In motorsports most things are predictable and influenceable. An engine revved to high will blow up. Wrong tire pressure will lead to a puncture. A disconnect of a driver or another error in our favourite sim-racing tool rFactor is sometimes neither predictable nor influencable. Due to that the race for those corresponding teams were over before it even really started furthermore not being able to finish the race, although they could not do anything against it. But those times are possibly done.
VorteX-Motorsports prepares a little revolution in terms of virtual motorsports around rFactor. At the very first time since misusing rFactor for long distance races it will be possible to let disconnected team drivers rejoin the server within shortest time to continue the race again. VorteX-Motorsports especially developed a concept to implement this in a more or less optimal way. Due to this concept the situation around a disconnected driver will effectively be treated like a heavy crash on the racetrack. Please get all further information to this topic from the VM Sporting Regulations.
All this premieres at April 09th 2011 with the 12h of Sebring 2011 – an event from simracers for simracers. Of course the one and only EnduRacers Endurance Series Mod 1.0 SP1 will be used – and of course absolutely untouched. The indoor developed Live-Timing logs the current overall standings including the lap gaps to each other from every competitor. In case of a driver disconnect the race session can be recovered within shortest time in order to allow the disconnected competitor along with her/his team to finish his race. The regulations are base on the official ALMS ACO-Regulations, modified to the needs of sim-racing. The choice of your vehicle is only limited by a maximum of 10 vehicles per class. Throughout the whole race, there will be a Live-Race-Control which controls and manages the race till the chequered flag.
