TORA Endurance Championship: Le Mans 24 Hour Drivers' Briefing

Post by BIGBEN0913 on Thu 25 May 2017 - 3:00


TORA Endurance Championship Round 1: 24 Hours of Le Mans

Welcome to the third round of the 2017 Season of the TORA Endurance Championship! Here we are, ladies and gentlemen.  The BIG one.  While there are other 24 hour endurance races around the world, none of them are nearly as famous nor infamous as the 24 Hours of Le Mans.  This races dates back to 1922, when the secretary of the ACO, Georges Durand, received an unexpected offer of 100,000 francs from the French subsidiary of the Rudge Whitworth wheels company.  The first 24 hours of Le Mans took place on May 26, 1923 with a field of 33 cars of 18 different manufactures.  The rest, as they say, is history.  

Qualifying - This will be the typical 1-Hour Endurance Qualifying.  Drivers will have 45 minutes to set their fastest clean lap.  We will be adding the best qualifying results from each team, so remember that more than one driver has to take part in qualifying.  To sign up for qualifying, please use THE QUALIFYING THREAD.  Remember that drivers should be/appear online 15 minutes prior to qualifying start, and should keep in-lobby chat to a minimal.  

Race - This is a 24 hour Endurance race.  Drivers will be competing in 12 stints of two hours each.  However, drivers are reminded that the race actually only lasts 1 hour and 40 minutes. Drivers are reminded that they are to use THE STINT THREAD to assign stints to each of their drivers.  Drivers are expected to be familiar with the rules and regulations come race time, so please review them before June 10th.  


*UPDATE* In order to keep the race running on time, we are not going to permit drivers to double stint between stint 5 and 6, and stint 11 and 12. 

Pit Stops - The FINAL required number of pit stops for each class are as follows: 7 for LMP and 4 for GT.  

Stint Time and Conditions:
Stint 1: 15:00 - 17:00 (10:00 am - 12:00 pm) - DAY
Stint 2: 17:00 - 19:00 (12:00 pm - 2:00 pm) - DAY
Stint 3: 19:00 - 21:00 (2:00 pm - 4:00 pm) - DAY
Stint 4: 21:00 - 23:00 (4:00 pm - 6:00 pm) - DAY
Stint 5: 23:00 - 01:00 (6:00 pm - 8:00 pm) - NIGHT  
Stint 6: 01:00 - 03:00 (8:00 pm - 10:00 pm) - NIGHT
Stint 7: 03:00 - 05:00 (10:00 pm - 12:00 am) - NIGHT
Stint 8: 05:00 - 07:00 (12:00 am - 2:00 am) - NIGHT
Stint 9: 07:00 - 09:00 (2:00 am - 4:00 am) - DAY
Stint 10: 09:00 - 11:00 (4:00 am - 6:00 am) - DAY
Stint 11: 11:00 - 13:00 (6:00 am - 8:00 am) - DAY
Stint 12: 13:00 - 15:00 DAY (8:00 am - 10:00 am) - DAY


Stint Starting Procedures - Stint 1 will start with a typical 80 mph 2x2 Rolling Start.  Stints 2 through 12 will be a single file 60 mph start, with the race starting as cars pass under the Dunlop Bridge.   Remember that drivers are not to accelerate to race pace until THEY pass the designated start point.  


If anyone has further questions, please post them in this thread.  Good luck, and I will see you all on track.

Are there no restrictions on double and or triple stinting certain stints?
As I remember from other 24 hour events we were not allowed to double stint some certain stints like in the at 00:00 in order to keep the delays to a minimum.

OP updated.  Sorry, y'all.  I forgot to add the double stinting rule in when I wrote this initially.

Could you please tell me what car needs to stop roughly every 6 laps? Because last time I checked none of the three (Toyota, Audi or Porsche) did.



Feel free to add the ribbon for second place in Teams of PCARS Spec Cup Season 4 *wink*

I tried the audi before and only can do like 4 or 5 laps. The car consumes as 20% fuel every lap

Then the new X-Class tune for it made it awful in gas mileage. Excuse me, I meant Diesel Wink

Which brings me back to my question why the Audi's tune was changed in the first place lol!


Our crew mechanic already filed his resignation for TEC after this race, when he heard about this (last minute) decision Very Happy
