    Sorry my dear teammate @Phlano099, so with COVID rates spiking and states near total lockdown my family decided I should move sooner (like now) rather than later so I'm going to have to skip this race. If I don't talk to you guys have a happy holidays! I'll be back in January.

    The mood struck to do another livery, so since I never quite liked the black and yellow No. 65 ACI livery, I decided to render the new ACI No. 24 livery used this season in the real world Championship. Saw this livery, and have been wanting to do this one for a little while.
    Since @MrDonovan will be absent for this next event, the next Reserve to reply will be the first to use the new No. 24 ACI Motorsports livery. Profile page, team profile, and spotters guide have been updated.
    Platinum and Gold Class versions can be retrieved at livery search tag: snailgt3cup

    Wow Raul, don’t push yourself to early. Get well!
    I’m responding as attending. (If I reply weeks in advance, I’m always forgetting which Friday).

    I do hope you can make it, so
    I have you down as tentative, but as Rob said, don't push yourself too early. Keep me posted on your status as we get closer, and get better

    I figured as much. Will likely see you if I get home and online early enough from work to catch you for some practice laps.

    S2 Event 6 Porsche GT3 Cup Spotter png file.png
    Pre-Race Drivers Briefing
    Event #6
    at Autodromo Nazionale Monza
    December 18th, 2020

    Monza... Braking, alot of throttle, and a few corners to make it interesting. This contest is going to come down to who can outbrake better, get on the throttle earlier, and make use of the near endless opportunities to pass. However, drivers are asked to use caution and patience in the braking zones leading up to both chicanes at T1&2, and T4&5 being mindful that drivers are on different tire compounds and weights. Let's avoid any contact or collisions in these high risk areas especially in the opening laps and have a clean competitive race event.
    Lap times being reported look to be pretty close across both classes so the racing and pace should be very tight across the field.
    As for track limits, drivers are asked to make every attempt to keep at least 2 tires within the white track limit line or red and white curbing. Notable areas:
    Exits of the Turns 8,9,&10 S curves and the final corner: the exit of turn 4 opens up to an asphalt relief area with the limit determined by a white line. Please make all attempts to remain in bounds. Governance of this will be determined by your driving peers and will only be reviewed/penalized if reported and determined to have created an advantage.
    Turns 1&2 chicane, Turns 4&5 chicane, and Turns 8,9,&10 S curves: drivers may attack these sections very aggressively in an attempt to straighten these sequences. Again, be mindful that 2 tires must remain on the red and white curbing to be considered in bounds. Governance of this will be determined by your driving peers and will only be reviewed/penalized if reported and determined to have created an advantage.
    Screenshot_20201217-185822_Samsung Internet.jpg
    **Fuel could become a factor for this event, so prepare your strategy as necessary.**


    As a reminder to all drivers, please verify your weight, and apply any issued and required success ballast based on the chart HERE

    Also, drivers are reminded that this series now implements a success ballast and class graduating structure. Be sure to secure as many points as you can, even if its towards the back side of the grid....They add up over the 2 races in the event night.
    See Tab 2.3 in the first post if you haven't already for Success Ballast details.

    Race Room opens for entry and warmup at 9pm est. Please verify you are on the correct tires and in the correct livery. All entries must be in before qualifying which is set to start at 9:15pm est.
    (Primary Party Chat will be opened just before the room creation)

    **Please be reminded that the grid will be set manually after qualifying to allow drivers to return to the lobby to perform the "NO ABS Bug" work around. See below:
    1.) After qualifying, exit track to lobby, but do not cancel your entry (green check mark must stay selected)
    2.) Go to your "Options" icon, change/verify your desired settings
    3.) Go to "Members List" at top of the screen to verify everything is right.
    4.) Wait for race to start.
    This sequence must be done before race 2 as well, so repeat the steps above between races. (No need to cancel entry)**
    Event #6 Grid and Roster Status
    Ok turnout for this event despite our 2 absences and 2 primary drivers tentative at this point. 12 of our Primary Drivers have confirmed attending with 1 reserve set to fill in, and the final spot to potentially be filled by 1 of our remaining reserves marked tentative.

    2.) @MrDonovan of ACI Motorsports has reported absent for the event and will be covered by our 2nd confirmed available reserve who is currently tentative, @aedenmaddok in the No. 24 ACI Motorsports Porsche.
