Race #18, Abu Dhabi: Pre-Race Briefing

Discussion in 'Formula SimRacing' started by Mikko Puumalainen, Oct 27, 2010.

  1. Here's some info regarding some of the special circumstances we have for this race.

    Pitexit

    The pitexit line only starts when the red/white area near the end of the pitexit ends. http://z.ip.fi/~mipuumal/TTT/pitexit.jpg

    As long as you don't touch the white line after the red marker in the screenshot, you won't be penalized with a pitexit cut.

    Penalties

    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 = 1 Point 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.

    Winter time

    I'm not sure if Winter Time works the same in all countries, but in most of europe at least, the clocks will be turned back 1 hour between Saturday night and Sunday morning.

    The schedule will still be the same in regards to GMT:

    Sunday, 17:00 GMT: Server opens for Practice
    Sunday, 17:25 GMT: Qualifying
    Sunday, 17:50 GMT: Warmup
    Sunday, 18:00 GMT: Race Start

    Just be sure to know what your own timezone is compared to GMT.

    And finally...

    Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all the drivers, team managers, fellow admins etc. for a very smooth and pleasant season as WC Race Director.
