Triple Crown Endurance Series - Round 1 - Spa - Tuesday 9th

Round 1 of the Triple crown endurance series is here!

We're in Belgium, famous for waffles.......and Spa.

Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is home of the Spa 24 Hours, 1000km of Spa, a 25 hours of Spa event and many other events. We're running what is commonly called the modern layout, but over it's life it's had many small changes to convert it from the original 15km layout of certain death to the 7km of probably death we know and love.

Download link

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!

Night schedule
7:30pm - Official Practice
8:15pm - Qualifying (30 minute open sessions - do as many laps as you'd like)
8:45pm - Drivers briefing and warm up (practice your pit stops)
9:00pm - Race Start (90 minute timed events)

Notes for Spa
This version of the track can be harsh on track cuts, so air on the side of caution (like the last league, I'm not going to police curb cutting, but I'm also not clearing penalties). If you run off track on accident slow down as much as possible to negate the track cut.

If anyone is anywhere near you when you are intending on pitting please let them know over Discord.

Fuel usage based on your boost setting can vary a lot here because of the amount of time on full throttle, so have a play with your strategy, there are multiple at play. You do not have to be the fastest to win.

Damage is set to be very low, so even if you have an off, continue....I think you'd be surprised what your result would be.

What date is the race again?

(And what gearing are you using to do that 2:01?? The same as Longford?! :eek: )

Updated title, it's on Tuesday the 9th.

That's full boost, not too much fuel and a lot of engine braking.

Definitely not race pace

For those racing tomorrow, i'll be on at some stage tonight to babysit the server.

If you haven't raced with us before and you'd like to join the discord I'll be able to assign permissions so you can talk to people (reminder you will need this to be able to race tomorrow)

Shame about the turnout...

Besides that, very interesting race. So many different strategy plays on the go. having a look at the stats on the point site site especially around fuel and tires is very interesting reading.

From what i saw it was pretty clean racing all around by everyone, many thanks for that.

Sebring is already up on the server for those who want to run some practice laps.

My apologies to Danman for our little lap 2 incident in T1 - I went for a late apex coming into the corner, he went inside of me for a tight apex and opening wide out of the corner .. and we ended up meeting in the middle! Sorry about that Danman, I hadn't seen you coming through the inside, my bad! :o

Being taken out on the second to last corner of the very last lap wasn't appreciated.
Lost a place as a result.

Fun race, love these cars!

Great qual lap Obsc3ne!

Just needs a league edition that gives some parity to fuel usage/hp.

Yeah that lap was pretty fluky to be honest, the poor engine was definitely put through the ringer.

No. ChrisRX...which gave you the place back that I fought to take.
