    [​IMG]Starting procedure

    This event will be in the spirit of the V8 Supercars event meaning that we will use a standing start.

    Pitting procedure

    to avoid any pitting incident please follow those simple rules, the pit exit is in T1 so stay to the right of the track until after T2. The pit entry is at T12 so you will have to map a quick chat button saying " Your name is pitting " that you will use on the straight before T10.

    Cutting rules

    Two wheels must remain in between the white lines at all time there is no exception on this track. if you happen to cut during qualification you are required to abort the lap by lifting the throttle enought so it won't be your best time. If you cut during the race make sure your no gaining any advantage and if you do it is required to lift the throlttle for 1 second.

    New to the series

    To make things even more like the real series we are now using the fix gear box meaning its no more adjustable and everyone is using the same gearing. At each race the gearing might change depending on the track, how the gearing is determined is by the end of the longest straight we either very close to the rev limiter or hit it just as we are about to brake ( no more then 1 second on the rev limiter). There are 4 gear box available and they are the real series one.

    Why are we not running the 2012 version

    The answer to that question is simple, there is a problem with the mod that need to be solve first, the grip level at the rear is not what it should be once we hit the race session making the car very oversteering in corner.

    No money, no team racing.

    Damnit! I so want to race with this, but I can't. I haven't paid my broadband service yet (infact it was a "test for free for 6 months deal I had) and one day it just stopped working. I can still surf on the web, but anything else... Nop.

    In the end the mod should be in
    C:\Program Files(x486)\Steam\SteamApps\Common\Race07\GameData\Teams\FVR_Addons
     
  17. Comes up as path does not exist please try again type in four times?

    C:\Program Files(x486)\Steam\SteamApps\Common\Race07\GameData\Teams\FVR_Addons

    The above is a wrong path. It should go to

    C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\SteamApps\Common\Race07\GameData\Teams\FVR_Addons


    Another thing, the patch is not necessary. It is a graphics fix for FVR 2011 and doe's not effect the online ability of FVR 2010 what so ever.

    Tony, the installation path will depend on where you have your Steam installed.

    Can you please let us know your Steam installation path (ie. where you have Steam installed)?
