     This will be a 10 race series for the Corvette Z06 RM. Tentatively set for Friday nights, room to open at 8:00 PM Eastern, qualifying at 8:15 PM, and main event at 8:30 for approximately 1 hour. Maximum of 12, maybe 14 openings.

 

     Tentative start date is April 19th. 10 races will end the series just before the summer holidays.

 

     Points will be awarded; 16 for 1st place, down to 4 for 12th. points will be given for disconnects and excused absences as well.

     Never mind the points  scheme - more fun without worries about your points placing or missing a race.

 

The Car:

 

Chevrolet Corvette ZO6 RM

 

600 HP

1150 kgs

 

Full tuning and aero allowed

 

Tires are Racing only - compound will be left to the individual driver.

 

Additional Specs:


ABS, TCS and the Driving Line allowed. No Skid Force, etc.

Fuel and Tires set to Normal, weather dry and daytime.

Boost will be Off

Draft to Weak

Damage Light

Penalties Off

Grip off track set to Real

 


Notes:

 


   New for the second half of the season - all success weight added is no longer required. Instead, each win will reduce the winner's HP by 4 hp. 2nd place - 3 hp, 3rd place - 2 hp. These regulations start for Twin Ring Motegi on May 24th.

 

     There will be a success weight added to the first 3 positions after each race! 1st place will add 30 kgs, 2nd place will add 20 kgs, and 3rd will add 10 kgs of ballast to the car - you may move it wherever you like. This is an experiment to help even out the field, and might be temporary, in which case all weights will be up to you.

 

    All drivers will race in as courteous a manner as possible. No tolerance for rough racing, poor sportsmanship or hacked cars! Offenders will get one warning; further offences will result in ejection from the lounge and disqualification.  Cutting corners is also illegal - please try to keep 2 wheels on the course at all times.

 

     In the event of an incident on-track, please allow everyone to regain their positions before continuing. Yellow flag procedures can be added if everyone wants to.

 

    Please post your car number and paint colour in the sign up list below. Thanks!

 

 

The Tracks:    laps will be posted closer to the event day

 


1. Daytona Road - April 19th - 35 laps

 

2. Fuji Speedway F - April 26th - 40 laps

 

3. Corde (custom track by Gojet-64)- May 3rd - 35 laps

 

4. Laguna Seca - May 10th - 45 laps

 

5. Cote D'Azur - May 17th - 40 laps

 A shout out to Gojet-64 for letting me include the Corde circuit from GT Saturdays. Thanks !  

 

    Anyone interested, please sign up with your car colour and number; and I'll add you to the list. Races held in my lounge, so please send me an FR.

 

 

Technical Inspections:

 


    May be necessary due to the weight regulation, however: I'm not going to enforce this at first. we will use the honour system. Just be ready in case I ask you to put your car up on share so I can check your weight adjustment.

 

If anyone wants to post pictures, or some off-topic stuff, there's a thread for that .

     That's it for now - hope to see you all on track!

sweet.  like that you chose the z06 rather than the ZR-1...

 

I am definitely interested, but will have to wait until the date gets closer to commit toanything.

 

baby arriving in a few weeks so that will definitely play into this a bit :smileywink:

Still curious to see if ABS is allowed or not. I'd love to see a no assists room here. Lock-ups look cool in pictures.

Sorry Master - yes, ABS will be allowed; I'll go fix that right now! You don't have to use it if you don't want to.........

 

Nice to see you, Wagg. It's been a while! I'm happy to see this getting a bit of interest; was wondering - lol!

 

The inauguration date is flexible; and most of us remember from SCREAM, a missed race isn't a real disaster. I'm kind of leaning away from a points scheme right now - just to keep it fun. Nothing really set in stone, yah? Should be interesting to see how much ballast it takes to ground crow. rofl  :smileytongue: :smileyvery-happy:

So a question about weight ballast. Do we keep it the whole season or just one race?
