    New Poll for the Pole! Please Vote!
    Since this race is so long, and laps are almost 4:00 long I would like to have a dedicated Qualifying session. The results would be recorded and implemented on the Parade Lap. Ideally I would to get everyone together on the same day, you can pick multiple days. If we can get the majority of people on the same day that's when we'll do it. There will still be a 20 min session before the race for anyone that can't agree/ or make a Qualifying session but the weather will be that of the Race itself.

    You can select Multiple days if you are available, if we can get one day thats good for everyone that would be best.
     
  11. is it meant to be may instead of march?
    I think I could do that on friday or monday maybe, if not then I'll qualify on raceday

    Oops you're right Toast. Qualifying for this was 2 months ago.. LoL. My bad!

    Fixed, I can do Friday if we get enough people.. Whatever day we can get the most people, or have two sessions as long as someone saves the results. Then we can post the Starting Order before the race.

    Just start me in the back or the day of the race I will run 1 qualifying lap once I feel I am set up. Unfortunately I will not be able to make a dedicated qualifying day due to work schedule.

    There will be a 20 min session before the race. But I would like to get most times in before hand, and whoever wants can use the 20 min Qualy as a warmup since 5 mins isn't long enough to warm up.

    I'm fine with either taking my fastest lap during the 20 min warmup or starting last.

    No.. its No Practice, 20 min Qualifying, and 5 min warm-up.

    Either way I will only be able to qualify on race day.

    whats the caution situation going to be for le mans? 8.5 mile track so catching up to the leader might take a lot of time.

    IMO, wave arounds won't work here, track is too large.
    Maybe run the 3 safety car zones like IRL, at each of the different sectors.
     
  19. can we take a nap at the halfway mark

    started a safety car discussion here so we don't clog up this thread.
