    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.

    I always enjoy Imola. Even the prospect of 2 hours there didn't worry me. It was also a perfect way to try out my new vid card and see if the huge expense was somewhat justified.

    It was! :D Even after dropping 7 positions on lap 1 on a track notorious for a lack of overtaking opportunities I was enjoying it. The drivers I was battling with were racing really well and I had to work hard for each pass. After 2 hours I actually felt less drained than any previous long race so maybe the clearer and faster visuals helped.

    I felt I had enough pace to maybe graze the top 10 with some luck. I qualified 15th with a PB so I was fine with that. Unfortunately on the first lap I undid that decent qualy at Tosa (T7). Battling with @Mael I tried to hold tight on the inside line but I understeered at low speed into his door. I half spun to the inside while he was able to carry on, but as I ended up on the grass it was a slow recovery and I lost 7 positions. Sorry about the tap Mael. At the time I wasn't sure if you'd given me enough room but later when I saw the replay it was clear you had. It was a shame as it robbed us of a tight battle that might have been race long! In the end I couldn't quite close down the gap but wasn't far away :) . I ended up 12th (P2 in Silver).

    Well done to all those drivers who made it through the 2 hours.

    I were probably too conservative for those first few corners slowing too much in front of you. Carrying damage for 2 hours are just no fun so tried very hard to avoid any!

    For me was a pretty hectic race battling lots of people. With the Bentley was just not happy with my setup, fish-tailing out of every corner :(. it took a lot of concentration just to stay on the black stuff. Thus I fairly early on decided to go conservative, slow and steady. So slow in fact that Frost did not even notice me as he flew past. Had a battle with Art for a few laps, he is from now on to be known "Mr Iceman" Vandelay, pretty sure he does not feel any pressure.

    Then ran out of juice for the last 20 minutes, had to work hard to stay (just) ahead of @krunch and a fast 2-stopping Frosty.

    Onward to Barcelona and some toasted left front tires!!
