KSR Fall Enduro Series.

Post by Obsc3ne » Mon Apr 06, 2020 8:10 pm

The KSR Enduro Series returns for 2020! Last run with Group B mod, we're back with slightly less horsepower and GT3 machines.

After a great series using them earlier this year we're now going to put the great S397 GT3 DLC content to good use once again by running them in their natural element, endurance racing. The cars are fantastic and are probably come of the best vehicles on the rFactor platform.

We'll be running at some of the homes of GT endurance racing, all of which provide their own unique challenges.

Required DLC's:
GT3 Challengers Pack
GT3 Pack


Schedule
14th April: Practice Night
21st April: Bathurst
28th April: Sebring Practice Night
5th May: Sebring Race
12th May: Spa Practice Night
19th May: Spa Race

For those unfamiliar with installing non-steam workshop tracks, instructions are below:

1: Download the file from above, and save it into your rFactor 2 Packages folder - this can be found by right clicking rFactor 2 in Steam, going to properties, local files, browse local files.
2: Launch rFactor 2.
3: On rFactor 2 Launcher screen, click on the box icon (second icon on the left).
4: Scroll down the list until you find the track name or filter by uninstalled.
5: Click on the track name, then click on install at the bottom.
6: Repeat Step 4 & 5 for each track.
7: Done!


Race Night Format
7:00PM - Official Practice
8:00PM - Qualifying (15 Minutes) - Full open session, all cars visible, do as many laps as you want.
8:15PM - Warmup\Drivers Briefing
8:30PM - Race Start (120 Minute timed event)

Race Settings
Flag Rules - Black, Blue and Local Yellow (No Safety Cars)
Damage - 20%
Fuel usage - 2X
Tire Usage - 3X
Mechanical Failures - Normal
Time Simulation - Nil
Weather - TBC
Type of Start - Standing
Pit Stops - No compulsory pit stops or tyre changes required

Driving Aids
Auto Blip - Yes
Auto Clutch - Yes
Driving View - Open

Sign Ups & Points:
There is no official sign-up sheet, I will however have a reserved vehicles thread so we don't get too many double ups.

We'll use the RF2 Analyser as we've used in our past few leagues as our points site - Password is wahwahwah

Custom Skins
Are allowed.

Make sure to use a unique naming convention (your in-sim name would be best) so we don't have duplicates.

Voice Communications:
Discord will be required for all racers on the night. You can use this straight over the web, but I do recommend the desktop application.

If you jump on for the first time before the event you won't have speaking permissions. Flick me a PM and I'll assign said permissions

Note to all participants
All participants are welcome and very much encouraged to join regardless of skill level and experience.

Fuel is currently at 4x. You go through a lot of it on the practice server at the moment!

As it turned out I had half the content. I must have bought a pack that had half the cars as well as the endurance pack at the end of 18. So only had ot buy one more pack

Was hoping to get into this tomorrow night but hit a hurdle with the DLC. Got the gt3 fine, installed sweet as. Got the GT3 challenger pack and it only installs the Mclaren then the others report missing files and won't download. Have tried unsubscribing then subscribing again but same thing...mclaren loads and the others stall..... any ideas?
