    All good mate, probably one of those racing incident type moments. Just a shame that it happened as there was some nice close racing unfolding over the final laps leading upto it.

    Nice pics @ControllaGod, I notice you didn't highlight any of my stickers this time :D. That was a big night in the headset, because the camera loses touch with the headset i can't sit under the fan and it gets a bit steamy up here. Happy to get the pole considering how ridiculously close it was and even happier to get a decent start. I knew turn 5 was going to be a doozy and tried to take it from mid track but someone outbraked themselves and came tearing up the inside. I was lucky to get away with minor bruising and a run through the speed bumps. After that it was maintain the gap and be careful in the pits. @Jim_aka_The_Man's persistence almost wore me down, I was fading faster than my tires on the last couple of laps. I know i keep saying it but its really hard to manage the race without the data, i found myself staring too long in the rear-view too many times to see where jim was catching and how he was fairing. Got through without any major f ups and jim must have too coz he was always there. my fastest lap came after beating the previous fastest lap by .004 which was the lap before, pretty stoked with that.
    Sprint race next woot, love sprint races. Good job rounding out the podium @Dash_Vanguard
    p.s i also don't mind if emmo joins in

    Yep, it was me who was Frequently Sideways this time :p 90 min races are a challenge for me, physically, mentally, AND whilst sitting under a fan. Your setup sounds exhausting! Nice race once again, the championship is looking likely now for you.

    We can potentially do that now using Set by Host.

    With @incey not attending the final two races this race is a championship decider. If Incey gets 27 points only @webnomad can catch him but would need to finish 2nd to incey at this round and then win the final two races with one bonus point.
    @RBRHoges97 , @Dash_Vanguard and @ControllaGod must win all three to take it out.
    With the high stakes this round I'll go back to div 1B to keep out of the way. I should be able to keep in contact with the others in 1B at this track especially in the 2nd race.

    Unfortunately I'm out this round, back for the final two rounds. Good luck to all and will be looking forward to seeing the results on Sunday. Cheers Hoges.

    I don't mind also. There's no way I'll win 3 in a row anyway. Maybe emmo could be useful with keeping incey in check :p

    Assuming I'll get maximum points this round is a big assume. There are lots of scenarios still in play

    It being the sprint round means getting the win will be challenging, but even a podium place will make it a big ask for your pursuers to bridge the gap.

    yeah exactly... one of us back markers could dive bomb you and send you to the back of the grid :p

    I jest, but going on previous rounds I think the top 2-3 guys have things generally tucked away compared to the rest of the rabble.

    I'm hoping to upgrade to a fanatec csl dd shortly, depending how quickly that happens might see me miss the back end of the season as I'll lose compatibility with ps5 :(

    Round 5: 18/06 - Deep Forest Raceway (Sprint Round) - 2x 14 Laps - Custom Weather - (Sunrise - 4x) & (Evening - 4x)

    [​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 7:45pm 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 : 8:15 pm AEST for 10 mins.
    Feel free to run practice laps prior to qualifying, The host will trigger a 'Room Reset' closer to the commencement of Qualifying.

    PITS ARE OPEN DURING QUALIFYING

    RACE START TIME : 8:30 AEST & 9pm AEST (Estimated)

    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 at Turns 4, 8, 9, 11 and 12. Turn 10 is free use and may be used to the full extent.

    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. Be mindful entering the pits that you are to stay hard left to enter pit lane, in the event of an incident, precedence will be given to the car in pit entry. On pit exit, cars exiting the lane are to stay drivers left if they are rejoining in traffic and may rejoin the racing line during T1.

    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 - Deep Forest Raceway

    The old fan favourite, the Sprint Round is upon us, and it may set a few divisions up for the title run! Remember that the Sprint Round is 2 half distances races with the second grid being set based on the previous races results reversed. This usually makes for some spicy racing in the second race as well as a few tears. Please play your part to minimise these tears by respecting ALL drivers on track and playing smart. The sprint round still awards the same amount of points total as any other round, in fact the 2nd race format accounts for only half points compared to race 1, so no need to get shifty with your moves.

    Deep Forest features two gargantuan straights that are easy to make moves at the end of, set up your competitors in the corners prior and maximise the run you get.

    Sorry guys,
    I've decided to pull the pin on the season. I've enjoyed racing with you all but my racing focus has shifted in recent weeks to iRacing and considering the costs involved with it I want to put my energy there.

    Appreciate you having me along for the races I did compete in ! Wish you all the best of luck!

    I'm not going to make it to tonight's race, so someone else will have to host. Sorry for the late notice. See you next week.
