    Allocations:

    The following drivers must participate in pre-qualifing. The top 18/24 drivers will qualify for the race
    Penalties:
    Schedule for Sunday 28th June

    12:55 GMT, Server Opens for PQ
    13:02 GMT, Pre-Qualifying
    13:18 GMT, Practice
    13:30 GMT, Qualifying 1
    13:45 GMT, Qualifying 2
    13:50 GMT, Warmup
    14:00 GMT, Race Start

    The Free Practice session will be 10 minutes in length and will be run in the "Practice 1" session. Every participating driver should join as soon as possible after the server opens to make sure that they don't miss the start of Qualifying and also to make sure that their game is configured & working properly.

    The Qualifying 1 session will be 10 minutes in length and will be run in the "Practice 2" session. Drivers can use what ever setup they want, as long as they only drive with qualifying fuel loads.

    The Qualifying 2 session will be 5 minutes in length. Only the top 10 drivers from Qualifying 1 will be allowed to go out on track. Drivers will be allowed to do one flying lap (one outlap, hotlap and inlap). The drivers will all be on track at the same time eg not private. Parc Ferme will be enforced. You will only be allowed to change your fuel load, engine boost, engine brakemap, front wing angle, steering lock, brake balance and brake pressure after the session is over, so make sure you have your race setup loaded when entering Qualifying 2. The session will be closed, meaning if you happen to join late, or for some reason drop out of the server during the session, you will not be able to rejoin the server until the server has moved to Warmup.

    The Warmup session will be 10 minutes in length. While in the garage, make sure you add the appropriate amount of fuel in to your car since refuelling is not allowed during the race. You can drive freely in the Warmup session to try to get a feel for the heavier car after qualifying on low fuel.

    The Race will be 41 laps long. Drive carefully during the race, especially at the start and first lap in general.

    Red Flags will NOT be used unless in very specific situations which are specified in the rule documents.

  2. Hi guys,

    I'm not feeling that well and I'm vomiting currently all the time. I will try do a Webber (Fuji) but I can't say whether I can start or not.

    I can't change my allocation to uncertain but as I said normally I should start.

    Thanks,
    Jacques Wengler

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    29 allocations for Pro.
    If they all turn up looks like Pre Quali.
    @Mike Partington are any of those allocations from no-shows at Austria Pre Quali?
     
  5. Yes 2, there are several returning drivers that didn't race last time and new driver too. Also some drivers haven't allocated yet so expect more. There will definitely be preq.
