Safety-first Zones The following diagram indicates the location of Safety-first Zones for Round 6, the Thrustmaster 6 Hours of Sebring: The yellow zone, which will be in effect during the first lap following a start or restart, shall commence along the start / finish straight, and end between Bishop Bend and Gendebien Bend. The orange zones, of which there are 5, shall be enforced for the duration of the race, and are positioned as follows: Turn One The left turn immediately prior to Gurney Bend Hairpin Turn Tower Turn Sunset Bend (starting at the end of Ulmann Straight, and ending after the bridge) Please refer to the image at the top of this post for corner and section names. For those unable to easily distinguish the yellow zone from the orange zones, the yellow zone colour has been switched to blue in the track diagram below. Please click on the thumbnail to expand the image. Pit Entry Positioning For the race at Sebring, we recommend that any cars intending to enter the pits should stay as far right (towards the inside of the track) as possible when exiting Sunset Bend and entering the start / finish straight. Any cars looking to overtake should do so around the outside / left side of the track, as the pit entry lane is approached. Physical Driver Swap Penalty Position Following a physical driver swap, the new driver is expected to drive to the end of the pit-lane and stop for 5 seconds (the time for an in-game driver swap) to account for any time that could be gained. Race Control should be informed when a swap is due to be performed so that a steward can be sent to oversee the pit-stop and ensure that the 5 second "penalty" is served. Please refer to the attached images ('Physical Driver Swap Penalty Box #.JPG') which show where the driver is expected to stop the car after a physical driver swap has been performed. REPORTING AN INCIDENT DURING THE RACE To help simplify the process of reporting collisions, crashes, cutting, and questionable driving during an event, a form has been created that will allow a team to submit all of the necessary information to Race Control so that the incident may be reviewed and actioned by the live stewards. The form can be found here: RDLMS S7 - Incident Report Form (OPEN FOR RESPONSES) You must submit the form for each incident that you would like to raise during the course of the race. When dealing with an incident we shall contact you via TeamSpeak if we require any more information. We shall also inform you via TeamSpeak if and when any action has been taken in relation to your report. TURN ONE ENTRY / PIT EXIT LANE DOUBLE WHITE LINE Crossing the second of the two white lines at the entry of Turn One (on the right-hand side) will not be permitted because the area to the right is part of the pit lane exit and there may be slow(er) cars moving along it at any time during the event. A car that moves from the track into the pit exit lane may not initially be visible to a car leaving the pit lane, and there would be very little room for the exiting car to manoeuvre and take avoiding action if necessary; this is not fair on the driver of the (potentially slower moving) car exiting the pit lane, and also it is dangerous, hence the decision to prohibit cars already on the track from crossing into the pit exit lane. Meanwhile, cars exiting the pit lane shall also be forbidden from crossing the double white line; cars looking to rejoin the track, upon leaving the pits, may only do so once the double white line has ended (at the outermost part of Turn One) and when the track is clear. If a car is seen to be crossing the double white line (without being given permission to do so) then it will initially receive a warning from Race Control, and a drive-through penalty will be issued after the third infraction. If contact is made with another car when the double white line is crossed then a 10 second stop / go penalty will be immediately issued to the offending driver. This thread may be subject to changes.
