As you may or may not know, real life Super GT series has double file rolling starts. Also, race starts between the two classes are staggered. You can see what I'm talking about in this video [click click].
We will be trying to make a simillar starting procedure to the one from the real life series. Please WATCH this video [click click] to get up to speed with how it is going to work. Additionally, the leader of GT300 class has to reduce the pace slightly in order to build up a gap of around 100 meters to cars from the faster class.
Further informations regarding the formation point and the acceleration zone will be announced in a separate post.
The starting grid will be posted in the Slack chat (or Discord if any of the drivers will be available only there, although I do recommend you joining the Slack chat because it's best place to access me ). If there will be any issues regarding the game setting up the grid in the wrong order, please regroup carefully before the first turn, accordingly to the grid order I've posted.
There will be a quick 10 minute warm-up session right before the qualifying. Once the session timer ticks 10 minutes, I will change the track conditions to our race setting. After that, you will have 15 minutes to post a qualifying lap. If you cross the finish line before the 15 minute mark, you will be able to finish your hotlap
Timetable (UTC times):
Lobby start: 19:00
Race start: 19:30

Cars and BoP:
There are 6 slots available in Gr.2 and 10 in Gr.3 category. Only 2 people can run the same car in the Gr.2 class. There's no such limit in Gr.3 and you're able to choose any car from the selection.
As far as BoP goes, in Gr.2 everyone has to run 100% power and 100% weight ratio. BoP for Gr.3 is standard BoP made by Polyphony up to date with patch 1.23. You can check BoP of your car here, big thank you to djmatt/steve for making this spreadsheet.
