PostSubject: FOX Track Day   Sun 19 May - 20:10

I am pleased to announce the Formula XR (FOX) Track Day. The track name (and lap count) you will know when connect to server [MRc] Event (track will be loaded 10 minutes earlier to allow some initial setup downloading/adjusting).

Event starts Sunday, 26th May 18:00 UTC



The schedule for the event is:

  • 40 minutes practice. During practice we do setup-adjusting and helping each other in getting good pace. We also can discuss tactics and everything related to the event. Also you can use MRc TeamSpeak server to communicate (ip is 5.135.138.58, you can query it by !ts command on our servers)
  • 5 minutes break
  • 20 minutes qualification. You should not go to pits or spectate when being on track. To go to pits or spectate you need to stop on pit-lane.
  • 5 minutes break
  • 130 km race. (limited to 50 minutes, so even if planned lap count wasn't done the lap after 50th minute is the last one). During the race you must change the tires at least once (so at least 1 pit stop required).



Additional notes:

  • http://en.lfsmanual.net/wiki/Rules_of_Clean_Racing are in place there.
  • Overtaking under yellow flag can end up with penalty. However, you will be warned before penalty and will have chance to give gained positions back.
  • If you damage your car so that your driving become dangerous (suspension broken hardly or tire burst and so on) you may get demand to pit and fix your car from Race Control. If for some reason you do not fix your car within 2 laps, you get disqualification from the event.
  • There may be safety car on event (if I find the driver for it).
  • Retired from Race: If you disqualified or can't drive any longer for any reason you should first ask Race Control whether you can spectate yourself (We will imagine like there are cranes which take car from track while safety car allows them to work). If we won't have safety car you still need to wait until Race Control allows you to spectate.
  • Crashed in Qualification: If you can't go to pits because of crash or serious damage, you should ask Race Control whether you can spectate. Then you need to wait some time before you can go on track again. If you lose more than 1 car , you will get +3 positions on start after qualification.

Event runs with [MRc] bish authorization.

Some changes to regulations are possible. If some any happen then answer to this topic will be posted, so I suggest you to watch this topic (press "watch this topic for replies" in the bottom of the topic page, or you if you answer, it happens automatically).

UPD: this time the track will be chosen from classic ones (not open config), so racing line guide will be available. But it can have some additional tirestacks, armco, barriers etc.

UPD2:
* When safety car goes to pits you can start overtaking ang going full speed after white line near pit enter.
* There can be warmup lap. If so, we will run traffic lights when cars get on starting grid (there will be some markings on track). Be carefull and run slowly after last turn. Also when warmup lap starts you better wait until car in front gets away (just a suggestion). False starts will be checked during race and some penalty can be applied, so be carefull.

Added info about track choice (only classic LFS tracks, not open config ones)

@Turbo-Power,
don't you want to drive safety car? I'll tell you the track name in advance if so. Also we need to discuss the car choice because RB4 can be too fast Smile

Mate, the point is... They are not going to drive the event (and you are), so they can be involved fully (because I try to save the secret of the track name). We appreciate your help on setting servers and so on, mate. And honestly it is a good thing that so many guys joined me on arranging the things.

Next time we maybe do it the other way, so no one will know the track until hour before event or about.

Sorry if it made you feel uncool : (

PostSubject: Re: FOX Track Day   Fri 24 May - 10:55

the idea of event was mentioned to me by yourself originally then i said that you could arrange one and anything requiring a supad or admin then im able to do,

now onto the subject of race organisers taking part in an event.its happened before when they have someone else watching over the race for them, its what i done before i was asked to be a race organiser.

what i was disappointed about is how it was discussed on the server while i was there but not in english and as soon as i saw my name mentioned i use google translator to find out what was said

the ideas used for the race was solely your ideas but i was in as the organiser or admin that backed it or supported it.ive still the messages to back this up

but honestly im not going to cause a fuss over it,as the team is whats important to me and not what has my name behind it,and its not you who i was disappointed with mux

all the best and i know it will be a great event which honestly i will have more fun taking part in racing,so its probably for the best.

Hi Bish, yes you're right it was a bit unfair of us.


I must also Excuse if I have said or written something false!
I will be more considerate to the other in the future. Promised
I hope it will be despite small organizational problems, a good event and
I can all together enjoy the event with you and have fun!

turbo your a good member and i have a lot of respect for you,and have a lot more respect for you now for your honesty, thankyou for your post mate

Qual results:

1 - Stuart 1:15.10
2 - 1stBFA Jati 1:15.29
3 - [FM]^benni 1:15.30
4 - [WCL]jsrk[FIN] 1:16.04
5 - [MRc] Sam 1:16.69
6 - [MRc] Michal 1:17.09

qual replay


During first laps Stuart was overtaken by [FM]^benni. And on end of 7th lap he got 2 wheels on grass and spinned (and retired from event), made Stuart go off-track with damaged suspension. So after fixing the car Stuart became 5th.



On 30th lap safety car was deployed cause of [MRc] Michal overturn. While safety car was on track 1stBFA Jati made pit stop, but exceeded the speed limit in pitlane and got drive-through penalty. And Medical car helped [MRc] Michal to get back on wheels. After restart 1stBFA Jati made his drive-through and became 2nd.

Race results:

1 - Stuart 50:40.95
2 - 1stBFA Jati +0:14.41
3 - [WCL]jsrk +0:43.36
4 - [MRc] Michal +4 laps
5 - [MRc] Sam +5 laps

# - [FM]^benni DNF

race replay

Thanks to everyone who came. Some mistakes been made and some experience gathered, hope to get better next time.

Yeah that event was great (yes a bit chaotic but great), I enjoyed it so much Wink
but it need some improvements next time (like no-shift+s rule) and more people racing (I was disappointed that just 6 racers attended).

I believe that next event will be epic Smile

i didnt even realise that the event was on sunday. good thing probably as i have been having problems with my internet randomly disconnecting.but hopefuly that will be fixed very soon

Suggestion - many know that my memory can be pretty bad,also sometimes things can slip anyones minds,so what i would propose would be the day before an event or on the morning of the event an email sent saying its a reminder that the event is the day after .... i dont think it would take much work to do,as you can add there email addresses as contacts in google mail for example and add them all as the ones to recieve the mail, and then have a simple template written up ready
