The races are usually run on Saturdays. There will be a qualification (35 minutes // 15 min. GTE + 15 min. DPI) and a race between 6h and 12h for each event. The exact dates can be found in the racing calendar (navigation on the main page or in the info section in the forum).

6.2 Maximum number of vehicles allowed

The maximum number of vehicles allowed is : 45

6.3 Conducting the competitions

a) Training

If the organizer can do, a training server for free training is provided all day and all the time between the races. Free trainings are generally not streamed. Special training and test days will be announced in the racing calendar. Special trainings can be streamed by the organizer.

b) Qualification

Each rider has 15 minutes to complete their fastest lap – there is no limit to the number of laps. Individual qualification according to classes (15 min. DPI + 15 min. GTE).

ESC ban applies during qualification – This means that a driver must not switch from the track to the pits using the ESC button. If, despite the ESC ban, you switch to the pits, the vehicle may no longer leave the pits in the current qualification. The use of the ESC key is permitted within the pit lane, at your own pit area. The starting grid is based on the lap times achieved in the qualification.

c) Start und Pre-Start

The race begins with the formation lap. It cannot be overtaken! Overtaking during the introductory / formation lap is only permitted if a vehicle was late when leaving the grid and the vehicles behind it could not avoid driving past.

The leader sets the speed, but should adhere to a directional speed of approx. 130 km/h. We will have a flying start in double file formation.

The start takes place in 2 stages:

The start release for the DPI class takes place through the simulation.

The start for the GTE class is given by the race management via Teamspeak Whispersignal with a time delay of around 10 seconds.

Early starts punish the game with a drive-through penalty /Stop&Go penalty.

d) Races

The duration of the race is basically 6 to 12 hours The speed limit in the pit lane is set at a flat rate of 60 kph on all tracks. After the end of the race, each vehicle must drive into the pit lane under its own power. The first three line up for the winning photo at the end of the pit lane.

e) Pitstops

The driver change time is reduced to 1 second. It takes place at the same time as other service work. It is not possible to choose different tires on the front and rear. The tire change extends the pit stop time. The refueling time is 2.5 liters per second.

f) Restart

There is no restart after the server has started because individual drivers, for whatever reason, had a disconnect. Restarts due to accidents are also excluded. In exceptional cases, for example in the event of technical problems on the server, the race management reserves the right to initiate a restart. In this case, the originally planned race time will be observed if possible.

g) Tracklimits

The track limits are generally penalized by the simulation. 5 cuts warnings are set on the server side. With the 6th warning, the simulation awards a drive-through penalty.

If the racing commission recognizes an advantage by shortening the track, it can issue separate penalties.

6.4 Racetracks

The tracks are driven according to the specified racing calendar. The appointment calendar can be viewed on the SRC website or in the forum.

6.4.1 Weather conditions

The weather conditions are retrieved live from several nearest weather stations of the race track and initiated into the simulation. A suitable server plug-in is used as a weather data station. For example, weather data can be retrieved via Wetteronline.com.

6.4.2 Track conditions

Each track starts with online posting or update “green” without grip. When the track is used by the vehicles, the grip conditions change dynamically. Rain washes off grip that has already been drilled off the track. Dynamic lighting and weather conditions place high demands on the PC hardware. Therefore, every team must ensure that smooth image reproduction is guaranteed on their own computer in all conditions.

6.4.3 Tracklimits

The track boundary is indicated by a white solid line. If curbs are directly adjacent to the white line in curves outside the route, they count towards the track. There must always be two wheels of the vehicle within these distance limits at all times.

6.5 Driving aids, damage and aids

The following server settings apply:

  • Automatic clutch and shift allowed
  • Damage: 100%
  • Tire usage: normal
  • fuel usage: normal
  • ABS: No server driver aids
  • Traction control: No server driver aids
  • Pitspeed: 60km/h
