    VLMS Incident report


    17.8 All decisions made by the Stewards are final. Drivers are allowed to notify the Stewards if a decision violates one of SRC´s rules.

    Orange Zone
    165.553
    - O. Fortin did not follow the rule to use the pit limiter in the formation lap
    Penalty - O. Fortin - Drive through

    192.503 - F. Benedetti and A. vd Woude did not follow the rule to use the pit limiter in the formation lap
    Penalty - F. Benedetti - Drive through
    Penalty - A. vd Woude - Drive through


    205 - C. Barbossa did not release pitlimiter when others did. Which ended in several cars being caught out by this
    Penalty - C. Barbossa - 30sec Stop & Hold

    205 - R. Alitta did not release pitlimiter when others did. Which ended in several cars being caught out by this
    Penalty - R. Alitta - 60sec Stop & Hold

    209 - C. Reina spun on the formation lap, he then disengaged his pit limiter and started the race before exiting T11
    Penalty - C. Reina - 30sec Stop & Hold

    Other Incidents
    716
    - Reported contact between S. Jacobs and A. Ricci, this contact was made cause Ricci has a lag
    No further action

    755 - Pyatt hits Ricci, this ends with small damage on Ricci's car, also here Ricci is lagging a bit, why we can't give the whole fault to Pyatt
    Infraction - J. Pyatt

    995.3 - M. Mazzetti doesn't leave enough room for B. v.Beusekom, that ended in an contact between both cars, v.Beusekom has slightly suspension dmg and lost 2 positions. Also it has to be said, that both drivers could have avoid this.
    Warning – M. Mazzetti

    1059.5 - M. Mazzetti hasn't any chance to claim the position here and divebombed into B. v.Beusekom which was clearly avoidable. This results in body damage for v.Beusekom
    Penalty – M. Mazzetti - Avoidable contact - 60sec Stop & hold

    4421 - G. Angelidis demonstrate an unpredictable behaviour here, he should stay on his normal racing line and didn't move into the middle when 9 cars are incoming, also he shouldn't brake that early, lift the brake and brake a few meters later again harder, this could have been ended much more worse.
    Warning - G. Angelidis

    7181 - Reported contact between O. McGown and A. Ricci, this contact was made cause Ricci has a lag
    No further action

    7217 - Reported contact between N. Newcombe and A. Ricci, this contact was made cause Ricci has a lag
    No further action
    A. Ricci has to fix his internet for the next round, otherwise this will have consequences for him. Also it doesn't make sense to report incident's when your own driver has lags which forced this different contacts which has been reported above.

    12363.408 - R. Alitta is 4 laps down and is going a high risk try to get the inside line of T13 against A. Martino, this ends in a contact between both car's and Martino crashed then into K. Rotting. This results in an DNF for the leading GT car and a huge damage for Martino.
    Penalty - R. Alitta - Avoidable contact - 60sec Stop & Hold

    13793 - Gridello lifts early than Vyslouzil expect it, there for they made slight contact, the stewards can't see why this small bump cause the car to steer onto the grass
    No further action

    Stewards Comments and Feedback
    15.6
    Any driver who exceeds 80km/h at any point during the Code 80 procedure is subject to penalties up to and including a 60 second stop/hold, so as to ensure no team gains an advantage.

    We've been very kindy in this race with Code 80's, but now we'll follow the complete rules. Hopefully we wont see so many incidents during the rest of the season.

    Also a general warning to every LM-P2 driver, you do not have to be that agressive against the GT's as you have shown here in the race. We'll be really harsh in the upcoming races when there will be the same incidents as we had in this race, then we'll review all incidents which was penelized live and that could include a penalty then again for the following race!

    Probation:
    O. Fortin
    - For 4x speeding under C80
    M. Surhanak - For agressive driving

    Race bans:
    C. Reina -
    6x speeding under Code 80 in one race
    F. Benedetti - 5x speeding under Code 80 in one race

    Abbreviations
    DQ = Disqualified
    GR = Gentlemen Rule
    AC = Avoidable Contact
    IF = Infraction
    RI = Racing Incident
    W = Warning
    S&H = Stop and Hold
    DT = Drive Through

    @Jimmi Allison Can you confirm what tracks are used in what series?

    You say different things in the VEC and VLMS forum. 2007 for both in VEC forum, and here in the VLMS forum, you say it's VEC 2014 and VLMS 2007? Or am I misunderstanding you...

    As explained..
    However the track is released for vlms so you should not worry about VEC and the other way around.
    If you want info on VEC go to that forum, as explained there I don't have rfactor in front of me right now and I can't remember the different layouts of the top of my head.

    In the next days - we will work on a similar timing as vec. But it's not just turn on thing. There's a few things that needs to be sorted first.
