The qualifying session, that will determine the starting grid, is a multi car session divided in three parts:
One 15 minutes session reserved for GT3 class.
One 15 minutes session reserved for 991 class.
One 15 minutes session reserved for GT4 class.
One 15 minutes session reserved for TCR class.
Cars that cross the finish line before their allotted time is over are allowed to finish their lap.
Using text or voice chat on the @drivers, @allteams and @club channels are prohibited during the qualifying session.
During qualifying session it is prohibited to go on track while it’s the turn of another class. Race Control shall notify the teams when their respective sessions are open. Penalty: Disqualification from the qualifying session, resulting in no time.
Cars who don’t set a time have to start at the back of their class.
Cars who have to start from pit lane shall not grid and wait for the “missed start” button to be shown on the launch screen. Any cars that have to start from the pits must wait for the last car on track to pass pit exit before exiting the pits. It is the responsibility of the team to give the signal for their driver to join the track.
The grid time may be extended by race control, to follow the time schedule.
As soon as the safety car leaves the track at the end of the formation lap, the field is paced by the driver on pole position.
Once the class leaders are in control of the field they must ensure that their actions do not cause issues of safety for those behind them, for example slowing down again. When causing dangerous situations, a penalty is at the discretion of the stewards.
The organisation designates a starting area, where the pole sitter can accelerate and start the race.
A class is racing under green flag when the pole sitter accelerates or when iRacing displays the green flag. It is allowed to overtake everyone before the start finish line except overtaking the class pole sitter. Penalty:Appendix 2.
