Round 3: Bluemoon Bay Infield B - 2 x 26 laps - 10:30 sunny
WELCOME to Season 9!! Thanks to Selby Acoustics
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 AEDT for 10 mins. Once 10 mins has been reached, finish the lap you are on and park up off track. THE PITS ARE CLOSED DURING QUALIFYING
RACE START TIME : 8:30 AEDT (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.
SPRINT ROUND : This round is the sprint round which has 2 shorter races. The grid for race 1 is determined by qualifying, but the second race is reverse grid based on the results from race 1. The round is scored by calculating the points that would be scored in race 1, plus half the points that would be scored in race 2. The total score is then used to order the drivers from first to last, and round points are given in order. (Fastest lap is added at the end)
In the reverse grid race, if you are one of the faster guys coming through the pack, it is up to you to make your passes cleanly.
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.
You are allowed to cut T4.
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 : Racing Softs ONLY
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!
PARTY CHAT : With the new party chat feature able to hold up to 16 participants, each division will have an open party chat for those that wish to use it. We recommend this especially to new drivers as they may ask questions about how the night is run or to clarify anything they are not confident on.
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.
Spa any one interested from our div
If only had someone I could partner up with to do this... because I'd be keen! Alas, it wont happen. I wouldn't be able to do 3 hours non stop by myself lol
I have 2 times
You are allowed to cut T4.

@Aza2672 qualifying has less than the race...
If you have guys turning up late, just use practice mode for 10mins to do qualifying to avoid restarting
Are you sure that's qualifying? It's showing race results at Sardegna.
I think he's chosen the wrong picture - there was more in the field, and that's a race result.
Yeah it's all good wrong image I'll post the right one now my bad
Here's QUALIFYING RESULTS
Unsure how it all went behind me this week unfortunately... First race, qualified pole with Cagme and Sooby_Scott in behind me, the first few laps were a bit hectic with a decent amount of pressure there from everyone. Once Cagme and I pulled ahead of the 3rd place, we took off with some slip streaming and VERY tight racing. After many position changes between himself and I, he had the last few laps in front, taking the win by 0.2 seconds.
Race 2 was a bit hectic starting near the back of the grid, felt like I was dancing through everyone in those first couple of laps ensuring that I didn't tag anyone on the way through. Had a good battle with Webnomad for a bit, but managed to snag first position and pull away a bit - unsure what happened, potentially some battling behind me, but once I got out of the slip stream I got ahead and winning by a decent margin.
Going to be a bit different next week in the wet! Bring on RBR. Cheers for the race lads.
