    NARS 2018 Autumn Fun Race
    March 761 & Brabham BT44B @ Spa
    Thursday, July 26th, 2018


    We can all thank John Nelson for this Fun Race!
    It was his idea to have this fun race, so he got the chance to pick the track, although I did shot down his suggestion of using Watkins Glen because I wanted everyone to have a chance

    Track Download: Spa

    March
    Brabham

    While this is a Fun race and NOT a free-for-all we expect you to abide by all the standard CMS rules and regulations

    Local Race Start Time: 3:00pm
    Start type: Manual Rolling (see below)
    Time Acceleration: 1X

    Driver Briefings:
    For the server password see THIS post.

    Orange Zone Info: (What is an Orange Zone? See rules & regs.)

    Orange Zone is through the exit Turn 4.

    NOTES:
    1. All events will be run in 100% dry conditions for the entirety of the race but weather conditions such as sky, humidity, outside temp, track temp, wind speed and direction will change for each race.

    2. NO MANDATORY PIT STOP.

    3. Fuel and Tire usage will be set to 1x.

    Warm Up Session:
    Once the Warm Up session has started THE TRACK WILL BE CLOSED for the Drivers Meeting and no one is allowed to be on track during the drivers meeting. If someone does go on track while the track is considered Closed they will get a warning message from the Admin to get off the track, if they do not get off the track after this warning in a timely manner their qualifying position will be forfeited and they will be put at the back of their class for the rolling start.

    Start Procedure:
    A: For this series, we will continue to use a modified rolling start. This will include a one-lap, single file rolling formation lap controlled by the driver that won the pole position for GT3 and TC. Once the race has started GT3 class will start their formation lap following the Pole Sitter at a pace speed of 60mph (100kph). The pole sitter for the TC class will wait at least 5 seconds before the TC class starts their formation lap at a speed of 60mph (100kph).

    A.1: If a driver other than the Pole sitter advances past other vehicles during the formation lap, they are required to allow all cars in their class pass by them and start the race at the rear of their class. If they do not follow this procedure they will receive a NQ for the next race they attend.

    B: Be advised that as the game places you on the grid the car directly in front of you is NOT the car that you qualified behind. It would be the car ahead and in the opposite lane. As the leader starts rolling you need to allow the car in the row ahead and in the opposite lane to "fall in" behind the car directly ahead to achieve single file in the proper qualifying order.

    C: The race starting point will be:
    The race Start shall be the exit of turn 19 onto the Start/Finish line straight.

    D: Do not weave back and forth, abruptly speed up or slow down, or jam on the brakes in an attempt to warm your tires or brakes during the formation lap. This could easily cause an accident with another car anyone found doing so may receive a NQ for the next race they attend.

    E: If you lose control on the formation lap, you MUST let all cars pass and rejoin at the end. The penalty for not doing this is a no qualify at your next event. If you cause an accident on the formation lap, you will be DQ'd from the race results, and will receive a no qualify/drive thru at your next event.

    Pit sharing:
    Be aware that some of the tracks that we use will have less pit stalls than we have drivers. Therefore it is very likely that you are sharing a pit stall with another driver. The best way to deal with this is for you to always pit as far as you can to the inside of the pit stall. This way if the driver your sharing with pits on the same lap as you, there will be room for them to receive pit service as well. If done correctly this works quite well. If you have never done this I recommend you practice this until you feel comfortable with it. Essentially you are splitting the stall in half. If you pull too far to the side the crew will not service you. If you don't pull far enough to the side the crew will not service the driver you are sharing with.

    Track boundaries:
    Please stay within the white lines. It's really in all of our interests if you do here.

    I don't see either of the tracks after downloading and installing them. Am I missing something?

    Scott, if the install is not through workshop, then you have to open the Content tab menu, and manually force the install of the track, after put it on the Packages folder.

    Another question: Really a manual rolling start?!

    Yeah, did that. I see them in my packages folder and they are installed, but not showing up when I go to choose track ingame? Weird.

    Yes, like every race we have here at NARS.........If you are thinking a standing start it wouldn't be much of a race as half the field would be taken out trying to launch these beasts.

    Drove these beasts for the first time on the server. WOW, they got the sound almost dead on. They handle like the real ones looked like when I use to watch them on TV. The default setup is lacking a lot imo, Still practicing for the MNRL fun run and the test race for the endurance fall series. Cannot wait to see how these cars work out in a group and doing some slip streaming.
