    Qualified P4 & Finished P3. Made too many mistakes at the start but my pace wasn't too bad for the first stint. Jumped Risky & Simon in the pits & was right behind @Rangeraus for P2. Managed to pass him but I made a mistake which dropped me back behind Ranger. That costed me a potential P2 finish which is a shame. Had a really good battle towards the end with Ranger but I couldn't get passed him. Happy with the P3 but should've been a P2 finish.

    Round 2: Circuit de la Sarthe - 9 Laps - 7:00 Sunny - 24/10

    WELCOME to Season 17!!
    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 7:30 AEDST. 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 AEDST for 10 mins. We are using qualifying 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 :
    8:30 AEDST (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.
    Please be very careful as there are multiple places to cut corners/run wide and easily make up time. On the long Mulsanne straight (broken up by chicanes) you may use all the tarmac but the chicanes are limited by the ripple strips (and white lines where there is no ripple strip). The straights before indianapolis and after arnage may also use all the tarmac.
    @Rangeraus plans to have a lap guide up later in the week

    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 : Sports Mediums

    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 solid entry line on the left hand side of the pit lane entry. Also follow the lane with normal track limits.


    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.
    Do not cut the solid line on the left of the exit.
    NOTE: Pitting is NOT COMPULSORY


    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 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

    VIDEO: @Rangeraus has kindly offered to complete a track limits video so look out for that soon

    Hi All, im also going to give tonight a miss. Seriously considering if I carry on with the season. I'm just not enjoying the car, it's no fun when it's a chore to practice, and I'd need a crap load of practice to keep up with you Div 1 fellas.

    The point isn't to keep up with the front half, but to race with us in the bottom half.
    If I drop you a div, chances are you'll dominate.
    You don't need a crap load of practice, just some tips I'd wager.

    I was never asking to drop a div. I'm just not enjoying the car. Also I've never dominated in any season, think my best is a 4th. I would need some practice and just don't have the desire right now. Sorry

    Hi Guys, Im sorry, but Im going to give this season a miss. The car is just not for me, I'd normally practice and muck around for fun a few times a week in prep for the weekend, but just dont find myself having any interest in doing that in this car. I really wish everyone all the best and will catch up with you soon. Im going to give Wheel2Wheel ago, I just prefer GR3 and 4 cars. Apologies to the Gamesman team, but to be honest I was never going to provide any points for you in Div1.

    :( Good luck at W2W, even 1 point is preferable to 0.
    All the same, hope you get your groove back, see you out and about in community events.
    Thanks for being part of the team.
