Driver/Team notes:
  • Each car can have 1-4 drivers (Driver Swap Tutorial)
  • Premium members get priority when signing up
  • Cars with multiple drivers get priority over cars with a single driver
  • The ratio of GTE to LMP1 will be 2:1 (minimum of 10 LMP1 cars)
  • Drivers/teams with known racing experience will get priority to race in LMP1
  • LMPs must have their headlights on at all times (additional flashing is encouraged)
  • Blue flag: Signals a faster car is behind you. Caution is required, but moving over is not.
  • The faster car is expected to look for a sensible passing opportunity. They are responsible for initiating a safe pass. Straights are preferred over corners. Corner exits are preferred over corner entries.
  • Slower cars are expected to keep to their racing line and cooperate with safe passes. Moving out of the way is not advised, as it leads to unpredictable situations.
  • Faster cars may flash their headlights to indicate that they are about to make a pass.
  • Patience is key!
Race information:
  • Remember to test pit-stops and driver swaps (Driver Swap Tutorial)
  • Ensure that all drivers in the team have driven some laps in traffic, and different track conditions
  • Whilst not racing or preparing for a driver swap, drivers are not permitted to be on the server; timing software will be provided so that team members are able to monitor the race
  • Presence on TS is not mandatory, but is recommended in case communication with drivers or teams is required
Start procedure:
  • Manual formation lap (single file) + rolling start
  • Game is set to standing start => clock will already be ticking when we do the formation lap
  • The speed of the formation lap will be dictated by the pace car
  • When the pace car pulls in the leader will dictate the pace
  • No overtaking before the start/finish line
  • Note: The pace car will slow down on the final straight before the pit straight (map will be provided soon), so everyone has a chance to close up on the pack - no need to drive too close to other cars before that section!

How to sign up:
  • State which class you want to race in, and name all drivers for your car

You made my day :)
I would like, if we could get rid of ABS especially in the LMP1 cars, but anyway I am in with a Lola.
I think I will drive this one alone as I want to test driving it 2 hours straight.


RedShift Racing
ABS is off now :thumbsup:

@Rolf Just The Lola and the R18 don't have similiar pace, so we would effectively end up with 3 different classes, which might spread the field a little too much.
