TROIS RIVIERES Hello guys, this will be the first race of the seasson in a street circuit, so please read carefully next briefing and if you have any question make a post in the thread in order to get an answer. 1.- FIRST LAPS It is a street circuit, narrow, short and with a lot of traffic. Take extreme care on the first laps as an incident at that part of the race could be critical and could mean a lot of people going on troubles as there are not normal runoffs. The penalty applied to an avoidable accidnet on first laps at Trois Rivieres will be hard. Race Direction will even act ex officio if the incident deserves it. 1.2- BRAKES Remember the Doran brakes will not work 100% of his performance on the first lap/s. TAKE IT EASY and don´t risk the whole race because of it. 1.3- SAFETY CAR Safety Car will remain active at pit lane for the first 5 laps, so in the case an incident involving more than 5 cars happens during those laps, race will go Red Flag and will be neutralized for the needed laps to grant safeness. In the case we deploy the Safety Car, it will wait for the race leader at the end of the start/finish straight. YOU CAN´T OVERTAKE UNDER RED FLAG SITUATION and the pace have to be decreased until reach the Safety Car position. 2.- RACE ALLOCATIONS Remember you have to place your team allocations in the STC Main Site. If you don´t do it you will lose the right to set a qualyfication time in the race. 3.- TEAM SPEAK Team Speak is mandatory, and a driver not on team speak without a justification couldn´t be allowed to join the event. 4.- CHAT Chat is forbiden during all the event, but you have to keep it enabled and visible in car to read Race Control Messages. ** 5.- WARM UP LAP Formation lap will be done in a pace around 90 kmts/h. It is really important you keep a constant distance with the car infront and the car behind, so no brake or acceleration test will be done. WE DON´t WANT TRAFFIC JAMS, SO TAKE CARE OF WHERE THE CAR INFRONT OF YOU IS ALL THE TIME! - It will be a single file rolling start. - Stay quiet until you read on chat "STARTING WARM UP LAP", then Safety car will turn lights on and the lap will start. A car will start moving after the car infront start the lap, and never before. - When starting the formation lap, remember you will loose a position with the safety car, so take care of being in your position and always take care of knowing what car you have to follow. - The complete lap will be done in the same pace. Some messages will be seen in chat saying "Keep your pace & formation". - IMPORTANT FOR POLE SEATER Even with the safety car on track, it will be the leader of the group responsability to have a constant pace, so if the Safety Car accelerates going back to pit, the leader of the group have to keep a 90 kmts/h speed. As seen in previous races, Safety Car can be disconected so it is important leaders knows his role in the formation lap. - Then when reaching the start/finish line Race Control will give Green Flag or Red Flag via chat, depending if the formation of the group is correct or if there where incidents in the formation lap. - No overtaking will be done before crosing the start finish line, even if the Green Light is ON. The cars behind the leader will consider race started once the last turn is completed. - With the GREEN LIGHT message from race direction you have to start accelerating and racing in race pace even if you can´t overtake before the start/finish line. 6.- ESCAPE KEY Remember you can press ESC key, but never with traffic or in the racing surface. Be sure you are completely alone when hitting ESC. 7.- SUPER POLE In Super Pole mode Qualifying, you have to complete the Out Lap, Qualy Lap and In Lap. 8.- SPEED LIMIT @ PIT LANE Respect the speed limit at pit lane in all sessions. Remember, in order to avoid problems, to call your pit crew before entering pits during the race. 9.- WEATHER Remember to check the weather forectas on website (...it is already updated...) to have a close idea of how it will be in the future event. But the most important, check the session info into the sim or in the Pit Wall to take a direct look to the tarmac and know exactly in what conditions it is. 10.- TYRES & ENGINE Remember we have 4 diferent compunds this seasson, Hard, Soft and Super Soft. Remember aswell the engine file was updated in the version 3.0 of the MOD and it is more sensible to agressive downshifting. 11.- BRAKES Remember the Doran brakes are not an F1 brakes and specially when they are cold it is dificult to stop the car in the correct place, so TAKE IT EASY ON THE FIRST LAPS as you can have a bad accident because of that. 12.- INCIDENTS & INCIDENT REPORTS Remember: Whatever happen on track you don´t have to wait for another driver, it can only bring more risk and more incidents. No chat will be allowed, and neither in this case, just wait for the end of the race and then make the incident report. At the end of the race, on next day you can make an official Incident Report in the STC Main Site. Remember you have to grant a video with the incident. Remember aswell ALL THE TEAM SPOKESMAN HAVE TO VOTE in the Incident Investigation thread at the WAR Forum. --- Thanks for reading!!
