    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.

    FALSE START CHECK : Please note that the start type has been changed to 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.

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

    TYRES : You can use any of the sports tyre compounds at any time

    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 down 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 !

    THE DIRT : Be very careful of the dirt. 1 tyre off can cause you major headaches. Be especially careful on the last corner not to run into the pits from off track or you risk being reset and losing a lap.

    Good race from me since I didn't run off track!

    Qualified bottom half but picked up places during the race to come 5th
    @Captain_Risky_21 & @apex2691 made contact at the final corner
    @razor4797 also went off later after I had gotten past a few laps before.
    Could not catch @Noremac though.

    Well done @KeedenMcdonald on the win

    Our Manufacturers Cup race here was good practice. Our battle reminded me why I'm in ROOZ in the first place. Epic.

    Well done to the podium finishers.

    Apologies on behalf of my bloody internet for causing havoc for me during that race, I know there were a lot of bumps and taps that may or may not have been lag induced (hard to tell due to how much the cars were jumping around).
    Found it very difficult to follow other cars because of this too, both distracting and worried about hitting them.

    Fingers crossed it won’t ever be that bad again

    I sucked. My reward for the lack of practice. 20 laps before the race might not be enough on a track like this. See you all next week.

    As it was my wheel turned off 3 times :mad: (I was running on 270 degrees afterwards) and I would not of been able to race with those up front anyway, so it didn't matter in the end.
    Alas it will be a short lived return, as I need a new wheel to race.
    Well done to Beau, Knuckles and Bryan on the podium. :thumbsup:

    You're all banned from saying that. I've trademarked it.

    well what an interesting final round.
    qualified in 4th and was going well into 2nd after turn 1.
    had some contact on the inside at turn 3 (tight left) which meant my run was compromised.
    kept making little errors which allowed passes to happen and ended up last, but it was an extremely close train from around 3rd to last
    Then coming to the end of the bridge I see all cars in front of me in the wall... this continues for half a lap as I take the lead
    and then get disconnected... lol
    oh well, it was fun while it lasted

    Disappointing way to end. Sat night practice had good speed and consistency. Sunday morning had pedal problems, swapped pedals. Nowhere. Swapped back still nowhere. Pace was left out on track thou, on all the grass and barriers. Should be my best overall result to date at rooz so cant complain to much
