    Hi all, Welcome to Round 5 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

    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.

    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.

    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.
    Then once on track, go to the right hand menu that appears at the edge of the screen and tick the Pit Lane Penalty icon to ensure you are notified on track of any warnings or penalties received.

    And I put it in the wrong thread lol

    Still the details above are true.
  8. hi all, just joined this community and champ. thanks for hosting AC F3 races, it is so hard to find open wheel champs in AC.
    few questions:
    1. server for practice only available on race day? I tried to connect yesterday but didn't find it
    2. do you use Teamspeak during race day? I found Teamspeak server address, so I know how to connect

    HI and welcome
    The server goes up a few days before the event and will be highlighted when it is up in this thread.
    Teamspeak is used but not mandatory, we had four of us on their in the last race.

    Don't forget to download and install the PLP app as detailed above.

    Good luck
  10. I installed PLP and tried to test it. When I run out of track it shows me warning, but I don't see amount of cuts, so how to understand that I have more than 3 cuts and need to run through the pit lane? thx
  11. btw - this app I created for AC please try to see if you find it useful.

    It is only a warning when in practice.

    When you get to a race it will start adding up.

    Ok so no excuses this week, all the info is available for the Pit Lane Penalty App installation and operation, please make sure you install and are able to see this via the right hand menu activation so you can see the messaging on screen.

    Anyone receiving a penalty and not taking it will be penalised so keep it on track and enjoy the race.

    Believe it is normally set for 1 or 2 pm.

    I had to go and turn down glare as it was on full and could not see a thing into T1 haha.

    Expect it to be ok for the race though
  20. cool, thx. couple other questions:
    1. I see that world-detail in not full and dynamically rendered. Is that on server-side managed also as my own setting is full world-detail
    2. do you have normally pit-stops during the race? I watched reply from prev race and camera-car didn't take any pitstops
