    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.

    • 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 :)

    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.

    What a horror show of a race. It started badly with poor judgement of traffic during qualifying followed by an unfortunate T1 incident on lap 2. Then a stupid looping on the quick right curve which I am going to blame on damage to the rear wing (nothing to do with a lack of talent ) followed by error on error for the next 55 minutes :D

    But somehow finished in the top 10 o_O So what happened to everyone else? And what was the deal with all the speeding penalties? And why does the race director have a grudge against Ingersoll?

    These are questions that demand answers!

    Very good good Mael!! Especially if you think was a :):):):) of a race lolol.
    I had a ball until i pitted.I had a ball cause everyone behaved realistic on the track and this is something not to take for granted these days.
    i was on a good mood on the wet and i did not make serious mistakes,and when the manager told me to take the dry tyres i pitted in 18th position(good :):):):) lol) i left lattanzio behind me and it was a shame because i wanted to challenge him:laugh:

    Unfortunately the mech decided not to change tyres and when i left the pits i had super hot and worn wet tyres.I tried to pit again but the fridge was calling me and so i grabbed a beer.
    I will investigate why they did not. I started with the race set up ready for tyres etc but when i saw was a wet first stint i ticked wet for the first stint leaving dry tyres for the pit stop,,,,dunno but HEY It was fun guys thx a lot!!!!!

    My usual strategy is to qualify poorly (not by choice) then make up positions in the race. Thanks to @Bruno Gallo magic setups, I managed to qualify a lot better, but of course that meant I was destined to lose positions in the race. Managed to pit 3 times, each at the perfect transition time for weather, but somehow put on the opposite tyres of what was needed. Started on drys, pitted and put on wets just as it dried up, then pitted again to put on drys as the rain came down again. Apologies to @Gabriel Ingersoll for blocking the track. Was still great fun as always racing with you guys.

    Geez @Mael why is it when you have a shocker you still make it into the top 10?! and Silver 3rd! I think you've forgotten how to actually have a shocker! Look back through my season and you'll see how it's done properly :D

    So how did this race go for me? Well let's see. I'd been on the pace here all week then @c4rLo5 snuck up and pinched my Silver class pole position dammit! :eek::poop: Then even though I had the best Silver pace in the race and a well executed 'safe' strat @WALLZY just waltzed up with his luckily executed 'risky' strategy and pinched my Silver win dammit! :mad::poop:

    But seriously, this race was super fun! I qualified 10th and then was lucky at T1 lap 1 as the outside lane got a free pass to miss the carnage. Before long I was in 5th sitting in my own bubble. I pushed the wets in the dry spell a bit then pitted for dry's mid race. I then had fun pushing hard to make some ground before the forecast rain hit. When it did I pitted from 2nd to grab wets and came out 6th. I was fine with that but after a while realised that Wallzy had played the devil's card and wasn't pitting again - well played mate! Congrats on the outright 3rd! I managed to run into @CornfordCaster as he made a good move passing me but we both got away with it - sorry again for that. So I was happy with 6th and P2 in Silver - fully aware that I benefitted from the misfortune of quite a few other drivers. Better luck next time.
