    Before proceeding to the event, pay attention to the following:
    • Note that there is no restriction on tire compounds for the rest of the season
    • Read the updated 2013 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
    • A pre-qualifying session is organized and is mandatory for all drivers (see the schedule and listings below)
    • Due to the number of allocated drivers being :inlove:6, Grid 2 race is not organized this time
    Following drivers (8) have automatically gained the right to race in Grid 1. The listed drivers are NOT ALLOWED to take part in Pre-Qualifying:

    Start from back of the grid (4):
    The Pre-Qualifying session will be 10 minutes in length, split in two sessions. The sessions will be run in Private mode without Parc Ferme.

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.
