V8 World Supercars – Rd5 Briefing

Starting procedure

On green, start off the grid with your pit limiter engaged, and form up into single file.
You can disengage the pit limiter any time after the apex of Turn 1. Note that heavy application of power at this point will be difficult, sooth acceleration will be the key to a good start
