    A Scary Rx


    Specs as in Event 10 modified for the Saturday Attack Format

    [​IMG]

    :: Only Open to Qualified GTP_Registered Members ::

    :: Members are not obligated to take part ::




    April 5, 2014

    3:00 PM Eastern | 12:00 PM Pacific | 19:00 GMT | World Clock

    Qualifying will begin promptly at the time above and the session will last exactly 15 minutes at which point the race countdown timer will be started. Watch this thread for a notification post when the lounge is open for Saturday Attack.



    Mazda RX-7 efini Type R (FD) '91 @ Ascari Race Resort

    Qualification Procedures
    • Type: Live Single Stint Pre-Race Qualifying
    • Setup: The lap times will be reset by changing tracks (and back) 5 minutes prior to the qualification session.
    • Length: 15 minutes. Run as many laps as you desire during the time, however tire changes are NOT allowed which should put a cap on the effective number of laps. The race countdown timer will start at exactly 15:00.000 minutes on the track clock by a steward. Drivers can attempt to finish hot laps until the timer expires. It is our understanding that any laps completed prior to 10 seconds on the timer will count, but those completed at the last seconds of the timer will be ignored by the system.
    • Pits: Closed for service. You should park in pits manually or via start/exit when you are finished running hot laps, but you cannot change tires and return to track. You can also park/ghost on track if you can get sufficiently away from the racing line.
    • Groups: Track is open to all drivers during the session. Drafting is not allowed so space out appropriately or dip out of draft if closing in on someone. When exiting pits be sure to wait for a sufficient gap and stop if necessary to allow drivers on track to pass without interference.
    • Notes: Drivers arriving late can join the quali session at any time during the session. Drivers that do not have time to run at least one hot lap will start in the back. If you exit to the lobby after running a hot lap your times will be reset so stay on the track or in the pits. If a driver DCs during the session they will lose their best lap, however they can rejoin and run another lap (time permitting) or rejoin and start in the back.
    • Corrections: None! Whatever grid order the system gives us will be official... no restarts or formation laps. The second race is reverse grid with gaps so there is some amount of correction built in if you start further back than you should. This is unofficial and just for fun so just go with it!

    *If the size of the grid is large relative to the size of the track split qualifying (2 groups) will be utilized instead with 2 hot laps allowed per driver. Group 1 driver should remain on track to keep their times registered with the system, but must ghost off the racing line and wait for group 2 while they qualify.

    Basic Settings

    • Room Privacy: Public

    • Weather Changeability: Fixed
    • Surface Water at Race Start: 0%
    • Time: TBD
    • Time Progression: TBD
    Qualification Procedures
    • Type: Live Online Single Stint - No pits
    • Length: 15 min
    • Groups: Group qualifying will be used if the grid size is large enough to warrant in order to avoid traffic during qualification.
    • Notes: Drivers not in the lounge by the time the first driver has entered the track after reset will not be allowed to qualify. They are welcome to join the race, but will start at the back of the grid. If we are running multiple qualification groups and the driver enters before the last group has entered track an exception will be made.

    Attack Setup Basics

    • Run the first race, set to last approximately 15 minutes, and finish normally and record gaps.
    • Run reverse grid on 2nd race, but have drivers stay on grid for some % of the gap. i.e. if you finished first and the last car was 30 seconds behind you would have to remain parked for 27 seconds (90% of 30).
    • Reverse grid with a bit of a twist.
    • A two race "finish" system will be used to discourage any driver from lowering the gap of the first race. E.g. The overall event winner is the driver with the lowest "total" time across both races.
    • Add a bonus for positions. e.g. Podiumfinishers get 6, 3 and 1 bonuspoint. Meaning 6, 3 or 1 second will be substracted from your total racetime.

    Timings

    The lounge will be available after the Academy is completed around 20:00 GMT* and the first Attack Format Race will start around 20:30 GMT. Watch this thread for a post when the lounge is open. Please do not arrive before 20:00 GMT or before the post is made as it may interrupt the Academy race.

    (*)Timings are subject to daylight saving time changes.

    Specs

    The specs for the races will be exactly the same as the previous WRS-OE/3D3 race of that particular week.

    Results

    These races are unofficial, which means participation, podiums or wins will not be added to the official 3D3-stats.

    So if someone wanted to just race one night with any car or any race, say for example a Sunday night they would be able to post in here to organize it.

    I've also signed up for Saturday but only 50%.

    Registrationtable is reset for sign ups for next week in the 370Z. :)

    As we are doing Grid starts in these, how about using the False start check penalty?

    Is this with or without tuning? And is it me, i can't find anything about the power/weight or PP and tires.

    I personally don't want to mess up my academy car with motor stages or weight stages. I can alway use the last years academy car. Can dupe that one.

    Personally i prefer stock. Just like wednesday

    The exact specs like laps,PP are not known yet.We will here them in the next days but the pp stays close to stock.

    Also these Saturday races are with the specs of the big Wednesday race.
    No tuning.
    Just like you I like the cars to be stock so the guys have chosen a perfect combo to get back in the racing.

    Btw,

    Nice to see you Dan :)

    Thanks Sjaak

    Great. If the specs are the same as Wednesday, we don't have to put in extra time for practice. That would be nice. Otherwise as long the PP are close to stock, i can life with tuning. Only need a bit of luck with finding a tune on the net, that fits my driving style.

    I have last years car to give away, it's broken in.


    I just opened the main lounge for practice. So you can practice for wednesday or saturday

    I would need to get the DLC.. Is it still the same as SPA (as in).. You can get the track on multiple accounts? I also like the thought of no tuning :tup:

    Specs will always be the same on Saturday as they were on the Wednesday race.
    I think you only need to download the free family pack to share DLC across accounts on one PS3.

    As we are using grid start, how about using that 'False Start Check Penalty' here?

    We'll be doing 2 x 13 laps this evening.
    1 group quali (2 hotlaps) and grid start with false start check penalty.

    See you on track!
