Ginettas Week 4 - SONOMA GP

As we move into the second half of the season, we're unfortunately having to make a change of track due to the full Cadwell not being available for private races in GT cars And with the available Cadwell having no pits, I was tempted to go with John's suggestion of turning off tyre wear (particularly with me being one of the worst for it), but instead we will be racing at Sonoma GP. For those of you remembering it from FM4, it's a completely different track in PCars with lots more blind crests and a much greater sense of elevation. I don't know if it's more accurate in PCars than in FM4, but for me the PCars version wins by a mile in the enjoyment stakes. As for the race, I'm praying for some rain as the heat of a mid-day July race in sunny California is really going to start eating into those tyres otherwise.

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".

Took you up to joint second in the series too. Smokin running away in 1st, but only 4 points separating the other four of us.

Appalling nights racing for me, that's what happens when you don't turn the xbox on for a week! I was running similar pace to John up front, never managed a 49 though so grats on that and the win. Just couldn't stop throwing it off the track, should have just consolidated 2nd place rather than pushing too hard for a 49.

Slim and I had a decent battle but both threw it away TWICE into the weeds pushing when no real need. John G kept trouble free out front for long overdue win. Spiny was the quietest and still picked up a lucky 2nd !

Trouble free, and consistently good pace, let's get it right.

I don't get the glory of pole, plus fastest lap that often, I plan on revelling in it.
