Oct 10 - "Rolex 24" enduro at Daytona
« on: October 03, 2017, 11:07:51 PM »
Next Tuesday will be a 2 hour endurance race at Daytona International Speedway (Road Course) [ download ]

Cars
Corvette C7R (with 50% restrictor)
Ferrari 458 GT2
BMW M3 GT2

No restrictions on tyres, no mandatory pit stops. Fuel rate will be 0.8x (so cars can go somewhere between 1h30 to 1h45 on one tank), to widen the pit window.

Qualifying
To save time on race night, qualifying will be done on the practice server over the coming week before the race. Post a time on the practice server, and that will be your qualifying time in your nominated car.

Qualifying times are here. You have until Monday night (9th) to set a qualifying time and nominate a car.

Race
The race will start at 8:15 pm (after a practice session), and will go for 2 hours + 1 lap.

Good track. Slow sections joined to fast blasts with some frightening chickens. Who's going to get the closest to those tire barriers?

BMW for me.

 And the never seen in any sim 'moto course' and 'faux '67 layout'.

Although the '67 version probably exists in GPL.


The chicken (sic) tyre bundles in my version have no collision so feel free to blow straight through them, of course PLP will not be so forgiving to you doing so.

How hard is it to make them solid? I like the additional threat of destruction :)

Could we remove the non racecar themed skins from the server? I keep getting a white skin as I have removed the plain skins from my install.

Turns out there aren't any plain jane skins for the BMW.
Sorry for the trouble.

Having said that though, there are five plain Ferrari skins that could be deselected from the servers config. ;)

And I'm still getting a white BMW even after an integrity check. :o

Also getting a white bmw

I'll be choosing the bmw..

not that fond of the oval section of this track, it's definitely too small width wise, I can see some bad accidents because of it.

I think it's a good mix of oval and road circuit.
