CARS AND TRACKS
The car we are racing during the entire series will be the Porsche GT3 CUP 992.
A hotlap qualification process will be used to identify the top 60 fastest drivers registered to take part in the competition. Those top 60 drivers will be invited to take part in a three split Qualification Quarter-final event race. Each race will last for 20 minutes without a requirement to perform a pit stop, and the top 10 finishers from each split will move forward into a combined 30 car Qualification Semi-Final. The top seven finishers of the Semi-Final will automatically qualify for the Super-Final day races on January 13th, 2024.
Finalists have to attend and race in Maastricht at the #SFE2024 SIM EXPO.
Last year's champion Damian Skowron will be our last finalist and will try to defend his title.
Each Qualification Quarter-Final split will be made up of 20 drivers from the hotlap qualification phase. Drivers will be randomly assigned to a Quarter-Final split. The configuration of each split will be communicated during the invitation phase at the close of the hotlap competition. Sim Formula Europe reserves the right to promote drivers who failed to make the top 60 drivers into the Quarter-Final races, should drivers be unable to commit to the Quarter-Final event. Should this be necessary, the next fastest driver from position 61 down will be invited to participate, until such a time as the three splits are full.
The minimum age of participation is 18 years.
By participating in the SFE 2024 championship, you accept this "Sim Formula Europe 2024 Championship Format" and the:
Just some hotlap/time trial rules. We will be reviewing all laps that qualify in the top 60 and performing spot-checks, those that do not observe correct driving may have their lap removed or will be disqualified (DQ).
Observe the track limits at all times, if we observe track cutting that is unrealistic with all wheels in an off-track position the lap will be invalidated.
Do not use off-tracks prior to the lap starting to gain speed.
Do not use external software to modify performance.
Respect your competitors.
