Manual Rolling Start Information:
Formation Point:

If you are unsure about the Manual Rolling Start procedure, please read the instructions and watch the explanatory video.

Notices:
● Starting order main race:
Normally we all start in the position we have qualified in. But since we have a starting order that is based on the top half from the the sprint race, we need to place ourselves correctly during the formation lap. When the lights go out, everybody starts to move slowly around 10mph (16kph). Remember to stay as far to the left or right on the track to make it easier for cars to pass. Remember your starting position (obviously) but also who is in the position right in front of you.
● Rules & regulations: Before you take to the track in the league race, make sure you are fully aware of the rules and regulations of the leagues. As a driver in our leagues, you are required to do your very best to ensure clean and fair racing at all times.
● No-shows: If you are unable to attend the race, please inform the League Coordinator and leave a post in this thread BEFORE the race takes place. Note the rules of participation here.
● Lobby settings: If you are unsure about the rest of the lobby settings that will be used, look here.
● Save your replay: As a means of helping the stewards with any enquiries, all drivers are required to save their race replays and keep it stored for at least one week after the race has taken place. If you are involved in an incident or see something during the race that you feel needs to be investigated, you are free to make a stewards enquiry - however if enquiries are submitted without replay or race footage available, it is likely we can't do anything.

Now that I screwed my race for the championship, it will just be about having fun on the track :)

I recently raced on this one with a rather good lobby. There is no surprise in saying that turn 3 is the most important part of the circuit – and is trickier than it looks, especially while in the pack with nowhere to look as a reference for your breaking point.

What I noticed is that most of the accidents come from turn 1. Thanks to the toe, the car behind can arrive quite faster than usual. If you don't break a little earlier then... you may not be able to turn right as you'd want to because of your speed. Then the car on your left, which is on a normal trajectory, will be forced to hit you. When you think that 3 or 4 tenth is what separates you from hero 'slipstreamer' to zero, it is really unfortunate for everybody.

I don't know how the tires will react in the haze but the front left will probably suffer a lot after 10/20 minutes of racing.

Monza short looks easy because the risks of stupid crashes are of course very far from what we experienced in France this week but this track is actually more difficult overall than it seems at first sight. And the wall is closer than you think out of turn 3!

Side note: I will consider it as a second home race so be prepared :p

@Khaled77 the best way to figure that out is to run 45min online lobby race and see how much fuel you get at start.
I think for this track we are good on fuel, but not sure.

I think this will be very close in quali and the races? My pb's in quali are 55.5 and 55.3 race and I don't think any improvement for me is possible? It should be good racing no matter what position you're fighting for. I'm looking forward to it. Good luck to everyone and enjoy!

Really not sure though. If I remember well the Clio can carry 35L maximum and we'll do around 42/43 laps. We'll probably burn about a litre per lap.

Anyone else has some info about this?

This will be very close racing indeed. I think most of the race depends on how we survive in turn 1. If there are no crashes and no damages to the cars, it will be pretty nice.

Don't think I'll make this last race tomorrow @Michel--NL .been suffering serious lag on ps4 since Friday night and just done a connection test on the ps4 and noticed my speed was way down, just done a speed test with my app on my phone and this confirmed it. Phone call to virgin media I think. Retarted router and still the same. Don't wanna ruin anyone's race tommorrw if I join with a rubbish connection. So think I'll sit this last race out and hopefully get the problem sorted before the next Gt3 season. Have a great race fellas. ️

@Michel--NL any idea how many liters should we add?
Don't know.

With the start you get 21 Liters. It is around 0.90 liter per round.
Now you need to calculate how fast you are, so you know how many laps you will do in 40 minutes :)
2400/56 (lap time) = 43 laps
43 laps x 0.90 = 38.7 total fuel.
Do an extra 21 liters and you are safe....think :rolleyes:

Amazing first race with @Tomji_ but I was so confused then than I was waiting for another invitation...

This season is full of mixed feelings for me ultimately, with some amazing moments but some catastrophic ones too :cry:

You're quick. On pure pace, you're probably the fastest guy this season. Shame you've had your issues. Hope to race you again in another championship.

Anyway. Wow. That second race was incredible for the first half. Thanks to @Pocoyoporsch and @Davidgrundstrom for keeping it clean. Was great fun and a shame the pitstops stopped that.

@RacingAtHome congrats for the win and solid performance today. Also well deserved championship win.
1sr race was better then I expected for me but then I lost 3rd place in last corner because of backmarkers crashed.
I had hopes for 2nd race but got rammed from behind in 1st corner of 2nd lap. Then I almost crashed in @Michel--NL who also had sone rough situation in 2nd corner. I lost all my hopes and motivation after that.
Overall it was nice series and i hope i will race some of you guys in other series.

Thanks, mate! Yeah I wish I could have fought a little bit more for the championship, I've learnt the hard way how to race here.

Congratulations for a well-deserved win and title, it was a pleasure to race with you and all the other drivers. I couldn't have wished a better first time in simracing to be honnest!

@RacingAtHome congrats for the championship (y)

Had a good first race with @McKinda. I felt sorry for not letting you pass to take over 3rd place after what happened in the very last corner with the backmarkers :(
This time I needed to think about my teammate.

Second race was not that good. Had an accident with @Tomji_ in the second lap. I watched the replay, think you didn't expected me there. From my view I though you know I was there and would take the corner a little wider :)
Rest of the race I was cruising solo..not much to tell about.
