    On the Nissan GT-R GT3, what is the 0.8 Boost mean?

    This is definitely a FAQ, so clearly I am not explaining it well enough.



    Screen Shot 2014-09-02 at 21.42.14.png

    The Pressure Gauge above is indicating 0.25 Boost.

    If a car's Boost Limit as defined in the Technical Regulations was 0.25, then if the car was exceeding the current level of pressure at steady throttle input, then it would not be compelling with the Technical Regulations.

    Technically it's 0.20 due to it being in fifths but the idea is there.

    AMENDMENTS TO THE SPORTING REGULATIONS

    A few changes have been made to the Spot Regs regarding Qually and the of setting the Grid in an effort to clarify and simplify;


    4.1 - QUALIFYING PRACTICE

    4.1.d - All Drivers must complete at least 5 laps.

    4.1.e - All Drivers must complete at least 5 laps during hours of darkness, if they wish to take part in the Race during hours of darkness. The Event’s Supplementary Regulations will define when the Race’s hours of darkness are, if applicable.

    Notes - the 5 lap minimum if in order to assess Driver Discipline and Driving Standards as well as allowing for 3 flying laps to meet the 110% requirement. Night Laps are no longer mandatory. This will not apply at Brands but will do so at Spa.


    4.2 - STARTING GRID

    4.2.c - The average of the 2 Best Lap Times set by 2 different Drivers over the 4 Qualifying Practice Sessions will serve as the reference time for establishing a Team’s Starting Grid Position.

    4.2.d - If a Team has been unable to field more than 1 Driver over the course of the 4 Qualifying Practice Sessions then they will be ordered on the Starting Grid behind those Teams who did field more than 1 Driver over the course of the 4 Qualifying Practice Sessions.

    4.2.e - If a Team was unable to field any Drivers over the course of the 4 Qualifying Practice Sessions then they will start from the back of the Grid, at the discretion of the Event Officials.

    4.2.f - If more than one Team were unable to field any Drivers over the course of the 4 Qualifying Practice Sessions then they will be ordered on the Grid at the discretion of the Event Officials.

    Notes - the element of second fastest laps has been removed, now only fastest laps are relevant.


    5.1 - WARM UP

    5.1.b - The Warm Up Session will last for 45 minutes.

    Notes - the session has been reduced in duration by 5 minutes.

    My team wants to win. It is going to take a month to get the GT-R to be on pace for 24 Hours. I rather start sooner than later.

    Suggestion:

    How about linking each of the little Event pics to their respective threads to make it easy for people to jump from one to another? Not gonna be so useful now maybe, with only two events this year, but it's something to think about for the future, considering it's likely (and hopeful) that these events continue...

    How many teams have signed up to this one so far AJ?

    If you want Team ORR to field two cars (one in each class), just let me know and I can start the hunt for new drivers now. There's plenty of time this time round so it ought to prove a little easier to get some decent drivers on board.

    Question? It stats in the sporting regulations 4.1.e, that each driver must complete 5 laps in darkness, in order to be able to compete in the race during hours of darkness. When will it be possible to complete these?

    Not sure where AJ is, so I will answer, I believe (If I'm wrong Aj will have to correct me) there will be 1 or more Quali sessions in the night for drivers to complete their night laps :tup:

    Tech Regs for GT3 are back up (no changes, just got lost in the OP update).
