    Hi all, Welcome to Round 8 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.

    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.
    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.

    Unfortunately due to an unforeseen work related night out, I will now be unable to attend this race.

    As the clocks will once more be aligned at this point however, I hope that @Rob Milliken will be ok to take over admin duties for this final race.

    Yeah, hour changes 24th to 25th March, so the hour will be the same but with GMT+1 i guess, that's logical because times are GMT, which means based on UK, Portugal, etçª time...

    Rob, you and the other Admins have already had this discussion and you knew that all existing series race times will change to BST i.e. GMT+1 next weekend and the time label on SRO Championship pages will change to reflect that. Your timezone will then be back in-sync with SRO so you will be able to attend all your entered races as normal.

    The race start in Italy will still be at 22:00 as all published race times at SRO will change from GMT to BST after the clock change this coming weekend, which also happens in Europe :) Italy is of course 1 hr ahead of the UK

  10. How fair is AC sim. Looking into driving style of many aliens I mentioned that wheel lock is extreme at corner entry. Look at the screen below. It almost full right lock. AC tire model behaves with initial under-steer and then with extra-grip behavior. Your thoughts guys?
