    Driver Briefing for Round 2. Sorry late this week, been a bit crook and not able to get on for any laps.....

    ROUND 2 : TEXAS ROAD - 32 LAPS - 21/5/18

    - Qual Time - @ 3pm - (1 weather slot - Heavy Cloud)
    - Race Time - @ 4pm - Heavy cloud / Heavy cloud / Medium cloud / Light Cloud
    - Time progression - REAL
    - Compulsory pit stop - YES
    - Fuel : Real
    - TYRE WEAR : Authentic
    - Weather progression : Sync to race
    - Time progression : Real time
    Sorry about crappy track map.....was the best i could find.....

    [​IMG]

    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 : Well done last week to everyone. Only 1 incident that was protested, great job from everyone across all 4 divs. We only had 1 issue with the pit stops in all 4 divs. PLEASE MAKE SURE you have your pit locator on, and i would strongly advise (again) that you have a "pit request" button mapped.

    DIV 4 DRIVERS : ANNE is hosting for the 2nd time, so please bare with her as she sets things up, has any possible issues and works through getting everyone in the room. you Will need to save race results, and dont forget your replay ! Please help each other out as you get the season started. Good job last week, hopefully there are a few more drivers there....

    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 dont use our heads ! The brake zone is long, for the guys at the back half of the grid, PLEASE make sure you dont cannonball through the guys in front. Round 1 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. There are a couple of spots drivers will have to be aware of cutting. The TURN 5 CHICANE must be clean. Drivers are also NOT PERMITTED to run on the lower apron, IE left of the white line on the oval.

    CONTACT : Is to be avoided at all times..... If you rear end someone and gain an advantage, YOU ARE EXPECTED to give the spot back. Side by side 'rubbing' is racing, within reason, but all drivers are expected to give racing room. The obvious places here are TURN 3, TURN 6 and the final turn back onto the front straight

    COMPULSORY PIT STOP : YES. You WONT need to change tyres or take fuel. You will need to save a Mustang strategy, with 1L of fuel, no tyres and turn off all damage repairs. This stop should come up as 'about' 1.3 sec, however the stopwatch will stop at about 2.3 sec. 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.
    More info in the pitstop thread http://raceonoz.com/forums/index.php?threads/pcars-2-pitstop-thread.3094/


    PIT ENTRY / EXIT : Drivers MUST make an attempt to use the pit entry / exit lines. The Pit entry for Texas is pretty straight forward, 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. TBH, im not certain where the pit entry line starts ! At this stage, you can enter late, however be certain there is no-one on your left if you choose to go in late.
    PIT EXIT : Drivers MUST use the full pit exit lane, which is on the apron, all the way down to the turn 3 hairpin. The exit is shown with broken white lines in the braking zone. When exiting the pits please watch for faster cars on the race line. Likewise, if a car is exiting the pits and has track position, other cars are expected to yield.


    BLUE FLAGS : Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. With the 2 classes there is slightly more chance of blue flags coming into play, so you should be aware of the leaders coming up on you, and move out of the way as soon as possible. Best to get off the race line, and with a small lift let them go, so you can continue the fight with those in your class. Failure to observe blue flags WILL result in a penalty

    STEWARDS GROUP AND RACE PROTESTS : This season the stewards will be myself, Ad2mny 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 !

    I dont know if its a good idea or not, im not sure if we and div 3 are expecting more players or not..but while they had only 8 and we had 9...maybe we could join up ...it seems most of us were pretty close to there top 4 if not right in the mix then the rest most of us were very similer if not faster.

    ROUND 3 : RAUPUNA : SPRINT ROUND : 1/3/18
    1 x 17 lap / 1 x 18 lap (formation lap)

    - Qual Time - @ 4pm - (1 weather slot - Heavy Cloud)
    - Race Time - @ 5pm - (Light cloud /Medium cloud)
    - Time progression - REAL
    - Compulsory pit stop - NO
    - Fuel : OFF
    - TYRE WEAR : Authentic
    - Weather progression : Sync to race
    - Time progression : Real time
    [​IMG]

    OK all .... SPRINT ROUND TIME !
    QUAL : 10 mins as normal
    RACE 1 : 17 laps as normal.
    RACE 2 : 18 laps..... For race 2, the room host will set up with the same regs as race 1, BUT ADD 1 LAP.
    - Cars will line up on the grid as normal, BUT ON THE GREEN LIGHT ALL CARS WILL STOP BEFORE TURN 1 AND LINE UP IN REVERSE ORDER FROM RACE 1.

    - DO NOT FALSE START AS YOU WILL HAVE TO SERVE A DRIVE THROUGH
    - Once in reverse order the lead car will lead the field round at 'approx" 100KPH.
    - Please try to stay within 1 car length of the car in front
    - BEFORE the last turn, the lead car will slow to 80KPH, and will start the race on the exit of 'The Rock" sweeper.
    - NO PASSING or OVERLAP till the start finish line.

    Please make sure you are clear how this will work as its a lot different to our normal round races.

    ROUND 2 ISSUES
    : Well done last week to everyone. Only 2 incidents that were protested, pretty good job from everyone across all 4 divs. Can always be better though. Please remember if you have an incident you wish to protest you must have your protest IN VIA PM, by no later than 12 midnight on the Monday night.


    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

    DIV 4 DRIVERS : ANNE is hosting the sprint round for the first time, so please bare with her as she sets things up, has any possible issues and works through getting everyone in the room. you Will need to save race results, and dont forget your replay ! Please help each other out as you get the season started.

    LAG ISSUES / ROOM RESTARTS :

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 : Is a slippery track, and a few of our drivers have been left chasing the pack after avoidable contact. I can see lap 1 being a nightmare if you all go in too hot, and more importantly, dont give room on the inside..Anything off line does seem particularly slippery .... goal is 0 contact for a race !

    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. There are a couple of spots drivers will have to be aware of cutting. Main spots i have seen the chance to cut have been Turn 3 (fast left kink) and 9-10 (savage esses). Is a tough track to pass on, so you will need to be patient, and ALL drivers will need to give racing room. That INCLUDES the car being passed. If you mess up give the spot back. Guarantee you get through the first 2 laps when the field shakes out, there will be minimal issues.

    CONTACT : Still not as good as it could be guys, everyone needs to be better here...We have lost 1 driver through frustration, which is the last thing i want. We want a strong league with full grids, and clean racing is the most important ingredient in that.

    COMPULSORY PIT STOP : N/A THIS ROUND

    PIT ENTRY / EXIT : N/A THIS ROUND

    BLUE FLAGS : Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. With the 2 classes there is slightly more chance of blue flags coming into play, so you should be aware of the leaders coming up on you, and move out of the way as soon as possible.
