Event Specifics

1. Alerting the Administration:
Use @sc to alert administration to look at your car or the section of track you were in when you use the @sc command. The command will tell the administration what location you're at.

2. Communications:
All drivers are required to be in the NDR TeamSpeak server: teamspeak.newdimensionracing.com - Race Control messages will be broadcast to anyone in a channel in the Pit Wall in TS. If you would like a subchannel for your team or friendly drivers, please let us know and we will create one.
Make sure you have your race number and/or your LFS username as your nickname on TeamSpeak

3. Broadcast
This race will be broadcasted by Sim Broadcasts: https://twitch.tv/simbroadcasts

They will be in the NDR TeamSpeak. You are invited to be interviewed on stream during the breaks between sessions. Please follow their terms listed at https://simbroadcasts.tv/voice - we will apply those to our Commentary Box area.

4. Driver Naming:
Be sure to be in your proper name format Number, first initial, dot, last name [eg. 00 J. Provost].

The car number must be in white. Your name may be in colour.

5. Practice Starts
Drivers are permitted to take practice starts at the location notified above, any time the pit exit is open. Drivers taking practice starts should pull up to the chalk line that marks the spot, and wait for a clear path to take their practice start. Cars in the exit lane have right of way over cars preparing for a practice start.

6. Virtual Safety Car Test
There will be a test Virtual Safety Car deployment in the free practice session, starting about 5 minutes remaining in the session. All drivers are encouraged to participate in this test.

7. Pit Entry and Pit Exit
On pit entry, all parts of the car must be to the RIGHT of the white blend line.
On pit exit, all parts of the car must be to the RIGHT of the white blend line.

8. Qualifying Procedure
Cars will be released in small groups to take their hot lap. You will be called to queue at pit exit. Pit exit will open for a limited time each group. Once you cross pit exit (end of the speed limit zone), you are committed to the run. You may only retake a run if you lose connection.

Drivers must not unduly delay other cars or themselves.

9. Race Start:
Each race will have a grid presentation after the lights turn green. Once this presentation is finished, the start procedure will begin with the 5 second signal.

An insim head-up display will appear, with five darkened lights. After 5 seconds, each light will illuminate red at one second intervals. After a pause of between 3 and 7 seconds, the lights will extinguish and the race will be started.

10. Safety Car:
On Restarts, the Safety Car will pull away from the field after Turn 8. It must not be overtaken before it crosses the 1st Safety Car line.

Overtaking is not permitted on SC restarts until YOU have crossed the start-finish line.

11. Adding Time to the Race
The race is scheduled for 45 minutes, plus one lap. In the event of a Safety Car or Virtual Safety Car, time will be added to the race time, up to a maximum time of 60 minutes plus one lap.

Safety Car:
For each complete lap of SC: 115 seconds will be added to the race time.
For the lap of deployment, (approximate %age of lap left to run115s)0.5 will be used to divide the full lap, and added to the complete lap total. Example, Leader is at split 1 when SC is called, (115x0.66)x0.5=76s (rounded down)

Virtual Safety Car:
Each second of VSC will be multiplied by 0.9 and that figure added back to the race time after the restart.

No time will be added if the deployment and race restart occur with less than 5 minutes remaining in the race.

12. End of Race
After finishing the race, please slow WELL BELOW racing speeds after Turn 1 and proceed to parc ferme, located beyond the T1 runoff. The top 3 shall report to the podium via the following route:

Take a hard left into the gap in the wall between Turns 2 and 3, and follow the concrete ramp to the podium area. P1 is in the middle, P2 is to driver's right, P3 is to driver's left.

Top three and anyone else wishing to be interviewed on the broadcast should join the Commentary Box Waiting Room, and one of the commentators will move you to the Commentary Box.

13. Miscellany:
Do NOT under any circumstances Shift+P or Shift+S from on course during the race without authorization from Race Control.

You do NOT need permission to retire once you are in the pit lane.

If you suffer a lost connection or timeout from the server during the race, you are not permitted to rejoin the race.

Stop & Go penalties may ONLY be taken from the penalty box located at the location noted above.

Please post any procedural questions in this thread.

Good luck!
