    It's been a long break and I know you boys are keen for some running. What we are going to do is a 7 race series as per normal starting on the 31/7/17. All the preliminary details will be listed below.

    For a little bit of a mix up, kinda like the F1 drivers from years gone past, I thought we could run a parallel series. So, the other series on the ROOZ forum will do a "Meet and Greet" event the week before and there is an event the week after the last round. AC on the PC doesn't normal do these. On top of this, for this series we are having a bye round for Father's day. As AC on the PC runs on a Monday, it won't effect us as it will the other series. So I figure we have 4 rounds to run before, in between and after the normal series. So starting tomorrow, the 17th of July, we will begin 11 straight weeks of banging wheels!!

    Obviously this is late notice, but what else are you doing on a Monday night?? Now, as incentive to run the parallel series, those who run all 4 events will receive 2 bonus tickets in the end of season draw. Those who run at least 2 events will get 1 bonus ticket. Plus you get to try a few things and bang wheels for 11 weeks!!

    Round -1: 17/7/17
    Celica TS 185
    Sprint round - Red Bull Ring GP. 11 Laps x 2. Reverse grid race 2.
    Fuel and tyres 100%. Rest as per usual @QC. Or whatever you think works best.

    Round 0: 24/7/17
    Porsche 962C Short Tail
    Normal round - Donnington Park GP. 29 Laps.
    Fuel etc TBA.

    Round 1: 31/7/17
    Audi TT RS (VLN)
    tbc

    Round 2: 7/8/17
    Audi TT RS (VLN)
    tbc

    Round 3: 14/8/17
    Audi TT RS (VLN)
    tbc

    Round 4: 21/8/17
    Audi TT RS (VLN)
    tbc

    Round 5: 28/8/17
    Audi TT RS (VLN)
    tbc

    Round 5.5: 4/9/17
    Multi-class Event. Monza. 25 Laps.
    Ferrari F312T 1975 and Praga P1
    Cars will be assigned as per season standings - top 3 and bottom 3 pick their weapons. The rest will be distributed closer to the date.

    Round 6: 11/9/17

    Round 7: 18/9/17

    Round 00: 25/9/17
    Nordschleife. 9 Laps.
    Multi-Car Enduro: McLaren P1, Ferrari FXX K, Ferrari La Ferrari.

    Housekeeping: The plan will be to have the rooms open from 8.30pm AEST and to start qualifying at 9pm. There will be 10-15 minutes of qualifying depending on the length of the track, and then into the race, usually around 45 minutes. We will be running 1 room again this season so tracks are again being considered that can cater for 30 drivers. Thanks to the guru that is QC and his mastery of the servers, there will be enough slots and rooms available for practice during the week. There will still be an individual and team championship as per previous seasons. An added bonus is that everyone who enters also will be placed in one of the Raceonoz.com Teams - so you will be part of main team championship run across AC, GT6, F1 and PCars and have a chance to win a prize at the end of season draw!!!!!!

    Compulsory pit stops for normal and enduro rounds only.

    Points
    The points system will be managed by our masters of charts, and will be posted within the ladder section at the top of the website, and updated weekly. The points and ballast will be distributed as per below:

    This season will also see us using a bonus point system with Fastest Lap (FL) and Most Consistent (MC) for each room gaining an extra point. ie Win+MC+FL=42 points for the round. MC will be as per simresults, with highest gross MC across both sprint races used for determining overall MC.

    There is a provision for a drop round this season. Every driver will have their worst performance dropped from their overall championship total. In the case that the first round of the season is DNS and likely the drop, then any ballast earned in round 2 by finishing in the top 5 will be multiplied by 1.5. This means a first place will see you earn 53kg rather than 35kg.

    The sprint round this season will see a full qual and practise session for the first race, and a 10min qual only for race 2. The points will be distributed to each driver for both races to come up with placings for the entire round. REVERSE GRID RACE 2 - HALF POINTS! Where 2 drivers finish on the same points, the driver who finishes in a higher place over the 2 races will be given the higher placing. Where this is the same, the driver with the fastest lap over the 2 races will finish in the higher position for the round. FL and MC bonus points will be given to the driver(s) with the best result over the 2 races.

    Success Ballast System:
    We have experimented with a success ballast system and is continues to be shaped as each season goes on. We are running a slightly modified version this season, but as always we are hoping to keep the racing close. Here is the system for this season and it will be used across both divisions:

    Your penalty is carried over, but is halved in every subsequent race. Eg - Finish 2nd, carry 30kg into the next race. Then finish 3rd, carry 40kg into the next race. And so on. The maximum ballast any driver can carry is 53kg, 150% of 1st place ballast, equivalent to 2 wins in a row. You must attend the race to have your ballast halved, which means if you miss a round your ballast will be sitting there waiting in the back of your rocket the next time you race.

    Voice chat
    This season we will be using DISCORD so get the app and keep an eye out for the instant invites if you haven't been in the Raceonoz server yet. The permalink is still working: https://discord.gg/JB257mk

    Skins (Liveries):
    If you wish to run your own skin, great. We would love to see the teams running their own skins again this season. Please let me know and share your skin with us by 10pm on the Sunday night prior to round 1.

    I will endevour to fill in the rest of the details asap. If there are any glaring omissions or tracks that are completely buggy let me know. OK, I'm off to bed

    Whats wrong with you guys! A silly tv show or door to door racing??!?!

    Seriously though, losing quality drivers, is it possible to maybe change the dates we race? I would be happy. :)

    I'm obsessed with GOT, but we just watch it asap when we get home before the race, if you start by 7/730 you'll be sweet. I download it during the day and have it all set to go. It tricky but can be done.

    Porsche short-tail is def a handle to drive. I just can't get used to driving turbo cars, apply throttle on corner exit and then bam... turbo kicks in and massive oversteer. Going to be a tricky night!
