@Hatfield sprint round tyres?
depends if mediums make the distance i guess
Make it mediums only. We did some testing this afternoon. If you save tyres you can make it, if you go balls deep, you'll be slow towards the end. It would make for some interesting racing.
Make it as per normal rounds. Then its a case of wether or not you can make up the ~10-15s for a pit by using meds over a hards 1 stop.
I can easily go the distance on mediums but have to miss that round
I know this is probably a slim chance and don't want to inconvenience other peeps in different time zones. But would it be possible to start the race this sunday 30min later? I just realised I wont be back from work in time for race start. haha. Am happy to start from the back if it does change, but so long as 'EVERYONE' agrees to delay the start. As I said, I don't want to inconvenience others. It's all good, if it doesn't change. Just thought I'd put it out there.
FYI, I will also be missing the following 2 rounds as I'll be in Japan.
I'm unfazed by the late start. It will still be an earlier than round 1
haha yea. it was a tad late.
Personally I can't do the later start and I'm expected room issues again so I think it will be late anyway but if everyone else wants to start late I'm happy to miss the race. If we can get it sorted soon that would be great so I won't bother doing any more practice.
All good @grassies . Just keep it as is normal. If the race somehow gets delayed like last week, i'l jump on if thats the case. No biggie.
I’m up at 5 every morning. So early race start better. If you were going to miss just one race I’d consider. But as you state your missing next 2 after this round. It seems pointless. But let’s discuss further if anyone thinks it’s a point.
Lastly I’d hate to see grassies quit.
ROUND 2 : Kyoto Driving Park Yamagiwa - 30 laps - 18:00 Sunny
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 regs 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
RACE START TIME : 8:30 AEDT
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....
TURN 1 LAP 1 : This has the potential to ruin someones night if we dont use our heads ! Should be everyone's goal to get through the first lap with ZERO contact. Give room and run in your 'lane' till you have space to run the normal race line.
The start at Yamagiwa will be very packed through the sweeping left handed T1 and the following esses up the hill. Make sure to leave enough room if still side by side with someone at the esses. If someone ends up in the wall, the chain reaction will cause major headaches
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. Be careful with the tighter esses after the downhill and before the final turn. If you do make a mistake and have to run outside the limits, be aware that you are not allowed to gain any advantage.
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.
COMPULSORY TYRE : You can start on either RH or RM tyres. But MUST at least use RH during the race at some point.
PIT ENTRY : Drivers MUST make an attempt to use the pit entry / exit lines.
PIT EXIT : Please use the pit exit lane and be aware of cars approaching on the straight.
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 @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 !
Yea. All is good. Thought i'd take a chance and ask. . As i said, only if it didnt inconvenience anyone.
I'll js concentrate on FIA Nations Cup for now. Current #1 in Aus, but not 4 long! This Nik Makozi guy, is fast af. lol
and good luck with your continued challenge in the Nations Cup and hope you retain your Current #1 status
And please tell me how you ended up in Div 2?
maybe he should be bumped up to div 1.
Everybody get online well before the start so we can sort out everybody's computerner issue. Practice start for everybody seeing one another if we have to.
PS probably gonna miss tonight im watching a replay of the wedding.
Bloody wedding lol
May I also suggest in light of the issues we are having, that everyone screenshots their best time rather than quali position. It makes setting the grid a whole lot easier
Pending any restart issues, i may be on by 835 840. Will just jump on when i get home and see if i make it in time lol.
