    SUPPLEMENTARY RULES
    • 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 causing a disadvantage to 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!
    GENERAL NOTES
    • 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 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 the event.

    CUSTOM PAINTED SKINS
    The recent v1.8 update has changed the way in which custom liveries are implemented enabling us to re-enable their use in our league. In short, ACC now creates .dds files which are preload the into memory thus reducing or eliminating the serious join lag I'm sure we've all experienced in the past.

    Livery submissions are currently closed but may be opened at the mid point of the season for a second round of submission or updates.

    This short video linked below contains pretty much everything you need to know about sharing custom liveries and it is strongly recommended viewing.

    Thanks for racing at RaceOnOz

    I had OK pace here, with Easter's setup. "Only" 1.7 secs off the pace. But I got crunched in the opening lap accident, meeting a Porsche facing the wrong way on the track (with "what's the point?" thoughts at the time). I carried on, but with some front damage it felt really understeery, and I came off at Island bend and ended up behind the tyre bundles at the hairpin, at which point I rejoined 39/39. Then I pitted very early for repairs. After that, the racing was good fun, passing a few guys, ended up in a fun battle with J. Mac and Dean Karki, all swapping positions with a few mistakes here and there and lapping cars coming through. My tyres were starting to feel a bit miserable at the end after my early stop. Happy with finishing 19th after being 39/39.

    Tough one, qualifying in the midfield was never going to make for an easy race. But after the initial first few laps bumping and grinding I started to feel comfortable with only a bit of rear wing damage making the Bentley a bit nervous.

    Then got @krunch :p while trying to manage backmarkers around the 20 minute mark. Went for the forced early pit stop to repair 17s of damage,but made it much worse by forgetting the pit box was one of the first ones. Some dramatic reversing action accompanied by cursing & spluttering was followed (luckily) by very enjoyable racing in the second half of the race. Special thanks to Gabriel for the close battle until the overeager marshal's intervened with a drive through penalty.

    My feeling was more like .. REVENGE I WANT REVENGE!!!!!!

    Yeah again really sorry Mael :oops:

    I thought I'd left enough braking space but got caught out by your slower turn-in speed which I presume was due to the car in front of you. Tried to miss you at the last second but to no avail. I didn't realise until after the race that you were hit by Ingersoll after I hit you. That was really bad luck for both of you. My excuse is that the massive (and ugly) arse on that bloody Bentley meant I couldn't see how close the car in front of you was! Seriously put that thing on a diet! :speechless::D

    Ingersoll and me had quite a good race until he got a penalty for track cuts. I hope the person who took out the brake marker at the chicane gets a BIG penalty for the next race :mad:

    That's why you should always use shadows as brake markers :cautious:
