    Ok... firstly - wow! That is one long list of cars. Not sure my friend can provide that much info, especially so close to the event but if I see him around I'll ask him for some regs.

    Secondly, this race actually clashes with another race I have on Sunday evening so it's unlikely I'll make it to this event. I will, though, still see about those regs for you if and when I get the chance.

    If he can't, then just have him provide regs for each subcategory in each class - for instance, some regs for SuperGT cars, some for DTM, some for FIA GT1 and so on. That should make it easier as most cars in each class are on equal footing anyway.

    Awesome! That frees me up to broadcast it. Want to hop online in a few minutes so I can help you practice driving the safety car?

    Sure thing! Should I tune it or leave it stock?

    Stock would probably be better. There's less chance of crashing it that way, and since the field would have to slow down for you anyway there would really be no point.

    True. Added brakes, rear wing, RH tires, and a center diff for drivabilty, no power mods. I'm on right now if you wanna make a room.

    OK. :)
    Do you have a mic, by the way? That would be better than just entering "the safety car is out" in the chat box.

    Practice is tomorrow at 12:30pm EST, and it lasts for 30 minutes. After that, there will be a 15-minite break, followed by 30 minutes of quali and another 15-minute break before the race. So the race would start at 2:00pm. :)

    The room is up. I can't find the number, so just look for "1000km Sierra Pace Car Practice."

    Anyone else is allowed to join if they want to get a bit more tuning done ahead of the race.

    General announcement: Since the "Road-going sports car" option in the poll seems to be gaining traction, I'm just going to say that we'll be racing GT cars since everyone probably already has their setups done or they're still working on them. It would be unfair at this stage to go and change over to a different category of car when everyone would have to start from scratch.

    Hey guys, I wonder if I could take part in this race, I saw this thread about a month ago an and I've been interested into taking part in a 1000km race, but haven't had an opportunity to do so until now. I got one question though. Is the Honda HSV base model allowed? I didn't see it on the car list.

    @gurizzi @PNuTButR @Piotr Jawniak @PHO3NIX_F1RE @bscar27 @aboe @OriginalCheezIt @Wardez @M0NSTER97

    Read this closely. These are the final regulations for the race.

    First I want to kick things off with how we're going to reign in Super GT cars so the other cars in each class have a chance. Super GT cars will be limited to 480 horsepower (GT1)/280 horsepower (GT3) and must carry 200kg of ballast, though the ballast may be located wherever the driver sees fit. As a reminder, the Lamborghini NOMAD Diablo '00 will be subject to Super GT regulations.

    With that said, here are the rules from the OP as a refresher.

    Rules

    Settings

    • Time set to 1, with an in-game start time of 12:00
    • Fuel usage and tire wear set to realistic
    • Mechanical damage set to heavy
    • Visual damage set to on
    • All assists set to off
    • Tuning will be allowed
    Start times
    • Practice: 12:30pm EST (30 mins), Sept. 21 (Sunday)
    • Qualifying: 1:15pm (30 mins)
    • Race: 2:00pm
    Rules

    • All drivers are requested to drive cleanly. While competitors are free to bump and rub each other within reason, intentionally wrecking another driver or behaving in a dangerous manner will result in a kick and exclusion from the race results.
    • Fields will be 14 cars instead of the usual 16, to allow for a safety car driver and a broadcaster
    • A practice session will be run two hours before the race, to allow you to familiarize yourself with the track and adjust your car
    • Thirty minutes after the practice session ends, a qualifying session will be run using the in-game system to determine grid spots
    • A safety car will be on hand to deploy if there's an accident involving two or more cars. When deployed, the safety car will wait for the other cars to cross the start/finish line (where it will be parked, and where the competitors are supposed to slow down) and catch them, controlling the field until those involved in the accident have had an opportunity to pit for repairs and catch back up
    • The safety car will use the parking areas that are dotted along the track during cautions unless a full course caution is ABSOLUTELY necessary (for instance if there is a track-blocking accident and those involved are having a hard time setting off again). The way we will do this is we will allow any cars involved in the caution to have necessary repairs made and to be able to catch back up to us. Instead of going all the way around the course under caution, we will simply use a "sector caution" format where we will be under caution from the point that the field is back together, until we reach the next closest pull-off area at which point the pace car will pull off of the racing surface and we will resume competition. There are 5 pull offs along the entire track and they are after sector markers #7, 18, 32, 39, and 44.
    • If two or more drivers are involved in the same accident, they are asked to type "c" in the Chat box so the safety car driver will know to declare safety car conditions
    • One-car accidents will not result in a safety car unless the car is damaged to the point that it becomes a danger to other racers or it is disabled (see "Extenuating circumstances in which the safety car will be deployed")
    • Using chat programs outside of the game's chat function (Teamspeak or Skype, for instance), is allowed to allow teams to come up with interesting strategies and make the race a bit more exciting for all involved.
    Extenuating circumstances in which the safety car will be deployed
    The safety car will also be deployed in the following circumstances.
    • A car has been so badly damaged that the driver feels they cannot safely continue on without causing another accident or crashing again themselves. If this is the case, the affected driver should type "damage" in the chat box
    • A real-world control failure (for instance, loss of throttle, braking or steering input) has left a car disabled in a dangerous spot. If this happens, the driver should type "failure." Upon reaching the disabled car, the safety car will push the disabled car to a safe spot so the driver can fix whatever issue they're having with their controls.
    I want to stress in particular that if you are in an accident, you MUST type either "c" for a crash, "damage" if your car is damaged so badly that it becomes a danger, or "failure" in case of a real-world control failure. If you don't do that, there's no way for @OriginalCheezIt to know that he's supposed to deploy the safety car.

    Yes, I'm going to be streaming it. GTChannel will also have a small advertising campaign up for it, and it's going to be on GT Wikia as well.
