    See Main Forum for Official Race Time Clock

    This is an Endurance event :
    Qualification start time:
    GMT 20:00 ( 30 min )
    Race start time: GMT 20:30 (36 Laps Approx. 80 min)

    Important Please Read

    For this event we are using a modified version of the original Mercedes 300 SEL 6.8L mod made by DonPanoz. Permission was granted by DonPanoz to Yves Larose to make the modifications to the mod and use it for the event. The modifications are the following:

    - Tyre wear has been modified to suit the new fuel tank capacity and fuel consumption.
    - The fuel tank has been reduced to 75 Ltr compared to the 140 Ltr of the original mod.
    - The fuel consumption has been made higher than the original mod.
    - Liveries have been added and/or deleted.

    Note 1: Tyre and fuel will be set at normal
    Note 2: Only the skins that come with the mod please. The first 22 signups have to pick a different livery, after that the next 22 sign up follow the same rule. See liveries choice pic below, just indicate the livery number (orange number) you want to use with your sign up.

    Note 3: Unpack simply extract the GameData folder to the main GTL folder and let it overwrite if asked. If you already have the mod installed it is recommended that you move it to a temporary location before installing the new one. It is also recommended that after the event you replace the modified version of the mod with the original one to avoid any conflict in further events that use it.
    Note 4: We are using the SIMBIN lobby for this event. See here how to switch lobby.
    Note 5: Qualy is an unlimited laps within the qualifying period.
    Note 6: Racing Room must be given to all drivers and this works both ways. Divebombing into and across a corner denies people the chance to make the corner correctly just as much as someone obliviously (or deliberately) cutting the nose off of another driver who has achieved partial overlap fairly.
    Note 7: The track boundary is the white lines and 2 wheels must remain between them at all times even on the oval part of the track the wall to the right is not the track boundary. the first oval part is between turn 5 and turn 6 and the second oval part is between turn 14 and turn 1 ( see track map below)

    A little bit of history

    The track :

    As far back as 1986, in the former socialist East Germany, it was planned to convert one of the huge open coal mine pits into a race track. In the late 1990s, this idea was taken up again in order to build a replacement for the AVUS in Berlin.

    Winding in the infield of the high-speed tri-oval, there is a regular road race track for automobile and motorbike racing, using various track configurations up to roughly 4,500 m. The stands around the tri-oval have a capacity of 120,000, while the huge main grandstands have 25,000 seats, and unlike many circuits, the entire circuit can be seen from the main grandstand. Also a test oval with long straights and steeply banked corners is located next to the track. All tracks can be connected to form a 11 km long endurance racing course, but this option was not yet used for a major event, but as a test track capability. According to the Wiki page

    The car :

    Brief history lesson of the Mercedes 300 SEL 6,8L according to the wiki page: The car started out as a private venture in 1966 by company engineer Erich Waxenberger. His principle was simple: take the powerful 6.3 litre V8Mercedes-Benz M100 engine from the luxurious 600 limousine, and fit it into the regular Mercedes-Benz W109 S-Class model which only had 6-cylinder engines at that time. The result was a nearly 2-tonne saloon with performance similar to most dedicated sports cars of the era. It is said that Rudolf Uhlenhaut, when invited to test drive the prototype, opened the hood at the first red light to find out how the big engine and its supporting equipment had been squeezed in there.

    Here a lap for you to see ;)
