Notices:
Rules & regulations: Before you take to the track in the league race, make sure you are fully aware of the rules and regulations of the leagues. As a driver in our leagues, you are required to do your very best to ensure clean and fair racing at all times.
No-shows: If you are unable to attend the race, please inform the League Coordinator and leave a post in this thread BEFORE the race takes place. Note the rules of participation here.
Lobby settings: If you are unsure about the rest of the lobby settings that will be used, look here.
Save your replay: As a means of helping the stewards with any enquiries, all drivers are required to save their race replays and keep it stored for at least one week after the race has taken place. If you are involved in an incident or see something during the race that you feel needs to be investigated, you are free to make a stewards enquiry - however if enquiries are submitted without replay or race footage available, it is likely we can't do anything.

Driver list for Race:
LMP3 (14):

@OTL DAVEALEX4
@GTS - Carlito
@ScottV
@F4H MaR4uDer
@BMW /// M-Power (Promoted to main to replace a dropped LMP3)

Reserves for this series will be handled so that reserves will replace the drivers in their class only, i.e if the main GT4 class has a spot, a GT4 driver will be taken before an LMP3 driver. The remaining slots after each class is filled to its main capacity will be taken in order of the sign-up list. We are also hoping to create a sort-of second tier where any reserves not accepted into the main will still be able to race each round.

Reserves:
1. @Pirate
2. @InFeRno
3. @aaren
4. @dakuza
5. @BMW /// M-Power

Reserves are expected to inform via the Main Thread if they will be a no-show for each race. Most tracks allow for 32 drivers so at least 6 reserves will be taken each week. The reserves will be rotated based on attendance and participation for each race. Note that just because you are listed as a reserve, you are not necessarily going to miss every race during the season, we hope to give every driver the opportunity to race. However it is up to you as a reserve to make sure that you get that opportunity, by showing for each race in discord and informing the coordinators when you will not be able to make a race. No-show, no inform will affect your placement in the reserves list.

First 6 Reserves in (guaranteed a spot):
1. @Pirate
2. @InFeRno
3. @aaren
4. @dakuza
5. @BMW /// M-Power
6. @XzweN

Hello all. I'm going to host a practice quali and race tomorrow night 8pm UK time, like we did for Laguna Seca.

Let me know if you fancy it, so I know how many human spaces to make in among the AI :)

I guess we can use the Endurance League discord channel to chat again as well.

Put my now down for that practise @BrakeCheck101 I really need it this time xD
Looks like it'll just be us!

I'll set up a lobby called "IMSA Long Beach praccy" at about 7.45pm.

Password will be the usual one.

Any suggestions for AI difficulty? I think I ran them on 95% with 50% aggression a couple of weeks ago and they were a little bit slow, so happy to push them up a bit more.

@BrakeCheck101 probably worth putting the difficulty up to about 100 as they were really slow at leguna seca and probably will be at long beach, I don't mind the aggression. I can also get one more person to show even though he's not driving the league he doe's some socials and I can vouch for his ability to drive clean/fair.

No worries mate, will run them at 100% and no worries about the other person joining in - more the merrier :)

A 100 difficulty gets the LMP3s running in the 16s-18s and the GT4s o think were running 22s?-25s?

I'm having a few issues with the audio on my headphones. Lobby won't be ready at 7.45, but I'll have it up by 8pm.

Might need to just drive with speakers and no chat.

Hey y'all - I'm a bit of a dunce and didnt realize until now that the fact that I'm moving tomorrow is going to stop me from playing Round 4. Please give my spot to a reserve for this race, but I'll definitely be able to attend Round 5 and 6.

Please, I ask all the LMP3 riders to take into account the GT4 riders as we are also competing and in this circuit there are 2 zones where overtaking is very difficult, not to say impossible, as it is off track. would hit a wall and annoy the race, so I ask for patience when it comes to doubling in those areas because they are narrow.

Having said that, there probably will be a few unavoidable racing incidents - it’s a difficult track for same classes of car, let alone multiclass.

I think the main problem area is the last two corners though - think the P3 drivers will just need to be extra patient.

It’s a 90 minute race though, so everyone should finish in the position you deserve - even if you’re more cautious than usual while lapping/being lapped.

Don't worry much about that! There are straights for easily overtaking but also don't make it hard for us to do that! We all need to loose a little time.

I was thinking....what about pit entry/exit, especially exit?
Those are dangerous situations, so maybe all drivers should announce their pit entry/exit on discord, for example: P(position)5 pitting/ P5 exiting or something like that!?
And one more thing....maybe we could do start of the race with one line formation! It will be safer for everyone and we could avoid a big accident in first and second corner at the start eventually.

It might be worth implementing the rule that you're not allowed to cross into the it exit. It's not enforced in game but there is a clear line and its not necessary to cross into it to make the first corner. Also, as an lmp3 driver I ask to the other lmp3 drivers that if your're following another p3, even for position, not to dive into an overtake if there is gt traffic in front. It happened to me at Leguna Seca and caused avoidable contact.

A little late to start suggesting such a thing isn't it? :p
We had 0 problems in the GT3 race yesterday, as long as everyone announces that they are exiting pits on Discord you have more than enough time to prepare for someone coming out of the pits. Having your minimap as well as your relatives on helps as well.
If everyone just uses a little bit of common sense, I'm sure we will be fine ;)
