Great Nik
Ideally I would like a little tear with you do we can put you in the correct tyre group, are you about today at all ?
Nik is definitely in the top group.
Qualy & Start Race on RH tyres or less
PITS CLOSED FOR 45 MINUTES
Have you thought this through? I'm not sure you can make 45 min on one tank of fuel. especially not on Daytona!

We got over 50 minutes on rh on Friday with a pace lap, fuel tyres on normal .
Ok, but its gonna hurt badly... group 2 will probably demolish the competition, being able to start on RM, then have a full 60 minutes on RS, and just do 2 stops (group 1 will also have to do 2 stops).
Group 1 willl be on worn RH tyres and group 2 will be on fresh RS, for a full 20 minutes, thats roughly 10 laps, and laptime difference will be about 5-6 seconds. (3 seconds compound difference, and after 30 min on them, they will have worn down by another 2-3 seconds)
So if we asume that group 1 will have the same pace on RH as group 2 have on RM, wich usually tends to be the case, then we will have a 1 minute gap after the first half of the race, if group 1 then are 1 sec faster per lap, wich is the difference between RH and RM, and will have a bit better tyres and fuel, lets say we will be 1.5 seconds faster per lap, that will be just 33 seconds advantage, and group 2 will win with roughly 30 seconds.

I'm not saying change it now, I think its worth a try, but if it works out to be too much, can we leave it open to a change?

I would say that off course it should be up too debate after testing , but i think that it maybe could be a good idea with the 45 min , but not without beeing able too pit for fresh RH iff you want that , i think its a bit harsh saying no pit untill after a period off time , it should rather say no changing tire compound within that time range .....

Everything is always changeable in our series, never do we want a lopsided series where only the few can win, and as you know we have changed things mid season before if things were not going well.

Part of the reason needs to be to keep the whole field in through a season they must have a fair change of winning a race.
Its a handicapped series and this must mean even the slowest guys get a chance to win if they get it all right on the day.

Not great for elite guys i know, but even as it stands now with the tyre allocations i still think normal service will resume, and the less skilled may need even more help.

We have had many test races as always to try different things, it always has to be easy to regulate and check and this is a good step in a good direction, however even as the settings are for Monday, my feeling is that the elite guys will make it in the top spots.

The problem with that is it is not enforceable.
Replays dont show any tyre changes and although i am sure we have very honest guys in the series who would not change tyre type, it may be we get some that are not so honest join in future.

In a 50 minute test race the other day, Filo on RH was lapping at 1 44s on RH and we on RM were at around 1.46s 1.45s and the RS guys on about the same, and after 50 minutes he was around a minute ahead, he finished the 50 minute race without a pitstop.

If everything were ideal no one would crash, but unfortunately it is generally the slower guys that crash, and that has to be taken into account.

Lets leave it as it is, its a test race and we can see what happens.

Ultimately i would like to see the slower guys on RS be near the front at the end, its not great for elite guys i agree, but its a handicap series and it generally seems that as the non elite guys never get to win or even feel they have a chance they often drop out of the series after a few races.

My aim is always to make it that they have a good chance of winning, this will keep them in the series and and keep the grids full for the series.

TONIGHTS RACE DETAILS

After Qualifying when the race starts everyone quits.

I will then reset the room.

Drivers then can only enter into Pitbox.

When all drivers are in the Pitbox you will be called out in qualy order to park around the lap in line behind each other.

Once all drivers are in position i will start the race.

Lap one is a pace lap at around 80 mph/110 kph
NO OVERTAKING

The polesitter can Go full race speed exiting the final bend - exit of bus stop chicane.

Race will then be live.

No passing before start finish line.


If there is serious lag after 75% of the pace lap - drivers can message SC

The polesitter will respond OK and a we will run a second pace lap - go at exit of bus stop again.


SKINNY PITLANE EXIT MUST ALWAYS BE USED

also good to check out section "car maintenance" of main GT6 home screen, for make sure about car body rigidity (if got mileage, cost 217.500cr) and/or engine (oil, 250cr) condition for best possible endurance performance

No you cant mate, i have been though all kinds of different ways to see how you can, but you cant, some drivers amy show the correct tyre but others dont, its not reliable, and not fair if its not teh same for all.

The way it is is fine, its a test race, so we can make adjustments to test race 2 if needed.

What time will you get on ? q is at 1900 uk and race at 19145 uk

Also we whatspp you at lunchtime and you dont answer.

i was almost blamed for having my car performance a lil bit lower thn max allowed, i got mentioned as an potentially dangerous
Which leads me to believe you didn't read the regulations. Although I can't say for sure because obviously I'm not you. But, logic did specify what performance and tyres everyone has to run.
