That or they're opening a tin of Glee.
So who’s ready for Nurburgring Nordschleife.
20.8 Klms and 154 corners per lap.
So that’s 154 chances to stuff up a qualifying lap. Which will be 1 out lap and 1 flying lap. 1 adventure on the grass or to the beach and it’s over.
Race will consist of 770 corners. That’s crazy.
See you there
Great, so many more chances to throw myself off the track.
Wish I could be there with you.
The title fight is on between myself, Peeter and yourself, with possible chances for Sparkle, Spleece, Emmo and doodah.
This is going to be interesting end to the season.
I know I have an ice cubes chance in Hell of taking the title. I threw that off into the sand and grass too many times to be a contender.
Very true. I got beat up. Result of poor qualifying.
This is my chance. Lol .
It’s all or nothing.
I just did a quick calculation, if the top 4 on the table don't show up for the final 2 rounds I might have a chance.
You just have to beat Peter P in both races, basically win them both unless he has a really bad race some where.
i don’t think that’s possible. He is quicker than me. He doesn’t slide the car lik3 I tend to thus getting better drive out of the corners.
Peeter mentioned that he is likely only able to attend Rd6, not both. I'll be back for Rd7.
Round 6: Nurburgring Nordschleife - 5 Laps - 17:00 Sunny - 21/11 Retro
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 :
Spoiler: 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.
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
IF YOUR DIVISION ALL AGREE, YOU MAY START QUALIFYING EARLY
RACE START TIME :
Spoiler: Race Start
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....
Spoiler: Sight check
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 :
Spoiler: 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 :
Spoiler: T1 L1
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 :
Spoiler: 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.
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 :
Spoiler: 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 worry about the entry lane line as it only separates the pit entry itself from the track. Just be careful not to hit the wall on either side.
PIT EXIT :
Spoiler: 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. (the second one furthest from you in the lane)
NOTE: Pitting is NOT COMPULSORY
BLUE FLAGS :
Spoiler: 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 :
Spoiler: Save 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 :
Spoiler: 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.
Spoiler: 'like' to attend
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
RETRO ROUND: Run a retro livery if you wish, and please post your livery in the forums!
A Reminder that @emmo46 is hosting this week as I'm not about.
Good luck all.
Blunty final lap 8:31.364
Steve Goof 8:32 152
Another poor performance from me, went off track in first 2 sectors of qually lap so started 6th about 10 seconds behind my PB. Had a couple of offs on first lap to drop back to 11th and then worked my way back to 7th. I'm driving like and old man.
Similar for me. Consistently inconsistent.
My pedals broke yesterday and I managed to pick up some second hand ones off Facebook an hour before the race started, I know "a bad workman blames his tools", but I only really got used to the feel of them on the last lap tonight.
Anyway I've still a solid chance of 4th in the championship and I would of taken that as a very successful season before we started.
That’s not good mate. At least you did everything you could to get out there.. a true competitor. I can imagine the stress you would have been under prior to the race. I had a similar thing happen a couple of seasons ago. Well done under the circumstances. Hope you finish strong
Got to be happy with 3rd. Had second but pushed too hard on the back half of last lap to find the grass then the fence onto the long straigh
Had a poor running in qualifying. Had a massive gap to the cars in front but they both ran of the track and I caught them and they wanted to race.
Great battle with beats early on. Tryd a couple of passes but he shut the door on me. Fell back a couple os seconds but caught back up and beats went slightly wide and I was able to capitalise. Follw$ repoo around and got in his drought on lap 3 and passed just before pits. We came out of pits ghosting each other but I got the break and slowly pulled away. Had almost 3 second lead when I binned it. Jonno was gone. Well done every one.
wow the beamer was fun around nurb still dunno how i did a pb on my last lap. not going away this weekend it is next week now but i was hoping i could do the last race in div1 cos i think i will have more battles and also then it would be a fantastic last race for jonno and ben in div2.
