NOTES FROM YOUR RACE ENGINEER

In pre-qualifying event and qualifying before the race, it is important to get your tires up to temperature and more importantly up to the optimal pressure. 

The optimal hot pressures for the tires are front 33 Psi and rear 34 Psi. The optimal tire core temperature is between 75°C and 95°C, you might struggle to reach optimal temperature, but above 60°C it is ok.

It takes 2-3 laps of tire warming for the tires to warm up, keep that in mind when you are calculating the fuel in the qualifying sessions.

Traction control is too aggressive in this car, so just leave it off and control your right foot.

LIVE BROADCAST

Division 1 races will be streamed on World Sim Series and BaTCC social media channels.

LIVERIES

Premium subscription drivers can upload a custom livery. Use KTK livery for a chance to win real life racing test. Download the skin template here. For more info about the liveries see the rules.

GOOD TO KNOW
