    READ THE INFO IN THIS THREAD!
    It will only take 2 minutes and should ensure a clean(er) race.


    Track:
    Mosport (Download)

    Practice:
    19:00 GMT
    Qualifying: 19:10 GMT (10 minutes - See Notes Below)
    Warm up: 19:20 GMT (3 minutes)
    Race 1: 19:25 GMT (25 Mins)

    Quali for Race 2: 20:05GMT
    Race 2: 20:15 GMT (25 Minutes)

    Start
    Rolling
    . We will move off the grid double file and do one slow lap. This is not a racing lap! Wait for the car ahead of you to move away, then maintain a gap. The leader is expected to set a reasonable pace (NOT A RACE PACE). Do not swerve about, stick to your side, stay behind the car ahead, maintain the gap. No sudden braking. Towards the end of the lap, the green flag will be shown (message in bottom left corner) and then you can race. This is the first time we are trying this start in the club, so everyone be on your toes and be careful. Consider the formation lap a red zone. Any questions, ask them in this thread now - no excuses once the session has started.

    Qualifying
    You will have 4 laps: one out-lap, 2 hot-laps, and an in-lap. This is in order to avoid traffic congestion when qualifying. Do not exceed 4 laps or you will be DQ'd and will start the race from the back of the grid.

    Conduct
    Do not be a moron on the first lap and cause avoidable crashes by being overly aggressive. People will no doubt put time in to practice for this event and don't need their fun ruined by stuff you'd see on a public server. It is a long race, you won't win it in the first corner. You've been warned.

    Additionally, I recommend doing a little practice with a grid of AI cars for a few laps; it is very different from hot lapping and the experience of running in packs of cars will help keep the event clean and fun for everyone.

    I must admit I'm a bit concerned about the formation lap... while the track is amazing, I do feel there's something wrong with the couple of really slow right-handers - they don't ever feel right, no matter what car I try, and in the case of the Metalmoro it's really easy to lose traction there, from the 10 or so laps that I did earlier. But we'll see! Excited about this one :)

    I know, but it's got to be better than a standing start - it was chaos at Jo'Burg last week, and some people reported issues with a fast rolling start. So, if everyone just takes it easy and slow on that formation lap it should all be okay. It's down to the drivers really.

    I would join Andrew, but this game causes me motion sickness and I don˙t know, why Reiza guys don˙t fix this ridiculous world jumping.



    I˙ve tried all real head motion setups I get online, even copied RealHeadMotion.ini from my rFactor2, where head motion works as it should work, but nothing helped, so that˙s the reason, why I don˙t race this beautiful game any more :(

    That's very strange, I don't get that except of course over bumps. What you have seems to be the exception. :/

    Sorry to leave you one guy less for an already relatively small grid but I can't make it today. Have a great race and remember it is a rolling start - read the first post. Take it easy, vote it on at the right time, and have fun. Sorry I can't join you, I was really looking forward to this long challenge.

    Thanks for your response, mate :thumbsup:.
    FOV is set to 25, so that could be a reason, but I have the same low FOV in all the other games (rF2, AC, RRRE ...) and there I don˙t have that problem. Too bad, because you organise so many interesting races here I would like to join :(
