Alexander Gasta and Davin Braune chat in Quali - Warning to both
3951 - Timotej Andonovski doesn't slow down in an area where an accident occurs and hits the rear of Agnus Tong - This is clearly Timotej's fault but no further action necessary as this DNF has cost Timotej his license.
4041 - Benjamin Waymel tries to lap Bas van Dort. However he just cuts in front of Bas pushing both cars onto the grass. Warning to Benjamin
5100 - Michael Jaggie gets lapped by Devin Braune on the inside. Devin is far enough besides him but Michael turns in regardless causing contact. No consequences for both cars - warning to Michael
2470 - Devin Braune attempts to lap Valerio Nicolella at the beginning of the straight. Valerio almost causes contact by driving towards the left side of the straight. - Warning to Valerio, you always have to keep your line and be predictable at the corner exit. That means stay where you are and DO NOT move towards the inside!
3506 - Devin Braune attempts to lap Mario Peixoto at the beginning of a short straight. Mario almost causes contact by driving towards the left side of the track - Warning to Mario, you always have to keep your line and be predictable at the corner exit.

You really want to practice the pit entry and not cross the pit entry line.

Lots of people don't get their license simply because of that line. You have been warned

@Profeti Marco

Since last season you have not figured out how to use the proper name on the server. Next race you will use your proper name, capital letters at the beginning of first and last name and that's it.
No underlines, no special characters.
If you can't folow these rules I will kick you from the server

This track is a weird one for the anticut rules as many corners simply have no white lines. Are cuts exclusively handled by the game here? People can already be seen using the full track width in a few corners regardless of kerbs because the game allows it. Just asking to clarify if I can do that or what exactly counts as track here.
Additionally, in many corners it actually costs a bit of time to leave the track at the outside. Do the slowdown rules still apply if that happens? Due to it being slower the game doesn't award a cut warning.

Clarification would be nice as the rules state the game usually automatically takes care of this, but this isn't the case in the corners in question (which is half the track basically)

We never penalise cuts during the race, it always does the game itself, so feel free to discover driving limits of this track, but as Flo has already mentioned, there will be no mercy for pitenter line cuts.

Yes Michael, I have never penalised driving on the grass at NOLA pitenter area so far, but if it will cause an accident, it will be penalised even without IRR, because in replay I check pit enters for all 90 minutes.

Glad we are not racing in Portugal. Max temperature for the upcoming weekend is 34º Celsius. Now image how hot the asphalt gets on these days. :barefoot:

I'll have two bottles of water next to me during the race, that's for sure. And a towel. And a fan. :cool:

Fun fact: Asphalt temperature in rF2 is physically locked to 29°C anyways so only the car's cooling systems would be affected @Mario Peixoto :p
Well that, and everyone unlucky enough to have to actually race in those temperatures. Over here we had 38°C last week. Can confirm, not good
