Tips

 

You can have an incident counted against you for being involved in an incident shortly after the race. After the race leaders should drive to the back straight before stopping. Drivers should not make contact with other cars or doing anything that would normally bring out a yellow. At least until the LPI is displayed.

 

Read the book. Run the Nascar 2003 lessons. Ask for help when you need it.

 

To monitor the gap between cars with N2003, use the F2 + SPACE bar to toggle from position to placement.

 

To call for a tow truck come to a stop and use "CTRL + T" or Esc. and select Tow Truck. Use this option when your car does not start at the beginning of the race, or you are heavily damaged.

 

If you are warping during the pace or caution laps, move high or low and maintain your speed. This should help to prevent incidents when your car suddenly reappears. If you have warp during a race, hold your line and maintain your speed.

 

We are here to have fun. If you see someone who is having a hard time try to give them a hand, help them get up to speed. Like we said, you donít have to be fast but clean and courteous. So help your fellow driver if you can.

 

Yellow flag laps will be double file one lap prior to going back to green flag racing. In all cases, you should follow the directions of your spotter as to where to line up. If you are assessed an in-game penalty to go to the end of the longest line, you should indicate you are doing so with an auto-chat message (pass low/high) to other drivers. On road courses yellow flag laps will be run single file. When the yellow comes out ease off the gas. Do not slam on the brakes. Slow down and catch the pace car on the back straightaway. Your spotter should notify you if you are out of position. Once the field has slowed to pace speed, drivers should maintain a .3 to .7 second gap between cars. The driver on the pole should maintain a constant speed until they take the green flag. On the first caution lap approaching pit road, drivers should close the gap in order to let the cars at the back of the line make their pit stops without losing a lap.

 

A driver who is about to be lapped by the leader should choose and hold their line. If your car is not handling well or off the pace, let the leader pass by unhindered. Try to maintain your current speed while giving the preferred line to the leader. If a driver is running speeds comparable to the leaders, then you can try to stay on the lead lap as long as you maintain your line. Remember to race them clean. Once the leader has passed, lapped cars should move high and let other drivers on the lead lap by. Whatever groove you happen to be in, hold your line.

 

Drivers who are given a black flag must serve their penalty. Failure to do so will result in disqualification. Even if you have done nothing wrong, you must serve the "stop & go" penalty. Failure to do so will result in disqualification.

 

Use your auto-chat keys whenever possible (exiting, entering pits, pass low or high) this may not always be possible, but be courteous and do so whenever possible. Drivers making a pit stop should indicate with auto-chat messages, when possible. Slowing down to enter the pits, drivers should drop to the bottom of the racing groove and enter the flat portion of the pit entrance at a safe speed, taking care that the car doesnít spin in front of other drivers.
