V8 Racing League 2015 - information and sign-ups


Since 2008 there was at least one league during summer using the fastest LFS driving aids free car - Formula V8. Unfortunatelly this tradition was ended by organizing body NDR,leaving a gap into LFS racing. In order to not leave this gap empty,Race Green Events steps in and launches new league - V8 Racing League (short - VERL)!

League race format is quite simple - every round features 20 minutes free track qualifying and race,where lapcount is set to minimum to exceed 200 kilometers,except in round 5,where 200km race would be stretched a bit too long,so it's shortened to 150 kilometer race. League will offer pure racing without any strategies as there will be no mandatory pitstops,neither "hardcore simulation" will be enforced to keep things simple - everyone can telepit in qualifying,also Safety/Pace car will not be used. League schedule will include 2 races at current LFS's freshest track Westhill and one race each in South City,Kyoto Ring,Aston and Autocross layout track. Half of season races will be held on standart LFS tracks,other half on custom configurations,where Kyoto will feature just one different section,rest of track will be the very familiar GP Long configuration.

To spice up things in fight for chamionship,Race Green Events will present a small money prize to VERL Drivers Champion!



Series schedule:
28.06. Round 1 - VERL Westhill Grand Prix (Westhill International, 35 laps / 201.25km)
19.07. Round 2 - South City 200 (South City Chicane Route Reversed, 69 laps / 201.273km)
02.08. Round 3 - Kyoto Summer Grand Prix (Kyoto GP Alternate, 26 laps / 200.2km)
16.08. Round 4 - Aston Classic Challenge (Aston Classic Boot 38 laps / 203.68km)
06.09. Round 5 - Race Green 150 (Race Green International ACW, 125 laps / 150km)
04.10. Round 6 - Westhill 200 (Westhill National Reversed, 46 laps / 202.216km)

Rules:
We will not make a mile long rule book that noone will read completely anyway,so we will rely on common sence of competitors to behave and follow the basic Rules of Clean Racing. There will not be an admin in server who will specifically observe drivers' behaviour during the race. If any incidents reported/protested,we will take individual approach to each of them to decide best resolution or punishment if needed.

Basic guidelines as a reminder:
> Blue flag - you may not deny/block a passing manouvre of laping car and try a repass right after it. In qualification it means - stay off racing line and don't disturb drivers on hotlap.
> Shortcuts - 2 wheels on track at all times.
> Pit exit - allthough there will be no mandatory pitstop in this league,pit exit lines will have to be respected.
> Chatting - it's not completely outruled,but still drivers are expected to concentrate on racing. In case of too much chatting while ignoring messages asking to cease chatting,a penalty may be given. In case of any abusive/offensive language a penalty will be given!
> Lags - if there are any connection issues,driver will be asked to improve (close internet using programs). If driver will be considered as dangerous due to unstable connection and high ping,he will not be allowed to participate at the current round.
> Hacks/cheats - if used,you will not race with us. Ever. As simple as that.

Possible penalties:
> WARNING - any minor infraction that needs to be noted without penalty. Warned driver might receive bigger penalty for other infractions.
> 10s added to finish time - minor infractions,like pit exit line violation,too much chatting.
> 30s added to finish time (1 lap penalty in round 5) - medium infractions,like causing avoidable incident[s] without serious consequences.
> 60s added to finish time (1 lap penalty in round 2 / 2 laps penalty in round 5) - medium infractions,like causing avoidable incident[s] with consequences to other drivers (like damage,multiple position loss) or unsportsmanlike behaviour.
> Disqualification for 1 or more rounds - heavy infractions,multiple incidents,unsportsmanlike behaviour. After serving disqualification,driver will automatically carry a "warning" for the rest of season.
> Series exclusion (including ban for any other events run under Race Green Events control) - serious infractions like intentional/revenge wrecking,event sabotage and any other malicious act.

Thanks! Razz Never intended to do something unique,just went for quite generic indy design,individualising it with Race Green Events colors...
Quote from vitaly_m :Rony, why don't you put awesome curbs like this?

Because 25cm ramp-walls proved to be too low to motivate drivers not to jump over them. The chicane is ment to make the section more challenging and also slow down a bit instead of lead them with bigger speed right into upcoming wall at the right side of chicane exit. I tried combination of lower and higher objects to make the curbs lower in one side and higher closer to wall,but LFS layout editor resolution is just too low to make it safer to suspension. So I left the older version and added posts to mark dangerous side of curbs.
