Good race craft, etiquette is expected.  No contacts or absolute minimum.  Atleast 2 wheels on track  if gained a place due to contact  or going outside the track, track postion have to be given back.

 

No Bump drafting

 

No weaving in the straight, Leading car is allowed one move to defend the racing line.  Slipstream is set to weak its not going to be easy for the following car to draft past the car head.

Summary:

 

1. Buy a shiny new car, do oil change and put the required soft tires ( thats it! nothing else need to be done). Car will now have almost correct HP which will meet the lounge HP limit. you can run a lap or two to gain hp and use limiter to make it exact if you like.  Use Engine Limiter to reduce HP if car has more.

 

2. Only engine limiter and brake balance can be adjusted. Everything else is considered as tuning by GT5

 

3. Track reset.  Quali begins at 8:30 pm. No tuning so check tires = racing soft, check the driving aids and SRF = on and start your laps.

 

5. Quali ends at 8:55 pm.  I will note down the quali order.

 

Race start procedure

 

1. Track is reset again, Tire checks done for drivers carrying success penalty.

 

2. Drivers are lined on on turn 1 as per quali. Race is started immediately after.

 

Any late comers or anyone coming back into the lounge after disconnect will be tire checked if they are carrying success penalty,  Disconnect ( considered as Mechanical failure) and late arrivals will have to start at the back of the grid as part of the Race start procedure.

Hi Ken,  every week will be new race,  no point standings.  So it will be more like arrive and drive each week, new track,  new car.   so you can make it whenever you can.  Although preference will be given to regulars :robothappy:

I have interest, but Tuesday is not one of the nights I can guarantee I would be available, so I didn't want to put my name in... I'm lucky to be able to make MastrGT's Monday event...
