    THIS EVENT WILL START 30 MINUTES EARLIER THAN OUR STANDARD RACES.
    (AEST - click for time zone info)

    REMINDER: NO CUSTOM PAINTED SKINS ALLOWED DUE TO JOIN LAG! PENALTIES MAY APPLY
    We recommend completely uninstalling custom painted skins from your ACC folders to avoid the excessive join lag issue.

    HOW TO SIGNUP TO THIS EVENT
    :sneaky::ninja::alien::cautious::cool::eek::poop::oops::roflmao::sleep::coffee::thumbsup:

    • Current Season 6 drivers are NOT automatically signed up - you need to go make it happen if you want to be in this race!
    • Drivers not in the current season are free to signup as well.
    All sign ups for this event will be handled by our results website. This requires a quick and simple registration to allow drivers to interact with the results site and help us to generate server set-up files and entry lists automatically.
    • Please go to stevehasadomain.com and either log in or register for a user account
    • Once you have logged in there, you will see a link to the signup form under 'News' on the home page
    • Follow the link, fill in the form and you are signed up for the event! If you have raced with us before you will find a mostly pre-filled form
    • You can now sign in to the site anytime to check race results, league tables, stats and so forth
    • Most of these race results, league tables, stats and so forth will also be visible here on our forum
    Back here at the forum you can check the Entry list below and see how it grows! Also if you are new to ROOZ ACC leagues please make sure you've done at least (3) legal timed laps in one type of GT3 on the qualifying server before the season begins.

    IMPORTANT INFO (*updated)
    • Limited Tyre Sets - Each car will be limited to 4 sets of dry tyres from *QUALIFYING [Server 1]
      (wets remain unlimited). *Official Practice will be on Server 2 with no tyre set limit - see 'SERVER INFO' below.
      Kunos have noted the following:
      "Please note that it is necessary to force cars to remain in the server, or drastically reduced tyre sets will be ineffective, as rejoining will reset the tyre sets."
      So please do not leave and rejoin the server after the start of *QUALIFYING [Server 1]. If a driver leaves and rejoins the server for any reason we ask that, in the spirit of our sporting competition they self limit their tyre use appropriately.
    • Teams of 2 drivers are an option - Both drivers need to signup as per above. Then please let us know by the night of Saturday 7th who is in your team and importantly who is the FIRST driver. The FIRST driver must always enter the server FIRST! If the second driver enters first it is likely to cause a game crash for one or both drivers.
    • Single Driver classes:
      • Pro, Silver, AM
    • Team Driver classes:
      • Pro + Pro = Pro
      • Pro + Silver = Pro
      • Pro + Am = Silver
      • Silver + Silver = Silver
      • Silver + Am = Am
      • Am + Am = Am
    • Redressing is a thing - It's important to redress when you have caused another car to lose position. More info here
    • Start Formation - The Kunos start system isn't perfect and still allows cars to be a fair way out of place by the time the lights go green so we will continue to review starts as a matter of procedure. We will issue warnings or penalties to drivers that we believe are gaining an unfair advantage or disadvantaging other drivers by being out of position.
      • Please respect other drivers and stay in your grid position
      • Do not stay 'ghosted' within any other car especially in the final phase of the formation lap
      • It is not acceptable to take another car's position before the start
      • If ACC fails to give a penalty for being out of position then the Admin team will issue a post race penalty
      • Driver's need to be side by side with their row partner and must maintain a reasonable gap to the cars ahead prior to the lights going green
      • Drivers should stop all weaving and brake warming as soon as the double file segment begins
      • penalties WILL NOT BE CLEARED even if it seems to be a glitch - just take more care!
    • Avoiding pre-start and Lap 1 Carnage! - Take extra care as the lights go green as all cars will be in a tight, accelerating pack:
      • Expect cars to be much closer to you and varying in speed due to all the others around so try to leave a tad more space.
      • Assume there are cars in your blind spots and and on the other side of visible cars until the pack spreads out more.
      • In braking zones you must brake SIGNIFICANTLY earlier than you would in general racing.
      • Avoid sudden direction changes unless you are sure you are well clear.
      • If on a straight section don't drift - stay straight.
      • Approach each situation with caution but execute your driving with intelligence.
      • If you need to redress in this tight pack situation keep going until you can move out of the traffic safely before slowing down
    • Optional use of indicators - Should drivers wish to use indicators to assist with managing lapped traffic, they are to be used as they are used on the road - i.e. you should indicate which way you are going - if you indicate left, you go left. REMEMBER TO TURN THEM OFF AGAIN.
    • All drivers should read the "Rooz Etiquette guide' and "Rules & Regs" linked below before the start of Round 1.

    MORE INFO

    DISCORD & VOICE
    All important information for racing is available on our forums, however we strongly advise drivers to join our Discord server for for voice and text chat. Sometimes critical information such as server issues, race delays, last minute race format changes, instructions to a specific driver, etc. will be relayed only through the Discord voice channel and text chat. There is also a healthy dose of banter that just makes the round more fun :). Once you sign up for any Season at Rooz you'll be given extra Discord permissions for text chat.

    >> ROOZ Discord Server <<

    Discord voice chat rules and etiquette:
    • if you intend to chat you MUST use push-to-talk. No-none wants to hear your gear clicks, heavy breathing or barking dog in the background.
    • non-excessive chat and banter is OK in Practice sessions.
    • There should be minimal chat in Qualifying sessions - essential questions, statements, apologies etc. only.
    • There should be minimal chat in Race sessions - essential questions, statements, apologies etc. only.
    • If you become frustrated or angry at yourself or another driver please do not push your talk button. Keep it private!
    • Please do not conduct arguments over voice chat. Sort it out later!
    • Abuse will not be tolerated. There's no place for that stuff at Rooz!
    • Please wait until ALL drivers have completed the final lap of a race before discussing your race.
    • Admins may speak at any time in any session for obvious reasons.
    • Feel free to hang around in chat after the race. Many of us like to have a laugh about things that may have happened in the race and it can be a nice wind-down :)

    WHY NO CUSTOM PAINTED SKINS?
    Unfortunately due to the serious "join freeze" or "join lag" issue we are currently not allowing the use of custom painted skins for this season. Specifically we are talking about skins painted externally and saved as PNG files that are added to ACC.

    We love the idea of custom painted skins and would dearly love to add this rich feature to our league but ultimately the quality of the racing must come first. We have discussed at length a number of ideas and methodologies to try to overcome the problem but these involve arrangements which add complexity for the admin team as well as all drivers involved in the season and still may not result in overcoming the problem. If the situation improves significantly either through better support within ACC or through the community arriving at workable solutions then we will certainly look at allowing custom painted skins into our Monday night league racing.

    If you also love custom painted skins then please help us out by searching high and low for real solutions, and by all means feel free to do some testing on our servers including during our Wednesday fun practice nights.

    At this stage we are not restricting the use of the in-game editor for creating custom colour schemes. This may change if we find that even that system causes serious join lag issues.

    NOTE: As we cannot block the use of skins at the server level we strongly suggest all drivers who sign up to the season remove all custom painted skins from their game installation folders as a precaution. If a custom painted skin has been accidentally left selected on a driver's car when they enter the server during a qualifying session causing join lag they will be immediately disqualified from the round. Any driver that has a copy of that joining driver's selected skin will experience a large join lag as that image is loaded into memory. Every other driver on the server may experience some level of 'join lag' even if they have zero customs skins in their game.

    Thanks for racing at RaceOnOz
    :)

    reserved for results

    It is very important that you take the opportunity to read the notes for this round, most important of which are the earlier start time and the server reset procedure. If you are in a team and we have included a 5 minute free practice session for the teams to properly join before qualifying, this will ensure that everyone participating should be all ready and we may elect to skip to qualifying once we have confirmed that everyone has connected.

    Driver 1 who is FIRST on the entrylist, must join the server first and hit 'Drive' (You do not need to leave the pits). ONLY ONCE THIS HAS HAPPENED THEN DRIVER 2 CAN JOIN THE SERVER. When Driver 2 loads into server they can occasionally placed in/spectating the wrong car, do not panic if this happens because nothing has gone wrong, you will just need to select your teammate from the timing or cycle through the cars using 'Shift + Arrow L/R" until you are spectating your own car.

    • Servers 1 & 2 updated with latest entry list including teams
    • Server 5 is now setup as an open practice server (see details in OP):
      • settings are identical to Server 2 but with no restricted entry list
      • This allows team drivers who are listed 2nd in their team entry to practice on their own when their teammate is not available.

    geez I dislike these enduro events atm, just no luck, pitted early (meaning 2 remaining stints of 60min) to fix damage and just fuel, no tyre change, worked a treat jumping back up to 12th, yet binned it on a kerb too much damage to repair.. Dylan Tyquin the chicane incident was not intentional (after the earlier collision in the lap) just unfortunate as I basically came to a stop to avoid any contact but still hit you, apologies for that.

    Well that was fun! My first attempt at a Teams enduro and all went pretty well. Thanks @Cooper for taking me on and getting us onto the podium! I took the middle stint, which was cut slightly short by the drying track and melting wets, but put in mostly consistent laps except for looping it around once at Blancimont but luckily no impact and minimal damage. Had a couple of 1 second freezes also where I would almost lose control, don't know what might be causing those? Anyway, you can thank me for dropping us down a few spots to give you someone to chase, and it was good fun watching you carve through the field on the final stint. Very close finish, was very close to going one more lap which would have been interesting.

    A race of hard work, took a chance that the rain would not last long so started on a wholly inappropriate setup. :cry::cry: . Made one mistake with a slow slide which were compounded by a following car not being able to avoid me. That resulted in a 20 second repair time spoiling what could have been a possible battle with Paul.

    Still had fun, especially once it dried out and having a front seat viewing of all the top 10 battles. And 2 hours of not having a spin at Eu rouge! And finished ahead of @Wally who could not take the heat (or is it dampness?)

    Bad luck mate. I knew something had gone wrong early when I came up to lap you. But then you nearly erased me from the track a couple of times in that lap :eek: Pretty sure it was headlight damage preventing you from seeing the blue flags ;)
