    I thought it was going to be a very thin margin that would make the 3 stop work and turned out it probably never would have against the more conservative M/M. I wouldn't have been able to run a one stop medium so that was never an option for me. My only viable option was to thrash the softs and do 24 qually laps. Too many errors and a pit line penalty took away any chance I might have had. 4 sets of smoking softs and a third place wasn't too bad overall. As fezza says, not being able to do strategy on the fly (no race data) is a bit of a bugger too.
    Well done to Controllagod and webnomad on their spots, too good for me. Reckon one more lap and I'd have had you webbie :D. pretty happy with the bonus points though, (the fl was on the low fuel with a new set of softs).
    I'm fond of the the nurb so looking forward to that

    Qualified well enough, but disappointed i fell flat in the strategy department. Thought I was being smart starting on mediums to keep a steady pace and reducing pitstops but turns out softs all night was the answer! I was also under practiced on how much the grip would reduce on worn Mediums after practicing all week on softs only for 24 laps and flunked out pretty early on. Never caught up after the initial drop. Took a gamble and lost!

    99% sure we'll do 1 out lap and 1 hot lap for qually. Set the timer for 15 minutes rather than 10, a lap is around 9-10 minutes long so 15 should be plenty to allow everyone to find space

    Could add some more spice to it by doing a reverse grid staggered start, people go out first out of the pits based on last week's results and then giving 5-10 seconds between each one HAHA
    I envision absolute chaos for everyone involved LOL

    (I'm joking, I definitely don't want to be chased by faster guys LOL)

    We did that in a community series once, although not in reverse order. Everyone out at 10sec intervals for a 1 out, 1 flyer quali.

    Just my $0.02 but this scenario can and does happen in real life too, so I think this just has to be a risk.

    The alternatives are that the room is set to have constant weather, or weather only at predefined time slots, in which case everyone will be on exactly the same strategy... which removes the point of having a random weather setting.

    Round 2: 21/05 - Nurburgring 24h - 5 Laps - Custom Weather - Afternoon - 20x

    [​IMG]
    WELCOME to Season 5 for Gran Turismo 7!!
    As always please take a couple minutes to read the following so you have an understanding of what is expected on race night.
    If you have any questions, or want clarification on any of the rules or regulations please ask!

    ROOM OPEN:
    Room captains may have practice rooms open beforehand but should have the official room up by 7:55pm AEST. Please be on time, or let the room captain or div thread know 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.

    SIGHT ISSUES:
    Before qualifying, exit to lobby and spend 30 seconds in spectate mode, scroll through the list of drivers on track and make sure that you can see their car. If you can't see somebody (and they are confirmed as being on track), exit the lobby, re-join, and check again. Type the number of cars you can see in the lobby chat and cross check with other drivers to ensure clarity.

    QUALIFYING : 8:10 pm AEST for 15 mins.
    Feel free to run practice laps prior to qualifying, The host will trigger a 'Room Reset' closer to the commencement of Qualifying.
    Being a longer lap than usual, Nurburgring will include a 15 minute session with drivers only having time for one flying lap. Please keep this in mind when spacing yourself out on track, there is no need for drivers to be even near eachother during a qualifying session around the Nordschleiffe!

    PITS ARE OPEN DURING QUALIFYING

    RACE START TIME : 8:10 AEDT

    LAG ISSUES / ROOM RESTARTS:
    This is up to the room host/captains. If there is a Disconnection (or cars stuck on grid) at race start, it is sporting to try to get them back in, which may mean a new room to be set up. I would suggest only having 1 restart if required due to DSC, due to having to set up the room from scratch and also having to set timed laps in order to set the grid. Please be as reasonable as you can with this....

    TURN 1 LAP 1:
    The old saying goes, you can’t win the race on lap 1, but you can definitely lose it. Please be mindful of other drivers on lap 1 coming into turn 1, and for that matter, the entire race. It can be very demoralizing to hot lap on your own for 45 minutes as I'm sure many of you are aware.

    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. If you do make a mistake and have to run outside the limits, be aware that you are not allowed to gain any advantage, position or time wise. Track Limits protests may be launched by any active driver in the race.


    Track Limits will be monitored generally across the entire circuit

    CONTACT:
    Is to be avoided at all times..... If you make contact with someone and gain an advantage, YOU ARE EXPECTED to give the spot back. Occasionally, Gran Turismo track limits may teleport a disadvantaged driver backwards on circuit to ‘reset’ them, if this occurs at the hand of another driver, IT IS EXPECTED that the driver at fault will wait and redress the position.
    Side by side 'rubbing' is racing is allowed and promoted within reason, but all drivers are expected to give racing room. For clarity surrounding racing room, please feel free to PM @Viperzed
    Show each other RESPECT! It is difficult enough to drive the car at the limit on your own, without someone squeezing you within a millimeter of the grass.
    So be patient and show respect to your fellow drivers.
    If you are redressing contact, please do so out of the way of other cars, off the racing line, or if there isn't much room, off track.

    PIT ENTRY/EXIT LINES:
    Pit Line Penalties are ON so you will be penalised in game if you cut any part of the entry or exit lines. Please be aware that the car will be often be pulled towards drivers left when you are first given control after exiting the pits, practice this to avoid cutting the line and/or impeding any drivers on circuit.

    BLUE FLAGS:
    Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. Failure to observe blue flags WILL result in a penalty

    STEWARDS GROUP AND RACE PROTESTS:
    This season, the Head Steward will be @Viperzed. If you have reason to protest, please SAVE YOUR REPLAY, and then let him 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. Stewards may ask for video evidence from both drivers or room captains 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!

    PARKING UP:
    If you are unable to continue to race, please enter the pits and leave your game paused without selecting tyres so that your car stays parked in the pits. Parking up off track activates yellow flags in the sector, and even though penalties are off, we have reports of penalties occurring for passes happening near the parked car. Quitting off track results in a sometimes race ending lag spike and may be punished in extreme scenarios.

    ATTENDANCE:
    Could all drivers please inform Room Captains or make a post on the division thread if they do not intend on racing on Sunday night, Room Captains/ Lobby Hosts are advised not to wait for anyone who has not communicated their intentions. If you do not post in your room thread or psn chat that you cannot attend, a spot may not be held for you for the following weeks race.

    TRACK SPECIFIC - Nurburgring 24H

    How fitting that we run the Nurb24H round on the same weekend as the real life race itself! I encourage you all to tune in at some stage on the weekend to watch some of the greatest GT drivers in the world do battle for 24 Hours on one of the greatest circuits.

    Real life aside, "The Ring" is a daunting piece of tarmac that can easily catch out even the most experienced of drivers. For 25km you will navigate twisting turns through the German hillside, at times, the easiest of bends, leading to some of the trickiest corners. Ensure you do your homework this round and memorise what you can of the 25 378m layout, it will bite you otherwise.

    Keep in mind that it is still on random weather, and we have a night cycle for this round! Keep a keen eye on your radar and trust your instincts when it comes to the downpours. I will allow that at Room Captain's discresion, Any freak weather events that affect the ENTIRE FIELD, may result in a Red Flag with the restart occuring in order of the last sector completed by the ENTIRE FIELD.

    Looking forward to the race!
    Should have my cockpit set up better by tonight.
    Did a few laps last night and I gotta say, this is going to be an interesting race. I'm not super familiar with the 'Ring and haven't raced here much so racing at night etc certainly brings it's challenges!
