Moderator's Report

Two drivers were doing Shift R's during qualifying - Robert Burton and Chris Bull.

Everyone was specifically reminded in the pre race briefings and it's not as though anyone could have missed the repeated reminders to read the UKGPL rules before joining the races, come on now, pay attention at the back.

  • Bullypenalty — Shift-R during qualification — excluded
  • Burtonerpenalty — Shift-R during qualification — excluded


Green flag and everyone got off the of the grid well, always a difficult part of the race, controlling all that pent up adrenalin, so well done there.


L1 - T1 Chris Bull & Clive Loynes

CB manages to pass several cars on the run up to T1 and then gets along side CL. CB gets a good overlap on CL and still with some overlap CB starts his turn in for T1 on the inside. CB keeps a decent tight line BUT then the obvious happens, CL, on the normal racing line, also pulls into the corner and makes contact with CB's rear left wheel.

In real life CB could rightly have expected CL to have see CB on the inside and for CL to have conceded the corner BUT this is not real life and CL could not see CB in his mirrors or from the front view at any time prior to the contact, because CB was constantly in CL's (GPL's) blind spot. This in turn led to a 3 car pile up behind as they try to avoid CB & CL's cars bouncing around Curva Grande.

This incident was caused by CB not allowing for GPL's limited visibility issues, You must understand the limitations of GPL and that CL couldn't see him and that he was always going to pull across into the corner and onto CB's car. Essential reading for online driving and with UKGPL is the "Recommended Driver Behaviour" http://homepage.powerup.com.au/~philmak/gplac/rec_driver_beh.htm read it all, it's very enlightening.

Turn 1 - Lap 1 is the place most likely for an incident to occur and that's why everyone must take extra precautions and make sure to leave room for everyone else just in case something happens ahead of you or the races turn into T1 crash fests ruining it for everyone. This move by CB is considered to be aggressive and attracts extra penalty places over the normal side contact penalty.

  • Bullypenalty — Overly aggressive passing move — 3 places lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


Two drivers missed taking Stop & Go penalties after a Shift R.

  • Bully — Missed S&Gs (L7, L12, L14, L18) — 60.000 seconds added
  • Burtoner — Missed S&Gs (L1, L6, L11, L12, L14, L16) — 90.000 seconds added


L1 - T1 - Blito & Mike Cooper

MC sees the incident ahead of him unfolding and slows, behind ZB can't see it or slow quickly enough to avoid rear ending MC. Both go off and are joined by another running into them.

Moderator's Report

I'm issuing penalties here to demonstrate the penalty system to those who haven't seen it before, they are correct for the incidents but they won't actually apply in the S8 championship.


Robert Burton, you were involved in more than half of all the incidents in this race, though not all your fault, you need to be more aware of the cars around you in relation to your position in the race and be prepared to let them lap you. You must not try and race them or try to stay in front of them if, as in this case, you are several laps down.


L1 - T3 - Jason Robinson & Dean Holloway

JR takes a look up the inside approaching T3, i don't think JR was going for the pass but he allowed his front wheels to overlap DH's car and when DH turns into the corner they collide and as is always the case the driver on the outside gets pushed off the track. JR told me that warp was involved but he didn't include a CLIENT replay of the incident and the server replay doesn't show this warp. That's why it's important to always save the CLIENT replay to demonstrate any incidents that include warp etc. I'm reducing the penalty by 1 place as this was an unintentional move.

  • blitopenalty — Side by side contact — 1 place lost (plus 2 for penalty points)


L1 - 5A - Noel Kellett

NK loses it on entry into 5A and does a 180 between 5A and Moss. NK's now travelling backwards and reverses up against the outside Armco, still moving backwards NK keeps a hard left lock on so his car would reverse off the Armco and end up facing the right way again. NK's car reverses back out into the middle of the corner at the worst time in the race BUT as it turns out no one else actually came into contact with him, because Blito, behind him, loses his car on entry in sympathy effectively blocking anyone else from hitting NK's car. I've reduced the penalty to a warning as NK's move didn't actually cause anyone else to crash.

  • Noel Kellettwarning — Bad rejoin — also, 3 places lost for penalty points


L1 - 5A - Robert Burton & Richard Kings

RK slows for the hairpin and RB doesn't and he rear ends RK pitching him over the Armco and having to take an SR. Richard Kings took a SnG for the SR but he didn't have to as it was clearly not his fault.

  • Burtonerpenalty — Rear ending R. Kings — 2 places lost


L3


L3 - T9 - Gareth Hughes & Robert Burton

GH rejoins the track at T9 and RB behind runs in the rear of GH. Unlike CLs rejoin below, there was the space after T8 to check if the track was clear before rejoining But in defence of GH, RB did see GH rejoining and had plenty of time to avoid hitting GH, but didn't take early enough action. I've reduced the penalty to a warning as RB was also rejoining at the same time and GH gave the place to RB but be aware that this was a problem last season and more care must be taken when rejoining.


L4 - T9 - Clive Loynes & Mike Turner

CL rejoins just before T9, when MT is rounding T8. When CL sees MT behind he immediately moves off the track. MT saw the yellow flag through T8 and slowed but reacted a little late on seeing CLs car and lost control of his car spinning it. This is a difficult place to rejoin the track and CL did the best he could in the circumstances.

Racing incident


L6

  • Burtoner — Failing to Stop and Go after Shift-R — 15.000 seconds added


L13 - 5A - Jason Crellin & Robert Burton

JC first comes across RB (2 laps down) at T1 where he has to slow until he can see a way past him. RB falls off at T2 but immediately rejoins again in front of JC. JC then stays behind and entering 5A, RB ahead hits the inside kerb and bounces across onto the Armco, JC keeps moving towards Moss on the inside where RB rejoins again and turns in for Moss, they touch wheels as JC has a slight overlap amd RB spins. There was some confusion here for JC as he thought RB may have been letting him pass and RB doesn't seem to have been aware of the leader of the race trying to lap him.

Racing incident


L16 - T1 - Jason Robinson & Robert Burton

JR is behind RB entering T1, RB catches the inside kerb and bounces to the outside, JR stays behind but then RB loses the back end in the corner and starts to slide, JR also slides wide and they connect, both spin out.

Moderator's Report

A close qualifying session set everyone up for a close race and that's what we got. A really well driven race for the start of the new season, awareness and consideration for others was very good, all bar a couple of moments! Congrats to Dean on the win, Blito for 2nd and Noel taking 3rd and well done to everyone else making a good race of it. Tom Adams got the lead off the grid into T1 and led the race for the 1st 4 laps until his wheel packed up putting him out of the race, bad luck. Dean lost 5 places on L1 - T1 but some consistent driving got Dean back through the field to pass Jason Crellin when he spun from leading the race from L4 through L17. Noel from 5th off the grid got to 3rd place by L4 only to loose it back down to 9th but consistent driving got him back up to 3rd place on the last lap, it helped Noel when Jason Crellin took a SnG for a racing incident before crossing the S/F line on the last lap, bad luck Jason but a considered move from you! New driver Paul Skingley drove well and was up for a good 3rd spot but appeared to disco on L16, bad luck.

There were a couple of incidents but nothing outrageous but there was a couple of nearly bad rejoins, take care with these, you know how much we all hate being taken out of a race because someone else can't be arsed to look first! Thanks to all the drivers that took the trouble to send in an incident report and for saving and sending in their local replays with it.

Thanks to the D4 Race reviewers for being so prompt with their reports and for making my job so much easier. :-)


L1 - Grid - Alan Patterson & Bryce Allen

Green flag drops and A.P. lights up the rears and starts to slide across the track and into the rear right of B.A's car. All would have been OK but the field was late in getting away due to a couple of slow starters that backed up the field behind.

Advice - Please try and control the car off the grid, keeping it in a straight line, I know it's difficult when you can't hear your own engine.


L1 - Lesmo 1 - Alan Patterson/Gareth Hughes/Jonathan Boughton

A.P. follows G.H. & M.C. into the braking zone before Lesmo 1. M.C. slows a bit earlier as there's a spinning car ahead to his right. G.H. is close to the rear of M.C. and has to move slightly to the right to avoid rear ending M.C. A.P. is also close behind G.H. and was leaving it all a bit late for braking, he might have got away with it if G.H. hadn't had to move out, but he did, and in the end it was A.P. who let himself get too close and left it all too late to avoid any sudden changes ahead. G.H. was pushed into a spin off to the right and then he came back on the track and a warp contact took Jason Robinson off too. This is the first lap and so, well you know the routine by now!! The penalties are increased because at this stage of the race the likelihood of wrecking the race for so many others behind you is so great. Always take extra care on L1 to leave more space in case of something unexpected happening in front of you, also because the like hood of warp is greatly increased when this many cars are so close together.

  • Allan Patersonpenalty — Rear ending Gareth Hughes — 3 places lost (plus 2 for penalty points)


L1 - Parabolica - Chris Bull & Gareth Hughes

C.B. comes from a long way back to try and make a late inside passing move on G.H. into Parabolica. G.H. had already started to move across for his turn in when C.B. came alongside and tucked inside. G.H. knew that C.B. was somewhere alongside him but it all happened at the last moment and G.H. was probably concentrating on his line into the corner. C.B. probably could have made it stick but he had to back off to avoid running into the rear of Mike Turner ahead of him in the corner and this caused him to start sliding out into the path of G.H. turning in. G.H. had the right to start turning in and it was more a case of C.B. had to make sure that he kept a very tight line allowing G.H. to correct as soon as he saw him. There was always room to go 2 wide through there but C.B. didn't hold is inside line, G.H. could have given him more room, assuming he knew C.B. was there! I'm reducing it by 1 place as C.B. took a voluntary SnG to give the place back to G.H.

  • Bullypenalty — Side contact with Gareth Hughes — 1 place lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


L2 - S/F straight - Tim Brookes & Noel Kellett

T.B. drafts past N.K. along the S/F straight, Once past T.B. pulls back across right in front of N.K. causing him to back off to avoid the collision. No harm was done in the end, but there was no reason to move across so soon anyway.

Advice - Please be careful when moving back across that you have completely cleared the car behind.


L3 - Lesmo 2 - Alan Patterson/Simon Loynes/Bryce Allen & Mike Turner

A.P. runs out wide and gets stuck on the Armco, continues off the end and gets stuck in the hedge. S.L. rounding Lesmo 2 sees this, has the time but but doesn't move over to the right enough in case A.P. pops out of the hedge, which is often the case. He passes very close to A.P. and there's a warp contact which spins S.L. then A.P. bounces out of the hedge, B.A. magically drives through A.P's car and gets away with it, M.T. behind cant avoid A.P. as bounces out from the hedge into his path. At that slow speed I would have given A.P. a wide berth just in case!

Racing incident


L4 - Parabolica - Tom Adams

T.A. extracts himself from the sand trap in the middle of Parabolica and then drove straight across the track onto the racing line. You were very lucky to have not caused an incident as C.L. & A.S. just managed to miss you. Once you're off the circuit, you have absolutely no rights whatsoever to rejoin the circuit, regardless of the reason you find yourself off of it and then to rejoin impeding another driver. Your one and only priority is to make sure that you don't cause another driver to take evasive action or worse to crash into you or each other trying to avoid you. I've reduced the penalty as there was no contact but please be more aware in the future.


L4 - Parabolica - Alan Patterson & Chris Bull

A.P. goes for a late inside pass under C.B. into Parabolica. C.B. knew that A.P. was there but he was at full racing speed and needed all the track to make the turn himself yet he still tried to give A.P. some room but A.P. caught the inside kerb and bounced out into the path of C.B. turning in. C.B. spun off and took an SR! It would have been a free SR to C.B. but I can't tell if that was needed but as C.B. took a SnG for it there's no issue here.

  • Allan Patersonpenalty — Side contact with Chris Bull — 2 places lost (plus 2 for penalty points)


L5 - Lesmo 1 - Tom Adams & Andy Short

T.A. Passes C.L. on the outside just before the turn in for Lesmo 1, ahead of both of them was A.S. already turning in for the corner. T.A's move was all a bit too late, in trying to pass C.L. you had to keep your speed up and your braking late and in the hope that you could get all this done in time to miss A.S. ahead of you that was already well into the corner. T.A. rear ends A.S. I can't see any other extenuating circumstances so a penalty will apply.

Andy Short - You took a SnG after having to SR from the incident above. You didn't need to as it was obviously not your fault as you were rear ended.

  • Tom Adamspenalty — Rear ending Andy Short — 2 places lost


L9 - Lesmo 2 - Richard Kings

R.K. Ended up backed up against the outside Armco in the middle of Lesmo2. R.K. pulled out without checking his side view into the path of Andy Short that was rounding the corner. You did keep left and A.S. was able to adjust to you moving out. You were in a difficult position and had to get out of the way quickly so i'm not going to issue and penalty.

Advice - Please be aware of who else is on the track and use your look left right before setting off, you could install the GPLShift patch it's really useful.


L17 - Lesmo 1 - Jason Crellin

J.C. spins reacting to a spin in front of him entering the corner, does a 180 onto the inside grass verge and then freely allows his car to roll back onto the circuit on the exit of Lesmo 1, so he can turn round and get going again! That's just not on! you all know by now that if you must control your car to stop it from straying back onto the circuit again as it's very likely to cause an incident for someone else. Tim Brookes rounds the corner and just manages to adjust to avoid you. Although there was no contact, I'm still going to issue a penalty here as it was a completely avoidable judgement call to let the car drift back on to the track in a dangerous place.

  • Jason Crellinwarning — Bad rejoin — also, 3 places lost for penalty points


L18 - Alan Patterson

A.P. lost a wheel on the Parabolica Armco on L16. A.P. drove into the pits and SR'd, You still have to take a SnG for the SR end though you took it in the pits.


L20 - Lesmo 1 - Jason Crellin & Mike Cooper

J.C. comes up behind M.C. as they enter Lesmo 1, M.C. sees that J.C. is going to lap him and he keeps to the right after the corner. J.C. realises this and goes to pass him on the outside but just as he accelerates his rear end gets away from him then both cars wobble and get very close to each other then a small warp creates the side contact, spinning M.C. There was no pushing involved and J.C. was patient enough and this was a simple loss of control and warp.

Moderator's Report

There was a problem connecting to and staying connected to the server for this race. Some left the server and couldn't re-connect and it ended up with 18 qualifying but only 14 able to stay on the server to race, bad luck to all those that coundn't get back on to the server. Congrats to Noel for a fine drive, taking the lead into T1 and leading all the way to the chequered flag, to Dean for keeping his 2nd place after some trials during the race and well done to Tom for a considered and consistant run taking 3rd place on the podium.

Thanks to the D4 race reviewers Baz & Mick and we have a new volunteer on board for Div 4, in the form of James 'Jimmy Aardvark' Astley, taking the place of Tim Whiting.


L1 - T1 - Simon Loynes & Mike Cooper

Mike & Simon approach T1 side by side, Mike on the inside keeps a reasonable tight line and leaves room for Simon. Simon on the outside pulls across towards the apex and squeezes Mike. Mike's car does a slight warp towards Simons car, they contact and Simon goes off. Simons car was heading for the apex regardless of Mikes car being there and it's the warp that just makes the contact earlier that it would have been. Reduced by 1 place because of the warp.

  • simon loynespenalty — Side contact with Mike Cooper — 1 place lost (plus 3 for penalty points)


L1 - T1 - Jason Crellin & Chris Bull

The above incident caused Chris to slow down and hang back just in case, Jason also slowed with Chris ahead of him but then accelerated again but Chris hadn't because Mike Cooper was still trying to rescue his car off the kerbing. I'm reducing this to a warning as Jason did everything right but just allowed himself to get too close during this bottle neck.

  • Jason Crellinwarning — Rear ending Chris Bull — also, 4 places lost for penalty points


L1 - T1 - Several friends at the start of a journey

Jason recovers after getting 2 wheels off the track from the incident above on the outside of T1. Andy behind him has to move over to avoid Jason and does so, no problem here but then Colin finds himself alongside Andy and an easy passing opportunity. They were now 3 abreast on the exit of T1 and shout went up calling for the fag papers but before any measurements could take place, warp stepped in and settled it. Michael Turner & Richard Kings joined he party ahead of them. No one driver was really at fault here, so I'm calling it a warpy racing incident.

Racing incident


L1 - T5A - Jason Crellin & Michael Turner

Jason Follows Michael down towards the hairpin ans was still a good distance behind Michael before he got to his braking point. Jason then finds Michael going very slowly through 5A where Jason could have expected him to have been out of the way by that time.

Racing incident


L1 - T5A - Colin Paxton & Michael Turner

There's some confusion here abouts with several cars trying to get past each others slow or stationary cars. Michael is turning into Moss and is taking a wide line round the outside when Colin turns in behind him and he goes a little wide too. Warp pushes Michael off Colins car to the outside.

Warp incident


L5 - T5A - Paul Skingley & Mike Cooper

Paul is chasing Mike towards Moss, Paul is less than a cars length through T3/4 and then it comes time to brake for 5A, well it's not looking good from this close behind and then Paul leaves his braking till late and Mike gets punted off when Paul rear ends him. Too close, too late, two places.

  • Tifosi312penalty — Rear ending Mike Cooper — 2 places lost


L13 - T2 - Simon Loynes & Tom Adams

Tom passes Simon on the inside on the run up to the blind T2 left hander. Tom is well alongside before the turn in point and Simon could not have missed seeing him come alongside. But at the turn in Simon just pulls across into the side of Toms car. This is a basic manouvre and a judgement call from the driver, Simon was involved in the same type of incident on L1, you must give the other car room to run alongside should you both be in the corner at the same time. Simon came off worse after hitting Toms car and shoved himself off the track to the outside, as in the first incident.

  • simon loynespenalty — Side contact with Tom Adams — 2 places lost (plus 3 for penalty points)


L13 - Moss - Mike Cooper & Simon Loynes

Mike follows Simon down to T5A, Simon rounds T5A and then into the quick burst on the short straight to Moss. Simon goes to turn in for Moss but the car doesn't turn in and he slows a lot more than he has done in any of his previous laps and this catches Mike out and he rear ends Simon. Mike could have reasonably expected Simon to carry more speed through this corner.

Racing incident


L13 - Moss - Simon Loynes & Chris Bull

Simon's car ends up on the outside of the corner, facing into the apex after the incident above. Before he has time to look properly Simon just pulls out in front of Chris turning into Moss and Chris hits the front of Simon's car. Simon thought that it was clear from the view he had back down the track but he should have waited and used his look right view and he would have seen Chris rounding the corner. I'm reducing by 1 place because Simon thought the track was clear from his view but nevertheless it's a judgement call to pull out in front of another driver. I know in the heat of the moment it's difficult but it's those moments that were trying to educate drivers to think beofre they act.

  • simon loynespenalty — Bad rejoin — 2 places lost (plus 3 for penalty points)


L20 - Simon Loynes & Dean Holloway

Dean follows Simon into the Moss complex, There's a big warp then smoke, flames and tears follow. 2 free Shift R's available here as warp was the definate cause of this.

Warp incident.


Chris Bull & Simon Loynes seemed to have a problem with observing and reacting to the Blue flags being shown to them when Dean was trying to lap them. The penalty for this is quite clear but on this occasion i'm just going to make it advice. Please read the rules section about lapping drivers and what to do when faced with this situation and what else to look for to give the information you need to decide if the car behind is lapping or racing you. Also it's only possible to tell for sure if a driver is being shown a Blue flag from that drivers own client replay. So in the event that i feel that the Blue flags are being ignored, the standard penalty will apply, unless the lapped driver can produce a client replay proving to the contrary. This is, among other reasons, why it's important to save your client replays.

Moderator's Report

Congrats to Paul, Dean & Noel on filling the podium, some excellent navigation of the countryside. Thanks to Mick & Baz for reviewing the race.


L1 - Grid - Chris Bull & Richard Kings

Chris gets a flier off the green flag and finds Richard ahead blocking his progress so Chris moves right and continues to accelerate between Richard and Bryce, as he passes through this really tight gap he overcooks it and the back end breaks out causing him to swerve in front of Richards car and he takes him out. If this were just passing another car under acceleration and overcooking it then i would be give the benefit but it was off the grid, squeezing himself through a tight gap and that's just asking for trouble. Unless there's room it's too risky in GPL to attempt that sort of move off the grid with the increased chance of warp and with the limited visibility for the other drivers with them also struggling for grip off the grid trying to get their cars under way which made it a poor judgement call.

  • Bullypenalty — Side contact with Richard Kings — 2 places lost (plus 2 for penalty points)


L1 - S/F straight - James White & Jason Robinson

James takes a stroll down the S/F straight not wanting to get in anyone's way but he has cars behind him and he wanders across to the right hand side as the track narrows for T1, just as Jason behind with more speed goes for a pass on the right which he should be allowed to do. James keeps moving over, Jason keeps moving over too and eventually James makes contact with him. You're allowed to change lines and once there you must stick to it if someone behind is challenging you. But you're not allowed to just wander around the track if a car is challenging you. I'm certain he James was not trying to block Jason but just to get a better line into T1 and he didn't realise that Jason was attempting to pass him. Use you mirrors and pick a line so everyone knows your intentions.

  • James Whitepenalty — Side contact with Jason Robinson — 2 places lost


L1 - T1 Paul Skingley & Noel Kellett

Noel and Paul both get good starts and the head off for T1 with Paul following Noel. Noel has the outside line and brakes appropriately for L1 - T1, Paul behind takes the inside line and also slows early and carefully giving Noel room. Noel enters the corner still keeping an outside line but as he turns in his car starts to slide and this scrubs speed off Noels car just before the mid point in the corner. Paul behind had left more than enough room between them when he entered the corner on the inside. Paul sees Noels car slow and he immediately slows and adjusts but Paul then finds himself right alongside Noels car at the apex. Paul, rightly could not have expected Noels car to slow mid corner as it did and this created the closeness of the 2 cars at the apex, warp then brought the cars together and Noels car jumps off to the outside.

Racing incident


L1 - T2 - Mike Turner & Chris Bull

Mike was following Alan Patterson who in turn was following Chris Bull out of T2. They all accelerate hard for the straight but Chris overcooks it and loses the rear end and hits the right hand fence. Alan behind swerves left to avoid him and does so. Just as Mike behind accelerates out of the corner behind Alan he sees Alan swerving left across the front of him, Mike kept going and went to the right to avoid Alan and then he finds Chris's car that had slowed due to his loss of control and Mike rear ends Chris.

Racing incident


L1 - T3 - Clive Loynes & Tim Brookes

Clive follows Tim down the straight to T3, Clive moves over to the left but doesn't move over far enough as when Tim brakes, Clive runs into the back of Tim's car. Clive wasn't intending to outbrake Tim but just to worry him and this is a perfectly good place to outbrake someone or harass them into a mistake. But Clive needed to make sure it was safe to do this by giving himself more room on the inside should Tim brake earlier that he expects. Clive couldn't know where Tim brakes as it's the first time he's followed him into the corner, so he should have made sure he was clear to pass him should he brake earlier. Tim's initial back off point was pretty much the same as most of the drivers on L1 but once he'd backed off the throttle he then braked more and lost speed quicker than most, so reduced as this was a contributory factor in Clive running into him.

  • Clive Loynespenalty — Rear ending Tim Brookes — 1 place lost


L1 - T3 - Alan Patterson & Alan Walker

Alan leaves his braking to where i consider it to be just about as late as you can get and that's assuming your tyres are hot and there's no one in front of you should you get it slightly wrong under braking. In this case it was L1, cold tyres, heavy fuel and Alan could clearly see there several cars ahead bunching as they're trying to brake for T3. Result - Alan loses control of the direction of the car and slams into the rear of Alan Walker on the mitigation side there was an incident in progress and Alan Walker had slowed more because of it, so reduced by 1 place. At this early stage of the race there's no benefit in braking that late especially as Alan wasn't racing with someone else and trying to outbrake them.

  • Allan Patersonpenalty — Rear ending Alan Walker — 1 place lost (plus 4 for penalty points)


L1 - T3 - Alan Patterson & Chris Bull

After the incident above Alan P. is off the circuit on the grass on the outside of T3. Alan rejoins the track without being able to see if it was clear to do so, gets back on the track and accelerates hard and moves towards the racing line, where Chris is exiting the corner, Chris runs into the side of Alan's car. There's nothing i can see to mitigate Alan's reason for rejoining in that fashion.

  • Allan Patersonpenalty — Bad rejoin — 3 places lost (plus 4 for penalty points)


L1 - 4:55 - Clive Loynes & Jason Crellin

Clive loses it when he sees a car upside down ahead of him through the corner, he spins and his car ends up backing into the hedge, close to the upside down car. Before the car has stopped moving backwards, Clive pulls back out into the track and into the path of Jason that can't avoid hitting him. Clive did nothing to help himself here, he didn't stop the car and wait to look and just wanted to get back into the race ASAP.


L1 - Jason Robinson - Retires


L2 - 17:46 - Alan Patterson & James White

Alan loses it and ends up back in the middle of the track, he's trying hard to get under way but didn't realise the car was in neutral. James rounds the corner and sees the stationary car and he can hear it revving up to take off! but it didn't move and James slows to nearly a complete stop but bumps into Alan's car.

Racing incident


L2 - 19:13 - Alan Patterson & James White

Alan takes off after James from the incident above and soon realises that he's a lot quicker than James and is having to constantly brake early for him. James, ahead goes to enter a corner and slows to a completely inappropriate speed where Alan gets caught out and rear ends James.

Racing incident


L3 - 28:04 - Alan Patterson & James White

Exactly the same as the incident above.

Racing incident


L3 - Mike Turner - Retires


L3 - Jason Crellin - Retires


L5 Pflannzgarten - Richard Kings & Alan Walker

Alan has been following Richard for some time and has kept a decent gap behind as it was obvious that Alan was much quicker and Richard was struggling through the corners. Richard goes to turn into the blind left hand drop corner and loses control slightly as the back end comes round scrubbing off speed, Alan follows him into the corner but can't stop in time from hitting Richards car. Reduced because Alan had left a decent gap but was caught out by Richard slowing more than expected, also because Alan turned in to early himself for the corner and was on the grass when trying to brake to avoid Richard, also because Alan waits for Richard to recover and gives him back the place.

Moderator's Report

This was from the start a very good, clean race, well done all. Congrats to Dean, Paul & Noel on taking the first 3 places. Noel made a great recovery, going from 1st to 10th in the first 2 laps and then back up to 3rd by the end of the race. Paul led the race for the first 24 laps until a collision, where Jason Crellin then took over the lead only for him to disco 3 laps later, leaving Dean to take the win.


L1 - Alan Walker discos at The Loop - bad luck :(


L1 - The Loop - Tim Brookes & Simon Loynes

Tim, in 3rd place, goes off the outside of The Loop, hits the fence and continues towards the hay where Noel is also heading, backwards, towards them. Tim was a passenger in this one but the car was facing forwards and could still be steered as could be seen in the replay. Now Tim faces the choice of running into Noel's car that's up against the hay or trying to steer round it. Tim steers to avoid hitting Noel and his car jumps back onto the track, he immediately turns left to compensate for the slide and to get out of the way but unfortunately Simon coming round The Loop caught his back wheel on Tim's car sliding car and his car spun off. A difficult one to judge, but a driver would naturally steer away from colliding with another car. If Tim had decided that the best course of action would be to let his car run into Noels car then who knows what the outcome might have been, so Tim did the best under the circumstances.

Racing incident


L1 - Speed Trap - Mike Cooper & Chris Bull - replay clip - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ukgpl/files/Mirror-FOV-problem.rpy

This is a very convincing view from Mikes in car view from his mirrors, that there's no one on his inside. I've put the replay up to show how confusing the mirrors can be with their limited field of view. View the replay from Mike's in car view and look at the left hand mirror.

Mike passed a Lotus on his left after The Loop and then Chris also passed that same Lotus and went for an side pass on Mike into the Speed Trap. From Mikes view point, he could see the Lotus he'd passed in his left hand mirror and then see it go out of view to his left. Mikes wasn't sure if the car was beside him or not but the view from his left hand mirror before he turned left into the Speed Trap corner, confirmed that the Lotus had in fact dropped back, so Mike rightly assumed the driver had backed out of the pass so Mikes continues to turn into the apex only to find a Lotus right alongside him and crash. Chris slid out to the right a little going through the corner while Mike was pulling left into the corner. Chris might have thought that Mike should have left him more room and this would be true but for the very convincing views from his left hand mirror. Mike had to SR after this.

Racing incident


L3 - Mike Cooper

Mike has to loose 2 places because of a time penalty imposed. Mike either mistakenly thought he should have a free SR or just forgot to take the SnG. The SR was due to a passing move and they don't qualify :( please check up on the SR rules to make sure there's no misunderstandings.

Noel has to lose a place because of a time penalty imposed for not taking his SnG inside the regulation 2 laps after the SR. Please check up on the SR rules to make sure there's no misunderstandings.

L11 - Esses - Jason Robinson & James White

Jason is catching backmarker James through T1 & T2. Jason could see that the car ahead was struggling through the first part of the complex of corners and Jason quickly made up the gap to James's car as they entered the Esses. James was trying to keep to the left as best he could as he could Jason was rapidly closing on him, but through this section he struggled to keep the car on a predictable course. Jason had backed off behind James to correct for the speed difference and looking for a gap he saw James's car move a little to the left and took the opportunity to pass James here but it was all a bit too hurried and close and Jason put himself into difficult position letting his front left get too close to James rear right and little warp spun James's car round. Jason could have waited to make sure there was room to pass James after the Esses, as he was also in a faster car this wouldn't have caused much delay. I feel it was too pushy from Jason's point of view. Reduced because there was a little warp involved.

  • blitopenalty — Rear ending James White — 1 place lost (plus 3 for penalty points)


L13 - Big Bend - Tim Brookes & Andy Short

Tim follows Andy into Big Bend where Andy loses it and Tim gets taken out as Andy slides across the track.

Racing incident


L17 - The Loop - Chris Bull & James White

Chris slides off the top of The Loop all by himself. He hits the fence at a glancing blow facing forwards and slowly the car rotates with it's nose up against the fence as it slides down the grass, until it's eventually starting to travel backwards and this is the point where the judgement call took place. Chris puts on a full left lock which could only have one outcome of reversing the car back onto the track and that's exactly what happened. James rounding The Loop couldn't avoid running into Chris's car reversing into the corner and he was taken out. If Chris had made a positive effort by turning the wheel to the right to make sure the car stayed on the grass or just left the steering straight ahead then the car would have come to rest on the grass of it's own accord.

I have spent a good amount of time explaining over and over again to drivers about what our responsibilities are once the car leaves the track and what must be done to ensure no other drivers are endangered. By employing a little patience and a cautious approach to rejoining the track this can be avoided. This is Chris's first bad rejoin so i've decided to give Chris the benefit and not to impose the ban.

  • Bullypenalty — Bad Rejoin — 3 places lost (plus 3 for penalty points)


L24 - The Loop - Paul Skingley & Andy Short

Paul has caught up with backmarker Andy through The Loop. Paul accelerates hard out of The Loop and is committed to the racing line as he drifts to the outside but Andy ahead is slowing down on the racing line to let Paul lap him, this catches Paul out and he tries to swerve round him but he rear ends Andy. An unfortunate set of circumstances and completely accidental.

Moderator's Report

Correction to finishing order:

Jason Crellin started from the pit lane and was shown a lap down through the race, this is because he didn't cross the S/F line on the 1st lap. He actually finished the race in 4th place, well done for that.

An excellent and very clean race, not that Blito might agree after he did what he felt was the honourable thing to do and retired himself. Never mind Blito it just goes down that way sometimes, everyone else was in your way, coz you were just so hot ;o)

As has been mentioned on the main board, the driving standard in D4 is improving by leaps and bounds every race. This happens every season as everyone gets used to the idea of their being other drivers on the track apart from themselves. Well done everyone, at this rate you'll put me out of a job, please ;o)

Congrats to the usual suspects ;o) Noel & Dean & to Simon for his first podium finish. My thanks to Mick & Baz for reviewing the race.


L1 - T1 - Jason Robinson & Colin Paxton

Jason is chasing Colin towards T1, Colin backs off at the braking point and starts to brake but Jason doesn't back off at the same time and by the time he gets on the brakes it's too late and he rear ends Colin. L1 - T1 normally incurs an extra place penalty but there was no aggressive intention here just missing the braking point.

  • blitopenalty — Rear ending Colin Paxton — 2 places lost (plus 4 for penalty points)


L2 - Clubhouse - Richard Kings & Andy Short

Richard follows Andy towards Clubhouse, Richard leaves his braking till late to go for an inside pass on Andy. Andy, ahead, turned into the corner normally and headed for the apex as he rightly couldn't have expected Richard to make the pass this late stage. Richard now had entered the corner from an inside line and going faster than normal, so he had to brake harder as he turned in and the rear end of his car came round and hit Andy's car pushing him off the circuit. There was a little warp involved but this is to be expected because of getting that close that quickly.

  • Richard Kingspenalty — Over ambitious overtake — 2 places lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


L5 - S/F straight - Jason Robinson & Richard Kings

Jason is passing Richard on the right and just where the track narrows because of the pit wall, Jason moves over to the left and banged wheels with Richard. Richard was able to control his car and continue. Take care here as it often catches overtaking drivers causing them to move left.

Racing incident


L5 - Clubhouse - Jason Robinson & Bryce Allen

Jason chases Bryce towards Clubhouse, Bryce enters the corner normally but Jason is just way too hot entering the corner behind him and he tries to go inside Bryce once he realised he was going to hit him, but it was too late and he took out Bryce. Jason retired himself after this incident.

Moderator's Report

Correction to finishing order - Paul Skingley was lost by the server on lap 12 but in fact he won the race.

Congrats to Paul on wining the race and to Jason and Clive for 2nd and 3rd places. Another very clean race :-) at this very difficult track, well done everyone. Thanks to Baz & Mick for reviewing the race.


L1 - T3 - Alan Walker & Noel Kellett

Alan chases Noel towards the T3 left hander, Alan goes for an inside pass on the brakes but he doesn't leave enough room by taking a tight inside approach and he runs into the side of Noel's car as Noel turns in. Reduced by 1 because Alan lost control under braking. Noel gets a free SR.

  • Alan Walkerpenalty — side contact with Noel Kellett — 1 place lost


L1 - T1 - Bryce Allen & Dean Holloway

There's a lot of confusion entering the chicane and everyone did extremely well to sort themselves out. Bryce and Noel had a slight coming together as they both tried to funnel into the chicane.

L1 - Peralta - Noel Kellett & Alan Walker

Noel can't avoid running into Alan's car after it spun in front of him. Noel gets a free SR.

Racing incident


L7 - T3 - Jason Robinson & Simon Loynes

Jason makes decent inside approach to passing Simon into T3, but just as Jason is about to clear Simon's car, Simon loses the rear end of his and it swings the front round and catches the rear wheels of Jason's car.

Racing incident


L13 - Peralta - Bryce Allen & Dean Holloway

Dean got the run on Bryce and passes on the outside to Peralta after Bryce struggled through the last corner. Bryce knows Dean is passing and waits until he's passed him so he can move over behind Dean to enter the corner on the racing line. But just as Bryce moves over to line up behind Dean, Dean is on the brakes and Bryce runs into the rear of him. Bryce misjudged his braking point as it was unsighted and because of moving over at the same time. Reduced as it was just a bad timing thing, Bryce should have backed off earlier to avoid disappointment.

  • Greystreakpenalty — Rear ending Dean Holloway — 1 place lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


L15 - T1 - Mike Cooper & Alan Walker

Alan passes Mike round the outside of T1 to the chicane. It would have worked but for a warp contact as Alan passed close to Mike's front wheels and that spun Alan's car in front of Mike.

Warp incident


L17 - T1 - Mike Cooper & Jonathan Boughton

Maxim follows Mike into T1 and without trying finds himself alongside Mike on the inside. Maxim keeps to a tight inside line while Mike takes the normal racing line entry to the chicane. Both drivers put themselves into this difficult situation by allowing them to get too close to each other and then there was a little warp and both drivers spin out to the Armco.

Moderator's Report

Yet another excellent, clean and considered race take a bow everyone an example to all :-) Only 2 offences, Mike was probably having an off day at judging distance/speed bad luck Mike it happens that way sometimes :-(

Well done to Noel, Maxim & Paul, in that order, for filling the podium :-) and thanks to Mike & Baz for reviewing the race.


L1 - Tabac - Mike Turner & Richard King

Mike was a little late on the brakes on the run up to Tabac, probably thinking he could get through here a lot quicker, which i'm sure he could. Richard ahead had slowed to the same speed at the same place as the preceding 5 drivers, making sure he'd left enough space for any surprises. Mike wasn't going excessively quick but as it was L1 he should have been more aware of the cars ahead taking it easy through corners on the first lap. There was no outrageous moves or iffy late passing attempts here, just a mis-calculation in the difference in speed and braking points. I would have reduced it to a 0 place penalty if Mike had taken a voluntary SnG giving the place back to Richard. Richard gets a free SR.

  • Michael Turnerpenalty — Rear ending Richard Kings — 1 place lost


L24 Gazometres - Mike Turner & Andy Short

Andy is turning his car around after losing it on the entry of the hairpin and is just slowly pulling round the outside of the corner, staying off the racing line. Mike rounds the last left hander and sees Andy turning across the track. Mike had time to slow the car and deal with it in an effective manner but instead of braking Mike pulls to the inside to cut in front of Andy but is going too fast and just slams into the hay and at the same time hits the front of Andy's car, turning Andy's car again. This was a rather impatient move causing another car to contact with Andy.

Moderator's Report

For fear of repeating myself but hear i go again, excellent racing all. Clean, considered and a pleasure to watch, take yet another bow. Grats to Paul, Noel & Dean and to everyone for making it such a good race. Thanks to Mick & Baz for reviewing the race.


L1 - Hondenvlak - Jason Robinson & Clive Loynes

Blito gets a wheel on the grass and runs off the circuit at the previous right hander and manages to stop it doing a 360 but then finds himself heading back to the track. But Blito doesn't manage to control the re-entry and he lunges back onto the track and into the side of Clive sending him off the circuit. I feel that Blito had little choice once he'd gone off and was sliding sideways. If he had managed to straighten the car up he probably would still have launched himself over the hill or off the side of it and might still landed in front or interfered with Clive.

Racing incident


L3 - Hugenholtzbocht (hairpin) - Alan Walker & Jason Crellin

Jason gets it a bit sideways on the approach to the hairpin and is slow on the approach. Alan behind him sees him struggling and reckons he can get to the corner before Jason and he dives up the inside. Alan ended up doing a late pass on the inside and slamming into the rear quarter of Jason's car, sending him flying.

  • Alan Walkerpenalty — Ambitious overtake - Rear ending Jason Crellin — 2 places lost


L16 - Hodenvlak/Tunnel Oost - Noel Kellett & Bryce Allen

Bryce is about to be lapped, in quick succession, by the leaders Paul & Noel. Bryce keeps left and lets Paul through but he also has to take the right hand corner himself and Bryce does this whilst trying to keep left to allow Noel to lap him too. There was a bit of confusion as to is he coming through? and will? he won't he? It ended with a side contact between Bryce and Noel. I can't attribute any fault to either driver here.

Racing incident


L18 - T1 - Mike Cooper & Jonathan Boughton

Maxim goes for an outside pass on Mike into T1 but his left wheels strayed onto the grass under braking and caused him to slide sideways into Mike.

Moderator's Report

The Final Result

Well at last the season has come to an end, i can tell you that from my point of view the end seemed a very long way off at the start but as with every season the beginning was hard, mean, aggressive with misunderstandings and impatience making each race a war zone for all sorts of reasons. But at the season progressed everyone got used to the idea that a race is not won in the first corner and to finish first, first you must finish, i know they're old adages but very true nevertheless. Also an appreciation emerged that there were other people in the race besides just themselves and a good grounding in the knowledge of just how precarious it is to underestimate the effect of warp combined with GPLs collision detection system that takes over during close online racing.

Eventually this led to an understanding, an easing of the tension and a more cooperative nature emerging between everyone that paid dividends. The bad rejoins became a thing of the past and the $%@k you, this is my it's my bit of track attitude transformed into, "well cripes we're not all going to get through there at the same time" and some orderly queues formed with pleasantries being heard like "no no, i insist, after you old chap - why thanks old bean i'll take you up on that most generous offer" and slowly but surely the terrible decimation of the early laps in the early races became a distant memory of some other warring tribe that; surely couldn't have been us could it! As the season wore on it blossomed into some damn fine well thought out and well fought racing. Well done everyone you made it look as though someone was trying to make you understand that it doesn't have to be a bloodbath to have competitive racing and fun at the same time. It's just a shame that all this wealth of knowledge can't be handed straight over to the new arrivals for season 9, but as with all things in life the best lessons are learnt the hard way.

And onto the honours for this hard fought season, someone has to emerge as the winner and a deserved winner too. But it was no walkover, it all came down to the last race and it could have gone either way for Noel and Dean and earlier on in the seaon they had their work cut out trying to keep newcommer Paul from stealing their thunder and he pushed them hard in case they should trip and it made for a close seasons racing.

So congratulations go to Noel Kellett for winning the div 4 season 8 drivers championship - congratulations to Dean Holloway for taking 2nd place in the Div 4 season 8 drivers championship and Congratulations to Paul Skingley for taking 3rd place in the Div 4 season 8 drivers championship. A big well done to all the drivers in Div 4 for making the racing what it is today and for competing in the UK's premier GPL league that is UKGPL.


L4 - T2 - Dean Holloway/Alan Walker/Paul Skingley Paul P2 enters the corner first and runs wide onto the grass. Alan P3, close behind, sees Paul going wide and backs out of the throttle causing his car to turn in tighter causing him to ride the inside kerb and this throws the back end of his car round scrubbing off a lot of speed.

Dean P4 sees Paul wide, on the grass, off to the left and Alan in the centre of the track but pointing to the right and at a reduced speed, whilst Alan is trying to correct his tail slide. Dean has a normal line through the corner and gets a good drive out of the apex and has good speed advantage over Paul and Alan, he sees a gap developing and he goes for the pass on the left between them. But as he makes his move Alan recovers from his tail slide and resumes on the racing line but Dean is now accelerating towards the rear of Alan's car. Dean tries to avoid the rear of Alan's car but it's too late and catches his rear left spinning Alan off then Dean bounces of Alan's car and into the side of Paul's car. Dean and Paul end up upside down on the grass whilst Alan turns his round and continues, Paul retires at this point.

This wasn't any last minute passing attempt or aggressive move on Dean's part but Dean had a choice to make - he had time to back out of the throttle on seeing Alan's car losing control in front of him or to have carried on with the passing attempt but to have taken a wider line to avoid the possibility of contacting Alan's car and for this reason i feel it's penalty - reduced by 1 because Dean takes a voluntary SnG at the end of the lap.

  • Dean Hollowaypenalty — Rear ending Alan Walker — 1 place lost


L4 - Mike Turner

Mike takes 2 Shift R's on L4 but only 1 SnG.

  • Michael Turner — Failing to Stop and Go after Shift-R — 15.000 seconds added


L9 - T1 - Alan Walker & Simon Loynes

Alan is close behind Simon as they enter T1. Simon in front loses control of the back end and scrubs off speed. Alan close behind backs out of the throttle and slides left to avoid Simon and without trying passes Simon round the outside. As Alan passes the front of Simon's car a warp contact spins Alan's car, Simon manages to continue.

Warp incident


L10 - Essess - Alan Walker & Clive Loynes

Alan spins on entry to the left hander, first part of the Esses and ends up facing the wrong way on the outside of the exit of the corner. As Alan's car comes to rest, he doesn't wait and pull across the track to attempt to turn the car. But just as Alan pulls across the track Clive rounds the corner and losses control of his car in an attempt to avoid hitting Alan, Clive manages to regain control and continue. As it turns out there was no collision but only due to Clive's quick responses did he avoid hitting Alan. Alan was in a difficult position on the circuit but if he'd waited for a just a second or two and listened he could have been sure it was clear rather then trusting it to luck. Reduced because it was clear before Alan moved and that there was no contact.

  • Alan Walkerpenalty — Bad Rejoin — 0 places lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


L20 - Essess - Mike Turner

Mike enters the Essess too fast and slides to the outside of the corner and into a stationary Maxim that's about to rejoin the track. There were waved Yellows before the corner but extremely difficult for Mike to see it until it was too late.

Racing incident.


L21 - Approach to the Essess - Alan Walker & Jonathan Boughton

Alan is chasing Maxim towards the Essess and looks to be attempting a braking pass on the inside. As they approach the braking point, Alan is behind lining up for the pass under braking on Maxim but Alan gets it all wrong and doesn't leave enough room and just runs into the rear left of Maxim's car. Not enough care taken to leave enough room under braking for the pass. Alan doesn't take a voluntary SnG. Maxim gets a free SR.

  • Alan Walkerpenalty — Rear ending Jonathan Boughton — 2 places lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


L22 - Mike Turner

Mike Shift R's but no SnG.

  • Michael Turner — Failing to Stop and Go after Shift-R — 15.000 seconds added
