    I'm going to have to drop out of this season due to work.
    Really sorry, I thought my Sunday evenings were off-limits, but alas!
    I'll hopefully race again later in the year when work schedule will be consistent, and uni is finished :)

    Bang is stuck in lockdown, and @Rangeraus created a (more) helpful video on a lap + track limits.

    Here is a quick one showing a pitstop:


    I don't mind drivers going through the final turn quickly and diving into the pits. I would ask you lift a little bit to try and make entry before the red/white striped area before the pit wall.
    HOWEVER, if someone else is on your inside and they are compromised by your pit entry, YOU WILL BE PENALISED.

    Pit exit is easy, it releases you after the unbroken line. Just be aware of drivers coming down the straight

    Pretty happy with that overall. My quali lap was really good to land P4 and tow @CaptainRisky21 to P5. Nailed my start too on Mediums and challenged the front runners, unfortunately I got caught in an awkward spot and lost spots to many inside the top 10. Got my pace on the money around lap 8 which was much too late considering I pitted lap 10 for Softs. Pace on softs was really good, managed to average low 55s to hunt down @Noodles87 and @Rangeraus but ended up 1 lap short as I finally caught them after the back straight on the final lap. Very happy with P6 considering. Huge congrats to @MINT_GTR @LR__AmazingHour @Twitchy for taking out the podium.

    Will more than likely be missing next weeks race.

    Pretty disappointed with that one. Got towed to a good qually lap by @Viperzed which put me in 5th. Got a good launch and was in 4th by the end of the 1st sector.
    Didn't last long though. I let my teammate @Noodles87 through before the hairpin and didn't move far enough back across, compromising my entry and in turn my exit. Ended up in the sand and a clean 360° spin pit me in last. Clawed back to 11th. Unsure if i'll make next race but I hope to see you all there

    My qualifying was pretty bad but I ended up getting a decent result in the end. Qualified P6 & finished P4. Started on the mediums just like most of the others, & ran them to lap 9 & put softs on till the end. Had an incredible battle against @Rangeraus for 4th position. Managed to get Ranger on the last lap but man that was some of the best racing I've had in a long time. I kept looking back & kept seeing @Viperzed getting closer & closer to us but managed to hold on just about. Other than that, my pace was average but ended up having a great battle till the end. Congrats to @MINT_GTR @LR__AmazingHour & @Twitchy for finishing on the podium!

    Was a really fun race tbh! Happy to be back for this season actually. These cars are super fun to drive and test us all in different ways.
    My first intention was mediums then softs but I wasn’t sure if the tyres would hold on for how many laps I had planned, little did I know we could run around for 8-9 laps on our fuel. But nonetheless I chose softs at the start and moved from P3 to P1 before the first turn after catching Matt with some wheel spin off the line and just better reactions to beat Amazinghour to the T1 apex! From there it was all guns blazing where I ended up pulling a 9 second gap by the end of lap 9 when I was due to pit. Unfortunately my strategy didn’t play out as I lost 3 seconds in the pits and being played with the diamond in the fuel causing me to over fuel for a whole lap. -.-

    To which the battle was on to hold on and hole that the soft tyres go off at the end. To which they didn’t and I had fallen to 3 after a really good scrap with both other podium runners, I kept with Matt for a whole lap on a slower compound but in the end really just couldn’t pull anything more out. Lesson learned for strategy for future races like that but happy to start my return in Season 16 with a P3 podium and a good haul of points :)

    Just a note for all Div 1 competitors

    We've made an executive decision to run the remainder of this seasons qualifying sessions on 0x fuel wear and 0x tire wear.

    In practice mode and then manually setting the grid? i.e we can still start the session on the soft and change before the race?

    So 1 lap on mediums or medium no stop or softs only?

    EDIT: never mind. Softs only in the OP
