Tuesday 10/09/19
Practice:
21:00 ET (30 minutes)
Qualifying: 21:30 ET (15 minutes)

Warmup : 21:45 ET (5 minutes)
Race : 21:50 ET (40 minutes) - Mandatory pit stop (minimum of two tires)

Selecting a car/livery is optional and is just a way of showing your preference. Everyone is free to choose what they like as duplicates are allowed.

I am going to ask everyone to please keep the chat to a minimum during the race, especially with the great turn out we have had as it may be distracting to some drivers as well as talking over each will get alot of 'what did you say?'
If we can keep the chat to warning a driver in regards to lapped traffic, giving someone your intent on entering pits if they are approaching, or overall track awareness would greatly be appreciated.


the FReD (Finishers Rewards Drawing)
J-F of Sector 3 wants us to have a successful kick off to the club and has generously provided redeem codes for 200 VRP each that can be used on content of your choice, or just save it for use later as there is no expiration.

Each week three randomly selected drivers that complete the race, NO DNF's or Disconnects, will be awarded the VRP. Does not matter where you finish as long as you DO finish to qualify for drawing.

Each of the next twelve weeks (ending Sept 24, 2019) we will award the VRP to the three randomly selected drivers. There is no limitation as the amount of VRP you can win, so show up and finish each week.:D

At the end of twelve weeks the top four drivers with the most number of complete races will also be awarded 200 VRP each. (in the event of ties a random drawing will be done).

*I am not a lawyer, or pretend to be one, and am not responsible for loopholes perceived or otherwise in this rewards drawing:).

Well, I'm back. We were prepared for a direct hit when for some reason the hurricane stalled over Grand Bahama Island and sat there for almost 2 days pounding them mercilessly while all we got was some of the wind and rain of the outer bands. Once it started moving again it veered northward and left us with just a few isolated power outages so we can count our blessings as things return to normal.

On to Portimao:thumbsup:. BTW, did someone pour oil all over this track or did I just forget how tractionless these cars are?

I'm in. No car choice yet. Do we have to confirm a car before raceday or no?
:thumbsup: You may select any car/livery anytime. Only pre-race choice requirement is during multi-class races

So glad to hear you were spared the brunt of the storm, thoughts and prayers go out to those that were less fortunate.

If you have not seen the post by Alex H of Sector 3 in the Spa multiclass event thread the amount of fuel does have an effect on the weight and behavior of the car.
I honestly never saw it at RA or Sonoma. I tried both cars with five laps of fuel but no difference in times. Then I tried it at Hockenheim, because "What The Hell?" I could not get any faster with my wing where it was, and my time dropped significantly enough to raise me from 6th on the quali leaderboard to 3rd.

Go figure...The two cars I am fastest in, LMP1 and GTO, I get no speed increase, yet one of the cars I am not fast in I get a speed increase.
 
The Lotus feels in between the Porsche, and KTM. It doesn’t jive with me for some reason though. Neither does the Porsche. Figures I like the slowest one of the bunch. The X Bow loves to be thrown into corners, but is an absolute turtle on straights. I think this will be the first race I go with a slow car on straights.
