Please fill out the following survey.
For the next special event the admins are considering a 2.4 Hour Mixed Class Enduro race. This thread is to gauge interest and confirm availability of drivers for the proposed time slot. We'd appreciate your feedback via the survey whether or not you can make the actual race. E.g. If you have a conflict, but would otherwise be interested in this event on a different date. If the time slot doesn't work for you, but you would be interested at a different time. If you are just not interested in a race of this length or with these cars or this track, etc.
Each class will consist of a single car model to eliminate the need to equalize the specs. The LMP car will be targeted at more advanced drivers and will be a challenge to control for a 2.4 hour race. Drivers may select either class, but LMP cars will require a baseline performance level to qualify. Drivers can attempt to qualify for both classes and can get on the reserve list for LMP and active list for GT for example.
The race will be grueling at 2.4 hours in length and drivers that register will need to commit to completing the event. Running an enduro with a small grid is not our goal. We want to run this event with mics enabled as we feel this length of a race will benefit highly from their use. This may limit the field to under 16 and we'll do some testing to determine the correct number. We may also investigate alternate voice channels such as team speak in order to run a 16 car grid, but it all depends on the interest level and grid size. We hope to register a full grid plus some reserves to fill the grid in case of last minute cancels. We plan to offer a shorter event run simultaneously for any drivers on the reserve grid if they don't get into the Enduro. A race with the same track/cars so you can benefit from the practice, but shorter in duration and starting about thirty minutes after the full enduro.
We've run all our previous special events on Saturday, but we're planning to run this event on Sunday because several of the admins have conflicts on Saturdays in March. If response heavily favors Saturday we're open to reconsider that decision. Feel free to add any other comments. There is a field on the form for comments or better yet, you can reply to this thread with your thoughts, suggestions or questions. We plan to create an official event thread in the next week or so depending on the response.
Thank You, OLR Team:gtplanet:
