    - 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.

    this was a really chalenging event, these cars are really hard to control and they che the tyres, so you really have to take care of them.

    R1: i had a slow start to avoid destroying the tyres, but in the end of lap 1 i spun and the tyres suffered, i drove slowly during the entire race to preserve the tyres, but i spun 2 more times and by the end of the race there were no tyres left

    R2: Again started slowly, Gareth soon left me behind, but he spun and i was able to pass him and stay in the front, Gareth them stopped and i gained some ground, but at the end he was gaining a lot of time to me, but i was able to take the victory.

    R3: we decided to have another race, but this time we did a rolling start @ 100 kph, i wsa in the front for a while, but them Gareth passed me but again he had to pit for tyres, this time i also pitted to change to mediums but i had forgotten to buy them before the race :roflmao: so i had to take the hard ones, but i think i was able to keep in front (we were running on free practice, so i don't know what was the gap :D). Anyway there were 3 nice races. Thank you for the races and well done, this cars are very hard to drive, but a lot of fun :thumbsup:

    Cheers Rui for the race and thanks for to Stu for organising. Definitely an interesting variation. First race I didn't make any mistakes, second race I spun on lap 1 and that really chewed the tyres and made it very difficult from there, well done to Rui.
