Yep can not break 2.00.00
I'm with you
They where doing low 58s last night. I'm into low 59s so I'm sure there will be 57s at least I'm usually 2 sec off the fast boys
If I drive straight through the last chicane I could do a 57
Lol i did that the other night stu was beside himself thinking I was faster than him
I was pretty relaxed last night when playing , was doing low 2.0s , I do think a 57 is possible just not from me

Was some great racing last week, mixed in with a few issues, here is hoping for a clean and enjoyable round 3.... We have new members @Hoppy and hopefully @Les 317 joining the div 3 and 4 rooms.... I also have a couple of other guys sniffing around looking to join as well... Thanks to @dj2ca for keeping on top of the ladders....big job and he does it well..... Div 1 will have @v8power383 running the D1 room, his ears have stopped bleeding after last week !
ROOM OPEN : Most room captains will 'try' to have rooms open by about 7:50 EDST. 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 : 8:10 EDST
RACE START TIME : 8:20 EDST
TURN 1 LAP 1 : GOAL FOR THIS WEEK ..... MAKE IT THROUGH LAP 1 WITH NO-ONE SPINNING OR MAKING CONTACT ! Give an extra bit of room, and wait till the grid shakes out. Give up a spot if you need to, don't defend like it's the last corner of the last lap ...
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.
There are a couple of spots here where running wide does give an advantage.... Making a mistake or 2 is expected, however doing it continually to gain advantage WILL RESULT in a post race penalty.
- Turn 2 and the entry to Turn 3 (mercedes arena)
- The exit of Turn 4, is a big advantage by running wide....
- The Exit of Turn 11 (Kumho Kurve)
- Turns 15 and 16 (final chicane)
All are pretty self explanatory, however the last chicane will be looked at closely post race...Its very easy to straight line it and gain bulk time.
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.
- Turn 1
- Turn 3
- Turn 8
- The chicane
These are all points i have noticed its easy to run up the backside of someone..be wary if you are in a train of 3 or 4 cars and brake little earlier....Its easy here to make up time using the draft. As i said above, the goal this week is NO CONTACT ON THE FIRST LAP ! If all divisions get through cleanly there will be a case of beer to all drivers courtesy of @dj2ca !
COMPULSORY PIT STOP : N/A
PIT ENTRY / EXIT : N/A
BLUE FLAGS : There has been a few instances where lapped cars are not giving clear passage to the race leaders. Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. You should be aware of the leaders coming up on you, and move out of the way as soon as possible. Best to get off the race line, and with a small lift let them go, so you can continue the fight with those you are running with. Failure to observe blue flags WILL result in a penalty. That said, race leaders cant barge their way past either. Please use your brains here, and give room when you can !
STEWARDS GROUP AND RACE PROTESTS : This season we will again be using the stewards group for racing infringements and protests. The specific Stewards group thread will have all the info in it, regarding rules and regs, and the protest procedure. Please read it and understand how it works...we are still to link in the collated rules and regs.........You have until MIDNIGHT MONDAY night following the race to submit a protest, and MIDNIGHT TUESDAY night for your evidence to be submitted (ie video).
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 ! I believe some people havent been able to save, this may mean you need to clear out some space from your replay library...
Good luck Sunday night
That’s all good managed a high 57 but that was only once anything under low 58s will be a good time for div 1
I would think..
I will concentrate on constancy for this one
good luck guys have fun .............. Thank you Stu .
What if we can't have beer
TC on low saved me about a second and got me down to low 59's on a full tank if anyone is struggling for time like I am
I'm going to try to get online tonight what time should I be looking at
My hot lap video I’m about to edit and upload (cheeky plug) is a 57.8, so I would like to say anything around a high 57 low 58 will be a good time tonight.
Just a quick practice session
How about 7.30pm
time well spent
That is one thing I don't like about this game is the unrealistic crashes.
Linky link...hot lap for Sunday ^^
Have we got a Championship Table updated for RD 2 for Div 1? Or is there still another protest pending??
