    If anybody feels they are not placed in the correct division, please send me a pm and I will review your placement.

    Also we are taking nominations for host and room captain. Please state your interest in either of these positions here.

    Room captains collect results and can also be called upon to handle room invites.

    I can captain if need be. I can also try hosting. Never really done before but I think my connection should be able to handle it. Can try it on Sunday. But might be best to have another waiting in the wings for hosting if it doesn't work well.

    Thanks Ads

    Will be setting up room shortly and invites will be sent.

    Will be looking at doing short blats around each track so we can all get a bit of a feel for this beast.

    Most likely will try and kick off at 8.15pm, doesn't matter if you're late, just jump in when you can.

    Please note that the race distance for Donington National has been reduced from 38 laps to 35 laps. This change is to keep the race to approximately 40mins plus maybe 1 or 2 minutes.

    Welcome all to Season 3!!

    Of course as you all know we will be running the Caterham Seven 620, which is quite a tricky little car to drive sometimes but still should make a great season of racing. Some tips to get the best out of this car:

    -Turn down the steering sensitivity to slow the super-fast and sometimes twitchy feel at the wheel.
    -Avoid the edges of the track like the plague! The grass and sometimes even the ripple strips can grab hold of the front of this car and send it towards the fence or pirouetting quicker than you can say "oh crap". You can learn where the safe spots and the not so safe spots are in a few laps of testing so just try to make yourself aware of the hot-spots.
    -Steer with the rear. This car can hold some pretty mean slides, and can be used to your advantage if used correctly. Don't get too carried away though, as the tyre wear is on accelerated and you dont wanna have to change tyres if no-one else is.


    We are running FUEL BURN OFF and TYRE WEAR ACCELERATED this season (tyre wear will be real for the sprints). Some tracks you may need to change tyres, others you may not. I will put a note in these race regulation setups whether a tyre change is recommended.



    [​IMG]

    ROUND 1 : DONINGTON PARK NATIONAL - 35 LAPS - 1/7/18
    - Qual Time - @ 12pm - (1 weather slot - Light Cloud)
    - Race Time - @ 1pm - Light cloud / Medium cloud / Light cloud / Clear
    - Time progression - REAL
    - Compulsory pit stop - YES
    - Fuel : OFF
    - TYRE WEAR : ACCELERATED
    - Weather progression : Sync to race
    - Time progression : Real time



    ROOM OPEN : Most room captains will 'try' to have rooms open by about 7:50 EDST. Please be on time, or let the room captain or div thread if you may be late. If all agree, the room may wait for you, Within reason. Please remember we have drivers from NZ, and later starts mean a much later night for them.

    QUALIFYING : 8:10 EDST

    RACE START TIME : 8:20 EDST

    ROUND 1 ISSUES : The start of the season is quite often a bit harder to get started with new guys joining, new hosts and a bit of red mist ! PLEASE, try to be on time to the room. It will give everyone a chance to sort any possible issues...

    LAG ISSUES / ROOM RESTARTS : This is up to the room host. If there is a Disconnection at race start, it is sporting to try to get them back in, which may mean a new room to be set up. I always look at 1 or 2 starts if required due to DSC, but as it gets later everyone needs to be aware of getting things going. Please be as reasonable as you can with this....

    TURN 1 LAP 1 : This has the potential to ruin someones night if we don't use our heads ! The brake zone is long, for the guys at the back half of the grid, PLEASE make sure you don't cannonball through the guys in front. Last season was pretty good, however we could always be better ! Should be everyone's goal to get through the first lap with ZERO contact. Give room and run in your 'lane' till you have space to run the normal race line.

    TRACK LIMITS : As we are running with 'track limit penalties" OFF, we will run with our usual Raceonoz track limit regulations. This means you MUST have at least 2 wheels on the ripple strip OR white line that defines the track limit. The main areas we will be watching that seem to be hotspots for cutting are the fast right at the bottom of the hill end of sector 1, and the final chicane. Drivers will be penalised if they cut the track to gain any advantage.

    COMPULSORY PIT STOP : YES. You WON'T need to change tyres this round. You will need to save a Caterham strategy, with 1L of fuel, no tyres and turn off all damage repairs. Make sure you select that strategy before you go to the track in qual, and then check it in the ready up screen before race start.

    PIT ENTRY / EXIT : Drivers MUST make an attempt to use the pit entry / exit lines. The Pit entry for Donington is pretty straight forward and is just after the final chicane, you will need to be at 60KLM at the pit entry control line, any more than that you will receive a penalty, or a possible DSQ if you go in way too fast.

    PIT EXIT : Drivers MUST use the full pit exit lane, which rejoins the track at the entry to TURN 1. You must remain to the left inside the exit lines and be aware of fast approaching traffic. If you are on the circuit and approaching the pit exit as someone is exiting, be sure to make some room to avoid contact and possibly approach the turn in the middle of the track instead of the far left. A little courtesy can avoid ruining 2 races...


    BLUE FLAGS : Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. Best to get off the race line, and with a small lift let them go, so you can continue the race without incident. Failure to observe blue flags WILL result in a penalty

    STEWARDS GROUP AND RACE PROTESTS : This season the stewards will be myself and Garyw61. If you have reason to protest, please SAVE YOUR REPLAY, and then let us know via a PM.

    DO NOT BLOW UP IN THE FORUM OR IN THE ROOM CHAT. There have been multiple incidents where the replays from drivers have been different, so its true that sometimes things are not as black and white as they may seem. You have until MIDNIGHT, Monday night to register your protest via PM. We will ask for video evidence from both drivers or room captain to make any decision.

    SAVE YOUR REPLAY : If the room host can ask all drivers to save their replay would be good before exiting the room.....once they exit out and the option goes, it cant be retrieved !

    And make sure you have room to save the reply - the game is only allowed to hold 1GB of data this includes your profile, replays and setups.
    If presentment with the notice saying there is no room, you can’t delete what’s in there without closing the game.
