    300 Miles of Sebring- INTRO & INFO

    The RaceDepartment staff expects people who sign up to read this entire article!

    Event: 300 Miles of Sebring
    Date: Saturday - October 13th 2012
    Platform: rFactor2
    Class: Nissan GTR, Nissan 370Z, Renault Megane
    Track: Sebring 12h
    Broadcast: under investigation
    Driver Swaps: None

    INTRODUCTION
    Welcome to second official Racedepartment World Endurance Series event.
    The Racedepartment World Endurance Series, or RDWES for short, is a series of (semi)endurance races we will hold during the year.
    After a blast on Mid Ohio, we will again make a visit to the USA, to Sebring to be exact.
    Sebring International Raceway is one of the oldest continuously-operating race tracks in the United States, its first race being run in 1950. As this track has a long history of Endurance racing, we feel we should honor it by this event.
    There will be NO driver swaps allowed in this event. Total race length is 300 miles, which will equal about 2.5 hours of racing.


    AVAILABLE CARS
    The cars available will all be from the GT classes. In addition to the GT Endurance Series by ISI, we have decided to include the Renault Megane Trophy.
    RaceDepartment will try to stay up to date with the latest patches and releases of these mod’s. This list will be updated according to the latest decisions of the staff concerning implemented patches and releases.
    Available choices will be:

    GT1
    Nissan GT-R

    GT4
    Nissan 370Z
    Maserati GT (taken out due to missing whipers and brake disc glow animation).

    One-Make Racing
    Renault Megane

    SKINS
    For this round, a custom MOD will be created. Everyone who wants to use a custom skin can make one and send it in a working download link. The DEADLINE is October 1st (!!!!), so after that you'll need to pick a standard skin for the race. Happy skinning guys! Don´t forget to put a RD logo on there. :thumbsup:

    Dead line costum skin period has ended!

    SCHEDULE/SESSION INFO - ALL TIMES IN GMT
    Official Practice: 16:30 (90 minutes)
    Qualification: 18:00 (30 minutes)
    Warm-up: 18:30 (15 minutes)
    Race: 18:45 (82 Laps = +/- 300Miles)

    All drivers must be in the server at least 15 minutes before qualifying, anyone who joins after the start of qualifying will start from the back of their specified class with the exception of people who experience last minute technical issues. The server will be open for unofficial practice before official starting time, and will be restarted at 16:30 GMT exactly. From that moment on, the server will stay up, so a nice rubber pavement can be made.

    Signups.
    To sign up for this event, you must have a valid license from Racedepartment. If you sign up, we do expect you to show up!. To sign up, please take a look in the Sign Up Thread.

    For now, we have limited the signup list to 28 entrants. If needed, we can expand that number with an additional 20 drivers, so all can have a go at this.


    Notes.
    · Chatting of any kind during Qualifying and the Race is strictly prohibited in the chat. There is no need to say sorry/thanks/pitting/leaving pits/etc. Anything that needs to be said can wait until after the session.

Please include a description of the incident along with a video. If you are unable to create a video, please include details such as who was involved and where the incident happened with a timestamp. Do not post reports/accusations in the thread itself - negativity and anger gets us nowhere.

    The idea is to start at 2:00pm and have an accelerated time, so the finish should be in the dark, so the transition from light to dark should be there. :)
    I might even put in some rain aswell, but you will notice that in the race. ;)
