Ginetta Week 2 - Oulton Park

Sorry, a tad late with the sign in thread.

This week, we're moving up to Cheshire and into May. Judging by practice, you'll get to watch a virtual dawn as you race... unless the random weather gods dictate otherwise. Seems to be quite an interesting little track this one with myself, Jamesy and smokin all struggling with different corners. Could make for some interesting racing with a bit of luck.

It seems that syncing the weather to the race is just causing all random slots to come up clear, so this week we'll be going at 5xreal time for the weather (similar to the GT3s).

Race Details
Track: Oulton Park Fosters
Real Race Date: Sunday 8th November 2015, 9pm
In-game Race Date: 1st May 2015, 6am

Event Structure
Time advance: x 5
Weather time: x 5
Fuel use: On
Tyre wear: x2
Damage: visual
Flags penalties on (watch them starts!)

Practice : 10 mins
Qually: 10 mins
Warm up 5 mins ( use for break)
Race: 25 Laps (approx 30 minutes)

Weather
4 weather slots,
1) "Heavy Cloud"
2) Random
3) Random
4) Random

Point system
This system applies for the entire series, no Bernie-style double points here:
1st: 10 points
2nd: 8 points
3rd: 6 points
4th: 5 points
5th: 4 points
6th: 3 points
7th: 2 points
8th: 1 points

Please only sign on if you have the intention of racing.

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".

To here

Incidentally, just a heads up that work commitments will mean it will probably take me a couple of days to get the results uploaded and table updated.

Of course.

Added you to the list. You may have your own tune, but just be aware that if you use the one I posted it doesn't work too well around Oulton Park. From memory, you'll want to drop the rear ride height a little and stiffen the rear sway bar a click, both of which should help.

Got the results up now - sorry for the delay in this but wasn't going to hang around typing them in when I had to be up before 5am the next day.

Looks like smokin is establishing an early lead in the series, so I think it's fair to say experience is triumphing at the moment. But Jamesy had the pace, and if he gets his pit stops sorted is going to be hard to beat. And when Slim recovers from his illness the rest of us are in trouble...

Very close racing at first - I think there were about two second between the four of us until I spun off on lap 6. Fortunately, John and smokin decided to crash on the next lap and rejoin me. Just wish I could reduce that front tyre wear as the tread had pretty much gone from my front left with 6 laps still to go.
