RULES:
You must keep the same car and skin throughout the championship.

No custom skins.

Please do not leave a race before it has finished, as this can mess up the official results and the replays.

If for any reason you leave the championship, you will be put at the back of the queue for future leagues.

Do NOT share server or Teamspeak details/passwords with anyone outside the group without permission.

No divebombing. (Going too fast in to a corner and causing a wreck) Taking an early inside line in to a corner and making the other driver take a wide line is not divebombing. If in doubt, the driver on the racing line has right of way.

No ramming, do not try and drive through someone if they are slower than you, had a bad start, or have lost control of their car, if someone is in your way, brake and go around them.

No blocking on hotlap, if you ruin your hotlap get out of the way of other drivers fighting for pole, try to create space in front for your qualifying lap to avoid "racing" in qualifying.

Rejoin the track only when clear and safe to do so.

Do not use contact to overtake (this includes A.I.) I know contact sometimes happens, but do not push cars out of the way. Anyone caught ramming WILL lose points.

Be polite and say sorry if you make a mistake.

There will be a brand new live/results/stats website available for all participants this league. There will also be redundancies to avoid any sort of faulty race data.
If time allow it, there will also be an "old style" F1 style chrono for all live sessions.

It is going to be a ton of fun :)

This should be a good laugh, especially with all the car choices. Will be interesting to see if anyone uses the GTEs or the slower GT3 cars (Ginetta,Bentley). For now though, Team Corvette for the win :)
Looking forward to the races.

I chose the shorter more technical tracks so all cars should be fairly even, makes the GT2's and GT3's much closer.

If anyone has been doing any set-up for Ruapuna, what kinda times are you getting? I have a decent tune with the Vette, hitting a high 51 most laps, could probably improve with some more tuning.

lifeofbrian
05-03-2016, 11:58
I got a high 51 in the Vette, a low 51 in the Z4, and never completed a lap in the Mclaren.:mad: And every time I do a practice race, it's an Aston up my arse.

Hamdridge
05-03-2016, 12:09
Ended up getting a low 51 in the Vette, same setup. It's quite a high downforce setup, do could probably get a bit more speed out of it.

[Edit]0:51:185 with Race fuel, beating WR by .003

If anyone is struggling with the Vette at Ruapuna, here is the setup I'm using:
229611
Its a little bit tail happy, but its not that bad.

2 days to go :)
Did some practice with my brother earlier, my setup is working really well, even with race fuel. Should be an interesting race.

I haven't set wheels on the circuit yet but i hope that i will get some practice tomorrow.
As usual i think i will put up a practice server for that purpose, but ill post that in the group eventually.

Great first races, had a nice balance between the GT2/3/E cars, and had a very nice battle with 2 drivers in the second race :)
Gratz to Hippo for the first win, and thanks for a good battle in the second :)

Now, onto Sakitto Sprint

Team Vette FTW!

Team Vette, sponsored by AMD? :p

Could be worse, it seemed Team Mclaren were racing on consoles :D

[Edit] and I've already beaten the record on race fuel. I think I need a nerf.

And here is the point where I ask about times :D
I've hit a 1:13:5xx on race fuel (30/40l), but still suffering from bad lift off oversteer in the first few corners. Will be trying to fix it tomorrow evening.

hophans

A little late but i have now made a practice DS for all to use. The reason is that online vs. offline racing seems to differ alot, so i prefer to practice at as close to league conditions as i can.
you need to use the -searchds launch option to allocate it (-searchds "ESR GT3 practice").
The password is that little gerball we often talk about, all in lowercase.

(This is only aimed at ppl that are participating in the league or have interest in checking out how our league drivers preform. Any abuse will be logged and bad ppl will be permanently blacklisted from all future ESR (and all other that i host) servers!)

Thanks dude :)
A quick question, will there be any Ai in it? It might help some people get ideas for overtaking points etc

hophans
21-03-2016, 15:34
The server is fully customizeble.

So if you use the -searchds launch option you can launch the server from the "create" menu in game and all parameters are availeble.

Short answer: Yes ;)

Anyone having any luck with setups? I'm struggling to even get near the WR in this one, about 2/3 seconds off the pace.

Getting 1:35.5 day, and 1:36 night, never look at the WW.

About a 1:36 off the top of my head, having some issues with understeer coming out some of the corners. Will have a look after work and try fix it.

Very good racing in both races tonight, had a good few battles with people in both and got some decent points.
Really sorry for the contact in the second race Brit,after watching the replay back, I misjudged the length of my car and just caught the back of yours.

Hamdridge

Setup time :-) I think the na cars might struggle keeping up with the McLaren, after some practice with my brother the other night he was about .1 faster over a quali lap, with a bit more BHP than me(he had 460/480,he cant remember exact). It looks like Iplay will struggle, he said he was only running 410BHP.

I'm sat on a 1:12.988 race fuel, 1:12.750 quali fuel.

hophans

Well i do slightly better than that in the McLaren, but that is in offline sessions. To my experience that differs a bit from an online session.

I do however struggle with the big downward leap in turn 6 where i keep loosing the back end due to dampening.
So more tinkering is required for me before the race.

Hamdridge
05-04-2016, 16:04
Probably something to do with the turbo, what power are you making? I think I'm at 440~bhp, so I will probably struggle on the straights compared to you as well. Managed to get it down to a 1:12:556 on 30L of fuel, and there are still some areas I can improve.

Hamdridge

Good news! Dash thing is fully working to how I'd like it, so shall be using next race. Although I am still tempted to get more screens...
