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 40 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.

  2. Forgot to say, today 19 drivers are passing to Race. Good Luck!
  3. I apologise for not turning up today. My wheel broke about 2 days ago. Rotary encoder is the problem. Quite a common issue with the G25/27.
    Big shame as I think I could've done very well judging from the ACE race. Anyway, it's the way it is. Hopefully I'll come back strong but once again, I would've loved to race around this circuit.
    I'd like to take this opportunity and say good luck to all participants, have fun out there!

  4. Guys,
    i couldn't do my ACE race yesterday for private reason. So i allocated for Pro to replace a driver of ours who is unable to race too. Is there no chance of driving in Pro today for an exception?
  5. Wouldn't be fair towards the other Pro usual drivers who are racing today, because it would mean one of them would be missing the race because of this.

    Secondly, you didn't ask me for permission, the rules are very clear on that.

    Thirdly, I wouldn't allowed you if it only was for one single event.
  6. As Fred is not racing, we will pass directly to Practice session. No PQ this time.
