How Daylight Savings affects you...

Monday, September 24, 2018


It's Daylight savings time again and with the clocks jumping forward an hour, OZNZ Members can expect changes to the race schedule.


At OZNZ Sim Racing we base our server and website times on Sydney. Once the Daylight Savings time zone shuffle is done, you can always find out when an event is starting by looking at the top of the page at The clock will always be set to Sydney time and all events will have a start time listed based on that clock.
