Virtual Online Racers (VOR) is starting its 18th season. Our league is aimed to help beginners but we also have some fast drivers too.
We race on Friday nights, 8:30 PM Central US time and have practice sessions same time on Wednesdays. Our race length aims to be around 50% of the GP distance, but actually we adjust the distance for around a 65 minute race time. We use Intermediate Damage and allow Shift+Rs with stop and go penalties as noted below in the rules.
Season 18 – 69 mod
Jan 30 – Kyalami – 52 laps
Feb 6 – Monaco – 49 laps
Feb 13 – Zandvoort – 50 laps
Feb 20 – Clermont Ferrand (folder clermont) – 19 laps
Feb 27 – Silverstone – 48 laps
Mar 6 – Nürburgring – 7 laps
Mar 13 – Oulton Park (folder oulton) – 45 laps
Mar 20 – Monza – 44 laps
Mar 27 – Mosport – 52 laps
Apr 3 – Watkins Glen – 63 laps
Apr 17 – Mexico – 54 laps
Apr 24 – Montjuic – 46 laps
Our main rules are:
Race starts: We go at the green, but we review the first part of the first lap through the first few turns that we call the Orange Zone (noted in the driver’s meeting notes). Any crashes or passes that cause a crash might be (but not always are) considered dangerous driving and penalties will be assessed.
Shift+R: Any time that a driver resets in the race, a Stop-and-Go penalty must be served the next time through the pits. We feel that allowing resets rather than using the no reset Pro Damage mode gives us a somewhat realistic race simulation while allowing for the problems of online warping etc. This little penalty served during the race will cause drivers to be more cautious as well, we hope.
Just one Stop-and-Go is required per lap, no matter how many resets that you have in that one lap.
