Quick notes on changes:
- Racestart will be set to 13:00 CET/CEST on saturday
- Participation points is given on racestart (exceptions can be made if its a matter of just showing up and escaping).
- New cars
- Cheaper season pass
- Limited divisions

Points:
Season 14 will continue with participation points, each team will receive these (depending on which division) and also points per finish. After every other round, the best and worst scored teams in each class from the last 2 races switch division. (and yes this means one championship per class). Only change here is that as soon as a team enters a race participation points are assigned.

Mod:
We will be using the official Studio 397 endurance bundle. Furthermore wil we be using official and licensed tracks.

Cars:
DPi Cadillac DPi-V.R*
LM-P2 Ligier
LM-P2 Oreca 07
LM-GTE Aston Martin Vantage
LM-GTE BMW M8 GTE
LM-GTE Chevrolet Corvette C7.R
LM-GTE Chevrolet Corvette C8.R
LM-GTE Ferrari F488
LM-GTE Porsche 911 RSR
* when you sign up a prototype you can apply for this car only.

Season Pass:
Similar to last seasons we require season pass, this is to cover expenses to a growing server farm, plugins, commentators, upgrades and other unforeseen updates, however we have reduced the price.
Each driver needs to purchase the Season Pass

IMPORTANT: You are able to gift this to a friend, go to the bottom of the account upgrade page and enter the person into the search box. Hit proceed and then choose the pass he/she should get. DO NOT just transfer money to paypal and ask for users to get upgraded - this will NOT be done!
Season pass´ are ready for purchase now.

Sign-Up Fee:
There is no sign up fee, however there is an ability to buy upgrades:
Basic sign up: No need to do anything but wait until sign up opens
Team deluxe: Early bird sign up - 24 hours ahead of sign up
Team premium: Early bird sign up - 48 hours ahead of sign up, submit livery 3 times during the season, decide what you want on the window file, 10 line up changes.

Required License:
  • Managers are not required to have a license to sign up a team. However, the team manager cannot race or gain access unless they have a license and a season pass.
  • Drivers must have at least License 4 (L4).
Divisions:
Multiple divisions will be used if we are oversubscribed. The entries into each division will be determined by previous results, on and off-track behaviour, ratings and pre-season performance. Also previous seasons dedication (show vs do not show) also weighs in. But we will host preseason events that will be used to make sure everyone will start in the correct division.
Every second race the last 2 races points gets calculated and divisions are re-sorted with standings (after the 2 races, not in total). See rules, points and participation points.
Remind you that lower tier divisions might not get a broadcast but timewise these divisions does cost significantly more time between races, being incident reviews and line up changes.

Pre-Season:
See above, we will host 1 or 2 pre-season events that will be used to evaluate our decisions.

Max Drivers and Teams:
Each division can hold between 40-45 teams. We will be limiting the division count and can close sign up as soon as we reach 1 or 2 full divisions.
Each team can have up to five drivers and one engineer (a special season pass is made for engineers, this is not used for drivers and cant be upgraded).

Team Manager Committee:
We will set up a special forum for team managers

Prizes:
20% of the season pass
will be shared between the winners of each class. Each class will have ONE overall winner.

Classes:
DPi
- This is the premier class, and will only be used if a certain amount of LMP2 teams apply for the spot.
LM-P2 - You must be prepared to make multiple overtakes per lap on slower cars without putting others in danger. You must learn the art of timing your passes to lessen your time loss without affecting the races of others, but also make sure you are not in the way of the faster class.
LM-GTE - This is just as demanding as the other 2 classes, with less grip and a need to keep an eye on your mirrors. Spatial awareness and an ability to allow other cars to pass with minimal time loss are critical skills.

BOP:
The constant talk about BOP will be ignored, we are doing our best to keep cars very close, and will continue to do so. You can pick ANY car you want, do not pick the slowest and then complain about it. Start BOP will be Season 13 BOP with the C8.R added to the mix as well. LMP2 class will be BOP´ed to be slower (as per 2021 regulations).

Broadcasts:
We will provide live coverage of our Division 1 race and division 1 ONLY!
For broadcast purpose each D1 driver/team must have a webcam and stream to a destination we ask - it will be browser based on our streaming software.

Sign-Up:
Opens August 1st at 12:00 CEST.
After this date, we will review and post the final entry list on our website. Please note that drivers will be required to have the Season Pass by this point.

Livery Submission:
Will close 25 August at 18:00 CEST.
  • We do NOT allow any fake sponsorships on cars, only use logo´s that you are allowed to use, we may require to see confirmation on this.
  • Follow albedo rules (basic: don't use RGB below 10, 10, 10 or above 220, 220, 220) (on each template there is a layer for this, place anything below this layer!)
  • Do not resize templates (4096x4096)
Car change:
None

DISCLAIMER:
- While we strive to have track marshall in divisions for all races, there can and probably will be periods with limited live track marshall - a track marshal cant add penalties, cant remove penalties - only review code 80's.
- While we also strive to broadcast D1 all season there could be clashes with real life job
- See "broadcasts" above, read it and understand it.
If you cant agree to the above and feel the need to complain about this, then dont sign up - if you sign up you agree to these terms and conditions!

Definitely interested! I'd prefer an LMP2 over a GTE, but if we can only sign up for a GTE, I'm fine with that as well
