This map shows the pit lane but street names are the same as the map in the OPPit Entry:
Bear left on the roundabout after Yiu Sing Street (the track continues to the right, which is easy to miss)Pit Exit:
Rejoin on the left on the main straight. Attempt to respect the blend line but it's very tight so we will allow some leway. Please announce pit exit.Track notes
The start is on the straight after the final corner, a few hundred meters after the start/finish timing line. The first corner is extremely
tight and your tyres and brakes will
be cold. Make sure you can get round the corner from off the racing line and be prepared brake early and/or take avoiding action if there's a crash.If you crash and your car is blocking part of the track, please announce this on Teamspeak
and give your approximate location on the track. Having a printout of the track map available (or having the track map on a second screen) may help with this. In addition, please respect yellow flags, as there may be a car blocking the track round the next corner
. We'll take a dim view if you join someone else's accident when you should have reasonably been warned by yellow flags and/or your own reactions.
This is a very tight and challenging track and overtaking will be difficult. Please be patient when trying to overtake as sticking your car up the inside of most corners is unlikely to be successful. If you are being lapped, try to move over at the first reasonable opportunity but remember that you have the right to run your own race and you shouldn't compromise your race too much in the process.Event notes
Remember there is no formation lap, so you will not have any chance to warm up your tyres and brakes before the race.
Since the grid on these tracks is often well away from the start/finish line, laptimes from lap 1 are not eligible for fastest lap points.
The 40 minute race cannot be run flat out. Make sure you know the basics of power conservation (especially lifting and coasting) as you will not reach the finish otherwise. Feel free to ask for help here or on the Realish Racing Discord server
if you're not sure what to do.
Please be patient and try to play the long game. In both practice races last week, there was a significant rate of attrition and all finishers would have scored points in a championship race. There will be accidents and mistakes, and if you reach the end of either race without any major incidents, you will probably do quite well.
We will review lap 1 of both races as well as any incident reports. Please report incidents to @camp_bell
on this forum or Discord by 19:00 UK time on Tuesday, 21st January 2020.
