    .................................................. ...................

    Race review and penalties:
    The race review team will review the start after each race, as well as review any incidents for which an incident protest was filed, and issue any penalties as appropriate. The results of these reviews will be posted no later than one week before the next event. All drivers are required to read the race review/penalty thread before the upcoming race so that they will be aware if they are required to serve any penalties. Any driver receiving a penalty will also be notified via PM. NOTE: Unless otherwise specified in the driver briefing for an event, the review team typically will only review the start for each event. Therefore if you experience an incident during an event that happens after the Start, you will need to use our Incident Protest Form to file an official protest if you wish to have it reviewed.


    !!!PLEASE be familiar with CMS rules and regulations!!!

    Race night!


    Drivers, if you haven't been around in a few days, please check the car details and selection thread for this series and download and install the SRS update, and the "skin pack" (just some additional cars in case we end up with more than the original series allows for)....

    If you have not selected a specific car, please do so before the race, or if you choose to be the procrastinator amongst us, please be sure you are not duplicating someone else's car tonight.
    There are enough cars for all, there is no reason for duplicate cars to be on track.

    Well, AMS is crashing again, but a bit differently this time: The track load bar reached 100%, and I appeared to be at the track (saw the list of other drivers), but then it just stopped. No attempts to notify Microsoft this time, and yes, I did install both the new SRS and the multiskinpack to the AMS root folder.

    When I get time I'll try the trace suggestions put up by Gilles and Jason for the Caterhams. That mod did eventually "fix itself" before I got a chance to do this, so now I'll work it through. Or when I get time I'll work it through, but I'm totally burned out on it tonight.

    Have fun. :-/

    Keep after it Chris! We had a fun race tonight with a good turnout. I'm pretty sure you would have enjoyed this. Once you sort out the car to your liking.. that is. Hope to see you in the series soon!
