Can I remind everybody that this is an RD club racing event and as such, is subject to ourRacing Club Rules. Please pay extra special attention to The Golden Rule, Track limits Rule and Blue flag rule.
Anybody who is adjudged to have broken these rules - especially The Golden Rule - will be subject to a ban from racing at RD. This is not a public server - rule breakers & wreckers will not be tollerated.

Thank you.

I just think that, without BoP, the Alfas are too fast for the others. I forgot about the the format change Hans. It would mean that I need to practice. Does anybody else have any input on this? I know that for some people 2 races is better, but ATM we don't have that option - ask on the forum please. :)

To make myself clear. I don't want to reduce practice time. I can go along with Bram's vision on that. But I find qually too long, even becoming tedious and annoying in failing to improve my time in the last 10 minutes. I'd rather see those minutes added to the race for more battles and fun.

The idea of a 40 minute race is interesting as it may bring tire choice and pit stops into the mix.
I don't mind the shorter qualifying time.

I'll give it a try, looks like a good combo. For me 30mins of qualifying seems a bit too long. My favorite would be 15mins. Just my two cents. This time I'll take it as extra practice time.

And yes, too bad the 2 races with reversed grid format is not implemented yet, I do like that.

A very nice combo! Thanks Denis. I had a good start gaining one position to 4th and managed to keep up until I overshot my breakpoint for the corkscrew. For that I received a penalty for reducing to 35km that I didn't noticed (I'm relying to much on CrewChief). I got disqualified by not executing the penalty. The only option is then to leave the event and return. I re-entered 2 laps behind Sam Cobb (4th) and could stay there for the rest of the race. Finished 11th.
