R06 - [FO8@AS5] - 25/04/2016
Round 6 :: April 25th, 2016

Track: Aston Grand Prix [AS5]
Cars: FO8

Qualifying Mode: 15 minutes with race fuel
Race Mode: 31 laps including a mandatory pit stop


Qualifying

During qualifying all drivers will be able to complete as many laps as they wish. The difference to a normal timed qualifying session is that all drivers are only allowed to leave the pit lane once and must do so with the setup and fuel load they intend to start the race with. Every driver who jumps to the pits or spectates the session will automatically be disqualified from the session and has to start the race from the back of the grid. As always the following rules are also in force: The pit exit blendline is not to be crossed by any parts of the car and it's every driver's own responibility to leave large enough gaps to the cars in front before going on a hot lap.

Should a driver receive a penalty during qualifying, like a DT for pit lane speeding, then he must serve this penalty at the earliest opportunity. Not doing so will result in the affected driver being moved to the back of the grid!

When the session time has expired, all drivers are asked to drive back to the pit lane and park their car there. No driver will be allowed to keep circulating to further practice laps.


Race

As always, the race will start with a laglap. Due to the race fuel qualifying mode, drivers who jump to the pits during the laglap will receive a stop-go penalty after the race start.

Since the FO8 is a car which heavily relies on downforce to achieve its performance, all drivers are asked to be extremely careful in the first few laps of the race as well as in battles with other competitors! The distance to the first turn, as well as to the first hairpin just before the end of the first sector, is quite long. It is possible for a single rash maneuver from any driver to ruin the race of multiple drivers.

To make the race a bit more interesting there will also be an element of strategy in form of a mandatory pit stop. Drivers will be free to decide on whether they do any work on their cars or not. Since there is no specific pit window, the pit stop can be made in any lap except for the final lap. Of course, the pit exit blend line must not be crossed when doing so.


Additional Information

Everyone is asked to respect the rules on chatting. During all sessions, chat is always automatically closed unless the race administrator opens it.

Luckily for grid 2, if Frank finishes well in this round he'll be promoted into grid 1 for the next race. Then we'll have to deal with him. Smile

ps. Love you really, Frank.
Just keep in mind that skill, experience and speed levels vary significantly in Grid 2 and you have to take compromises in your choice of racing lines when lapping and to stay on an expectable line when being lapped.
Didn't you split the grid based on qualy result? Or maybe that was another league...
