How much drivers in a single car?
2.4 Driver time regulations

2.4.1
Driver times: One driver cannot complete more than 65% of a race.
Example:

6-hour race, 1 driver cannot do more than 234 minutes out of 360

8-hour race, 1 driver cannot do more than 312 minutes out of 480

12-hour race, 1 driver cannot do more than 468 minutes out of 720

24-hour race, 1 driver cannot do more than 936 minutes out of 1440

As long as these are met, you can have any amount

I just read the rules and I am wondering why you have to be at 80 when the countdown hits 1 at a code 80. Isn't this very counter intuitive? You feel like you have one second left and it makes it harder to judge. Could it not be the same as for the green? So code 80 starts at the start of the word after 1.

Also, For the evaluation races, how many do you have to do? Can you do races in both GT3 and LMP3 and therefore be allowed to start in either LMP2 or GTE?

Furthermore, in the rules it looks like you sign up for a full season but in the forum it says "Malaysia team signup" which indicates that it is on a race by race basis. Which one is it?

Would it be possible for one organization to field two cars in the same class and move drivers between cars if necessary. For example car 1 has drivers A,B,C,D. Car 2 has drivers E,F,G,H. Round 1 all drivers race, Round 2 Drivers G and H cannot attend. Could driver D be moved from Car 1 to Car 2 to make sure both cars have enough drivers?

Are there going to be evaluation races after the beginning of the season? For example: After Malaysia, will it be possible to do an evaluation and race in Le Mans?

Yes! Evaluation races will, however, be held at Silverstone during the weeks leading upto le mans, just due to its track length. But races will continue throughout the season!

Code 80 is in kilometers or miles?

Some drivers were faster than me when code 80 was activated and many drivers were overtaking me.

To release a statement Quote: Due to circumstances just out of my hands, we're gonna have to cancel this week's races again. I understand your frustration. To also state that this will not happen again and next week we'll be 100% good for everything – end quote, we find this statement cannot be trusted, as after the cancelation of week 3 a statement was made to the same effect quote: I will ensure there is cover from now on – end quote.

If you want to be professional, you need to run your planned events, to cancel at the last minute is unprofessional and to do it for 2 consecutive events is absolutely not good enough, therefore our team has made to decision to not to race in your rFactor2 events.

Team Octane Racing
will be pulling out of the series, we have drivers based in Canada, USA, Australia, UK, and New Zealand, who have all organized there time to do the last 2 evaluation racers which have been canceled. It is just not good enough to put up a post at the last minute canceling the race.

I fully understand your concern. I can more than assure you that everyone including me is aware of this.

The issue for the first cancellation was a personal issue that I had to deal with around an hour before the race started. I know you want everything to run smoothly and correctly as you should however as humans I do hope you can understand life can just simply get in the way considering we all have lives outside of simracing (Believe it or not - I certainly don't)
This was what I thought would be a one-off occurrence.

Addressing this weeks cancellation I worked right upto the last couple hours to secure a server for the race etc..... however, this work was tossed out the window and wasted my entire day when it came to no avail. So i understand your frustration about canceling "the last minute" however it was not through any fault of neglect or lack of trying. It was due to payment processing of the server etc...(which btw now has gone through)


I know this isn't good enough. That's why we've got another COD in the works to help share the workload as I do everything myself atm I also know I cannot keep asking for patience that's why from now on we just have to show we're serious from our actions.

How do I register for an evaluation race?

Thanks.
Hi, sorry for the slow response we've been busy around here. You do not need to complete an eval race for Malaysia.
The next time eval races will be held is in the run up to le mans, and when they are released you will see a thread under this sub-forum, and all you need to do is reply to the thread following the template in the title :)

During “Code80” the drivers have to keep the PIT Limiter engaged. Consequently the PIT Limiter’s speed for the current circuit will be the speed you should maintain. In Malaysia the PIT speed is 100km/h

I am sorry to announce that the 12 hours of Malaysia will now be shortened to a 90 minute socials race; this is to amend some technical issues which have occurred.
In regards to the liveries they will be up tomorrow along with the fix for Sim-sync.
Once again I apologise for the late announcement.
