    Steward's Notes:

    It has been too long since our last 2.4 hour enduro! Only now we are converting to a 2hr enduro simply because GTSport won't allow us to set 2h24m on a raceclock. So without further ado, the GTP_OLR team proudly presents...
    the WRS 2 Hour Fuji GT Mixed Class Enduro with two fantastic racing cars from Toyota.

    Whichever car you chose, it's pure fun that's on the menu!

    If you've never participated in one of these truly special events, get ready for a treat and check out the following promotional video put together by GTP_oink.

    Simulated Driver Change

    [​IMG]
    There will be 2 mandated (simulated) driver change pitstops during the race which must take place one per hour. To simulate the change a driver will pause during a regular pit stop for 5 minutes. The time is free to choose for every single drivers' own will. It will throw some interesting dynamics into the race and it will also allow the participants to take a small break during the race for a stretch, drink or a real life pit stop during this challenging event.


    Specifics

    1. To begin the simulated driver change enter the pits as normal.
    2. To make sure your car stays in the pit you must not make the choice of tires yet while your car is driving through the pits to its' box.
    3. This way your car will stay stationary and the crew will not start working on the tire change.
    4. As soon as the car is stopped, the counter for pit duration starts. This is your 5min timer.
    5. After that timer has hit 5:00min you can select the tire type and continue your pitstop and your race.
    Driver Change Verification and Infractions

    • All drivers will have to make screenshots from their 5min pitstops and post them in the thread afterwards for verification.
    • If you do not serve the total 5 minutes a double time penalty will be applied to your finish time. e.g. if you serve only 4 minutes then 2 minutes will be added to your finish time.
    • If you accidentally leave the pits early you can avoid a penalty by returning to the pits and serving all of the remaining time on the *very next* lap.
    • Any driver that doesn't attempt a proper driver change will be DQ'd and removed from the official results.
    Qualifying

    Drivers can attempt to qualify for either class (or both). The top qualifying drivers from each class will participate in the "A" race. Drivers who do not make the cutoff will serve as reserves for "A" and participate in a "B" race (assuming there are enough drivers to race in a second lounge). The Gr. 3 qualifying deadline is earlier so organizers can "lock down" the Gr. 3 class for race "A". Drivers that do not qualify for room "A" in the Gr. 3 class can attempt to qualify for room "A" in the Gr. 4 class. If space is available in the Gr. 3 class after the Gr. 3 deadline additional drivers can qualify, but cannot displace any drivers that qualified before the deadline and will not be able to qualify for room A.

    Qualifying will take place during the two weeks prior to the race event (see windows below). Standard WRS track rules are in effect during these Qualifying hotlaps and any infractions will be penalized a minimum of 2 seconds per incident unless it is beyond a reasonable doubt that the "infraction" had a negative impact on the lap time. Each driver can attempt qualifying for a class only once (one shot per class).


    Qualifying Procedure

    1. Set up your game like you would run in one of our Time Trials. "Hotlap Event in Arcade Mode Time Trial"
    2. Save Your BEST LAP replay
    3. You need to make sure you use the 'Save Best Lap Replay' (ghost replay), not the 'Save Replay' (See pic below).
    4. Before saving your replay ensure that you continue running after completing your fast lap until at least the end of first sector. This will ensure you have a complete replay.
    5. When saving your fastest lap replay please ensure that you watch the replay to the end, see that it's clean and that it displays your full lap time. Any replays submitted that do not show the complete laptime at the end of the replay will get Disqualified.
    [​IMG]

    Sharing Your Replay

    • Share your replay before deadline
    • Go to Your Library, locate your Submitted Best Lap Replay, and share it using the in game menu features.
    • Be sure to share your replay PUBLICLY for verification, so that any steward may find it.
    • When sharing your replay, please use the following share tags to make your replay easy for stewards to locate
      • gtpwrsfuji, 2hrenduro, toyota's
    Miscellaneous

    • Any disagreement over infractions will be handled via replay review.
    Qualifying Windows

    • Gr. 3: October 15 - October 25
    • Gr. 4: October 15 - October 26
    [​IMG]

    Finalizing Your Class

    All drivers who have attempted to qualify for the Gr. 3 class must state their class intentions by Saturday October 27th - 4:59 PM Pacific | 7:59 PM Eastern | 23:59 GMT Check Local. There are three options:

    1. Commit to Gr. 3. Gr. 4 qualifying not required and any existing Gr. 4 qualifying times will be disregarded.
    2. Commit to Gr. 4. Gr. 4 qualifying required, Gr. 3 qualifying disregarded.
    3. Reserve Gr. 3. Gr. 4 qualifying required, Gr. 3 qualifying "reserved" pending Gr. 3 result, but driver will not be able to qualify for Gr. 3 room A.
    Multiple Lounges and Guaranteed Spots on the Grid:

    • Two lounges will be run for the enduro only if the number of confirmed drivers on race day is at least 20.
    • If there are 17-19 confirmed drivers, a few will have to go on "stand by" and may not be able to race in the enduro. Note that all drivers will have the opportunity to participate in the support races.
    • No more than two lounges will be run for the enduro so the limit is 32 drivers. Fastest in each class will make the A room. The next fastest will make the B room and others will go on reserve. All drivers will get an opportunity to run in the support races.

    Mixed Class Racing Rules

    Both classes must share the road and show some courtesy to the other class!

    Gr. 3 Class Ground Rules:
    • Be Patient: Your job is to get around the Gr. 4 class responsibly. Do not dive bomb a Gr. 4 class car under braking putting them in jeopardy if you make a mistake. Understand where you car holds the advantage and utilize those areas to execute passes safely.
    • Have good situational awareness. If Gr. 4 class drivers you are approaching are engaged in close battles don't expect them to stop their battle and let you go by. You may have to slow and pick your passing lines carefully. You may lose a gap you've built over a competing Gr. 3 driver, but that's the nature of multi-class racing. Everyone has a right to the road and everyone is going to get stuck behind a slower car at some point in the race.
    Gr. 4 Class Ground Rules:

    • Be predictable. Pick your line and and hold it. Don't suddenly change your line thinking it will allow faster cars to pass. You will just surprise them and mess up any plan they've already made to get around you. If you are taking a corner on the inside hold that line on exit and allow the Gr. 3 car to pass on the outside. If you are on an outside line in a corner, maintain that line on exit.
    • Have good situation awareness. Understand which cars and how many are around you. Is there one Gr. 3 class car attempting to pass or a pack of them. Where do the Gr. 3 cars have a big advantage over you (straight, under braking, mid corner).
    • Do not block: Gr. 4 drivers do not have to move aside for an approaching Gr. 3 car, but they are not allowed to "block" or interfere with an Gr. 3 car trying to pass.
    Remember every driver has their own style and approach to the course. You should take advantage of practices and support races to get to know your competitors and their driving styles and their skill level regardless of which class they are racing. Some drivers have more car control than others, some are more comfortable maintaining close proximity to other cars and some may back off with other cars around.

    This event is for fun and drivers of all skill levels are welcome. If you have a problem with that then this probably isn't the event for you. Unintentional mistakes are going to happen, but this is a very long race and you have plenty of time to recover (light damage). However, at the same time, all drivers are expected to drive at a pace in which they can consistently control their car and not jeopardize other drivers. Do not drive faster than your ability to control the car. If during practices and races you are not able to consistently control your car you may be removed from the race and/or demoted to a lower race class at the stewards discretion.


    • Safe Pit Entry: Drivers must keep all four tires within the white lines on pit road entry and must avoid contact with walls. There is no specific speed limit on entry, but the driver may need to slow significantly in order to stay within the boundaries and avoid wall contact. If the boundaries are crossed or wall contact is made the driver can avoid penalty by lifting off the throttle completely for 2 seconds after the car is released from the pits to "self-penalize" otherwise a 10 second penalty will be incurred after the race.
      [​IMG]
    • Safe Pit Exit: As always, when exiting pit road the driver is responsible for a safe entry onto the racing line and must "yield" to oncoming traffic. Any incident resulting from an unsafe exit will result in a drive through penalty (30 secs) for the driver exiting the pits.

    Important notes for the Support races. (note: the two formation laps and Gr. 4 getting a head start will NOT apply to the Enduro on Sunday)

    Details:
    1. The races will be set to 30+1 laps for Gr. 3, 29+2 laps for Gr. 4
    2. The formation lap speed limit is 75 mph / 125 kph and a staggered two wide formation will be used.
    3. There will be 2 formation laps for Gr. 4 drivers and 1 formation lap for Gr. 3 drivers.
    4. The target start for the Gr. 3 class is when the Gr. 4 field reaches the Dunlop turn in Sector 3.

    Important Notes:

    • The lounge will be open about 1 hour before the race begins -- watch thread for announcement.
    • Be on time (at least 5 minutes early, but preferably 15).
    • Regulation checks will begin promptly at race start time.
    • No tire warming procedures allowed during formation laps.
    Regulation Checks:
    All drivers should be in the lounge at least 5 minutes before the race start time. We will begin reviewing these rules at that time. Once the steward begins to speak or type out the instructions please refrain from using the text or voice chat unless you have an important question.

    At the race start time we will begin regulation checks. You will be called by name to enter the lounge with the Gr. 4 drivers entering first in starting order and then Gr. 3 cars after regs are updated. Do not enter the course until your name is called and do not exit to the lobby once you are entered.

    Stay in the pits until the system places you on the starting grid and then we'll begin the formation lap procedures above.

    Formation Laps:

    The Gr. 4 cars will leave the grid in order of qualifying and run a fast, but safe single file lap to lap the Gr. 3 cars. The goal of this lap is just to get around fairly quickly and reform for formation Lap 2. At the same time the Gr. 3 class will allow the Gr. 4 class to clear the grid and then leave the grid and on the run-off outside of turn 1.

    The Gr. 4 class will finish lap 1, pass the parked Gr. 3 cars and start lap 2 of their formation lap. The Gr. 4 class should proceed on formation lap 2 at 75 mph/125 kph. The Gr. 3 class will wait until the Gr. 4 are all clear of the T2 marker and then begin to form up in qualifying order and begin their own formation lap at 75 mph/125 kph. The faster class should maintain about a 2 sector gap to the slower class for most of the formation lap. The pole car from each class is responsible for setting a steady pace while allowing the group to keep together.

    The slower class will begin the race at the start/finish line after their 2nd formation lap. The target start line is the official timing line and the lead car should make sure after the final turn that all cars have formed behind and closed the gap before the group approaches the start. At that point it's up to the lead car to accelerate to start the race and all other cars can speed up when the car in front of them does so.

    The faster class cars will follow the same procedure and starting point, but the goal will be to time their start at the start finish line so that the lead car from the slower class is at the apex of the Dunlop turn in Sector 3 when the faster class accelerates to race pace. That should give the Gr. 4 cars a good head start.

    The final formation laps should be taken in staggered formation. The lead car will take the left side of the track. The second car should take to the right side of the track and alternate all the way back. This helps keep a tighter pack while maintaining better visibility versus single file. Cars should not "overlap" with the car in front of them. No passing before the start/finish line.

    Finish:

    Between the extra formation lap and pit pause difference the two classes should finish the race at approximately the same time. I'm not sure who will actually finish first, but all cars should have a fair chance to complete the race before the timer expires.

    @hirnsauger69 Guido, I've seen your Online database submission. :tup: You didn't really need to do that because you're already racing with us for a long time now. You are free to go sign up for the races you want to attend with clicking the 'register here' like in the usual weekly races.
    It is good to see people still read the instructions though. :tup:

    Hi Mike,

    I create the liveries for Larry #59 and me #69 for some weeks now. Larry had the idea to form a racing team.
    He is a big fan of the Lord of the Rings book and movies. Gondor is a fictional kingdom in J.R.R. Tolkien's writings and so the team was born.

    :cheers:

    I already think I know what you did even without looking. :lol:
    The registry needs to be updated in the online database doc. Not the event doc. ;)

    Edit.
    I can't seem to fix it on my phone so will have to have a look when I get to my laptop.

    Edit 2.
    Fixed it

    Tnx guys. Since Croatia can't be represented in FIA events, at least I will try to represent it here :)
