Red Zone -
On Lap 1, the entire start straight and turn 1 to Turn 5 is considered a red zone. This simply means that the replay of the start and turn 1 to Turn 5 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.

Another major winter storm heading our way tonight and tomorrow, possibly up to 45 cm of snow, rain, freezing rain and with high winds, so I if I don't attend it most likely will be due to a power outage.

I'd just like some clarification about the pit from the entry to the end of the white line. There are soo many lines, dunno which ones can be cut :)

its simple, before the pit lights and after the pit lights all 4 wheels must remain between the white lines inbetween the pit lights (entry and exit) you can cross any of the lines. at the exit of the pits you you cannot cross the white line until it finished. if you want tomorrow i'll show you once on the server.
 
Ah ok. It seemed natural to me that after the pit exit light, it's normal 2 wheels inside lines rule because it's still far away from the track, but when it rejoins the actual track, the real white line starts and it musn't be touched. I believe it's like that in real world. Well I think many could cut the lines at eau rouge after pit exit, better make sure everyone knows the rules, it's about 1-2 seconds gain :)
 
The bits of tarmac outside the white lines are also very slippy if memory serves me correctly!

I take it the pit speed limit is in force throughout the 'old' and 'new' pitlanes here? I seem to recall there were bugs where you could go full speed through the 'new' pitlane and not incur a penalty.

the pits speed limit is from the lights just before the pit building (or something like that) to the pit lights at the bottom of Eau Rouge the uphill section of Raidillon is speed limit free.

Just a little reminder guy's that we have a mandatory pit stop to do today for a minimum of 2 tires between lap 8 and 14 ;)

good luck to everybody :)
 
Almost great race today :p
Quali was great, race started well too and the racing with Ross was fantastic, when I lost the slipstream after the little mistake we were virtually on the same pace. Then I somehow gained 3 seconds and the 1st place at the pitstop....aaaaand it just had to happen, troll subconsciousness told me at the pitlane la source hairpin that the pits are just over and when I realized my fail, I already had 77kph. Slamming the brakes didn't help, welcome drive thru.

Then I had two challenges left - fastest lap and and the highest possible apex speed at Blanchimont, was good fun anyway.
Sorry for spoiling The p1 Battle with the fail xD
 
Good qualifying, but not far from Jarek. Less than a tenth of a second between us.

Had a good start but was held up by cars in front and didn't want to risk anything in the 'Red Zone' so I held back. Lost a couple of positions to Yves and Jarek on the first lap and then got punted by Stig at the bus stop. I fell well down the field. I kept going and worked my way through the field and had a great battle with Phil.

:thumbsup:

I must have received damage from the punt at the bus stop as I had damage and had a very long stop. 207 seconds or 3.45 minutes plus the journey into and out of the pitlane. Therefore I decided to call it a day. I didn't think I could really salvage anything after being lapped.

Great fun, hope to see you all at Hockenheim!

EDIT: Forgot some screenshots!
