    With a late re entry into this weeks race wasnt expecting much. Practice got into low 54s couldnt break into them for quali. Started 5th. Good start untill had a brain fart going into hairpin and tagged holden on lap 2 or 3, sorry again. (My first mistake in a GT league race that has affected someone else, my old team mate too). Redressed and was plum last. Picked a few off every now and then. Consistantly in the low 54s saw me not having to pit at full power the whole race. 16sec behind the leader at finish. 16 sec lost redressing. What ifs. Congrats to bryan and podium. Cya all next week happy motoring

    I didn’t pit but I had to manage fuel and for a few laps ran level 3 fuel settings. Crossed the line with 0.1L left.

    After talking bout fuel last night i ran two ten lap stints this morning. one with last nights set up and one with more aggressive, closer to apexes. Forgot the overall time of both but i had 2.1 laps more of fuel left. Maybe GT got fuel burn spot on for sport.

    Too much fuel and a spin late in the race. I will always find a way to stuff it up

    DRIVER BRIEFING FOR ROUND 3
    [​IMG]
    R3.
    Kyoto Yamagiwa Reverse - 13 x2 laps - 1900 Sunny - 19/11 (Sprint Round)
    Tuning: Allowed
    Wear : x1
    Tyre Regs : RH
    Fuel Depletion : x1
    Initial Fuel : Default
    Qualifying regs : Open
    Start Time : Qualifying 8:20 AEDT Race Start 8:30 AEDT


    [​IMG]

    Was some great racing last week, mixed in with a few issues, here is hoping for a clean and enjoyable round 3.... Thanks to @emmo46 for keeping on top of the ladders....big job and he does it well.

    ROOM OPEN : Most room captains will 'try' to have rooms open by about 7:50 AEDT. 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.

    TURN 1 LAP 1 : GOAL FOR THIS WEEK ..... MAKE IT THROUGH LAP 1 WITH NO-ONE SPINNING OR MAKING CONTACT ! Give an extra bit of room, and wait till the grid shakes out. Give up a spot if you need to, don't defend like it's the last corner of the last lap ... ;)

    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 here where running wide does give an advantage.... Making a mistake or 2 is expected, however doing it continually to gain advantage WILL RESULT in a post race penalty.

    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.

    PIT ENTRY / EXIT
    : N/A

    BLUE FLAGS :
    Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. 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. Failure to observe blue flags WILL result in a penalty. That said, race leaders cant barge their way past either. Please use your brains here, and give room when you can !

    STEWARDS GROUP AND RACE PROTESTS : This season we will again be using the stewards group for racing infringements and protests. The specific Stewards group thread will have all the info in it, regarding rules and regs, and the protest procedure. Please read it and understand how it works...we are still to link in the collated rules and regs.........You have until MIDNIGHT MONDAY night following the race to submit a protest, and MIDNIGHT TUESDAY night for your evidence to be submitted (ie video).
    http://www.raceonoz.com/forums/index.php?threads/stewards-group-official-thread.2593/

    SAVE YOUR REPLAY : If the room host can ask all drivers to save their replay would be good before exiting the room....

    Good luck Sunday night

    What a tuff night of racing. I just seemed to make the car worse and got slower with every parctice session. Race1 started on pole but couldn't settle and was over driving the crap out of the car and track all while felling the relentless pressure of knuckles. We swapped places once or twice in the first few laps until i hit the wall on the exit of the long right hander. Giving knuckles and motors a run on me. I found it extremely hard to get by motors! Every time I had a chance I got it wrong and ended up losing ground, only to catch up and try again. But motors driving was enough to hang on to 2nd. Knuckles settled in and started pulling away and owned race1. Race 2 seen me come into contact with knuckles on lap1 causing him to hit the wall and spin, surly costing him the round. I'm really sorry about that. I thought I was away and couldn't believe on the replay how fast you were out wide. Though I still couldn't see you and I did try and leave room just incase. But It could of been avoided. I redressed and we both were a mile away from the field. But did our best to catch up to the pack and start making our way through. A very scrappy start to gtsport Iv had. #sorrykuckles!

    All good. Had a good result still i think. Found a little pace with lightning. Must be the red paint. First race was hectic at the start. I knew i had to get in front from those few practice runs we had earlier. Race 2, was just flat out picking up what we could.

    Horrible.... Couldn't get any pace no matter what I did, was on for a reasonable reverse grid finish till the turn 1 incident, must be punishment for being slow, no point going to the stewards as that person will still finish miles ahead of us. Bring on round 4
