In Round 1 at Zolder, some drivers departed the grid for the pace lap before the green light came on.  This resulted in damage to several cars.  Just so everyone is clear on the start procedure:

- Drivers do their usual recon lap before the pits close, and take up their grid position while the clock runs down.

- After the clock runs out, DRIVERS MUST WAIT FOR THE GREEN LIGHT TO COME ON, then and ONLY then, can the pace lap begin.  A chat announcement from the admin, saying "START PACE LAP" will accompany the green light. 

- Towards the end of the pace lap, the admin will say "BUNCH UP FOR START" in the chat, meaning the front few rows must slow to apx. 100 kph to bring the field together.

- The admin will say "GREEN FLAG" in the chat for the rolling start at the end of the pace lap.

Also take note from the rules:

(During the pace lap) Do not overtake, stay packed, no more than 2 or 3 car lengths between each car. Zigzaging to warm up your tires is not allowed.
