NAFPRA Race Announcement...
« on: September 15, 2017, 11:28:07 PM »
What: First Person Moto3 Grand Prix of the Czech Republic - Server -> NAFPRA_#6

When: 7:30p EST on Wednesday, December 27, 2017 [12:30a GMT Thursday, December 28, 2017]

Track Opens For Practice @ 6:30p EST [11:30p GMT]

15 Minute Qualifying Session Begins @ 7:15p EST [12:15a GMT Wednesday]

19 Lap Race Begins Shortly After Qualifying

Weather Conditions Will Be Cloudy and 32 Degrees C with Winds from the West @ 4 m/s

Track Mod Autodrom Most NDS & Bike Mod 3.90 with Dunlop Moto 3 Tyres


Please Note:

1) The format has been changed to eliminate the Warm Up and Sighting Laps. Polling will be turned on so we will have up to five (5) restarts if necessary.

2) Be sure to pick your Race Setup when bounced back to the pit after qualifying.

3) Be sure to download the Server Race Replay @ www.cycotek.net ten (10) minutes after completion of racing. The results portion of the page is being reworked so a link to the results will not be immediately available, however, you will have thirty (30) minutes in which to download your results before the server resets.

4) Be sure to check back here each day as there will be a race every evening @ 7:30p from today through January 1, 2018. We will also be running races earlier in the day starting on Thursday, December 28, 2017. Daytime races will also run through January 1, 2018. Day time race times to be determined.

The DSQ problem was horrendous. It is frustrating having to restart continually, but the right call I think. Getting a race started with the minimum DSQs seemed to be the only way to go.

Hey it was quite a nice race. Sorry for all those people who didn't make the start, trust me we have all been there a million times over the last years. The trick is to expect a disqual then you are happy when you don't get one.

But yeh Pib needs to sort this stuff and not get distracted by stupid leg dangle stuff.  ::)

This join the track bouncing disqual  problem is new so needs sorting out.
Keep reporting the problem so PiB is aware of the scale of it. Don't assume he knows about it - we never see any acknowledgement.

Thanks Uber and team it was remarkably lag-free considering the distance, and sooo nice to race in 1p again. Just a shame I couldn't get there a bit earlier for some practice.

Good job!  :D

Good race guys. that was fun....mostly. the server seemed smooth to me. other riders seemed stable on track. the real problem was getting the race started without a DSQ from me or several people(mostly me  :-[). after 4, 5, 6... restarts, it finally worked. from there it was good. even the train wreck in T2 was smooth and,IMO, caused by driver awareness(or unawareness? ::)), and not jumping, lagggy bikes.

i say it was a successful test. something has to be done about the race starts, tho. that was getting ridiculous with the restarts, and i feel bad for the few that left before the race finally started. i can't blame them tho. i look forward to more races. good race to everybody, and congrats to Conor, and Warlock for a fine demonstration  8)

Thanks Timbo, don't worry for restarts m8, we all been there, was an specially tricky track for the start as bike tends to move in hills. Experience in starts will make it easier despite the bug.

Fun race , looking forward to another 1st P view event. Thanks for this, i missed it for a long time. I was surprised by the number of riders in this kind of event, although some good ones were missing. Im sure bigger bikes will get even more people.  ;)

Didn't do nearly enough practice but still had a fun time.   ;D
...except crashing on the last lap and losing a place - that's never fun.   ::)

Cheers guys.

I don't think you did as it doesn't happen for another 90 minutes.
