    |TG| Endurace Racing Team



    Hey all,

    Recently I entered in SimHQ's 2.5 Hours of Daytona race using the ILMS 2.78P mod for rFactor. I am looking to form a team to compete under the Tacticalgamer.com banner in the upcoming 2.5 Hour Endurance racing season starting with the 2.5 of Sebring on March the 20th at 1200 EST/1700GMT. This team would be known as the Tactical Game Endurance Racing Team. The race covers the full 24 hour day/night cycle over the course of 2 and 1/2 hours of racing, leading to intense nose to tail racing where strategy is essential. Drivers can choose from any number of vehicles to drive.

    The Basics (FAQ)
    Q: What Game is this going to be played on?
    A: rFactor 1 with the ILMS v2.78P Mod. When rFactor 2 is released this year we will have to switch over to that, as SimHQ currently plans to do so.

    Q: Are these 24 hour races?!
    A: Nope, these are 2.5 hour races, i.e. 2 hours and 30 minutes.

    Q: Do I need a wheel?
    A: Technically, no. The ILMS mod team has gone to great lengths to recreate these cars as accurately as possible, therefore the best experience will be with a wheel and pedals.

    Q: What do you mean by a team?
    A: Together we will represent Tactical Gamer by upholding the core ethics of the primer, we race together against the other drivers. While there is no points tally, we will race in similarly liveried cars with a team tire/fuel strategy optimized to garner the best results.

    Q: I've heard some wacky things about racing as a team, does this mean that you can order me to let you through if I've passed you?
    A: There are no Team Orders on the TG-ERT, we work together through strategy to place as high as we can on the time sheets.

    Q: Does this mean if I'm driving a GT-2 I am racing against a car 40-50 kph faster?
    A: Yes and No, on the overall time sheet all the classes are laid out by position just like any race. This is a class based race, you only really race against cars who are in your class. If you drive an F430, you will not compete against an R8 and so on.

    Q: What cars are available to drive?
    A: Just as the real Le Mans series there are four classes of cars to choose from LM-P1, LM-P2, LM-GT1, LM-GT2. P1 and P2 are Le Mans Prototype cars, think F1 cars with a body kit, these are the fastest cars on the grid which are also purpose built for racing. GT1 represents highly modified road cars built for racing with more than 25 example of each having been built. GT2 consists of lightly modified road cars with minimum aero and power compared to the other cars.

    LM-P1
    Acura ARX-02A
    Audi R8
    Dome S101M
    MG-Lola EX264
    Pescarolo C60

    LM-P2
    Acura ARX-01B
    Dome S101J
    MG-Lola EX257
    Porsche RS Spyder

    LM-GT1
    Aston Martin DBR9
    Corvette C6R

    LM-GT2
    Ferrari F430 GT
    Porsche 997 GT3 RSR

    Q:Where can I get the mod? Added 1/17/10
    A: You can download the mod by clicking http://www.rfactorcentral.com/detail...le%20Du%20Mans

    Q: Where can I download the track? Added 1/30/11
    A: You can get it here (Registration required).

    The team will consist of no fewer then four drivers, and no more then eight including Test/Reserve drivers. I am looking for as many as five Race drivers other then myself and up to two Test/Reserve drivers. If a driver cannot make a race, one of the Test/Reserve drivers will take their spot for that race. Please fill out the following form if you are interested in racing. Any and all questions please contact me either on Xfire or Teamspeak, or by posting below.

    *Teamspeak Name:
    *Sim Racing Experience:
    *Class to compete in (optional):

    Well crap if it was on GTR2 or the Race series I would have joined but I don't have rFactor here, and with rFactor 2 coming out soon there's no point in buying it now

    Re: Thoughts on forming a TG Endurace Racing Team

    If rFactor 2 comes out before the race or at some point during the season, which lasts through the year (7-8 races total), we'll all have to switch anyways and if there is a spot you can join us then. I read that rF2 is due in Q1, so fingers crossed.

    Re: Thoughts on forming a TG Endurace Racing Team

    Ok, so I've been trying out a few different cars (wanted to take a break from the 997) and I think I'm going to drive the LM-P2 Porsche Spyder. I really like the feel of it, and the way I'm able to get the power down in the chicane complex. Let's also start thinking about livery ideas. I'm going to talk to the TG administration to see if we can get an rFactor server up for testing.

    Also some information:

    Track Maps (3.7 Mile version is being used)
    http://www.na-motorsports.com/Tracks...es/sebring.pdf
    http://www.trackpedia.com/mediawiki/...52/Sebring.jpg
    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...al_Raceway.svg
    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi..._satellite.png

    Track Debrief Form: (layout is out of date, but corner numbering is the same)
    http://www.tax-whistleblower.com/rac...brief_Form.pdf

    If you haven't used it before you can use this to mark what gears you use in which corners. It's good to use to get consistent on the track. You don't need to use it, but I like to.

    Re: |TG| Endurace Racing Team

    There might still be an rF server on a box somewhere. Though, it's been so long, it could be very deleted. But if it's just 3 of us right now on the team, anybody could easily host and play with no performance issues.

    As for practice time, let's actually schedule something so I can be sure to attend. Weeknights are best for me, except for Wed.

    Oh, as for liveries... I did some TG themed skins a few years ago. Long gone, but I'll see if I can recreate something in a mockup for consideration.

    Awesome! I'm around most nights, so weekdays work well for me. How does a Tuesday sound? I'll add the version I'm using of Sebring to the OP, though if Virtua_LM come out with their version of it, that's what SimHQ wants to use.

    Great. Let's plan on this Tues. 8 ET work for you? I'll grab the track and get acquainted with the mod before then. I'd be happy to host (barring gremlins )
