Weather/Changing Conditions

  • IF the weather conditions change significantly from the time cars are gridded on track for the public grid-walk, and subsequently moved to parc-fermé (and thus no further changes are permitted), to the time of the race, then drivers/teams WILL be given the opportunity to make some appropriate limited setup changes prior to racing.
  • Any changes MUST be made on the track during the time slot permitted by the steward/promotion. Parc-fermé will NOT be opened up to teams.
