Hey guys. It's been a while Wink

Spoke to Rooster about this last night, but just realized I don't have the car. If anyone could send one over, that would be great.

Thanks in advance and hope to see you all later Smile

Live Qualifying - With all drivers present in the race lobby the host will set the room up for live qualifying. A short race will serve as the live qualifying session. The host will call all cars to the pits and start the countdown timer. Please remain in the pits during the countdown. On the first lap drivers will spread out as to be able to run unobstructed and to prevent drafting. All laps between are eligible for flying qualifying laps. Drivers must respect all track and contact rules. A lap with contact or departure from the track is not eligible. On the final lap drivers will not finish the race, rather they will slow down or stop and post their fastest (legal, clean) lap time in the PSN text chat (please don't use the GT lobby chat as it has a short history), after which they can quit out of the race. The host will sort and post the qualifying order in to the text chat, save the replay and set the lap count for the full race distance, while the racers take to the track in Free Run and line up in grid order (Fastest to Slowest) near turn 1. Once everyone is in order the host will start the race.

Updated Live Q procedures

Hoping to still make this, but I'm currently in A&E waiting to have some stitches after a clash of heads during a soccer match today. I've registered, but I'll keep you up to date here.

I thought soccer was the one where you don't crash into people. scratch

Registered, heading out for practice.

Just a few notes regarding this event:

The Q session will be 4 laps. 1 for spacing, 2 flying laps and on the 4th we post our times and quit out.

Weather will be preset to the listed settings. From then on they will be left alone. The weather changes that occur during qualifying will carry over to the start of the race, so if it's raining it will get wetter and if it's not it will be drying. You'll be allowed to change tires between q and the race


Race tires are good up 25%, 30% if they have heat
Inters are good from 30% to 70%
Rain Tires are good above 70%

Rain and Inters wear pretty quickly, especially below their operating range.

and a mighty fine job of it too. Thumbs Up!

i made one mistake. dropped the left rear tire into the grass, and around she went. but happy with the podium. maybe i should run SH's in q'ing more often. crazy

enjoyed the weather track. even though it didnt play into it too much, it made it different, and I like different.

see you next time

After the lag spike got me, I watched the remainder. Pretty close up front for a while.

Blew T1, L1 horrendously, and punted robiker badly - probably into someone else, from what I could tell.

No excuse for it; sincere apologies
