Click the image to open in full size.
Yas Marina North
Sunday 22nd March
Race 1 sprint = Random (as much as it is in 5 ) approx 15 mins

Interval/ciggie/fetch a beer/comfort break for 5 mins

Race 2 feature = Random with 5% loss to the top driver (or more depending on entry) Pit stop between lap 3 and lap 10inc Approx 30 to 35 mins
Details below



CHANGING CARS

There will be changing of cars in this series. However i would try and encourage staying in 1 car to keep a nice mix of cars. Please post up if changing car

SIGN-IN PROCEDURE

The sign in thread will go up approximately five or six days before the race. Each competitor should sign into this thread.

If a driver is unable to race in any one week, he should sign "out" in the sign-in. At least we will know if worth racing or not.
PITS
Race 2 will feature pit stops and pit window will be decided prior to race night

INCIDENTS

All on track incidents involving 2 or more cars within the first 5 mins or so will trigger a safety car

Please note that this series is being run with cosmetic damage; although this will allow some tapping, we dont expect drivers to behave likes a public hopper !

SAFETY CAR PROCEDURE


The lead car will lead the pack around at a safe, steady speed not exceeding 60mph until the entire field is in line. Cars should maintain a safe distance to the car in front and should not engage in weaving or sudden acceleration of braking as this is likely to lead to accidents. Any drivers making a pit stop under safety car conditions must rejoin the field at the back of the pack.

When the last driver(s) have caught up with the pack, he should call it. The restart will occur ONLY after you pass start finish line. NO overtaking until you have passed the start finish please.

PENALTIES

We will try and do without post race penalties unless there is obvious foul play such as but not limited to:

Corner cutting to gain time/place on multiple occasions
Tap to pass without giving place back
Ramming - see above
Not paying attention to lobby instructions on multiple occasions

Assists
All/any assists will be allowed other than auto brakes and STM

POINTS

Thoroughly enjoyed that. Barring the seemingly random time spent in the pits!

It was good fun. Surprised to get two second places after a fairly poor pre-season so nice to see I ended up on the pace after all. But best of all was seeing that the cars seemed more or less even - for a while I worried that this was going to turn into a BMW vs. Infiniti championship, but no Infiniti and the Civic and the Focus seemed more or less on the BMW pace.

Tried to do a highlights package for the second race, but unfortunately had a few kinect issues so didn't catch most of the pit exits. If I'd realised we're no longer limited to 5 "record that's" per clip I'd have got the race end in as well.

Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.

The first race had more action in and would have made a better video, but like a clot I didn't save the replay from that. Annoyingly, it doesn't seem to thumbnail clips anymore (unless I'm missing something), so you'll have to make do with the link above.

Can't add to your rep, but thanks anyway.

I think if I do one of those again, I will need to put in some transitions to give it a bit of structure. And sort out a Youtube account I guess...
