www.simracingmadness.com SRM Discord Server Tuesday Nights are Series, Enduro, Shootout and Madness Nights Qualifying @ 7:30PM EST Race @ 8:30PM EST Friday Nights are Casual Nights Beginning @ 8 - 8:30PM EST We are a fun group that races Tuesday & occasional Friday nights. Some of us run wheels and some on controllers, pick your weapon of choice! There are plenty of drinks to be had on these nights and we don't get hurt feelings if there is a bump here and there . That doesn't mean we are not a serious group because we race hard and clean, but we never forget to have fun . The race info will always be posted on page one! Feel free to drop in the thread and chat, we are open to new guys and gals at all times. If you'd like to race with us, just speak up! Post here or send us a message on PSN. We are always looking for clean, respectful drivers, who don't take themselves too seriously, are open minded, with a wicked sense of humor, can roll with the punches and dish it as well as they can take it. SRM is always willing to share tunes and help setup at any time. There are some seriously quick guys here, ALL of them have great tips to share. Never hesitate to ask for help. Series Racing The bulk of racing with SRM is on Tuesdays and will be Series Events. These are usually 3 consecutive Tuesdays, each with 1-3 races a night depending on how the series is structured. Drivers are encouraged to not miss a night to keep points tight, but missing a night is not unheard of. The series are kept to only 3 weeks because long series commitment isn't always fun. Enduro Nights Between Series we will occasionally run 1-2 Hour Endurance races to break up the routine and offer a different experience. It's not for everyone, and you may even need a special jug to get yourself through the race. Shootout Nights Think of a Shootout Night like a mini-series. In one night we will run 3 or more races of varying lengths and score it as a single event. Madness Nights These have fast become the most requested of SRM Events. Similar to a Shootout, except special rules and track limits are imposed to keep the racing tight and manic. SRM is not responsible for lost body panels and hurt feelings during Madness Nights. Casual Nights These are held Fridays and more or less come and go sort of affair. The lobby master will select random makes and tracks in short 10-15 minute races until everyone passes out. If you've wanted to try a certain combination or lobby setup and some cheeky fellows to go along with you. Throw out a recommendation! Every now and then, we will open up our casual nights as public lobbies, so please be aware of that. In those instances, let us know if some public knob is acting up and we'll be sure to mash the kick button. Standard Room Settings Unless otherwise noted in the individual event information. Rooms should always run like this: Force Interior View: No Force Driving Line Off: No Force Default Setups: No Force Manual Gears: No Force Realistic Driving Aids: Yes Damage Type: Visual Only Mechanical Failures: No Allow Ghosted Vehicles: No Force Manual Pitstops: Yes Pit Stop Errors: No Competitive Racing License: On Track Limits: Off Enduro Race Procedures: Enduros are a different monster from regular races. A few things we will do with enduros going forward: Manual rolling starts: Once everyone is lined up, and the leader is given the go ahead, the leader calls the start of the race with "GREEN GREEN GREEN." No counting down, it causes too much anticipation. In the instance the leader has no mic, the host will call the start of the race. Yellow flags: Races with Performance Impacting Damage turned on will run with BOTH Random Cautions AND Safety Cars. Races without Performance Impacting Damage turned on will run with only Random Cautions. Spoiler: Random Cautions Cautions can happen anytime 10 Minutes after the start of the race, and 10 Minutes before the end of the race. Cautions are NOT guaranteed. It is possible there will be multiple cautions called with a minimum of 10 mins between cautions. Once one caution has been called, the chance of a 2nd one is much lower. Cautions will last between 5 and 8 Minutes. Over voice chat, you'll hear the robo-lady say "CAUTION, CAUTION, CAUTION." Once in a caution is called, the Leader slows to 50 MPH / 80KPH. No Passing! The rest of the field can catch up, but cannot pass, and slow in position behind the leader. You may pass if the person in-front of you crashes under the caution. Lapped cars may pass the leaders, but not each other, and continue until catching the car in front of them. The Pits will always be open. You may pit under Yellow. The end of the Yellow will be called by robo-lady as "GREEN, GREEN, GREEN." Once Green is called, you may race as normal, but please pay attention to where you are on track and others around you. It is possible Green is called in a corner or wet part of the track and you don't want to be jamming the throttle. Spoiler: Safety Cars If you crash to the point where you cannot get top speed or control your car safely, you may choose to become the safety car. Using game chat, please call out "SAFETY CAR" or "CAUTION" to make others aware you are driving slowly on track. All vehicles may pass and race as normal until the overall race leader is behind the crashed/safety car. Once the leader catches the safety car, they and the rest of the field must slow and follow the safety car. No passing or overtakes are allowed once properly lined up behind the safety car. Once the safety car pulls off the track and crosses the pit entry line, the race can resume by the leader calling "GREEN." Generally, drivers who attended the last event will get priority over returning or new drivers for races. If you cannot make an event PLEASE let us know by posting here or in the SRM Race Control PSN Chat.
