    Morning everyone,

    For next season, we've yet again been treated to two excellent cars that have potential to be brilliant season cars. The Nissan Skyline GTS-R and the Honda NSX JGTC both offer varying degrees of performance and should provide close racing should we choose to pursue them!

    I urge everyone to buy these two cars as soon as possible, both currently in the Legend, and Used Car Dealerships respectively.

    Round 3: 02/06: Monza (No Chicane) - 30 Laps - Custom Weather - Evening 2x

    WELCOME to Season 9 for RaceOnOz GT7!
    Please take a couple minutes to read the following so you have an understanding of what is expected on race night.
    If you have any questions, or want clarification on any of the rules or regulations please ask!

    ROOM OPEN:
    Room captains may have practice rooms open beforehand but should have the official room up by 7:30pm AEST. Please be on time, or let the room captain or div thread know if you may be late. If all agree, the room may wait for you, Within reason. Please remember we have drivers from NZ, and later starts mean a much later night for them.

    SIGHT ISSUES:
    Before qualifying, exit to lobby and spend 30 seconds in spectate mode, scroll through the list of drivers on track and make sure that you can see their car. If you can't see somebody (and they are confirmed as being on track), exit the lobby, re-join, and check again. Type the number of cars you can see in the lobby chat and cross check with other drivers to ensure clarity.

    QUALIFYING : 8pm AEST for 10 mins.
    Feel free to run practice laps prior to qualifying, The host will trigger a 'Room Reset' closer to the commencement of Qualifying.

    PITS ARE OPEN DURING QUALIFYING

    RACE START TIME : 8:15pm AEST

    LAG ISSUES / ROOM RESTARTS:
    This is up to the room host/captains. If there is a Disconnection (or cars stuck on grid) at race start, it is sporting to try to get them back in, which may mean a new room to be set up. I would suggest only having 1 restart if required due to DSC, due to having to set up the room from scratch and also having to set timed laps in order to set the grid. Please be as reasonable as you can with this....

    Race Start - Rolling Start
    For the first time EVER, we are trialling a manually operated double file rolling start in Sunday League. Below you'll find a quick run through on how this will work on the night.

    Drivers will set off from the grid in a sensible manner, beginning their formation lap. The speed of the polesitter during this lap is totally up to them, however exiting T6 (Ascari), the polesitter MUST hold 100kph (or similar) until the start zone and pull off to their desired side of the circuit as the field goes double file behind them. The field must not accelerate and brake erratically or weave after this point. It is reccomended for cars to maintain one car length to the row ahead, and to try and stay perfectly alligned with the car next to you (radar is perfect for this!). The field MUST be set by the start zone. The "start zone" is a theoretical set of lines between which the start of the race may occur, triggered by the polesitter accelerating to race speed. The first line is across the circuit at the start of the pit wall (right hand side) on the start/finish straight. At any point after this line has been crossed by the pole sitter, the race may begin. The second line is the start/finish timing line. If the polesitter reaches the start/finish line and hasn't yet elected to accelerate, the race will begin automatically. Any drivers who fail to obey starting procedure and hold up the lobby by accelerating away at the standing start will receive ONE WARNING over the season, after which they will be sent to the rear of the grid for each breach. Any major issues will require a restart of the race. The race starts will be under the jurisdiction of the Room Captain/s and only they may call for a Red Flag/Restart unless stated prior.

    TURN 1 LAP 1:
    The old saying goes, you can’t win the race on lap 1, but you can definitely lose it. Please be mindful of other drivers on lap 1 coming into turn 1, and for that matter, the entire race. It can be very demoralizing to hot lap on your own for 45 minutes as I'm sure many of you are aware.

    TRACK LIMITS:
    As we are running with 'track limit penalties" OFF, we will run with our usual Raceonoz track limit regulations. This means you MUST have at least 2 wheels on the ripple strip OR white line that defines the track limit. If you do make a mistake and have to run outside the limits, be aware that you are not allowed to gain any advantage, position or time wise. Track Limits protests may be launched by any active driver in the race.

    Track Limits will be monitored at turns 2, 6 & 7 as well as generally around the entire circuit. Track limits will be defined as two wheels on the kerb, or white line, whichever is further out.


    CONTACT:
    Is to be avoided at all times..... If you make contact with someone and gain an advantage, YOU ARE EXPECTED to give the spot back. Occasionally, Gran Turismo track limits may teleport a disadvantaged driver backwards on circuit to ‘reset’ them, if this occurs at the hand of another driver, IT IS EXPECTED that the driver at fault will wait and redress the position.
    Side by side 'rubbing' is racing is allowed and promoted within reason, but all drivers are expected to give racing room. For clarity surrounding racing room, please feel free to PM @Viperzed
    Show each other RESPECT! It is difficult enough to drive the car at the limit on your own, without someone squeezing you within a millimeter of the grass.
    So be patient and show respect to your fellow drivers.
    If you are redressing contact, please do so out of the way of other cars, off the racing line, or if there isn't much room, off track.

    PIT ENTRY/EXIT LINES:
    Pit Line Penalties are ON so you will be penalised in game if you cut any part of the entry or exit lines. Be mindful entering the pits that you need to commit to entry not long after parabolica. You may receive a penalty for misjudging your line on entry. Be mindful not to impede other cars on your way in. On pit exit, cars exiting the lane are reminded to keep drivers right if there are any cars approaching, you will have to give them space.

    BLUE FLAGS:
    Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. Failure to observe blue flags WILL result in a penalty

    STEWARDS GROUP AND RACE PROTESTS:
    This season, the Head Steward will be @Viperzed. If you have reason to protest, please SAVE YOUR REPLAY, and then let him know via a PM.
    DO NOT BLOW UP IN THE FORUM OR IN THE ROOM CHAT. There have been multiple incidents where the replays from drivers have been different, so its true that sometimes things are not as black and white as they may seem. You have until MIDNIGHT, Monday night to register your protest via PM. Stewards may ask for video evidence from both drivers or room captains to make any decision.

    SAVE YOUR REPLAY:
    If the room host can ask all drivers to save their replay would be good before exiting the room.....once they exit out and the option goes, it cant be retrieved!

    PARKING UP:
    If you are unable to continue to race, please enter the pits and leave your game paused without selecting tyres so that your car stays parked in the pits. Parking up off track activates yellow flags in the sector, and even though penalties are off, we have reports of penalties occurring for passes happening near the parked car. Quitting off track results in a sometimes race ending lag spike and may be punished in extreme scenarios.

    ATTENDANCE:
    Could all drivers please inform Room Captains or make a post on the division thread if they do not intend on racing on Sunday night, Room Captains/ Lobby Hosts are advised not to wait for anyone who has not communicated their intentions. If you do not post in your room thread or psn chat that you cannot attend, a spot may not be held for you for the following weeks race.

    TRACK SPECIFIC - Monza
    To the temple of speed we go for a proper test of the GT One's performance. There will be no typical first Chicane here so the chaos is bound to happen at our....second? Chicane? Either way, please everyone be mindful you will be carrying some incredible speed into the second Chicane and this car is questionable over kerbs, some care will need to be taken all night!

    Rolling starts were spot on last week and I'd love to keep that consistency going!

    If the Room Captains could also please include a rough time for the formation lap (the lap 1 time), that would assist in the Race Results.

    Things didn't go so well for me at this race. Qualifying didn't go my way and I just managed to jump from 11th to 9th on the grid on the last lap. I lost two places being careful at the first chicane and spent the rest of the race trying to climb the field. The first few laps were chaotic and I lost a lot of ground being baulked. I eventually fought back to 6th but each place gained was one hell of a struggle. Congratulations to Tolley, anders and glenn.

    A much better run this round for me. I made sure I made some time for practice last week and it paid off. Qualified 7th attempting to gain some benefit from slipstreaming but it didn't work out as it doesn't help when the person you are drafting messes up and you have to avoid them (risk vs reward I suppose). Worked my way up to 5th on the opening lap but then got baulked when @RBRHoges97 thought it would be good to take out his team mate. Dropped me back to 8th so I set about regaining my losses. Rolled the dice at the end of lap 16 to pit early for the undercut and it worked out. Had a bit of pucker moment at one stage shortly after the pit stops as myself, @Ozglenn and @Bluemoon went 3 wide into the Curva Grande after some fast drafting. Moon won out, then Glenn and I swapped places over the next lap. Eventually Glenn got ahead and Moon and I raced hard till the end.

    Happy to covert the pole into a win this week. And seeing Hoges one lap pace - glad I didn’t have him for company at the front!
    Only excitement from me, apart from texting and driving straight into the gravel on the formation lap, was having a clumsy bump with Controller when I was lapping him. Basically he pulled right to let me past at the same time I pulled right to go around him and I ended up giving him a nudge in the rear. Fortunately we both continued unscathed.
    Not for a second suggesting Controller did anything wrong, but this made me wonder - what’s the etiquette under blue flags? Backmarker should pull off the racing line, or up to the front runner to make the overtake?

    Lap days at Eastern creek back in the day, they had indicators on the car to say pass on this side. However I have seen the AI when I come to lap them on the Nordschleife then indicate what side of the track they want to be on as I sail past. Only an idea which probably 6ads more confusion to the mix

    BLUE FLAGS:
    Please observe blue flags, and move out of the way of faster cars if you are being lapped. Failure to observe blue flags WILL result in a penalty

    Hi everyone,

    Very pleased to announce that we've finally launched a RaceOnOz Gran Turismo based discord server! This will serve as an ADDITION to our already flourishing community on the website. We recognise that the website forums these days are a little outdated and something of a hassle for mobile users, so this seemed like the next logical step for us to make!

    At this stage, we have no future plans to drop support for the website, the discord will be to bolster our options to get involved in this community!

    I hope to see a lot of you over there!
    Cheers, Liam

    Had problems all week and set backs. Lost div 4 notes and raw recording so will have to do that one again. Lucky this week is allocated off week.
    Thanks again Emmo for notes to follow.

    Lap count for Round 4 has been reduced from 28 to 26 laps
