    Welcome to the ninth round of FSR 2010 World Trophy. Before proceeding to the event, notice the following:

    Due to the allocation count being less than 36, no Grid 2 event is scheduled, as per article 5.8 in the World Series supplement document.

    Also note that cutting the pit lane entry is allowed as per the standard rules.

    Following drivers have automatically gained the right to race in Grid 1. The listed drivers are NOT ALLOWED to take part in Pre-Qualifying:

    Secured Grid 1 place (10):

    The following drivers have the right to participate in Pre-Qualifying:

    Pre-Qualifying 1/1 (21):

    Start from back of the grid (5):

    Start from pit lane (3):
    Race Ban (1):

    Schedule:

    The Pre-Qualifying session will be 10 minutes in length. The session will be run in Private mode without Parc Ferme. The session 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.

    The Qualifying session will be 15 minutes in length. It will be run in non-Private mode (all cars will be visible on track at the same time) with 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. Like Pre-Qualifying, this session will also 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. While in the garage, make sure you add the appropriate amount of fuel in to your car for the race. Remember, refueling is banned. 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. In case of light-moderate first lap incidents, a Safety Car may be deployed. The Safety Car period will last 3 laps and there will be no passing during these laps. Keep a safe distance to the car in front, but do not hold up the rest of the pack. The Safety Car will not be used for any incidents which happen after the first lap.

    As long as the drivers are allocated they can drive as long as it is within the deadline. If you allocated after the deadline you are just allowed to race in grid 2. But there will be no grid 2 race today.

    I gave two driver the chance two weeks ago to do a PQ even they were late allocated or had PC Problems. The result was a senseless discussion about the decision.
    If you cant get it done within 2 weeks to allocate it isnt my problem anymore.

    37. Karl Tanel Lukken Participation confirmed 2010-06-20 08:28:24
    38. Maurice Duecker Participation confirmed 2010-06-20 08:39:16
    39. Craig Johnston Participation confirmed 2010-06-20 09:09:12

    Too late is too late.

    Just a thought? As I am doing WS now. Shouldn't my Top10 slot be freed? So 26 people can race and not 25?
