Supercar Season 2, Vasmac Motorsport #1 will be reserved for champion from season 1. If for some reason season 1 champion does not enter into season 2 the next highest placed driver from season 1 championship will be allocated car #1.

Lobby Setup

Private lobby will be setup 6:45pm AEDT with invites being sent ready for a 7:00pm AEDT start.
If 2 lobbies are required, lobbies will be split into even numbers based on previous race results.
Bottom 3 from top lobby previous round results will drop into lobby 2 and top 3 from bottom lobby will be promoted into the top lobby after round 1.
If 2 lobbies are required for round 1, a 15 minute practice session will be used first to allocate lobby positions. New lobbies will then be created with members being invited into their correct lobby.
A point overlap system will be used for every race if 2 lobbies are required with the first 2 place getters in the bottom lobby getting the same points as the bottom 2 from the top lobby. Points will then continue from 3rd down in the bottom lobby.
No live streaming i.e. Twitch etc during the races as this has proven to make connections unstable.
All races of each round will have a 5 minute race warm up for last minute changes, quick break etc.
All drivers in the lobby are required to select vote to start session after checking correct car is selected from their garage before starting each race.
After the host has checked and set up next race in the Supersprint and Sprint rounds only 1 minute will be allocated before he will start the qualifying session, so members are requested not to go away for extended time during this period unless they communicate this to the host and host is happy to wait.
When 2 lobbies are required, all DNF’s will be given place from last finish place from the bottom lobby. Hosts to “record that” when someone drops out to get lap when they dropped out so both lobby drop outs can be calculated what lap they dropped out on, with the driver dropping out with most laps completed in the race by the host will be awarded next place points as a DNF after last place race finisher from the bottom lobby results.
There will be 5 dropped races, see points section for more info.
Each round will run for approximately 2 hours.

Supersprint - Real time
Sprint - x2
Endurance - x5


Forced interior view - No
Forced manual gears - No

Hear is a link to the 1st race highlights. I will be getting the other 2 races from round 1 done by end of the week.

Nice, just a couple of quick questions, who is in which car (gamertag) and is their any Web page with race results and/or Championship Standings.

Correction:Mistake me if I am wrong but I think that #24 is Arky888,#28 is LoonyTosol and #23 might be WoodyLizard.

We had some drivers selecting wrong cars due to 1st round and a bit too eager to get racing we forgot to check our cars! Then we had lobby issues which had cars stranded and not on the grid etc.

For your info Arky888 is 24, LoonyTosol is 28 and I was in car 1 for race 1 but my number is 22 which was correct in race 2 and 3.

Hey man, what is the points system as I don't have Facebook but it would be fun to keep track of.

13-11-2016, 18:40
It's a bit complicated, but it's based on the actual V8 ssupercars point system run in 2014 in Australia I think I grabbed. Points are different for the Supersprint, Sprint and Enduro rounds. You could google it!

13-11-2016, 19:04
I thought it was so.
