    Ok guys, Generic post to all divs
    Track list is up in OP.
    - We have made a few changes to the div placement, but if you see someone that is CLEARLY out of position after tonights meet and greet, please let me know so we can adjust divs before next weeks round 1.
    - As always, am sure that there are tracks / variations that people wont like, but these cars seem to give good racing everywhere so we have tried to go with tracks not used, or rarely used.
    - If you have decided NOT TO RACE please let me know so we can take you out of the div lists so we know where the spare spaces are. If we can fill them we will.
    - ROUND 4 at Algarve is a RANDOM WEATHER RACE. We will test this a little more before that round and if any problems we will adjust accordingly
    - Round 5 is our 'wet race', with a wet qual and then a dry race start, with rain starting in the final weather stint.
    - REMEMBER that the Renault is the faster FWD (slightly) car in the group. If you pick the MERC you can only change after round 1. Please keep this in mind in terms of the 7 rounds.....
    - We will get the teams championship sorted next week once we confirm the division placements
    - The cars are hard on tyres, and they do have a tendency to overheat the fronts.... There is still plenty of grip, and we have tried to keep the track temps in the window between "about" 30*-45*
    - With the wear on ACCELERATED, there should be a heap of strategy in making them last, and whether to take tyres at your stop, or keep the worn ones till the race end.
    - you shouldnt need fuel, and while 'STABLE' seems the better setup, some tracks mat suit 'LOOSE'

    Hope its a great season guys, we have massive grids in each division, so there should be some cracking racing.
    For our new drivers, please know and understand our rules regarding track limits and contact....I will highlight these as well in the driver briefing each week.
    Stu

    hope everyone had a good run last night.... @AOCleaner74 how was the head this morning ??

    Everyone seemed to pop up on the time sheets at different stages last night, so with a little prac i am sure we can all watch Slambo drive off into the distance again ! How the hell he goes so fast has me buggered.
    I have a few messages from people who saw some who may be out of position, but if you felt you were in the wrong div, or saw someone struggling please send me a PM so we can sort asap.
    Thanks stu

    Haha I did think about it but not only is it slower but the handling sucks aswell. Every track around a second slower using it and harder to be consistent.

    ok guys, not long now till we grid up for race 1 of the season.
    Expect some close pack racing, so PLEASE take care to not punt each other off track !
    - If you do make contact, redress where necessary
    - Remember track limits, you cant run wide of the track / ripple strips or white lines
    - All drivers have been allocated a team, please make sure you are in the right livery.... All posted in the first post of the teams championship thread. http://raceonoz.com/forums/index.php?threads/teams-championship-official.3589/

    HOpe you all have a great race guys and girls.... Dont forget to get the results or qual and race !

    Well another race of what could have been....
    Couldn't get quite the lap I wanted in quali . Ended up 4th which wasn't so bad.
    First couple of laps were very close between Xr8, slambo and myself ( with another angry bunch of 6 just in behind.)
    Lap times were very close between all, but then I had Bennii coming in close with a DT penalty next to his name!
    Not sure if he knew, but we come together into the bus stop and I am back to 8th!
    From there I had some awesome battles, especially with Slambo which lasted from lap 18 on to the end.
    Well done Poppin for the win. Boss man Stu for a great drive to come 2nd and blu for rounding out the podium .
    I lost out to Aykay when he pitted on the last lap and came out between myself and Slambo....
    Hopefully this will be my drop round. ..

    What a race !
    If thats going to be normal for the season, then everyone needs to put their seatbelt on and race in a full face helmet !

    Q - I was off my PB by just under .1 and lined up 7th with a 12:8 which put me 7th..... only .2 off the front row...Bloody close times lads !
    R- Got a great start and settled in to 7th i think with a crazy pack in front and behind.... TBH the whole thing is a bit of a blur, pack racing does that ! I just tried to stay in the draft of BLue, stozz, benny and AOC, and see what happened later in the race... Gary hooked on for the ride and by lap 10 i think i was up to 4th or 5th after stozz had an issue, and AOC and Benny came together..... Gaz and i had managed to gap the guys behind, and were now in our own little battle, till lap 20 odd, he got a run down the back, and we went side by side through the last 2 turns.... I though time for my stop, and decided to not take tyres..... Worked a treat, as gaz, slambo and a few others lost 10 sec in the stops.....

    With about 15 to go i just had Aykay and Ant ahead, yet to stop, and poppin about 8 seconds up the road.... Was thinking i was on for a result, so started to clench when blue was closing with about 5 to go...... Managed to hold on for 2nd, which ill happily take, really clean race, only slight hiccup was when i braked checked Gaz into the bus stop trying to stay out of a 5 car battle in front of me !! Sorry mate.....

    Well done to @POPPINFRESH1234 , not a bad return to the series ! Looking forward to seeing you and the front runners go at it in these cars....

    At this stage results are still provisional, however no messages yet re driving standards or protests.....
    Cheers stu

    Yea well done on the win poppin, very quick you had me well covered. Good battle with blue at the start side by side for a lap and half. Got into 2nd and pushed hard to catch poppin then I realised you were gaining 2-3 tenths on the first corner alone. By that stage you were to far ahead and I lost the slipstreams. I guess the curb counts as track. I was settling in for a long lonely race In 2nd.
    But somehow stuffed up my pit strat and ended up changing all 4 Tyres. Lost a heap of time came out way behind a angry pack lucky managed to sneak my way through to finish 4th. well done Stu also when I saw you in 2nd I assumed you still had to do your pit stop haha.
