Driver’s Briefing – V8 World Supercars – Rd3 – Barbagallo

Welcome to Round 3 of the World SimSports V8 World Supercars Series.

Barbagallo Raceway at Wanneroo is Western Australia’s only permanent racing circuit and has been operated continuously since 1969.
On the same weekend we are running this race, Barbagallo will be hosting the Perth Supernight event – a night time Supercars race. See here.

Starting procedure

There will be no formation lap. Drivers are to start the race with their pit lane speed limiter engaged. At the green light, move off the grid in single file.

The race starts at the exit of T1 (indicated by the blue line on the map). You can disengage the pit limiter at the point where the pit lane exit meets the track. Starting earlier than this may mean the driver receives a penalty.

Other notes

As there is no formation lap, tyres will be cold. Take it easy into turns 2, 3 and 4. You will have time to make up places as the race goes on, but you can throw it away in the early corners if you are not careful.

Start time

Qualifying starts at 9:00am UTC and lasts for 15 minutes. There will be a 5 minute warmup, then straight to race for 40 minutes.
 

Entries for the series are still possible, as are bespoke car skins from our admin team. If you are not registered and wish to take part we would love to accommodate you! See the links in the title bar for details.
