    Welcome to the second race of the FSR 2013 World Trophy season at Bahrain! 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:
    • Note that there is no restriction on tire compounds for Round 1
    • 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)
    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:
    Following drivers have gained the right to participate in Pre-Qualifying:

    Pre-qualifying Group 1 (20):
    Pre-qualifying Group 2 (19):
    Schedule:

    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. The sessions will also be closed, this means that it will impossible for people to join while the session is running. The top 18 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 43 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.

    Fabio Fontana withdrew from Arnchu Racing. Additionally I asked him to remove his allocation. Regardless, he is not participating in the WT. I submitted new livery earlier this week by Thursday. Will there be a an update?

    Allocation removed then. And there is not going to be an update before Bahrain race, so you will have to wait for the next week.

    "Due to remaining issues with checking tire compounds reliably for all different rFactor configurations, the ISR Club Board has decided to maintain free use of tire compounds for both the WS and the WT race of Round 2, Bahrain."

    I guess he has two profiles with the same name. Tell him to check userdata folder and see if everything is correct.

    I cannot help right now with WT running. If he can fix it he can join into PQ2 or G2 starting from back of the grid if he does not make PQ.
