TORA 24 Hours of Le Mans - Rules and Regulations

Post by LMR Deftone MX on Thu Jun 06, 2013 2:45 pm

Welcome to the 2013 TORA Endurance Championship - the ultimate test of team work on Forza Motorsport 4.

The second event of the year is the TORA 24 Hours of Le Mans which takes place on the weekend of the 29th and 30th of June.

The race will start at 2pm BST on Saturday the 29th and end at 2pm BST Sunday the 30th.

Teams can consist of up to 4 drivers. Ideally you want the full four to make the 24 hours less challenging on yourselves and your consoles. Teams must drive in the same car throughout the event. If any team members switch into different cars throughout the race then their session will not be counted in the team's overall distance. Drivers may enter as individuals who feel that they are up for the full 24 hour experience or just want to take part an a couple of the stints throughout the day.

Drivers Championship

Each round of the TEC will score towards the overall Drivers Championship. Drivers will gain points for where their Teams finish overall.

Team Championship

Each round of the TEC will score towards the overall Teams Championship. Teams must use the exact same name throughout the entire TEC to continue scoring points. If a Team name change occurs for the next round then this will be classed as a new Team and will not tally up with the previous round. Drivers are not forced to race in the same team for the entire year, they may change out when required. Cars will be effected by the rules below.

Car Choice

Car Choice will be locked-in for Teams over certain events. Sebring and Le Mans will share the same Car List, and a Team that enters into Sebring must use the same Car for Le Mans. Teams may break apart to change cars for Le Mans after Sebring, however this Team will be seen as a new Team and will not be allowed to continue scoring points for the TEC Teams Championship.

Silverstone and Nurburgring will also share the same Car List - albeit different from Sebring and Le Mans - and the same rules will apply. Teams that choose a car for Silverstone must use the same Car for Nurburgring. Teams may break apart to change cars for Nurburgring after Silverstone, however this Team will be seen as a new Team and will not be allowed to continue scoring points for the TEC Teams Championship.

Round 3 will have a free choice of cars as the Car List will be different from either two already set Car Lists.

Race Rules

The race will be split up into six stints that will last two hours. Each stint will be competed by one driver from each team, so you will not be racing on track with your team mates during the event. Driver changes take place when the stint is over at the 2 Hour mark, where we will then go back into the lobby and the drivers and lobby hosts will change over. At this point the host will enter the distances covered by the drivers into the database which will be combined for the final results at the end of the race. The race will be scored on "distance driven" where bigger is better. Driver must stop where they are on track at the end of each stint for their distance to be recorded by the Lobby Host. To accommodate for the stint changes a 15 minute turnaround will be applied for 'a pit stop with driver change simulation' so in reality the stints only last 1 Hour 45 Minutes. The final stint will be a similar to the previous stints, however the timer will be extended to the full two hours. When 2 hours is reached all drivers will stop where they are on track and give their covered distance to the Lobby Host. Once this is recorded the field will then cruise round to the start line to finish the lap they are on - this is only for TV purposes and not how the race will be scored.

There will be one mandatory pit stop per session.

The first stint will start under a Rolling Start following standard TORA procedures. The lead car will take the grid around at 80mph Maximum and will then slow down to 60mph for the last section of track where the cars will line up 2x2 in their qualifying order. For the remainder of the stints, the gird will be set by doing 1 lap around Camino Mini. The grid will be taken by the overall finishing positions from the previous stint. The grid will then be set to Lobby Points with a 1 second roll off for the stint to commence.

Safety cars will not factor into the race as the entire event is based upon your endurance. If there is a crash you will have to recover and continue to the end of your stint and deal with any damage that you pick up. This should be incentive enough to stay out of the wall. Damage will be set to Limited to replicate fuel and tyre wear.

Qualification for this event will be held throughout the week leading up to the weekend. Each qualification round will last 45 minutes and drivers will not be allowed to use the sessions as a practice. The team will qualify as a whole, so out of the 4 possible times that could be set by the entire team then the best time will be taken. For example, if Driver 3 sets a better time then Driver 1 then Driver 3's time will be taken as the best time. Each driver may only compete in one qualifying session. There will be lobbies hosted throughout the week to accommodate racers in European time zones and American time zones.

- Collisions will be set to off during all Qualifying sessions.
- Collisions during all races will be on.
- Damage will be set to limited.
- TCS, Driving Line and Normal/Simulation Steering are the only allowed driving aids that may be used. ABS, STM, Auto-brake and Auto-gears are prohibited. Manual gears must be used but it is up to the competitor if they wish to use the clutch or not.

Livery Requirements

- Its not offensive
- It doesn't include any direct tobacco sponsorship
- It has sponsors

There will be mandatory Numberboxes for the TEC in 2013, and these will be distributed when requested in the Livery Thread.

Car Numbers

Each competitor in the team must be registered with TORA and have a TORA Race Number. This is for admin purposes only. The number that is displayed on the car during the 24 Hour event must be one of the competitors TORA numbers who is present within the team. Whichever driver's number the team uses is up to you.
