    Happy with my result in qualli & race, as I really struggle with consistency at this track.
    Had a couple of good battles, especially with @Slartybar until he dropped a wheel on the inside of turn 12, dragging him toward the outside of turn 13 & having a huge shunt with the (hard) tyre wall. It would have been horrific for both of us, had it been real! Thankfully he instantly ghosted so I sailed through. I also had a scary moment toward the end of the race, with a half spin & a tap of the wall coming out of the last right hander. That cost me 6 or 7 seconds but was luckily far enough ahead of 4th to be safe. Had no chance to catch @BKXI or @Ozglenn as they were too consistent & fast!

    Thanks @Hatfield. I'm not sure what went on with that, I also signed up for Imgbb which also didn't work. Probably an operator error.
    I'm out on Sunday and probably won't be back in time for the race so cant host the next one. I'm happy to do it again if needed

    @Buster_Danis the spin was one of many for me. I was doing well up until the half way point but after that episode I was trying too hard and yet again made too many mistakes.
    Well done on the 3rd and to @BKXI and @Ozglenn

    Fun race last night lads. Got real scrappy in the opening laps which had me on edge but after that it was smooth sailing. Glenn gave me a good little battle for a few laps there, ultimately I was just able to drive more consistently than others. Anyways, won my first ROOZ race, so cheers boys!

    As @Slartybar is doubtful for this round, I'm happy RH and RC.

    Round 3: Tokyo Expressway South Inner Loop - 25 Laps - 18:00 Sunny - 15/11
    [​IMG]

    WELCOME to Season 13!!
    As always please take 2 mins 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 : Most room captains will 'try' to have rooms open by about 7:50 AEST. Please be on time, or let the room captain or div thread 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.
    QUALIFYING : 8:20 AEST for 10 mins. If a driver joins while qualifying mode is active, room captains will need to grab a quick photo of qualifying results, cancel the race and then set grid by host.
    In practice mode, once 10 mins has been reached, finish the lap you are on and park up off track. (Qualifying mode should be used so the room can be set to x0 tyre/fuel for qualifying)
    RACE START TIME : 8:30 AEST (once qualifying has completed)

    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 always look at 1 or 2 starts if required due to DSC, but as it gets later everyone needs to be aware of getting things going. Please be as reasonable as you can with this....
    SIGHT ISSUES: Ensure that you can see everyone on track. 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.

    FALSE START CHECK : Please note that the start type is Grid Start with False Start Check
    Please practice this so you know what to expect. Simply, you hold the brakes on until the lights go from all lit, to none lit


    TURN 1 LAP 1 : This has the potential to ruin someone's night if we don't use our heads! Should be everyone's goal to get through the first phase with ZERO contact. Give room and run in your 'lane' till you have space to run the normal race line. If your unassisted tap causes someone to spin, you need to redress.

    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.
    THE WALLS WILL BE THE TRACK LIMITS HERE. The biggest concern is the shipping container area T2-5 so you can cut the lines as the walls are our limits.

    CONTACT : Is to be avoided at all times..... If you rear end someone and gain an advantage, YOU ARE EXPECTED to give the spot back. Side by side 'rubbing' is racing, within reason, but all drivers are expected to give racing room.
    If you bump someone and they end up off track or teleport back to the corner entry, you must wait for them to rejoin and get back up to speed.
    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.

    TYRES : Racing Softs

    PIT ENTRY : The Yellow Pit entry line is to be followed at ALL TIMES. 4 wheels across the line that determines Pit Entry will be seen as a violation of track limits and you will be subject to a penalty depending on severity and quantity of cuts. This starts on the left of the hairpin and you should be to the left of the line.
    PIT EXIT : You are required to use the pit exit lane, Penalties will be adjudicated in similar fashion to Pit Entry. You should be to the left of the Yellow pit exit line. Please be aware of cars approaching out of the hairpin.
    NOTE: There is a COMPULSORY TYRE STOP


    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 stewards will be will be @Hatfield , @Matthyus & @emmo46. If you have reason to protest, please SAVE YOUR REPLAY, and then let them 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 will ask for video evidence from both drivers or room captain 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 (or no 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.

    FINAL NOTE: Could all drivers please confirm their attendance for this Sunday by 'liking' this post in your division.
    If you are unable to attend, please post in reply as much in your division. This way we can figure out our reserves or if the room can start early in advance.
    (ALSO IF YOU KNOW YOU CANNOT ATTEND, PLEASE POST SAYING SO, SO THAT RESERVES CAN BE ORGANISED IN ADVANCE)
    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

    Would love to start earlier if everyone's there! One of the few GPs most of us won't have to stay up until silly o'clock to watch

    @fezza what happened on your last lap (25)? In the replay I could see that you pulled to let mad_mullac by but hes was completing his 25th lap i.e. finishing. Why did you pull over in the container yard section?

    I wanted to get lapped so i could finish the race as soon as I crossed the line, didn't work out. A race to forget and got really bored at the end.
