This season we will be piloting the beastly 'Vette around US tracks, a tour of the US, sim racing style. We are kicking this season off on Monday the 30th of July. Most of the season is sorted with only a few pieces yet to fall into place. There has been a last minute opportunity to have an 8 round season, so given "More racing is bad" is a phrase no-one said ever, we will look at squeezing in the extra race but may need to stretch the definition of USA as quality mod tracks with enough pits are rare. As always the Raceonoz servers will be up for practice and once teams have been sorted convo's will be started. This season will run as per last season in most respects, including running multiple compounds and a top 10 reverse grid for sprint rounds. For those new to our fine forum, please read the Code of Conduct and Racers Guide, both good reads and worth a second look if it's been a while. The plan will be to have the rooms open from 8.30pm AEST and to start qualifying at 9pm. There will be 10-15 minutes of qualifying depending on the length of the track, and then into the race, usually around 45 minutes. We will be running 1 room again this season so tracks are again being considered that can cater for 30 drivers. Thanks to the gurus that are Marty and Rolz and their mastery of the servers, there will be enough slots and rooms available for practice during the week. There will still be an individual and team championship as per previous seasons. Most importantly, we will have a massive prize draw at the end of the season. This is the biggest draw ever, and as long as you have complied to the rules and reg's, anyone can win through our random no. generator system. Please go HERE for more info. Compulsory pit stops and compound change for normal and enduro rounds only. Extra pit boxes may be needed, find them HERE.

The points will be distributed as per position table included with championship ladder. This season will also see us using a bonus point system with Fastest Lap (FL) and Most Consistent (MC) for each room gaining an extra point. ie Win+MC+FL=Win +2 points for the round. MC will be as per simresults, with highest gross MC across both sprint races used for determining overall MC. There is a provision for a drop round this season. Every driver will have their worst performance dropped from their overall championship total. In the case that the first round of the season is DNS and likely the drop, then any ballast earned in round 2 by finishing in the top 5 will be multiplied by 1.5 (same as having two of that position in a row). The sprint round this season will see a full qual and practise session for the first race, and a 10min qual only for race 2. The points will be distributed to each driver for both races to come up with placings for the entire round. REVERSE GRID RACE 2 - HALF POINTS! Where 2 drivers finish on the same points, the driver who finishes in a higher place over the 2 races will be given the higher placing. Where this is the same, the driver with the fastest lap over the 2 races will finish in the higher position for the round. FL and MC bonus points will be given to the driver(s) with the best result over the 2 races. Success Ballast System is not in effect this season.
