2019 TORA 24 Hours of Le Mans Revisité

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 ACO received an unexpected offer of 100,000 francs from the French subsidiary of the Rudge Whitworth wheels company to facilitate a suitable 24-hour race.  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. 

As far as TORA's 24 hours of Le Mans, this will be the 9th time we have hosted this race.  Sportscar racing is very much in the DNA of TORA and we are glad to be bring this race to the community again.  This is further more a record breaking race for TORA, surpassing the participation record we set back in January at Daytona.  

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 stint 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.  You can see the stint schedule on the stint thread.  Drivers are expected to be familiar with the rules and regulations come race time, so please review them before June 22nd.  Drivers are also reminded that they cannot have a driver double stint between stint 6 & 7 and stint 11 & 12.  

Pit Stops - There are required numbers of pit stops for this race.  For LMP1, that will be 2 stops and for GT that will be 3 stops.  Remember that drivers will not be permitted to drive on the track back to the pit entrance once they pass it.  If they miss the pit entrance, drivers will have to drive around the track again to get back to the pit entrance.  

Stint Starting Procedures - Stint 1 will begin with a full warm up lap behind the safety car, at 80 MPH, concluding with the safety car entering the pit lane, and the field proceeding 2x2 at 80 MPH for a standard start. All other lobbies are instructed to start with a typical 80 mph 2x2 Rolling Start.  Stint 2 through 12 will be a single file start at 80 MPH, starting as cars pass under the Dunlop Bridge as shown below.  Remember that drivers are not to accelerate to race pace until THEY pass the designated start point.

Over the past year, track limits for LeMans have gotten better with Turn10's various updates to Forza 7.  While we did allow some extension/cuts of track limits last year, most of those extensions/cuts are now Forza clean.  So, for simplicity the track limits for qualifying and the race will be FORZA CLEAN.  There are, however, a few things that we do want to highlight.  


Tertre Rouge Entrance/exit

While we have allowed people to cut the entrance to Tertre Rouge in the past, we are going to dial that back and say that you must use the TORA standard of "two wheels over the white line at all times."  The example that is shown below is no longer acceptable.

Tertre Rouge exit, on the other hand, remains as it was before.  You can but two tires over the white line, but they are not allowed to go further than the rumble strip on the outside of the track.  This can only be done during the race as it will dirty your laps during qualifying. The example below is acceptable.

Pit Entrance/Exit

As last year, here is a video highlighting the pit track limits.  All drivers are expected to adhere to the pit entrance line, remain on the paved area in the lead up to the pit entrance, and to observe the blend line when exiting the pits.  Failure to adhere to any facet of the pit guidelines will incur an instant 5000 ft penalty.

Any info on track limits regarding the Dunlop chicane, both Mulsanne chicanes, Indianapolis corner, and Maison Blanche? Or does the "two wheels over the white line at all times" apply for every corner?

Yeah I'm not familiar with Forza Clean since I'm just getting back up to speed with this game, is that when the car cuts a corner and all of a sudden the car almost comes to a complete stop?

No. Turn on the track limits in the HUD, you can see it.
