    if you are in a party chat, it is kind of accepted you want to hear people talking. Unless it is an official party chat for the room but with 16 drivers that isn't normally how things are run (in gt sport)

    With what was mentioned in party chat post race 'someone still had their mic open during the race', indicates that there seems to be a guideline surrounding what is the preferred status of each players mic during a race.
    I'm not trying to make a mountain out of something as trival as this, but considering that we have extensive documents surrounding etiquette I am just trying to clarify a point. Thank you for your understanding.

    yeah no worries. IMO if I were in a party pre-race, I would leave it during to avoid anyone's mic being left on (and I was in a party pre-race and did leave it lol) just the way I do things I guess

    It's that action or hidden expectation that I'm just trying to discover and help other new members out so that they don't have the same experience.

    I've checked with pat and we are now on the same level. All good on the front. Cheers for the understanding and time.

    Who's up for some practice tonight?
    Didn't get a chance to put in some laps last night, so keen to make up for it later.

    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

    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

    Has anyone got time in practising Kyoto II? I got 1:38.5 after mondays efforts and 1:37.6 something after last night - though adding up my best sectors i have 1:36.7x.

    My q time last race put me near bottom of pack, how much time am I chasing this race I wonder?

    A google/ youtube search for Kyoto II etc doesn't seem to yield many laps to learn from (some are examples of horrible racing!), how do I find the top racers videos?

    First practice I've had on this track last night had my average times towards the end around low 1:37s with a best in the 1:36s somewhere.
    I feel there's quite a bit more time still to gain, and it's early days so hoping to bring it down some over the next few nights to average closer to mid 1:36s.
    Don't really care much for one off fastest laps, rather consistently fast average for good race pace.

    I've been away for two days so tonight is first practice, I'll be putting the @CAB77's advice into play.

    When I settle into a groove and not pushing hard, I can get high 1:38 all day, and can get low 1:38 when things start to go nicely. Trying to be more consistant rather than pushing hard has seen me not get better than high 1:37 in my last couple of practise sessions.

    The chicane and the last long bend really nail me for consistancy, easy to lose the best part of a whole second on each of thoses corners if you include time lost on the straight after it - so I feel the need to push, and come unstuck there more often.

    I guess I should start practising with racers, not just time trial ghost...otherwise it will all be different come sunday...
