    Started 10th, Was in 4th at the end of lap 1 due to a pileup in front which i only just missed. Hovered around 4th-6th for the majority of the first stint then made a mistake by putting softs on in the stop and that ruined a potential top 5 results finishing in 8th. Drove well but that stop cost me big time, Apart from that had a blast these cars are so fun to drive. See you guys next week.

    yes, he was struggling having done no practice, so I assume he didn't want to risk taking out someone under blue flags since he was already a lap down before parking

    thx changed it.
    I guess I'm so used to it being a certain way, that even though I knew mint got it, I couldn't stop myself typing it in otherwise.

    Also, what an awesome looking grid!

    Came by just to say how friggen cool a full 16 car grid looks with the custom liveries.
    Great photo, great turnout, sounds like great racing too.

    @Captain_Risky_21 again I'm sorry lack of practice/ and mind on fluctuating throttle contributed to that, I braked late to try and keep another car behind me. And the lane changing didn't help either

    All good mate, i was just angry from the start and getting shuffled down to the rear twice in 4 laps annoyed me. All good

    You were actually racing with other mere human drivers.
    You would have more fun starting from last on the grid each week . :laugh:

    Well done last round, opening the season with full grids in 2/3 divisions

    Also thanks again to PAGNIAN for providing the prizes for the last season of the year, 2 x Wheelstand lites valued at $199 each !
    Remember you must race and complete 4 of the 7 rounds to be eligible for the PAGNIAN prize draw at seasons end.

    ROUND 2 :
    Autodrome Lago Maggiore GP - 26 laps - 9:30 Cloudy - 21/10

    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 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. This is especially dangerous in our Group C Monster. The first section of corners is 1st-2nd gear so little taps when already on the limit of rear traction will cause spins. 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.
    T3 and the second left in the esses have tarmac on the outside of the white line and this is allowed to be used with all 4 wheels over the line.
    The corners here to be careful are:
    T4 - both cutting and running wide on exit
    The hairpin - cutting
    The last double right hander - running wide on exit

    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 this 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 driver and enjoy that screaming GrpC engine when it hits those beautiful notes

    TYRES : You must start on the Racing Super Soft Tyre. After that, any Racing Tyre is allowed.

    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.
    Last round we had 3 protests. The one for blue flags should hopefully not occur again now that flag rules are ON, and another which could have been avoided being a protest if the driver was able to check the replay from other viewpoints (his replay didn't work after saving). I see that as a good result on the stewarding side, so keep that respect going!

    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 !

    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 in advance
