    Raceday Schedule:

    Sunday, 12:55 GMT Server Opens for PQ1
    Sunday, 13:00 GMT Pre-Qualyfing Group 1
    Sunday, 13:20 GMT: Practice

    The Free Practice session will be 15 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 34 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.

    Think you should go through the numbers on that post again Carlos ;)

    Missing, 5,6,17,18,19,20,23 and 24.

    I was just confused as to why there were 33 people when only 29 confirmed as of 23:59PM last night. :)

    Also, I know that you have taken the top 10 out of there I think...

    edit: Christof Schgör is in the PQ2..
     
  5. Thanks gonna check again.

    Now I left those numbers becuase its allocation pos.

    regarding to Clayton, he can race PQ but he will have back of the grid in case he passes to Race.

    GL!
     
  6. Yes shouldnt be a prob :)
     
  7. So i can PQ, but can i qualify in the actual race though or do i have to start at the back of the grid?
     
  8. Makes sense, since it's in private mode anyway. Plus, we will now know immediately whether we made it or not, instead of having to wait for PQ2 to finish.
     
  9. You can do PQ, in case you pass to Race you will have back of the grid because late allocation (Allocate now).
     
  10. with rf1 there were problems with not enough pit boxes etc
     
    • Agree Agree x 1
  11. True that. But would that not still be solved with private mode and all other cars being invisible to oneself?

    It would definitely be a problem with all the cars being visible, you are correct.
     
  12. cool thanks i just allocated now. so to understand i have to start at the back?
     
  13. yes
     
  14. Shouldnt, because if we are 26 drivers in race I see no prob on 20 drivers in preQ.

    Indeed, last GP in preQ Group 1 was 20 drivers.

    Is this 12.35gmt = 13.35 bst now? ..so pre quali one is in approx two hours for me in uk? It should be theoretically but I'm a little cautious as a few rd events have been mixed up by organisers in the past with the clock changes. Can I just confirm pq start in approx two hours uk time ?
