    SATURDAY November 3rd

    Welcome to the MSN (Monthly Saturday Night) 1.5hr endurance race Club. Where everyone must run a different Gr.4 car.

    This is not your typical race Club

    There is no point system or Awards handed out for our race's. You are not punished in anyway if you can make a race.

    The focus here is to have a fun but very competitive race every month and with members running in the FIA events or just life events outside of the game it is not always possible to make every race. So if you miss a race your spot and car will be held for you until the next monthly race.

    This also allows for anyone to join one of our endurance races and be competitive while being on the same level as everyone else from race to race. You can choose to run the entire series or just one race if an open spot is available.

    The 1.5hr endurance races will be held on the first Saturday of every month. There will be 12 races in a season.


    Lobby opens at

    7:00pm EST for the US

    Mercedes
    Jaguar
    Audi
    Lexus


    Just post here that your interested in pre-registering along with an available Gr.4 car that you wish to use. You will keep this car for every race you do.

    You are expected to race clean and to be respectful to all other racers. We have had some outstanding clean & competitive races so far and it will remain that way.
    If you do not take this race seriously then you will be removed.

    For every new season the car list gets wiped clean and no one gets to keep their car from the previous year.

    A Special Qualifying Session will be held where everyone will be using the same Gr.4 car.
    The person with the fastest qualifying time gets to choose their Gr.4 car first for the season.
    The Gr.4 car selection will continue based on the qualifying times.

    You will have the out lap for a warm up and then the following lap will be your time. One lap is all you get so make it count.
    Only one person will be allowed on the track at any given time during this Special Car Selection Qualifying Round. This will insure you have the track all to yourself but at the same time everyone will be watching your qualifying run (The pressures on).
    Nobody will know the identity of the Gr.4 qualifying car or track until you are in the lobby.

    This special Qualifying Round will be held one week before the New Season Begins.

    Settings.
    1. One lap
    2. Tires will be Race Hards
    3. Track limit penalties will be set to high
    4. Damage will be set to heavy

    Just like in real racing push your car to hard and wreck and your qualifying run will be horrible.
    Abused the track limits and your penalty will cost you a decent time.
    I don't want to make this easy on anyone. There are some very sought after cars that will be on everyone list.
    You will have to be on your best and not let the pressure or challenges facing you stand in your way for a chance at obtaining one of your top picks.


    Good luck everyone.

    If your PSN name is different than the one you use on here then yes. If you want to include your Nationality that' fine but not needed.

    I will send everyone a friend invite before this event so it makes things easier.

    I don't know how the new BOP adj effected everyone but if you do not see a car on the list then it's not taken at the moment and you are allowed to switch.

    Since they did nerf the Aston (and rightfully so), I think I will give the Jaguar a try.

    Love the concept, US times won't work for me unfortunately. I am thinking about setting up something like this myself soon. One could set up a multiclass race this way.

    Race is this Saturday and we still have some spots open if anyone else wants to join in.
    There are people with different levels of talent signed up (list is on the first post) so don't be intimidated. Just race clean and all will be good.

    Before we race tomorrow I want to take this time to go over some more details.

    Waring this post is very long.

    Internet connection:

    I'm going to do my best at keeping the lobby from having connection issues on my end. The lobby will be a public lobby so if something should happen to me then it will go to my good friend @Infineon who has an even faster connection. Not that I have any problems with mine but it's just a backup safety precaution because the servers are not always reliable.

    Next up is the number of members in the lobby. Before the race gets started I will change the number of people allowed in the room to the exact amount of people in the race. This way because its a public lobby randoms will not be jumping in and out during the race and hopefully this creates a more stable room.

    For those of you with excellent internet connections we will be running a chat room along with the race on the PS4. Up to 8 people can be in a chat room. If you wish to join we will get you setup before the race. Spoken language will be English.


    Race Stewart:

    Because I'm hosting the race I will not be qualifying. I want to be available for everyone until the race starts should any questions or issues arise before the race.
    I also have no problem dropping out of the race should a problem come up that needs my immediate attention like kicking some out for intentional dirty driving.

    Penalties:

    The penalty settings for this race are on strong. If you get a non increasing penalty please keep racing as normal and lose it over time. If you get an increasing time penalty under no circumstance are you to stop or slow down with people behind you or in the racing line at all. There are several of spots on the track that you can safely stop to serve your penalty out of the others way.
    At the very end of the front straight in the top right as far as you can go against with wall without being off the track is the best place. No one should ever be up there unless they are completely out of control.

    Exiting the Pits:

    You must keep to the left side of the track when exiting the pits until you are up to full speed. Under no circumstance are you to jump right into the racing line when exiting the pits. Wheel users please make sure you wheel is straight before you regain control.

    Caution Flags:

    With full damage on and ghosting off Caution Flags will actually mean something so do not ignore them. A wreak or car spinning on the track or someone serving a massive penalty could end your race quickly if you choose to ignore it.
    If you are damaged or serving a penalty penalty going slow and off the race pace put your flashers on.

    Lap traffic:

    Try to study each racers livery before the race you can do this by clicking on their names as well. It is your job to know who the leaders are and if your about to get lapped by them. You are also responsible to move out of their way if you're not racing someone eles for a position. Excessive light flashing should only be used to warn a racer they are holding up the leaders.
    Also the leaders must remain respectful and not get frustrated and try to barge their way through.

    I will go over more stuff in the lobby before the race.

    See everyone tomorrow about 26 hours from this post.

    Not sure if someone will or not but hopefully I'll try and save the replay and eventually make a video for it.

    I won't be because I want to keep the lobby as stable and reliable as possible.

    Someone else might be able to but I'm not sure.

    Thank you all for the amazing race! Minor complications here and there, but it'll only get better as we do this more often :)

    The start was carnage :lol: as well as spinning out quite often :O
    Quite glad that I was able to snatch 2nd despite those setbacks :D

    Next time we will do private lobby to avoid causing more complications. I really didn't think that many random people would jump in on a 1.5 hour race. I was wrong. On the plus side we meet some really fast and nice people too.
