It was a wild race at Indianapolis, with arguably the closest battles of the season. The championship is in the air with only two races left in the fifth season of the Forza Rolex Grand-Am Series.

Next up: Laguna Seca



Track map:


Qualifying Format + Rules

We will start qualifying @ 8:30 P.M. EST on Saturday and it will be a 15 minute session. Depending on how many people are going to race, we might have more than one room, and two/three hosts. It doesn't matter which room you qualify in, since we will set the rooms based on the fastest qualifiers after the qualifying session, and they will join a host for their particular room.


Starting Rules

The first lap is a formation lap. For the first half of the lap, remain single file. When we form the field up, for this track after Rainey Curve heading into Turn 10, everyone must stay in double file formation behind the leader until the start. The leader will set a slow pace (60 mph) around the track keeping everyone tight. You are allowed to weave in the formation to heat the tires prior to forming up in double file, but if you lose control you must rejoin at the back of the grid. As per SimR rules, the pole sitter will give the command to start any time after going through the last corner and before the start/finish line. Once that happens, everyone can drop the hammer. Passing is not allowed until after the start/finish line and will be permitted heading into turn 1.

Track Rules

Shouldn't have too many problems here, just be very careful going through the corkscrew - it is possible to go two-wide but you have to give room. Other than that, try to keep at least two wheels on the track at all times.

Pace

We have different skill levels present in the series so here is a quick rundown of average lap times.

Fast: 1:32
Good: 1:34
Beginner: 1:37

We might start a little late, the race at Watkins Glen starts at 6 PM EST and should end by 8:30, but I want to watch the end of the race before I am online to set things up. Probably the usual "should be online by 8:30 but we don't start until 8:45" kind of thing.

Replay is up on my storefront.

Features some pretty good racing between Joe and myself. Some say it was too aggressive on my part, but I feel like I was just defending vigorously.  blackeye
