Discussion in 'Formula SimRacing' started by Carlos Martín, Sep 14, 2014.

  1. Welcome to the 9th race of the 2014 Formula SimRacing Pro Series season at Monza.

    The password to join the server will be visible when you log in to GPCOS in the Control Center next to the server's IP address.

    Before proceeding to the event, pay attention to the following:
    • Read the updated 2014 rules package from this thread
    • Remember to join the game with the FSR Manager software running, and follow the post race procedures here
    The following drivers have automatically gained the right to race:
    Pre-Qualifying Group 1 (1-20)
    Drivers Not Allowed to Race
    Back of The Grid Penalties (7):
    Raceday Schedule:

    Sunday, 12:55 GMT Server Opens for PQ1
    Sunday, 13:00 GMT Pre-Qualyfing Group 1
    Sunday, 13:20 GMT: Practice
    Sunday, 13:35 GMT: Qualifying 1
    Sunday, 13:45 GMT: Qualifying 2
    Sunday, 13:50 GMT: Warmup
    Sunday, 14:00 GMT: Race

    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 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 will be 32 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.

    Rules about late allocations

    6.1 in the PRO Supplement
    Drivers who haven’t submitted their allocation within the specified time frame will only be allowed to take part in the event if
    1) there are free spots left on the grid (less than 26 drivers allocated), or 2) a pre-qualifying session is arranged. If the grid is full and a pre-qualifying is not arranged, a late allocated driver may not take part in the event under any circumstances. If several drivers allocate late, the one(s) with the earlier allocation timestamp have preference with regards to 1) and 2).

    3 drivers not allowed to race even though there is room in pre-qualifying. Of any rule, this rule is CRYSTAL CLEAR.

    Great job Carlos.
  4. Server Opens for PQ Session. Good luck!

  6. Thanks a lot.

    Considering that the words comes from you I take it as something positive.

    Respect is something you never have to lose, comes over anything else. Those drivers didn't have any excuse for not allocating in time. As I told you privately (Well as I can see you want to bring it public, so lets go with it), how that makes sense? I mean a late allocation if there are 26 drivers, isn't allowed to race but if there are 27 he can PreQ and f*** up another driver who did his duties for racing.

    I allowed once this season with late allocation (Huge mistake) and I denied 4 times (This one is gonna be the 7th one). I understood that allowing him to race was a huge mistake, because someone who did the duties, wasn't racing because others careless.

    As I said respect is something never must be lost.

    And since when have I lied to a race director?
  11. sorry didn't have an excuse not to allocate? I'm sorry you don't see a divorce hearing as a reason not to allocate. Im done.
  12. I explained you could have allocated as Uncertain Participation.

    Any excuse? I received this email this morning. I was sure that my rfactor was reactivated next week. I thought I'd be lucky, but luck does not do anything when you're dealing with people closed

    I thought also sign up knowing i can not take it wrong ......
  17. As I said in last GP, I need a screenshoot of the payment. Send it to me pand you will be allowed to race.
