BRIEFING – Watkins Glen Classic Boot

28 Laps , 152.04 km
43.0+ Liters suggested. Always check with your own driving

5.43 km, ~1.45 Liters per lap

  • No active overtakes until after Turn 1 Right, magenta in the map above.
  • Please remember: no three wide in lap 1. Getting 3-wide into the outer loop on the first straight is tempting… but illegal. The risk of a huge crash is just too high.
  • Voluntarily driving off-track to gain an advantage is illegal
  • Collecting an excessive number of 1x or gaining an advantage by driving off-track in Turn 1 shall be penalized after the race. This was decided by polling the drivers. ‘Excessive’ or ‘advantage’ is at the sole stewards’ discretion. Please respect the track limits so that we won’t have controversy and discussion.
  • We will not monitor driving off-track, but not getting a 1x, in Turn 8. We ask to please stay within the track boundaries if you can. Thank you.
  • The car will tend to understeer on the first lap. It is common to attempt a pass, drift wide and cause a crash. Please be careful.
  • Passing is easy on this track. The race is long with many passing opportunities, no reason to take risks when a mistake can cause a huge pile up. Remember that you do not have to be ahead every single corner; avoid unnecessary risks and it will be more fun for everyone
  • No planned team games (e.g. draft in qualify), thank you.
