    Another perfect round last week with no protests again despite some unredressed incidents. Please make sure to redress when required in future.

    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 4 :
    Suzuka Circuit - 25 laps - 14:30 Fine - 4/11 (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.

    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 two corners can be problematic here. Luckily there is run-off but be mindful of the grass strip separating the circuit from the run-off. 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.
    Be especially careful not to cut over the limits of T8-9 & T15-17.

    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 again had 0 protests which is what we want to see, so please keep up the good respect!

    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 !

    RETRO ROUND: Please post your retro round liveries for all to see, and it may end up on the news/facebook page!

    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

    There's no point protesting an incident when you end up spinning out on your own trying to come back through and end up last :laugh:

    @Hatfield My bosses gone away on holidays for 3 weeks, and the people that were going to mind his dog and look after his house had to pull out, so I’ve taken over duties with a weeks notice. I’ve got my console here but haven’t got my sim I’ll be back at my house again 3 weeks from today. Which means I’ll prob make final 2 rounds.

    Unlucky @KeedenMcdonald for the DC.
    I’m absolutely gutted with my performance.
    My pace was great, just couldn’t keep the car on the road.
    Worked out I lost 30+ seconds in spins and going off the track.
    If not for that I would have been battling Hatfield for 2nd.
    7th place stings when I know a podium was well within reach.
    Disappointed but I’ll be back next week, see you guys then

    My best result in div 1. thx for dsc @KeedenMcdonald ;) But seriously, bad luck.

    Well done @MINT_GTR to win by 50secs....

    Was ecstatic to finish 2nd! Only had one off at T1, but kept away from the sand and rejoined before @razor4797 could get passed.
    @Bryan_F was closing fast, but an error opened up the gap again at the end.

    I had a good race, lost 20 seconds in spins but didn't get lapped so am well pleased. I was holding off Russell for 7th around the 18 19 lap mark but missed the turn in to the spoon and gave up 3 spots and 12 seconds. I had some battles early in the race as well so it was just a lonely run at the back for a change.

    Thank you to everyone for making the stewards job easy, with zero protests third week running.

    Also thanks again to PAGNIAN for providing the prizes for the last season of the year, 2 x Wheelstand lites valued at $199 each !

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.
    We have many places at Le Mans where track limits need to be respected. Dunlop Curve on the inside, Dunlop chicane, the right at the esses, Tertre Rouge, the chicanes on the back straight, Mulsanne corner, Corvette curves, and the Ford chicanes!!

    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.

    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. If you run into the pits too quickly, and cut the entry to the pits, the game can make you 'drive through' without stopping, so please practice clean entries.
    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

    ENDURANCE ROUND: This race will be double the length we run for the other rounds, so concentration and consistency is key especially as the race rolls on. Also, stay hydrated haha
