    I managed a PB to secure 6th on the grid, well behind the pole time. The first lap went well where I managed to pick my way through to third and the a couple of laps later I was up to second after a fabulous battle with @incey. From there I opened a bit of a gap back to third but @UrsineSaturn9 was powering away ahead. I was feeling confident of a 2nd place or at least a podium at that stage. But then I ran wide on the uphill left hander in the final sector, speared across the road and sideswiped the fence on the left and the pack was now on my tail. I kept them at bay and after all the stops was still looking ok for a podium when I did it again at the same corner losing a few places this time. A few laps later I copped a blunty that put me into the fence at the hairpin in the final sector with major damage. By now I was well back and quite disgusted. A purple sector a few laps later in secror 1 lulled me into running wide at the next corner and crashing again. I was quitte fed up by this time and just cruised home in last place. Congratulations to @UrsineSaturn9 on the trifecta of wins and a problable season win.

    Maybe you could run the Father's Day Bash at Bathurst on RH, RM, or RS to promote better handling and tighter racing with less risk. It could/would also be a test for the future, and has no impact on the season.
    That night I did a few laps with you around Bathurst on the SS, the little Mazda was an absolute handful. It was great fun hot lapping, but probably not conducive to good racing at Bathurst.

    I wont do it for this Sundays night only due to the fact that would be a rather large change up and a few of us have been hitting the track with this seasons regs - would be a bit jarring I would think personally, and already people have signed up as to what I had posted. We have been having some quite enjoyable racing with close proximity - and I'm sure once everyone has had a good practice as we do for normal Sunday night races, I could see it going quite well :)

    Though, in saying that, I wouldn't mind running a community event for something like this in between seasons on a Sunday night. We can work together to come up with something quite cool I'm sure.

    I really like this car but imo the last thing it needs is more grip. Less power and less grip and this is a really fun car to drive. Put RH on it even at the current power and it's just on rails, whereas at standard power on SH it has some personality and better balance

    i let you through so i could save some fuel in your draft but you buggered off and left me. A couple of little errors and i lost another two spots. Not a great night for me overall after surprising with my first 2.09 during qually. Sorry for the awkward pit exit @Matthyus , i had no clue you were there as i was still on my fuel screen instead of the radar, glad you got out of that one unscathed.
    Congrats @UrsineSaturn9 on a dominating hat trick to take the season. Couldn't get anywhere near you.

    Hahaha, brilliant! How did you know I had that music playing in the background? Looks like there were some great battles through the field, but it was kinda nice not to feature in them!

    its not simple, but there is a process to add the music.
    You need to add the song you want to a usb so that you can 'Add Music' from Share Factory.

    Round 7: Laguna Seca - 29 Laps - 7:30 - 13/9 - Mazda Retro Round
    [​IMG]

    WELCOME to Season 12!!
    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 AEST. 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 AEST for 10 mins. If a driver joins while qualifying mode is active, room captains will need to grab a quick photo of qualifying results, cancel the race and then set grid by host.
    In practice mode, once 10 mins has been reached, finish the lap you are on and park up off track.
    During qualifying PITS ARE CLOSED

    RACE START TIME : 8:30 AEST (once qualifying has finished)

    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 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. 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.

    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 not to cut into the pitlane from the main straight through T1. Watch the outside entry into T2. After T6 on the run up to 7, 2 wheels on the line running up the hill on the inside.

    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.
    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.

    TYRES : Sports Mediums (mandatory) & Sports Softs

    PIT ENTRY : Pit entry lines are to be followed at ALL TIMES. 4 wheels across the white lines the determine Pit Entry will be seen as a violation of track limits and you will be subject to a penalty depending on severity and quantity of cuts.
    PIT EXIT : You are required to use the pit exit lane, Penalties will be adjudicated in similar fashion to Pit Entry. Please be aware of cars approaching out of T2.
    NOTE: Pitting is NOT 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 @JonoStan96 @Viperzed & @emmo46. If you have reason to protest, please SAVE YOUR REPLAY, and then let them 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 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!

    PARKING UP : If you are unable to continue to race, please enter the pits and leave your game paused without selecting tyres (or no 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.

    MAZDA RETRO ROUND : The final round of this season is the Mazda Retro Round. Laguna Seca used to have Mazda sponsorship, so let's see your best classic Mazda Retro Liveries! (of course this is not mandatory, just a bit of fun and all appropriate liveries are fine to run)

    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.
    (ALSO IF YOU KNOW YOU CANNOT ATTEND, PLEASE POST SAYING SO, SO THAT RESERVES CAN BE ORGANISED IN ADVANCE)
