    Are we going to have 19 drivers across 2 lobbies? A 2h race with only 9 other cars on track might get a bit boring after a while

    This post is enough, though the caveat is we are on the verge of running one or two rooms. More sign ups will make the latter more likely

    All Drivers "Like" this post to confirm your entry.
    Given the number of sign ups plus several withdrawals over the past few weeks, we are on the verge of running either one full room or two smaller rooms. Therefore I need confirmation from all entries that you do indeed intend to race on Sunday to help inform the decision on whether to run two rooms or not. Please like this post to confirm your entry

    Do to unforeseen circumstances I am now unable to race this event.
    I am really sorry, but it is out of my control.

    Either way I'm sure the event will be a success, enjoy and have fun.

    If it is two rooms I will race, if we get down to only 17 starters I'll pull out to allow one full room to run.

    As stated above, if it gets to one room, happy to step aside for the speedy boys or girls.

    Always the gentleman. @Steve Neilson also. I'd rather you raced, but will list you as reserves for now if you prefer

    In a normal race yes your very right, but even 8 will produce a gr8 race if the handicaps are accurate.
    Yourself especially being the back marker. You have the whole field to chase down and pass.
    It is better to have nobody miss out on what us basically a fun night of racing.
    In practice races over the 2 years we have had many gr8 under 8 car races under the format.
    Whichever way it works would love to see you try and win it from the rear like Jono in the first year with gr8 strat and a gr8 drive.

    Happy Bathurst Day!!!!

    I wanted to thank @Xtr3meNZer, @NAACS and a gigantic thanks to @UrsineSaturn9 for taking the admin and running of this whilst I was awol. It is very much appreciated as I am toey and super keen for a race, especially this one.
    Remember it is a handicap race, so drive to "your" race pace time, without mistakes, and your a podium chance. Thanks to all the entries and I hope everyone has a gr8 race tonight.
    Below are some final tips, and Regulations from the OP.


    **Please err to being over respectful on track to each other.
    This especially please for the higher Divs toward lower Divs and even visa versa.
    Be smart, battling won't help at any time in this race apart from the last few laps.
    Better to try and stay in a slipstream to save fuel, or work together bump drafting, than to battle or defend which will only cost you time.
    Also the specs have been set to open up a multitude of pit options for strategy/avoiding traffic. I have found another sweet spot for the car, it is more lively and requires more skill around the mountain.
    Pit entry and exit just do not impede, be careful of the game spitting you out to the right on exit and check for traffic upon exit.
    Your starting time/handicap is your responsibility to know, and to start at that time, not before.
    It is an honor system that can easily be checked after the race.

    **Make sure your room host is on your friends list to avoid any delays like sending late friend requests for room entry.


    Finally have a ripper day today, watching, and then an even better night tonight, racing.
