    Yes all good for an early start next week :)

    Last night didn't go so well for me, not having a lot of time to practice the track, or sort out a strat - I winged it, starting on the mediums and changing to softs later in the race. While this strat worked last race at Big Willow, didn't work out in Tokyo. So though I got the fastest lap on lap 19 - of which I was actually really surprised to get it - I wasn't very competitive. Did have a few close laps with a few guys throughout the night - but generally pretty quiet.

    Bring on the Enduro round, hopefully can have a bit more time to practice this week, and be back to my normal competitiveness.

    Round 3: Autodromo de Interlagos - 56 Laps - 9:30 Sunny - 23/5 - Endurance
    [​IMG]

    WELCOME to Season 15!!
    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 7:00 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 : 7:50 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)
    YOU MUST START ON YOUR QUALIFYING TYRE AND PITS ARE CLOSED DURING QUALIFYING

    RACE START TIME : 8:00 AEST (once qualifying has completed)

    PLEASE NOTE THE EARLIER START TIME ABOVE

    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.
    There are many areas to be careful of track limits, and especially be careful on the slippery astroturf. Corners of note are T1-7 and T11-12.

    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 Mediums (mandatory - unlimited sets) & Racing Softs (not mandatory - 1 set ONLY)

    PIT ENTRY : Please attempt to follow the pit entry lane. Failure to do so may result in a penalty (especially in the instance another driver is affected). The entry lane is on the left hand side coming towards the main straight. If you do not attempt to use the lane, and cut across the striped lines or later, you will be penalised.


    PIT EXIT : Please attempt to follow the pit exit lane, Penalties will be adjudicated in similar fashion to Pit Entry. Please be aware of cars approaching out T3. Be careful when exiting that you don't move across the track impeding incoming cars.
    NOTE: Pitting is NOT COMPULSORY

    (a BANG LAP will show an ideal pitstop later in the week)

    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 steward will be @Hatfield. 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 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

    PLEASE NOTE THE EARLIER START TIME ABOVE

    Interesting, long night last night. Not having any practice during the week, I jumped on early and put in about 40 laps - trying to sus out the strat. Went in with not very fast times, but was pleased with my consistency.

    Qualified out on Mediums, and up until the last lap I was in 11th, so I didn't get my hopes up that I would place anywhere... then I managed to nab 7th right at the end.

    Kicked off pretty well, no issues or pushing I could see, even through the first chicane - well done everyone. Kept my cool and did my 19 laps on Meds, then on to softs. I was catching up everyone on the softs, and was winding my way through the field, getting into P3 by the time I went for the next pit stop, swapping back to meds, and just enough fuel to get over the line. Unfortunately most others went M-M-S, so the last stint I wasn't very competitive, and at one point, whipped the tail out, hitting the wall, giving myself a little bit of damage. This happened about 7 laps to go, and wasn't in contention for top 4 as they had run 9 seconds ahead. Kept the rest of the race clean, and got over the line.

    Enjoyable race for an enduro, though my arms are feeling it today lol. Well done to Grease, Nemo and Rango for the podium, and Rolls for just missing out.

    Catch you guys next week!

    Well done Extreme, you piped me on that last lap in qually. Also Greasemonkey, Nemo and Rango on the Podium.
    I went for the 1 stop on mediums same as Nemo and was thinking it was a good decision half way through the race. First stint I looked after my tyres and was within 2 second of Nemo in first place until I dropped a wheel on the grass at the last but one corner and lost around 10 seconds. Had some good battles working up through the field passing the guys on worn softs.
    Second stint I didn't look after my tyres so well and towards the end the very worn mediums were no match for fresh or fresh softs. Was a bit demoralising watching guys come by with ease and sail off in the distance. Well done Nemo for making the 1 stop work.

    @Hihatjoe do you think you would be better suited to division 4?
    Then I could slot @SPye2_WAU into division 3

    There is a lot of run off and tarmac on the inside of corners that you need to be careful not to extend track limits onto. The main ones are, cutting T5, running wide at T18 and the final chicane T19-20.

    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.

    PIT EXIT : Please attempt to follow the pit exit lane, Penalties will be adjudicated in similar fashion to Pit Entry. Please be aware of cars approaching out of the hairpin. Be careful when exiting that you don't move across the track impeding incoming cars. For cars coming out of the hairpin, please give room to drivers as they exit the pits.
