    Tires racing hard.

    On each track 2 around 30 minute races. First races order is determined by a 10 minute time trial. Second race with reverse from previous race result.

    If someone suffers a disconnect and gets back before 5 laps has passed, we will do a restart and the amount if laps driven -1 is reduced. Restart will be done with rolling start and first lap will be a formation lap where participants will take their positions that they had previously, except the one who disconnected whom will start last. Leader will start to accelerate when formation comes to last turn entering the start/finish line and no passing before start/finish line has been passed.

    Except for Le Sarthe where participant must get back before first lap ends.

    If a major crash happens during first laps first corners, a pace car can be called to get the cars back together. In this case leader will slow down/stop and no overtaking during this time. A rolling restart is done as previously. Driver responsible for the crash will take last place. Cars involved will take their place behind rest of the cars.

    Other racing incidents.
    If someone knocks other out of the track, then that person must wait and allow the victim to overtake him.
    In case someone gains positions by short cutting chicanes, etc. then he must those whom he has overtaken to pass him.

    After each race 1st gets 50, 2nd 30 and 3rd 10 kg ballast upto maximum 200kg. If a drivers finishes outside podium position then he can remove 10 kg.

    Points rewarded starting from first position to eight.

  2. Nürburgring GP/F

    First race
    Forgot to save first start, and don't have exact starting order :grumpy:

    First start wen't fine no crashes, but after 3 laps Stygge_Stig had disconnect. Luckily he managed get back on fourth lap and we did restart with 11 laps.

    After formation lap rolling start wen't smoothly and race was on again and order after first corners was.
    kriscavanagh, Ripper_1978, Nepalepa, Jyrijh, Stygge_Stig, R1xa

    I managed to get past Nepalepa coming to Ford and gained 3rd place. Then Stygge_Stig had small oversteer at Dunlop and R1xa got past him. After first lap there were there two car groups separated by couple of seconds. Then R1xa had spin at Dunlop and Stygge_Stig got past him. On third lap Nepalepa had some action at Schumacher and I got some breathing room, but I was also starting lose ground to the leaders, kriscavanagh and Ripper (+6 secs.). And then Stygge_Stig missed braking point coming to Veedol and R1xa managed to get past him.
    End of lap 4 braking to Veedol Ripper_1978 got past kriscavanagh and took lead. Then race continued with kriscavanagh and Ripper_1978 racing at lead and R1xa and Stygge_Stig fighting for 5th and 6th. Me and Nepalepa had uneventful race with several second gap to both directions.
    I managed sometimes to close the gap to leaders while they were fighting, but it was obvious that my Lexus was no match to Subaru and Arta.
    On end of lap 9 Ripper_1978 had serious oversteer coming to start / finish line and kriscavanagh got 2 second lead then which he kept to the end.

    Results
    1. kriscavanagh 25:44,994
    2. Ripper_1978 +01.410
    3. Jyrijh +13,129
    4. Nepalepa +28.330
    5. Stygge_Stig > 30 secs
    5. R1xa > 30 secs

    Fastest lap
    Ripper_1978 2:05.972


    Second race
    Starting order was reverse from previous race.
    After clearing the Mercedes Arena order was
    Nepalepa, Stygge_Stig, R1xa, Ripper_1978, Jyrijh and kriscavanagh. During the first lap there were few overtakings but byt end of the lap order was same. Then on second lap there was a lot of action and places were changed and exiting Dunlop order was Stygge_Stig, Jyrijh, kriscavanagh, Ripper_1978, R1xa and Nepalepa. During that fighting Stygge_Stig had pulled 1 second lead.
    On 3rd lap i was overtaken at Mercedes Arena by kriscavanagh and Ripper_1978 and soon after kriscavanagh got past Stygge_Stig. Then in Dunlop Ripper_1978 got also past Stygge_Stig and I wen't slightly out on the exit whic almost allowed Nepalepa to overtake me. On 4th lap I finally caught up Stygge_Stig and passed him in Scumacher, but I was over 5 seconds behind leaders kriscavanagh and Ripper_1978 already. Then coming to start/finish line Ripper_1978 had spin and he was dropped back to fourth position. So on lap 5 kriscavanagh was leading with almost a second gap, me second with 7 second gap to Stygge_Stig, Ripper_1978 and Nepalepa. And R1xa must have had some major incident because he was 18 seconds behind them. Then coming to Dunlop Ripper_1978 had pressured Stygge_Stig to make an error and he and Nepalepa got past. After that it was uneventful for few laps except for positions 5 and 6 as R1xa caught up with Stygge_Stig. Then by lap 8 Ripper_1978 had gained on me and was quikly closing in while I was 7 seconds behind kriscavanagh. And then he overtook me braking to Veedol. Nepalepa had dropped 18 seconds behind us and Stygge_Stig and R1xa were futrher back fighting for 5th and 6th. These position remained for the rest of the race and our winner was kriscavanagh.

    Results
    1. kriscavanagh 30:28,202
    2. Ripper_1978 +07.135
    3. Jyrijh +13.569
    4. Nepalepa > 30 secs
    5. Stygge_Stig > 30 secs
    5. R1xa > 30 secs

    Fastest lap
    kriscavanagh 2:07.571
