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 I feel is the most fit for the event :)

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

It breaks my heart to say it, but I can't make this one because I'll be out of town that day. A 4 hour race too! The longer the race, the better chance I have of winning!

Good luck everyone, and I hope the replay gets posted somewhere afterwards or a video summary so I can watch some of the race.
