    If you are a Champion from Season 4 or more recent, I apologise for the mess around, I had ambition to run this event differently and it wasn't apparent to me immediately that it wouldn't be entirely fair, You will get your chance when we can next fill a grid. At the moment Kidbyers will be your host on Sunday night if you could add him on psn to save some time. I will post lobby settings to this thread at nearest convenience so you can all begin hustling and grinding those lap times down! I will also open a PSN group chat later today so you guys can organise practice lobbies etc.

    Please remember that whilst there is no 2nd place, This is still a community event for our friend Bruce. Sandbagging and poor driving standards DO NOT EXIST IN ROC AND NEVER WILL. I will come down swiftly if I see this on the night. It is a handicapped event so you are not benefitted from not trying, everyone has an equal chance of winning this race! The grid will be posted later in the week, possible even as late as Saturday so we can have time to have a look at lap times and see how everyone is progressing.

    I will also post an itinerary soon so we can see how the night will run. We will feature two drivers (selected by myself) to run a tribute lap in each of Bruce's championship winning cars, before a minutes silence which is of course customary for the ROC.

    I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to be running this event at last and to have it happening right in front of me will be something very special. Thank you always to @t_b_williams for forging such an immaculate lore that this event has. Good luck everyone!

    @Viperzed hey mate, I have one of those questions. Does fuel burn off mean that it will be full tanks and no fuel consumption or empty tanks with no fuel consumption or something else? I know right, but someone else might be thinking it:D

    I believe it is empty tanks with no consumption, happy to be proven wrong

    @Steve Neilson @Cameron Neame
    Spleece has contacted me informing me that he is indeed available so I unfortunately have to place you two on Standby. If there are any people who become unavailable, I will call on BOTH of you to step in, otherwise you will be rightfully invited to next season's event.

    Unfortunately Keeden's work roster means a late night on Sundays is pretty much impossible for him. Real shame, hopefully it comes back around again in the future.

    0x, the idea will be to do quali lap after quali lap with no car wear whatsoever. Track conditions will stay similar too.

    Are we still running the usual staggered start, based on your quali lap?

    Yep, will be standard. I'll take what data I can find from that round this season plus if you guys want to submit your own laps to me in private or public, it would be appreciated.

    So am I on the money if I say there is no qualifying pre race as it’s a handicapped start based on history and lap times provided this week, and there is no fuel and tyre wear for the race and fairly consistent conditions? And one more question. In your opinion do you think you get the best grip on zero tyre wear or 1 x for example?

    In theory, you should get the most grip from 0x tire wear, everything else said is spot on!

    Zero tyre should give the most grip coz there's no wear. But tyre temps do play a role, as demonstrated by Kireth Kart on a YouTube video where he displayed the tyre temps via a telemetry app for the top drivers in one of those online time trial events. The best times were set where the drivers drove in a way that maintained higher tyre temp.

    I'm happy to open it up to 1x Tire wear but then benefit lies well and truly with those who save their tires better than others, plus any element of tire wear in a race like this is far from ideal. Makes setting the handicaps an absolute nightmare.

    Personally I am not requesting any change and am happy which ever way you decide. My question was because I found this last season that I struggled to qualify well for the races and could set faster times in the races than qualifying. Possibly due to my inconsistency under the pressure of qualifying and being smoother in race mode. I did a session on Tuesday night with the season 2 x tyre wear on and best lap time I managed was 1.50.874. Took me a bit to get it down to that as it’s not my best track. The front right cops a hammering around here. Probably have another crack tonight with zero wear on and see the difference.

    That's what I'm most concerned about, the tire wear. It's still a 30 min race for ROC so having tire wear on could lead to a pit stop and that's absolutely not what we're aiming for, it's supposed to be a sprint shootout with similar lap times from start to finish.

    I have all the settings sorted as of last night, unfortunately my PS is playing funny buggers so I'm struggling to post them right now, will try again this arvo.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but ROC has always been x0 wear for tyres/fuel

    I did a session last night at 0x fuel/tyres and my best was 1:50.194. Grip seems fine, it's quite thrilling where you can now push and not be on tenterhooks about it letting go. There's probably a little more I could squeeze in the time.
