* Redress. If you gain position advantage over another driver by colliding with them such that their car leaves the track, or by cutting the track yourself, you are expected to redress your position as soon as safely possible. Gaining position by "reasonable" side-by-side contact is allowed, but rear collisions must be avoided. This won't be enforced. It is an honour system.
* Track Re-entry. You must always re-enter the track with extreme caution. Any collision on re-entry must be redressed.
* Assists. Driving assists like ABS and TC can be used if available on the car. There is no forced driving view.
* Fuel/Tyre Multiplier. Due to an AC bug, please ensure that your Fuel and Tyre wear multipliers in offline mode are set to 1x.

I think with tike zones and all thats a bit optomistic for WA, I think WW1 is still being broadcast on the wireless. In 30 years or so they will get a colour TV in the Perth square.

That's right, we've been too busy enjoying our beautiful white sanded, shark infested, beaches. to worry about the rest of the world.
And BTW, we've had colour Tv for years. Two colours.. Black and white.

PS. happy to hear you got a few rain free hours this week in Melbourne to play tennis.

The 1st chicane..

It can be taken pretty straight without triggering a penalty or getting a red light on RSR.

How are we going to take this chicane? before someone gets out of their car and rage-points..

Not sure why the guy that made the track didnt make those apex objects solid, would avoid the confusion but greatly add to the chaos in a race. As is those objects are just pretty silly as you can drive straight through them though Im sure most wont be doing that   ;)
