Chuck me into the mix
On the subject of long enduros, more than 90mins is a problem for me so without driver swaps I'd have to bail on any races longer than that. Not to say don't run them - just I'll give those a miss myself .
In terms of seeing the full 24 hour cycle in a race I couldn't care less. Basically you'll get some daylight, some long shadows and some darkness. We can do that with 2x time in a 90min race by starting late arvo and it wouldn't stuff up the weather cycles or make crazy unrealistic moving shadow points lap to lap. Rapidly accelerated time to me is so unrealistic it breaks the immersion and feels like an arcade game novelty.
I tend to agree with Neil here. I am not massively into rapid time acceleration.. That said I'm easy as..
Hey Marty, could you change my name to beakeroo instead of breakeroo
Give me a chance to shunt someone before you give me a nickname
Lol I hadn't noticed that, and now you shall be forever known as Breakeroo
What name do you want to run as is it
"shortName":"ROO", (only a 3 letter name for the car display)
If you look in motec the vehicle weight for the Audi Evo is +50-60 KG's over it's predecessor on most tracks. No wonder I can't touch my PB's. I believe running a 2018 non Evo in a 2019 Championship will also come at a cost unless your Andy and it makes no difference what car/year combo you choose..
eh, what to do...?
Going by current poll results qualy start time will be 9pm AEDT. This time fits within 12 peoples votes and only 4 have selected 8.30 or earlier.
It will be a fairly late finish for the Melbourne and Sydney guys but hopefully during the season driver swaps are fixed and we may be able to use them for some longer rounds for guys unable to make all the longer rounds.

Looks like it will be a really good grid for this.
@marty can you set my short name to just MIR please
Quick strat question - the mando stop in enduros - is the 25 seconds fuelling mando on all stops if you 2 stop or just one?
In current rules all fuel stops with fixed time are 25 seconds, real series I think has option for a joker stop or a shorter stop if inside the last hour of the race but thats not in ACC atm.
Can we get @Bueller @Anon666 @jlynn777 and @Mael say what they want on the entry list for their ingame name for the entry list. If you already posted it then I may
Also reminder to all tomorrow night will be a 90 minute pre season endure at Zolder, this will be a final test run prior to the season proper. It would be good if most can make this race to ensure they know what to expect once the season starts the week after.
This will be a 65 minute maximum stint race, Qualifying of 10 minutes will start at 9pm AEDT with official practice starting 30 minutes before this. It will be a password server with the password given prior to the server starting up in the forum and on discord.
OK got it - so if a stop has fuelling - its 25 seconds - if you 2 stop (which I cant imagine being the better option) you dont have to fuel on both stops
I am not actually sure but I assume that if there is a single mandatory stop, with a mandatory fuel stop then this should logically only be forced for that one stop. Any extra stops shouldn't need refuelling but extra stops are rarely a good idea unless the weather turns to . The stops are pretty long and even in a sprint race making an extra stop outside the window for wets is hard to make up the time lost even on much better tyres.
Server 2 has the Endurance race format up as it will be tomorrow and the season even though its a shorter race of only 30 min with a 26 min max stint time. Only 1 mandatory stop for fuel in the race so you can give it a test there if you like. Password for any practice ROOZ servers will remain "rooztest"
That's the race rules for that server the only difference for an endure race night is stint limit will be 65 minutes for those.
Also a regular fixed fuel stop is 25 seconds, tyres are 30 seconds and they do tyres and fuel combined so its still only 30 seconds for both. Sprint rounds will not allow refuelling during the race with just a mandatory stop for tyres in the pit window. This wont allow refuelling even on an extra stop so if your short in a sprint race you need to turn the ECU down if you want to finish.
Don't be stingy with the free fuels, in nearly every fun run at least 1 person runs out of fuel. I doubt anyone has ever won a race because they finished on fumes but many have lost them once they realized they are short and need to fuel save.
