Round 8 :: May 23rd, 2016

Track: Rockingham ISSC [RO1]
Cars: Formula BMW FB02 [FBM]

Qualifying Mode: 10 minutes timed
Race Mode: 57 laps incl. a mandatory pit stop


During qualifying, all drivers will be allowed to to complete as many laps as they wish, and may also jump to the pits should they want to. When leaving pit lane, you're not allowed to cross the line that seperates the oval from the pit exit apron. Please make sure that you don't interfere with other drivers' qualifying laps when you're on an out lap. However, this does not mean that a slower driver must give way to a faster driver when they're on a timed lap themselves. It's every driver's responsibility to leave a reasonable gap to any cars in front of him before starting a hot lap himself.

Should a driver receive a penalty during qualifying (e.g.: a DT for pit lane speeding), then he has to serve the penalty at the earliest opportunity! Not serving the penalty will lead to the driver in question being moved to the back of the grid!

After the time has elapsed and all drivers have completed or aborted their final attempt, every driver is asked to park their car in their garages and to not go back out on track!


Just like in the first ever CL event in the year 1831, there will be a laglap before the actual start of the race. Just like at Kyoto, the corner leading into the infield is much narrower than the oval itself, so please be careful, especially on the first lap, and don't stick your nose into gaps that might disappear as quickly as they appeared in the first place.

To make the race a bit more interesting there will also be an element of strategy in form of a mandatory pit stop. To give drivers a better idea of where the speed limited area of the pit lane is, both ends of the pit lane are marked with an additional yellow line. 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.
