    ok all, i am starting to get the divs sorted so if you are yet to get your entry in, or you can see i am missing someone please let me know
    At this stage i am hoping that we get 4 divs, however entries from a few last season are yet to come in.
    If we need to we will move to 3 divs to keep the grid sizes up

    If you are planning on running, but havent let me know, PLEASE get your entry in asap....
    With meet and greet this sunday, its a short turn around, and i want to get things sorted in terms of room hosts etc....
    Thanks stu

    ok guys.... will release track list later tonight when i get a chance to double check a couple of things....

    At this stage, it looks like we will have to merge to 3 divs, but i am still waiting on a heap of guys to let me know either way if they are in or not !
    If we go to 3, looking at the names, i expect we will have full grids every week as there are a lot of very regular drivers there. If i need to swap to 3, i will do it by mid week and then set up the PSN chats as required.

    If there is anyone you know is missing from the list please let me know...
    For meet and greet tomorrow night, invite those confirmed in your division list, and ALSO those who you had on your list from last season.... they might decide to join and like the car and track list ;);)
    Thanks stu

    Sorry I had no idea it was last night, I thought the meet and greet was next weekend. I haven't raced for 6 months, I'll stay here if you wish but I'm sure there are faster drivers around. I'm usually around pace with the D3 guys. I'll hop on tonight and see how I go.

    Hey guys. Generic post to all divs .....
    Round 1 this weekend, hopefully we have a great season of racing.... Thanks for your entry.

    I notice a few ?? over the track list and car selection.... We went with the Aston because it has a heap of grip, but also on the edge you still have to drive it, and it wasnt 'on rails' like the Ford GT. With the chance of a few small errors, we felt it would probably give some better 'racing' and the chance to mix up the results. Also ..... that sound !
    With the tracks, we do have a couple of double ups, but went for tracks used in the GTE season..... As always, cant please everyone, but we hope it gives us some good RACING !

    Driver briefing is linked below. For our new drivers, please have a read through, and watch 'JUZZYS HOTLAP" ...
    will take you 5 mins ! For our regulars, have a refresh ;)
    http://raceonoz.com/forums/index.php?threads/season-8-driver-briefings.3772/

    I am about to tidy up the div placements, we will stay with 4 divs, and all look like regular drivers, so hopefully we have full grids at each round. I will also post in the PSN chats, and tidy up room hosts and room captains.

    Also, dont forget to check out the teams championship and see what team you are in. I will be getting that sorted hopefully in the next hour or so..... will need the team captains to make their driver choices.

    Good luck for the season guys.

    2/3 whatever lol. I'm making up the numbers in whichever division I'm in this season but either way I won't be slow enough to affect the front runners.

    Good qualy for me, definitely my best effort.
    I got lucky in the race and just stayed on the track, tried to make no mistakes and hold on from the faster drivers catching behind.

    Started off well but a couple of spins killed it for me.

    Have high hopes for Silverstone, looks like I might actually have some pace if I can keep it pointed in the right direction...

    Lucky you, I can't keep it straight for more than 7 laps and have no pace either. Bloody Gaz is in the 58's every lap!

    Really enjoyed that tonight guys, I came in at 8th place and it felt like a podium! I really struggled on this track early in the week, I was getting flogged by D4 drivers in practice and I do mean flogged!
    I qualified in 7th I think with a time that was close to my pb so was happy with that and then had a good start again and saw the trouble again and managed to steer clear of it like last week. Ran in 4th for the first lap and pitted straight in like I always planned to. Came out at the back and for the next 10 or 12 laps it all went to plan as I reeled in the guys pitting ahead of me and got myself back up to 6th and battling with Jim, had some fun there before letting him go as I noticed it was slowing me down up to a second a lap holding him off (channeling my inner LH and planting the car in the most awkward of positions on every turn) and there was still plenty of laps to do and he just had more pace. Unfortunately for me my tyres started to give way earlier than I expected, by the time I came across Natman on a set of new rubber coming out of the pits my poor tyres were rooted and I couldn't do any better than a 2.01 even though my fuel had finally lightened the car up again. Had a couple spins before realizing I had to just nurse the car home and settle for 8th.
    In hindsight my strategy let me down but I was happy with my drive and I had a lot of fun again this week which is what it's all about.
    I hope to be a bit more competitive in the coming weeks as I have a lot more experience on the tracks than I have on these first two so far but I'm 50/50 whether I can make the next race as I may have to go to Sydney to pick up my new van.

    :thumbsup:

    Q:2 R:5....:(
    Had a great quali, best lap I’d done, so happy with that.

    Race: Lap 1. WHAT A SHAMBLES. Crap start, crap driving, not switched on & head not in the race. Massive understeer at turn 1 and took out Gaz like an absolute muppet. I assume I was then in everyone else’s way as I was sideways for a bit. Please accept my apologies.

    Put my head down and tried my best to make up time and spots and spun a few times. Had some really good battles in the mid pack, but found it very hard to pass. Note to self, make sure you qualify good.

    Mostly happy with the 5th place finish, top 3 were too good with what looked like no mistakes. #sorrygazza
