Round three finds us at iconic MONZA !
Due to the nature of this track and the large grid numbers (awesome !) I am proposing a rolling manual start ! If you have raced here at SRO in any of the other events such as rf2 endurance ect.. you know what this means ! If you don't know this is how it works !
This series has been using the "short formation lap" where we are all lined up behind the start/finish line in sector 3 , as we move towards the start finish the lights go green and were off ! Ok ? Now when using a "MANUAL FORMATION LAP" we disregard the green lights meaning "DO NOT LAUNCH ON GREEN" and continue on to a pre determined starting point ! In this case we will be using the exit of Lesmos this should help to avoid the inevitable turn one pile up like we saw in the prep series race !
( and also seen in just about every other race start at Monza)
The drivers are to ignore the games green go , go calls as we pass the original start/finish and continue on at pace speed 120-140 kph max! threw the Variante Del Rettifilo chicaine (T1) , Veriante della Roggia (T 4-5) and finally threw Lesmos where the race will start at the exit of lesmos !
The only way this will work is if we are all on the same page so spread the word !
Make sure you have read all the SRO RULES!
This series allows 3 strikes before you are no longer able to participate in the events. However, it's at the discretion of the admins whether or not to apply additional discipline in addition to strikes, such as a drive-thru penalty.
This is going to be exciting! I like this place.
Wow 47 car entry list ! think that's the biggest online grid I've ever competed in. Will look amazing. Hope the discipline improves over the prep race or it could be carnage.
Been on the server a couple of times with full 28? 29? Grid races.
Just wondering on the naming of the server
SimRacingOnine / means nothing to those joining
SimRacingOnline.co.uk - join for free / would probably getting a few people look it up.
Just an idea.
Ya I used to use that on the public server ..Its coming down soon for the weekends event so I might change it back next time I launch the public server ..
Practice server is UP ! (out of public mode) Remember you need to use the search bar to find ALL pass worded servers in ACC
simply type simracingonline into the search bar !
Server will restart again @ 18:00 gmt on race day for official P1 ! (2hr session)
With such a large grid would it be an idea to extend qual to 20 or 25 minutes?
Yes I did want to do this but it will add time and extend the race start time , I still might make it 15 min if everyone's ok with a 5 min later start ..
Dig into the training time instead? Most will be online some time before qual anyway so grab 5 minutes from the practise session and have race start at the nominated time.
I don't want to start the Q session earlier than advertised ..
I have added 5 min to Q so the session will now be 15 min , hope this does not interfere with anyone's after race plans ! its better for all of us with a little more breathing room in Q ! Im hoping 5 min wont be a big deal .. but im not married LOL
Good, thanks. With that big a field 15 minutes is better .
Race day PW set on the Event page !
Are all tracks for this series 2018?
No ,they are random ..
Server restarted @ 18:00 for official practice P1 2 hr session !
Big mistake picking the Audi for this series, hated it from the start, so I unregistered for the series.
Can't race today. Somehow it won't unregister me in to signup list.
As i stated in another post I will allow 1 car change for these exact reasons! So if you still wan to race jump on in .. I have done this for 2 other drivers so lets go !
I think the grid locks on race day ., no worries we have room ! Thx for trying
