    Welcome to the ninth race of the FSR 2012 World Series season at Belgium! 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 current penalty point status can be viewed in this thread
      Remember to join the game with the FSR Manager software running, as described in the pre-race and post-race procedures
    • Due to the number of allocated drivers being <27, no Pre-Qualifying and Grid 2 session is organized this time
    Following drivers (18) have automatically gained the right to race in Grid 1:
    Late allocations (2):
    Start from back of the 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 44 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 problem should be fixed in the new simsync update, so yes the rest of the weekend will go ahead as scheduled.
