5.51 km, ~1.63 Liters per lap
  • No active overtakes until after Turn 10 Left, magenta in the map above.
  • There is a tight hairpin just after the no pass zone. Be very careful to avoid accidents; they will be heavily penalized.
    No late diving; be aware of sudden slow downs and concertina effects.
  • If you get a slow down, you must serve it offline without hindering other drivers
  • Excessive number of off-tracks will be penalized after the race.
    If you reach 15 1x, you are very close to a time penalty and should start worrying about it.
    4x and 2x do not count in this regard.
  • Please remember that taking 1x on purpose to gain an advantage even a single time, e.g. gaining or defending a position, can be punished for race.
  • No lapping in the middle of the esses, with rare exceptions.
    All corners there are linked. Mess one up, to help somebody through, and you will be slow on the racing line for all others, which is really dangerous to other upcoming cars.
  • There might be cars with different downforce and tyres in different conditions; be aware of speed differentials
  • Careful when exiting the pits in qualify (and race if need be).
