    Track Description
    Drivers will be heading out at Hockenheim ring, one of the latest tracks for Automobilista. Drivers will be pushing for their best position possible at a circuit that has hosted Formula 1, DTM and the World Rallycross Championship. The 4.574km (2.842mi) circuit will test the skills of the drivers as they have long straights and tight bends to hold their positions on track and in the championship.
    The 17 turned circuit has a number of overtaking locations of which we will see the Formula 3's push hard and look for every position possible during the 90 minutes of running. NordKurve (turn 1) will cause some controversy on the opening laps, but turns 2, 3 and 4 will be vital for an overtake through Hairpin (turn 6) which is the biggest braking point on the circuit. Mercedes (turn 8), and Mobil 1 (turn 11) will also prove important, but will be harder to make a move stick. Sachs (turn 12) will be one of the final overtaking locations. The two long straights, specifically Parabolika (turn 5) will be the locations of most slipstream being exploited by the drivers.

    60 laps. 90 minutes is just an approximate time frame. Could be shorter could be longer.

    Can I ask if that now we are on GMT in the uk, will the existing times be valid (19:30 race start)
    Or will the times be adjusted so that the race starts later 20:30 GMT?
    The reason I ask is that club races have now been moved back 1 hour.
    Cheers

    Fck... So in other words, every race happens an hour earlier than we committed to? I mean physically, as daytime savings affects nearly everyone around the globe.

    No. They remain where they were. It's always been GMT and not stated otherwise.

    Kind of confusing, when ALL other events are adjusted, and there seems to be an RD management decision behind that (with a history of doing so in the past as well).

    I have to double check my calendar now, as there's a chance I won't be able to make all rounds this way.

    For this round of the championship, defending champion @Slalom823 is out, leaving Mighty Forth with three drivers with @CMGARAGE stepping up to the plate in his one man team. Good luck out there Matt!
