    Rnd 9 of the season will be next Monday January 20th and is the final Sprint cup round, with a 60 minute sprint race in the same format as the real Blancpain Sprint rounds.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    This will have a 10 minute midrace pit window, with a mandatory stop to change tyres. there will be a 10 minute qualifying session. Fuel is not allowed to be added during the race, don't be stingy with the free fuel as all you can do is fuel save or DNF if you don't start with enough.



    RACE/PRACTICE SERVERS PASSWORD "Season1" Hotlap server password is "hotlap"

    entry is also locked to only those on the season entry thread. All that started any rnd will be locked to the car they chose for the rest of the season.

    Time scale will be 1x as the real sprint rounds are 1hr races, session times will be as below.

    Free Practice 45 minutes: 8:30pm AEDT (in game Friday 6pm)
    Qualifying, 10 minutes: 9:15pm AEDT (in game Saturday 11am)
    Race, 60 minutes: 9:30pm AEDT (in game Saturday 2pm)

    A reminder for all to ensure they have set a lap in the Qualifying Server and anyone not yet entered to enter in this entry thread

    Please note whatever car you start your first official season race in you will be committed to for the full season.

    NEW season Entries Close strictly at 6:30pm AEDT on race night.

    Any entries after this are accepted for the following round. The race server will be passworded with a locked entry list so anyone not on the entry list wont get in even with the password. To be entered in for the season you must enter in the entry thread, provide a GUID in the relevant thread and also set a qualy lap in the league qualy server prior to 6:30pm on the Monday race night.
    NEW FULL FORMATION LAP MANUAL START PROCEDURE

    After testing the full formation manual start procedure on Wednesdays warm up races these turned out pretty good and easily manageable, ideally everyone will join the discord channel for race nights to hear any directions regarding the race start.

    The general rule will be to start single file and follow the leader, you can weave and warm your tyres up here but be aware of cars ahead and behind at all times. Do your best to avoid causing any issues for others, then the second last corner of the track start to line up double file (may change for some tracks and be in that rounds thread)

    Everyone should be in formation by the time the field makes it around the last turn and cars on the main straight should maintain 80kmh until the green light is given.

    Anyone going considerably early enough to gain an advantage here may be given a post race time penalty. Cars behind the leader aren't allowed to back up and then anticipate the green to get an unfair run on the cars ahead of them. Same with front row cars they arent allowed to accelerate before the lights are green.

    Yanet's Weather Forecast :thumbsup:

    Dynamic weather will be used again for this round, its fairly conservative still the same as most of the season though a few races have been wet. Here are track conditions prior to race 2 in the real round and this is close to what the hotlap server will be set as and base ambient will be 22c for the round.

    Tonight we will have 2x 30 minute races at Hungaroring for Wednesday warmups. The Azure Singapore server is currently offline, I will test the AWS one. This has recently given huge pings for aussies and if thats still the case we will run from an Aissie server.

    There will be no pit stops forced tonight so just 2x30 sprints usual time 8.30 Melbourne time practice. 9:15 q1.

    I have put up a server for tonights fun run on server 07 Singapore AWS and server 01 Australia AWS, if pings are ok for all to the Singapore server we will use that if they are high we will use the Aussie one.

    Here is a full video from race 1, start was a bit of a mess lol. I noticed Andy seemed a fair way behind me so I backed off to let him catch up then it went green. 3 wide into t1 amazed I only got a small tap as likely the other 2 didnt know I was the meat in the sandwich. :D Not an easy track to the pass on but would have been interesting had we got to this situation in the longer sprint race to see if you could use an undercut/overcut to pass someone you cant manage to on track.

    Caught ya napping boys! ;) Gotta ride the Terry train if you snooze the alarm.

    No such luck in R2 where you guys flew off into the distance. Once again, my apologies to A. Sabo for the double contact in that one.

    hope to make this one! anything that can be replaced has been now replaced in my bloody brake... had 2 days of great use so far... but the proof will be after the weekend... Sundays has been when it's normally gone back to belly up... fortunately sometime next week my new pedals arrive but I've been offline for so long it's sucked...
