    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, tire compound, 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 1 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 1 will be 35 laps long. Drive safely during the race, especially at the start and the first lap in general.

    Warmup 2 will resume after Race 1 and will last 10 minutes.

    Race 2 will be 18 laps long, and will invert the first eight finishers in Race 1.

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

    17 Laps would not meet the distance "requirement".

    305 km X .30 (percent) = 91.5 km

    91.5 km / 5.303 km = 17.25 (laps)
    • Agree Agree x 1
  7. Well, Hockenheim was 20.1 and it was only 20 laps. :p But whatever, I don't mind, I was just wondering.

  10. Did i miss something???
    Wrong grid.
    You set Celiento, Valeriano and vd Niet in front of Alex Díaz who did the allocation before all of them.
    Alex noticed you about it.
    No action.

    You finished 3 races, but 3 laps down in a 18 lap race you finished not classified. You must finish 90% of the race to be classified.
  14. This rule should be changed, not my fault you have had an accident and my car being screwed around and I want to at least finish the race, that after a ridiculous start in 1st race.
  15. Formula 1 have the same rule...
  16. But unlike ACE score category .. and there does not earn points for qualifying for the race, so I know if you already have classified earns 10 points.
