Notes:
(1) It's best if all drivers can make sure they are connected before the Qualifying session as drivers on track during qualifying will not see
cars that join after they are on track until they go back to the garage.
(2) Please make sure you are fully aware of the SimRacing.org.uk Rules (http://www.simracing.org.uk/index.php?pid=7) especially the
rules about in-game chat messages.
(3) You will need to install Race Room Racing Experience from Steam, and have the Euro and American Track Packs for this series (And maybe another
non pack track occasionally)
(4) Please exercise caution when pitting as some tracks have a speed limit.

(5) Please follow the SROUK guidelines for using kerbs etc. Please keep 2 wheels on the track surface (kerbs do not count as track surface)
Excessive cutting of corners will seen as cheating and the results may be altered to reflect this.

Well that was fun but I hope I don't get disqualified as I didn't pit! Mind you I suspect Spanner and Frex aren't too happy running out of fuel with a couple of laps to go! I started with a full tank and had 4 litres left at the end. I think we must have had a fuel multiplier on.

Were we supposed to pit? If so, I didn't either..! Yep, filled the tank but still ran dry last lap. Great fun throughout however, although tyre wear was horrendous, much worse than I recall in the Audi - was there a tyre wear multiplier on also?? Congrats Pete.

Don't think anyone made a pit stop! Luckily Pete noticed the x2 fuel and I filled the Beemer's tank to the brim and had enough fuel to complete the race with a gallon or so left. Had a couple of offs with the distractions of the pit info, other than that I enjoyed my night!  ;D

Can't remember which Audi it was but I remember running one where in a 30 or 40 minutes race I had worn the tyres so badly I ended up with a puncture. Not being able to remember which one means I simply avoid them

Yes, my fronts and one rear were red well before half-distance, and flashing red towards the end. It was a toss-up as to whether I'd run out of fuel or get a puncture first...!

So there was no tyre wear multiplier turned on? That's worrying if so. I know there has been a big game update and reset of the leaderboards, so maybe there have been some physics changes that I'm unaware of. Or maybe I just need to re-work the setup now that they have been reset also. The car was a joy to drive before, I hope I can get it back to that again.

Fuel was at 2x, tyre wear was normal
I had to reset the server in a rush as my classroom was about to be rebuilt
and missed the fuel setting from SRWs previous race I guess.
sorry guys  :hang:

You were surprised at the tyre wear Frex?? You were pretty much sideways out of every corner from my view!

Never got to check the fuel usage in car in qually. Pete said it was likely to be 20laps yet with a full tank it estimated 18Laps. Plus pretty much every time the fuell usage is much lower than its setup estimate. Sadly it wasnt!

Yes, but it was the fronts that were suffering the most, not the rears. And the Audi has always liked to go sideways but I've not had the tyres drop off so quickly before. Hopefully some setup work will improve things.
