Live now! The Nürburgring 2.4 hours multiclass race!
Thanks for this experience. This was my first "serious and longer" race online, amazing! Finished second with the TT-RS, and had a long battle with E. Contarin. Very fair and entertaining. Thanks again!
The next special event takes place at Spa, on Sunday, July 28th! 2.4h race with GT3, and the first use of car-specific penalty weight in our competitions.
BOP controversy incoming.....
Car-specific penalty weight?
Can you explain that please?
Pretty much just a little bop adjustment. Some cars are gonna get a bit of extra weight for the race so that the cars are as equal as possible performance wise
See point 14 in the rules:
14 Balance Of Performance Weight
In the race event, the following cars will carry additional weight:
Mercedes AMG GT3 - 25 kg
Callaway Corvette C7R - 15 kg
Nissan GT-R GT3 - 15 kg
BMW M6 GT3 - 15 kg
Alpina B6 - 10 kg
Corvette Z06.R - 10 kg
Mercedes SLS GT3 - 5 kg
This ballast weight is not applied on leaderboard. You can drive a different car in leaderboard and race.
Doesnt make sense to have no Weight added on the Leaderboards. no?
Just read the full rules and there is no mention of whether pitlane assistance is allowed? (I am rubbish at pitstops)
Just a question, why is the race named as multiclass race, will GT Masters also be allowed during the race?
GT Masters will be allowed. But I can set only one class in the leaderboard competition.
I think the "Multiclass" is just copy and paste from last event
I cannot set ballast weight in leaderboard, so it will be only on the race server.
About pitlane assistance, I use no server setting that prevents it. But since I have never used it, I would recommend trying it out before.
Thanks for the Info

They just finished on the real circuit, now it's time for the virtual race: The RaceRoom Spa 2.4h race is live now.

Server 2 / German: https://www.twitch.tv/xstreamteamlive
We had a good race on server 4. I had one unforced error which resulted in a little spin, and I 2 stopped when the best option was a 1 stopper but was happy to get onto the podium. The winner was in a different class to the rest. 1.17 laps crazy.
Results from the Special Event: http://game.raceroom.com/championships/32#results_round
- (from my perspective) nice clean racing on server2
- the cars and the track fit's perfect
not so good:
- almost a AMG Cup-Race especially on server1 and 2, the 25 kg where way to less
- the slow downs, maybe for the future change them to "collect" the slowdown times and put it in front of the pitstop-work and/or put them to the resulttime
Most underrated car from my perspective the P4/5.
The next special event will take place on 24. August.
What will we race? It's your choice!
