Moderator's Report

A few incidents in the Red Zone. It never harms to leave the other guy a bit more room. Half a second lost in the Red Zone for everyone is better than races being over before they have started for one or two.


Server replay time: 0h00m49s

Boggy lives up to his handle and gets bogged down off the line. He over accelerates and starts to rotate into a faster starting Nigel.

Lack of car control - practicing standing starts is part of the on-line racing experience.

Unlucky for Nigel.


Server replay time: 0h01m03s

Rob gets a god run out of Eau Rouge inside RogUK. Unfortunately it is all a bit tight and GPL decides to spin Rog off. Rob did nothing wrong but drivers need to leave themselves room - it is almost always the car on the outside who loses out.

A spinning Rog collects Badblood who doesn't react quickly enough to avoid a collision.


Server replay time: 0h38m05s

After several laps of nip and tuck Nigel gets alongside Badblood. BB is caught out by how far Nigel has got up alongside and moves across to take the corner but should have left room.

The rules have this: "In a corner, after a legitimate overtaking attempt the cars end up side by side. One driver moves over instead of staying on their own side of the track. Contact is made. Penalty for driver that moves over." Fits pretty well.

The Novices Trophy resumes its battle at the classic track of Spa-Francorchamps using the modified layout used between 1947 and 1970. Not for us the wimpy 4 mile track that passes for F1 these days and no stopping at bus stops. Pah! No we have a mighty 14km that will take more than 3 and a half minutes to get round (in my case probably more than four minutes Sad)

This track was the fastest circuit in the world. The original triangle-shaped course used public roads between the Belgian towns of Spa, Malmedy, and Stavelot. The combination of massively fast speeds, poor safety equipment and the unpredictable weather made this track deadly in the 1960's. So much so that the Grand Prix drivers boycotted the race in 1969.

Jackie Stewart's crusade to improve safety in racing was set in motion by his crash there in 1966, when his BRM ended upside-down in the cellar of the farmhouse on the outside of the corner, with fuel gushing out of the tank onto the Scot, who had broken ribs to add to his misery.

Luckily for us GPL isn't quite so dangerous. We can enjoy the challenge of taking Eau Rouge and the Masta kink flat out without killing ourselves.

The Novices will race for 11 laps on this loooong circuit!

In line with the new handicapping system, only the series leader is chassis restricted. None of us are close enough to the invincible Rob Venn to require it! Since Spa is such a power track the restriction to a BT7 is loosened (just a bit).

Handicapped Driver(s)Allowed Chassis
Rotaxmax125BT7 or Cooper

Please check the Season 23 pages for details regarding rules and the Novices Trophy pages in particular.

Qualifying may start before 9pm, if so, Reserve drivers should leave the server when 35 minutes of qualifying remains and only rejoin when 30 minutes of qualifying is left. This is to ensure that Full Time drivers get priority in joining.

Please restrict chat to pit messages if necessary, and this includes the end of the race, until all running drivers have completed the necessary laps.

The Novice Trophy races are run under Int Long rules and all incidents in the Lap 1 red zone will be moderated and reported incidents for the rest of the race, however the moderators reserve the right to review any incident. Drivers can take UNLIMITED Shift-R but MUST take a Stop n Go for each one. The Red Zone will extend to the exit of Malmedy.

Please ensure you are aware of the new in-series penalties for this season. Details are here. Drivers incurring a penalty will receive a PM informing them of this."

Please submit incident reports within a week after the race so that the moderators report may be out before the next race.

Welcome B.  IGOR chatroom channel is #ukgpl, and someone is often there mid-evening to discuss 4 wheeled matters.  We also have a practice server or 2 for test races.  With your unexpected nickname, I'd suggest you practice your starts, before starting an official race with us. Smiley

This one sneaked up on me, I thought it was next week Sad I better gets some practice in. I’m looking forward to racing again, first one with my new steering wheel and I’m still getting use to it so I won’t be as fast as I should be.

Good luck everyone.

I moved it so you sould do it Al Wink

What sort of times you getting. I can't beat 3:41 solo (although with tow I would be faster) which is not fast enough I suspect.

@Boggy, drop me a PM if you are having problems.

Hmmm. I should be quicker in the mighty Honda - topping out at about 168 down to Stavelot but I always end up slow coming out of there. What splits you getting Al? I am 57/51/52/61 ish.

Not sure on my spilts, I will check it out tonight.

168 sounds about the same as me, with a tow I'm in the low 170's but that was just against the computer.

I can get the BT11 up to 170 on the entry to Stavelot. Similar split times Paul, but might do 51/60 in sectors 3 & 4. Theoretically I should get better top speeds in other cars - but I can't.

You get the split times with F5 on prib I think Rob.

I too am mid 3.40 in the BT11 and a couple of seconds slower in the honda but the honda is much more forgiving when you touch the grass..... so it's a bit of a gamble..
This is my first race on my new pc (which I've had about 3 days) so I hope it is ok, my old pc was on its final warning when it froze at the norisring.

You chaps should concentrate on being neat and tidy in , to get the best possible corner exit speeds , the better exit the faster you get down the next straight .

particuarly Eua rouge , malmedy , "the kink"  and  La source , IMO of course  Wink
