Thanks for the invite Butch.

 :hmm:  I must ask, is that an r/c turbine powered f86 sabre?   :o  If so....awesome!!  I've been flying r/c for over 35 years, mostly pattern competition!

I'll try to make your event!

Sweet event indeed.

About the plane. Looks more like an addon to FlightX, but the sabre was nice for its time indeed.....

If I were worth a damn as a driver, I'd join in.  Looks like a great event.  

Edit: Just took a look at the rest of your site.  I loved the news articles.  Someguy survives the Caterhams is an instant classic. 

If anyone here is looking for an "Endurance" event.  Go take a look at this.  It's going to be a tough one to complete I think, but most likely one to remember.  If you decide to compete I'll provide the manpers, and a bus ticket for Ms. Alfatina to dress your wounds.

Added my version of a banner to the rFactor forums.  I know how hard it is to organize and pull of an endurance event.  Hopefully a few more will see it this way.  It's linked to this post.  Would you mind posting the details here as well butch?

(Please don't tell Byron I tried to make a banner!)  lol

Hi again

HeatCAN
The avatar I have here is a model in FS9 by Kirk Olsson with Wyatt Fuller skin by BananaBob.
My avatar at SROL is the real aircraft.
Wyatt was a friend of mine who was tragically killed on July 24, 2006 when he tried to abort a takeoff in the F-86. He was leaving from here in Hickory to go the AirVenture06 in Oshkosh. His plane had won reserve Grand Champion in the post WWII era class at AirVenture in 2005.
Wyatt was best know for his Harley Davidson aftermarket parts.
I was going to design a 1/3 scale turbine R/C model of it, but have since lost all interest in the project.

Here are the Race details:
Date - June 6, 2009
Server name - SIMRACEONLINE.COM LE MANS
Mod - ILMS v2.52 Public Edition
Track - Le Mans 1972-1986 1.10 by Virtua_LM
Tyres - normal
Fuel - normal
Damage - 50%
Mechanical Failures - normal
Qualifying start time - 6pm EDT, 11pm BST
Qualifying length - 20 minutes
Race start time - Approx. 6:30pm EST
Race length - 2 hours 24 minutes
Server password - rpm
Manual rolling start will be used.
This race will also run under all the usual SROL rules & regs

Bye for now.

just got the right version of the mod.
just want to say; make sure you read the readme an delete the right files/folders from earlier versions.  :)
happy driving and I hope to be at the race.
I calculated that race start would be at 0.30 at night for me, so I would need some coffee.....

Looks to be a smashing event Butch  :hats off:

ILMS is a great mod, no matter which version one is driving, I love those cars. Le Mans would be a treat, I will try to make it for sure  :)

Good to hear so many are interested in competing. There are some other invitations out, so this might turn into a big event ;)

I made a edit to the first post, listing the classes and cars to choose from.
Please let me know what class/car you are going to run. Feel free to run any class/car listed. I know the confirmed list is low right now, but I will update it as I get the information.

Hey guys, we have a practice server up for this event if you want to get on and have a test of the cars and stuff. The server is currently set up for practice 1 to be during the day/sunset and practice 2 is set up to run at night. It's called SIMRACEONLINE.COM LEMANS. I believe you only need 1 person in the server to vote to advance to next session, so if you feel like some night action you can advance it.

I'm looking into using the safety car for the formation lap because I'm too lazy to work out how long it would take to do the formation lap manually. lol

Hope to see you all Saturday!

Feel free to spread the word about the race, the more people the better! :)

Stephen Bailey

EDIT: we also have a hotlap tracker on the practice server now so you can see how your times compare!

Our main server is now running at Le Mans. Server is called SIMRACEONLINE.COM LEMANS RA (guess we ran out of room in the server name bit lol). The password is rpm.

In a change from the manual formation lap, we will be using the safety car instead to do the rolling start. Having tested it offline the safety car works perfectly well here and runs at 100mph. The formation will be run 2 by 2 but you also need to make sure you stay close enough to the car in front of you to not get warnings for going too slow.

If anyone has any questions then just shout and I'll try and answer them. Hopefully we'll have a good race tonight!  :D
