The cutoff this week is 105%

Keep an eye on Liveracers and manage your efforts accordingly.

As of this moment, you need to be under 1:27.000 to avoid being moved to the back for Race 2...

I did some testing to determine that we will be doing a computer controlled rolling start but we will give the pace car a 30 second head start.

Just a heads up. I let the server go to race and started. At the end of the pace lap, green was called. All the AI slowed up and I went around a few, again after Green, Green, Green was called. I was given a drive thru penalty for "passing before the S/F line". I'm not sure what that means for the races but it's something to be aware of.

Thanks, Brandon.

Hmmm, should be able to pass before S/F but maybe that's standard but hasn't happened with humans.

We tested with 3 humans last night, 3 or 4 times. With penalties ON, giving the pace car a head start caused problems so we'll leave the grid when the pace car does, just need to get better at transitioning to and from single file.

In a quick test this AM, I have no idea where the pit lane speed limit starts. I didn't see a line or cone. If you need to pit during the race, be careful.

There's a light controlling the pit lane on the right side (at the end of the k-wall?). I've been using that but it wouldn't hurt to rip out of the pits with the limiter off to see when you get penalized.
