    Upcoming Developments - RDiLMS!

    I normally link straight to the forums, but glad I didn't today. For those who do, there were a couple of interesting gems hidden in the club racing announcement:

    "....and the addition of RD's first endurance series outside the walls of rFactor, the RDiLMS. The RDiLMS will bring the same superb mixed class endurance racing ethos of the RDLMS to iRacing 2.0 which boast driver swapping and night racing amongst its features!"

    "Following the recent success of the iRacing club's Indy car events and the large amount of people interested in doing more with it, we also have plans brewing for a mixed road and oval league using the car and the fantastic tracks that iRacing offers. Look out for more news on this as the plans progress."

    Looking forward to both of those!!

    Yeah, I'm SOOOOO there for RDiLMS. I don't do rFactor, so haven't ever gotten to experience RD endurance, but I can't think of anything more fun than doing endurance on iRacing.

    Good job RaceDepartment! I'm looking forward to increased iracing activity. The iRacing group, here, is the best! I think once RD shows stronger commitment to club and league events for this awesome sim, more racers will migrate to RD for their racing fix.

    Yesssss, This will be epic. When iRacing 2.Zero is released we gonna have proper 24hr races, driver swap. But how will night/day transition work? Will it be present? The anticipation.

    I haven't seen anything that suggests that there will be day/night transitions at all. However that isn't say much as I could have missed something but I don't remember seeing anything about it.

    iRacing has said with the next update they will have 24hr races, now it will be silly to have such a feature with just 24hr daylight or 24hr night hehe.

    Well at the moment for hosted racing you can only have 2,4 or 6 hour slots. There is no day to night transition either. That said Will and I had planned an event for September using the Acura but we were going to wait till closer to the release of iRacing 2.0 to confirm...oh well.

    I think a race like that would be wicked to have the Acura, Riley, Vette running an endurance race.

    ok ok, then how about Acura, Vette, and Mustang... I think 4 different cars may be a bit to much...

    Kevin and myself were waiting to make sure the Acura was confirmed before announcing this as we have been scheduling future RDiR events already. Woke up this morning and read the newsletter. Good news for RD iRacers.

    You can only have 3 classes in hosted racing so to me the obvious choices are the Acura and Riley and then a choice of the Corvette/GT40/Radical/Mustang

    I think a lot would depend on the relative speed capabilities of the Acura vs. the Riley and of the 'Vette vs. the GT 40 vs the Radical. Would like to see one pair that is very closely matched. If none are reasonably matched, then widest separation I would think, with probably the LMS car at the top and the Mustang at the bottom, with one of the others between.

    LMS/Vette/Mustang
    LMS/GT40/Stang

    Or

    LMS/Vette-GT40/Stang
    I'm sure Vette n GT40 will be closely matched. Stang is all on its own as I dont see any other car even close to its performance.

    Nothing to announce yet officially except that we are working on a brand new series to serve the needs of all you endurance fans out there that love to race for 6, 8, 12 or 24 hours with your team mates in a mixed field with the best simracers and simracing teams out there.

    Stay tuned for more but lets start the discussion already! Just as excited as we are?
