Please read:
  • Click here to read the password and golden rules!
  • It is a VERY long endurance event. If you tend to leave an event after a minor crash, you should NOT sign up. It is for the hardcore enduro guys who can manage with the occasional "you have a suspension problem" message.
  • The event will have a broadcast as well as live timings
  • In case if we get a lot of sign ups, I will give priority to whoever finished the Nordschleife 500K:)

We will start the race with all the participants. If you drop during warmup or while getting on the grid we WILL restart the race. We might need to do a parade lap to make sure everyone has the proper gird position (I will take care of all book keeping)

Manual Rolling Start Procedure

Please read closely.
  1. Every driver places himself on the grid as usual and waits for the red starting lights to go on and off. When the lights go off the formation lap starts; not the race!
  2. The leader starts the formation lap first and then every car simply follows him one by one.
  3. The formation lap is driven in a single line.
  4. The leader will keep the formation lap at around ~100km/h
  5. The race starts when the leader enters the final turn
  6. No passing is allowed before the start/finish line!!
  7. If you spin or go off track, you wait for the whole field to pass and rejoin at the back of the line.
  8. Sudden stops, brake tests and excessive swaying are forbidden during the formation lap

4 spots remaining. The rest will go onto the reserve list.

Why we use only 25 slots? :( Please can we use another mod for the server to allow us more cars on the grid? It is more interesting with more cars,but not too many like 35 because you see what happened.I think 30 cars will be great. :) Anyway i am thinking to race even it will be 25 or 30 cars.The andurance race still a very nice and fun event no matter how many cars are in the race. :)

Why we use only 25 slots? ...
Eric, what have you done with the Mod? Do we ever see it again?
Guys, the mod doesn't work with addon tracks. So he can't use it again.
Yes, for now we can't risk having something like what happened last Saturday, it was an ugly scenario for everyone especially to those who putted much effort into it (both sides).

It was a freak occurrence, the tool was "tested" by 2 other clubs in more than 4 events and no major problems were reported... but it seems those events were held at official tracks.

Personal I think we (at RD) should definitely give it a 2nd go in a popular (Race07 only) club sprint event perhaps after the summer (more people, especially with race-on in its way).
