    Gutted with that result. Managed to convince myself that a one stop was the way to go, starting on hards and switching to mediums at halfway, F%@k£#g Viperzed, what a f¥£k!ng idiot. Despite running mid 38s in quail all week long I went out and set an uncompetitive lap on hards before putting around aimlessly for 50 minutes trying to pull off a strategy that couldn't add 1 and 2. Ridiculous lol. Eyes forward to Autopolis and please, can someone remind me not to trust my gut feeling? :x3:

    It looked like a pretty solid drive from what I saw, mate! I know what it's like to drive with a sore back too.

    I was also pretty shocked to qualify where I did, and even more shocked to be running where I was for the first couple of laps. I was hoping, with the amount of practice I'd been able to do, and, more so, the strength of our field, that I might be able to fight for a top 10 finish. Couldn't believe it when I was running 6th and holding a decent pace with Norm in 5th.

    I had completely lost my upshift paddle when I tried to put some laps in on Friday and spent the weekend trying to find a way to patch it enough to get me through until I can get it repaired. My last attempt was super glue and that killed the switch altogether :laugh:
    I remapped my upshift to my R3 button and it worked a treat until lap 2 or 3 where it would either not shift at all or it would double shift and bog down. I pulled over after I'd nearly ruined Groover's race and then by lap 7 I think I'd pressed it too hard one too many times and it completely packed it in.

    I hate quitting mid-race, and I apologize for bailing, but I think it was in everybody's best interest for me to get off the track :whistling:

    I didn't even do a qualifying lap. I was just crusing burning fuel and saving tires for a lighter run. Next thing I seen everyone stopping at the 5 minute mark, just as I was about to go for it. So I just pulled over with a light car fresh tires and a full tank of boost. I though maybe I missed a memo about qaully and didn't want to set a lap incase the positions were final. I most likely would not have noticed boost was turned on anyways in the last 5 min lol. I am assuming everyone just used there boost and didn't bother with the last few minutes. I have taken off right were I left last season:roflmao:
    Besides my routine comedy of errors it was a really fun race. Well done top 3

    actually, as written in the briefing, and the OP, it is 5 MINS qualifying... lol
    also, there is no boost in practice mode which we run qualifying in...

    Pleasantly surprised is the description I would give for that season opener.
    I was very sceptical with the car/track/wear combinations, but I’m happy to have been proven wrong (at least for round 1 anyway lol).

    Shocked to have put it on the front row with @KeedenMcdonald and we diced for the first half of the lap, but that was really all the chance I got for the lead.
    @MINT_GTR had a few cracks and @JonoStan96 joined in on the action too.
    Unfortunately I wasn’t too kind on the tyres and I struggled on worn tyres, and this is ultimately where I lost out to Jono in the long run.
    Highlight of the race was a double overtake on @Noremac and @Viperzed into T1, shame it wasn’t picked up on the stream.

    P3 was the final result, any podium is a good race when you look at the contenders here.
    Catch you fellas next week :)

    Round 2: Autopolis - 60 mins - 09:00 - 16/2
    ^RS, RM & RH (ALL mandatory), 8x Tyre, 2x Fuel
    [​IMG]

    WELCOME to Season 10!!
    As always please take 2 mins 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 : 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.
    QUALIFYING : 8:20 AEDT for 5 mins. Once 5 mins has been reached, finish the lap you are on and park up off track. THE PITS ARE CLOSED DURING QUALIFYING AND YOU MUST START ON YOUR QUALIFYING TYRE
    RACE START TIME : 8:25 AEDT (once qualifying has finished)

    LAG ISSUES / ROOM RESTARTS : This is up to the room host. 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 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....
    SIGHT ISSUES: Ensure that you can see everyone on track. After 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. It can also be done pre-qualifying to save time if there is no chance of latecomers.

    FALSE START CHECK : Please note that the start type is Grid Start with False Start Check
    Please practice this so you know what to expect. Simply, you hold the brakes on until the lights go from all lit, to none lit

    TURN 1 LAP 1 : This has the potential to ruin someones night if we don't use our heads! Should be everyone's goal to get through the first phase with ZERO contact. Give room and run in your 'lane' till you have space to run the normal race line. If your unassisted tap causes someone to spin, you need to redress.

    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.
    Please be careful when cutting T19.

    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.
    If you bump someone and they end up off track or teleport back to the corner entry, you must wait for them to rejoin and get back up to speed.
    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.

    TYRES : Racing Softs, Mediums and Hards (ALL COMPOUNDS ARE MANDATORY, NONE MAY BE MIXED ie having different compound on front or rear)

    PIT ENTRY : Drivers MUST make an attempt to use the pit entry / exit lines. Be careful of the entry chicane
    PIT EXIT :
    Please use the pit exit lane and be aware of cars approaching down the straight.
    NOTE: Pitting is COMPULSORY

    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 stewards will be will be @Hatfield @JonoStan96 @Viperzed & @emmo46. 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!

    PARTY CHAT : With the new party chat feature able to hold up to 16 participants, each division will have an open party chat for those that wish to use it. We recommend this especially to new drivers as they may ask questions about how the night is run or to clarify anything they are not confident on.

    OVERTAKE BUTTON : This seasons car has an overtake button. Please ensure you map this button to your device. Also be aware using the button, increases the cars fuel usage at the time, so plan accordingly.

    FINAL NOTE: Could all drivers please confirm their attendance for this Sunday by 'liking' this post in your division. If you are unable to attend, please post in reply as much in your division. This way we can figure out our reserves or if the room can start early in advance.

    I'm likely to miss this week's race, guys. I found a hernia on Monday night and haven't been feeling the best this week.
    Been too distracted to do anything about my shifter issue also, so I think it's best if I sit at least this one out
