    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 1 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 1 will be 32 laps long. Drive safely during the race, especially at the start and the first lap in general.

    Warmup 2 will resume after Race 1 and will last 10 minutes.

    Race 2 will be 16 laps long, and will invert the first eight finishers in Race 1.

    Red Flags will NOT be used unless in very specific situations which are specified in the rule documents.

  2. I think its time to solve it and give BOGs from Germany now. Cos if we will investigating all Q´s since start of the season, there probably will be not enough races left to apply all penalties for Cutters :p
  3. Also this.... Still without any answer
  4. holzmann should juts get back of the grid regardless of whether he cut or not. Obviously he did cut and he would manage to cut even on a straight surrounded by walls. Gonna be fun to see how much he fails again, hopefully his ''manager'' will be entertained as much :laugh: Watch this guy anyway, sooner or later he is gonna explode and get ban. He is that type.
    • Haha Haha x 3

    If someone wants to voluntarily take a BoG to avoid an upcoming penalty, just let the RD know during Q1. This only applies to Race 1.
  7. Ok then. But Germany was already "investigated", so why we shouldnt apply that?
    • Agree Agree x 2
  8. Since I'm directing today I want to make another point. Cutting on outlap in qualifying sessions in order to gain time / more laps is disallowed and will be penalized.
