more questions as I get up to speed on these races...

The 20% fuel setting: Does that mean the max fuel load is 20% of capacity? I will test the stint length of this fuel load, but will there be pit stops with this amount?

The wing settings are a little overwhelming....with the first race being monza, should I be looking at changing the stock setting, or does iracing use different baselines for each track. (I know this is usually secret information, but I'm just wondering how much testing and setup to put into these races). Just don't want to get blown by on the track.

Lastly, will anyone be running practice sessions in-between races. I'd love to see how I stack up before the race day.

Thanks again.

Hi,

Yes you will have to pit at least once.

For setup, I suggest that you install SetupSync. http://iracingsetupsync.nickthissen.nl/Download  You will find lots of setup there, and also some will share theirs.

Practices will be on Wednesday, the day before the race.  You can find the practice schedule here : http://www.precisionracingleague.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=175

Hope this answer your questions...feel free to ask for anything else

You must stop for fuel only. We do not recommend to change tire as the races are too short and it takes too much time to change tire. So make sure your uncheck your tire when pitting.

So I know some practice is mandatory for this series, and I agree with that.  Will there be other sessions than the Wednesday before?  I have 2 races left in my F1 2016 series and it is Wednesday evenings so I will miss the first few practices.  I certainly put in my own time but I assume you guys would want to see me in a hosted session as well?

Gunner, practices are not mandatory here. We leave it up to the drivers to find the time to practice on there own if they cannot make our PRL scheduled practices. It's all about performance and in order to perform people have to put the time in to practice whether in our sessions or on there own.
