Alright fellas, our 1st Event of our inaugural season of the Porsche GT3 Supercup series on ACC is finally here. A few points that we should note before tonight's Event:
- ACC is not GT7. Driving in ACC requires much more precision and an elevated need for clean racing than we have been afforded. Contact should be avoided at all costs. The smallest of bumps/contact can unsettle an opponents car. Be patient, and make sure to get heat in those tires before digging into the battles. Hold your lines and respect other driver's lines and space when battling.
-All in game penalties must be adhered to and served if necessary. (Drive Thru [DT], stop & go [S&G], track limit, etc. Warnings for track limits, keep on racing...just be mindful to not do it too many times as it will result in an ingame penalty.
Along with the ingame immediate penalties, we will still be reviewing incidents when reported. I encourage drivers to pm me with any incidents that are in question.
-No pitstops required (except penalties/repairs), and no cautions are available for this series.
-If you are unfamiliar with the rolling race start procedure, see below:
Once the controls unlock, place the car in 1st gear and begin moving forward. Be sure to keep the car within the green bars range, and take note of which side the indicator is directing you to. (You will get a penalty if out of position). On approach to the start/finish line, keep the slider in the green up to the startung lights/green lights. (do not exceed 43mph (69kph-ish) on lead up.
-With the 2 month lead up to this series, plenty of links and resourses have been made available for getting the game setup sorted, controls sorted, and some instruction and understanding for tuning in ACC. Please review this link if necessary:
ACC/PS5 New Driver Setup Help
-We will be running a Reverse grid procedure for Race 2.
Since we are capped at 16 for the party chat, it will be imperative that all drivers review this procedure and understand the process. We will have a limited amount of time between races, and we will all need to be on point for this to go smoothly. If unsure of anything, please ask before the room opens. Please review this link carefully, and ask me prior to the room opening for clarifications.
Manual Reverse Grid Procedure - MUST KNOW
