Moderator's Report

Server replay time: 0h00m40s

Only one incident - but it was a big one!

Ronnie gets a rocket start and moves alongside Cookie who has bogged down slightly. Cookie moves slightly to the left and Ronnie moves to avoid him but rather than straightening stays pointing leftwards. This squeezes the room and mayhem is the result. Cookie should have stayed as far right as possible to leave as much room as possible but it is easy with hindsight.

Being so tight this track needed a looser grid and I don't believe anyone will learn much from being penalised but drivers MUST keep a consistent line off the grid on tight tracks.

Season 26 Professionals Trophy, Round 8, Syracuse

The 8th race of the season is at the home track of Sergio in Siracusa Sicily.
This is a real Road Course with lots of stone walls and hay bales you have to avoid.



Division Moderator =   Badblood
Race List =   IGOR
Server = UKGPL_8
IP Address = tba
Race date = 13-05-2014
Qualification Time   = ~20:45  UK time -> 30-45 min
Race Time = race starts at 21:30 UK time
Track = Syracuse (read the full thread for fixes and addons!)
Variant = 65F1 the 2.02 Release of the 65mod should be used
Damage Model = PRO
Race length = ~50 min -> 28 laps
RED ZONE = From the start to the Curva Carpinteri
Password = see above
Replay = you will get here


Driver lists and series rules can be found on the championship standings page.

The full time drivers can start to practice as soon as the server is available.  Reserve drivers can also join as soon as the server becomes available but must leave the server with 35 minutes of qualifying left, for a total of 5 minutes; this will allow any remaining full timers to join.  If there is enough space on the grid, the reserve drivers will be able to rejoin when there are 30 mins of qualifying left.  

Please restrict chat to pit messages including at the end of the race until ALL drivers still racing have crossed the line.

Moderating The red zone will be fully moderated for lap 1 only.
Whilst I would like to moderate the full lap, I only have one life so for this event the red zone will be the first lap up to the exit of Curva Carpinteri.

Other moderation will be on reported incidents only.  However any incidents that occur in the red zone that are not reported by the drivers will be reported by the moderator.  This will allow all affected drivers the opportunity to present their case before the incident is moderated.  This should ensure there are no surprises when the moderator's report is published and hence appeals will be less likely.  If you haven't received a PM about an incident before the link below the results table is removed, you can be sure that you will not appear in the moderator's report.

Report moved to Oulton Park in England, as that is where the track moved to for the Friday Trophy.  Tongue

Must't confuse hair-balls (that cause a lot of grief to moggies) with hay bales (good rabbit bedding or horse food), for which I hope Cookie's English grammar has improved! Grin

PS the starting grid was ridiculously tight for this track, in my opinion.

Re Anderstorp above and ditto here.

Apologies to whoever got caught up in that. After the ridiculous grid at Anderstorp the other night I really did not think this could get any worse!! My heart sank as I appeared on the grid. An absolute no win situation for me with a close grid like that. Starting on top of the car ahead with no room to brake and hold position or chop left/right to avoid the car ahead without getting clobbered from behind or interfering with someone on your left/right respectively. I despair that the moderators seem to live in a world of their own at times. I just hope someone, they are prepared to listen to, suggests loose grids in future which both reward good qualification and help to avoid start line incidents.

Good luck all still running.

The lap one chaos was eye-opening and I will observe a server replay to establish exactly what happened, I can't help but feel I was a part of it when I jinked slightly right to try and avoid somebody. I ended up hauling on the anchors to tip-toe through, and myself and Arf emerged (him after a barrel roll or 3...). Ended up 5th after a few laps after runners dropped like flies in the Arctic, which became 4th when Arf disappeared. Then on lap 19 I found myself permanently wedged in the hay-bales at the fast left-hander.

Hardly any gpl since Kyalami as I have a new pc & its taken (Clutch) ages to get GPL working on it with windows 8.1. So qually time was what I expected. Didn't see the accident but avoided the wreckage. It was all going well, lying 7th, when the screen went blank & eventually "No Signal" appeared. This has happened once before & I really tightened the connection but obviously its worked loose again!. Heard Dave pass but no alternative but to hit escape before the fast boys arrived. Probably hit the wall as well anyway driving blind. Still its good to be back but no points i'm afraid. Well done to the survivors!

I'm not doing very in this series of late.  An early faller at the Nurb and I probably didn't get much more than about 300m down track in this one before being tossed...quite literally...over the stone wall.  That's life...

For many a year, I have re-written grid layouts providing more comfy spacing for the ADC and the oAo.  At your service should you decide to meet my retainer.

Yes this is my fault!
There is no official "loose grid" track.ini for this track, I had edited it last year and did not think about it...

BUT
We are driving PRO Series with well experienced drivers!!!

Shame for the start incident, but IMO when there is a tight grid, you should be even more cautious not to wreck.

Anyway, was a new track for me, and today found a good setup. As it's a fast track, pumping up the tires was the answer to laptime and being king on the straights, kind of a Steve Cloyd trick, together with his diff choice. Turns were a bit slippery though.

Quali was exciting, and hoped for a 42 but couldn't put all sectors together, great lap Uli. Had a good start, but already scraped the wall after a few turns, car was difficult through the turns, but really good straight line speed, just had to make my exits reasonably well, and Uli couldn't get a run, until he blew up an engine I think.

After that I could manage my enginetemps and keep an eye on the gap with Axel, who was very fast early on, but I was able to gradually increase the gap. Hit the wall, but not too hard, and the car was still good. Towards the end I pushed for a laptime...

Happy with my drive and win, too bad for all the attrition. Well done Axel and clive for podium, and David for finish and P4 Wink

A new pole again - but very close and exciting – got me hard done, didn‘t find my rhythm to make a 42 time Sad . After all it was a nice battle – THX to you Robert!
So i was looking forward to continue this fight in the race.  Smiley
Robert to the lead with a better start and i followed in safety distance, everything fine ...
BUT then out of the blue, already in the 5th lap my engine explored on the long straight.
i'm frustrated of losing this race so early an this way again after Laguna.
GRATS to all survivors, especially Robert, Axel and Clive
