    Pretty stoked to have pole and FL (and possibly 5th outright??) after an, otherwise, average night :cool:
    Also, it was pretty cool to watch the race stream afterwards.. I did not like my cameos, though :roflmao:

    Yahoo, what a race! I was lucky to make the race after a spot of late afternoon karting, and just made it in time. Cheers for waiting for me.

    After a few laps practice I was surprised that Keeden & I were very closely matched on pace. I had hope but once again I thought I would just be settling for 2nd again. Then @MINT_GTR shot me a message asking if there was room... Oh crap!

    First few laps were not good, and Hat/Viper were stealing my slipstream. In a last gasp effort I held back and waited for a car to follow, and managed to position myself perfectly behind Tubby. The lap was nailed, a full lap of slipstream produced a lap time I didn’t think was possible!

    A great start and first lap allowed me to pull away to form a critical gap, and I thus was able so maintain pace whilst saving fuel. Mint got past Keeden and began homing in on me, but I knew as soon as he pitted on lap 13 he was out of contention.

    Keeden wasn’t gaining on me too much after the pit stop but the pressure started to mount as the laps ticked down. 4 seconds became 3, 3 became 4 again, then 4 became 2, then 1... I had to stop thinking of the win and get back to focusing on my braking points. Ultimately he didn’t get within attacking range but it was seriously intense, if I had an off it was over.

    A huge relief to get my first Div 1 win since February 2016 which was a race very similar to this one. Looking forward to the wet finale!

    Well done Jono. I watched the stream. Fantastic drive against 2 of the most fastest drivers in Australia.

    Round 7: Red Bull Ring - 24 laps - 04:45 Rain - Racing Heavy Wet - 15/9

    WELCOME to Season 8!! Thanks to IgnitiON Controls
    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 regulations 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 for 10 mins. Once 10 mins has been reached, finish the lap you are on and park up off track.
    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.
    Be aware when cutting and exiting T1 & 2. Crossing the white line on the right hand side prior to T5 is allowed. Also be aware of the exit of T7-8 and cutting of T8.

    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. Contact will possibly end up with bigger hits in the wet, so watch those braking points!

    TYRES : Racing Heavy Wets

    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!

    WET ROUND : With the track being very wet, please be more cautious than usual with overtaking/defending. Patience is your friend.

    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.

    What a race!

    Qualified terribly to start near the rear.
    @groover33 got the best start jumping a row ahead before T1, then a couple drivers made early errors and @LE_bananajosh was leading!

    He kept that up until @KeedenMcdonald got back through the field and then I was hounding Josh for 2nd.
    That lastest quite a while too and then @Viperzed recovered from an early spin to make it a 3-way battle.

    Unfortunately for me, I binned it myself at T1 exit and thought that it was all over.
    Kept going chasing down @razor4797 and when I caught him, he had caught a redressing @CaptainRisky21 and bananajosh.
    On T1 of the final lap, I got the best run out of the corner and picked up 3 positions by T2. Josh had to save fuel, so the gap wasn't so stressful, and then coming out of the final turn I see a backwards @JonoStan96 going in reverse to cross the line about a sec before me!

    Well done @KeedenMcdonald on the win and the championship !

    commiserations to @LE_bananajosh who ran out of fuel with a corner to go, especially after no major self inflicted offs and fighting with the regular div 1 guys like he had always been here
