    Biefring coming later. But I want to announce that we will run the event with the same schedule as before the time change, that means PQ will start at 14:00GMT instead of 13:00GMT, to avoid running it at the same time as F1 Qualy.

    So tomorrow's schedule:

    Yeah I have to say David this is all well and good but not smart so close to the race. Like Milan I cannot race at the new time. It might be the same time as normal for us Brits but we do organise other things as well as simracing for a weekend and I have an important appointment to keep. More notice would have been nice. So see you all next season.

    Welcome to the last race of the FSR 2012 World Trophy season at Brazil! You will find the password for this event by logging on GPCOS and looking at the password field which is next to the server's IP address.

    Before proceeding to the event, pay attention to the following:
    • Remember to join the game with the FSR Manager software running, as described in the pre-raceand post-race procedures
    • A pre-qualifying session is organized (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 (7) have automatically gained the right to race in Grid 1. The listed drivers are NOT ALLOWED to take part in Pre-Qualifying:
    Following drivers have the right to participate in Pre-Qualifying:

    Pre-qualifying Group (23):
    Start from back of the grid:
    License Status:

    Schedule:
    The Pre-Qualifying session will be 10 minutes in length. The session will be run in Private mode without Parc Ferme. The sessions will also be closed, this means that it will impossible for people to join while the session is running. The top 19 from Pre-Qualifying will make it in to Grid 1.

    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.

    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 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 will be 54 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.

    Really cross about this. Do you think our lives revolve around FSR? How can you move the race one hour with about 12 hours notice. Ridiculous.

    Hello, a desperate Chris here.
    Last month a very dear brazilian friend of me and also a very happy fsr stream watcher on simracetv died.
    The idea was to do a special livery in interlagos, Tamas vargasi designed the car but the livery is not there. from the bottom of my heart is there any possibility i can still sort it out and james doesnt have to worry about having no driver!
    I know this is a bit off topic but i spent last week making sure this livery is up because he was a good friend and a very good fsr spectator.

    This has been sorted out now, I managed to convince Chris I did send the liveries in, because I did and I think its quite disrespectful that it wasn't put into the mod.

    Just lucky I didn't do much practice so haven't spent loads of time for nothing. But I'm guessing others will have. Yeah its a bit of a joke to be honest. Maybe they think we just take whole days off from doing anything when FSR is running.

    No Q1 laps done by me due to penalty from last race.

    well. sorry for all the incidents.

    whoever i hit in 3rd place going into ferra dura im sorry. i thought there might be a gap but underestimated how close we all were in pace. totally my fault.

    2nd guy i hit in pits. Think it was Kore someone. Im sorry, you braked earlier than i expected for the speed limit, and i had no where to go but into you.

    i should have given some margin for that.

    sorry for everything, a total disaster for me. see you next year.

    Hi Mo. My car took no damage (during the race I didnt even think that we touched). Im sorry that I drove like a ****head in the pits (too cautious and slow).
