    On Sunday 17th of May I want to see if I can make a race simulating a 24 hour day / night cycle on the Dubai Autodrome Circuit, GP layout.

    Any member
    interested can sign up for this event, so come join US and lets have some fun! I'll be hosting the server, I just hope I've paid the internet bills correctly hahaha!

    Unlike the RaceDepartment events, I don't have a sweepstakes or a prize to give! Sorry folks! :) (In the meanwhile, of course. I'm a heartwarming guy.)

    LMP1, LMP2 and GT3 cars.

    Dubai Autodrome, GP Layout.

    Practice: 18:00 GMT (60 minutes)
    Qualifying: 19:00 GMT (15 minutes)
    Race: 19:15 GMT (+/- 60 minutes)


    • The server will most likely not show up for everyone by default.
    • Once you are in the lobby go to the filter on the right side of your screen and type: RDRaceClub for the server name to find it
    • Make sure to map a button for your headlights!!
    • While on track we noticed some issues with the d-box of the cars. Don't slipstream into your opponents gearbox as that will unsettle their cars. Keep some safe distance while racing.

    The issues are game related so unless things get patched up there is a big chance they keep happening :)

    Yeah, that's true. Hopefully the devs are aware of the problems and won't keep us waiting too long for a fix :)

    Done folks, registered to your specific vehicles.
  9. It won't be Mother's Day so I will definitely be there:
    #86 ERAD Racing RUF RGT8 GT3

    Couple questions:
    1. Standing start? Or rolling start with a formation lap?
    2. Race settings - will there be specific requirements like cockpit view or mandatory pit stops, etc.?

    Or is this just a test race and I should just relax?;)

    Hey Snappy, about those questions:
    1 - Standing start, we are emulating the WEC racing rules. So expect standing start.
    2 - Race settings: I'll leave it open all cameras and no mandatory pit stop. But I'll believe it will be necessary due to racing damage or tyre wear. The pitstop system in the game is complicated, so it's better to set some pit stop settings already. Gear will be set to manual and the racing aids will be factory spec, so if your GT3 vehicle has an ABS system, it will be there.

    And this is a test race, we are doing this for fun, pure enjoyment. Relax and have fun!

    Just a thought:
    Is it not possible (and useful) to run a RD practice server for a couple of hours before the official launch of the race say from 15:00 pm GMT to 17:30 GMT - this gives us time to test and also check that we can join server etc and basically help state-of-readiness for each race

    I'd like to participate please, can i take one of the: McLaren 12C GT3

    This will be my first race event via Race Department forums, quite ironic its not an official one. ;)
  17. Good to know...thank you. This will be fun. :D

    Sad to hear that live driver swaps may not ever be possible due to the console limitations.:( So much for next gen consoles.

    Registered bro. All members allowed, incluiding non premiums. :thumbsup:

    @Peevee88 I might not be able to host it by then, I'll have to confirm only saturday, I might have to attend something by then and then comeback about a hour before or so of our practice kickoff time.
    If I can't get it open by mid day GMT, I suggest doing training laps in a practice session and prepare some pitstop strategies, in case if it is needed.
