    Welcome to the 13th race of the 2012 Formula SimRacing World Championship season in Korea.

    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:
    • Remember to read the updated 2012 rules package from here
    • Remember to join the game with the FSR Manager software running, as described in the pre-race and post-race procedures
    Allocations: 26
    Back of the Grid penalties:
    Timetable:
    The Free Practice session will be 15 minutes in length and will be run in the "Practice 1" session. 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 ~15 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). The drivers will go out on track one at a time in reverse Q1 order (P10, P9, P8 etc.), with the following driver only being allowed to leave the pits AFTER the previous driver has passed the start/finish line to begin their timed lap. Parc Ferme will be enforced. You will only be allowed to change your tire compound, 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 first stint of your race. 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 55 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.

    Mikko i would like to have some clarification about the pit entry and exit lines. In WS aparantly it was allowed to cut entry line, and the sollid pit exit line is not allowed to cut across.

    Same for WC i asume, and no touch of exit line,.. or do we have to stay within entry line as well.

    Thanks:)

    Yes, you can cut the pit entry line.

    Every pit exit cut will result in a 5 second penalty, regardless of how small the cut is (remember that touching the line is also a cut).

    I will remind the drivers of this on the server before the start as well.

    What, it was allowed to cut the entry line??? I've read somewhere that I can't find anymore that it was not allowed to cut solid line on exit, but nowhere I saw we could cut entry line...

    entry line is allowed to be crossed even in real F1 I think :p. Been this way in FSR as well.

    Hi Mikko,
    Morgan won't be able to race today. He had to leave home in a hurry for a family emergency, so he didnt change his allocation.

    The only track where we have enforced the pit entry line in the history of FSR is Interlagos I believe.
