Tuning & Driving options: Open except countersteering assist is prohibited. Sporting Regulations: Start/Re-start procedures: Race will start with a formation lap behind the safety car, (Oldtimer is or driver) which will pull onto pitroad at the end of the formation lap. Drivers will be required to form up 2 by 2 fashion on Conrod straight and the pace will be controlled to ensure everyone can get through the chase complex (turns 20, 21 & 22) without issues. The safety car will speed up and pull into the pitlane leaving the pole sitter to control the field through the last turn (23 - Murray's corner) and unto the start/finish straight where you will accelerate to racing speed. Competition Yellow: There will be a mandatory yellow flag period consisting of 2 laps behind the safety car after approximately 36 minutes of racing. There will be a 5 min warning followed by a countdown of 1min incraments then 30sec. You are allowed to race to the start/finish line when the yellow flag period starts, but once past it you must hold position until you join the safety car train. (You may do so at racing speeds) THE PITS WILL BE CLOSED AT THE 30 sec MARK OF THIS COUNTDOWN! If you choose to pit during the countdown, you MUST already be in your pitbox with a (P) next to your name before the 30 seconds to yellow mark. Anyone who pits under the yellow flag period will have to wait for the field to make a complete circuit before rejoining the race. The race will restart at the end of yellow flag lap 2, with cars in single file and under control of the leader after the safety car pulls into the pits. Pit is considered open once the safety car has pulled in so theoretically anyone (including the leader/s) could follow the safety car into the pits without penalty. Race Etiquette: Drive clean, drive fair, have fun.
