Discussion in 'Sunday Night Gran Turismo' started by Hatfield, Apr 17, 2018.
Initial Fuel : Default
Ok so not really any point in practicing with lighter fuel loads then
The only time you would do that is to quickly replicate half tank and fresh tyres and you don't have the time to deplete it normally.
Remember this setting only affects the race. Practice sessions always start with a full tank.
pretty sure in TT mode it replicates low fuel loads.. because i can generally get much quicker times in that than online sessions.
that night race was e!!!
Thats because of stuff like track grip on edge i believe.
I'll definitely be there this week guys, I haven't turned on the race rig in weeks but should be good for the remainder of the season except origin Sunday.
It could help with strategy, if you were getting alien times with light fuel on RM it could be worth an extra stop but with Bathurst pit stops being long anyway it could negate any benefit, on some tracks it's a worthwhile strategy.
The best way to practice is with a lobby set up.
If you want to do low fuel runs, do a couple of quali laps first, that should drain your fuel levels down then go for it. Just remember not to top up fuel when you do a pit stop.
You'll be party chatting again tonight no doubt?
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
I'll be working tonight.
I'm out, refuse to race this e track ever again!
In my younger days I loved the celica. never had the opportunity to own one but my little brother did the 1981 LT2000 fastback... So I thought I would pay tribute in the this seasons retro round to the late Peter "willo" Williamson
By no means exact but I like it and that is all that matters...
Was stoked to find the Lovell springs decal and even found the original Celica badge decal... and the Japanese War flag... well it is a must!!!
CC's n dry are going down a little to good atm... will see how I am at race time....
Power went out. Filthy...
I was wondering what happened
