    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.

    Have done a few races now with random weather but it being random doesn’t matter how much testing you do you can still be surprised on race day..trick is for people to have multiple pit strategies set to handle wet and dry,

    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 !

    After getting my first pole ever I was stoked...had a good start and kept in front of Azza for 18 laps..was hectic tho as I think I was faster most the track but he made up epic time into that bus stop which kept the pressure on. Changed my front Tyers which I thought was the normal but cost me the win and got me 3rd place...was real happy with my pace and that mistake won’t happen again...congratulations to morning star and azza for first and 2nd. Great work by the back markers letting us though and we’ll done to my wife shells on 10th in your first race...ur way ahead of me for your first run.

    Well another fast passed race completed
    It was great to be in the mid pack and see some of the skill of drivers from the back runners :) , I will need to watch my tailgate on the up coming races
    And there was a couple of big offs from the fast races but they came back firing and raced thru the field

    Arrrr what can I say but frustrating. Came out of pits with my limiter ON. Even had a big pit limiter engaged sign on my screen, BAM pit lane speeding penalty even before I hit 50km..:):):):)...kept at 30-40 km the rest of the lane then hammered it when I was past the green hats...BAM..disqualified for pit lane speeding. Left lobby and came back in with a 2 grid place penalty. Was on the back foot already now trying to stay calm..threw in a 25.8 for 6th which was half a second slower than my pb. Started 8th. Race start was reasonably clean and within 3 laps had my self to 3rd feeling good again. Pitted at about lap 8 or so to get out of traffic and came out right behind Arnold. We had good pace and was keeping within 4-5 seconds for a few laps when the bloke behind me lagged back and forward a few times which put me off and had a moment into the Chicane , watched the cars go past and back to 7th..grabbed 1 spot back when a driver ran off and was making good ground on kakkadoo but ran outa laps and finished 6th...saw some good racing by others, again well done to the back markers and as always congratulations to the podium. A race I’m going to try hard to forget.

    Bad luck about the pit lane dramas coxy, Ninchendo64 had the same issues and didn’t get to put a lap in. Managed to put a decent lap in on the last lap of qualifying to nab pole and started well. Made a few errors early on and Kakadoo grabbed the lead and had a good battle with him and Ikilledskippy for a while. Pitted lap 16 and had to whack tyres on. Couldn’t match the pace of Arnold and couldn’t reel skippy in. Skippy had a moment second last lap and thought I’d been gifted 2nd, but he reeled me in and got my on the last lap, great move!
