NZrFL48: V8 Supercars - Round 5 - Townsville Street Circuit (25/09/18)

Round 5 of for our V8 Supercars Championship takes us to our second round in the sunshine state. This time up to Townsville. We should see lots of curb hopping, door banging, close action at this classic parklands track!

Track: Townsville Street Circuit

Schedule:
[20:00] - Official Practise
[20:40] - Qualifying
[20:55] - Drivers Briefing
[21:00] - Racing Commences

Format:
1x 18 laps (50km) sprint race, grids based off qualifying
1x 35 laps (100km) feature race, one compulsory pit stop including ding mandatory 4x tyres changed, grids based off race 1 results with top 6 reversed.

A couple of things regarding this track. If you run wide at turn 5 (the fast right handier) you will get a cut track. IF you keep 2 wheels inside the green line you wont get penalized.

Pit entry will need to be practiced, See Mikes post Below for details.

I've attached an image of the pit entry speed limit line. It's very easy to miss the line and to get a penalty. Also, be aware this pit entry lane is incredibly narrow, you will need to practice entry.

My kids have a school play tonight so I may be a bit late. But given that I can't get that car into the 1.11's anyway, I think qualifying is a moot point for me tonight O_o

I think I'll try to forget last night.ever happened.... O_o

It seems that the game issued me 4 stop/go penalties at once for spinning across the grass in the second left/right chicane. That's why clearing the penalty (by Mike) had no effect as I still had 3 left...... so I spend 3 laps doing 3 Stop/Go penalties! 8o

I have quickly put together the top 10 taking into account the drop round (Round rather then races). Disclaimer this was only a quick throw together. I believe this is correct but i haven't double checked.

Murphys Law - 720
JP - 684
MMJ - 634
Bull - 606
Rifty - 582
Obsc3ne - 494
Mike - 528
