Hello everyone!

Our tenth and final race of the season in the VLN Series 2019 will be in the snow.
Setups will be default. As a gentlemens agreement, you may change: brake pressure/ratio, fuel level, tyre pressures and gear ratio.
Gear ratio will be a predifined setting and mandatory for all. Setups used should be loose in order to have the same car for everybody.

There will be NO qualifying. A reverse grid will be setup according to driver points and thereafter random grid placement by who first enters the lobby. (explanation will follow in 2nd thread)

Event Information:
● Track:
Nürburgring Combined
Date: 19 December
Lobby opens: 19:45 (UK time)
● Qualifying: NONE
● Race starts:
20:00 (UK time)
● Event car: Ford Escort RallyCross car
● Event format:
  • Qualifying: NONE (I will post the relative starting order as per sign ups on the evening before race night (reversed grid by points and newcomers will start according grid position after all point drivers have formed up.
  • Race length: 90 minutes
In-game time-of-day information (time progression): x2
  • In game date: 25th of December (server settings will be set to Winter to allow a snowy track)
  • in game start time (qualifying): N/A
  • in game start time (race): 08:00 (x2)
Lobby settings:
  • Weather: Clear -> Snow -> Blizzard -> Clear
  • Assists: Realistic driving aids
  • Damage: OFF
  • Mechanical failures: OFF
  • Tyre wear: Authentic (x1)
  • Fuel: Authentic (x1)
  • Setups: Loose Default (however, gentlemans' agreement some tweaks may be done and others are mandatory to do, SEE post below)
Rules and regulations:
  • Track limit and drive-through penatlies: OFF
  • Pit exit penalty: ON
  • Competitive Racing License: OFF
- Start: manual rolling start, no formation lap (See information below!)
- Pitstop: Manual


Manual rolling start:
Due to the length of the track will not have a formation lap.
Drivers (with points) will form up according the reversed grid procedure as published on the day before race day.
All new drivers will hold there grid spot, untill the last driver with points has formed up and follow after as per remaining grid position.
Make sure to familiarize yourself with the rolling start procedure:
(read here or watch the video)

Our workaround is that we get into formation after the Schumacher-S and start the race after the Warsteiner Curve. The acceleration is earliest at the 'line' but NOT BEFORE the last driver of the pack has reported READY.















Formation zone (end of curbs on the left)
Acceleration line (at the line): (wait for the last car to call READY)


Anybody that not have participated in one of the VLN races, look for all pictures, videos and spoilers at one of our previous race thread:
https://apexonlineracing.com/community/threads/vln-series-race-4-23rd-may.54814/


SPECIAL information
Following multiple tests and positive feedback we will keep the second single file formation for the rest of the season untill further notice.
In order give all drivers that occur damage in the first lap a bit of a break, there will be a single file formation at the end of the first racing lap!
For races that are done with damage OFF, the second line-up will help those people that had incidents in the first lap, due to their starting position (reversed grid).
2nd Formation zone will start at around the top of the hill on the Dottinger Höhe (Antoniusbuche) and Acceleration Zone will be out of Turn 1 (Haug-Haken) on the GP Circuit.
During the single file formation, the nr1 car will slowly (no braking just off-throttle) slow down to a certain speed. Pit limiter recommended when using 60kph as a limit!
All cars behind are NOT allowed to overtake when crossing the top of the hill.
They are however allowed to slow down less and join the single file in front of them, even if there is a big gap!
The cars that have damage, may enter the pit WHEN approaching the pit entry. This means NO OVERTAKING during single file!

Small video of single file formation point and acceleration point. Speed will be defined per race (this example it is 60 kph). Important parts at 55s and 2m35s
Single file formation zone (underneath Bilstein board at Antoniusbuche)
Single file acceleration point (out of Haug-Haken)

Point system explained in spoiler below (current drivers standing included)

In order to reward drivers that return to this serie, a point system has been introduced with the first Social race.
This system does not reflect any rankings!
It only awards those drivers that show up for a race, finish them and/or take podium places.
During the 2019 serie, the system will develop and future class selection 'may' depend on the amount of points you have gathered.

For this race, following points can be earned:
Attendance: 1 point
Finishing: 2 additional points
Finishing 3rd: 4 add. points
Finishing 2nd: 6 add. points
Finishing 1st: 8 add. points

Following information is only relevant if we have a full lobby:
In order to keep the system fair and avoid abbusement of points by drivers that already gathered them, there will be a penalty for people who sign-up and not show up (or cancel there sign up less than 12 hours in advance). This penalty ONLY occurs, when there are 30 or MORE drivers signed up ofcourse!
The penalty for not showing up will be: MINUS 2 points, where you can never go below -2!
Current Standings: (will follow soon)

Really funny racing, but apparently, there's no headlights, not even at night.
We doesnt need to roll out in the fullest of fulliest dark timeperiod to fight our lifes, there is a lot of option to have fairly enought light and snowfalls, and viewdistancee too. I prefer some sunset or sunrising timings or we can race with morning to sunset synced well to start in 6 or 7 am ingame to roll over 4-5pm in the race ends, that would the lovelyiest i think.


that music mate XD
i'm diggin' it
I cannot able to drive without some music soo, sorry if you didt find your taste in it, but if you wanna i can send the track/mix/live session if you like it. Its your choice. Me using mute button in many videos of yours too. :cool:

Ok guys, following information for Thursdays race:

In-game race date will be 25th of December. Start time 08:00, time progression 2x.
Weather: Clear -> Snow -> Blizzard -> Clear (sync to race)
Race length: 90 minutes

Everybody selects the default setup (there is only 1) and changes the following (as a MUST):
Final gear ratio: 4:375
Tyre pressures 1.68 front, 1.62 rear (+-0.05 difference allowed)
Tyre either automatic or ICE (automatic should give you ICE)

Following changes are allowed as per choice:
Fuel level (should be full tank), steering ratio, brake bias (I recommend a bit more rear bias than default) and brake pressures.

Following is decided by POLL:
Air restrictor. Full power is available at 30mm, lowest setting is 14mm. My question is, do we want to reduce it to like 22?
I tested this setting and it actually only helps a bit on full throttle to have a more stabile car, top speed is pretty much the same.
With 14 I have the feeling it starts to get a bit too slow.

Any questions and recommendations, please feel free to ask/recommend.
Don't forget to vote!
