    Red Zone - On Lap 1, the entire start straight and turn 1 to Turn 7 is considered a red zone. This simply means that the replay of the start and turn 1 to Turn 7 will be looked at automatically - any incidents caused by overly aggressive behaviour or rules being broken will be punished harshly. It is a league, so be competitive, but don't destroy other people's races.

    Sign up
    Even if you haven't signed up for the entire league it is possible to take part of the races (both of them) to do so you just have to use that format and choose one of the liveries that is not already taken, numbers in blue are the liveries available and numbers in red are already taken.

    Teamspeak is not mandatory but its highly recommended as its makes easier to communicate and to get to know the guy's you race with, its also lots of fun :)

    Track bounderies rules
    Here are some precision about the track bounderies, 2 wheels must remain between the 2 white lines at all time but on this track there is a few exceptions and here they are please refer to the track map pic in the top post

    Turn 1
    On the interior of the turn the wall is the track bounderie so you can cross the white line with all 4 wheels, on the outside of the turn the white line is the track bounderie so 2 wheels most remain between the wall and the white line.

    Turn 17 (last corner)
    on the interior of the turn the wall is the track bounderie so you can cross the white line with all 4 wheels, on the outside of the turn the white line is the track bounderie so 2 wheels most remain between the wall and the white line

    Those are the only 2 exceptions at any other corners 2 wheels must remain between the 2 white lines.

    one other clarification, when you exit the pits only rejoin the track once you have cleared all the poles do not cross them before the last one.

    Hey guy's it would be fun if as much drivers could get on TeamSpeak it add so much to the racing experience and its easier to get to know your fellow drivers, also if you want you can get interview by the commentator to do that simply join the channel where Thomas Hinss is and wait till he is talking to you please do not talk before he talks to you :)

    After the final race would be preferred as I'll have to do the giveaway for the stream chat during the break between races for the sprint rounds :). Also keep in mind I may not do everyone if a lot of people join the channel. Will do as many as I can but having the interviews go on for too long can make viewers turn off the stream because they go on for too long. I might note down the people I interview each round so I don't do the same people every time, thereby giving everyone as even and fair amount of interviews as possible :)

    No offence at all intended towards you guys, just having them go on for too long could annoy viewers.

    Makes sense @Thomas Hinss

    Could I make a little suggestion without overstepping my bounds. Focus on the front runners for sure, but would it possible to include all drivers a bit more through out the events because ( I am assuming) we all would get a kick out of seeing ourselves on YouTube and we could share our little moments with our friends.... saying "hey that me there" in 18th position fighting with Billy Bob.

    Thanks for entertaining my request

    I feel like @Thomas Hinss focused enough on the other drivers and swapped to the action fast enough most of the time. I wouldn't change a thing. However, if someone were to drop out of the race in a spectacular way, I feel like it would be the perfect time for a quick little interview.

    On a different note, I'm heading on to the server for practice now. :)

    Happy to hear any suggestions you guys have :). Well I'll certainly try to, I would say I did focus a good deal on battles elsewhere, but yes battles a the back end of the field I didn't really focus on a lot so I could give them a look more if the leaders get spread out :).

    The HistorX team have kindly posted this round as an event on their Facebook page.
    It'd be really cool it if those of you who have FB accounts could share and/or click the join button.
    Thanks in advance. :)

    Are you quite sure it is completely dead? Have you checked for example the transformer so it still delivers power.
    I don´t know how technical you are but can you or have you checked that?
    Just a simple tip. ;)
