    Note: If you already have the track install you have to delete it and download the one from the link as the tdf file have been modify so the sand traps are easy to get out from, Simply extract to your main rFactor folder.

    Event details:
    Number of laps: 18 + 1 formation laps (Approx. 45 minutes)
    Fuel usage multiplier: 2x
    Tire wear multiplier: 6x
    practice start time: GMT 19:00 (30 mins)
    Qualification start time: GMT 19:30 free laps
    Race start time: GMT 19:50 (18 laps + 1 formation lap)

    Formation lap procedure:
    When the green light will appear the formation lap will start, the pole sitter will then take the field around the track in a single line at a speed of 80 KMH. during the formation lap you can safely wave gently to heat the tires but it is forbidden to accelerate or brake excessively , it is require to maintain a safe distance from the car in front of you of at least one car length. When you will come back to the starting grid you will see a red rectangular on the tarmac that's your starting box you need to stop in the rectangle, if you over shot it do not back up stay where you are after awhile the game will place you automatically in your box.

    Pitstop and penalty:
    During the course of the race you might receive a penalty, for those who are not familiar with rFactor you can either receive a drive through or stop and go penalty, in the case of a drive through penalty simply drive through the pit lane under the pit speed limit and resume racing once out of the pit lane. In the case of a stop and go penalty when you will enter the pit lane the pit menu will appear do not do anything simply stop in your pit box and when told drive out under the pit speed limit and resume racing once out of the pit lane.

    to make a pit stop as smooth as possible it is recommended to map the keys you want to use to navigate through the pitstop menu or look at the default keys that are set, it is also recommended to modify your PLR file the following way:
    under
    [ Game Options ]
    Relative Fuel Strategy="0" // Show how much fuel to ADD, rather than how much TOTAL fuel to fill the tank up to
    Smart Pitcrew="0" // Pitcrew does things even if you mistakenly forgot to ask (one example is changing a damaged tire) Change from 1 to 0
    Automatic Pit Menu="4" // brings up pit menu automatically: 0=disabled, 1=upon pit ENTRY, change cockpit menu but do not bring up HUD, 2=pit ENTRY->cockpit & HUD, 3=pit REQUEST->cockpit menu only, 4=pit REQUEST->cockpit & HUD
    Miscellaneous="0"
