Title: UKGPL Season 34 (2019) 1967 F1 Privateers - Rouen - Jan 27
Post by: Billy Nobrakes on February 08, 2019, 11:04:38 PM +0000
Season 34 Graduates Cup – Round 2 –  Rouen

Round 2 of the Graduates Cup will take place at Rouen. A classic 60’s racing circuit, it did host the French Grand Prix but not in the 1967 season. It is, however, a Papyrus original. From its opening in 1950, Rouen-Les-Essarts was recognized as one of Europe's finest circuits, with modern pits, a wide track, and spectator grandstands. The circuit (which ran on public roads) had a few medium straights, a cobbled hairpin turn (Nouveau Monde) at the southernmost tip, and a few blind corners through a wooded hillside. The appeal was greatly enhanced by the climb from Nouveau Monde at 56 metres to Gresil at 149 metres.

Both Works & Privateers drivers will participate on the same grid. All drivers have the same tokens allocations. We will, however, run two championships, & separate points will be scored for each. The race will be moderated as a combined grid. Privateers are asked not to hold up a Works driver whilst being lapped, but you may race fairly for track position.

The important difference is that Privateers are permitted one reset with a compulsory Stop & Go (taken within two laps). Although the race setting is “Intermediate” Works drivers are not allowed to take a reset.

There are currently 18 full time & 7 reserve drivers registered. Reserve drivers should therefore wait until 21.05 UK time before joining the qualifying session. A grid slot will therefore be available for all full time drivers, provided they join before 21.05.
