Forum Introduction
This forum was created to host my flagship Multi-Class Endurance League forum. With the series only run January to June. I will be using this forum to host other events throughout year. I usually host on Saturday nights as this works best for my current weekly schedule. I like to offer a realistic as possible experience. Expect realistic settings, heavy mechanical damage, fuel consumption, and tire wear for almost every race.

Saturday Night World Endurance League
This is a semi serious endurance racing league. This intended to be my new flagship series for GT7. Running annually January to June. Race schedule will somewhat bi-weekly. With some variation do holidays, major world events, and personal events. Races will be up to 2 hours in length with both timed and laps races. The Daytona Road Course and Circuit de la Sarthe (Le Mans) will be annual races. With La Sarthe swapping between layouts. Races will feature realistic settings including heavy mechanical damage. I wish for this league to be Gr.1 / Gr.3 multiple 2 classes if attendance allows it. I will be offering a small reward for the top finishers in the championship each season. Details for this league available in post 2 and 3 for this league.

Saturday Night Fall League
When the Endurance League out of season. I may use this forum to run a one-off leagues through late summer and fall. I'm a racer of many interests. So the fall concept will likely change annually. Check out post 4 for more details.

Saturday Night Specials
I may run some non championship special during the off seasons. Check out the bottom of post 1 for details on any upcoming special events.

Forum Rules, Notes, and Procedures
Currently Being Updated

*Livery Rules
You may run any livery you want as long as it does not contain the following.

*No Profanity
*No Pornographic Material
*No Political Material
*No Racially Sensitive Material
*No Logos of Manufacturers on Rival Manufacturers Cars

Basically nothing that can get us in trouble. No I'm not on YouTube but, I do race replays in game. Last thing I want anyone banned for inappropriate graphics on their car.

I may enforce a light cover or color restrictions for certain events or leagues.

*Contact and Aggression
I have a very conflicted view on contact in racing. I feel being too strict discourages passing but, wreck intentionally other drivers is not okay either. So generally allow minor contact l. As long as no damage was done and everyone is still facing same direction I don't care. However forcing another driver off track or into a barrier may result in a penalty. My leniency may vary depending on the scenario and nature of the race track.

*Race Traffic and Recovery
All race pace traffic has priority on the track. This priority doesn't apply race traffic off track. Slow traffic must do there best to clear of race traffic until up to race speed. This includes when exiting the pits. Slow traffic may use run off and access roads to return to the race or to stay off the main. Be warned Gran Turismo may reset you in some cases. Driving or reversing against race traffic is strictly prohibited. You may only reverse to clear an obstacle or to reorient yourself with race traffic.

*Wall Riding
I really hate being penalized for hitting a wall when it's already self punishing in most cases. So I try to avoid using Wall Penalties as much as possible. Intentional wall riding or taking advantage of any other flaws in game to gain an advantage will result in a severe penalty and or disciplinary action. I will not punish accidental wall riding as long as the driver gives the back the time gained. If the fastest lap is posted with a wall ride. Anyway points or rewards will be lost.

*Track Limits (Road Courses)
I don't really care where you are on a straightaway but, note race pace traffic has right of way on track. I personally consider the stripped curbing part of the course. If there is no curbing that the track boundary line dictates the edge of the course. If all tires are out of the edge of the course any given time. I consider this off track. Any driver off track must yield to drivers on track. I usually use either weak or strong corner penalties for most road courses. What strength depends on the sensitive the track's boundaries are and how easy it is to cut parts of the course. Corner penalties are not use for Tokyo Central layouts as it not possible to cut any parts of the course. See oval track limits for Daytona Road Course banking.

*Track Limits (Ovals)
My track limits for oval are pretty lenient since in most cases it's self punishing. So use the apron at own risk. Broad Bean Raceway Forward Turn 2 Reverse Turn 3 may not be used at race pace. Slow traffic and traffic exiting the pits. May use this area to safely re-enter the race. Forcing another driver off track before or in the transition of steeply banked corners may result in a penalty.

*Yellow Flags
I usually have flags on to provide warning of upcoming danger for blind parts of race tracks. Because of this sitting on track is prohibited in practice, qualifying, and race. As it may lead to other drivers being wrongfully penalized. Any overtaking in yellow zones is prohibited. Any positions taken in a yellow zone must be returned once you have exited the yellow zone or the flag has been lifted. This includes lap traffic.

*Blue Flags
I usually do not enforce blue flags unless specified. Remember Gran Turismo is primarily sports car racing. Bullying slower traffic especially lesser classes may result in a penalty

*Group Qualifying Rules
Group qualifying for road courses are generally done with Gran Turismo's own qroup qualifying but, I occasionally host my version when I feel like inconveniencing myself. Please be respectful other cars on track. Allow faster cars on a timed lap to pass when safe to do so. Cars that are on an out lap may not interfere a car on a timed lap. Even if they are faster or different class. This includes any car that has spun or crashed and are no longer compatible of best an already set lap time. Interfering with others laps especially intentionally may result in a penalty or other disciplinary actions

*Race Qualifying
This style of qualifying will usually consist of a much shorter duration race before the main feature. Sometimes I might link grid positions to previous features. A qualifying race might follow another qualifying method. A pit stop may or may not required.

*Qualifying Fuel / Tires
Amount of time allow will very by the length of a lap. Fuel and tire multipliers are usually the same. I don't usually take away fuel for the start of qualifying cars start from the pit line and should be full of fuel. Exceptions will be noted in event details

*Multi-Class Events
Gran Turismo 7 has made running multiple classes much easier. And it can be done with BOP active for the Gr classes. I mandate there must at least 4 entries minimum for a class to official before the start a league. And on a race night there must be at least 2 entries per class before the start of qualifying. Any remaining player may choose to join a competing class. Should one of entries leave between qualifying and the race. It will be treated as the car had a mechanical failure on the grid and couldn't start. I will give the the remaining player choices run the race solo for a free class win or give up the win and join a competing class. Should a class fold mid season. Any remaining player will be awarded the class championship and will allowed to join another class. Points are not transferable between classes.

*Restart Policy
I will restart races for only lobby glitches and or mass disconnections. Whether or not I restart the full race will depend how far into the race we are. Should an issue come up during qualifying. I mostly will not restart and use some other method to set the grid. I do not restart for single disconnections or lap 1 crashes. I can't restart for every single issue. So I choose to view single disconnections as mechanical failures. It's the player's responsibility to make sure their internet is working. As of for lap 1 crashes. Not every race starts smoothly both in real life and in game. Luckily all damage is repairable in GT7. Lap 1 crashes are fairly common. However real life races will not restart for this reason and nor will I. Because I consider it a form of race manipulation. If I were to eliminate someone's bad start. I may be taking away good result or even a race win from someone else.

*Self Policing:
I can't watch everyone even if I wasn't participating in the races myself. So it your job to help make sure your fellow competitors are following the rules. Please report anything suspicious to me or fastone371 privately after the race. Either through PSN or GT Planet private conversation.

*Promoting
If you want players to attend races. Please help advertised for my leagues and special events. I already promote every way I can but, I need help contacting players I can't reach. Remember this will also to improve your own experience

*Initial Fuel At Start Usage
You may have noticed that your car doesn't start 100% full off fuel. This is because I use the initial fuel at start setting. To simulate the fuel your car would need to burn to get to the race start. The amount of fuel taken away varies based on a combination of the start type, track length, and performance of the cars. The amount of fuel you'll be starting on is usually note in the race details.

The room will be reset to allow late arrivals to enter the race. Drivers who enter late after qualifying will start by order they entered the room behind all qualified entries.

Sprint Race Format: If the track does not have a functional pit. Since I'm 100% sure from the pictures there still is a pit. This event will be split into 3 separate 25 minutes races. With two 10 minutes intermissions which will act as non live pit stops. For this format the first race will start immediately after qualifying. Drivers who finished the previous race will retain their positions to start the next one. As long as they don't leave the room or change their cars. Those who change cars in between races, leave the room voluntarily or involuntarily, or enter after in-between races start the next race by order of room entry behind the drivers of the previous race.

Post 2: Endurance League Intro, Lobby Schedule, Race Schedule, Regulations, Room Settings, and Award Info

2024 Endurance League Intro
This is the 2nd season of my flagship endurance league running from January until the end of June. Like the 1st season I wish to make this a multi class league. Although I'm only trying for 2 classes instead of 3 since a maximum 16 car grid is pretty small even for a single class. So Gr.1 and Gr.3 classes will be available for the 2024 season. No model restrictions or limits for either class.
Unfortunately less popular class will cancelled if there's not enough entries. There are 15 races between scheduled with 14 race for both classes. Races are single driver and will vary between 1 and 2 hours length. With a mixture timed and lap races. All races will feature realistic as possible settings including heavy mechanical damage. Yes even for the really difficult tracks. Any skill level is welcome. I as long as they are respectful other drivers. Driving in circles for hours is a great way to improve. More experience is never a bad thing in race. Anyways I asked everyone to please help advertised league. And welcome the 2024 Gr.1 / Gr.3 Endurance League.

OK I found you hook me up Iam in
Welcome to the league! Check in often and Please read through the league's rules and regulations in the first 4 posts. I'm not the best writer so there are mistakes. Also what time do you in?
 
@fastone371 @Rasta vibes @harrison1476

Merry Christmas and or Happy Holidays to everyone.

I wanted to give an update on League activity.

I've pretty much finished the race schedule except for round 4. Which you can find on post 3. The first round has been pushed back one week. And our first race will now January 14th instead January 7th.

While I intended to make this a multiple class racing league from the start. Sign ups have been very slow. We currently only have 4 members. I do hope this picks up after the holidays. I have set a 3 entry minimum for each class to become official. As of now 2 class would have be canceled. Which I would likely Gr.1 as sole class. Because the distance of the scheduled lap races were set with the pace of the Gr.1 class in mind.

No BOP??
 
Do you have a list of races that won't use BOP? Shouldn't we know this for car selection?
Even without BOP it will be no tuning, correct?
Sorry to be a little rude. But why did I type up the 4 main posts. If not even my most loyal follower will read it.

Car tuning will allowed will some specific
exceptions for the Gr.3 class if. For regulations check post 2.
 
My mistake, sorry. I have read the pertinent info but I am still slightly confused (its probably my low IQ causing me problems again). Am I to assume we will be running only GR1 if entries do not increase quite a bit? If it is going to end up a GR1 series will it be BOP with tuning? Outside of that it's really only ovals that will be run without BOP, correct??
I ask because I would like to start working out which car I will run, I am vastly unfamiliar with GR1 cars because I seldom drive them.

Yeah I'll probably go with Gr.1 because of most the lap races are scheduled with Gr.1 pace in mind. It would be pain to reschedule everything in short notice.

I might have also have to run the races with an open lobby. And try to attract more players that way. It's how started Rinsky the MSN league.

Do to Gran Turismo not allow gear ratio adjustments with BOP. If there any races specifically at Daytona Oval or SSRX with Gr.1 or Gr.2. I'll turn off BOP for those races and let everyone have complete freedom for these races.

The Gr.3 class cars don't redline to the limiter at default. Unlike some of the Gr.1 and Gr.2 class cars do. So I can run them with or without BOP at Daytona Oval or SSRX.

Is the Mazda LM55 a permitted car to use in this series? It's listed as both a VGT and a GR1 car.
The Gr.1 version is permitted. Currently all cars in the Gr.1, Gr.2, and Gr.3 classes are permitted. Since no class has been officially canceled yet.
 
I might be able to race with you all. Keep me posted. Not going to commit. Fill your league if you can. I'll see when it gets closer and if able will message you. I have my Dad in the hospital so waiting to see what happens here. Hopefully he will be home by then. I'll be a possible back up if there us a slot open. If not on the 14th then maybe another time.

Thank you for your consideration. Due of the low interest. There's not enough to justify multi classes. So I'm probably going to drop the multi class concept in favor of just a Gr.1 series. At least for the 1st season.

List Of Changes

*Races / Qualifying will now start 7:45 pm EST

*We are Switching Gran Turismo's Qualifying for all 2023

*Maximum Lobby Occupancy 12 (Due to rumored glitchs of room over 12 players)

*Now Gr.1 only for 2023

*Race lengths have been reduced to between 40 minutes and 2 hours. (Thought it might be scaring people)

*Round 4 officially scheduled as 200 km at BB Raceway Reverse. I wanted at least one oval a season but, felt there's already to many high speed tracks.

*Round 6 at Tokyo Expressway East has been switched to the Counterclockwise version (To reduce chances of the public using wall riding to gain an advantage. I personally hate wall penalties)

*New points system which is a version of WEC points system modified to payouts for 12 drivers instead of 10. (I wanted to try using IMSA points system but, couldn't find it anywhere on their website)

*New Official Series Name

*New Series Introduction

*Regulations Updated

*Settings Updated

*Rules Updated

*Forum reopened for recruitment
