AOR PCars PC Ginetta GT5 S1 T2 Champion
- Feb 28, 2018
I tried to run to the end with one set of tires on Mondays practice session and gave up at about lap 25. It probably depends on your car, setup and driving style.Hey guys, Is it only me or is anyone else also having no problems managing the tires to the end? I just did a full 36 Laps and still got more tire left than you after 7 or so. Am I doing something very wrong here? 1:37.8 best lap with 1:39s race pace. Today 1st practise day...
Just a heads up. At previous races this season we have relied on the (much improved since Patch 7) in-game track limit detection/penalties to police the official AOR 'white line' rules (below). This has, in my opinion, worked well, however with a wet track, the in-game detection doesn't work anywhere near as well, if at all.
Regardless of what the game lets you off with in the wet, the official AOR rules still apply (as they do at all races), and are required to be followed regardless of what the game lets you off with:
Anyone who took part in Season 9/10 will be familiar with following these without the game to help you out. For anyone new to AOR for Season 11, just drive fair, don't take the ****, and if in doubt, give a lift to clear any time gained, and everything should be cool.1.4 Corner cutting/track extending
● Stay within the track boundaries with at least two tyres at all times. The track boundaries are defined by the white lines, not by the edge of the kerbs.
However, we acknowledge that the racing line at times extends across kerbs or astroturf. A driver briefing will be added to each round, informing of any deviations from the "white line rule."
Cutting corners, or extending the track, to gain an advantage is not allowed. Drivers found to be persistently breaking this rule will be penalised retrospectively.
● If you overtake another driver with all four wheels off track, or as a consequence of cutting a corner, you must slow down and give the position back.
● The odd misjudgement of a corner can happen, but if you accidentally gain an advantage by going outside the track limits, you are expected to back off to an extent that clearly negates any advantage gained. Failing to do this puts you at the risk of being penalised in game, however if it fails to penalise you, an enquiry can be opened for the stewards to review.
● If a driver is reported to the stewards for a breach of this rule, it is up to the stewards' discretion as to whether they feel the driver has abused the track limits to an extent where a penalty is justified, and if so what type of penalty is appropriate to be handed out. This will depend on the severity and frequency of the cuts. The bottom line is, if you want to make sure you are not in danger of being awarded a stewards penalty, make sure you don't gain time from leaving the track limits throughout qualifying and the race.
● If track limits are exceeded, you need to very clearly demonstrate that you have lost any time gained by lifting completely off throttle for the amount of time you were outside the white lines. This makes it easier to distinguish that an attempt was made to negate any advantage, in any replays or footage provided to the stewards after the race.
The in-game system is pretty accurate, howeverif you are found to still be exceeding track limits regularly, even when coming off throttle to give up any advantage, or not lifting off throttle for long enough, you can still be penalised after the race.
