Welcome to NZrFL50! For this league we will be using the newly updated version of the Flat6 mod by EnduRacers. The first round kicks off on February 12th in the Motherland with Monza. After that we head stateside for 5 more rounds of racing.

The cars are extremely fun to drive and have somewhat limited setup options, which should make the racing evening among all participants

Riven has very kindly put a server up already, with the mod and Monza which is Round 1.

Schedule
29th Jan: Official Practice 1
5th Feb: Official Practice 2
12th Feb: Monza
19th Feb: Laguna Seca
25th Feb: Road America
5th March: Sonoma (NASCAR Layout)
12th March: Daytona Road Course
19th March: Portland (There's some information online that this track may not work well when hosted on a server, if testing proves this to be the case it will be replace by Cleveland)

Additional Weight
We will also be utilising a weight system throughout the league based on finishing order of each race.

The amount that is added\taken off will dynamically adjust dependant on the size of the field.

For every place above the midpoint of the field 10kg will be added
For every place below the midpoint of the field 5kg will be taken away

Example:
Race 1
15 paticipants.
Midpoint is 7.5
1st = +70kg
2nd= +60kg
7th = +10kg
10th = -15kg
12th = -25kg
14th = -35kg

Race 2
18 paticipants
Midpoint is 9th
1st = +80kg
2nd = +70kg
9th = No change
11th = -10kg
17th = -40kg

Sign Ups
We will be utilizing the RF2 analyser tool that was used in the Australasian GT3 series last year. This does not require manual sing-ups by drivers.

We will also be running official practice nights on the 29th and 5th to ease us into Tuesday night racing.

I'll be there from about 8, I can add weight to people as wanted, run some short races etc.

I have edited the first post.

We'll be using the RF2 analyser tool for the points this season (same tool as used in the Australasian GT3 series last year).

This does not require manual sign ups on a per-driver basis.

A link will be set up in the coming days and posted for all to view.

Thanks for organising and hosting this series! The weight system worked quite well and there was some great racing to be had! Interesting choice of venues too, the majority were new to me.

Thoroughly enjoyed the racing, thanks to everyone who showed up!

A big thanks to Obsc3ne for running the league. The mod is pretty forgiving and you can really throw the cars around, and the league structure with the weights etc was spot on.
Again thanks to Riven and Inspire, and the guys who competed to the end. ( O_o Looks at Rifty…)
