    Race Notes
    Do not be a moron and crash people out on lap 1. This is a 78 lap race. Conduct yourselves appropriately (and remember this is a club race and should be raced in that spirit). I will come down hard on sloppy over-aggressive racing by handing out race suspensions (yes, you can still be banned even as a Premium member if you break our racing rules). People spend time practising and preparing for a race, they don't need to be taken out by a low percentage move. I am saying this very clearly and frankly so there is no confusion and to avoid a repeat of the aggression we saw in our recent V8 event. If you want longer races like this, please keep this in mind.

    On the pit exit, check your mirrors. Traffic on the track have priority over you re-entering. Additionally, I recommend doing a little practice with a grid of AI cars for a few laps; it is very different from hot lapping and the experience of running in packs of cars will help keep the event clean and fun for everyone.

    Although written for the Formula Vees, the Pit Stop Guide here may be useful if you are unfamiliar with pitting.

    Let's fill up the grid! You can ask other drivers to practice or race with you by using the tag function of the forum. Just type an @ directly followed by the user name and this person will receive a notification.

    Our racing clubs are foremost meant to gain online experience so please help other drivers out when they have questions about the event, the car, the track, the setup or a combination. This is not a league race, it's for some fun, so please join us on TeamSpeak and build a little community spirit!

    Priority Access
    In case of a large amount of sign-ups premium members are given priority access to enter this event. Premium members please sign up at least 24 hours in advance to be given priority; I won't kick a non-premium member off the list if your sign up is very late. Don't forget Licensed memberships are being phased out.

    Full week, great!
    In my opinion, long runs like this could be made to Saturday. Any chance of change?

    Thought I'd try a Friday this time. Don't worry, there'll be long Saturday races often now we're going every day.

    Is this a joke ? It's a Reiza track and you've got it in the game if you updated to v1.25.

    Ok. I'll have a go, could be one of my last races at RD and it looks like a fun event, and a track from SA helps.
