    ADDITIONAL RULE TO THE STARTPROCEDURE:

    As of now there will be a
    "safe zone" for the start. You can not overtake in that safe zone and the polesitter has to keep his speed at 120 km/h = 74 miles. Cars will have to drive behind eachother. If you do overtake in the safe zone, you get a drive through penalty for the next race. Not very realistic, but all those crashes arn't either.

    Procedure:
    1. start formationlap
    2. go to startingbox
    3. start at the green light
    4. go through the safe zone at 120 km/h
    5. start the race at the end of the safe zone


    The safe zone for Spa will be from the startline till right after Eau Rouge.

    Who wants to team up with me as a GEAR team member for this series?
    I'm getting too little team points on my own :)

    Just to be clear. If the pole sitter exits the safe zone and starts racing, you still have to wait untill you cleared the safe zone yourself.

    Race day PW has been posted to the Championship event page !
    Guys we have an issue with the tracks pit speeds .. The data in the rfm is correct 100kph but is being over written by the track file (from the F1 88' track mod combo) to a speedy 249 MPH , (I don't know how many kph's that is but 249 mph is hauling ass ! lol ) we never got to the race session to see if the limit is set there but should be 100kph or around 60mph so just don't abuse it & try to keep it under 100kph when pitting .. you will pay at the pit out hair pin if you get to much speed :D

    I have opened up the rfm to try to fix it but the rfm is already correct ..the screw up is happening from the track data so we just have to deal with ..
