    2000 SROL F1 Season (PARC FERMÉ DETAILS ADDED)

    Post by steviejb on Mon 23 Feb - 2:16

    GAME STOCK CAR EXTREME

    That's right! For the first time in SROL history, we will be using a sim other than rF1 to run an official series. To take part, you will need to own Game Stock Car Extreme, which you can now purchase through Steam.

    SERIES FORMAT

    Race Weekend
    Wednesday -- Practice Day 1
    Thursday -- Practice Day 2
    Friday -- Practice Day 3
    Saturday -- 20:00 GMT +1 -- Qualifying (15:00 Eastern)
    Saturday -- 20:30 GMT +1 -- Warmup (15:30 Eastern)
    Saturday -- 20:40 GMT +1 -- Race (15:40 Eastern)

    * Times are approximate & subject to change depending on technical issues, drivers finishing and small differences in race length.


    QUICK DETAILS

    - The race server will have the next track in the championship loaded on Wednesday's at 12pm GMT for unlimited running.
    - In the days leading up to the first official practice day, the server will run a selection of test tracks that are not used during the main championship
    - Each driver gets 12 laps in the 30 minute qualifying session
    - Formation/Standing start; Leader cannot exceed 100 mph / 160 kmh
    - Drivers must be able to lap within 110% of the fastest time set in qualifying and/or lap consistently without crashing or endangering other cars during practice and qualifying. If you are unable to do so, you will be asked to leave.
    - 100% Damage.
    - Black flag only, no safety cars.
    - Auto-Clutch, Blip and Lift allowed
    - 1x Fuel, Tyres and normal mechanical failures


    PARC FERMÉ

    For this series we will be running with parc fermé. This is being used to simulate the tyre regulations from the 2000 season. Due to this, you must choose which tyre compound (soft or hard) you want to race on and also qualify on it. You get new tyres every time you escape back to the pits in qualifying and start on new tyres, but you can not change from soft to hard during qualifying or the race. Softs are quicker and come up to temperature faster, but will likely result in a two stop race at most tracks, whereas hards will usually be a one stop, but slower and cooler. With parc fermé, certain things will also be locked in the setup after you've completed a lap in qualifying. They are:

    Tyre compound
    Brake duct
    Weight distribution
    Gears
    Rear wing
    Differential
    All "Garage 2" options in the setup menu

    SROL F1 2000 MOD

    The mod itself has been completely reworked from the original F1 2000 RVR mod. We believe we've created something that is fun to drive while hopefully creating a believeable experience of a 2000 F1 car. We're also hoping that we've created something that will also offer alternative stratagies at different tracks as the season goes on. Feel free to leave feedback in the series discussion thread and we'll be sure to take it in.

    A REQUEST FROM MYSELF
    I understand there will be people who want to do hundreds and hundreds of laps on the tracks we're actually going to race on, but I would really appreciate it if people would honour the format posted and NOT test offline while the server isn't running the current track. There is obviously no way of enforcing this, so I'm really looking to you guys to go along with it. When the track goes up on the server, by all means, drive as much as you please. When the server isn't running on the next series track, it will run on a number of test tracks for you all to try out setup changes and whatever else. Thank you.


    POINTS

    1st - 10
    2nd - 6
    3rd - 4
    4th - 3
    5th - 2
    6th - 1

    There are no points for pole position, laps lead or fastest lap.

    There are two cars per team, no custom liveries.

    Section on parc fermé added. Please make sure you read this so you don't get any nasty surprises when you escape back to the pits from a qualifying run.

    Just to reaffirm the new times (which I posted about in the San Marino GP race notes), we are now running GMT+1 for session times, not GMT. Please make sure you know when the sessions are locally.

    Saturday -- 20:00 GMT +1 -- Qualifying (15:00 Eastern)
    Saturday -- 20:30 GMT +1 -- Warmup (15:30 Eastern)
    Saturday -- 20:40 GMT +1 -- Race (15:40 Eastern)
