Discussion in 'Sunday Night Gran Turismo' started by Hatfield, Apr 17, 2018.
Wife caught me. Scored on inters thou. Wasnt worth it
you gotta try full wets
Was just waiting for you to take this to the next level
Going to be interesting this week. From such a wide track to single file pretty much everywhere...
Does anyone have the images of race results showing race tim3s for each race? @Bluemoon @NAACS ????
With the next round being “retro” what’s the difference, just so I know for practice
nothing except to see what kind of retro liveries everyone can come up with
Yes i will get them now, if the room host had indicated he hadnt done them i coulda done sooner for you @emmo46
Result race 1
Race 2 result
ROUND 4 : Mount Panorama - 23 laps - 15:30 Sunny RETRO ROUND
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....
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.
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 grid at Bathurst is packed tight. Make sure to leave enough room if still side by side with someone through turn 1 and up mountain straight. 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. 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 up mountain 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 !
I can't wait to see all those retro liveries!
Actual driver briefing
So does pit exit mean you can not cross the solid white line?
I was going to question this to, cause the pit exit auto drive stops and crosses the line unless you steer left.
Yeah mate and doesn't it turn hard left if you're not cautious. Should make for some interesting viewing post race. Lol
if you don't get on the gas straight away you can normally get out of pit lane in one piece without eating wall.
best video on youtube
don't over complicate it guys.
Just don't wipe out someone when you are released from the pits. I am not going to go through a replay and penalise everyone who cuts the line slightly.
This is the answer I was anticipating
