LFSBC drivers shall color their car numbers yellow, NDRC drivers shall color their car numbers blue. You are to select no color (furthest right color button) for the rest of your name.

The Race will start via Standing Start.

The Safety Car Will wait to go to pitlane until all cars have completed the first turn without incident. After all cars are past Turn 2, and no deployment is needed, the SC will need to quickly head to pitlane, and enter pitlane and wait on standby at the end of pitlane. The SC should be clear of the course before the field completes the middle sector.

The SC will travel at approximately pitlane speed throughout the course, only slowing for natural slow points. The SC will once again be an FXR for this round. Drivers should remember SC distance regulations: The leader must remain around 8 to 10 car lengths off the SC, and drivers must leave about 3 to 5 car lengths between their car and the car ahead. Incidents due to following too close may be deemed to be caused by neglect, and a harsher penalty issued.

During SC deployments, the SC Inlap indication will come when the SC is between turns 5 and 7. At this point, it will begin to accelerate away, and the leader is expected to maintain SC pace, and is not to begin accelerating until it exits the final turn.

The track image indicating approximate Intermediate locations andturn numbers, as we reference them will be posted soon. Please use those in any protests you may make.

Please do not make protests in this tread, there will be a thread created for that after the race has been completed.

The layout for the race is posted. It includes a few things to act as cut deterrents, it also amends the blend lines...please take note of this.

is ABS allowed for this race?
Quote from Fastwalker :is ABS allowed for this race?

Yes, I'll allow it. I don't see that it would be too big of a deal here. The cars are fairly evenly matched, between the FXO and RB4 around here, XRT a bit slower. That's going off the WR and some brief testing.

Thank god we can use abs as my pedals are broken so I only have about half turbo around the whole track so without abs I would be dog slow LOL
ABS?!

I never even even knew about that, how do I use it/activate it?
You have to use Z10, then it's in the setup options.
Should we upload hotlaps of all combos, or only one of them? I'm asking, becouse with Z10 uploading is blocked.

u can upload them here on the forum i guess (attachments)

Strictly it should be uploaded onto LFSW. And you only have to upload a hotlap for one of the combos

THX!

WR hotlap in the FXO @ AS Cadet is approx 56.?? seconds. 103% of that (approx 57-58 seconds) will be a good race pace if you can be consistent with those times. Not sure about the other cars.
thx m8 ^_^'
