Hello all, I want to gauge interest in a team rFactor2 event one day, as a sort of driver swap taster for those interested in team racing. I'm thinking of something like this:
  • 1 hour race
  • 2 drivers per car, 1 starts and 1 finishes
  • pits open for mandatory driver swap at around half way point
  • Identical cars (GT or Touring) with open setups
I'd like to see a good amount of people interested in this before I go about figuring out how to do it. It'll probably go on sale at some point, so let me know if you're interested but don't own the game yet too.

Think it's always a good idea to have a few practice sessions together and get everyone educated on the sim :D

@Battenberg I guess we are busy enough with VLMS & VEC right now. Postponed to next year, maybe?

I was thinking about this the other day and was about to ask here whether we could organize something like GT Masters or similar. I had some ideas to make it a bit more "surprise surprise":
  • Teams are being set randomly, somewhat like the Pro/Am approach in Revolution Cup, but partners chosen by a wheel of fortune, where the Pro/Am classification is done by time trials.
  • Same goes for the car: Each team gets a car assigned, with the randomizer tuned so that we have approx. the same amount of each make.
  • I would favor for default setups to reduce prep time (as we will still be running PCARS I guess, and ACC is also 'round the corner)

Yep, it's all a bit too nuts right now for this, but I'd like to give it a try at some point just before Xmas, at least before ACC reaches maturity.

As for the format, I was thinking along the same lines as you :) I've not tried them yet, but I think the S397 Radical around Zandvoort would be a good combo.
