At 2:50 pm / 11:50 am the race weekend will be restarted, do not press „race“! The race control will let the teams know when to leave the box. There is no particular order however at this stage you will need your spotter. The spotter sees in the timing a meter count this indicates the distance to the starting position. The pole position is at the end of sector 2 the remaining positions are within 30 meters each. The margin for your starting position is 15 meters + / - is the car lined up properly you will see a green OK in the timing. When you reached your position please park your car at the right side of the track so other cars can pass.
If a driver passed his starting position you will have to do a full lap and restart the process – the best way is to drive slowly to be on the safe side.
As soon all drivers reached their position the race control will start the formation lap in the chat window. Start your engine and go into the single file, each pole setter of the GTE and GTC class has to hold a distance of 20 sec. to the last car of the class ahead.
After crossing the start/finish line the actual formation lap starts, the race control will give the command “green this lap” which simply indicates that the race will start at the end of this lap. The pole setter has to drive in a moderate speed (between 100 km/h and 120 km/h) the gap to the car ahead should not be more then 2-3 car length.
Overtaking is not permitted. If a car spins of (own mistake) he is allowed to get back on track however is not allowed to take back is old position and has to start the race where he is – he has to make sure getting back on the track is possible by not blocking any other drives!
As soon the drivers reach the starting position (sector 2) the double file formation starts, at this stage ALL DRIVERs have to use the Pit limiter! The pole setter is then allowed to increase the speed at a dedicated area which will be announced during the briefing, at this point the race is green and overtaking is permitted!
Article 2.8 – Restarts

All drivers have to reduce the speed to 80 with in time and then use the speed limiter, as soon all cars have reached the speed the driver is allowed to join the server – their will be a lag for all driver as the car will be loaded from the game.
