Ginetta Week 1 - Brands Hatch

Standard sign-in thread.

The series kicks off on the virtual April Fool's day. The early start means a good chunk of qualifying and the start of the race will be in the dark, so prepare to get those headlights switched on. With a bit of luck, we may get to see a picturesque break of dawn... or if we're unlucky the inside of a cloud.

SOME RULES AND GUIDELINES FOR ALL


CONNECTION ISSUES

Here is a guide to sorting out your lobbies as fast as possible when connection problems are evident.
Connection Issues - What to do - Please read
Restarts/Safety car
In the race:

If a crash happens on lap 1 affecting 3 or more drivers then please call out that an accident has happened. The host will call a restart and everyone can quit to the lobby once the host confirms the restart. Quit before at your own peril

If during the race there is an incident involving 4 cars the host may call for a safety car procedure to be used. This will involve the lead driver slowing down to a speed that allows the other drivers to catch back up, and the field to therefore re-group. ONLY the host can call this and it should only be used in exceptional circumstances. During a safety car phase drivers are not allowed to overtake but can pit in to change tyres/fix damage.

All drivers need to make sure they have signed the racing etiquette thread otherwise you can’t race.

Can all Drivers NOTE: 2 wheels to remain on the tarmac at all times (unless you go into the litter ) a minor off maybe noted as racing but no gain is to had either in time or places. If you cut corners over and over expect a penalty, you have been warned. If you suspect or see corner cutting, report it to Smokin, Stewards or even other Mods. Save a replay and note time, place and who.

All aids will be allowed other than auto brakes. If you choose "Real" assists, it will be the same as running with "none".

Racers:
Spiny
Smokin
Slim
Jamesy

I'll be watching the F1 again. So as long as it doesn't over run should be fine to make the start.

I presume it starts same time as Austin so should be over around 8.40ish? I'll send an invite anyway - gives you the chance to drop in for qually/race if things run late.

Hmm, it seems that the Donington tune didn't work too well around here. In the end, stiffening the rear springs helped a bit in stopping it spinning around, but I was lucky that John G didn't put enough fuel in. Congratulations to smokin on getting the win - what with Slim having fuel issues too and Jamesy separating them, it looks like an interesting start to the season.

Having a quick look on the official PCars forums, it seems that Syncing the weather to the race can make all the "random" slots clear. As such, from next week instead of syncing to the race I'll set the weather on 5x speed (at least until a patch comes out for that).
