DIVISION 1 Incident report

17.8 All decisions made by the Stewards are final.

Qualifying
None

Orange Zone
None

Other Incidents
1890 - S Glatter has game lag, H Ahonen gets involved and spins. Ahonen lock brakes and is predictable, unfortuantly when he gets going again it is onto the path of A Puoti that goes off track to avoid contact, this is the only way Puoti could have gone.
Penalty - H Ahonen - AC; DT
Ahonen did good up until the point that he started moving while traffic was approaching


3676 - M Veit suffers a paddle issue and is spun on pit exit, this causes contact with K Jaeger
Live penalty - M Veit - AC; SnH 60 seconds

4638 - C Kiss overtakes P Schulze, however Kiss carries to much speed into the corner and slides slighty, Schulze on the other hand turns in normally leaving very little space for the other P2
Penalty - P Schulze - AC; DT

4784 - D Lind overtakes K Kouri after being stuck there for a few corners and make a very aggressive move chopping infront of the GTE
Live warning - D Lind - Aggressive driving
Infraction - D Lind - Aggressive driving
We have decided to upgrade this to infraction as this is not acceptable behaviour

4346 - A Taylor goes up the outside which then at next turn is inside, M Fuhrmann turns in and A Taylor makes contact with Fuhrmann and the P2 spins. Fuhrmann fails to lock brakes and runs into Taylor who then spins and fails to lock brakes.
Racing incident (initial contact)
Penalty - M Fuhrmann - FTLB/AC; DT
Warning - A Taylor - FTLB


8366 - F Fortin dives up the inside of S Sardina in a very aggressive move
Warning - F Fortin - Aggressive driving

Racing incident

10780 - J Karimaa spins exiting T9, and comes to a stop in the middle of the road as a train of cars pass by. As he attempts to get going, M Sedlacek makes contact at full speed. causing massive damage.
Penalty - M Sedlacek - IYF/AC; SnH 60 seconds
Warning - J Karimaa - FTLB
This is a perfect example why locking brakes is important, if the brakes would have been locked the driver of the GTE would have had a choice to merge back on track instead of being in the middle of the track - however Yellow flags were out and M Sedlacek did not even slow. Which is why penalty is applied to him.


13633 - Q Benoit is retaking 8th place under braking for T10. P Schulze runs the outside line, but A Taylor attemps to slip through, tracking out at corner exit and making contact with Schulze, causing suspension damage, who has to pit for repairs
Penalty - A Taylor - AC; SnH 60 seconds

14083 - A Taylor divebombs D Vella into T3, making contact and forcing Vella wide nearly into M Caruso, allowing K Cox to breifly pass Vella for position
Penalty - A Taylor - Aggressive driving; DT

15858 - H Alsabti checks up for a slower GTE, M Fuhrmann appears to misjudge the situation and rams into the back of Alsabti
Penalty - M Fuhrmann - AC; SnH 60 seconds
Warning - M Fuhrmann - FTLB
Warning - H Alsabti - FTLB


16909 - M Csincsik cuts over the pit entry line/curb/grass
Penalty - M Csincsik - Pitlane violation; DT

19100 - P Schulze goes up the inside of H Wollert in the fast chicane, contact is made. However wheels does not allign (5.5)

Penalty - C Michel - AC; DT

E Jajovski cuts the track and rejoins in front of drivers who did not take the checkered flag
Penalty - E Jajovski - 5.19.1; DT
We would like to advice everyone to follow these simple rules from now on, do a full lap or pull off track and hit esc, do NOT interfer with racing and do not start crashing, making donuts etc.
We will from this round forward start to look at how drivers behave after the race. Penalties can and will be applied incase 5.19.2 is breached

I'm happy to wait until whenever the mod update comes, but in the meantime does anyone know of a way to simply access the Norma in its various aero configurations but with VEC POWER! for offline testing?

Use the none VEC version of the Norma.

Monday and Tuesday are normally very busy for me - that’s why the mod is not updated yet. I really can’t commit to doing anything beside work and sleep there. Once these days are over I will update. So it’s not like you can familiarise yourself with the track and then start changing setup once it’s updated :)

At some point will we be able to change the aero setup on these cars? I accept the low-drag option is off limits, but I do miss being able to take dive planes off... :(
