    16 September 2009-New "THE BIG WEDNESDAY" Championship 2009.2 PistonCup [FINISHED]

    New patch, new championship!
    netKar PRO 1.1 showed from the beginning to be a huge improvement. So we prepared our next challenge!
    It was difficult to select the right car for our championship, since all of them are just great, giving great feeling and nice emotions, so we decided to select them all!
    Our championship will be, as usual, a bit crazy! Completely a new format, that we hope you will like!
    First of all, different cars, on different tracks. Two races, one short, and one long (eventually with pitstop), on the same day, Wednesday. The Big Wednesday, just like the movie!
    In Italian the name of this movie is even nicer: Un mercoledi' da leoni! Trying to translate it, it's more or less as a day in which you will feel like a lion!
    That's our aim! Just having fun and demonstrate we can be great drivers, no matter what is the car we use, the track or the kind of race.
    The winner will demonstrate to be an adaptable driver, that will be fast in all conditions.
    We want clean races so we changed our rules accordingly.

    We added the new season to GPCOS, so you can start enrolling to our races. Please maintain your allocation for all the races.

    At the moment is not possible to select in GPCOS the newer tracks, Aosta and Adelaide, nor the Phillips Island and A1-ring, that are namie tracks, so the names on the schedule are not correct. Right information are mentioned in the race info. Sorry for the inconvinient. We hope we can fix this soon, at least for the newer tracks.

    We decided to introduce in our champ even some Namie tracks despite they have some problems with non-transparent textures, because we like so much to drive there.
    We hope you will close one eye and will enjoy driving there anyway!

    Interesting line up of tracks Smile

    I'll have to miss the first round because my computer can't handle a full grid of Abarths at Aosta. It'll be a slideshow Wink I'll be there for the rest though.

    Visto che ci sono molti piloti italiani, ho tradotto le regole di pista anche in italiano.
    Nessuna scusa ora per non conoscerle!!! E' importante sapere come comportarsi in pista nel nostro campionato.


    Since we have quite a lot of Italians in our league I translated the Track Rules in Italian also.
    No excuse for everyone now! It's important to know how to behave on track on our championship.

    In case we will reach at least 22 contestants we will create two groups. In any case we will not handle more than 30 people.

    If this condition is met, we will race on two servers on the same time.

    For our first race, Aosta Semi Oval Intermediate, we will create two groups based on allocation numbers:
    drivers with odd allocation number will race in server 1
    drivers with even allocation number will race in server 2

    In this case we will have 2 races of at least 11 people.
    Qualify: 15 min
    Race: 10 laps
    Points for both groups on this race will be the same: RSRpoints_A



    For the second race, Aosta Grand Sport, groups will be rearranged based upon the results of race1.

    Position from 1 to 7 in server1 and in server2 will go in Server1. The last place available for Server1 will be taken by the driver in 8 place that will have the lower race time in race1.

    So race2 will have a full grid in server1 and at least 7 people in server2.
    Qualify: 15 min
    Race: 25 laps
    Points will be assigned in the following way:
    Server1 with RSRpoints_A
    Server2 with RSRpoints_B

    Every Wednesday groups will be arranged based upon the classification.
    First 15 in GroupA, others in Group B.
    Race1 and Race2 will be with the same groups on the same day.
    Points will be
    GroupA with RSRpoints_A
    GroupB with RSRpoints_B

    Note that the winner in group B take the same amount of points of the 5th place in group A.
    In this way it will be possible to get a better position for the next Wednesday!

    2 Points will be assigned for the Pole Position (in each server for each race)
    1 Point will be assigned for the Fastest Laps (in each server for each race)

    Points will be assigned only if the driver complete the 50% of the race.

    The two worst results of the season for each driver will be discarded.

    We have some new drivers on board for this second event, Laguna Seca, so we will be racing with two servers at the same time dividing pilots in 2 groups.
    At the moment no one will be excluded! We hope we will have some more contestants before Wednesday so we can have 2 full grids.

    As you know, if you read our Track Rules, the two worst results will be discarded in the whole season, and the official pilots classification is based on the PointsAD(Points after discarding of 2 races).
    This means that after 3 races a classification will be based on 1 event only!

    In this reason after Race1 we will upload the results and we will divide pilots in Group A and Group B as described in the track rules (POINTS AND ORGANIZATION)

    We thought this method could give the opportunity to everyone to have equal opportunity to be in Group A or Group B.

    Race1: 2 servers starting at the same time
    we will create two groups based on allocation numbers:
    drivers with odd allocation number will race in server 1
    drivers with even allocation number will race in server 2

    Points for both groups on this race will be the same: RSRpoints_A


    Race2: 2 server starting at the same time
    groups will be arranged based upon the classification.
    Note: classification is based on the PointsAD(Points after discarding of 2 races). In case of two pilots will have the same PointsAD, then the PointsBD will be considered. If even this value is the same, the allocation will be used to determine who will partecipate to Group A or Group B.
    First 15 in GroupA, others in Group B.

    Points will be
    GroupA with RSRpoints_A
    GroupB with RSRpoints_B


    From this moment on Every Wednesday groups will be arranged based upon the classification.
    First 15 in GroupA, others in Group B.
    Race1 and Race2 will be with the same groups on the same day.
    Points will be
    GroupA with RSRpoints_A
    GroupB with RSRpoints_B

    Andrea ti prego scrivi anche in italiano il regolamento per la selezione dei gruppi..... perchè non c'ho capito una ma**a!

    Dimmi se ho capito... Race 1 sarà composto dai piloti che hanno già un numero di vettura (gruppoA) e (gruppoB) da chi ha lo zero di default.
    Race 2 si baserà invece sulle classifiche del Race1.... giusto???

    EDIT: non avevo capito nulla! i numeri dispari gruppo A, pari gruppo B!

    facendo un rapido sunto:
    Gara1: 2 server in contemporanea
    gruppi creati in base alle allocazioni:
    piloti con numero di allocazione pari nel server 1
    piloti con numero di allocazione dispari nel server 2

    Comunque ho [url=piloti con numero di allocazione pari nel server 1]creato un foglio excel che considera anche eventuali defezioni.[/url]. Bastera' consultare questo prima della gara.

    Gara 2 sara' in base alla classifica generale dopo gara1. Questa classifica e' basata SOLO sul miglior risultato ottenuto nelle 3 gare precedenti (2 ad Aosta e 1 a Laguna). In questo modo solo un risultato su 3 gare e' quello utile. Cosi' anche i nuovi arrivati hanno la stessa possibilita' di entrare in gara2 nel gruppo A se in gara1 fanno un buon piazzamento.

    Yesterday we had some problems with our GPCOS because a lot of drivers didn't update their nkName.
    I hope you can do that in the next day, so I can fix everything in the classification.

    Something else went wrong, since the worst 2 results are not calculated. I will try to sort this out.
    Yesterday was too complex, with all drivers willing to drive, to do that manually.
    We lost a lot of time, and I'm really sorry for that, but things didn't go the way I expected.

    From next race everything will be much easier because entry list will be created in advance, and will not change between the two races, so everything will be smoother.

    We had one more problem with our nK server changing configuration on two servers at the same time. An old configuration was read.
    I understood now how to handle it, and I learnt from experience that before asking the contestants to join, we should enter the servers and check that everything is set properly.

    We will learn from these problems, and we will make sure that will not happen again!

    Despite these, I'm pretty happy with the results of the race. I saw, generally, clean races, and very close battles, and some amazingly fast drivers. Well done!!!

    Post by Andrea Lojelo on Fri Sep 25, 2009 12:51 pm

    After a team summit yesterday, we decided to consider NOT VALID Laguna Seca Race2.
    the reasons are multiple:
    - we had some problems with GPCOS, so we could not determine the correct classification easily, and in reasonable time, excluding the 2 worst results. For this reason the groups were not correct for race2
    - Some people joined the wrong server, preventing the right people to join server1 because it was full. I was forced to shut down the server to allow the right people to get in
    - we had some problems with server configuration. By mistake the session were not set properly. We had to restart the server once again
    - One pilot not enrolled in our championship, and not present in chat connected to server1 (creating even quite a lot of problems on track with lag and misbehaviour).

    Quite some problem as you can see! Some people get lost, and went away.
    For all those reason we decided to consider that race as a Special Event, so no points are assigned, but only Trophy for our Hall of Fame. Race2 was, at the end a great fun, despite the problems, so it's good that the winner had a least something from it!

    We are taking some actions for improving our overall system. We will keep you updated.

    For next event we will not have anymore the big caos caused by not so clear understanding of what was happening and who have to go to which server, since there will not be anymore an intermediate classification, as described in the rules.

    I created a table with the current classification and entry list for next races on our Driving Standings page.

    Just ignore the results on GPCOS. There are some known issues calculations with groups and of course with the not merged account.
    We are working with Jaap to fix these problems.

    We will stick to our rules for the following rounds.
    We all had 1 race that is determining the current entry list(because the two worst results out of three races are excluded)! so still everyone has the same opportunity for our 3rd racing day!
    Every week, as described in the rules we will rearrange the groups according with the standing (considering the PointsAD).
    The groups will be the same for Race1 and Race2 on the same racing day.

    Thanks for your patience. We are trying our best to handle this championship in the best way as possible, understanding where we did mistakes, and trying to learn from them.

    I hope to see you all in the next race in Crema for two more spectacular races, and hopefully with four more full grids!

    Please make sure to set your nkname properly for the next event.
    on the driving standings
    Clicking on the Exclamation you can fix the problem.
    In this case your account is duplicated, make sure to put the right nkName and then ask Jaap to merge the accounts using this form.

    I used this form, and still waiting Andrea, but it seems i'm not duplicated, Wink
    Anyway, i looked at my guid on game and it's the same as on gpc or radiator gpcos, same as license name.
    Team name was not correct, and changed it, so from my side all is ok.

    I see a lot of drivers without number, as my team mate Lars, can you assign them a number?

    Only 4 drivers for 2 full servers, Wink

    I updated the following numbers looking at the skins:
    Katsushika Matsumoto 88
    Ron Attwood 65
    Jarkko Sihvola 121
    Lars Scheving 39 (???) I don't have the skin...so I based on his number on GPC

    For the others still without a number please send me a PM.

    There are still some driver in classification, but without allocation.

    Hi,

    I don't know if there is always some place available for the radiator Spring Championship.
    I made all needed :

    If you don't have yet an account on our League management System, GPCOS, please create your user and, eventually your team

    Please make sure that your nKPro name is filled in correctly
    Go to the Control Center
    Driver options
    Maintain user profile
    fill in nKPRO name with your current licence number (Example: Jaap_Wagenvoort_1499767090)

    Please read carefully the Track Rules here



    On the "GPCOS: Maintain driver allocations " I made my request to join the
    RadiatorSprings Racing team.


    Hope I could be on for this evening
