Thread: Announcement: CMS Nordschleife Hotlap & Qualifying Competition

  1. Default Announcement: CMS Nordschleife Hotlap & Qualifying Competition




    Open for business!

    From now until Friday, December 14th at 7 PM EST you get to show your mettle (or metal) at the toughest track in the world. And if you're fast enough, you get bragging rights and the pole position for the upcoming Special Event - Ten Laps of The Green Hell.

    As announced previously, you can run either the Porsche or the BMW GTE car from the Studio 397 Endurance Pack.

    Read the server settings carefully so you understand what is going on...

    Server Name: "CMS Nords Hotlap & Qual".
    The time is set for 11:00 AM and will not advance in time.
    Password: no password on the server.
    Practice: no practice session.
    Qualifying: 60 minutes.
    Warm up: no warm up session.
    Race: unfortunately the server cannot be disabled for a 2 lap race -- rest, work on setups, or drive it until the server restarts with qualifying.
    You cannot advance the server. This is so someone on a hotlap does not lose their time due to an errant server advancement by another driver.

    You are welcome to try as many times as you want to obtain the fastest hotlap.
    Results will be monitored in the "top 200" fastest laps section of LiveRacers Link: http://cmsracing-com.liveracers.com/...lap%20&%20Qual

    On Friday, December 14th at 7 PM EST the server will be closed and the bragging starts! Those who want to run the Ten Laps of The Green Hell need to just show up on race day and be on the server at the time designated in the event thread. Anyone who does not run the Hotlap competition is welcome to run the Ten Laps race, but you will start at the back of the grid.

    Questions regarding the Hotlap & Qualifying Competition? Ask them here.
    For questions about the Ten Laps of The Green Hell, please ask in that thread.


    Good Luck!

    Someone with "sufficient privileges" might want to post about this over in the S397 "Competition" forum. I would myself, but I'm not qualified.

    I think that particular forum is only for official comps from S397. Others cannot post there.
    At the S397 forums, something like this event should be posted in the "General Discussions" forum....there it will remain, and not be taken down.

    Not sure it matters much (except the lighting) but the server is currently running the session at 11:00am.
    Maybe it defaulted, because the temp is 84 as well. (Not that that actually matters since track temps have no effect on tires currently in rF2)

    Perhaps it'd be better to leave it now that some have completed laps?
    Not much would change, but the lighting might prove a hindrance in comparison to those that have already logged laps, if it was changed.

    Anyways, no big deal to me, just an FYI sort of thing since I noticed.

    ...now, back to the track. (Addicted to this car here )
