Moderator's Report

Changing cars during qualifying is not allowed and would normally mean a penalty of disqualification. So if in the future if you've mistakenly joined the qualifying session in the wrong car, then change it immediately, do not run some laps in it and then decide to change it!


Shift R is not permitted during qualifying. A number of drivers were doing this, please read the UKGPL rules! If you Shift R, during the race, for whatever reason, you have to take a STOP GO penalty IN THE PITS within 2 laps of the Shift R.


PIT STOPS

There was some confusion over pit stops with a number of people stopping for no reason! Division 6 DO NOT DO PIT STOPS nor do we need the GPLWait utility!


STOPPING ON THE CIRCUIT

A number of drivers did their seemingly, random stops/STOP GO penalties, on the top of the hill at the S/F line outside of the pits on the circuit! This is a big NO NO and those of you that did were very lucky not to have caused any accidents. This just about the fastest part of the circuit and a prime overtaking spot, so no more of that please. If you, as some of you did, miss the pit lane entry then you'll have to go around again until you can make it into the pits. Practice the pit lane entry for the next circuit.


Lap 1 - Rikki Foster/Jonathan Boughton - The Kink

R.F. approaching the last fast right hander you should have noticed J.Boughton was fast gaining on you and making a positive overtaking move for the inside line through the Kink. J. B. you made a decent move but in hindsight you might have thought that R.F. just might not have seen you and ithat's what appeared to happen. R.F. you turned in on the racing line expecting to find the apex, instead you find the rear end of J.B.'s car. It just might have worked but a WARP contact took threw R.F. off the circuit.

RULING - 50/50 racing incident.


Lap 1 - Chris Rae - The Esses

There's 4 cars bunched up ahead of you negotiating the Esses on lap 1 with cold tyres and full tank. You hit the rear of J. Boughton turning into the first left. Lap 1 needs extra care for all the obvious reasons.

Because of the above incident you had to take a Shift R but you didn't take a STOP GO penalty for it.
RULING - IGNORED STOP GO - ADVICE - Read the rules!!

Shift R, again, they were very close to each other and I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt on this that you didn't realise you had to do the STOP GO, Last advice on this though. :-)
RULING - IGNORED STOP GO - ADVICE - Read the rules!


Lap 3 - Ian Fawcette - Barbeque Bend

You approached Barbeque Bend and could see Alan Walker ahead of you recovering and continuing back on the racing line for the corner. You decided the corner and the position was yours but it was too little, too late. A.W. working overtime recovering the car in time to get back onto the racing line and has the corner on entry. A.W. sees you in time and tries to give you a wide berth. Having committed yourself to this pass now but only manage to ride the inside curb and bounce off into A.W causing him to take a Shift R and lose 2 places.


Lap 4 - Bryce Allen/Andy Short - Leeukop

Bryce Allen takes the outside line round Andy Short who's recovering, getting back up to speed. It nearly works! A.S. moved out towards the centre and a warp contact unfortunately threw you both off the circuit. Ian Fawcette through no fault of his own got caught up in the process. A very difficult corner and all of the width of the track is used in getting through this one, tough one for 2 cars at the same time.

RULING - 50/50 racing incident.


Lap 4 - Ian Fawcette - Leeukop

After running into the incident above, you rejoined without taking the necessary care to other drivers taking the corner. Allen Walker does well to avoid hitting you. I use the JSJ GPLShift utility it gives me an 85º left and right view instead of the usual 45º view. Better to reverse off the track to get a better view of the approaching cars.

RULING - BAD REJOIN - ADVICE


Lap 5 - Ian Fawcette - Clubhouse/Esses

Chris Rae goes wide through clubhouse and you take the inside line to make the pass before the Esses. But you drift across the track and into the side of C.R. No places lost or gained through it. Max acceleration taking place here after Clubhouse and cars are squirreling around trying to find grip. - Take extra care to hold your line.

RULING - SIDE CONTACT - ADVICE


Lap 8 - Bryce Allen - The Kink

You spun out at the Kink eventually ending up on the left side of the track at the top of the S/F straight. You pulled out onto the racing line! Andy Short and Ian Fawcette did extremely well to avoid hitting you. Keep off the racing line until you're back up to speed or you know for sure it's clear to re-join.


Lap 14 - Jonathan Ball - Crowthorne

J.B. you knew Sharon Cullen had been right with you for the last 13 laps and that S.C. was alongside before T1 but you continued through the corner on the racing line regardless and cut across and into S.C. before the apex causing a collision J.B. lost out and was thrown off the track. Take a wide line through the corner to account for the other car.

After the above incident you pull out into the outside of the corner opposite the apex of T1 with clear a view of the approaching car. Bryce Allen had nowhere to go but into you. Look and look again!

  • Jonathan Ball — Bad rejoin following contact with S. Cullen — 3 places lost


Lap 21 - Sharon Cullen - Crowthorne

Almost the identical move on Jonathan Ball as in lap 14 but this time you keep the speed up and get along side J.B. by the turn in point but you can't hold your line and drift wide through the corner and warp contact spun you off the circuit.

Moderator's Report

Lap1 - T1

Alan Walker & Mick Smith - Warp incident
Both enter T1 together. MS takes a tight line round the inside of the corner, AW goes round the outside it could have worked but warp took a big hand in this one and the result was 7 cars taken out, very messy.

After the above, Alan Walker does a Shift R right into Bob Wright's path who's just moving off, causing him to take a Shift R. I know it's difficult, upside down and listening to the rest of the field getting away but you must wait until it's clear, especially on lap 1.

Bob Wright then ignored the Stop Go rule.

Gareth Hughes manages to get through the carnage, spies a gap and goes for it but Colin Paxton is ahead and heading back onto the racing line and heading for the same spot. GH you should have realised where CP was heading, there's always lots of confusion after such a big wreck, take your time and slot in behind other cars if needed until clear of the mess.

Sharon Cullen also ignored her Stop Go.

  • Alan Walker — Bad Shift R — 3 places lost
  • Bob Wright — No Stop & Go after Shift R — 6 places lost
  • Sharon Cullen — No Stop & Go after Shift R — 6 places lost


Lap2 - Start Finish line

Bob Wright passes Bryce Allen for position to the right but mis-judges his cutting back onto the racing line for T1 and catches BA's front right wheel with his rear left, sending BA spinning off track. Better to keep to the same line rather than cutting back across on approach to that corner, you could still have claimed the corner from there.


L1, approach to T1

Rik Foster heading down the straight for T1 trying to make a pass on Rik Briant for position. RB moves over to the right, before RF has started to pass as RB has seen the 2 car crash ahead at T1. RF is now blocked by RB but RF keeps going at full tilt and is far too late in braking for T1. RB Also leaves his braking far too late trying to avoid be passed by RF. Neither of you would have made the corner even if the track was clear and were on the racing line.

50/50 racing incident.


Lap3 - Tunnel Oost

Jason Lang is tentativley heading towards the right hander in the knowledge that Rik Foster is keen to pass. RF holds back on entry and JL slows some more but in the end warp takes over makes the decision for you and sends JL off the track. Warp incident.


Lap4 - Pulleveld

Rik Foster recovering from off the circuit on the right at the entry into the corner just before the apex and going slow. Bob Wright approaches the corner in the normal fashion and on seeing RF slows but was committed to the corner, takes a wide line round the outside of RF and rightly expecting RF to concede. But RF accelerates hard trying to keep position and slides wide into the side of BW taking him out. RF you should have given way to BW, he was clearly visible in your mirrors and were not upto racing speed nor on the racing line.


Lap 8 - T1 & T2

RF in P14, is lapped, in quick succession, first by P1 Ian Fawcette on the home straight and then by P2 Jonathan Ball approaching T1. JB is well ahead of RF by the S/F line and takes it easy towards the entry to T1 to make sure he didn't go wide in case RF contests the corner. RF catches up and enters the corner side by side and RF fights back round the outside and chases JB towards T2. JB again is ahead up takes a reasonable line for T2 but RF doesn't concede the corner and catches up and takes the inside line but too late hits the kerb and bounced off and into JB sending him off and losing a place. It's possible you didn't see the blue flags but didn't it occur to you that you were being lapped in quick succession by 2 faster cars!


Lap 10

  • Allan Paterson — Ignored Stop & Go rule after Shift R — 6 places lost


Lap 11

  • Richard Foster — Ignored Stop & Go rule after Shift R — 6 places lost


Lap 11 - T1

Colin Paxton & Rik Briant take the corner together. This could have worked but warp took control and threw CP off. Warp incident.


Pit exit - Bryce Allen - Bad rejoin - Advice

BA leaves the pits and moves directly over to the racing line for T1, Rik Foster was approaching T1 and clearly visible to BA. RF though was far enough away to see BA moving across and had time to avoid an incident but RF again leaves his braking far too late and carrears through the corner off the circuit and into the fencing. RF would never have made the corner regardless of BA's pit lane exit. BA check it's clear before moving across onto the racing line, it's your resposibilty to make sure you don't interfere with the other drivers line.


Lap 12

Bryce Allen - 3rd self imposed Shift R - retired at point of offense


Lap 14 - Pit lane exit

Bryce Allen leaving the pits after a Stop Go, hits the hay bails and spins across the track and into the path of Alan Walker who couldn't avoid the crash and had to Shift R to continue and loses a place. I'm convinced that BA was being extra cautious to avoid this situation but misjudged or forgot about the haybales whilst checking his mirrors.

Moderator's Report

L1 - T1 Bryce Allen & Mick Smith

Neither driver realised the other was there, both took good approaching lines into the corner but contact was inevitable. Aggressive passing on L1 into T1 is always dangerous here and a keen awareness of who's around you on corner entry is invaluable, so keep looking and less heroics into T1.

Caution - 50/50 RACING INCIDENT.


Bob Wright - Bad rejoin on Sharon Cullen
Sharon Cullen - Bad rejoin on Bryce Allen

Amongst the chaos of all these flying cars on L1 - T1 some bad rejoins were inevitable. I've let them go this time as there was so much confusion. Please, don't just think of yourself so much - there are other drivers that have SR'd and recovered their cars or even managed to avoid the initial crash only to be taken out again by the impatience of other that won't wait.

CAUTION - PATIENCE


Chris Rae & Nick Pitt

Chris manages to avoid the chaos only to be taken out by a massive warp from Nick Pitt

WARP INCIDENT


Burnenville - James White & Noel Kellett

JW catches the outside dirt on the corner that spins him across the track where NK couldn't avoid hitting him.

RACING INCIDENT


Approach to Masta - Alan Walker & Allan Paterson

AP keeps right with AW going for a pass down the left. AP catches the dirt on the right, too much mirror watching perhaps!!, throwing him across the track and into AW.

RACING INCIDENT


Masta Entry - Allan Paterson

After the above incident, you end up on the left facing the wrong way and close to the entry of Masta. You wait for 2 cars to pass but don't wait long enough and spin turn your car round, which was OK but rather than keeping left and out of the way, you attempt to move off and into one of the fastest corner entry's in GPL. This caused Bryce Allen & Sharon Cullen to take avoiding action causing them to crash through Masta and Jason Robinson to lose control of his car.


Masta - Jason Robinson

James White and Sharon Cullen are side by side fighting for the entry into Masta, when, unbelievably JR comes through on the extreme left of both of them! - too fast, too close, too late and no hope of making the corner and just crashes straight into the right side entry barrier. SC & JW are immediately taken out. Then Chris Rae rounds the corner and hits the spinning JW then Rik Briant rounds the corner and hits Chris Rae. 5 cars involved and 3 shift R's taken.

  • blito — Bad overtake — 3 places lost


Exit from Masta - Chris Rae

After the above incident - Shift R's completed CR's path is blocked by a trapped James White who's facing and stuck up against the right hand side barrier of the Masta exit. CR drives out left and into the racing line to get round JW - at the same time as Rik Briant rounds the 2nd part of Masta, CR realises a car is there and tries to make amends but RB can't avoid hitting CR. I've reduced the penalty to a warning because of RB being unsighted to you and that JW, through no fault of his own, was blocking your path.


Exit from Masta - James White

After the above incident - James White finds himself near the middle of the racing line on the 2nd part of the Masta exit and facing the right hand barrier. I think his engines blown, so he free wheels it up against the barrier. JW waits to recover and Shift R's but does not take the Stop Go.


Blanchimont - Bob Wright/Rik Briant/Sharon Cullen

Bob Wright spins on entry and ends up stuck by the outside banking in the middle outside of the corner and blows his engine trying move out of the danger area. Then Rik Briant rounds the corner and hits BW and Sharon Cullen's next who hits Rik Briant.

RACING INCIDENT

After above incident, SC recovers and moves off but can't avoid RB's car that's sliding back down the banking onto the track.

RACING INCIDENT


Approach to Blancimont - Allan Paterson

AP misjudges the speed of Jason Robinson's car ahead that's braking for Blachimont, AP tries to avoid him but too late and AP rear ends JR.


L8 - Burnenville - Gareth Huges

You blow your engine after Les Combes and a country mile before entering Burnenville, but rather than stopping and doing your Shift R there, where there's plenty of room, you choose instead to freewheel all the way down the hill and eventually spin at the apex of the corner and do the Shift R there, Uhh! luckily it was clear for you.

Bad rejoin - Caution


L8 - Blanchimont - Sharon Cullen

Is passed by Chris Rae before the corner but SC doesn't allow for the now reduced braking distance and rear ends CR before entering the corner and sends CR off the track.


Blanchimont - Chris Rae

After the above incident, CR ends up on the right in the middle of the corner and quickly reverses his car back across the track onto and up the opposite banking, then drives off the banking but into the path of Rik Briant who has to Shift R. I've reduced the penalty because RB rounding the corner was unsighted by you, but if you had waited a second you would have heard the car coming. A difficult situation but you could have manoeuvred the car back onto the track without need to drive straight onto the racing line.

  • Chris Rae — Bad rejoin (plus previous yellow card) — 1 place lost

Moderator's Report

LAP 1, MASSENET: Sharon Cullen & Jonathan Ball

JB was keeping left as SC was along side going through St Devote, SC dropped back going up the hill, then JB caught the Armco that juts out by the Coca Cola sign and sent him across the track and bouncing of the kerb, which scrubbed off a lot of speed and SC close behind couldn't avoid contact.

Rear end shunt - 50/50 Racing incident.


Alan Walker & Jonathan Boughton

JB takes avoiding action to miss Noel Kellett ahead and slides out wide, behind AW follows suit onto the pavement but a warp contact makes JB spin off the kerb across the track into Noel Kellett. JB does a 360, JB & NK continue on ok.

Warp incident


Jason Robinson & Mike Cooper

Going up the hill to Massenet JR catches the left side Armco and bounces across the track and mounts the right pavement then back into the middle of the track, when the back end starts to come round. JR manages to get it back under control and did welll to miss the rear end of Mike Cooper. All the cars ahead have now slowed but are still close and at this time JR chooses to accelerate again towards the incident!! and into the back of MC. Lap 1 early corner incident so the full penalty applies.

  • blito — Rear ending Mike Cooper (plus previous yellow card) — 3 places lost


Colin Paxton & Jonathan Boughton

CP manages to avoid the crashing cars ahead of him and find a way through, then accelerates again, hits the outside kerb and bounces back onto a recovering JB and CP starts spinning. Later in the incident CP was hit by Rik Briant that did cause CP to have to Shift R but CP having already lost control of the car and was spinning from contact with JB so it was not an Innocent Victim Shift R.

Racing incident

  • Colin Paxton — Failing to take Stop & Go — 6 places lost


Chris Rae & Jason Robinson

CR did all he could to avoid contact.

Racing incident


Andy Short rounds the corner near the back of the field and at first sight of the yellow flags slows but can't avoid running into Mike Cooper.

Racing incident


Mike Cooper did well to avoid the cars ahead spining etc. but having been rear ended and now facing the wrong way with Chris Rae's Braham blocking his exit. MC proceeds to push it out of the way. MC eventually clears CR's car out of the way just in time to leave a gap for Andy Short rounding the corner to hit MC full on, MC landed on his wheels but does Shift R. Who knows what might have happened if you hadn't have cleared CR's car out of the way. Not an innocent victim Shift R.

  • Oilseal — Failing to take Stop & Go — 6 places lost


Bryce Allen & Rik Briant

Going up the hill to Massenet, BA hits the inside kerb and slides to the outside of the corner and manges to slow the car and regain control. 2 cars in front of you lose control as they enter the first part of Massenet, one goes left and onto the pavement, the other slides out wide, both have cars have now slowed quite a bit. BA's car now under control and traveling at the same speed as the cars in front, then accelerates! and rear ends RB. Later in the incident BA had to Shift R because of a falling Lotus of Jason Robinson but BA was already involved in an incident of his own from not taking all reasonble steps to avoid the first incident. Lap 1 early corner incident so the full penalty applies, also this was not an Innocent Victim Shift R.

  • Greystreak — Rear ending and failing to Stop & Go — 9 places lost


Rik Foster & Bryce Allen

As the entry to Massenet turns left, everything in front of you slows and plainly visible to you is a car leaping into the air, instead of slowing you accelerate towards the incident and into the back BA. Lap 1 early corner incident so the full penalty applies.

  • Richard Foster — Rear ending B. Allen (plus previous yellow card) — 3 places lost


PORTIER: Bryce Allen/Mike Cooper/James White

BA, MC follow JW through the corner all very close to each other. MC hits the rear of James White, who carries on unaware, then BA nurfs MC through the corner causing MC to spin. It's still lap 1and need to leave more room for early braking.

50/50 Racing incident


GAZOMETRES: Rik Briant & Bob Wright - Warp incident


LAP 2, PORTIER: James White & Rik Briant

JW hits the wall on the corner exit and does a 180, Mike Cooper behind gets caught up in JW's spinning car and spins himself. JW then reverses his car, way too fast, across the track into the wall the other side and does a 360 bounces off the wall and ends up across the other side again. Then JW reverses again but this time into the path of Rik Briant. I've reduced the penalty as it is very difficult for you to see other cars approaching there. Think about the move you need to make and take your time, just flooring the throttle in the hope of ending up the facing the right way causes others incidents.


TUNNEL Entrance: Andy Short & Bryce Allen

AS passes BA before the tunnel entrance but over cooks it and spins out as he passes and BA crashes into AS.

Racing incident


Rik Briant had 2 SR's this lap but only stopped once for them.

  • RIKBRIANT — Failing to take Stop & Go — 6 places lost


LAP 3, MIRABEAU: Alan Walker & Jonathan Ball

AW following JB on the approach to the corner, AW brakes a tad later than ususal, realises he's going to make contact and tries hard to take the inside line to avoid JB but slides into the side of JB spinning him off.


LAP 4, MIRABEAU: Bryce Allen & Rik Briant

BA leaves his braking too late and rear ends RB causing him to spin out.


GAZOMETRES: Rik Foster & Colin Paxton

RF T-bones Colin in the middle of the hairpin.


LAP 5, St.DEVOTE: Dave Taylor & Mike Cooper

MC enters the corner in his normal way but DT doesn't slow in time and rear ends MC


CHICANE: Jonathan Boughton & Andy Short

Andy is slow getting down to and through the chicane and catches a hay bale, JB behind can't avoid the contact.

50/50 Racing incident


LAP 6: Bryce Allen & Rik Briant

RB loses the back end on entry and just might have regained it but BA was close and contact spun RB out

50/50 Racing incident


GAZOMETRES: Rik Foster & Noel Kellett

NK goes wide and catches the hay 3/4 of the way through, RF behind close behind also rounding the corner on the same wide line manages to slow the car in time. RF tries hard to keep and inside line but contact happens and RF's engine explodes.

Rik Foster - Racing incident


James White & Rik Briant

JW jams himself into the hay bales, reverses back as Mick Smith takes a wide line through so can't get past JW, contact was inevitable between these two. Then Rik Briant enters the corner, under a green flag, threading his way through after JW had reversed but as passes between them JW gets a high speed warp bounce back off the inside Armco and into RB, who bursts into flames.

James White - Bad rejoin - Warp incident


LAP 11, MASSENET: Colin Paxton & Noel Kellett

CP is in front of NK going up Beau Rivage but disapears from view. Both drivers report a different set of events for this incident. Unfortunately neither driver included a local replay of the event, so I have to call it from the server replay, where it is quite clear that there is a massive warp with CP diasapearing for 9 secs. going up Beau Virage and re-apearing 1/2 way through Massenet. From the server replay, CP re-appears and has 4 secs. of normal track time with NK clearly in view ahead but CP rear ends him which is a penalty but i'll give CP the benefit of the doubt. Please send in your local replays or it's gets called by the server replay!

Warp incident


LAP 13, GAZOMETRES: Alan Walker & Dave Taylor

DT ahead loses it under braking, rams the hay and bounces back slightly. AW behind enters the corner, also on a very wide line and probably would have ended up in the hay also and can't avoid hitting DT who ends up upside down and as to shift R.

50/50 Racing incident


LAP 18, St DEVOTE: James White & Rik Briant

JW loses it in the corner and ends up facing the right hand wall, he then reverses back out through the middle of the corner, too fast and without checking, hits the Armco the other side and bounces back across and collects Rik Briant. I mentioned this earlier, take your time and think about the best way to recover without taking out anyone else. I've reduced the penalty as it is very difficult for you to see other cars approaching there.

Moderator's Report

Lap 1, Turn 2

Dave Taylor & Jonathan Boughton: entry to Turn 2, DT in does not take account of the first lap caution and early braking of the pack and rear ends JB sending him off and down the banking. I've increased the penalty as the first lap incidents have been discussed ad nauseam and these rear end shunts need to stop becoming a regular feature of the races.

Gareth Huges & Dave Taylor: Gareth Huges can't avoid the incident and hits the now sideways DT and DT has to take a Shift R. Racing incident

Mike Cooper & Gareth Huges: MC does really well and avoids getting caught up in the incident unfolding in front of him, but a warp contact to GH in front of him spins GH.

Rik Foster & Andy Short: RF was dicing too close with AS through T1 towards T2 leaving no room for any error. AS ahead manages to slow and avoid the cars infront on seeing the incident but RF being too close rear ends him and sending AS off the track needing an SR. As mentioned above, this is lap 1 - T2. RF is far too impatient and refuses to leave the required room needed on lap 1.

Alan Paterson & Mike Cooper: AP can't avoid the incident and slams into the back of MC and he discos at this point. Racing incident

Shift R's for: Jonathan Boughton, Mike Cooper, Alan Paterson, Andy Short and 2 for Dave Taylor.

Jonathan Boughton - had a valid claim for an Innocent Victim Shift R), so no SnG taken or required.

  • Dave Taylor — Rear ending J. Boughton — 3 places lost
  • Richard Foster — Rear ending A. Short (plus previous warnings) — 4 places lost


Dave Taylor: Shift-R's from an unsighted position down the banking and lands on top of Alan Paterson but DT gets the worst of it and flies off again up the other banking this time and lands facing the wrong way. Then DT takes another SR but i don't know why, impatience i suspect? You must leave time for the other cars to leave/pass the incident area before you Shift R).


Lap 3, Hairpin: Dave Taylor takes his 3rd self imposed SR and exceeds the limit.

  • Dave Taylor — Exceeding Shift R limit — 0 places lost


Lap 4, Turn 2: Chris Rae & Bob Wright

CR follows BW through T1 where BW loses control on the exit, gets it back again and then loses it again through T2, bouncing off the inside kerb and over to the right hand side dirt. To CR it looks like BW is going to go off and down the banking but BW recovers it at the last moment, CR not expecting BW to recover continues through the corner as normal but hits BW's rear left sending them both off, BW loses 3 places. Prior to the contact, CR had enough time to react to this building situation before the corner contact and so I will impose a penalty but reduced because of loss of control of BW's car.

BW's car spins up and along the left hand banking after the corner, then with the car almost at rest BW had the opportunity to stop the car safely on the apron but instead chose to let it slowly drift back across the track and down the opposite banking, crossing the track in front of an approaching Jonathan Boughton, this was a very close call, please take care to control the car after an incident by not endangering other drivers. CR Shift R's and starts to drive off, while BW drives back up the banking onto the track and into the path of CR, spinning CR off and down the banking to lose another place. I've reduced the penalty because BW didn't have much time to see that CR had only just SR'd before BW pulled out, please check carefully using left/right views.

  • Bob Wright — Dangerous rejoin — 1 place lost
  • Chris Rae — Rear ending Bob Wright — 1 place lost


Lap 8, Rik Foster takes his 3rd self imposed Shift R and exceeds the limit.


Bob Wright ignores the SnG after the L6 SR.

  • Bob Wright — Failing to Stop and Go after Shift-R — 6 places lost


Bob Wright ignores the SnG after the L12 SR.

  • Bob Wright — Failing to Stop and Go after Shift-R — 6 places lost


Lap 15, T1, Rik Foster & Alan Paterson

RF (-1 lap) follows a very wide AP through T1, AP recovers off the dirt and back across onto the right hand side racing line for T2 but then moves back across to the left again, off the racing line and at a reduced speed for T2. RF following doesn't make any speed adjustment to account for AP's erratic, offline, slow corner entry and as if AP isn't there RF takes the entry into T2 and gets alongside AP where contact is made. RF comes of worse and has to SR, while AP slides but then recovers and continues. RF had enough time to respond to AP's loss of control, reduced speed and incorrect line long before the corner entry but either chose not to respond or didn't understand what was happening, so a penalty is in order to reinforce the need to understand what is happening in front of you.

  • Richard Foster — Over ambitious passing attempt (plus previous) — 5 places lost


Rik Foster: throughout this and most of the previous races your car control has been quite poor, including: disregard to other drivers on rejoining, not staying off the racing line when recovering, repeatedly falling off the circuit, repeated hitting of barriers, late braking, rear end shunts and generally not being aware of situations occuring around you.

  • Richard Foster — Persistent poor driving — 1 race ban (suspended)

Moderator's Report

Lap 1, Grid

Alan Paterson gets a storming start and passes 2 cars but then T1 Woodcote is looming and the rest of the cars are slowing down while Alan is still accelerating, Alan glances of the side of Mike Copper, so lucky to get away with it. Alan then bounces of Mikes car and slams into the pit wall and slides down it scrubbing off enough speed to join the corner entry with the rest of the field. You managed to pass 3 cars before T1. It was very risky and mostly an out of control lurch, saved only by the pit wall, please exercise more care in future as the Lap 1 incidents are all too common, through lack of care.


L1, Maggotts: Jason Robinson & Dave Taylor

The field slows and lines up for left turn but Jason doesn't join in with the favoured method of slowing early to avoid hitting each other on lap 1 ;-) and promptly rear ends Dave, flipping him and causing him to take a Shift R. 5 cars were taken out through this and it's another Lap 1 T1/2 incident!! We need to take extra care to be aware of the obvious slower speeds and bunching into the corners that are part of Lap 1.

  • blito — Rear ending D. Taylor (plus previous warnings) — 5 places lost
  • Dave Taylor — Failed to Stop and Go — 6 places lost


Sharon Cullen & Noel Kellett

Sharon keeps to the left of Noel through Copse and towards Maggotts where she pulls alongside Noel prior to the corner turn in point. Noel has the normal outside racing line while Sharon continues on and takes the inside line and goes through side by side. Noel got a split second glimpse of the nose of Sharons car appearing mid corner. Noel took a wide through to allow for both cars but there wasm't enough room for both cars as Sharons entry speed from the inside meant she took all the racing line on exit to get through. A warp from Sharons car nudged Noel off the track, where he had to wait for the rest of the field to pass before he could rejoin. This was a very risky move for lap 1, T3 as Noel couldn't see Sharon through Copse and towards Maggotts as she kept out of his mirrors, but the real point here is, if you decide to go side by side though a corner then you must leave room for the other driver to also get through the corner. Even without the warp contact Noel would still have been pushed off the track as Sharon left him no room.

  • Sharon Cullen — Bad overtake (plus previous warnings) — 1 place lost


Lap 2, Maggotts

Bryce Allen blows his engine approaching T2 and spins off onto the right hand grass. He waits for most of the field to pass and must have got bored waiting and Shift R's with 3 cars about to pass his position. Now either he knew that his car would land off the racing line or was just very lucky but either way it's a thoughtless and dangerous move disregarding the other drivers. I've reduced the penalty because you didn't actually take anyone off or cause them to take avoiding action but it's a selfish move and had the potential to cause a big accident.

  • Greystreak — Bad Shift R (plus previous warnings) — 1 place lost


Farm Straight

Chris Rae goes wide onto the grass through Abbey keeps the speed up and rejoins the track, seeing Mick Smith in his mirrors he leaves room for him pass down the inside before moving back over onto the racing line but then Chris continues to move over in front of Alan Walker so very nearly taking him out. This is the classic one behind in the mirrors limitation of GPL that you must remember.


Lap 4, Start Finish straight, Dave Taylor & Gareth Huges

Both drivers are side by side and approaching Woodcote, Dave slowly drifts right whilst Gareth slowly drifts left, resulting in a strange collision that causes Dave to disco whilst Gareth carries on unhindered. Warp incident


Lap 7, Stowe, Mick Smith & Alan Walker

Mick approaches on the outside and takes a wide line round keeping slightly behind Alan through the corner, as they straighten up for the exit a warp contact throws Mick off. Warp incident


Lap 9, Becketts, Jonathan Boughton & Andy Short

Andy was struggling round the circuit and about to be lapped by the 3rd place Jonathan, who approaches the corner with Andy a fair distance ahead of him, Jonathan brakes earlier than normal and sees no reason to expect Andy ahead to do anything different but Andy brakes very early and slows more than usual and this catches jonathan out and he rear ends Andy. If it's the first time you come across a backmarker then care needs to be taken as you don't know what to expect from their entry line or braking points. Conversly if your are letting someone lap you then make a clear indication of your intention to the lapping driver, don't just brake on the racing line expecting them to know that's your intention. Andy has to Shift R. 50/50 Racing incident

  • Andy Short — Failed to Stop and Go — 6 places lost


Lap 14, Stowe, Andy Short

Andy, 2 laps adrift, is lapped by 11th Place driver Mike Cooper then imediately by 1st place driver Jonathan Ball on the approach to Chapel. On the straight to Stowe Andy re-passes Mike Cooper and spins off in front of him. Racing the lapping drivers is not considered the best thing to do, unless of course you feel you have a real chance of unlapping yourself, but doing so and just spinning off in front of them possibly ruining their race is considered to be bad form.


Lap 16, Club, Alan Paterson & Jason Robinson

Alan slows and takes a wide line to let lapping driver Jason Robinson pass him through Stowe. Alan follows Jason upto club, Jason goes wide through the corner and Alan goes for the pass as Jason is slow getting out of the corner but Alan drives into the rear right of Jasons car spining them both. Challenging the lapping car that you've just let through is rather pointless and careless driving.


Lap 20


Bob Wright in 6th place, disapears mid way through Woodcote and reapears at Copse the server then drops him for the rest of the race and starts winding back his pit board position to shown to Bob, he then gets shown blue flags and he lets a place go because of it. Nothing can be done about that other to know who is around you and take a gamble on being right and ignoring the blue flags. Bob actually finshed in 9th spot. He also had to take a SnG on the last lap for a blown engine but Bob had enough time in hand over Mike Cooper in 10th spot to retain his 9th place.


Lap 21, Chapel, Alan Paterson & Andy Short

Alan goes way wide through Maggotts and only recovers back to the track right at the entry point for Becketts and takes the corner very slowly with his 2 inside wheels over the kerbing. Behind Andy Short passes Alan through Beccketts and gets more than a cars length ahead of Alan and starts turning in for the left hand corner. Alan now back upto speed and with Andy in full view ahead of him takes the racing line through the corner and into the side of Andy. Alan comes of worse spinning out of the circuit.

  • Allan Paterson — Overly aggressive overtake (plus previous warnings) — 3 places lost


Maggotts, Alan Paterson (L22) & Mick Smith (L24)

Mick and Chris Rae are invlolved in a close race for position on the last lap, through Copse they are joined by a -2 laps Alan recovering from a spin. Alan hogs the racing line while recovering and races Chris and Mick up to Maggotts. Chris passes him on the inside OK and gives himself room to take the corner. Alan has now slotted himself between Chris and Mick prior to the turn in point for Maggotts. Alan then pulls across onto Mick closely following Chris through the corner. Mick takes avoiding action and clatters over the inside kerbs, whilst Alan then chases after Chris to Becketts. Strickly speaking Alan did have the racing line for Maggotts and should be allowed to take the corner unhindered. Mick on the other hand was racing with Chris and was half a car length past Alan before the turn in point. Both drivers forgot about the one behind rule. Looking at Alans race he probably wouldn't have let Mick through even if he could have seen him, Mick should have realised that Alan probably hadn't see him and held off. But Alan was recovering, 2 laps down and in last place and he should been more aware, kept off the racing line until back up to speed and let these cars pass to continue their race. I'll reduce the penalty because you probably couldn't see Mick behind you, although i'll never know as you didn't send in an incident report with client replay, please adheare to the rules and send a report in.


Alan Paterson seems to have been on a mission to harras the lapping drivers and generally causing problems by chasing, racing, locking and spining in front of. Please pay attention to your position in the race compared to the other cars around you.

Moderator's Report

Complaints: Drivers chatting during qualifying again! I've mentioned this 3 times now and I promised some penalties for those suffering with verbal dioreha. Well you can breath a sigh of relief because I forgot to set the server to save the chat log, but i will from now on so look out!!


L1 T1

RB & JB are side by side as the track narrows for T1, JB moves over from the left as the track narrows and gets a nose ahead lead but moves too far over to occupy the centre of the track, JB's not clearly in the lead and this has the effect of squeezing RB. RB stayed on the right all the way from the grid and shortly after JB moves over to the middle, RB's sees JB and his car does little jiggle to the left hitting JB's rear left, turning JB him sideways pushing into the rear of Ian Fawcetts car. This is a difficult one to call, JB could be seen as unecessarily sqeezing RB and it appears that RB jumped when JB appeared close to him and that caused him to veer left. So I'm calling it a racing incident as there was no real single cause to this one.

After the above incident, RB from 3rd place was stranded upside down in the middle of T1 causing a major obstruction and with the rest of the field trying to squeeze past. RB waited 3 secs. before SR'ing, oddly enough in this instance SR'ing immediately would have worked out much better but that how it goes sometimes. RB landed on the nose of Rik Fosters car, this didn't seem to have any effect on RF's as he was still recovering and had just started to make moves to get away and it didn't impede RF's progress. RB's car then slid backwards and appeared in front of Colin Paxton who caught RB's rear, but that made little to no difference as CP couldn't have seen RB's car either way because of the 4 in front rule. So all in all RB's had to SR to remove himself as the main blockage from the corner. I know it's always a difficult call under these situations and you have to make the decision that seems right at the time and in this case it was the right thing to do.
Rik Briant - Bad Shift R - Caution

Unfortunately JB's SR was different, JB was off the circuit on the outside of T1 and not causing any obstruction. JB waits for quite a while but just not long enough, another 2-3 secs. and it would have been clear. JB lands on top of Jason Robinson, who's engine then blew & Andy Short who up to that point had done a good job of avoiding it all was sent spinning.

Jason Robinson slows for the incident but then accelerates again and clips the rear right of Chris Rae.

Colin Paxton slows but then accelerates again for an "online" gap and by the magic of online racing and the 4 in front rule! Rik Briant's sideways car appears in front of him, which he can't avoid hitting.

Dave Taylor, slows enough to avoid it all but then keeps a few thousand revs on and joins the melee by hitting the rear of Alan Walker.

CAUTION the drivers above still need to be aware of the features of online racing and the Lap1 T1 situation. (1) keep off the loud pedal until you know it's clear to move through the incident. (2) Remember, you can only see 4 cars ahead, so you may be driving into an incident that's still going on but you can't yet see. (3) PATIENCE

There was the usual tangles and cars bumping and barging each other and more spins and offs when trying to get going again but nothing worth mentioning here. Apart from saying that all the drivers should be checking their side views before/during rejoining the track to avoid creating this kind of continued incident.


Lap 4 - T2, Mick Smith & Alan Walker

Alan in front and Mick close behind head for T2. Mick makes a slight misjudgement of his braking and Mick rear ends Alan. Alan does a 360 and continues unhindered no lost places.


Lap 5

Noel Kellett had to Shift R on the last lap and gets a 10 second penalty in place of the SnG, which means he loses 4th place to Bryce Allen, who managed to cross the line inside that 10 secs.

Alan Walker takes 3rd Shift R.

  • Alan Walker — Exceeding the Shift R limit — 0 places lost
  • Noel Kellett — Shift R on the last lap — 10.000 seconds added

Dave Taylor: no fault Shift R available to Dave but he didn't claim it nor did he take the SnG for it

Sharon Cullen: took a Shift R but didn't take the Stop n Go

  • Alan Walker — Failing to Stop and Go after Shift-R — 6 places lost
  • Dave Taylor — Failing to Stop and Go after Shift-R — 6 places lost
  • Sharon Cullen — Failing to Stop and Go after Shift-R — 6 places lost


Lap 16, Sharon Cullen

Sharon pulls into the pits for a SnG for the previous laps Shift R but it was a slow drive through rather than a Stop and Go.

Caution - Stop and Go must be what they are called.

Moderator's Report

Lap 1, Lesmo 1, Robert Burton & Rik Briant

Robert is going hell for leather to pass anyone in front of him. He passes Mike Cooper on the inside of Curve Grande by riding over the kerbs to get past him, Mike physically jumped seeing this car pass him on the grass and only just managed to hold it together, well done. Then Robert attempts a pass to the right on Rik after Della Roggia. But this ends in tears, Robert moved out to pass Rik but then can't keep the car in a straight line and runs into the back of Rik's rear right wheel. I've increased the penalty because of your numb nuts style of driving with complete lack of care and judgement on lap 1, that ruined it for so many others so early on in the race.

Rik Briant - No fault Shift R available, not claimed - took the SnG instead.

Mike Cooper, Sharon Cullen & Andy Short could not avoid getting caught up in the carnage, all had to Shift R. SnG required for these Shift R's

Well done to Jonathan Boughton & Jason Robinson for excellent car control and managing to find a safe path through the wreckage.

Simon Loynes ends up facing the wall from the right hand grass before Lesmo 1. He waits for 2 cars to pass from left to right in front of him but then he turns left and sets off in the wrong direction, passing 2 other cars going by him in the opposite direction!! He realises just before entering Curve Grande again and does a U-Turn. Every driver at this level and certainly in this league is expected to be fully conversant with the direction of travel at each circuit, OK perhaps it can get a bit confusing at the Ring or Spa sometimes but at Monza!! Simon completed the first lap and then retired himself, well done for that.

  • Burtoner — Rear ending R. Briant — 3 places lost
  • Oilseal — Failing to Stop and Go — 6 places lost
  • Sharon Cullen — Failing to Stop and Go — 6 places lost
  • simon loynes — Driving the circuit backwards — excluded


Lap 4, Lesmo 1&2, Rik Briant & Robert Burton

Rik is recovering from a spin through Lesmo 1 is back up to speed for the entry into Lesmo 2 when Robert behind makes a last ditch attempt pass up the inside of Rik into Lesmo 2. Rik is commited to the racing line when Robert passes him and slides wide into Rik's front right wheel taking him out.

  • Burtoner — Overly ambitious overtake — 2 places lost


Lap 4, Parabolica

Robert Burton blows his engine through the turn; instead of pulling off the racing line to Shift R he just slams on the brakes and does the Shift R on the racing line exit of Parabolica. Sharon Cullen behind did really well to miss the stationary car. Think of the other drivers in the race and get off the racing line if there's a problem in future.


Lap 7, Robert Burton & Alan Walker

Robert, in last place is being lapped by the leaders, does a 180 another 180 and then a 360 spin off the Armco through Lesmo 1 which leaves him facing the right way again, where he continues towards Lesmo 2. Behind and to the inside of Robert was lan Walker taking avoiding action to miss Rik Foster's car bouncing off the Armco towards him. Alan avoids this by successfully by riding the inside kerb and continuing on the inside line toward Lesmo 2. Robert, recovering instead of keeping to the left moves over to the right and makes side contact with Alan leaving him upside down Alan has to Shift R.

Alan Walker - No fault Shift R available, not claimed - took the SnG instead.

  • Burtoner — Bad rejoin — 3 places lost


Lap 8, Parabolica, Ian Fawcett & Robert Burton

Approaching the braking point for the last turn, Ian in front is rammed from behind by Robert who missed his braking point by good margin.

Ian has a No fault Shift R available

  • Burtoner — Failed to take eight Stop and Gos! — 0 places lost


Robert Burton - Distinct lack of car control, inability to lap the circuit without spinning off, Little if any understanding of the etiquette or rules of racing, constantly blocking & weaving, disregard for the other drivers in the race, causing most, if not the whole field, to take avoiding action wondering how to safely pass the mobile chicane and with no knowledge of the UKGPL rules. I stopped counting the incidents that this driver was causing as there was no more penalties that would have made any difference to your finishing position and frankly I'd made my mind up before the end of your race. Your standard of driving IMO is not up to the UKGPL required standards.

The Division 6 drivers have been through a hell of a lot this season, through their baptism of fire with my not helping by shouting at them all the time (you have to be cruel to be kind ;o) They and I are now reaping the rewards of all their hard work, pain and suffering by enjoying some good, clean, close racing and I'm not going to see all there efforts ruined at the last race by a loose canon that needs to spend a lot more time learning the art of racing before being allowed back into another UKGPL race. It's too late for Monza but I can stop it happening at Snetterton.

  • Burtoner — Repeated poor driving standards — 1 race ban — excluded

Moderator's Report

Alan Walker & Nick Morgan (pos. 7 & 8)

Both drivers leave the grid side by side. AW pulls ahead and is looking to pass Sharon Cullen to the middle of the track but AW has to back out, this moves him to the left, leaving little room for NM, this puts him side by side again with NM but much closer now. NM's car then does a definite swerve to the right and contact is made taking both cars off the track. This was a difficult one to call but in the main it was NM's car that made the deciding move.


Lap 1, Riches, Nick Morgan & Simon Loynes

Simon recovered from the outside grass into T1 and drove across the track straight onto the racing line instead of keeping to the outside of the corner. NM behind takes the corner only to find his path blocked by GD and can't avoid running into him.


L1 Riches, Dave Taylor & Jason Robinson

JR gets a good start and moves to the inside line for T1. DT & JR are side by side entering Riches, DT moves over to take the corner and into the side of JR. JR was ahead of DT before the corner but I suspect that DT did not see JR there. The lesson here is unless you're absolutely sure that there's no one to your side you should hold your line to the side of the track you started on and through the first corner until you can see where everyone else is.

  • Dave Taylor — Contact with D. Taylor (plus previous warning) — 1 place lost


L1, Hairpin, Alan Walker & Gareth Hughes

Approaching the hairpin AW ahead brakes with GH behind braking and looking perhaps to outbrake AW into the hairpin. But GH brakes whilst still behind AW and looses control of the car and slides into the rear right wheel of AW's car, taking AW out, AW's engine blew from the rear end crash. No fault SR available. Not claimed Stop n Go taken.


Lap 3

  • Nick Morgan — Failure to stop and go — 6 places lost


Lap 4, Sear, Dave Taylor & Nick Morgan

DT is behind NM on approach to Sear, DT misjudged the braking point and line and ran into the rear of Nick Morgan. NM had to SR to continue. No fault SR available to NM. Not claimed nor SnG taken.

  • Dave Taylor — Rear ending N. Morhan (plus previous yellow) — 3 places lost
  • Nick Morgan — Failure to stop and go or claim no fault Reset — 0 places lost


Lap 6


Lap 7 (Gareth you've probably forgotten the rules, have a another look at them ;-)


Lap 10, Russell, Jonathan Ball

JB rounds the left hander to enter the S/F straight and finds NM sideways across the track. JB takes avoiding action to the left to stop slamming into NM and crosses the grass and hits the banking throwing him into the air and ending up stranded on the fencing. JB has to take an SR to continue and claimed a no fault SR. Unfortunately the rules are quite specific on this and running into an incident ahead of you, that causes you to take an SR does not qualify for a NO FAULT SR. It's far too difficult to try and guess what might have happened or could have been if the driver had just done this or that to avoid it so that's why the exclusion rule is there. It's down to definate contact from someone else that causes you to have to SR, as was the case for Noel above, he also ran into an incident ahead of him but decisively he was then hit by a loose canon spinning across the track and taking him out and then he took the SR.

  • Jonathan Ball — Failing to Stop and Go after Shift-R — 6 places lost


Lap 11, Esses

Gareth Hughes bad rejoin causing Simon Loynes to take avoiding action and lose a place.


Lap 19, Riches, Mick Smith & Alan Walker Pos. 4 & 5

MS & AW head for T1 with MS ahead, AW goes for the inside pass and pulls along side MS just short of level before MS starts his turn in. AW continues through with the pass but takes up a position nearer the centre of the track to take the racing line, effectively squeezing MS out, rather than keeping to a definite inside line and ensuring there's enough room for both to get through. MS is aware that AW is there and tries to leave enough space for AW but MS has to pull into the corner to save going wide himself and puts his front wheel between AW's wheels, both come off the track. As it was MS could have either conceded the corner earlier, backed off and taken a definite outside line or as both were racing for position MS could have moved over and claimed the corner earlier preventing AW from attempting the pass. AW should have either taken a definite inside line allowing them both to get through the corner side by side or have thought better of it and left the pass for another corner. I see it as a late passing attempt, it would have been ok if AW left enough room for both to get round the corner together.


Lap 24, Hairpin, Rik Foster & Jonathan Boughton

Last lap and RF (pos.5) is closing on JB (pos.4) on approach to the hairpin. JB brakes normally for the hairpin but has a backmarker in front of him preventing him making any further progress until after the corner. RF brakes in time but probably didn't take into account the backmarker in front of JB causing the slight bottleneck through the hairpin and RF rear ends JB. JB was pushed wide into the hay bails and recovers OK while RF carried on through and took JB's 4th place.
