    Hi all, Welcome to Round 4 of the TNC Euro F3 Series.

    I am delighted to bring my racing events to SRO, having run series previously for many years at Race2Play.

    So as most of you who have raced with me before will know, play fair and we will have a great series.

    All SRO Rules are in play so please bear that mind and ensure you and all other competitors have an enjoyable event.

    Good luck all!

    With immediate effect all drivers are expected to download and install the following app

    https://www.simracingonline.co.uk/resources/pit-lane-penalty-plp.363/

    This app is now mandatory for all Assetto Corsa events.

    Previously it was optional, but several including myself had been using it and indeed been penalised by it.

    To make it a level playing field, all drivers are now required to have the app installed.

    Please ensure this is done in very good time for this event.

    Just to inform that when we join server, on loading screen, it says "Dallara F307", i guess we're racing with the F312, so just wondering if there is some problem or it's just normal. Car looks the same, couldn't find any differences. Also, in RSR livetiming some "F317" also appears on "CARS" tab...

    Ya its some kind of typo error i think .. in the server files it says F312 .. So far all the events have been the exact same cfg files with only the track being changed so it must be a glitch in the MP lobby , I have searched all the cars in the servers CAR folder and there is only 1 Dallara F312 entry and that's also exactly whats in the server cfg files ..

    A reminder to you all to please install into game the Pit Lane Penalty app so we have a level playing field for all.

    Pit Lane Penalty is an app which detects race track cutting.
    It will give you 3 warnings of cutting the track limits, and on the 4th occasion, will issue you with a drive-thrupenalty.
    You have 3 laps to serve this drive-thru.
    You can take your penalty at the same time as a pit stop (Something that cannot be avoided at this time).

    Criteria the system uses for detecting track cuts:-
    • Track cutting is defined as 3 or more wheels out of the track, using the AC cut detection.
    • Only cuts over 50 kph are registered.
    • If you are off-track for more than 1.3 seconds, or slow down to less than 90% of your track exit speed at any time while off-track before re-entering, a cut won't be registered. This is to stop accidents from registering as cuts. The app does detect high speed cuts that last longer than 1.3 seconds, where you don't slow down, as well.

    Installation
    Unzip the app into your Assetto Corsa root directory. Typically:-
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa

    Start Assetto Corsa, navigate to OPTIONS > GENERAL and then put a check next to PitLanePenalty to enable the app.

    Not my greatest race, saw Alessio and Rui getting together into T1, but screwed it up myself dropping down to fifth or sixth.

    Then a battle to get back into it as these do not really draft too well.

    Grats to Rui on the win, normal service resumed.

    Any issues please PM me or raise a protest, I know the guys on TS had a few contacts but sorted it out between themselves, good stuff.

    ADMIN!

    I noted tonight that during the race Lorence did receive a drive thru penalty for cutting, but did not take it.

    However although this was registered by the App, the instructions above do not explicitly state that you ALSO need to, when in car, go to the right hand menu that appears when you move your mouse across to the edge of the screen, and tick the Pit Lane Penalty flag. This will then display warnings on screen.

    If you do not have that ticked and do not have chat displayed, you would not know that you had got a penalty.

    Therefore on this occasion we will waive a penalty as it was not clear completely, and update the instructions to include this step.

    Nick

    Good race. It's a messy first lap as i've been hit twice but that's part of the excitement and i had a good fight with Nick and specially Roel. Just shame, I got punted with an invisible thing on the last lap my car just catapulted into the barrier (no sarcasm intended). :)[​IMG]

    Just one word... brilliant, i was guessing this will happen...

    I'm just waiting to see what admins will do with all the mess that happened during race. I hope the same level of commitment that happened with the last race with ME, because a serious precedent was open and from now on i hope to see serious penalties to some SERIOUS bad driving...

    Just want to apologise everyone the necessity of using that cutting penalty app, for sure it was my fault and it was mandatory to prevent cheaters like me.

    Thanks.
