No you're right, I wasn't. Although I have been in many races on which the track has been controversial regarding cutting. I've been in trouble once for it, one too many which possibly cost me a championship, or a proper run for it anyway.


I know that some people are more inclined to pushing the boundaries further than allowed, especially in a FWD car that makes it much more easy to cut, as sometimes they don't quite stick like you would want them to, leading to taking "shortcuts" or running too wide.


You just have to move on, try to improve on that point where in the future you won't even think about cuts, you'll adjust to the track and the happenings around you instinctively. and I know you are good enough to do so.


Yeah it sucks you lost a win, but then it does make you want to try harder next time around does it ? ;)



lol ... :)

will be very difficult to win another race in ATCC. I am not a pilot to win races.

this was a lucky win, lol ...but I will fight.


Sorry for  stupid question in last post.

Notes for the drivers:


  • All drivers must be in the server with fifteen minutes to go until the qualifying session (02:15GMT), unless you have made prior arrangement. You risk losing your spot to a reserve if you are in Div2 or to a Div2 driver if you are in Div1. Once you are in the server, please try to stay there as much as possible for easier monitoring of attendance.
  • This track is fast with significant elevation changes, and corners that come one right after the other while changing direction as well, which means there are many opportunities to create contact by misjudging braking points and re-entering the track after an off. Be aware of other drivers braking points and adjust yours accordingly.
  • On the opening lap, the natural funnel points will be at T1, T7A and T11, be extra vigilant at these corners. Remember you will have cold brakes and unoptomised tyres on the opening laps, so drive accordingly!
  • You are not expected to wait for another driver should you be at fault in an incident. However, should you choose to wait (to avoid being reported post-race) then do so in a safe position and within a lap of the incident. Accidents caused by drivers waiting in dangerous areas will be penalised severely.
  • The staff will investigate all lap one incidents and any observed on the live broadcast - but aside from that, any incident needs to be reported within 72 hours for the staff to be able to review it - it is also fair to say that lap one incidents will be dealt harsher penalties then those during other parts of the race due to the potential for damage involved.May I remind you of the TPS Rules & Regulations.


Rolling Start Details:

  • Excessive weaving, hard braking, hard acceleration and general tyre warming behaviour is not allowed in ATCC.
  • Anybody who spins out during the formation lap will be able to resume their position but must be extremely cautious while moving back through the field, flashing their lights if necessary. This is the only time excessive flashing of lights may be used.
  • Drivers proceed two-by-two, with no overtaking.
  • Your speed may not exceed 105kph/65mph during the formation lap.
  • All drivers must maintain this speed until the pole sitter comes to the Starting Line, at which point he may begin accelerating.
  • Drivers must wait for the leader to cross the Starting line before starting to race. (Drivers do not have to wait to cross the Starting Line themselves before accelerating and racing.)
  • The formation lap is part of the in-game race distance.


Track Boundaries:

  • Track boundaries at Birmingham are the default TouringProSeries rules, which can be read via the link above, article 6.3.
  • Curbing and additional area beyond the curbs, which may be used, are indicated by the white curbing and sand colored textures beyond the curb.


Pit Entry/Exit:

  • When entering the pits, you must not cut across the pit entry line, you must keep all four wheels inside the entry line at all times.
  • When exiting the pits, you must keep in the pit exit marked out until it ends, with all four wheels.As ever, those not pitting may use these areas freely, but have to give priority to any drivers using this area for pitting purposes.
  • Drivers will be allowed to turn their headlights on (during the final sector) to warn those behind of their intention to pit, this is the ONLY exception to our headlights rule. Make sure to turn them off again before exiting the pits.

Current Division Allocation
Server allocations no longer include special rules for rounds 1 and 2 based on prequalification. Server allocation will now be set only by the championship standings - the top 24 drivers in the overall championship prior to an event will compete in Division One for that event. In case of absence, drivers will move up in championship order from Division Two to Division One. In event of a tie of points (drivers on minus points are classed as equivalent to 0), PreQualification results, then a driver's best result will be used. If there is a still a tie, the date of sign-up will be the final deciding factor. If your name appears in the allocation below, you are expected to show up for the race. If you cannot race you must sign-out in the Absence Report Thread HERE at least by midnight GMT on the day before the race. If you don't see your name on the list below and you are signed up, let me know via PM. If you wish to sign-up, please follow thin instructions in the Sign-Up Thread. Sign-up Thread will remain open for the foreseeable future.

One of the most important principles in the Touring Pro Series is attendance. If a driver signs up, he is expected to attend all races in that championship.

However, the management realise that real life can get in the way, all we ask is that this is reported as far in advance as possible, as a form of courtesy should there be any replacement drivers waiting.

Absence must be reported at the very latest by 23:59GMT of the day before an event:

  • If you post after the deadline, then you will have one strike against your name - three late reports in this manner (after the deadline but prior to the first official session of the race event) will result in removal from the league.
  • If you post after the event has been started (within 48 hours of the beginning of the first qualifying) then you will only have two chances during the season before you will be removed from the league (report like that counts as "double strike").
  • A single failure to report absence after the 48 hour deadline will result in removal from the league.
