AC, how to avoid a jump start?

I am stuggling with my starts and looking to find out what I am doing wrong.

If I put the car in first gear, even with the clutch full depressed, when I touch the accelerator I move forward and get a jump start penalty.

The only way to avoid this is to stay in neutral until the lights go out and I lose places on the start.

I'm using a G27 with the H shifter disabled.

Any advice?

At the moment it's the Audi TT Cup.
Audi tt cup has no clutch in real life as far as I know.
We used that car in the racedepartment club races and before every race, the race host told everyone to not shift into first gear.

It's a full semi-automatic system. You Rev up in neutral, hit the shifter and and off you go. That car is build to drive like that.

Thats how most do it when racing with auto clutch.
When racing manual with clutch check your clutch calibration, a dead zone at the end of travel is a good idea.
I blew a race once because of a tremor in the clutch leg, car crept a little, boom drive through.

Yep that's true. Good point!

For the Audi TT Cup though, there's no manual clutch even if you don't use autoclutch.
It's the only car in ac that I know of with this speciality...

Probably they just want to act the car like the real thing which has DSG ( Dual clutch gearbox)
like in the road cars.

Technically thats different from the race car sequential ( dogbox).
