    Welcome Welcome!!
    This season we will be running the Tatuus FA01
    [​IMG]

    Skins - TBA

    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 full 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.

    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.

    We usually have a prize draw at the end of the season. Please go to the sponsorship section for more info.

    Compulsory pit stops and tire change for normal and enduro rounds only.

    STRACKER Server - http://rooz.simracer.me:50041/lapstat?currservers=ROOZ-ACserver05

    Points
    The points system will be managed by our masters of charts, and will be posted within the ladder section at the top of the website, and updated weekly. 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.

    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.

    Ballast System is not in effect this season.

    Teams Championship not in effect this season.

    I'll put my hand up for that one Jason, watched the replay of our contact and I certainly drifted towards your side. Bit of a loss of concentration as it certainly was not intentional. Can also confirm walls are harder than a Tatuus which ultimately ended my race.

    Until then was a very good race :)

    I had a pretty crap race.
    Was doing well for the first 2 laps until I spun on turn 1 and took out Cameron, sorry for that mate.
    Then 6 laps in crew chief tells me I have 2 laps of fuel left. Turns out I forgot to put in the 18 laps of fuel I was hoping to do on the mediums when working out how much fuel I needed for 8 laps on the softs. Pitted and changed to softs and put in enough fuel to finish the race. It's a shame the softs would not last that long. In hindsight I should have done a quick fuel top up then pitted again later to swap tyres. Nursed the tyres home.
    Well done to Andy, Tez and PB. I like how Andy did not do a qual lap and started at the back of the grid, then slowly ate us all up to finish 1st. Well done mate, I envy your driving skills. :)

    Qualli was good, but the race was one to forget unfortunately, riddled with costly mistakes and punted @c4rLo5 when I thought I saw a gap which closed very quickly - sorry mate. Was good racing up til that point. Congratulations to @Andy for walking it in from the rear of the grid. Well done to @pb1 on third and @c4rLo5 for getting back to finishing right behind him.

    Sounds like most of us had a shocker! Went for hards for the start and came out of T1 backwards (think @Mael and I did the same thing). Managed to catch up to the back of the pack after a while but then I lost it at T1 again on lap 6 and bent my steering. Not realising my tyres app was bluffing to me about the mediums only lasting 8 laps during prac, I soldiered on sticking with my plan to pit lap 20 ish...until I saw everyone on the mediums pitting over half distance...so jumped in the pits but the repair took forever and was a long way back after that.
    Being such a great car and track I was fuming I that I barely got to race anyone - thanks to my incompetence.
    Can that just be a practice round? ;)

    All good @tezpez85 , didn't have the pace to keep up with you anyway but it was fun regardless. I think it would have been boring for @andyo450 if he actually qualified :alien: Congrats on the win again. Bad luck @Mael after a great quali time. Looking forward to this season, should be a fun car to have some closer racing.

    Well done Andy on last to first, and Tez - even with mistakes you still fought back to take 2nd. Nice job PB on your first podium.
    I was certainly lucky with that race.
    I hadn't realised it was the night for round 1 until I checked the forum to see if there was a fun run (oops)...
    [​IMG]

    I then had to scramble to download the track in time which of course wasn't terribly quick from good ol' RaceDept...
    [​IMG]

    I made it into the server in time to do 1 prac lap. I've never seen that track before so I used qualy as prac and expected to start at the back - which I did apart from Andy who'd not done a qual lap presumably to spice up his race :). I then quickly setup a pit strat after hearing a few comments about tyre life. I decided I'd see if the mediums could do 19 or 20 laps and then do softs to the finish.

    It worked. The mediums got a bit angry at me by about lap 15...
    [​IMG]
    ...but they held in there till I pitted on lap 19. The new softs were fun and I punched out a few PB's before I took the edge off them.

    So guess who led the race for 5 laps! yay I'll take that stat :sneaky:. That was thanks to my long first stint and lucky avoidance of trouble which saw me pit later than anyone else haha! Lucky for me the Tatuus has a nice default setup and is quite forgiving so my lack of practice didn't bite too hard. Same with the track which at least had good visibility for all corners so it wasn't too hard to learn (didn't master it though).

    Now with a guaranteed top 10 finish (as long as you finished) I was very happy to end up 5th. The fact that I was 5th by T2 on the first lap doesn't mean it was all flowers and girly winks though! I had some cool battles with Cameron and Andy and there seemed to be plenty of other battles going on throughout the race which really bodes well for this season in this car I think.

    That race marked the first league race with my new Fanatec setup. Moving from the trusty old G27 after nearly a decade to the Elite Wheel and Elite pedals with load cell brake is like night and day! Love these things. Maybe I'll get a direct drive wheel and hydraulic pedals in another 10 years time ;)

    Hope to see everyone on the server this week.

    The fact that I got most consistent... I think y'all need to have a long hard look at yourselves ;). Great race, but possibly because of where I finished. At one point was looking at second, thanks @tezpez85, but I'm not racing you nor @andyo450.. I had a mad brake foot cramp about 10 from the end that I had to manage to the chequered flag and @carlos-pt was steadily reeling me in, but I remembered the Mind Head mantra

    @Mael did I make contact with you in T1 off the start? I didn't get any contact, but you spun right in front of me. If there was a tap it never registered for me, but sorry if so.

    Haha nice write ups. :laugh: yeew @krunch glad you're enjoying the new fanatec CSL kit it's nice kit hey! so smooth and quiet compared to the logitech. :thumbsup:

    I won't bother with the teams championship this season on account of numbers being a bit low to make it worthwhile..... so on that note will hold off until next week to post results as I'm pretty sure y'all know where you stand after 1 race :roflmao: but by all means set up team chats to share setups etc.

    Thats a fun little track. I havent driven that one before. Its pretty easy to learn so I got up to speed pretty quickly apart from t6.

    I got sidetracked during qually and had about 1 min left when i got back.

    I made a few errors early on but got into the groove after a few laps. Had some good battles with a few guys. The slipstream was pretty strong in this car which spices things up. That and the brakes being on a bit of a knife edge made the battles good fun.
    Tez made a bit of an error that dropped him behind pb and c4rLo5 so I made a bit of ground on those three while they were battling. After the pitstops i came out second but Tez made a small error on his outlap which let me past. I managed to build a tiny gap while his tyres came up to temp then it was a matter of trying to keep him out of slipstream range.

    Wd @tezpez85 on 2nd and @pb1 on your first podium. Nice work.
    It should be a nice close season in this car, looking forward to it.

    All good mate was a shame after making it through turn 1 side by side was a good battle. It through you into the wall pretty bad.
