NOTES:
1. For races longer than one hour ("Long" races), at least one set of the softest tire compound must be used for at least one complete lap during the race. Failure to do so will result in that driver starting at the back of the grid in the subsequent race. This rule does not apply if rain is present before the softest tires are used. Since the game (and the actual series) allows tires to run for one hour or longer if managed correctly, tire wear will be set to "2x" so as to encourage pit stops and strategy. Practice accordingly.

2. Due to loss of force feedback on some wheels, starts will be rolling, but the first lap speed is 50mph maximum so drivers may reset their wheels, if necessary. We will then line up in the same order we started and the race will start (drivers may accelerate and pass) when the pole sitter crosses the start/finish line.

3. All League and Race Department Rules apply, with the stewards able to issue penalties even though no protest was filed. Please record your races and make them available via Twitch or YouTube.

4. There will be no breaks in between sessions, so be sure to take your break before qualifying if needed.

It will be interesting to see numbers for this.

Will be my first 2 plus hour race i've ever done as i have only gone grand prix distance before.

Just done my first spin, track looks beautiful with a sunny day and early in the morning, makes me realise how **** the graphics on the new f1 game are.
2.21.3 not that times are going to mean anything, I spun 3-4 times in about ten laps. if that happens on saturday im ****ed due to the length of this thing.

Robert are you sure your eyes read 60 laps lol

I never left.. haha, I was running some stiff springs at Nurburg and didn't have any lateral grip. I've learned my lesson, but even then I think the McLaren and Bentley can pull me on the straights. I'll take a podium given the competition. :thumbsup:

That's what I'm doing after a few laps. About 1:23.XXX. BUt I'm sure that 1:20 was no fluke. I expect race and qualy speed will beat the real series.
