PostSubject: TORA Endurance Championship   Tue 31 Jan 2012, 5:53 pm

If you are a lover of mega events then this could be your thing.

The first race is a mere 12 hrs at sebring.

Details taken from their website follows.....

"Welcome to the TORA Endurance Championship, a four rounds series of full
length endurance races designed to test both you and your team to the
limits. For three years now we have run full length races of both the 12
Hours of Sebring and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This year will be no
different, but we will also be visiting Silverstone and the Nurburgring
along the way.

The first event of the year is the TORA 12 Hours of Sebring taking place on the weeked of the 24th and 25th of March.

The race will start at 2pm GMT on Saturday the 24th and end at 2am Sunday the 25th.

Teams can consist of up to 4 drivers. Ideally you want the full four to make
the 24 hours less challenging on yourselves and your consoles. Teams
must drive in the same car throughout the event. If any team members
switch into different cars throughout the race then their session will
not be counted in the team's overall distance. Drivers may enter as
individuals who feel that they are up for the full 12 hour experience or
just want to take part an a couple of the stints throughout the day.

The race will be split up into six stints that will last two hours. Each
stint will be competed by one driver from each team, so you will not be
racing on track with your team mates during the event. Driver changes
take place when the stint is over at the 2 Hour mark, where we will then
go back into the lobby and the drivers and lobby hosts will change
over. At this point the host will enter the distances covered by the
drivers into the database which will be combined for the final results
at the end of the race. The race will be scored on "distance driven"
where bigger is better. To accomodate for the stint changes a 10 minute
turnaround will be applied for 'a pit stop with driver change
simulation' so in reality the stints only last 1 Hour 50 Minutes.

Unlike previous events we will not be following any real life safety cars or
incidents. Saftey cars will not factor into the race as the entire event
is based upon your endurance. If there is a crash you will have to
recover and continue to the end of your stint and deal with any damage
that you pick up. This should be incentive enough to stay out of the
wall. Damage will be set to Limited to replicate fuel and tyre wear.

Qualification for this event will be held throughout the week leading up to the
weekend. Each qualification round will last 45 minutes and drivers will
be allowed to use the sessions as a practice session as well, but any
driver on a hot lap must be given priority and if a driver who is on a
hot lap and is blocked then action may be taken on the offending driver.
The team will qualify as a whole, so out of the 4 possible times that
could be set by the entire team then the best time will be taken. For
example, if Driver 3 sets a better time then Driver 1 then Driver 3's
time will be taken as the best time."

The car list is the same as their ISCC championship so its a mix of P1, LMPC and GT cars.

Is it an anti-enduro thing or an anti-TORA thing? Or just a 'wasn't invited" sort of thing?

I think we could run if we wanted but there's only a couple of us who enjoy endurance

I think it's going to be a busy weekend anyhow

I don't race at TORA any longer on Sunday since it interferes with Sunday dinner. Saturday will be taken up with VM's Classic Series. Wink

I think I know what I said to deserve that. Embarassed

But I fully understand... as I too have found more racing than I have time to race. I just have a hard time passing up an endurance race, as that seems to be my strong suit (the polar opposite of Qualifying which is my weak point)
