Starting from Wednesday the 1st of April, OZNZ will be starting Mid-Week racing, intended to act as a support category for the Sunday Night Series.

Each Wednesday, we will race on the same Circuit that is scheduled for the upcoming Sunday and will be driving either the Toyota GT86, or the Legends Ford 34 Coupe.

We will not be counting points for the Wednesday night races, preferring to keep it as a casual race night to give us some mid-week racing and a chance to familiarize ourselves with the track for Sunday night.

We will not require drivers to register for the race as we want to encourage people to come in and join in the fun.

There will not be any custom livery submissions available either as the cars as always subject to change.

If you have been thinking about getting into Sim Racing and have Assetto Corsa, then the OZNZ Mid-Week Support Category racing might be just the thing for you! To join in the race, you just need to join us on Discord and be able to hear voice chat to get the server password.

Anyone is welcome to join us!

And we've already hit a snag.

The Aussie Touring Car Master series is due to start this weekend with Round 1 at Oran Park.

Unfortunately, over the course of the week various members running on the Practice Server have found issues with the Oran park Mod, meaning that we are forced to move venue.

Round 1 on Sunday the 24th of November will now be held at Phillip Island.

An updated download link for the Phillip Island track is now on the series overview page and the Practice server is being updated.

The rest of the series is scheduled to run at tried and tested tracks that we have used in OZNZ series multiple times in the past.

This means that the races at Symmons Plains, Eastern Creek, Pukekohe and Bathurst remain unaffected!

See you on track for some Rumbling, Roaring Classic V8 Fun!

Well, it's that time of year and once again the clocks have changed and we need to let you know how the shuffling of the hour hand affects league racing at OZNZ Sim Racing.

Daylight Savings is upon us and as of today, both New Zealand and the parts of Australia that observe Daylight Savings have pushed the forward an hour.

For OZNZ League Racing, the race times are affected as below.

NZ, SA, NSW, VIS, TAS: No change to race times. Official practice launches at 6pm on Sunday night with Qualification and racing beginning at approx 7pm.

WA, NT, QLD: Racing begins 1 hour EARLIER! Official practice launches at 5pm, with Qualification and racing beginning at approx 6pm.

A quick OZNZ update:

Things are a bit behind at OZNZ at the moment. I (akaPillarz) have been busy and unwell all at once and unfortunately, OZNZ had to slide down the priority list a little.

The Admin team kept the wheels turning, finishing out the RS.01 Challenge with some great results for our members with Vander Hum taking out the top step and Erik close on his heels taking out second place for the series.

Amazing results guys!

On the subject of amazing results, 2DoGs, CarboOZ, Gemonic and Llamafett took on the iRacing Petit LeMans on Saturday and managed to survive the blind, winding corners of Road Atlanta for 10 hours to bring their Ferrari 488 GTE home 2nd in Class for their split, which is an amazing achievement!

OZNZ is on a short hiatus for the next couple of weeks. With the NRL Grand Final on tonight and the Bathurst 1000 on next Sunday, we figured trying to run official series for the few that would not be to busy or drunk to race was a bit of a waste, so we will return on Sunday the 20th of October for Round 1 of the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge.

Speaking of which, registration for our Penultimate series of 2019, the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge has now opened. The full series info and sign up can be found on the OZNZ Sim Racing page of the website.

In the coming week, we will reveal the details of our final series for 2019 and trust us, we are aiming to go out with a bang!

As always, thank you to everyone for your continued support of OZNZ. This community is one I am always proud to be a part of.
