So, no pace car when somebody crashes, just half lap formation cruseing?

When an accident happens --> Local yellows as in Formula one, i.e. you can't overtake in that sector but you go on at race speed.

The race start at lap 1 ---> Will happen when the leader reaches the backstretch and the admin types "GREEN FLAG" in the chat. Even if rFactor shows green flag before, the start will ONLY happen when the admin types it in the chat.

by looking at that track map, it looks like a really shitty track! But you get a pretty nice rhytm on it, so it is surprisingly fun!

Im lost.
Can you please go step by step, after jumping in our car in the box. One lap + half, or just half, means, from box to the backstraight?

Ok....

The server will grid the cars on the straight opposite the pits; this is the finish line for the race. When the light turns green, the pole sitter will pace the field around to the long back straight, where the green flag will be given. In effect, the pace lap is only half a lap.

The reasons for this are:
- we can set the server at 100 laps even. If we did one and a half pace laps, we would need to set the server at 101 laps, then edit the results post race.

- less time for people to get bogged down or disorganized at low speed.
