    Welcome to the 16th and final race of the FSR 2011 World Series season at Brazil! :)

    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:
    • Note that due to daylight saving time (who invented this?), the event will efficiently run 1 hour earlier for most drivers. The GMT time remains the same, i.e. qualifying starts at 16:30 GMT.
    • Since this is the last race of the season, qualifying cuts and pit exit cuts will be converted like this:

      Qualifying cut = +30s to race time
      Pitexit cut = 2 Points Deduction

      If you have a pit exit cut penalty but don't score any points in this race, then you don't have anything to worry about. The point deductions will only be valid for points scored in this race.
    • You can cut the pit entry free as you like.
    • Due to the number of allocated drivers being less than 27, a pre-qualifying session is not organized.
    The following drivers have gained the right to participate in the Race:

    Allocations: 15
    Late allocations: 1 (start from back of the grid)
    Start from back of the grid: 4
    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.

    The Qualifying 1 session will be 10 minutes in length and will be run in the "Practice 2" session. Drivers can use what ever setup they want, as long as they only drive with qualifying fuel loads.

    The Qualifying 2 session will be 5 minutes in length. Only the top 10 drivers from Qualifying 1 will be allowed to go out on track. Drivers will be allowed to do one flying lap (one outlap, hotlap and inlap). Parc Ferme will be enforced. You will only be allowed to change your fuel load, 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. The session will be closed, meaning if you happen to join late, or for some reason drop out of the server during the session, you will not be able to rejoin the server until the server has moved to Warmup.

    The Warmup session will be 10 minutes in length. While in the garage, make sure you add the appropriate amount of fuel in to your car for the race. Remember, refueling is banned. 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 71 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. The Safety car will not be available for use.
