Qualifying:
  • How it will work:

    All drivers will wait in their vehicle in the pits.
    The first driver will exit the pits to start their out lap.
    Once the first driver crosses the first or second sector line (depending on circuit) to start their out lap the next driver will exit the pits to start their out lap
    After the second driver crosses the first or second sector line (depending on circuit) to start their out lap the next driver will exit the pits to start their out lap
    this will continue until all drivers have exited the pits to start qualifying

    Cool down lap:
    After completing your hot lap/qualifying lap please continue to drive until you are a safe distance from the start/finish line
    Then please exit the track and return to the lobby or continue to the pits and wait until qualifying is over.
    Please remain greened up while in the lobby or your qualifying time will be nullified.

Competition Caution:
  • A competition caution will be called at 18 laps to go
  • 5 laps prior to the caution pit lane will close (drivers may only enter if they have run out of fuel)
  • Once the leader crosses the start/finish line to start the caution they will slow to caution pace
  • Remaining drivers should continue to race to the start/finish line and then line up in order of position behind the leader
  • The pits will then open and the leader will guide ALL drivers onto pit lane
  • Drivers may choose to roll through pit lane or complete a pit stop but ALL drivers must enter the pits. This is to maintain position integrity
  • Do not pass other drivers when entering the pits
  • Drivers are allowed to gain position during pit stops (this is the only time during a caution you should gain or lose positions)
  • After exiting the pits any lapped car may regain 1 lap and 1 lap only
  • Once the lapped cars have rejoined the pack drivers will line up 2 wide for the race restart
  • The leader will have the choice of inside or outside lane for restart. All other drivers will line up accordingly
  • Racing resumes when the leader crosses the start/finish line


***Please join the party chat even if you do not have a mic. This will make it easier to coordinate qualifying and cautions***

It was lots of fun when we did it during the open wheel series, id love a longer run at it with the sf19


Even the Merc was a blast there.

I think I will keep the open wheel series settings along with the 1 lap qualifying. I really liked the daytime setting for the open wheel race. Going through the tunnel was really cool.

Yes. Though switching the time to twilight is more appropriate since the race starts at 9:30 PM
