    So how many drivers exactly from each class per division? "Improve your position to improve your chances" is strangely vague.

    Hi Risto,

    There will be between 30-36 drivers per server and a minimum of 10 GT4 drivers in each. Ofc, we have to work with the final number we get from the invitations but that is what we will work towards.

    I really be of two minds about this event. I did two non multiclass special events last year on, let's say, normal racetracks (Spa and Suzuka).

    But about Bathurst I'm afraid this could be a real mess especially in the middle sector on the top of the mountain, because of Multiclass and full damage. And the racestart is also way to late (for european timezone for a sunday race.

    Isn't that why you want to race? The challenge of the mountain?:D
    No doubt there will be crashes, that is probably one of the certainties. This will be my first special event in RaceRoom and I'm well up for it.

    For those who want some race setup practice for the Bathurst 333, I've setup an open practice server for both GT4 and GT3.
    Server: Bathurst 333 Open Practice
    Damage: Full
    Assists: Open
    Time Progression: Off
    I'm not sure if there already is a practice server running but I'll keep the server open for as long as possible running up to the event.

    It's the final weekend of Leaderboard Qualifying for the Bathurst 333!

    We have had a staggering 478 entrants so far, can we make it to 500 before the LB competitions ends on Monday?

    it would be nice if you assign the cars to the drivers and fill in the grids with all the brands and liveries

    Bathurst 333 update!!
    Leaderboard Qualifying has ended for the Bathurst 333! Thank you to everyone who took part in the LB competitions!

    Email invitations have now been sent to all participants so check your inbox and reply via the response form (only once) if you are able to take part in the main event on Sunday. If you have NOT received an email invitation, please PM me on here or Discord. The deadline for responses is 10:00 am CET Friday, 31st January 2020.

    The race on Sunday will have Cut Track penalties DISABLED as there have been some instances of drivers picking up unwarranted penalties whilst entering the pit lane. All drivers must drive fairly and endeavour to keep 2 wheels within track limits at all times.

    Assists will be set at the Get Real preset:

    Driver Assist Transmission - Free Choice
    Driver Assist Steer - Forced Off
    Driver Assist Traction Control - Forced Factory Default
    Driver Assist Autopit - Free Choice
    Driver Assist ESP - Forced Off
    Driver Assist Brake - Forced Factory ABS
    Driver Assist Raceline - Forced Off
    There is now an official Bathurst 333 practice server up in the multiplayer lobby:

    Server name: Bathurst 333 | Practice
    Password: 333
    Drivers are reminded of the demanding conditions of this race. Condition yourself for being quick over nearly 2 hours, not 1 lap.

    Post #1 has been adjusted to reflect the above.

    Si.

    @Simon Fillingham for the practice server, it would more usefull to set dammage to full, so we can identify which rumble strip or other obstacle is causing suspension damage ;)

    @axxis278

    I've just checked. The server does have FULL damage enabled. So that's what will be causing your suspension damage.:p
    Worry about the walls. If rumble strips are your biggest fear, you're doing alright :grinning:
