a) Training

If the organizer can do, a training server for free training is provided all day and all the time between the races. Free trainings are generally not streamed. Special training and test days will be announced in the racing calendar. Special trainings can be streamed by the organizer.

b) Qualification

The qualification will take place on 20.01.2023 20:00h (CET). All teams have 60 minutes to drive their fastest lap. There is no lap limit. The first 10 drivers compete for the Top10 qualification.

In the top 10 qualification, each driver has a warm-up lap and a fast lap in which he is alone on the track. The drivers are called on individually.

c) Start und Pre-Start

The race begins with the formation lap. It cannot be overtaken! Overtaking during the introductory / formation lap is only permitted if a vehicle was late when leaving the grid and the vehicles behind it could not avoid driving past.

The leader sets the speed, but should adhere to a directional speed of approx. 130 km/h. The start takes place classically standing in rows of two. The start box is signaled by the simulation with a red box.

The race is automatically released by rFactor2.

Early starts punish the game with a drive-through penalty /Stop&Go penalty.

d) Races

The race duration is 24 hours. Race start is on 21.01.2023 at 15:00 (CET).

e) Pitstops

The pit stop times are set by the developer Studio397. In exceptional cases, the league management reserves the right to make adjustments.

f) Restart

There is no restart after the server has started because individual drivers, for whatever reason, had a disconnect. Restarts due to accidents are also excluded. In exceptional cases, for example in the event of technical problems on the server, the race management reserves the right to initiate a restart. In this case, the originally planned race time will be observed if possible.

g) Tracklimits

The track limits are generally penalized by the simulation. 10 cut warnings are set on the server side. With the 11th warning, the simulation awards a drive-through penalty. The cut counter is transmitted when there is a driver change.

If the racing commission recognizes an advantage by shortening the track, it can issue separate penalties.

6.5 Circuit

The SRC Dubai race track will be used.

6.5.1 Weather conditions

The weather conditions are retrieved live from several nearest weather stations of the race track and initiated into the simulation. A suitable server plug-in is used as a weather data station. For example, weather data can be retrieved via Wetteronline.com.

6.5.2 Track conditions

Each track starts with online posting or update “green” without grip. When the track is used by the vehicles, the grip conditions change dynamically. Rain washes off grip that has already been drilled off the track. Dynamic lighting and weather conditions place high demands on the PC hardware. Therefore, every team must ensure that smooth image reproduction is guaranteed on their own computer in all conditions.

6.5.3 Limitation of the track

The route boundary is indicated by a white solid line. If curbs are directly adjacent to the white line in curves outside the route, they count towards the track. There must always be two wheels of the vehicle within these distance limits at all times.
