If you’re not racing with us, many of us stream the races on twitch, the links for which are in the livestream list linked above.
Also, instead of using parties or gamechat, we are going to be using the Oppositelock Racing/Digital Burnouts Discord to communicate during the races. If for some reason we are not using the app or it fails, we will be using gamechat to communicate, and hoping for the best. HERE IS THE INFO AND SERVER ACCESS LINK FOR THE DISCORD SERVER.
It’s been awhile since the last round, but now we’re finally getting ready for the next one! Weather and date voting is COMPLETED. The race will be held on July 28th under day time conditions. If you have a new car or livery, feel free to post it in the official livery thread.
BUILD RULES HAVE BEEN FINALIZED. CLICK HERE FOR THE CURRENT BUILDS. Builds have changed very little and most of you do not need to change parts. As was before LM, THE 1993 TOYOTA EAGLE MK III HAS REQUIRED TUNING SETTINGS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. THE REQUIRED SETTINGS ARE ON THE BUILD SHEET. Namely, there is a maximum amount of aero you are allowed to run. This was done because the only way to get the Toyota on pace with open tuning was to severly limit its power to the point of it being unsafe in traffic. While it is largely honors system for enforcement, I and everyone else will know if you’re running too much aero. Please don’t try and break this ruling and gain an advantage. If you do that, you’ve missed the point of these events entirely. Also, since the fuel capacities of every car are very similar, there will be no required pit stops for either class.
Continuing what we did at Le Mans due to this track’s length, dirty laps will be equivalent to clean laps in qualifying. I WANT TO BE CLEAR, THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU GET TO IGNORE TRACK LIMITS. We didn’t have any problems at Le Mans, so I don’t think we will have any issues. Also, due to the excessive length of the Ring, qualifying will only be one lap. Therefore, I am allowing and encouraging you to reverse at the start to make the most of the lap.
Also, caution rules will be a bit different this time around. Since there is no damage, the field will go green as soon as it is reformed. Therefore, depending on track position, we may not go past the pits under caution. It is also possible the pace car may not lead the field under yellow depending on where it is on track.
That’s it for now! Keep an eye on the Discord for any practice sessions or other racing.
