    We might be able to pull qualy info from Half-Bytes stream. Race ended up being an agreed upon grid start due to technical difficulties.

    D4 just went from Green and not from the 'start zone' after T4?

    Have to say thanks for letting me back in boys. I saw that the room was restarted and so jumped to the toilet but came back and you had all started. Appreciate you guys stopped and restarting - i was just about to give up and do something else. Last place is last place!!!

    Round 5: 23/06: High Speed Ring - 44 Laps - Custom Weather - Late Morning - 2x

    [​IMG]
    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 T4 (entering the tunnel), the polesitter MUST hold 100kph (or similar). The field must not accelerate and brake erratically after this point. It is reccomended for cars to maintain one car length to the row ahead, 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, adjacent to the pit wall commencing on drivers left. At any point after this line has been crossed by the pole sitter, the race may begin. The second line is Start/Finish. If the polesitter reaches the second 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. Track Limits protests may be launched by any active driver in the race.

    Track Limits themselves are only possible to be breached inside T3 and T4. You are allowed to extend T5 all the way to the wall. Track limits will be defined as two wheels on the kerb, or white line, whichever is further out.

    Wall Riding is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN and those found to exploiting the wall anywhere (Particularly T2 and T6) will be disqualified.


    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 the final corner. 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 left 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 - High Speed Ring
    Our second temple of speed in as many weeks, High Speed Ring is the theoretical love child between an American oval and whatever Japan was smoking at the time they made it. Top Speed, rain, tire wear, bump drafting. Sunday is gonna have it all! Be mindful of how hard the tight hand side tires are used here, you may find yourself doing an extra pitstop or two just to stay on the road. Eyes to the skies too as rain could again be a factor!

    Back to our more traditional formation lap, I'm expecting more photos and for everyone to behave!

    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.

    TRACK SPECIFIC - Maggiore GP


    Maggiore has been one of the better original GT circuits in recent years, and should prove a challenging, yet exciting sprint round this weekend!

    We are returning to the standing start for this round only! I hope everyone is on their best behaviour into T1.

    Not 100% sure if I will make this Sunday's round. I've got to drop my daughter off to her nannies place so maybe caught in traffic. If I am not on - don't wait for me. Might join 2nd or 3rd race if I'm back in time.

    Cheers Robert.
