    Well done to @Noodles87 ! Though not going to lie I was pretty gutted to lose the win and fastest lap (by 0.02s) on the final lap of the race.
    Something something, could have, should have, would have...

    I have to say well done to @Ian Cannan
    Qualified well in 4th and had my measure for the first half of the race while keeping up with @CaptainRisky21 !
    Even though he was relegated to 5th by the end, it was still a great drive

    Thanks @Hatfield. One thing I’ve learned in this Div is that it’s very hard to recover from even the smallest mistake (and I made a few last night). Everyone is so very fast and very consistent. Regardless of my finishing position so far, this has been the most rewarding season for me since S3. Looking forward to the next rounds.

    Round 5: Willow Springs Big Willow - 2x 14 Laps - 17:30 Fine - 14/11 Sprint

    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 careful as a dropped wheel can result in a long off-track excursion. If this occurs, please ensure rejoins are safe.
    @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 track limit line on the right hand side of the pit lane entry. If you run wide at the final turn, you may enter the pit lane without penalty from stewards.


    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 track limit line on the right 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

    SPRINT ROUND: The sprint round is 2 races. The second race is reverse grid from the results of race 1, but is only worth half points. The points of both races are consolidated and a final round order is calculated. Those positions are what scores you the points for the round on the championship table.
    PLEASE take care with the reverse grid race that you pass cleanly.

    Boy that was a wild one. Didn't have a great qualifying run for the first race, but I did manage to finish P2 in the end. Had some awesome close battles with @Rangeraus & @CaptainRisky21. The reverse grid race was crazy though. Sorry if I made any contact with others, I was getting hit a lot on the side & rear. Anyway it was getting pretty intense out there. Managed to avoid most of the mess towards the middle & ended up finishing P2 again. Decent results in the end, but definitely had to work hard for both podiums.

    loving that first shot ;)

    Race 1 went as expected, sitting comfortably with a few second gaps ahead to 4th and behind to 6th.

    Race 2 was very hectic. I was trying my hardest to keep the quicker guys behind while making up spots, but instead I was shuffled back to last. With all the battling it was easier to stay with the pack and then I started picking up positions.
    The last many laps were spent battling with @Rangeraus & @HighStakes123 . Stakes made a last corner move down the inside of Ranger which allowed me to eventually jump both of them.
    This then started many laps of me having to defend Ranger, which I managed to the flag. Despite your frustrations Ranger, I did enjoy battling you and I suspect had you had less pressure from behind, you would've found a way past.

    I wasn't confident of my pace at the ring, but it was just a fun combo to wrestle with. Controlling the rear when it stepped out, and being able to attack the kerbs, just fun.

    Had a couple of offs, but kept it facing the right way and had a last lap battle chasing down @HighStakes123 to pass him on the final straight.
