Discussion in 'Formula SimRacing' started by Carlos Martín, Apr 13, 2014.

  1. Welcome to the season opener of the FSR PRO Series 2014 Season! You will find the password for this event by logging on GPCOS and looking at the password field.
    • GMT Times are in effect
    • Read the updated 2014 rules package from this thread
    • Remember to join the game with the FSR Manager software running, and follow the post race procedures here
    • A Pre-Qualifying session is organized and is mandatory for all drivers (see the schedule and listings below)
    • Due to the allocation count being less than than 36, no Grid 2 race is organized as per article 5.6 in the FSR Pro Rules Supplement.
    The following drivers have gained the right to participate in Pre-Qualifying:

    Pre-Qualifying Group 1 (1-20):


    Pre-Qualifying Group 2 (21-33):


    Schedule



    The Pre-Qualifying session will be 10 minutes in length, split in two sessions. The sessions will be run in Private mode without Parc Ferme. The sessions will also be closed, this means that it will impossible for people to join while the session is running. The top 26 from Pre-Qualifying will make it in to Grid 1.

    The Free Practice session will be 15 minutes in length. 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.

    Qualifying will be split to two sessions (10 + 5 minutes). Both sessions will run in non-private mode (all cars will be visible on track at the same time). Qualifying 1 will be run with free setup while Qualifying 2 has Parc Ferme enforced. Parc Ferme will only allow you 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. Qualifying 2 session will be closed, this means that it will impossible for people to join while the session is running.

    The Warmup session will be 10 minutes in length. 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 34 laps long. Drive safely during the race, especially at the start and the first lap in general.

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

  2. Good luck everyone. Be careful in first two corners, saw a lot of incidents in Ace race there.

    T1 isn't enough, make through all corners please people. :p
     
  5. I highly reccomend putting a hotkey saying "Stop N Go" in case the server gives you a Stop N go for going to the gravel. So for example if you press a button in appears in the chat "Stop n Go".

    Good luck.
     
  6. How?
     

  7. Is it allowed to chat??? at race. Also telling them that you got a stop and go etc?
     
  8. Go to your player file, search the line "Quick Chat #1", change the message for Stop N Go and then set a button in game for it.
     
  9. is it in 4 mins or 1 hour 4 mins until we star?
     
  10. /w Carlos Stop N Go

    or?
     
  11. Just say Stop n go in case the game gives you one for cutting for the rest you arent allowed.
     
  12. But wont that go in game chat, then a penalty will be given for speaking during race? :p
     
  13. Idk if this will be sent to Carlos Hernandez or to me
     
  14. Not in this case (speaking about Stop n go)
     
  15. This message will be sent to all the Carlos in the server, so write the full name "/w Carlos Martin stop n go".
     
  16. Where can you assign a button to it ingame?
     
  17. Done it nevermind.
     
  18. Why PreQ 2 has less time to join/to warmup? :S
     
  19. Server Open for PQ: Group 1
