The new V1.1 release may have brought some additional stability to the driver swaps! That is why we are taking the shot again, testing the driver swap format, this time on Spa-Francorchamps! Signup now with a teammate! (Or post here if you need one)

We support good hard racing and just ask you to respect track limits, basic racing etiquette and most importantly, each other.

If you need any help don't hesitate to ask on TeamSpeak... there's no such thing as a stupid question, and others will also benefit and learn something new :)

All premium members can sign up for this event and we have unlimited slots available so make sure to bring a friend (or a rival, whichever you prefer). Sign up below and make sure to tag fellow community members who you think are up for a challenge!

A New format? Please tell me more!
Ofcourse I will tell you more, don't worry. What we want to do is have a race with driver swaps, test if the game is ready to support new club events like this one. What we need to have a race with driver swaps, is you guys! :D
Basically you sign up as a team and you do this club race together as a team. During Practice you are free to let either driver do some laps, get a feeling of the track and car, work on the setup etc.
During Qualification, one of you will drive and determine the start position for the race. This driver will also start the race!
During the Race there is a Pit Window, during which you need to swap drivers! Your pitstop has to start between 25 and 35 minutes into the race. Here you will switch drivers with your co-pilot and now your race result is in his hands!

I AM EXCITED! HOW CAN I BE A PART OF THIS!?
Wowow now calm down, I understand the excitement. We prepared for you a sign-up sheet:
Team Name:
Driver 1: <Rd nick>
Driver 1 Steam64 ID:
Driver 2: <RD nick>
Driver 2 Steam64 ID:
Fill it in and you are in!

Steam64ID?
Yes, we need to tell the server which drivers belong together, otherwise it can't execute the driver swaps! You can find yours by googling something like "SteamID Finder" or "What is my Steam64 ID" and use one of the provided tools (make sure you never use a site that asks your steam password, it is not necessary to find the 64 ID). A steam64 ID is a numerical code that starts with 7656. And if you are concerned about posting that SteamID publicly, the alternative is sending me the ID in a PM ;)

Now that we got your three questions covered, it is time to cover the additional rules quickly:
  • A team consists of two drivers
  • A driver swap needs to start between 25 and 35 minutes. The start of your pitstop counts for this, so if you want to gamble you can plan your pitstop at 25:10 minutes left (just don't spin in pit entry). 35:10 minutes racing left is too early.
  • Not a rule, just a tip: Driver swapping already works in practice sessions. Make sure you've tested how it works before the race starts! ;)
  • Signing up is possible untill 2 hours before the start of the event! (17:00 UTC deadline!) This is to allow us to configure the server properly.
Disclaimer: The Driver Swap feature is not officially released and still in a beta phase. Therefore bugs may occur! If you are the unlucky one to encounter a bug, please send us your log files along with a brief description of what happened. We will bundle your reports and get in touch with Kunos.

I'd be in for that one! looking for a teammate again, preferably for the Ferrari but would also do the new Vantage V8 or Lambo. Don't have a setup for those though so my teammate would have to help me out here :)

Provisionally yes, I may be with or without a teammate depending on how things go with him. (sadly he has had to fly back to europe due to unforseen circumstances)

I still believe a swap event with only a handful teams is hurting RD.

Would have at least one full server of single drivers like the ones we used to have every Sundays with AC, before adventuring in such a format.

We need to know if the system is working properly for more people than just me and a few other staffies. Only way to do that is by using the club to experiment. Not ideal, but it is all for a good cause.
