    Just a heads up for those that don’t know. There is a Bathurst Tribute event 5/12 in the community Forum. Need about 10 or so more drivers to fill a second room. Looks like a great event, have a look, get involved (please)

    Round 1: Laguna Seca - 26 Laps - 14:30 Sunny - 17/10

    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 careful not to get involved with any cars in the pit lane exiting while along the main 'straight' and also especially careful not to cut the exit of the corkscrew.
    @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 yellow line on the right hand side of the pit lane entry. (left solid yellow line do not worry about it)


    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 exiting T2, please give room to drivers as they exit the pits.
    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

    Please ensure all of the above is read for Round 1. From round 2 onward, only new information will appear outside of the spoilers to make future reading easier.

    If you manage to make it around without pitting, you'll be a god.

    Haha, should have said MANDATORY pitting
    Seeing as I generally finish in the bottom three, i guess I could wind the power all the way back and see if I can make it....

    Arrrgh, I threw away a win!
    Having been frustrated with traffic in qualifying, I quit back to the pits and went out in clean air and put the car on the front row with the one lap left to me. Got a great start, instantly into 1st and proceeded to maintain a 1 to 1.sec gap from those following. Somewhere around lap 7 or 8 the '3' brake marker at the last turn disappeared and so I led a procession of the 1st 4 cars off the track as we braked at '2'! Recovered into 3rd, and having saved more fuel stayed out an extra lap. When I rejoined after the stop it was right behind the leader @boneslightning. Passed him a lap later going into the turn 1 hairpin as he went slightly wide on dirty tyres from the last turn. Kept up a better pace but, in order to keep myself in front of a fast finishing @Bluemoon, pushed just a tad too hard and went wide at the penultimate turn and have an off track excursion that dropped me back to 4th. Silver lining though was the Moon was my joker for the round.

    Check this out, that '3' board was definitely missing after lap 7 right?
    This shot is from the replay, lap 17.

    Rotten little so and sos. They were happy to leave the '1' board on the rack at turn 1 though, near the first apex. That was visible in the replay.

    Defiantly some clitch going on. just watched replay and it was there the first time the hole race then i went to lap6/7 and found big Norm hit it then change cars to confirm and it was already moved. Went back to the start to watch and it was moved on lap 1. I remember hitting the turn 1 sign in the race but then on replay it is in the right position all race and i didnt hit it

    and the parting of the race leader for me was pretty impressive
