    For Wednesday nights during our next Monday season we will also keep a leaderboard going for a less formal shorter format sprint race season. The nights will consist of 3x15 minute races with a 5 minute qualifying session before each race. Q1 start time will be the same as for Monday nights with this at 9:15 AEDT during daylight savings and once this is over we will switch to 8:45pm AEST. Races will be at mixed times of day with 1 race likely at night in each round, official practice will be open 45 minutes prior to q1 but a practice server in the coming combo is always up on ROOZ server 02.

    These races will be basic sprints with no pit stops, we wont enforce any car rules so you can use any car you want for any race. Many running Mondays also may want to use it as a warmup for the next round. Others that cant do the longer formats on Mondays may find these sprints more suitable. The servers will be password entry but open to anyone here with the password not only those entered officially, These seasons will be split into 5 rounds x3 races so 18 races per season, there will be 1 drop round per season and class structure will be the same as the main season. Anyone not running the main season can also set a qualifying time in our Kyalami server in order to get a class for the Wednesday season.

    There will be results posted in this thread for each round and also the leader board will be in the 2nd post here. There will not be a new thread per round.

    Here are the 3 season schedules for the current Wednesday's sprint season.

    Hopefully we get a few more turnout for this weeks Wednesday races as we only had 9 last week, the first 5 week season will remain as is on a private Australian server but if numbers stay very low through the following rounds we will probably open this up to a public server for the following seasons.

    Having it open to public wasn't too bad with high SA requirement... I got quite adept at the /ban command for the high ping ppl... But wary opening Monza to the public at the best of times lol

    Wednesdays you can use any car for any race, only Monday season is locked to whatever you start your first race in.

    No idea why it is down - assuming a problem with the host - will take a proper gander in the morning

    If you can, try vs the AI... they are pretty good these days... though can easily intimidated at key passing spots... unless u set aggressive to 100 and they become a bit psycho haha
    But there are now a few local pub servers about with lower SA that get reasonable numbers ~10 per race
    don't use quick join... it normally puts u overseas to crap ping servers and u get a poor experience... in my books anyway

    Just a heads up that tonight we will be racing at Brands Hatch, it will be cold and the same weather settings as will be run on Monday. Higher chance of rain but still not much more then 30% chance in theory, however it shouldn't become an undriveable storm even if it rains but still likely to stay dry.
