As of this round we will be clamping down on people no-showing without announcing prior to the race.

The rules haven't been implemented for whatever reason so far in our league, but it's a big reason there are always depleted grids.

There isn't a problem with you not being able to make a race, just let us know in advance and we can call up a reserve for that round.
Post in these race threads if you cannot attend.

The league operates a 3 strikes and you are out policy.

Expect more driver announcements this week.


On a personal note, this is going to be the most exciting race of the season I think! Can't wait :D

can I just ask why some don't do the formation lap? Doesn't seem fair considering those who don't will have less tyre wear

Is there not a rule against this?

I read somewhere a while ago that the formation lap has no bearing on the condition you start the race. You can't attain any damage, make no difference to tyre heat or tyre wear.

However if the rules state it must be completed people should take more care to navigate the lap properly. I can't remember the last time I wasn't hit on the formation lap.

Yeah you do get tyre wear from the formation lap (In my experience). I qualified in a race with less than 8% on all try's and by the end of the formation lap some were above 10%

seen a thread in the stewards about this just now,
perhaps make everyone aware they need to participate in the formation.

it's very easy to see who doesn't considering your crawling past there stationary car at 2mph

Race Update

Announced absences:

@maxtheracer
@Jameswood129

Other news:

@Jorge to serve a qualifying ban for incidents at the British Grand Prix in round 10.

The stewards have announced that @maxtheracer has received a 20 second time penalty and 10 penalty points for causing a major collision with @denzamo at the German Grand Prix.
This changes his finishing position from 3rd to 5th, with @B5NCO moving up to 3rd and myself moving to 4th.

The stewards also announced that the incidents form the German Grand Prix between @AOR Perez & @Adibales and @AOR Perez & @Jameswood129 require no further action.

We should have enough :)

of the 21 drivers, @Dan Pursall, @Jorge, @CheepFX wont probably turn up, and @Jameswood129 and @B5NCO @maxtheracer cant race today.That would leave us with 15 drivers which should be good enough :)
[DOUBLEPOST=1485702483][/DOUBLEPOST]Plus after this race time will run out and Dan Pursall and Jorge will be placed on the blacklist, so we should be able to get 2 more new drivers who will consistently turn up :)
