    4.jpg The touring cars are finally back, and for their eleventh season we'll be putting the newly released Aussie Racing Cars through their paces!

    Up to 28 drivers from all over the world will compete in these micro-monsters for 12 rounds of intensely-close racing as only Touring Cars can provide! They may only produce a little over 100 horsepower, but the Aussie Racing Car's are minuscule. They're essentially a driver tightly wrapped in a roll cage with the shell of a Camaro over the top. But underestimate them at your own peril, as these things have a 1300cc motorbike engine in them, and since they weigh in at just under 600kg, the performance these little beasts provide is impressive!

    Whilst this league will be run on an Australian server during Australian-friendly times, all premium members of any region are welcome to sign up and compete in this series. If you wish to sign up, please do so in the Sign Up thread after reading the information below and the info in the Sign up thread.

    • Only communications from the league director will be allowed when it pertains to critical issues (i.e. Server problems).
      • During practice, in-game text chat is permitted, however please be respectful of others trying to concentrate.

    • You may sign up as either an independent, or as a team.
    • Maximum drivers per team: 2
    • If you cannot attend a particular round, you are permitted to find a substitute driver to take your place. However, they must have an active Premium Membership and they must be able to drive the car at a competitive pace so as to not present unnecessary danger to other drivers.
    • You must notify the league director of a substitute driver taking your place upon, or prior to, your notification of absence (see below).

    Absences
    • Absences are permitted provided you notify the league director within 24 hours of the commencement of the Practice session (20:00 AEST), and it is a valid reason.
    • Irrespective of excuse, late notifications of absence will result in an immediate 5 point deduction from your total points accumulation.

This includes immediate removal from any RaceDepartment league(s) they may be participating in at the same time as the RD Touring Car Championship.

    @Chris can you please confirm - is auto blip going to be allowed?
    It has never been disallowed in the past as it carries a weight penalty
     
  11. Chris

    Chris

    I'll do some testing tomorrow. If a weight penalty is in fact given, then yes it'll be allowed, but if there is no weight penalty, then it won't be allowed.

    How do we know which assists carry weight penalties and which ones don't?

    @Sniper
    It would seem that auto blip does add a weight penalty, but again, I'll do some running tomorrow to find out just how much of a difference it makes in laptime. It may give an unfair advantage even with the weight penalty.

    Hi @Chris, is it ok to sign up as a reserve driver if I'm not sure of my availability on race days? I didn't want to sign up earlier as I may have to miss many rounds, but would it be ok to sign up as a reserve and potentially miss a round even if a slot opened up for me?

    Yes that's fine :)

    Nice, thanks :)

    Also, am I able to submit a skin as a reserve driver? I'd like to but I understand if you don't want the skin pack too bloated.

    @Sniper
    Just done a few laps with Auto-blip turned ON, and I really can't tell that it does anything in this car? I downshift and it just spins out. Is there a way to actually get it to automatically blip the throttle when I downshift?
