    There will not be PreQualifying.

    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, 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 32 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 16 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.

    Because of some unconventional penalties this round:

    If you set a time in Q2, regardless of grid position, you must use the same compound at the start of the race.

    By rules you have to start on the same compound anyway. Perhaps you mean tire wear will be carried on?

    Yes Marek Godek and Fabrizio Gobbi will have Back of Grid Penalties.

    Renan Lopes will not because he has not been able to even though he tried before the deadline.

    So, if they had problems with gpcos, why didn't they submit them to this post before the deadline to convalidate them as allocation? Cause this post was created 9h before deadline...
    That should be the right way.
    Things must be done properly.

    If they did it later, you must consider them out of deadline.

    Race Director must have evidences. If he hasn't, he must apply rules strictly.

    Sorry if i'm rude, but rules are rules and some interests are involved.

    Tic, tac.
    Have ACE Race Director any evidence already?
    or is he going to adulterate the starting grid?
