Each car will use a low-speed BoP, with no further adjustments allowed. DR is off for this race, but SR is on as Polyphony continues the trend of making Race A only half-ranked.

There is light mechanical damage in this race, along with light shortcut penalties and penalties for collisions with other cars.

Race B

Dragon Trail - Seaside - 4 laps

Next up is a trip to the Death Chicane at Dragon Trail Seaside for a four-lap race in Gr.4 cars.

Everyone will be on the Racing Hard tyre in this one, with 1x fuel consumption and tyre wear. The 16-car field will use a rolling start, so be sure to get a qualifying lap in or you'll be way behind the leader with little hope of victory.
