Then you just change region like me , the race time is the same I think ?
I'm considering it, but 9pm EST will be 2am over here (EST isn't the same as UTC). If that's race start I could possibly consider it, but if that's room opening then no chance.

Will just have to see how many are there for Euro round 1, but I don't fancy a championship just racing myself :P

the room opens up for me 3 o`clock in the middle of the night , I have considered changing back again again , not often the podium is a sure thing :rolleyes:

Entries have been updated.

@_ApexPredator I have moved ya to the other championship at the momen, I have discussed with @aceboy127 about scrapping the Euro Championship due to lack of entries, obviously the promise of a full lobby kart series for europe obviously has come to fruition as i was lead to beleive, maybe it can be revisited in the future.

On the lobby time, plan is to open the lobby at 8:30pm est, qualy is slated to start at 9:00pm and will try to stick to the schedule as best as possible barring any connectivity issues with competitors. We had problems in the P3 room last night and stuff like that can almost not be helped.

Alright guys, first race for Season 2 of the IRS Bridgestone Karting Series starts this Friday, here is the tentative schedule. (Times are in US Eastern Standard time)

8:15pm - 8:45pm – Room Opens, Free Practice (Track Time set to 8:00 Clear)
9:00pm - 9:10pm - Qualifying - 10 minutes (Track time set to 8:20 Clear)
9:15pm – Heat Race 1 - 7 Laps - (Grid Set by Qualifying Results, Track Time set to 10:00 Cloudy)

Lobby will be opened between 8:15pm and 8:45pm and hosted by @damonc84 (PSN: damon84c) , if room is opened earlier or later I will notify everyone via a post in this thread. I will also have the a Party chat open via psn (mainly for room access if needed) I will also have a Discord channel open as well for all race communications. Upon entry into the room please enter track as soon as possible so a visibility check can be done to ensure that there is no connectivity issues between racers. Once connectivity checks are completed we will start the event. I do expect everyone's livery to be in order for this event, in good faith I do not plan to do a livery check before the event but will inspect liverys via replays afterward, if you livery is not compliant I will PM you, I do not plan to hand down peneltys for this but do hope that if your livery is found to not be compliant that you have it corrected by the next race meeting. Otherwise I look forward to everybody coming to race at Willow Springs on Friday night. See ya on the grid!

Hi everyone,

As some of you realised, I've not been online for long time. I've been very busy and travelling to 5 different countries for business.
Unfortunately I will not be able to make it for season 2. But will try, if it is ok, to participate in some races if there are some free spots.

But I'll follow season 2 here and YouTube (If someone streams) as much as I can.
And hopefully will be able to make it for the big finale.

Wish everyone of you good luck 👍

@_ApexPredator good chance you get win, hope you've sharpen your weapons. At least you will have lots of fun with the IRS team along with Searays and all the other guys. Expect lots of giggles over chat ;)

@Searays2 Without putting too much pressure on you, everything else than better ranking from season 1 will disappoint me :D good luck mate ;)

Thanks coach!
It's been a bit lonely on track the last few weeks, gotta pay the bills though :)

I actually can't get online atm, so hopefully that'll clear up in a couple of hours and I can get some sharpening in ;)

Good to hear from you mate

Yes, I've heard that PSN has been having issues today. Ill be home in a few hours and will give it a try. I was working fine around 7am central time, but then again that may have been the time all the Fortnite normies may have sleeping allowing psn to breath. Lol

Hey @damonc84, sorry I couldn't reply, I have issues with the conversation system. And I was unable to message you on PSN either, ugh.
Em, you mentioned something about some decal work. Championship decals maybe?
I could help with that, championship decals without the need to scale, so all cars can have the same decals with same size/aspect ratio.

Is there a 107% rule?
I think my times aren't competitive enough to participate.

_ApexPredator Dominates the Streets!!!

20180715150501.jpg

@_ApexPredator dominates Round 1 of the second season for the International Racing Series's Bridgestone Karting Series. _Apex Predator started the evening claiming pole position in Qualifying with a time of 1:11.547 around the 1.6 mile Street of Willow Springs course ahead of the DRT Racing duo of @SRT DK Racing and @damonc84 .

Heat race 1 seen action quickly with @Searays2 taking a trip in the gravel on lap 2 from the 3rd spot, That promoted Top Performance Motorsports driver @aceboy127 to the 3rd spot where he finished after 7 laps behind SRT DK Racing and _ApexPredator won ran away to a flag to flag win. Heat Race 2 seen an inverted starting grid moving aceboy127 to the top spot for the start. That advantage did not last long due to contact with damonc84 caused both to go off course with @Alan_2134 , who made his first start of the evening. That promoted SRT DK Racing to lead till the last lap when _ApexPredator made a pass for the lead in turn 1 and held it to the checkerd flag. SRT DK Racing would hold on for 2nd with Searays2 taking the 3rd spot.

20180715150355.jpg

The Final race of the night would see _ApexPredator on Pole based on his performances in the heats. The start seen him take off to a early lead while the field jockeyed for position behind. Aceboy127 would grabbed 2nd by the end of lap 1 over damonc84 and SRT DK Racing. 4 laps later damonc84 would take over the the position till lap 10 handing it over to SRT DK Racing. _ApexPredator ahead of all this, cruised to the victory for the Final starting of the season with a 9 point gap going into his home race at Brands Hatch Indy for Round 2 next Friday night.

Updates

Round 1 Results and Championship Standing have now been posted.

Regarding Livery rules. Pretty much all of the Karts from Round 1 were out of compliance to the livery rules in the OP. I have added a "Decal Placement" spoiler to the OP so everyone can have there karts in compliance for the next round at Brands Hatch. @aceboy127 @CAB114 @Antares26 @kpstormie @Alan_2134 @_ApexPredator and @Searays2 please double check the OP to make sure that your karts are in compliance.

I've already got the IRS logo on the front fairing so I'm good there, but what about my Bridgestone? I'll slap a couple smaller decals on the front fairing if my large sidepod placement isn't in compliance. Just thought mine would be fine lol.
