    Welcome to the eleventh race of the FSR 2013 World Series season at Suzuka! You will find the password for this event by logging on GPCOS and looking at the password field which is next to the server's IP address.

    Before proceeding to the event, pay attention to the following:
    • The penalty point status after Italy can be viewed in this thread
    • Note that there is no restriction on tire compounds
    • Remember to join the game with the FSR Manager software running, as described in the pre-race and post-race procedures
    • Due to the allocation count being less than than 27, neither a PQ session nor a Grid 2 race is organized as per articles 5.6 and 5.7 in the FSR WS Rules Supplement.
    Following drivers (23) have automatically gained the right to race in Grid 1.
    Start from back of grid (2)
    The Free Practice session will be 10 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 53 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.
