8:35 pm Qualify 15 mins
9.12 pm 3 min wait time
8:55 pm Race for 120 mins : CPS X 3 with a driverswap MAX driver stint 35 mins


So we start the race a 8.55 pm and then at 9.12 pm we all have a mandatory wait of 3 min. Is this on track or do we come back to the pits? ;)

Just asking for a friend

RACE CONTROL ANNOUNCEMENT

Due to being found responsible for a multi-car incident in Race 2 at Zandvoort @ time index 26.27 which resulted in damage to 3 other cars, Bentley No 3 driven by J Courtier & T Craghill will not be allowed to participate in qualifying and must start from the Pit Lane for the Silverstone round.

All drivers are reminded of ASRNZ's redress policy. In addition excessive blocking such as moving under brakes or trying to force another car off the track or into a wall is not acceptable. Racing room must be given.

I think you could also add in there dive bombing as well.

With the up coming GT3 series may be this is an opportunity for Race Control to re look at the rules and define what they see as a block verse defending a racing line . Understanding how they see the rules will help all drivers and also create a consistency in handling of incidents. :)

I'm not Race control, but i see it as a pretty simple rule.
I learnt the hard way in my early days of Karting when i got black flagged for changing my line twice on a straight to defend another kart.
The rule is that you can only change your line once on any given straight.
If you choose to change your line to the inside of the track you must then stay in the inside half of the track all the way into the apex of the corner, you are not allowed to come back to the outside half of the track before the corner.
Thus rules out weaving etc

Copy of our Rule section
3.Blocking When battling for position:
Passing opportunities will almost always evolve. When someone is trying to overtake you on a straight, you are allowed to change lines once and only once.
Passing According to the circumstances, may be carried out on either the right or the left. A Driver may not deliberately leave the track without justifiable reason. As mentioned above, More than one change of direction to defend a position is not permitted. Any Driver moving back towards the racing line, having earlier defended his position off-line, should leave at least one Car width between his own Car and the edge of the track on the approach to the corner. However, maneuvers liable to hinder other Drivers, such as deliberate crowding of a Car beyond the edge of the track or any other abnormal change of direction, are strictly prohibited(i.e weaving to break the tow}. Any Driver who appears guilty of any of the above offenses may be subject to penalty.
YOU MUST LEAVE RACING ROOM!
[Don't hold up, Or block unnecessarily during ALL race sessions.]
[*Incident specific penalties apply]

Thanks guys there maybe more writen about this particular situation but we have had problems before with the change of direction while on a straight while there is already an overlap. While this may of been only one change of direction it is effectively forcing somone off the track or into a wall etc. Still comes back to our awareness of our surroundings and leaving racing room when needed. It takes 2 to make a pass happen.

So at what point does defending your line become forcing someone off the track? If racing room has been left then it's ok? Anyone who defends a line will effectively be forcing the drive over. Is this not ok?
How far would a driver be allowed to move across the track in a single move?

if you change your line and there is already a overlap, making contact, that not defending your line. that is another word i can not say while in public places or i have a open mic without consequence.

we are not racing for sheep stations, or auckland property, only bragging rights. good battles are better kept clean,

Total agree with you Troy... hopefully this will help drivers who may see it the other way round.
