    I think that you were trying to prevent us pitting and then we'd all get penalties. ;)

    Just a quick note on the Independents' Championship:

    As you know, drivers who don't qualify will score Independent points as well as JST points. These points will be doubled as if they'd taken part in both races. This is best explained using an example...

    Say I failed to qualify this week, but I came 7th in the pre-Q race. Three Independents qualified, so that would mean I came 4th in the Independents this week. I'd therefore score 14 points (if pre-Qualifying is seen as an extension of Race 1). This score will then be doubled as if I'd taken part in Race 2 as well, so I'd get 28 points.

    Doubling the points doesn't give any sort of advantage, because qualifying and finishing 3rd both times would award 32 points etc. It just keeps the Independents title rolling and more interesting (plus allowing the freedom for an Independent to fail to qualify).

    Drivers on Probation:
    @Dimse91 - Clean it up in Pre-Qualifying next week or find yourself removed from the series. Too much contact and making overtaking moves that were just never on. Your driving during the Pre-Qualifying race was pretty bad (Laps 3 and 4 in particular).

    @mrbrendon999 - you're not in trouble for bad driving, but your connection during Race 1 was terrible at points, and the lag was causing some serious issues. I don't want to have to do this but if you keep lagging that badly then I'm gonna have to ask you to stop racing with us. Try clearing your cache, see if that helps :tup:

    --

    Please PM me if you want your penalties explained to you. You have 24 hours from the time of this post to appeal your penalty/penalties should you wish to.

    Points up shortly :tup:

    --

    General Note about Driving Standards:

    I was disappointed with the amount of penalties that had to be dished out during Race 2 in particular. It was far, far too dirty from everyone. I encourage everyone at this point to calm their driving down - be more measured in overtaking and braking, stop cutting corners to gain advantage and passing people as a result, give each other sufficient room on the track. Lift off and back out if you have to - there's always the next corner.

    Silverstone National is another track with lots of tarmac run-off, and we have a similarly dim view of overusing it there too. Other than that, nice to see a bumper entry and that the cars appeared to be very well-balanced :tup:

    Oh my god. That was worse than I expected, I've never seen so many warnings and penalties before. :( I'm shocked.

    I'll certainly try and keep things cleaner next week, hopefully this was a one-off.

    The race is JUST FOR TOP 6? I thought that scoring points were 25-18-15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1...

    Yeah, only 6 drivers qualify through to the main races from Pre-Qualifying.

    The top 10 drivers in the Drivers' Championship standings are locked in for each week's racing (or less if a steward is outside the 10)... you could say the top 6 drivers who aren't stewards are locked in.

    That makes the full 16-car grid.

    If you don't qualify, you still score points for the Independents Championship, plus you have the Jack Sears Trophy if you don't qualify too. :tup:

    Yeah, giving it a trial out here as well, credit where credit's due ;)

    Yeah I'm not gonna argue. It's not up to me to read the rules for people. If points are scored down to 15th place and you classify 17th, you're gonna score 0.

    But in 1st race, we were 10. I finished 7th. Then I got 10 positions penalty, right?

    Yeah, and that race doesn't count for championship points (in the Drivers, Teams or Manufacturers anyway). It's pre-qualifying (i.e. earning the right to race in the main event).

    10 drivers locked in before the race.
    6 drivers qualify because of that race (Top 6 finishers).
    = 16 drivers for the Main Races that do score points.

    You came 7th in that race, and therefore 17th overall because 16 drivers were ahead of you on the night.

    Nobody brought it up to be looked at so we didn't. S**t happens, I suppose. Just one of those things.

    Congrats, the Nissan showed up very well :tup:

    Ah OK, makes sense :tup:

    That would explain it then. Anyway that you can sabotage the internet so that he can't use it while you're racing?

    Are you on a wired connection, because that will also help? Just get a really long ethernet cable from somewhere like Maplin and set it up for the evening. The PS3 wireless seems to be poor.

    So what times are we looking at around Silverstone?

    I was 1:02.5xx on Thursday after a few laps, that was without making any car adjustments. Gearing and suspension should see me into the high 1:01's and then it's a matter of learning the track and coping with the Volvo's understeer.

    I'll be online soon if anyone would like to join in.
