Yep, I think it's a good compromise for start time.
I'll be on tonight mate.
EDIT: and thanks btw
Yeah will try to get on too
YEah man i will get on but it may b a bit later tonight
I probably won't get on until after 9
Sounds good mate, you are the 16th driver with @Nathancarhead the reserve as he was out most of the season.
@dj2ca and @Bounty05 can you make sure you have him on your list so can get him an invite on race night...Will also need to add him to the PSN chat. Thanks guys
What is your PSN mate? I'll send you a FR and add you to the group chat.
themuss133 i believe
Cool, added to group chat.
I will get online around 7:30 tonight if anybody wants some practice
I might get on about 8:30 perth time
It's race day!
Please remember to have your pit strategy set BEFORE you enter the race lobby because you will not be able to alter it when you're entering the pits like in a tuning lobby.
@Bounty05 will be hosting this week so he'll set up a practice lobby at roughly 7pm AEST with tuning turned on, this way you'll be able to set your pit strategy before entering the actual race lobby. Alternatively you can enter a Quick Race Weekend from the Pcars main menu and set your pit strategy there. Either way, make sure you save your strategy and make sure it is the only strategy you have in your list.
You'll have a couple of options in terms of tyre strategy:
Soft Tyres x 2
If you think you can make your soft tyres last you will need to do one stint of 12 laps and one stint of 13 laps.
Soft Tyres x 1 and Hard Tyres x 1
If you don't think you can make your soft tyres last through two stints you'll need to do a shorter first stint on soft tyres and a longer second stint on hard tyres. You can either put hards on all tyres or hards on the fronts and softs on the rears.
You should have a fuel burn of about 1.75 litres per lap so adding a little for safety let's say 1.8 litres per lap. You need to work out which lap you plan to pit on before you set your pit strategy so you can adjust the fuel slider accordingly. For example, if you're going to pit on lap 10 you'll need 27 litres (15 remaining laps multiplied by 1.8 litres fuel burn per lap) of fuel to get through to the end of the race. So set your fuel slider to at least 28 litres, or 30 litres to be safe.
Let's all have a fun and clean race!
Also, there was talk of moving the start time back a little later earlier in the week but we have had no confirmation since so we'll need to stick with the normal start time this week (we'd need at least a few days notice to change the time so we can make sure everyone is aware). So qualification will start at 8:10pm AEST.
One more thing...
If you're unable to race tonight please let us know as soon as possible so we're not waiting around to get the session started later.
So far I'm aware than Nathan won't be racing tonight.
Not a chance i was going to make it tonight, have only just got home. A long day waving flags became even longer when a bunch of formula fords decided to cause havoc next to my flag post and i ended up with a fair amount of paper work to process
Disconnect not happy sorry @dj2ca if I gave you a tap wasn't sure if it was me or you lagging obviously it was me. Good pace dj2ca and mike.
Just a quick point of order
I passed Ad2mny, and i think shoot did too.
As i said in debrief after and in room message i flashed Ads repeatedly alerting him i was coming through as he was bouncing all over the place. I went past.
No worries, we can get @Ad2mny to confirm this for us.
As a Captain and a parent I don't tell lies.
I'm sure you don't. The results from the app can be a little funny sometimes when there's lag involved.
