    OK everyone, Welcome to Season 5 !
    Please take 2 mins to read through this, the first briefing is probably the most important ! We have a few new drivers, so if you can help them out where needed, invites to prac rooms etc, would be appreciated.

    All the standard stuff remains as it always had, track limits and race room etc. From the prac rooms we have had so far, this car will give some great pack racing, with some really easy regs for a change. As you would have seen in the regs above, there is NO compulsory stop, only 1 type of tyre to use, and its so good on fuel that it wont be an issue. Basically, everyone can run flat out all race.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, i think we only had 2 protests over the last 4 seasons.....would like to keep it that way if we could ;)
    Also thanks to PAGNIAN for providing the prizes for the last season of the year, 2 x Wheelstand lites valued at $199 each !
    Remember you must race and complete 4 of the 7 rounds to be eligible for the PAGNIAN prize draw at seasons end.

    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 : Round 1 is generally the most common where we see contact issues, particularly if we have drivers who haven't done a lot of practice. If you are mid or back of the pack, please make extra effort to slow into turn 1 and not dive-bomb into the mid pack. Giving room on both sides till you get through the turn 1, 2 and 3 complex will see everyone get through without their night being ruined. Take extra effort to not ruin someones night in the first race of the season ;)

    TRACK LIMITS : Track limits will remain as they always have, you must have 2 wheels on OR inside the ripple strips at all times. Make a mistake or 2 and thats ok, but making CLEAR advantage from cutting the track will see you penalised. If you do it consistently, you may even be DSQ from the race.
    Is a few places here where you need to remain inside track limits.
    - TURN 5 CHICANE - drivers must not straight line !
    - TURN 7 CHICANE - drivers MUST keep 2 wheels (or make a clear attempt) on the ripple strips. Drivers making clear advantage here will be penalised.
    - TURN 10 CHICANE - Same as above !


    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.

    COMPULSORY PIT STOP : Not required EXCEPT for the dry to wet round and the enduro. If you havent done pit stops before though, make sure you know where each track control line is just in case.

    CAR SET UP : There are 2 options for car sets up that people can make.
    'LOOSE' or 'STABLE'. It is up to you what setting you use, and it may vary based on the track being used. I would recommend trying both to see what gives the best lap times.

    PIT ENTRY / EXIT : We will be running with Pit penalties ON, so will need to make an attempt to enter and exit using the pit lane lines. We have seen people hit with warnings in game, so be aware of staying in the lane. DONT FORGET TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE AT 60KLMS AT THE PIT ENTRY LINE OR YOU WILL GET DSQ FROM THE RACE IF YOU GO IN TOO HOT.

    BLUE FLAGS : Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. Best to get off the race line, and with a small lift let them go, so you can continue the fight with those in your class. Failure to observe blue flags WILL result in a penalty

    STEWARDS GROUP AND RACE PROTESTS : This season we will doing any protests just on our own platform. The stewards group will again consist of Myself, Ad2mny and Gary... if you feel the need to protest, you need to make us aware by PM before midnight Monday following the race. You will also need to have Video evidence of your protest, or ask the room host to have a look on their replay. You may appeal any stewards decision, and the final decision will be made by Koastr. If there is an issue in the race DO NOT BLOW UP IN THE ROOM OR ON THE FORUM.

    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 !

    Ok All, Round 2 this week at Snetterton....

    Last week, good roll up, had a few away, so hopefully they are back and we have big grids again this week..... AOC has gone up into D1, but people i messaged about a possible change in other Divs didnt get back to me :confused:

    DRIVING STANDARDS - Round 1 was overall pretty good, we had no protests, however there was some questionable contact, and passes in 2 of the rooms. REMEMBER, you MUST make as much effort as you can to avoid contact.

    - THE START ! If you get a cracking start from the mid pack, you still have the responsibility of getting through clean. If someone bogs down (turning off auto clutch helps with this) you need to be prepared for it. If it happens again in Div 4, we will look at a rolling start to avoid the carnage and ruining the race / night for half the field.
    - LAP 1 - From round 1, the pack racing means that if you are back in the pack a little, you need to brake a little earlier. Also run a slightly different line to the car in front, so if you do make a mistake, you can bail out and avoid contact
    - REDRESSING - If you hit someone off track, you are expected to redress..... Wait for them on the side of the road, and let them past...
    This is a classic example of needing to redress... Contact to rear of car...pushing off track and driving past. If contact looks like this, and you dont give the spot back, expect a penalty !
    NON REDRESSED CONTACT

    TRACK LIMITS - All wheels outside ripple strips

    QUALIFYING : 8:10 EDST
    RACE START TIME : 8:20 EDST

    TURN 1 LAP 1 : Here at Snetterton, T1 is very fast, so is the real potential to run someone out of road on the left side of the track. For those on the right hand side, try to hold your line all the way to the run to turn 2 hairpin..... By then the grid should have shaken out.

    TRACK LIMITS : Track limits will remain as they always have, you must have 2 wheels on OR inside the ripple strips at all times. Make a mistake or 2 and thats ok, but making CLEAR advantage from cutting the track will see you penalised. If you do it consistently, you may even be DSQ from the race. There isnt really anywhere to cut here, as the big sausage curbs are in the right places to make it turn ugly really quick.

    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 are following cars the obvious places where you could rear end someone are
    - Turn 2 HAIRPIN
    - Turn 4 HAIRPIN
    - Turn 8-9 complex
    - Turn 12 onto the front straight

    COMPULSORY PIT STOP : Not required EXCEPT for the dry to wet round and the enduro. If you havent done pit stops before though, make sure you know where each track control line is just in case.

    sometimes what I've done is forgot to self calibrate my clutch like the brake does after a few hits. and I get a ramp effect which bogs it.

    Another way to launch is auto clutch on or off, rev limiter in neutral and wack it into first as the lights go, stops you rolling forward on hill starts too.

    Round 3 already ! Well done to the winners and podium getters from Snetterton.... By the sounds of it was some great racing. Hopefully we have some big grids again for round 3.

    Have been a few issues with room stability and compatibility.... if everyone can possibly be in the prac room early to get any issues sorted would be good....
    - Try to invite the least stable guys first
    - do it 2 at a time, and wait till they are fully in the room before firing off the next invites
    - In Div 4, i think @low_ZN should have a crack at hosting, see if it can fix the instability for a couple... @anne
    - Reset your modem before you start the PS4 and jump in to race....

    - THE START ! If you get a cracking start from the mid pack, you still have the responsibility of getting through clean. If someone bogs down (turning off auto clutch helps with this) you need to be prepared for it. If it happens again in Div 4, we will look at a rolling start to avoid the carnage and ruining the race / night for half the field.
    - LAP 1 - From round 1, the pack racing means that if you are back in the pack a little, you need to brake a little earlier. Also run a slightly different line to the car in front, so if you do make a mistake, you can bail out and avoid contact

    QUALIFYING : 8:10 EDST
    RACE START TIME : 8:20 EDST

    TURN 1 LAP 1 : Here at Donnington, The track is fast and flowing.... Lap 1 you will need to give room till the grid shakes out. Is potential for cars to run 2 wide for almost all of the first sector, so please take care to avoid contact.

    - The rain will come on 'about' lap 13 or 14....
    -

    TRACK LIMITS : Track limits will remain as they always have, you must have 2 wheels on OR inside the ripple strips at all times. Make a mistake or 2 and thats ok, but making CLEAR advantage from cutting the track will see you penalised. If you do it consistently, you may even be DSQ from the race.

    The obvious place for cutting is the back straight chicane.....

    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.


    COMPULSORY PIT STOP : YES you will need to make a stop ! Make sure your pit start is set to take WET TYRES and this needs to be set to ALL..... If you select 'recommended', you may not get a tyre change. If you have ANY issues with this please let me know and we can help you sort it
    - Make sure you select the right 'strategy' in the qual room,
    - double check it before you ready up for the race.


    CAR SET UP : There are 2 options for car sets up that people can make.

    'LOOSE' or 'STABLE'. It is up to you what setting you use, and it may vary based on the track being used. I would recommend trying both to see what gives the best lap times.

    PIT ENTRY / EXIT : We will be running with Pit penalties ON, so will need to make an attempt to enter and exit using the pit lane lines. We have seen people hit with warnings in game, so be aware of staying in the lane. DONT FORGET TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE AT 60KLMS AT THE PIT ENTRY LINE OR YOU WILL GET DSQ FROM THE RACE IF YOU GO IN TOO HOT.
    - The pit entry is VERY SHORT, so you dont have long to get your speed to 60. Make sure you have by the time you hit the green cones
    - Exit is straight forward, make sure you are aware of cars leaving the pits... this
    shouldn't be too much of an issue as most cars will pit on the same lap, either 13/14

    BLUE FLAGS : Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. Best to get off the race line, and with a small lift let them go, so you can continue the fight with those in your class. Failure to observe blue flags WILL result in a penalty


    STEWARDS GROUP AND RACE PROTESTS : This season we will doing any protests just on our own platform.

    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 ! The game only holds 1 GIG in replays or saved set ups..... if you have too many replays saved, it wont let you do any more.

    Round 4 this week at the tight and technical Sugo... great little track for this car, will need to be patient in making your passes ;)

    QUALIFYING : 8:10 EDST

    TURN 1 LAP 1 : The run to Turn1 is short so should be easy to get through the first few corners without issue....As always, give cars around you room.....

    TRACK LIMITS : Track limits will remain as they always have, you must have 2 wheels on OR inside the ripple strips at all times. Make a mistake or 2 and thats ok, but making CLEAR advantage from cutting the track will see you penalised. If you do it consistently, you may even be DSQ from the race.

    - Turns 1, 4 and the end of the back straight are the obvious places where you could run into someone.
    - CHICANE - Be aware that if someone gets loose in the chicane you will need to have your wits about you ! Things get hectic there pretty quick in a pack of cars, so stay awake !!

    COMPULSORY PIT STOP : Not required, however tyre wear here is pretty steep.... i expect a few drivers to have ordinary tyres towards the end of the 31 laps...:D

    CAR SET UP : There are 2 options for car sets up that people can make.
    'LOOSE' or 'STABLE'. It is up to you what setting you use, and it may vary based on the track being used. I would recommend trying both to see what gives the best lap times.
    - loose still seems the best option

    Thanks to stozz who has put a hot lap vid together while Juzzy is away....


    Some great racing last week lads (and Lady !). Well done to everyone, another week with no real issues and again, no protests.

    This week is the sprint round... make sure you have a quick read if you are not familiar with how this works... With the reverse grid, all drivers need to be aware that there is more chance of contact with the fast guys trying to come through the field. Just a reminder, you need to do it cleanly, and you need to keep your wits about you and give room to each other.

    - REDRESSING - If you hit someone off track, you are expected to redress..... Wait for them on the side of the road, and let them past...
    This is a classic example of needing to redress... Contact to rear of car...pushing off track and driving past. If contact looks like this, and you dont give the spot back, expect a penalty !

    QUALIFYING : 8:10 EDST
    RACE START TIME : 8:20 EDST

    The Brno track is the polar opposite to Sugo.... Its fast, its wide and there is a heap of lines you can run to try to get past. It really does suit pack racing, which is why we picked it for the sprint round.

    RACE 1 :
    TURN 1 LAP 1 : its wide enough to give each other heaps of room, even 3 wide. Really no excuse for contact, but be aware of drivers checking up in the pack. Qual will be as normal, with a normal 13 lap race.
    RACE 2 :

    Room hosts are to add an extra lap, so 14 laps.... NO qualifying. At race start (DONT JUMP THE START) all drivers will line up in reverse order from race 1. (best to have your mics on for this ;)) Once in order, the field will drive off, and the lead driver will stay at about 120KPH till TURN 12, where speed will drop to 80KPH.
    - The lead driver then has full control, and all cars should be within 1 car length.
    - Given the short distance between the exit of T14 and the start finish line, the lead driver will 'go' on the exit of 14
    - NO PASSING BEFORE THE START LINE.

    TRACK LIMITS : Track limits will remain as they always have, you must have 2 wheels on OR inside the ripple strips at all times. Make a mistake or 2 and thats ok, but making CLEAR advantage from cutting the track will see you penalised. If you do it consistently, you may even be DSQ from the race.
    - Not really anywhere to cut other than the turn 11/12 chicane and the entry to 14 / front straight.
    You all know the gig.

    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.


    COMPULSORY PIT STOP : Not required.

    CAR SET UP : There are 2 options for car sets up that people can make.
    'LOOSE' or 'STABLE'. It is up to you what setting you use, and it may vary based on the track being used. I would recommend trying both to see what gives the best lap times.
    - loose still seems the best option

    PIT ENTRY / EXIT : (in case of drive through penalty)
    We will be running with Pit penalties ON, so will need to make an attempt to enter and exit using the pit lane lines. We have seen people hit with warnings in game, so be aware of staying in the lane. DONT FORGET TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE AT 60KLMS AT THE PIT ENTRY LINE OR YOU WILL GET DSQ FROM THE RACE IF YOU GO IN TOO HOT.

    BLUE FLAGS : Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. Best to get off the race line, and with a small lift let them go, so you can continue the fight with those in your class. Failure to observe blue flags WILL result in a penalty

    STEWARDS GROUP AND RACE PROTESTS : This season we will doing any protests just on our own platform. The stewards group will again consist of Myself, Ad2mny, Gary... if you feel the need to protest, you need to make us aware by PM by midnight Monday following the race. You will also need to have Video evidence of your protest, or ask the room host to have a look on their replay. You may appeal any stewards decision, and the final decision will be made by Koastr. If there is an issue in the race DO NOT BLOW UP IN THE ROOM OR ON THE FORUM.

    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 am hoping there is about 3 seconds worth of drafting there!

    Stozza can you add the view which shows gear and speed next time so we can get a better idea of what gears you're using in the corners? Cheers

    Sorry this is so late guys and Gal, been a pretty hectic week..... Well done to everyone last week in the sprint round, seems there was some more great racing across the divs. Well done to all.

    On to Bathurst, a track i'm sure everyone would have run a lot over the years. Given how well the season has gone, i wont bore you with the long briefing other than to make the following points.
    - LAP 1 - We all know its a bit of a concrete canyon, so please be careful on the first lap or 2 when the pack is close. Use your heads, and if near the back of the pack make
    sure you pick your spots to make a pass.
    - CONTACT can be a nightmare here as the walls tend to spit you back onto the track, especially from the cutting right through to Forrest elbow. Please make sure you can rejoin safely if you have an off.
    - The Dipper ..... if you get stuck here, 'try' to get out of the road of oncoming cars. Might be worth while checking you have your reset button mapped. ;)
    - Car set up - While i haven't been on at all so far this week, have heard people say that the 'stable' set up seemed to work for them to get a lap time. I havent tried, but Juzzy did a 17 with stable, and i know w couple of guys were quick on that setting. I 'think" stozz did his hotlap on loose.....
    - Track Limits - The only real spot to 'cut' is at the chase, so will ask everyone to keep an eye out there. Dont think it will be an issue, as there is more risk of spinning than making time !
    BLUE FLAGS : Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. Best to get off the race line, and with a small lift let them go, so you can continue the fight with those in your class. Failure to observe blue flags WILL result in a penalty
