All drivers are expected to show up. Absentees who do not report here at least 24 hours before the event will automatically receive a 2 point penalty regardless of the reason.

Practice: Open all day of the event
Qualifying: 19:05 GMT (15 minutes, unlimited laps)
Warm Up: 19:20 GMT (3 minutes)
Race: 19:25 GMT (50 minutes).

All races will begin with a standing start, without a formation lap. Refueling and tyre changes are permitted, but not required. Although written for the Formula Vees, the pit stop guide here contains useful information if you're unfamiliar with pitting. Fuel and tire wear will be normal 1x. Assists will not be available except for auto-clutch.

Red Zone - On Lap 1, the start straight and turn 1 are considered a red zone (see map below). This simply means that the replay of the starts will be looked at automatically - any incidents caused by overly aggressive behaviour or rules being broken will be penalised more so than incidents elsewhere. It is a league, so be competitive, but don't destroy other people's races.

I see alot of "if this happens.... _____ ... will I get a penalty" questions regarding the red zone on their way... :whistling:

The right answer to that would be "try it and see what happens".
I think the rules are pretty clear and simple, don't try any "brave" moves in the first 2 corners (it's a 50 min race anyway, that kinda stupid even without the red zone there).
Anyone starting to wonder if I can do that .. or this ..is clearly forgetting that it's not a sprint race and focusing too much on the start instead of the whole race.

So what are the rules regarding parc fermé?

Can we change fuel or any other aspects of the setup (brake bias/rear wing etc) between quali and race?

I don't set it to parc ferme but Warren is correct and by default you won't be able to change it between sessions

Well we can change all four tires if we wan't to, right?
Or is it only fuel?

You can change tyres and add fuel if you want
So between quali and race, only tyres and fuel can be changed? Everything else is locked? What about the brake bias?

I am imagine brake bias is free to change, since you can do it whilst driving also.

I don't know about between sessions, I only meant in the race session. I guess the Friday club event will be useful for more than one reason :thumbsup:

Any information from today's club race would be helpful I'm sure. Also, I assume if the car gets damaged in qualifying it will still be fixed at the race start, does this sound correct?

Speaking of damage, when I drive my car to the pits and stop within my designated pit area (not ESC to the pits) , it is never repaired during pit stopage time. Although there is refuelling and tyre change but the damaged parts of the car are still in yellow after I drive out. Is this a glitch or is there something else I need to do when I make pit menu selections on the fly? I do press the "pit request" after affecting the changes in pit menu.

From my understanding the car is never fully repaired 100%, more so that it is drive-able.
Could be wrong with that.

I've never carried damage over from quali to race, but I've never specifically checked.

As for repairs, check your PLR and turn smart pit crew off; it will mean it won't auto repair damage, but you have the option in the LCD so you have more control.

As for the rest of the questions, and specifically pit stop questions, you'll have to do your own research and testing - this is a league after all ;)
