    Welcome drivers to a Multi Class event with LMP's and GT2/E's. There will be a Mandatory Pitstop between 10 and 50 minutes. The field will be limited to 24 drivers max. Please see 2nd post for drivers brief. The Porsche 919 (LMP) is way to fast to use with the other two LMP class cars, however it will be used on its own, on alternate weeks.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ALL DRIVERS: PLEASE READ AND ENSURE THAT YOU ARE FULLY AWARE OF THE ADDITIONAL RULES THAT APPLY TO ALL MULTICLASS EVENTS

    Multiclass
    A minimum of six (6) drivers are required before the LMP class will become official. If we have less than six (6) drivers sign up for the LMP class, the class (LMP) will be removed from the event, a day prior to the event taking place. If there are any GTE slots still available, you will be placed in that class (GTE) Should you not want to drive GTE? then please make a post is this thread to that effect.

    LMP drivers must ALWAYS drive with your lights on, you are allowed to also flash your lights, if you feel the situation ahead requires this. GTE drivers are not allowed to use your lights in anyway, this also includes "flashing" this rule, will help identify the class of car that may be behind you.

    Please Note
    The rule above will only be applicable if it does not become dark during the race. When it is dark ALL drivers must use their headlights, regardless of the class in which they are driving, but GTE drivers are still not permitted to flash their headlights.

    Overtaking / Lapping
    LMP drivers are predominantly responsible for ensuring that a pass is completed safely and successfully. The only requirement of GTE drivers is that they remain on the racing line when shown the blue flag and being overtaken; they should always behave predictably. Meanwhile, the LMP drivers are expected to safely find a way around GTE drivers without forcing them off their line. Headlights should only be flashed to indicate presence, and be used sparingly. And finally, LMP drivers should only initiate an overtake against a GTE car where appropriate and when it is safe to do so.

    Drivers ..This is a personal recommendation and not a rule - LMP cars should only be driven by experienced drivers, due to the extra responsibilities involved.

    The Bop settings were came about by 4-5 drivers over a period of testing (Lap times) for 6 days ...All the GTE cars were thoroughly tested again and again and again ..this was done well over 12 months ago. Welcome aboard Robert :thumbsup: PS ..GTE or LMP ?

    Monday has to remain, because I am almost certain that ACC, will take most of our customers, if not now, it will shortly, it is a great sim. With regards to time, it makes no difference to me, but it is an EU event. You get in from work, have dinner, then you want to spend some time with your kids and Wife, before the kids bedtime. This is why we set a time of 8pm ...but like I said, if the majority want it one hour earlier? it is fine with me.

    Yeah I know, 8pm is a perfect time, but in Germany it's 9pm already:unsure: As many drivers are from UK (I suppose) this time probably won't change :( as I also understand that 7pm could be too early for you guys overseas :p

    Multiclass race! Another new experience for me. For now I think the 458 please but I will try out the other GT/E's. Is the practice server running with the restrictor and weight settings?
