    Based of RB14 test livery that became possibly the best f1 livery to never be raced. That changes tomorrow night

    Someone deserves a special place in hell for putting the two worst tracks ever back to back.

    Probably the least enjoyable race I’ve had since Big Willow in the Pozzi, but I’m happy I’ve got pace in this car. 2 massive crashes ended my podium chances. Onto next week.

    First the apologies:
    Sorry to @groover33 for your issues with being stuck. We will have to try @Bryan_F as host next week and see if that helps things
    Sorry to EVERYBODY in the room when we had to restart AGAIN because I had the tyres set to RH only (I am an idiot, feel free to tell me by replying to this post!)

    Now then, Thank you to everyone who was able to attend. I had a decent race.
    Pitted lap 1 for Supers but didn't trust my testing and filled up which let @Bryan_F jump me in the pits. I had 2 attempts into T1 on consecutive laps but couldn't get the right line.
    Ultimately I started falling back and being passed, but had a little luck to just keep the car on the road and not hit the chicane of death, so have to be happy with 5th in a field where I probably should be further back.

    Congrats @xlxy90 on getting engaged.

    Well that was unexpected. Probably my most hard fought 3rd place ever.
    After an ok start I found myself battling for 5th with @kipztaah (@JonoStan96 had made a blinding start off the line to overtake myself and kipztaah, you gotta teach me how you did that mate.) On the 2nd lap I had a bad run out of the fast chicane going up the hill. Kipztaah had a great run. So much so I misjudged where he was. He did a perfect pit manuever on me. Sending me into the wall. A bad start already. Not good. I still hadn't decided what strat I was going for, but decided I needed to go for some clean air. I pitted straight away for softs. After most everyone pitted I was down in 10th. The chase was on.

    Slowly but surely my consistency was paying off as others introduced themselves to the chicane of death. (Such a :):):):):) of a corner, I hadn't done a single session in tests without hitting that Basterd.)
    Nearing the end I found myself up in 5th trying to catch @Hatfield. Finally getting close enough to put the pressure on him on lap 20 I think all the sudden we were fighting for podium position as @Noremac had decided to say hello to the reaper chicane. It became 3 way fight to the end. I managed to pip hat into the first corner to taste 3rd. And to my delight norm and hat fought like hell for 4th behind me.
    I managed to pull a small gap on them both. But on lap 22 i let my guard down. I very nearly became friends also with that dick reaper chicane. Putting me off I had a horrible entry into the hard left directly after. Norm and hat are on me. Defend mode engaged

    Defending from norm into the final chicane compromised both of our exits on to the straight. Hat had an amazing exit flying past norm. I defended the inside as hard as I could as hat pushed me as far as he could. We rub coming into the braking zone. I managed to pull my car up and park my ass on the apex, ruining hats better line speed.
    The last two laps I managed to compose myself and put a little gap in as norm and hat fought to the death.

    Coming across the line in 3rd. Absolute nutter of a race. Fantastic racing from @Noremac and @Hatfield. Had a blast with you guys.

    Congrats to @KeedenMcdonald for the win and @Bryan_F for 2nd.
    Congrats to my team mate @xlxy90 on the engagement!!

    Annoyed i couldn't be with you guys, had an awesome start then just died, few mistakes put me in the mixer and i just crumbled. Getting sent in the air by the chicane of no friends without hitting it (hitbox on the renault proving to be JUST a bit wider than the model) put the nail in the coffin on a dysmal 7th

    Was not expecting second after being down to last by the end of the first lap. Undercut and consistency made the difference. I had to take the chicane at 9/10ths to not get killed.

    Thanks for that @KeedenMcdonald - from that I learned how to enter the chicane of death** and come out unscathed and how to get through the esses without hitting the wall of evil on the left.

    I did notice that, you would probably have sooner stopped completely rather than open up that apex for me lol

    Haha might have, but I also wasn't sure if you were going to try to go around me. So I tried to keep my inside line so I wouldn't run wide into you.

    Haha you said it, not me.
    I was very lucky to be put into that position. So fought hard to keep it. If no one had made mistakes in front of me, I'd probably would have only finished 7th or 8th. Everyone is so damn quick. One mistake and the whole field passes you.

    I thoroughly enjoyed you parking your car on the apex. Could have sworn the handbrake was applied as well.

    No handbrake. Just a dash of butt clenching

    DRIVER BRIEFING

    HUGE thanks to PAGNIAN for providing the prize of a new GTtrack Playstation edition valued at over $1000 !
    Remember you must race and complete 4 of the 7 rounds to be eligible for the PAGNIAN prize draw at seasons end.
    All information is here:
    https://raceonoz.com/forums/index.php?threads/x-platform-prize-draw-for-2019-1.3526/

    ROUND 2 :
    Big Willow - 35 laps - 17:30 Fine - 17/2
    [​IMG]

    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. 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.

    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 drivers
    Please be especially careful at the final turn (9). Side by side driving at T9 can cause the outside driver to be spilled wide and it is possible to get reset to track and even lose an entire lap.

    TYRES : You must start on the Racing Hard Tyre. After that, one other set, of other compound tyres is allowed. (no limit on the amount of RH tyres). If you run out of fuel/tyres even after making a pitstop, you can pit a second time, however if you have already used a different set of racing tyres other than Hard, then you would need to change back onto the Hards.

    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 !

    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 or if the room can start early in advance.
