Race #12, Belgium: Race Briefing

Discussion in 'Formula SimRacing' started by Mikko Puumalainen, Sep 2, 2011.

  1. Welcome to the 12th race of the FSR 2011 World Series season at Spa-Francorchamps!

    The password to join the server will be visible when you log in to GPCOS in the Control Center next to the server's IP address.

    Before proceeding to the event, pay attention to the following:
    • Due to the number of allocated drivers being less than 27, a pre-qualifying session is not organized.
    The following drivers have gained the right to participate in the Race:

    Allocations: 19
    Start from back of the grid: 9
    Schedule:
    The Free Practice session will be 10 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.

    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). 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 for the race. Remember, refueling is banned. 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 44 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. The Safety car will not be available for use.
     
  2. Hi Mikko,
    yesterday Gobbi has made partecipation in gpcos at about 21:30 but I don't see him in list, what's the problem?? could be some technical failure?? :confused: Please let me know if he must repeat registration!! It would be a real disappointment having to start from back due to a problem that does not depend on us.

    Thanks a lot.
    Alessio
     
  3. Hi, I looked at the list many times last night before and after the deadline and I didn't see any more names there. He must've made a mistake while allocating.

    The only option is to start from the back of the grid unfortunately.
     
  4. :frown:

    Certainly it has been a problem with page load or something similar! I ask for some clemency to let Gobbi have his chance to fight for Q2!! :pray: This time is not due to his forgetfulness!!

    In any case, please insert his name in start list, thanks.
     
  5. Make sure he allocates before he joins the server, even if it's a late allocation. I still don't see his name in GPCOS.
