    Default Fall Season Test Race - Nurburgring Sprint - 9-10-17

    Join us on Sunday September 10th for a fun-run with the Ford Escort at Nurburging Sprint.

    The Escort is a nimble touring car, fitting for tighter, lower-speed tracks. Nurburgring Sprint (not GT) is a technical layout that will give us a fine chance to get used to our new ride.

    We will run 1x fuel, with a mandatory pit stop.

    This event will be standing start. AC now allows gear selection before the green, but be aware that it also allows (and penalizes) false starts! So don't go before the green!

    The server is set for 2 minutes between the Qualifying session expiring and the start of the race. Be sure to check the remaining time when the session advances so as not to get caught out.



    The Orange Zone for this event will be through Turn 7 (Warsteiner) as shown on here on the track map.

    Race Schedule
    Practice: 8-8:45 p.m. Central Time (US) - 45 min
    Qualify: 8:45-9:00 p.m. Central Time (US) – 15 min
    Warmup: 9:00-9:05 p.m. Central Time (US) - 5 min
    Race: 9:05 p.m. Central Time (US) - 60 min

    Note that AC (finally) supports timed races, so the lap count will not be pre-determined.

    Download the skin pack here.

    We will be using a vintage skin pack for this event, download link to follow shortly. The server is also not up yet, I will post here when all is ready (Tues at the latest).

    I hope I'll be able to make it...

    Would it be possible to use forced pit stop instead of 2x fuel rate?

    If it is a forced pit stop how can you monitor if the car is getting serviced or not? Driver could be just doing a stop n go?

    AFAIK you need to refuel or change tires to be a valid pit-stop. You can still only put 1L of fuel, but in my experience that's not the best pit strategy for a 60 minutes race.

    I'm only asking because it would make it easier for me to practice and get my pit strategy off-line.

    Yeah, that is a problem with AC. Now you have timed races for Multiplayer, but you cant practice offline consuption for a timed race.

    My wheel is down awaiting parts so I don't think I'll be able to join test, although interested in the series.
