    Introduction

    Welcome to the RaceDepartment iRacing Le Mans Series - 2012 Summer Tour. In anticipation of team and driver swap features we've decided to host a season of five two-hour races to warm you up for the real endurance events that we hope to organise in iRacing later this year.

The order of qualification is: HPD ARX-01c (0-10m), Chevrolet Corvette C6.r (10-20m) and Ford GT (20-30m).

    Briefing

    Regulations. First of all, please make sure you have read the RaceDepartment League Regulations. The document is ready for revision, but the important parts are still valid.

    There are some rules of fist for the on track conduct. Some of it is already in the RD League Regulation, some of it might vary depending on the situation. Whatever the situation, this must be your initial approach:

    Faster Cars
    • You have the responsibility for picking the right moment to initiate a safe pass... and safe it must be!
    • Try to initiate passes coming on the the straights, rather than in a corner or on corner entry.
    • If you must pass at corner entry, make sure you are well alongside (at least 50%) before the turn-in point of the slower car. Do not try to pass inside when the slower car already turns in.
    • Try to pass through places the slower car will not go, which generally means going off the prefered line.
    • If you feel you might not get there in time, pick a line early, keep some reserves (prepare to brake) and see how the slower car responds. Perhaps the slower car will cooperate, but if he does not, you must pull out.
    • Accept the fact that you will lose time behind slower cars. Every faster car has this problem.
    Slower Cars
    • Generally you must simply keep to the racing line and await the passes of the slower cars. This is the preferable method, because it makes you predictable. After all, everyone knows the prefered line.
    • When you pick a line, try to stick with it through a straight or corner. Changing lines right in front of someone might lead to accidents.
    • Cooperate with safe passes. Don't make it hard for the faster cars. Remember, the faster they pass you, the less time you lose being passed.
    • If you get passed, try to be clear before you turn in. Perhaps you must brake a little earlier, but that's a small price to pay for not having to go two-wide into a corner.
    • Accept the fact that getting passed might lose you time. It's a fact of life in endurance racing. Nothing you can do about it but try to speed up the process by cooperating.
    Damage. When you crash, it is important to keep your head in the game. Brake the car to a stand still, check your F3 (Relative) and see whether or not you can return to the race line safely. Do not move if other cars are incoming!

    If you try to return the car to the pit driving, make sure you can do this safely. If you can't drive it in a more or less straight line without making all kinds of unexpected manoeuvres, you are advised to park your car off track and press escape for a tow. This is important to prevent crashes.

    Pitstops. When you are going to make a pitstop, please enter the apron going into Turn 9 and exit the apron coming out of Turn 2 when you leave the pitlane. This way we might prevent any bad crashes from happening with people coming on and off the apron at random places.

    Chat. Try to keep chatting to the minimum. Chat only if it's necessary of desirable. Not not go about venting your frustrations over text or voice chat. If you need to chat elaborately with a driver, make sure you use private chat. Type: /#00 (startnumber) and press enter. Note that any foul language might have consequences for your participation in future events.

    Incident reports

    If the regulations are breached during the event, an incident report can be filed. To do this, please send an e-mail to Yoeri Gijsen with the following information:
    • Names of the involved drivers (including your own)
    • Description of the incident (as objective as possible - leave your emotions aside)
    • A replay of the incident from at least 5 seconds before the incident until 5 seconds after (mind the size)
    Absences

    Every driver that signs up for the competition is expected to join its events. Anyone that does not enter an event without giving prior notice of his absence will be replaced by a driver from the waiting list.

    If you cannot participate please take the following steps:
    1. Start a conversation with Yoeri Gijsen and notify him at least 24 hours before the start of the race.
    2. Edit your sign-up info by setting it to 'Unavailable' at the Series & Sign-up page.

This is important to prevent crashes.

    Pitstops. The Endurance Pits layout has the long pitlane. You enter it in the middle of the former busstop chicane and exit it at Eau Rouge/Radillon. Driver on the track need to be aware of the dangerous pit exit and make sure people that exit the pits get sufficient room (marked by the white pit exit line) to make it safely back on track.

    Chat. Try to keep chatting to the minimum. Chat only if it's necessary of desirable. Do not go about venting your frustrations over text or voice chat. If you need to chat elaborately with a driver, make sure you use private chat. Type: /#00 (startnumber) and press enter. Note that any foul language might have consequences for your participation in future events.

    Broadcast

    This event will be our first broadcast with ETV. The race will be streamed live both on RaceDepartment and ETV. Please make sure you come prepared and behave like a gentleman. Let's make this series shine!

    Every driver is asked to come to the ETV TeamSpeak during or after the race. This way the commentators can interview you about your experiences. You will likely not be disturbed while driving, but a few questions during a pitstop or when you've crashed out or finished the race will make the broadcast that much more interesting and interactive.

    So join the ETV TeamSpeak at ts31.gameservers.com:9207.

    Qualification

    The qualifcation session has a lenght of 30 minutes in which each of the classes has the track for itself for 10 minutes, while staying in the pits during the other 20 minutes. Once the 10-minute mark is reached the drivers may complete their current lap and are to return to the pit right after (by tow or driving) without obstructing the class that starts qualification. The order of qualification is: HPD ARX-01c (0-10m), Chevrolet Corvette C6.r (10-20m) and Ford GT (20-30m).

    Briefing

    First of all, please make sure you have read the RaceDepartment League Regulations. The document is ready for revision, but the important parts are still valid.

    Secondly, 2 hours is a pretty long time to unfold your racing plans. No need to rush it in the early laps. Take your time to plan your passes and only execute them at the best opportunity. It's recommended not to force the issue.

    Thirdly, we're going to race with around 40 cars sharing the track. This means that all drivers are going to be in traffic for most of the time, especially later in the race. The only way that is going to work out is if all drivers drive with respect and patience.

    The faster drivers are expected to take the initiative in providing safe passes on slower cars. It is generally recommended to postpone corner passes to the exit of the corner. Passes can also be made under braking, but should only be begun if the faster car can get well alongside or past the slower car before the turn-in point of the corner (measured by that of the slower car), so that there can be no question about who has track position. It is advised that faster drivers show their intentions as soon as possible by picking lines.

    The slower drivers are expected to cooperate with these passes and must not try to block faster cars unnecessarily. It is recommended that the slower cars stick to their normal, preferred racing line or choose an alternative line well before the faster car gets close. Slower cars must refrain from making unexpected manoeuvres such as sudden line changes, braking way early and such.

    In general, faster drivers must find their way around slower drivers. Try not to go two-wide into a corner, but instead focus on being clear when you turn in.

    Finally, please do not use the text chat and use the voice chat only for necessary communications. Do not go about discussing incidents or frustrations elaborately until after the race. If you feel you have not been treated right by any driver during the race, please make an incident report(see below).

    Qualification

    The qualifcation session has a lenght of 30 minutes in which each of the classes has the track for itself for 10 minutes, while staying in the pits during the other 20 minutes. Once the 10-minute mark is reached the drivers may complete their current lap and are to return to the pit right after (by tow or driving) without obstructing the class that starts qualification.

    Briefing

    First of all, please make sure you have read the RaceDepartment League Regulations. The document is ready for revision, but the important parts are still valid.

    Secondly, 2 hours is a pretty long time to unfold your racing plans. No need to rush it in the early laps. Take your time to plan your passes and only execute them at the best opportunity. It's recommended not to force the issue.

    Thirdly, we're going to race with around 40 cars sharing the track. This means that all drivers are going to be in traffic for most of the time, especially later in the race. The only way that is going to work out is if all drivers drive with respect and patience.

    The faster drivers are expected to take the initiative in providing safe passes on slower cars. It is generally recommended to postpone corner passes to the exit of the corner. Passes can also be made under braking, but should only be begun if the faster car can get well alongside or past the slower car before the turn-in point of the corner (measured by that of the slower car), so that there can be no question about who has track position. It is advised that faster drivers show their intentions as soon as possible by picking lines.

    The slower drivers are expected to cooperate with these passes and must not try to block faster cars unnecessarily. It is recommended that the slower cars stick to their normal, preferred racing line or choose an alternative line well before the faster car gets close. Slower cars must refrain from making unexpected manoeuvres such as sudden line changes, braking way early and such.

    In general, faster drivers must find their way around slower drivers. Try not to go two-wide into a corner, but instead focus on being clear when you turn in.

    Finally, please do not use the text chat and use the voice chat only for necessary communications. Do not go about discussing incidents or frustrations elaborately until after the race. If you feel you have not been treated right by any driver during the race, please make an incident report(see below).

  10. Yoeri, you seem to be busy planning something and have put all these threads up with 2 hour races. I'm dying here, I need some info. You got me excited and then have left me hanging. What are you scheming?? i'm on to you :p

    I sure hope its on a weekend day :)
     
  11. iLeagueRace is a great tool for leagues! I am using it now and it's really great.

    You can make a alternative (and better) link, something like racedepartment.ileaguerace.com.
    At configuration > domain alias configuration.
    That way you can a direct link to everybody.

    I sure hope too.
     
  13. Which cars? :)
    The typical or thinking a little different? Hope you replace the Ford with the Caddy ;-)

    About the same speed, but much more fun to drive :)

    Hope to have more info this weekend as I leave on holiday for 14 days on monday :)
     
  14. I'd prefer the Ford over the Cadillac, because the Cadillac doesn't race in the ALMS/WEC. I'd go for realistic car choices every time.
     
  15. ah this sounds intresting :p ill be there waiting
     
  16. None of the cars are realistic at this moment ;-)
     
  17. But the HPD, Corvette and Ford GT have run together a couple years ago. The Cadillac never did.
     
  18. I know and I understand. But hey, can't blame a guy for trying :)
     
  19. Could we do the hpd, sr8, and a gt car? It wouldnt be official but could another proto style of car.
     
  20. at this point, why not hpd, riley and sr8 :) unrealistic but nice to see @ the broadcast^^
