(2) Please make sure you are fully aware of the SimRacing.org.uk Rules especially the
rules about in-game chat messages.
(3) You will need to install Race Room Racing Experience from Steam, and have the relevant Tracks for this series
(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.

*Each following driver shall close up directly behind the driver in front also maintaining a speed of no more than 50mph (80km/h)
*The pole sitter should maintain that speed until they cross the start line and then accelerate away to start the race (lap2)
*Each following driver should only accelerate when the driver directly ahead does (they do not have to wait until crossing the start line)
*No overtaking is allowed before crossing the start line at the completion of the formation lap

The server is now switched to Mid Ohio ready for practicing for tomorrow nights GT3 Race. Don't forget there will be a one week mid season break after tomorrow nights race where we will be holding a special event 'GT3's at Le Mans using Assetto Corsa'.

Are we supposed ot be sticking to one car? Are the points reduced if we change?

Tried a few cars out again. 650S, Z4, M6, Ruf On the server this time. All pretty consistent accept the M6 which is a bit of handlful yet went a few tenths quicker in it.

My original intention was for racers to stick to one car, with the option of switching to another car for the rest of the season(penalty free)if they found they were not getting on with their original choice. So you can switch over to another car type for the rest of the season if you want to.

I hadn't envisaged anyone wanting to swap on a race by race basis, so hadn't specified a penalty for more than one swap. If people would prefer to do this we can open up a discussion, I am happy with either option  Smiley , I chose the current system to mirror real life.

Most drivers here seem to stick to one or two cars for a season so shouldn't really be too much of an issue imo. I intentionally tried lots of cars last season and will probably do similar this time for those races I can make.....I'm not points chasing so doesn't concern me  Smiley

Hope to make this one btw but not sure what car I'll take.

The definition of season kinda isnt clear sometimes, especially with alternating series on alternating weeks and seemingly dragging on forever! Plus events are on every week.

I see its quite a short series, ok i'll stick to the audi. P4/5 felt nice around here though, it certainly handles well.

I can give you my setup SRW if you want? Most cars seem to work better if the rear is alot stiffer than normal with the dampers. They are really the only thing i end up changing. Will check tommorw but think it was FB: 5 FRB:12 RB: 12, RRB:8

Springs 1 up from lowest front and rear, increase rear camber to -2.5, I also reduce diff preload by 1. are my default changes. Also reduce front ARB by one.

Did a 25.7 with it in the end.

That was hard work.

Though with everyone seeming finding their feet I was thinking about not qualifying but then GT stuck a time up which came out of nowhere! So got caught up in trying to beat it. Surprised to be getting down to those times but still couldn't quite get that close to it.

Spent 30mins stuck behind Goldtops BMW, though felt comfortable so was just trying to put some pressure on as there is nowhere to pass round here. However with 10mins to go I managed to sneak ahead into the hairpin but then I was a bit stressed with no longer a car infront to pace against, and the tyres getting worse!

After GT dropped back over 20 secs I slowed down so I didn't catch SRW and Dieter who were racing each other.

Was going to give the vette an outing but had trouble keeping on track during practice. Switched to the M6 as I don't think I've raced that before  and immediately felt more stable.

Had a good start but was not able to shake off Spanner who remained within 0.5 secs and showed a lot of patience behind me. I was having to push hard until my tyres went off and I started to lose grip eventually running wide at T1 and losing the lead. Tried to hang on but in doing so I spun out and limped home.

I'm not usually so bad with tyres in GT cars so I think the M6 probably makes up for its ease of driving with bad tyre deg.....or at least that's my excuse  Wink

In any case, grats on a well deserved win Spanner  Cool

Well the audi and the M6 seem to be the only cars now i can drive in GTR3 class. I think its something to do with the tyres as well.

I did consider the Corvette for the first round at Zolder but just could not tame it well enough. In timetrials the cars were brilliant it was when i came on the server the cars felt quite different, so now i'm trying to put in practise beforehand.
