The end timer will be set to ensure that all racers have a chance to finish.
Races will have a mandatory pitstop
in which your car must come to a complete stop and refuel. Mandatory pitstops must be taken before the last lap. Not taking the mandatory pitstop (or taking it on the last lap) will result in a 10 spot penalty.Double race nights will not require pit stops (I'll do my best to make sure the distances don't force the thirstier cars to pit).
Please review the Rules of Clean Racing
. While not everything is relevant to Forza, it provides a good basis for courteous and clean racing.
Remember, the race isn't won in the first corner! That being said, sometimes things happen and restart may be called if there are a significant number of cars involved in a first lap incident.
