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 1 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 1 will be 38 laps long. Drive safely during the race, especially at the start and the first lap in general.

    Warmup 2 will resume after Race 1 and will last 10 minutes.

    Race 2 will be 19 laps long, and will invert the first eight finishers in Race 1.

    Red Flags will NOT be used unless in very specific situations which are specified in the rule documents.
