2010 Endurance Trophy rules

The Legend continue....

Endurance trophy 2010 Endurance trophy rules Old Drivers Spirit : the origins The idea was started un 2007 by Olivier Zaiit, great Grand Prix Legends drivers at the F1Legends.ch championship. Some other drivers (Jura and SdP) also GT Legends lovers decided to join him to create this championship. The first 2 editions (2007-2008) were done on GT Legends, the only game that was able to satisfy our requirements in simulation sensations. In 2009, it was decided to switch to the ISI game rFactor and the Historic GT & Touring Cars mod from Historix team.

The 2010 endurance trophy The 2010 edition starts with the same goals as before : having fun by driving these cars. 2009 was a little bit in trouble. We were not well prepared to switch from GT Legends to rFactor. This year will also not be perfect (there are a lot of bugs in the mod) but we will do our best and at least, we have one year knowledge with the game and the mod and we will not do the same mistakes anymore (but maybe we will do other mistakes).

Endurance trophy A. 2010 news They are important; please read them to avoid bad surprises !

1. Old Drivers Spirit installation A specific installation is now required. We had a lot of troubles last year due to mismatches in some player installations. This year, we will provide all the necessary stuff. So, nothing should change from one player to the other. We fixed a lot a the mod issues (unfortunately not all of them). Due to this fixes, the Old Drivers Spirit installation will not be compatible with others. You will need 2 ou 3 Gb more on your hard disk, but, you should never be rejected from the server due to a mismatch.

2. Team standing Drivers can, if they want (not necessary), create a 2 drivers team. A team standing will be done during the whole season. Think about making a logo for your team !

3. Points for DNF Until now, the drivers who didn't reach the final line didn't got points. In 2010, each driver who drove at least 20% of the race distance will get points, according to his rank. But, the car bonus will not applied if they don't finish the race.

4. Race duration To give the “little cars” there chance, we will only have 1 Hour races. The “biggest cars” usually destroyed they tires quickly, but they were able to be very fast on 30mn races. With 1 hour, more strategy will be necessary. Taking a “big car”, going fast at the beginning and taking care of the tires at the end or taking a “little car” and pushing it the whole race.

5. New cars Ferrari GTB/4 and la BMW 2800 CS (LM72) joined the GTC-TC-76 class. Coppa Mille and Mini Cooper 1310 joined the TC-65 class. Many new skins (made by and for Old Drivers Spirit) are available. Most of them are real cars running in 2009 on historic races.

Endurance trophy 6. Classes To make the race more funny, we changed the class for some cars : - TC-65 gets Alpine A110 and Lotus Elite - GTC-65 gets Porsche 906 and 914 and Ford Mustang and Falcon too - GTC-TC76 gets the Ford GT40

7. Car flip. Each driver who had a car flip must go directly to the pits and do a full car repair (tires and fuel not mandatory)

8. Gamedata check Each race day and before you connect to the server, a GameData check must be done by the ODS_Client2 software. If there is a mismatch indicated during qualifications andor warmup, the drivers woh didn't do the GameData check or who got error during they check will rejected from the server, so that the drivers that do not changed they GameData and do the check will not be penalized.

9. Performances Cars physics got fixed (fuel tank capacity, fuel consumption, engine overheating). All the mod bugs were not fixed, but at least, now all the cars can be used.

Endurance trophy D. Basic rules All the generic rules of an online championship applies here. Fairplay, fun to drive and respect other drivers should be the basic of all driver that want to join our races.

1. In Race The leitmotiv must be : Gentleman Drivers Spirit 1st example : we do not force overlapping. Also if it's on a driver who's many lap behind you. If you push a driver out of the track, you have to wait him (or he said he's OUT) and you restart behind him. If you don't do this, you will get a penalty and will start from the pits at the next race.

2. Chat No discussions are allowed during the official competitions (qualify and race). The authorized messages are : –

PO (Pits out) et PI (Pits in), security when slowing to get in the pits or coming back on track.

The tolerated/advised messages are : - SRY (Sorry) and NP (No Problem) if you push a driver. - OUT to signify to the driver that kicked you that it's not necessary that he continue to wait, you cannot restart. During qualifications If a driver say hello when he join the game, wait the end of the qualifications to greet him back. The end of the race Take care that when you cross the finish line, a lot a driver are probably still fighting on tack. Wait until everybody is finished before chatting. Except specific authorization, a steering wheel is mandatory to participate.

No fair-play Most usual examples : - Winning a place by cutting a corner - Pushing a driver out of the track and don't waiting him. 3. The race is done on track. The grass is not part of the track Examples: Authorized:

Tolerated (but not if regularly done)

Endurance trophy Prohibited

If you are not sure, do not hesitate to ask before, it's always better than claiming after. If the is a claiming accorded to the admins/referee, the driver will get a penalty - He will lose 10% of the first drivers points (6 points). - Starts from the pits at his next race.

K. Standing. The Standing is done, based on the server export files. All the races are included in the general standing. Over the year, and usually during the summer season break we organize “Open Races” and “Fun Events”. Those events are not included in the season standings.

L. Connection issues If at least 2/3rd of the drivers are disconnected, or if the admins/referee decided it the race will be restarted and if the qualification standings cannot be restored, a new 10mn qualification run is done. If one of the race cannot be done due to technical reason, the event is cancelled. Is there is a possibility to postpone the event, the possibility will be used. Of course, an isolated disconnection of a driver will not impact the event.

Endurance trophy This regulation is subject to change over the year if necessary. If this would be the case, you would be informed on the website.
