forum. Be free to make me questions about real Stock Car.
    I work with stock cars in Brazil, and can help in several doubts.

    If I understand well what I see in the game, we have to make the qualifications with the race settings right?

    against AI in a championship we can't change settings (fuel) between qual and race.
