Rolling start regulations
« on: May 25, 2011, 09:09:38 AM »
During a rolling start, the leader must keep a speed between 20 and 60 km/h.
The others must follow the leader at the closest distance possible. If a driver goes too slow, it must drop to the last position. If already in last position, the driver is disqualified.
It is possible to overtake, but the position must be given back before the race starts. There is a 10 seconds penalty for overtaking.
Approaching start line, all drivers must stay inside the corridors, with a speed between 30 and 50 km/h. One second penalty is given for each km/h above of below speed limits.
When the starting lights turn green, the race starts. If they remain red, drivers must remain in the corridors and then do another rolling start lap.

Note:
You can practice offline creating a race ( from main menu: race -> host local ) and then from "Event Info" page click on the arrow button on the right of "Final Length" to jump directly to race session.

The yellow line used for rolling starts has a cone on left and right side.

Yellow line is track builder's responsibility.
Nothing must be done in track editor. Line data is automatically generated, 25 meters from start line.
