Race #12, Hungary: Race Briefing & Schedule update

Discussion in 'Formula SimRacing' started by John-Eric Saxén, Nov 6, 2010.

  1. Welcome to the final :) round of the FSR 2010 World Series (re-run of the Hungarian race weekend). Before proceeding to the event, pay special attention to the following:
    • Due to collision with the Formula1 Qualifying session, the event will be scheduled to start 1 hour later than normally, this meaning Qualifying at 17:30 GMT and race at 18:00 GMT. Note that due to changed daylight saving times, for most of you the starting time will remain identical to earlier in the season. If you are still unsure regarding the schedule, I suggest to double-check your GMT time difference, e.g. here.
    • Qualifying will be run in Private mode. This means that you will be alone on track. This decision was made to prevent slipstreaming in the session.
    • Since this is the last race of the season, qualifying cuts and pitexit cuts will be converted like this:

      Qualifying cut = +30s to race time.
      Pitexit cut = 2 Points Deduction.

      If you have a pitexit cut penalty but don't score any points in this race, then you don't have anything to worry about. The point deductions will only be valid for points scored in this race.
    • Due to the allocation count being less than than 27, no pre-qualifying session is organized as per article 5.9. Every listed driver below is entitled to proceed immediately to Q1.
    Following drivers have automatically gained the right to race in Grid 1:

    Secured Grid 1 place (18):

    Start from back of the grid (2):


    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 session will be 15 minutes in length. It will be run in Private mode (all cars will be visible on track at the same time) with 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. Like Pre-Qualifying, this session will also 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. 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 70 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. In case of light-moderate first lap incidents, a Safety Car may be deployed. The Safety Car period will last 3 laps and there will be no passing during these laps. Keep a safe distance to the car in front, but do not hold up the rest of the pack. The Safety Car will not be used for any incidents which happen after the first lap.
  2. great..dont know if i can complete this race. might have to stop midway through..
  3. If there is more of you having problems with the new schedule, we might have to look into this issue. But after all everyone racing today comes from countries using DST, so the race starts exactly the same time as always according to your local clock. That's why I thought it shouldn't be a problem really.
  4. I was expecting normal racing time.. I can't race if it starts an hour later..
  5. Karim won't probably race because his ISP isn't working.
