BRIEFING – Road Atlanta

37 Laps , 151.0 km
43.0+ Liters suggested. Always check with your own driving

~1.11 Liters per lap

  • Driving slow during qualify to improve performance on the following lap (lately referred to as brake dragging, even if done without braking) is strictly forbidden.
  • No active overtakes until after Turn 7 Right, magenta in the map above.
    No 3-wide for the entire lap 1, as usual, no matter how tempting it might be.
  • No lapping in the middle of T1R and in the entire Esses.
    If you are lapped, give way before or after. If you are lapping, sit back and be patient.
  • Incidents are very common in T1R, be careful.
    A driver tries to pass on the inside, tracks out wide and crashes into the other car.
  • The blind Turn 2-3 is not really a place to pass.
    Not strictly forbidden, but certainly not recommended.
  • Be careful of the concertina effect into the slow corners. Avoid speed differentials. Do not try to be faster or slower than the cars around you; keep a constant gap to the car in front; avoid sudden and abrupt movements. No lane changes, no hard braking. Brake early and gently; early and hard is bad, just like braking late.
  • Please remember that driving off track voluntarily (1x) is strictly prohibited.
    You can receive a time penalty post-race for having too many off-tracks (undisclosed number). There is also an automatic slow down in race if you have too many incident points.
