    Welcome to season 1 of the GT3 Endurance Championship, We will be using s397 GT3 Challengers Pack which is payware at £13.00

    It is highly recommended you try all the cars before you decide.

    The time frame for this series to start is a bit short (9 february), so the time space to promote this series is small.
    Therefore we need a lot of members to sign up quick to have a decent driver field.
    GT3 Challengers Pack is Payware £13.00 but well worth the money.

    These cars have in the in car/in pit abs settings and TC settings activated.
    I would recommend turning ABS ASSIST off and TC ASSIST off at the server level for these cars.

    The global ABS and TC "ASSIST" would override the in car TC/ABS settings. The way s397 has implemented in car controls for TC/ABS, it is now car specific. So you don't have to specify it at the server level or in the race rules anymore. We should not really be allowing the global "ASSIST" setting at server level.

    ABS and Traction control will be down to the driver they will be not be active on the server :)

    Ok. I hope the TC and ABS assist settings are permanently disabled for rf2 servers going forward for all series. The cars now come balanced with the in car TC/ABS settings in mind.
    I was really disappointed that Low ABS ASSIST was allowed on endurance server season last season. It basically meant the 991 GTE lost it's only advantage against the Vette and BMW. There was no need to threshold brake and you could just stomp on the brakes without fear. It was like my poor little 991 got BOP'ed by John. :D

    Is the formationlap included or excluded from the 75min racetime?

    It would've been nice to get into a different car in all 5 rounds. (I don't care too much regarding championship points in the database if that's the issue)
    In that case one gets a chance to test all 5 cars in raceformat and it will be more worth the money been spend.

    Included in the 75 minutes.

    Money will be well spent as there will be more series.
    We keep to the same make to avoid drivers picking cars for certain tracks.
    I have tested all of the cars they are all very good.

    We could only do this if every car mod was updated to use the in-car capability. I doubt modder's will bother doing that, at least for older mods. I would say in the majority of cases we don't use global ABS/TC anyway.

    Nigel has also found the the TC for the GT3 Challengers pack mod only works offline, but not online. Anybody else found this?

    I haven't driven the cars online yet. If you throw up a server we can try it out this week before saturday. I haven't seen anyone report that on the s397 forums yet.

    This series has a formation lap, On green do not race off the grid stay behind the car in front of you in a single file.

    The pole sitter will do the formation lap not exceeding 100 km/h
    On the last corner coming on to the start finish the race will begin.

    This will also be announced in the warmup session.
