    - Do not leave the track once Qualifying has started.
    - The Qualifying Session will be 15 Minutes long. Come to the pits once the chequered flag is out.
    - Between Practice and Qualifying, I will "reset" the track.
    - Drivers are allowed to swap tyres during Qualifying, however this must be done in a pitstop.
    - If the grid is not correct for the race, I will call a formation lap and all drivers must go to the correct position. A manual single file rolling start will commence when the leader accelerates out of the final corner.
    - If you make a pitstop, you are allowed to change tyres and add fuel.
    - Before the event, clear your cache in GT5 Settings (Settings, Miscellaneous and Network) and then restart your PS3. This is not mandatory but it will help you.
    - I will be on Teamspeak before, during and after the event. It is easier for me to pass information on Teamspeak rather than the PS3.

    Hi Stu
    Tuning = No, does this mean we can't make any tweaks even if it stays under the 600pp ?
    Cheers
    Gareth

    What happened boys, was is the dreaded diconnections? That was a really enjoyable race in parts. Funny how racing bumber to bumber can make you forget about braking for corners - think that happened to Stu and myself a couple of times - quite funny. :thumbsup:
    Cheers gents - shame we couldn't have completed.

    I got disconected on lap 17 or 18, it was a shame, i was really enjoying the race, especially after pitting, the car was felling really great with soft tires.
    I started on pole after Gareth exiting after to the lobby, i had a good start, then Gareth passed both me and Stuart, but Gareth spun in front of me and i passed him, after some time Stuart almost spun behind me and o was able to pull away a bit more, but there were troubles ahead and i ended up spinning on the "spoon" corner, i was passed by both Gareth and Stuart. I went on with the race, some more mistakes were made by all of us allowing for some overtakes making this an exciting race. Around lap 7 or 8 Stuart was disconected(?) and there were only me and Gareth left, on lap 10 (i think) Gareth was rigth in front of me and pitted, i went on and gained some times, but 2 or 3 laps after Gareth caugth me and passed me, i pitted at the end of lap 15, because i was losing a lot of time. In the pits i choosed to change to soft tires, since there were only 5 laps to the end. After pitting i was 44sec. behind Gareth, but my car was feeling very good :) , i was able to gain a lot of time, after 2 laps i had closed the gap to 35sec:rolleyes: . but shortly after that i suffered a disconection.:cry:
    This was a great race, i can't wait to the league to start and race with some more cars on track (hopefully with more disconections).:whistling:
    Congratulations to both Gareth and Stuart for the race, it was really enjoyable despite the disconections. Thank you for the race :thumbsup:

    Unfortunatly it's when you forget about braking is when incidents happen.

    I know, I had a message saying disconnected from the sever but I was still in the server :) altough i couldn't do anything

    Apparently there have been a few issues recently so hopefully after the scheduled down time they will fix it.

    A question Gents - when you chat in the lobby sometimes it blanks out your comment i.e. *******. What is that? (it's not as if expletives are being used!)

    Yeap - if you rely on the other guy to break on time you are in trouble. I guess experience is the only way to counter those kind of mistakes. :geek:

    I think 'disconnected' is censored then - maybe pd have a guilty conscience!
