Anyone up for some laps tonight?
Hey guys found this track guide pretty helpful thought I may as well share it
Thanks I've only done about 10 laps here in my life
Actually a pretty good layout tricky track though this round will be tough
Ill be on tonight for a steer if anyone wants to join me. Also what times are optimal?
Round 7: Autopolis International Racing Course - 25 Laps - 9:00 Cloudy - 29/8 - Retro
WELCOME to Season 16!!
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 :
Spoiler: Room Open
Most room captains will 'try' to have rooms open by about 7:30 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.
8:20 AEST for 10 mins. We are using practice mode this season for qualifying.
Once 10 mins has been reached, finish the lap you are on and park up off track.
PITS ARE OPEN DURING QUALIFYING
RACE START TIME :
Spoiler: Race Start
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....
Spoiler: Sight check
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 :
Spoiler: 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 :
Spoiler: T1 L1
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 :
Spoiler: 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 on place to take care is when cutting T19.
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 - unlimited sets)
PIT ENTRY :
Spoiler: 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).
Do not cut the white lines from where they start to split into 2.
PIT EXIT :
Spoiler: 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 on the straight. Be careful when exiting that you don't move across the track impeding incoming cars. For cars on the straight, please give room to drivers as they exit the pits.
Please do not cut the unbroken white exit line on the right of the pit lane.
NOTE: Pitting is NOT COMPULSORY
BLUE FLAGS :
Spoiler: 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 :
Spoiler: Save 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 :
Spoiler: 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.
Spoiler: 'like' to attend
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
VIDEO: @Rangeraus has kindly offered to complete a track limits video so look out for that soon
RETRO ROUND: Can't wait to see everyone's retro liveries!
Thanks Ranger appreciate that
Can’t wait for tonight boys I’m on for some praccy now
Thanks for the season everyone really enjoyed the past few months, Gq for the season being the host, sparke bones hihat and all others for the battles and great championship and of course hatfield risky and all the other moderators
Cheers to the podium boys. GQ as always gr8 work at keeping the room stable.
The Hi light of My season Was a 2nd place Podium in a field way ahead of my pace and some Gr8 midfield Battles.
WELL Done All.
Thanks for the season everyone! Shout out to GQ for hosting and keeping the room tight and to @Luk3yd06 I was lucky to win the championship over you as you generally achive quicker lap times, especially in the second half of the season. You were untouchable in the last race.
Hopefully we get road cars next season so I can be competitive in div 3.
Thanks for the championship battle I look forward to many more!
Hopefully the BMW can get up for next season after the tied finish in this seasons vote, It is very disappointing that the guy who had the deciding vote for the Lancer then decided he didn't like the car or track selection and quit after only the first round.
Did sparkles win the championship?? who would have thought
I had the final vote?
Take it easy no need to start jabbing me
