    PLEASE BE ADVISED F-A-C-T-O-R HAS BEEN PUT ON HOLD UNTIL THE FIXED TUNE OPTION BECOMES
    AVAILABLE PLEASE FOLLOW LINK TO
    T-R-A-C
    THE HISTORIC AND MODERN
    FIXEDASSETT0CORSATUNEDONLINERACING


    With private lobbies around the corner l would like to organise and host a fixed tuned racing series with the aim of clean, close and fair racing. Each series would be a championship so points would be available but structured in keeping the standings as close as possible, extra points would be available for pole position in qualification and for the fastest lap in the races. As the host l am HOPING l will be able to force the following:-​

    • FIXED TUNE
    • MANDATORY PIT STOP
    • SUCCESS BALLAST

    The FIXED TUNE will be stock but with adjusted fuel, tyre compound and gearing to suit track. The MANDATORY PIT STOP will open up a personal race strategy. To level the playing field further SUCCESS BALLAST will be allocated before event qualification based on championship standings and then allocated based on current event previous race results. If ballast isn't a option then reverse grids will be a substitute.​

    The race series will be events with a predetermined car taking place on a different track each week involving 3 races.​
    • 15 minutes qualification to decide 1st race grid position.
    • 1st race aprox 25 minutes and results dictate 2nd race grid position.
    • Short break.
    • 2nd race aprox 25 minutes and results dictate 3rd race grid position.
    • Short break.
    • 3rd race aprox 25 minuets.
    F-A-C-T-O-R members must sign up to GTPlanet and have a YouTube account link to their PS4, a headset is preferred to aid communication although while racing chat to be kept to a minimum. Video record time will need to be set to 60 minutes, this can be achieved in PS4 Settings, Sharing and Broadcasts and Length of Video Clip, Link with Other Services will provide access to your YouTube account. The races being 25 minutes means there will be plenty of time to push for some points, to encourage clean fair racing there will be PENALTY deductions for abusing track limits, causing collisions, the loss of race positions and not giving the gained position back. Fastest laps, racing incidents and complaints will need to be backed up by a ShareFactory video clip.​


    DRIVING REGULATIONS AND ETIQUETTE

    PITTING PROCEDURE

    THERE WILL BE NO RESETTING BACK TO PIT LANE, ACCESS TO THE PIT LANE WILL BE VIA THE CIRCUIT PIT ENTRY LANE ONLY AND UPON LEAVING THE PIT LANE AND ENTERING THE CIRCUIT THE EXIT LINE MUST NOT BE CROSSED.

THE OFF TRACK DRIVER MUST WAIT OR MAY DRIVE ADJACENT TO THE TRACK UNTIL SAFE TO RE-ENTER AND NOT CAUSE ANY DISRUPTION TO ANY ON TRACK TRAFFIC. UNSAFE RE-ENTRY MAY INCUR A PENALTY. A DRIVER THAT LEAVES THE TRACK AND GAINS A POSITION ADVANTAGE HAS TO RELINQUISH THE POSITION AT THE SOONEST SAFEST OPPORTUNITY WITHIN ONE COMPLETE CIRCUIT. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY INCUR A PENALTY.​

    THE CAR DEEMED TO BE LEADING HAS TRACK POSITION SO CAN CHOOSE THE DESIRED DRIVING LINE THROUGH A TURN UNHINDERED. FOR A CAR TO BE DEEMED LEADING IT NEEDS TO HAVE A MINIMUM OF A 1/3 OF A CAR LENGTH OVERLAP BEFORE THEIR TURNING PHASE BEGINS.

TO MISJUDGE THIS MAY INCUR A PENALTY.​

    RECKLESS DRIVING MAY INCUR A BAN.

    PLEASE RESPECT EACH OTHER ON AND OFF THE TRACK.
    ABUSE OF ANY DISCRIPTION WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.

    THESE GUIDELINES ARE TO HELP EVERYONE ENJOY THE SERIOUS T-R-A-C RACING EXPERIENCE

    Having said that (pending what private lobbies mean?) l would like to organise two different series running each week, MODERN MONDAY and HISTORIC THURSDAY both in the evening 19:00-21:00 GMT UK. The MODERN will have ABS and TC and the HISTORIC will be no driving aids as default or forced off. Please note l'm a ds4 phobic so as it's a sim steering wheels only.​


    Please Private Message me with any questions and PSN if of interest and l will add.​


    BIG SHOUT OUT TO WarriusZero FOR ALL HIS HELP
