    Props to @Matthyus for sharing the replay for me. As a result, here are the round 1 highlights.
    Obviously I watched the race (most of it) and it seemed that there were some early battles, but really, everyone fell into their own groove and it seemed like a fairly 'lonely' race.

    Short but sweet.

    Round 2: Autodrome Lago Maggiore - West II - 34 laps - 21:00 Sunny - 19/5

    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 AEST. 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 AEST (NO PITSTOPS ALLOWED IN QUALIFYING - if you do pit during qualifying, you must start rear of grid)
    RACE START TIME : 8:30 AEST (once qualifying has finished)

    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 the 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.

    TYRES : You must start on the Tyre you qualify on (NO PITSTOPS ALLOWED DURING QUALIFYING). You must use one set of RACING MEDIUM tyres during the race. (no limit on the amount of RACING SOFT tyres).

    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 into T1.
    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.

    I won't be able to make this week due to not having the car or enough money, I'll try to get it together during the week for next Sunday if there is room.

    Someone did mention that there is a reasonably quick way to earn some Dollarbucks.
    Professional Campaign with the Red Bull X2014, do Circuit da la Sarthe. $230K in 10mins, $350K for a clean race.

    One thing I hate about this game. No reason why these type of car games should have everything locked behind a paywall.

    It isn't a true paywall though. I'll look at that method this week @Matthyus

    i think there is an event with fast road cars at blue moon speedway and you use the xbow at N300 to win the most cash per time frame

    @Hatfield do mediums have to be used in next week's sprint round?

    Well that race was interesting. Qualified 6th after only managing a 1:21. 3 laps into the race and I’m doing 1:20.6. Bizarre.

    Pitted after lap 15, onto mediums. Then pitted lap 20, and started fuelling for the final 14 laps on softs again, and everything crumbled before my eyes. I must have hit the accelerator and I left the pits with 8.5 laps.

    Fuel map 6 basically until the last 3 laps. What a disaster. Ran out of fuel on the line and @deedz_aus took 6th.

    Congrats @emmo46

    Well that will be another race to remember!!
    Qual
    Managed a blinder of a lap with a 19.9 and snagged pole.
    Race
    Got a good start and build up a nice gap, however @Buster_Danis to his credit reeled me in.
    Overtook me when I had a slow exit somewhere and then we battled it out for god knows how many laps until I pit on 16 for my 1 lap of RM.
    Popped back out in 3rd.
    Did my lap, pitted again, fuel and RS back on.
    However @emmo46 and his fuel saving antics, didn't pit until 19 or 20. Once he came out he was only 15s in front. I set about reeling him in and managed to get it down to 3 or 4 secs with 3 or 4 laps left.
    However minor errors on exits cost me a chance to battle for the win.

    Maybe I should have done the 1 stop strat that I had been thinking of doing since 2 weeks ago...since I was in the lead... oh well, I'm still learning what to do when..
    Congrats @emmo46 and @Buster_Danis on your win and podium finishes

    Awesome duel @Matthyus (I think we passed each other 3 or 4 times in that first stint!) & Awesome fuel @emmo46! Well done to both of you. :thumbsup:
