Built in 1963, Zolder hosted the Formula One Belgian Grand Prix on 10 separate occasions in the 1970s and 1980s, as well as the 1980 Belgian motorcycle Grand Prix. At this time, mainly the Blancpain Sprint Series and the BRCC national championship hosted a race in Zolder. The 24 Hours of Zolder endurance event is also held as a stand-alone event around the end of August or the beginning of September.

Ok
After watching the replay of the start it has come to my attention that it seems like some of you didnt pay attention to the widget.


I know this was the first league race for some of you but this sort of start cant be acceptable in any league or public lobby to be honest,
There was i think 3 wide before the green flag had dropped and this should not happen if you pay attention to the widget, now i will give you a chance to correct this sort of start in the first race but it did ruin some peoples races and they should and will put enquiries in.

So please pay attention to the starting widget esspecially this week with the rain and if you go 3 wide into the first, second and probably third corner it will cause carnage.
I also noticed lag hits on that start so if you are lagging and are informed you have really bad lag you must leave the race.

Hopefully we will have a better race this week and remember be patient zolder is a hard track and with it being wet aswell will make it even more difficult

I still cant work out why I picked up a stop go penalty for the start. Black Porsche about 5th from the back...I was in formation. Oh well that's the way it goes I guess ;-)

You were out of your position. You must follow green zone on the widget, not the cars in front to not get a DT.

Guys, what's a good quali lap supposed to be? Best I've managed in hotlap is 1.37.2. I can't seem to go any faster in the wet :S

I managed a low 1.39 in practice yesterday.
It's very tricky to string together more than 3 or 4 laps without making a mistake though.
I think safety and consistency is better than raw speed, nearly everyone will make a mistake and lose 10secs each time.

Okay so in hindsight, that lap was in hotlap mode where apaprently everything is in perfect condition. I joined an AOR prac server and I was slower :p

Just done a high 1.38 after adjusting tyre pressures, that really makes a difference, I'm sure I can go about 0.3s quicker at the very least.

Thanks for pointing this out Morphee, there I was minding my own business when out of nowhere $#$ BAM #$#

I didn't want to worry the stewards as it was the first race and all. Luckily I drive the Bentley as my race would have been over!!

All the stewards enquiries from last week have been decided and closed, so for the race tonight the following penalties will be applied:

@wRECKz has accumulated 15 penalty points on his AOR licence so will recieve a drive through at zolder which will have to be served within the first 3 racing laps

@Ady Knotts has accumulated 15 penalty points on his AOR licence so will recieve a drive through at zolder which will have to be served within the first 3 racing laps
