Deviations from typical [WR] Rules: Pitlane will remain open whenever possible under Safety Car. There will not be a free pass rule (Disregard Title III, Section X, Article 1) for this event, but Wave Arounds will still be granted (Title III, Section X, Article 2).

Special Note: Commitment "cones" on pit entry and exit referred to in the rulebook will not actually be cones in this event. Instead the commitment "cones" will be indicated by two yellow chalk lines meeting together at arrow heads. Competitors must treat these as they would the commitment cones as outlined in the rulebook and not drive over them or around them on pit entry or exit. Penalty for this infraction during competition will be the equivalent of a drive through penalty.

Any skin request?
Quote from cuprum :Any skin request?

None, but the [WR] Rulebook does have one section regarding skins that applys to all Worldwide Racing Events. (Title XII, Section I)

Quote :12.1
In all Worldwide Racing Series Sessions, skins are not permitted to have content that would be judged unsuitable for those under the age of thirteen (“13”) years old.

I added the following rules clarification to the opening post. It reads as follows:

Quote :Special Note: Commitment "cones" on pit entry and exit referred to in the rulebook will not actually be cones in this event. Instead the commitment "cones" will be indicated by two yellow chalk lines meeting together at arrow heads. Competitors must treat these as they would the commitment cones as outlined in the rulebook and not drive over them or around them on pit entry or exit. Penalty for this infraction during competition will be the equivalent of a drive through penalty.

Any question(s) regarding the rules (or rulebook) for this event please post them here and I will attempt to answer them as quickly as possible.

Edit: I also added a track map.
Is it possible to miss qualifying and still participate in the race?
Quote from Casner :Is it possible to miss qualifying and still participate in the race?

This depends on the number of entries, but currently the answer appears to be yes. If we have over 30 entries this may change.
welp, might have to qualify with mouse
Registered competitors have been PM'ed for qualifying which will take place Sunday. If you did not receive a PM from me regarding this and you were registered prior to this message please contact me via PM.

Quote from Oliver Feistkorn :Can't do the qualification either, won't be home in time.

I think it's safe to say that drivers will be able to compete even if they miss qualification.
I have thinned down the entry list to only those who are approved for competition. The LFS World lap time submission I have made a little easier to complete by allowing drivers to either upload a lap to LFS World OR run a lap time under 1:02.505 on [WR] LFS Grand Prix while Airio is running. This means that only two competitors who registered have been declined participation. (If you haven't been PM'ed, you're not one of them).

Participants should be in attendance in about an hour and 45 minutes. See you soon
