    Speed Trap Rule:
    The Brazilian Formula Truck series places a speed trap on the track, usually on the main straight, as means of slowing the trucks down for safety. When you go through the speed trap zone, you will have slow to 160 kph (100 mph). If you do not, then your lap will be invalidated (Practice & Qualifying), or you'll be given a drive through penalty in the race.

    The speed trap zone is designated by orange cones on the side of the track. As you approach the cones, you'll see the speed trap HUD element flash in the top left corner of your screen to alert you to slow to the 160 kph speed limit. You should also see the speed trap location indicated on your track map if you're running a map.

    Once through the speed trap, you are free to speed back up to race pace.

    Why does it always happen that when some really cool new stuff arrives I'm away for the first club race using it?? The conspiracy theory is starting to get to me...:cautious:

    Count me in please! I did not really try those yet, it does not seem so easy... :cautious:

    No conspiracy but it has been pretty difficult to convince Reiza to postpone a bit the release... :whistling:

    I'm in hopefully. At this rate is there any chance of a Sunday night race? Seems like we would get more numbers.

    Hehe, I made my first test drive of Formula Truck on Bathurst and it was pure fun. Top speed was 250 km/h :confused:. I say we should try it for the sake of fun :)

    7AM for me... But who cares? I'm in! I can't miss this epic event.

    Edit: btw, since we are not going to die doing this, can't we remove the speed trap? :D
