Parc ferme (‘closed park’) is a closed and secured area in the paddock where the cars are weighed and checked by race officials. Cars must be in parc ferme from within three and a half hours of the end of the qualifying until five hours before the start of the race.

Cars are in parc ferme conditions from the time they first exit the pit garage during qualifying
