    We recommend you read the manual beforehand which gives details about how to set up the game and the cars within the mod. English Manual German Manual[B][B][B]

    [B]2. [/B][/B][/B][/B]
    Do not over-rev the engine, particularly when in 1st gear, as this can easily lead to a blown engine.[B][B][B][B][B][B]

    [B]3. [/B][/B][/B][/B][/B][/B][/B]
    This race will be a manual formation lap with a rolling start. The formation lap will consist of just the GP track. Therefore, instead of turning left onto the Nordschleife, we will turn right and head onto the Start/Finish straight. This means that once the light goes green the leader gradually speeds up to around 120 km/h (75mph) and drives at this pace towards the last corner. All other cars follow in one line with the same speed. No brake test, no swaying. If you spin your car you drop back to last position and start from there. When exiting the last corner the leader can go full throttle and the rest of the pack follows. No overtaking before the start/finish line. The formation lap will count as part of the 1 hour race.

    4. To enter the pits, you will need to complete a whole lap of the Nordschleife before coming in. The pit entry can be found on the right as you rejoin the GP track pictured:

    5. Chatting of any kind during Qualifying and the Race is strictly prohibited. There is no need to say sorry/thanks/pitting/leaving pits/etc. Anything that needs to be said can wait until after the session.

    6. If you feel you were wronged in any way during an event and wish to report the incident, simply send the event organiser a private message. Please include a description of the incident along with a video. If you are unable to create a video, please include details such as who was involved and where the incident happened with a timestamp. Do not post reports/accusations in the thread itself - negativity and anger gets us nowhere.

    Due to the length of the track, Qualifying will be 20 minutes. You do not have to complete a lap of the Nordschleife on your outlap, as you can turn right at the end of the GP circuit. Please stay within the cones whilst doing so, as to avoid interfering with cars already on their hotlaps.


    Please also read notes 3 and 4 for information about the formation lap (as it is different from other events) and pit entry.

    We have done for a couple of months now, however we couldn't use them for the F1 1992 events for obvious reasons. :)

    Aww i really wanted to do this race since its 1 hour in nordschleife but after 1 year 8months and 22days of use my G25 has given up on me, the pedals were spiking on the throttle which has happened once before a few months ago so i took them apart again to clean the accelerator pot and now when i plug it in, instead of "spin right, spin left, centre " it goes spin "right...stop...spin left...stop...centre...oscillate a bit..." and now pedals and shifter wont work :(

    RIP G25 25th December 2009 - 14th august 2011

    Yep, and with the rolling start, it should space people out a bit more at the start :)
