    What is This? How Does it Work?
    Check out all the details on our first Online LAN event here. We've been running Gr. 4 cars in online and TT for a couple weeks, and now we are moving over to N200 Road cars on short tracks.

    For our second LAN event, we have picked out 6 N200 cars, and we will run them with the online BOP enabled. We are announcing 7 tracks that we may potentially use, and we will use only 6 of the 7 tracks.

    The track order will be random, and will vary across the 4 planned event days. And if you don't like one of the cars, you can certainly take a break from one of the races, but you can't use the same car twice.

    We are planning for this to be about a 2-2.5 hour event, with races of around 15 minutes on each track, and around a 5 minute break in between races. The races will be set with fuel burn and tire wear TBD, but settings will not force a pit stop for fuel.

    We will hold only one qualifying - One out lap and 2 hot laps prior to the first race. All subsequent races will have the grid order set by previous race result.

    Check out all the details in the thread below.

    Eligibility

    This WRS-Online event is open to GTP_WRS Registered members only. If you are not currently on the registry, join now by following the GTP_WRS Registration!

    Once Registered with WRS, Simply hit reply on the newest version of the Race Sheet and add your PSN name to the day(s) you would like to participate on.

    Registration
    Post in the thread and let me know the event(s) you would like to attend.

    Please post -
    • Registered PSN ID
    • Event Dates. You can pick the date or dates you want to run.
    I will track registrations in the post I reserved after the OP.

    Delaying or Restarting Race Start

    Once the race countdown timer has started, the race will only be restarted in these cases:

    • Multiple drivers report a black screen/hang, instead of the 3-2-1 countdown.
    • One or more drivers get disconnected before race-pace has begun ("GO" for grid-starts, end of formation lap for rolling starts).
    • Steward realizes there is a condition that would lead to an unfair or poor race experience.
    Once the race countdown timer has started, the race will explicitly NOT be restarted for:

    • Latecomers, even if you've registered
    • Driver realizes he picked the wrong car parts (ie, tires) or driving options (ie, Auto tranny)

    Lobbies
    -Lobbies will be open at least minutes before Qualifying starts for warm up/practice. I normally try for 1 hour.

    -Qualifying will consist of 1 out lap followed by 2 hot laps, prior to the first race. Once your hot laps are completed please stay on the track and park your car somewhere in the 2nd sector and off the track while everyone else completes their qualifying. Leaving the track may cause you to lose your place on the grid. If you go off the track or crash in qualifying, please be sure that when you do re enter the track that it is safe to do so, never re enter the track when there is any type of oncoming traffic.

    - After Qualifying has finished we will start the first race. The races will be about 15 minutes each, and about 2.5 hours total. Full Race Details are posted below.

    - Subsequent races (races 2-6) will have the grid order set based on previous race result. We want to keep things moving.

    Track Boundary Guidelines

    Drivers are expected to do their best to stay within track boundaries per the OLR. Mistakes happens over the course of a long race and the random off or two will be overlooked in most instances, but if a pattern of boundary abuse is observed penalties will be handed out which include 15 seconds for a "minor" pattern of abuse, 30 seconds for a "substantial" pattern of abuse, and a DQ for "complete disregard" of track boundaries. In cases where penalties may not impact the driver (e.g. DC), the penalty may be carried over to the next event and may be applied as a 5 (minor) or 10 (major) grid spot penalty.

    It's up to the admins' discretion exactly what qualifies as "minor", "substantial" or "complete disregard". Going outside the rumble by a centimeter isn't as serious as a car length wide excursions into the run off area. Factors such as dirty air and traffic also come into play. If you find yourself going wide then the next lap you're expected to slow down a bit more to make sure you stay within boundaries. If you make the same mistake multiple times and you want to avoid a penalty you can always self-penalize during the race by lifting for a very brief period upon returning to the track. Continuing to hammer the throttle after repeated boundary overruns may very well end with a post race penalty.

    General Guidelines:
    • Contact with walls should be avoided. Wall riding/bouncing to gain time will be penalized and/or can result in disqualification. This includes pit entry/exit.
    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track
    • Runoff areas are not part of the track.
    • If you overrun boundaries by accident, lift momentarily to make sure you don't gain any advantage.
    • Do not complete a pass that was made possible by going outside track boundaries.
    Track Specific Guidelines:
    • Same track limits as the Time Trial.

    Standard Clean OLR Rules Apply:
    • Unless otherwise specified, all rules from the original WRS event apply.
    • You are expected to drive clean at all times as if you are racing in the WRS. All participants are required to follow the GTPlanet Online Racing Rules & Guidelines.
    • Race Stewards (who are taking part in race, but will review the replay) reserve the right to kick out or invalidate the result of any driver from the Race Room for driving offensively. If you ignore any warnings from the stewards and are kicked out of the race room, you will not be allowed to participate in future events.
    • Contact with walls should be avoided. Wall riding/bouncing to gain time will be penalized and/or can result in disqualification.
    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track
    • Runoff areas are not part of the track including green painted concrete.
    • Limit your contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible
    • No hybrids
    • No cheating of any kind
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules
    • Passing and Blocking: Aggressive blocking is not permitted, but the driver in front has the right to choose his/her line and braking point and drivers behind should respect that line. Be especially careful when you are on older tires than the competition as the speed difference may be significant. These events are "for fun" so just play nice and take a conservative rather than an aggressive approach when possible.

    Rules Addendum for Track Selection, Scoring, and Car Selection Rules

    Track Selection
    • I will use a random number generator to select the first track, and each subsequent track.
    • I also will not use BB Raceway as the first track, due to the simplicity of the layout and inherent car advantages.
    • If BB is the first track generated, I will continue to generate new numbers until one of the other 6 tracks is selected.
    • Once the first track has been selected, each subsequent track will be chosen at random at the conclusion of each race.
    Scoring
    • We will keep score for fun, there are no prizes.
    • I will take a screen shot of the results following each race, and will save the replay.
    • I will score the events using the standard Formula 1 Scoring Rules.
    • That means the top 10 finishers will receive points, of the following values.
    • 25, 18, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2
    • Any remaining positions, as applicable, will not receive points.
    Car Selection
    • As mentioned in the opening section, there are 6 cars, and you must use each car once.
    • We will use 6 of the 7 tracks listed.
    • Drivers are responsible to keep track of which cars they have used.
    • Select a method IN ADVANCE to keep track of this.
    • That could be as simple as writing the 6 cars down on a piece of paper and crossing them off as you go.
    • If you use the same car twice, the HIGHEST finish in that car will be disqualified.
    • Once you have qualified for the first race in a specific car, you must use that car.
    • At each subsequent track, you will be asked to select your car as soon as the track loads.
    Race Start Procedure on Tracks 2-6
    • I will announce a track load time at the conclusion of the prior race, when announcing the next track.
    • You will typically have a 4-5 minute break.
    • If you are not there when the track loads and you miss a race, that's on you.
    • Grid order for races 2-6 will be based on last race finish, fastest first.
    • Practice laps are NOT allowed in races 2-6. Enter the pits, do not enter the track.
    • I will give a go on track signal once all racers are in the pits, we will drive to the first turn and await the race countdown timer.
    • As soon as all racers have made it to turn 1, the next race will begin.
    • You are expected to be ready and know these tracks. If you are not confident in a track, don't dive into turn 1 and hope for the best. Hang back and learn it behind others.

    Good Luck, OLR Team:gtplanet:

    I think that is actually my fault, and the car is indeed a Honda.

    There is no such thing as a Honda Integra here, they are all Acura. So I just called it that.

    I've updated the bottom of the OP with the signups.

    Please double check that I have you listed correctly.

    None of the days are full yet, but the Saturdays have proven popular again.
