PostSubject: IROC 79 Series @ TORA   Tue 25 Sep 2012, 12:00 am

Just a few words about a spec series I am soon
hosting over at TORA. As the title may imply, its based on the
International Race of Champions circa 1979. Cars are spec built 1979
Camaro Z28s with 450 HP, race slicks/brakes/diff for drivability, lots
of Sport components to minimize tuning, and no aero to minimize the
consequences of close racing.



Here's the link:

http://forums.theonl...-iroc-79-series


A new twist: On the entry form in addition to gamertag and number, there
will be a "League Affiliation" slot, so you are all welcome to
represent EZT. I hope to see many different leagues and series
represented in the inaugural season of IROC 79.

Tracks to include:
Indianapolis GP
Laguna Seca or Infineon Sports Car Circuit
Road Atlanta Full
Sunset Superspeedway

Dates are yet to be finalized, but races are set to be on Friday Nights @ 12M BST/7PM EST/4PM Pacific US/9AM Sat AU.

Spec build is available on my Storefront, however you may "unlock" it to adjust the few "tunable" parts: brakes, diff, air pressure, and final drive ratio.

Race distance is set to be about 45 mins, with a Q + Race timeframe of just over an hour. So 9PM EST should be no worries. I have to keep it that way, done around 8PM EST as that is 1AM BST, and I am expecting a few Brits, as it is on TORA.

I just want to thank the EZT management and mods for letting me post this here. I feel like a jerk for a) not asking prior to, and b) not getting the chance to race in an EZT meet as of yet.

But anyways, I just wanted to say thanks, as I have run into some vocal opposition elsewhere for promoting my series. Which is kinda funny, as some of the little series that have shunned me may be better off numbers wise if they had chosen to jump in and get some exposure via TORA... oh well thier loss. oh yeah, one more

THANK YOU!

I would like to echo the concern over the timing. Those of us here in the US don't have the time to run two events on the same day only two hours apart. Two hours is simply not sufficient time between events to account for any of the hiccups (connection conflicts, lagouts, etc) that can and sometimes do occur with online play which then impacts the length of the race.

In addition, many of the EZT boys like to have the time before the NASCAR race practicing and/or fine tuning their car. If given the choice between an event that part of our chase for the VM Team Championship or an event that is a "fun" event, well...there really isn't a choice.

This is not an evaluation of the event itself. It may be a great event. It's only the timing that is the negative. Wink

Really sorry about the timeslot conflict. If I had known about a NASCAR series on a Friday night, I most likely would have been in it rather than scheduling opposite of it.

Thanks Neo for the VM NASCAR info. I had a blast last night.
Very Happy

Note: there was a full 90 minutes between the IROC and VN races. Plenty of time for test and tune between the two.

Wink

And you guys missed out on an epic fail on my part. I inadvertently hit "-20% Rear Grip" in the Race Set Up menu, resulting in a race that was as slick as the last few laps of this year's NASCAR at the Glen. The oil all over the track made things interesting, and from racer feedback, is something that we may look into adding in a future event as it was an unexpected twist. Laughing
