The 2012 DTM event (finished) hosted by Zeta0085, sponsored by:

Post by Zeta0085 on Sat 21 Jul 2012 - 3:33

The 2012 DTM event is sponsored by The Forza 4 Regional Championship Series and The Initial Dejected Forza Racing School

The DTM, fun times



Hello all, this is Zeta0085 here announcing an open house styled event by my car club. As Our 2012 season of different styled racing events are coming to a close in September, our car club would love to have some of TORA's members partake in this. The event will take place in One night, and will be a total of six races with a low number of laps. I will be hosting the event at my co-leader's house as his internet connection will be stable enough to host 16 entrants. If more than 7 entrants attend, the race replays will be recorded and made into a form of televised segment similar to what I did in 2010. Wink

Date and time
The event will take place on Sunday, August 5th. The lobby will open at 10:30pm eastern and start at 10:45pm. I am expecting this event to last at most 30 - 45 minutes if everything runs smoothly.

Eastern USA


http://www.worldtimeserver.com/convert_time_in_US-NY.aspx?y=2012&mo=8&d=5&h=22&mn=30 <-- use the second tab to change to your time zone.

- Cosmetic damage
- Grid will be set to random
- End timer will last Two minutes
- Forced stock upgrades

  • 2011 # ' s 2 - 6 Audi A4 Touring Car ((833 PI))

What's not allowed
- Tuning setups
- Upgraded vehicles

Points setup
As our club is chasing the 2012 championship title, any position we finish will affect the standings.
  1. 32
  2. 30
  3. 28
  4. 26
  5. 24
  6. 22
  7. 20
  8. 18
  9. 16
  10. 14
  11. 12
  12. 10
  13. 8
  14. 6
  15. 4
  16. 2

Track list and lap totals
There will be a 3 minute intermission after each race for me to collect and add up the points while allowing drivers to take a small break.
  1. Mugello Club - 5
  2. Hockenheim National Sunrise - 4
  3. Catalunya National - 5
  4. Silverstone GP - 3
  5. Nuburgring GP Short - 5
  6. Iberian Full reverse - 10

Rules
This event is privateer only. I am not allowing teams as this is going to be a max of one lobby.
I ask that the racing be kept as clean as possible. Intentional cause of wrecks will result in a deduction of 2 points per race. If it persists after 3 races, the entrant will be either asked to leave or be awarded no points. If there is lag, the penalty will be waivered.
Even though a headset is required, I still felt the need to point it out Laughing
There will be no warm up lap/rolling start on the first lap. As soon as the timer reaches zero, the race begins.
In regards to custom racing liveries; entrants can use a real life racing livery or something SIMILAR for their car. Just make sure it has that registry number included((TORA, Dekra, or a regular racing number)). If there's a racing livery entrants have made themselves, that is more than welcome.
ONCE 16 ENTRANTS HAVE SIGNED UP, REGISTRATION WILL CLOSE UNLESS SOMEONE DROPS OUT.

Who to contact
Send a friend request to Zeta0085 so it will be easy for me to invite you into the lobby.

Registration
Include the following information:
  • Gamertag
  • Car choice
  • - Optional - Privateer team name

Starting Grid photos
Hi all, time for a request from everyone who's entering. I plan to make a "starting grid" when I'm able to begin recording footage after the event. To give an example of what I'm requesting:



The photo can be taken at ANY track/course with the final livery on the car. Dimensions:

3.0 ft
1.0 x
pitch - 9.6*
yaw - 224.6*
roll - 0.0*

Picture size not important as I can resize them.
I will need the photos before August 5th. You can post them here or via PM. If none are received, then I will take a photo of a white colored DTM car that's being entered.

I currently have 4/16 of the entrants photos.

I added you in for confirmed.



I'm in your series, snapping some pictures.

F.A.Q Time!
Q: Can I use your photos for articles, avatars, signatures or wallpapers?
A: All photos I post are welcome to be used by the community as they so wish. Give credit to your sources and spread the word.  Cool

Q: Why isn't my series included in your photo sets?
A: The reason behind that could be a couple of factors. Either 1) Said series has no replays for me to find on the storefront or 2) I'm busy. No worries, I will get to your series asap.

Q: Where can I find the link to your Flickr gallery?
A: Many ways actually. I normally Hyperlink the galleries when I post in said series, or one can click on the Flickr Icon when I post around the forum. I should also point out some of those photos are posted on the TORA site Gallery  Wink

entry list updated.

This is early to say, I'm hoping this doesn't turn out like the last open house event I hosted. All of the newcomers dropped out before the first race started. : x

We shall see what happens in the final week leading up to the big event.

So, time for some updates.

HeDropsTheSoap has messaged me tonight in regards to attending, it's in the "maybe" category.

Contacted a friend of mine who helped compose a music score for the 2010 DTM event I recorded. He has generously sent me a remix of an old american racing intro. Wonder how it'll sound once I attempt to record some test footage.

Tested all four cars out. Torn between Mercedes and Opel.
Just wondering, you folks base your choice on lap times or how the car feels? While the Mercedes is one second faster than the Opel during my Catalunya National run, the Opel seemed to handle some of the turns like La Caixa better.

Interesting answers, thanks you two.

And because I can, here's the opening I used during Forza 3's DTM event in 2010.
There will be something similar for this year.

Updates Updates Updates!

Our fifth club member Dejected Racer comes out of retirement to participate in the DTM. Excitement level has gone through the roof. Very Happy
I have chosen my car as well. Privateer team name still undecided.
The track list has been re-organized to match the 2010 season.

You don't have to use your actual TORA registration number for this one. It can be similar to the DTM Dekra design or if it even has a racing number on the car, it's golden.

@Deweytee - cheers nice livery.

scratch As I do not have any myself, there are plenty on the storefront made by fellow forza players via the buy designs tab. do a manual keyword search for "dekra" and check out "most downloaded". Or if you want, I can attempt to make one for ya:

That's about the gist of it.
I just realized something... wow I'm an idiot! I forgot we're in -4 for est. Added in an est clock for easier clarification.
