Follow this link for the time in your part of the world.  The link at  http://www.worldtime...r...;h=20&mn=30 is set for when qualifying starts in Texas time (Central US) and you just have to find your city or country in the drop-down menu for the "In" time.  Or it might default to your location.

Unless I'm mistaking, our Brazilian friends had to set their clock back to standard time overnight.

To avoid any confusion for Friday's next race, I just wanted to remind them to take this into account and plan accordingly. We wouldn't want you to miss it.  ;)

Since I'm not sure of your individual time zone locations, I'm not going to try and tell you at what local time practice will start.  Just know that it's GMT Saturday Feb.23, 02:30 AM (it usually is always at that time during the Standard time period in Northern hemisphere)

That should be Friday Feb.22 11:30 PM in Rio de Janeiro.

-------------------

Over the next few weeks, there will be several time changes around the world. I will try to issue reminders in due time.

As I mentioned  just before, the usual practice time is GMT Saturday, 02:30 AM during the Standard time period in Northern hemisphere.

Since North America will switch to Daylight Saving / Summer Time on March 9, 2008 at 02:00AM, this will affect the time of future races.

So from March 9 2008 to November 2 2008, practice time will start at  GMT Saturday, 01:30 AM

--------------------

Europe will swith to Daylight Saving / Summer Time on March 30, 2008

Australia will swith back to Standard Time on March 30, 2008

I just would like to bring to your attention the change of time that took place last weekend for the U.S,, Canada and Mexico.

We have set our clocks forward one hour to Daylight Saving Time/Summer Time.

So for all of you outside North America, please note that the Wednesday evening practice as well as the Friday evening race will be held at GMT 01:30 AM, whatever that makes for each of you, it's one hour earlier than your usual time.

Once again, that often confusing time of the year has come, the time where countries around the world start changing their clock 1 hour forward or backward depending on where they are on the globe.

A few weeks ago, it was Brazil who set their clocks back one hour.

Last night (March 8 2009), the United States, Canada and Mexico have set their clock FORWARD to Daylight Saving Time/Summer Time.

So for all of you outside North America, please note that the Wednesday evening practice as well as the Friday evening race will be held at GMT 01:30 AM, whatever that makes for each of you, it's one hour earlier than your usual time.
That new time will be in effect from March 8 2009 until November 1st 2009

To avoid any confusion for Friday's next race, I just wanted to remind you to take this into account and plan accordingly. We wouldn't want you to miss it.  ;)

--------------------

Argentina will switch back to Standard Time on March 15, 2009

Europe will switch to Daylight Saving / Summer Time on March 29, 2009

Western Australia (Perth) will switch back to Standard Time on March 29, 2009

Eastern Australia (Melbourne) will switch back to Standard Time on April 5, 2009

Time to get this thread up again to remind people of the different time changes around the world.


Australia has already switched to Summer time (Daylight Saving Time) a couple of weeks ago (October 5). (GMT +9 to +11)

Brasil and Argentina has switched to Summer time (Daylight Saving Time) just last night.  (mainly GMT -2)

Europe (Sweden) will be going back to Standard Time on October 25. (GMT +1)

North America will be going back to Standard Time on November 1st. (mainly GMT -5 to -8)

-------------------

So to sum up,  the GMT times for our next few races will look like this:

Clermont-Ferrand - October 24 - 1:30 AM GMT  

Monaco - October 31 - 1:30 AM GMT  - Careful Urban! That's one hour EARLIER than usual for you! ;)

Spa - November 6 - 2:30 AM GMT - (Back to usual time for Urban)


Please adjust to your own local time accordingly.

Yes, it's one of those confusing times of the year again when some countries start setting their clock forward (North) or back (South).

The next fun race at Bridgehampton will start at 01:30 GMT instead of the usual 02:30 GMT as North America is switching to Summer time (Daylight Saving Time).



I think Brasil has switched back to Standard time last week. (mainly GMT -3)

Europe (Sweden) will only set their forward in a couple of weeks on March 28. (GMT +2)

Finally, Australia should switch back to Standard time on April 4th. (GMT +10 for Melbourne)



-------------------

I guess that means that Urban will have get up one hour earlier for Bridgehampton and Panchine, 2 weeks in a row ! ;) (or not?)


Same for Craig, except I hope he is already up by then. :)

By the time our next practice session and race take place (Wednesday, November 10 and Friday November 12) everyone in North-America will already be back at Standard Time.

This means that our race/practice time will now be at 2:30 GMT instead of 1:30 GMT.

For our friends in Europe (Urban) it also means that race sessions are back to usual time (3:30 AM in Sweeden).


I noticed that MARK JONES is from New Zealand (Christchurch I believe). So Mark, be aware that our sessions will start one hour later for you, 3:30 PM unless I'm mistaking.

Please adjust with your local times.

The next 65mod fun race at Rouen-les-Essarts will start at 01:30 GMT instead of the usual 02:30 GMT as North America have switched to Summer time (Daylight Saving Time) last night.



I think Brasil has switched back to Standard time last February 19. (mainly GMT -3)

Europe (Sweden) will only set their forward in a couple of weeks on March 27. (GMT +2)

Finally, Australia and New Zealand should switch back to Standard time on April 3rd. (GMT +10 for Melbourne / GMT +12 for Christchurch)

Absolutely, in fact the bright side for me about the time change is there may now be time after the race for a relaxing siesta...  B)

Once again, It's time to confuse everyone by switching race time as some countries start setting their clock forward (North) or back (South).

The next 69X-mod fun race at Banburgh will start at 01:30 GMT instead of the usual 02:30 GMT as North America will switch to Summer time (Daylight Saving Time) on Sunday March 10.


I think part of Brasil has switched back to Standard time last February 24. (mainly GMT -3)

Europe (Sweden) will only set their clocks forward in three weeks on March 31. (GMT +2)

Finally, most of Australia and New Zealand should switch back to Standard time on April 7. (GMT +10 for Melbourne / GMT +12 for Christchurch)

...unless I'm mistaking



-------------------

I guess that means that Urban will have to get up one hour earlier for Banburgh, Barber and Bikernieki68 (The killer B's?), 3 weeks in a row ! Posted Image (or not?)


For Craig and Mark, it means sitting down one hour earlier for four weeks in a row before they switch.

No, this not just an old post. It's that time of the year again as we're start switching from GMT to DST or vice-versa,

The next F2 Mod Fun race at Jops Siffert will start at 01:30 GMT instead of the usual 02:30 GMT as North America will switch to Summer time (Daylight Saving Time) on Sunday March 9.


I think part of Brasil has switched back to Standard time last February 23. (mainly GMT -3)

Europe (Sweden) will only set their clocks forward in three weeks on March 30. (GMT +2)

Finally, most of Australia and New Zealand should switch back to Standard time on April 6. (GMT +10 for Melbourne / GMT +12 for Christchurch)

...unless I'm mistaking



-------------------

I guess that means that Urban would have to get up one hour earlier for Jops Siffert, Willow Springs and Road Atlanta.


For Craig and Mark, it means sitting down one hour earlier for four weeks in a row before they switch.

It's that time of the year again as we're start switching from DST to Standard time or vice-versa,

I think by now, part of Brasil, most of Australia and New Zealand has moved their clocks forward to DST.

Europe (Sweden) will set their clocks back to Standard Time this weekend on October 26. (GMT +2)

But North America will move back to Standard Time a week after that, on November 2nd 2014.

So, our next F2 Mod Fun race at Nurburgring will be held at our usual time (01:30 GMT) but for Urban, it will be one hour EARLIER that usual.

The week after, on November 7 at "Saint Jovite - Mont Tremblant" and until March 2015, the races will start at 02:30 GMT

Once again, It's that confusing time of the year as most of North America set its clocks ONE HOUR FORWARD to DST on Sunday March 8.

Our next races will start at 01:30 GMT instead of the usual 02:30 GMT.


For Most of those outside North America, our next races will start ONE HOUR EARLIER.

The week after, on November 6 at "Nurburgring" and the following events, the races will start at 02:30 GMT, until further notice.
