    Virtual Safety Car Rules:
    1.1 The VSC procedure may be initiated to neutralize a race upon the order of the League Administrator. It will normally be used when double waved yellow flags are needed on any section of the track or Multiple Cars (More than 2) are involved in an incident and have incurred Damage. It will take the request of (2) or more drivers to request a caution flag.
    1.2 When the order is given to initiate the VSC procedure a message “Caution” will be Called out on the official messaging system. (Party Chat) If you have dropped out of Party Chat and realize after passing another car there is a VSC you may give the position back to avoid penalties.
    1.3 No car may be driven unnecessarily slowly, erratically or in a manner which could be deemed potentially dangerous to other drivers or any other person at any time whilst the VSC procedure is in use. This will apply whether any such car is being driven on the track, the pit entry or the pit lane.
    1.4 No car may enter the pits whilst the VSC procedure is in use unless it is for the purpose of changing tires or repairing damage.
    1.5 All competing cars must reduce speed and stay above the minimum time set by the League Administrators. The stewards may impose either of the penalties on any driver who fails to stay above the minimum time as required by the above.
    1.6 With the exception of the cases listed under a) to d) below, no driver may overtake another car on the track whilst the VSC procedure is in use.
    The exceptions are:
    a) When entering the pits a driver may pass another car remaining on the track after he has
    Reached the first safety car line.
    b) When leaving the pits a driver may overtake, or be overtaken by, another car on the track
    before he reaches the second safety car line.
    c) Whilst in the pit entry, pit lane or pit exit a driver may overtake another car which is also in one of these three areas.
    d) If any car slows with an obvious problem.
    1.7 When the Administrator of the league decides it is safe to end the VSC procedure 1 complete lap under Caution. A message will come from League Adminstator and, at most tracks the Race will resume at the Start/Finish line unless the length of the track allows for field to be reset and safely go back to green flag racing.
    1.8 Each lap completed whist the VSC procedure is in use will be counted as a race lap.
    1.9 Enforcement of VSC rules include but are not limited to Time Penalty, Points Penalties, 1 Race Suspension to be determined by Chief Steward. Replays will be reviewed if needed.

  8. I'm all the way in! just got off some fresh practice here trying quali spec low fuel in the bentley and ran a 1:41.8! I've never matched that in any GT3 car so very happy with that :D I have yet to even try this on TT with closed ducts and radiator haha, it must fly!!
    bit worried about the endurance/longevity side of things but the pace is surely there when needed most. Really looking forward to this one:thumbsup:

    60% chance of rain.....
     
  11. thats cool from the foracast though that would mean the whole race would be rain from start to finish
     
  12. that will be typical, Bentley is an aquaplaning slug in the rain. I really hope it's dry for this race at least lol
     
  13. i havent drove the caddy in rain either man...but hey atleast I know ahead of time the z4 would make for a way better car in it....

    I was looking at some PC leaderboard times, and Beetsjuice has been the only one able to get the Corvette into the 42's. Bentley's McLaren's and Ruf's are solidly on top. Although it's hard to tell if those times for the Bentley's were pre BOP or not. But Toast has proven Bentley is still capable of running 41's. Looks like the Vette will be a dog much like the GTE Aston last season. :(

    You want to go to BMW do it. But if you are ready to take the training wheels off stick with the Caddy. You're a better racer than that Big! I tried the Vette with ESC and it was actually slower just to test a theory. I even tried the Vette with ABS and couldn't really tell much of a difference, although it may be needed in the rain. I'm testing it out tomorrow morning.
     

  16. nah i'm staying caddy man...if I was going bmw I would have already did it dude...as for training wheel if the pros use I can to lol....as for rain yeah now that is different that all Im saying I was talking about what toast was saying about bently being slick in rain man didnt have anything about me wanting to run bmw dude I'm staying caddy I'm committed to it.

    yeah it would be totally easy for me to drive the Z4 for another season. the Vette is definitely a challenge, and running it will shake up the field a bit. The challenge will hopefully make me a better driver even if the finishes aren't indicative of the performance. I would take a 3rd or 4th place finish in our stacked field as a small victory in itself, Seeing I've not been able to break into the 42's. So I fully expect to be behind Toast, Tom, and Doc. Hopefully they'll make a mistake and I can get a good finish, or I'll settle for mid-pack. Maybe the Vette will be good in the rain, and I'll have to do a rain dance every weekend cause it's slow in the dry.
