    Only other thing i wanted to add was that i wont split the div in 2 (2a and 2b championship) this season given we have so many new entries and the possibility of drivers slotting up or back if all 17 ar available.

    Won't be available for the second round at Bathurst:(
    @stucar17 With more and more people in this situation, have you looked at the possibility of pushing the whole season back and having that weekend off? Has been done many times in the past for long weekends as it is here in QLD.

    I will have a warm-up room open tonight from around 7.30pm Sydney time. Please make sure you set your pit strategy in this room if you haven't already. Qualifying will start at 8.10pm, and then there will be a 5 minute warm-up after this for drivers to fix any issues, grab a drink or empty bladders.

    Please keep mics muted during qualifying and the race.

    Also, could we have a volunteer for timekeeper please? Not much involved really, just need screenshots of qualy results, race results (total times) and fastest laps. Then posting them here in this thread.

    Good to see everyone who said they would turn up turned up even it did come at the expense of me racing. Hope you all had a tough, clean race. See you all next week (Fingers Crossed).

    At least you weren't fighting for the lead after qualifying on pole and disconnected on lap 9

    Thanks for the restart guys. Caught the young fella watching YouTube. :mad:
    Pretty happy with a 6th or 7th. Depends on what a replay shows.
    Will get times up tomorrow night after work.

    Sorry for the dogs breakfast at the start there guys. My thoughts were that I wanted to give everyone the opportunity to race in the first week of racing in a car that people have been waiting for since pcars was released. I probably should have gone through the re-start procedure before the race sorry. Unfortunately with the shocking audio in the room, and trying to reset things, plus posting messages to PSN group and answering peoples questions, it all got a bit hectic.

    In hindsight though, with the fuel restrictions this season and inability to change pitstop options, it probably would be better to just 'race on' if someone disconnects during qualifying/the race. I was panicking all race that someone was going to run out of fuel because of the extra lap added for the rolling start. If it happens at Bathurst next week, it will definitely be an issue. Is everyone in agreement with this? Please speak up if not.

    Other than this, racing was great thanks guys, had a blast! Had a great battle with @agolfer78 before the pitstops, then an epic 12 lap battle with @dunamotornz after my pitstop. I came out on softs after my pitstop, while he had done an earlier stop and put hards on (I presume). Spent the next 12 laps trying to get past him, but just couldn't find a way to do it. Great racing mate, I was drenched in sweat after it!

    Good racing last night. I decided to pit a couple laps earlier then I did in my full length practice to try and get the undercut but it ended up being 3 laps earlier as I didnt consider the extra lap! So I was a sitting duck at the end of the race. Cant remember who it was last lap on the final corner I took way to much kerb and I fired me straight into them then things got magnetic. Thanks for the redress sillymagpie, nice job getting the pass done after though.

    Well done last night guys, big grid which is what we were looking for....

    NOW THE BIG PROBLEM !!!!!
    and this will be a generic post to all threads...

    The issue we have is that we now have too many drivers for 3 divs.....
    I have @bubba gee missed last night along with @Mattozi while @seth123 is keen to race every week and he was subbing for zachery who i ended up moving to D2., Div 2 had @Jim_aka_The_Man away and @COME_AND_GET_ME7 couldnt get a slot and now @redness-63 is keen to race but is way too fast for div 3......

    So the big issue is would anyone take issue with postponing a week, changing to 4 divs and using the spare week to try to recruit a few more drivers to fill up the extra spots.....I think it would give div 1 16, and the other divs roughly 12 per grid....

    The only other way to do it is to put the extra guys in their own div and give them points based on race time or similar....We could even rotate drivers out for the 'spares room' if we have too many each week.....

    Need to make a decision on this asap, so everyone knows whats going on....it is unprecedented to have 5 new entries the day before season start

    Was good racing from all. was abit confussed why we restarted the race 3 times. I hope this is sorted by rnd 2. I have always beleived in no restarts. we had a good start on that first start, any ways.,.. my race was good, 7th to 4th. me and agolfer had a great battle towards the end and my tires let me past him on the final lap. Great race guys
