    This is a series for those who love the ‘Ring!

    [​IMG]

    We meet every Wednesday afternoon and evening at 1330 and 2030 respectively, US Central, at the Nordschleife for races among friends. We use BOP/not tuned cars with Heavy Damage.

    If we are short of drivers we BOOST race for two laps just for giggles.

    We maintain a monthly schedule which will mirror the VLN, but max race length will be three hours

    On week 1 the race is 45 minutes,on week two its 90 minutes,on week 3 we do a Two hour race. On the fourth week of every month our primary race is 3 hours.

    If we fail to have enough to race, the race length will be modified as follows:

    (I think it was Setted that said we ought to set race length by number of drivers. That is a great idea so that you will know by the room size what we will be doing. If we can follow our weekly schedule we will. It was REALLY nice to actually get back to endurance racing after the long pause.)


    4 or less ....boost races of 2 laps
    4-6 45 minutes max
    6-8 90 minutes max
    9-10 120 minutes max
    10 or more either 2:30 or 3:00
    All races will be followed by boost madness of course.


    we will try to maintain the previously posted schedule but the above will be the fall back so you KNOW what we will be doing.

    All races over 90 minutes have a single mandatory 5 minute pit stop to simulate a driver change. The Driver Change pitstop may not be in the first thirty minutes of the race. If you fail to complete the 5 minutes due to leaving prematurely you must complete the stop on your next lap and complete the time.

    This is friendly, but intense racing. If you have some body "off" or you run wide (out of bounds) you MUST concede.

    What is important is that we have fun and learn from each other and treat each other with respect.

    Occasional touches are OK, but if your touch is really a big bump or it causes the car you were following to go off line or lose time...fess up and concede. If your contact results in damage to the other car and he is forced to pit to repair damage, you must follow him to the pits and pit with him. You may refuel and change tires but you may not use that penalty stop as your driver change.

    Great fun with our practice for the WRS Special event....we drove Gr4s in 4 lap sprints and then finished with a 10 lapper. We started with a chat with @MasterGT and @Goldomor and ended with 7 or 8 as people dropped by.

    Tomorrow at 1330......90 min at the Ring either gr4 or 3. One stop.
    Race will be preceded and followed by a two lap GT 89 GRMN boost race just to get the juices flowing and to let you leave smiling.
