    Simulated Driver Change

    driver-change.jpg
    There will be 1 mandated (simulated) driver change pitstops during the race which must take place between 30 and 90 minutes into the race. 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 stop 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). Qualifying will take place during the week 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).

    Qualification times will not be published until the qualification window closes. Drivers are allowed to share their own quali times via PM or other private communications and others can observe their runs with permission from the driver, but qualification lap times or any information that could be used to derive quali lap times should not be posted/discussed in the thread.

    Qualifying Race Procedure
    1. A race steward will set up the lounge to the proper specs for the class.
    2. The driver will be given an out lap and a single hot lap in free run for a final warm up if desired (Drivers should come to the session already warmed up and prepared).
    3. After the completion of the practice hot lap the race timer will be started.
    4. The qualifying steward and any other observers will monitor the race live to validate the run and save a replay in case of any protest.
    5. The qualifying races will consist of 5 laps: 1 un-timed out-lap + 3 timed hot-laps + 1 un-timed in-lap.
    6. When the driver finishes the final hot lap he should slow down and park on track before finishing the in-lap.
    7. Lap times and any infractions will be noted and announced by the steward. For this event the fastest hot lap must be verified offline via replay before the time is official.
    8. When the driver and steward are in agreement on the recorded net lap times the driver can drive on and cross the finish line
    Qualifying Time
    1. The driver's single best hot lap will determine his starting position on the grid.
    2. Any driver in either class that demonstrates in qualification or practice sessions that he cannot keep the car in control and on the track consistently or maintain a reasonable pace will not be allowed to participate in the enduro race. The stewards and event organizers will make that call if it is deemed necessary.
    Miscellaneous
    • Any disagreement over infractions will be handled via replay review.
    • If a driver disconnects before finishing his first hot lap he can return to re-run a qualifying race.
    • Any lap completed (and time noted by steward) prior to DC will be counted and the lap count reduced for the 2nd attempt.
    • A driver will not be allowed to rerun a qualification lap if he DCs after damage occurs to the car in the lap, but he can rerun subsequent laps.
    Qualifying Window
    • April 20 - April 25 4 AM GMT
    [​IMG]

    Rolling Starts By Class

    Gr.1 cars will leave the grid first and get into a staggered formation. Pole sitter on left side and alternating all the way back. Target speed is 62 mph / 100 kph. Gr.3 cars should form up the same way roughly 15 seconds behind. Both fields should close ranks after exiting the final corner on the formation lap. Maintain formation lap speed until the start/finish line when the pole sitter will accelerate to race pace. All other cars should accelerate when the car in front accelerates. There should be no overlap with the car in front of you during the start. The Gr.3 pole sitter should time the start to maintain a safe gap (roughly 15 seconds) to the Gr.1 cars.

    Mixed Class Racing Rules

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

    Gr. 1 Class Ground Rules:
    • Be Patient: Your job is to get around the Gr. 3 class responsibly. Do not dive bomb a Gr. 3 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. Sometimes that means braking earlier.
    • Have good situational awareness. If the Gr. 3 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. 1 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. 3 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 racing line, hold the racing line on exit and allow the Gr. 1 car to pass on the inside. If you are on an outside line in a corner, maintain that line on exit.
    • Have good situation awareness and make use of the radar in traffic situations. Understand which cars and how many are around you. Is there one Gr. 1 class car attempting to pass or a pack of them. Where do the Gr. 1 cars have a big advantage over you (straight, under braking, mid corner).
    • Do not block: Gr. 3 drivers do not have to move aside for an approaching Gr. 1 car, but they are not allowed to "block" or interfere with an Gr. 1 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.

    Eligibility

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

    Registration Instructions
    • Leave a reply in this thread to let us know you've registered and any other comments.
    There is a 16 car/driver limit for this event and slots are awarded on the grid using a first come first serve basis. Reference the registered drivers table above for availability. This is a stand alone race and points are not tallied for a series. Future WRS-Online races may have different driver limits and will require re-registration using the same first come first serve basis and participation in future events is optional.

    Cancellations

    If for some reason, after you register for the event, you are unable to attend please post a reply in this thread.

    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 or are stuck on the grid, 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)
    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. 3 drivers entering first in starting order and then Gr. 1 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.

    Hi folks, long time. I've been thinking about trying to get back onto the game after a bit of a hiatus so why not start with a big one! I was going to suggest I be removed from the list of stewards but judging by the fact that I can't see the stewards folder I'm guessing that's already been done?:tup:

    Figure I'll start small so put me down for May 2nd GT if possible?

    Yeah, just follow the instructions here to make your registry account active again. I assume your PSN is the same. If that's the case, just send the reg PM to Fetchy and your account will become active again.
