**3/10/2008 Update**
We have more drivers than we can fit into one track (which is great!).  We held a chat discussion last week to get some opinions and ideas.  We are going to race as teams, with team members spread out into different race lobby's.  So far there are only 2 lobby's necessary.  Pat will host, one, and I will host the other.  I've added 1m CR to the purse, and the winning team can sort out among themselves how to split the prize.

This time around, we will be racing for points by track time.  Because we may have an odd number of drivers, the best finish time for each track among the team drivers will be submitted for point placement.  For example, if one driver of the teaim finishes with a time of 5:34.057, and the other with 5:28.010, the 5:28.010 will be submitted as the track time for the team.  You will still be racing on a track with other drivers.

Points will be awarded _per track_ on the following scale (a simple -1pt per place):

1st  8 pts
2nd  7 pts
3rd  6 pts
4th  5 pts
5th  4 pts
6th  3 pts
7th  2 pts
8th  1 pt


Cars
Class: Up to B700 (No tuner cars. If you can't Paint the car, you can't use it)

Handling Upgrades: allowed to maximum
No Turbo Upgrades (including intercooler), no superchargers or power train swaps.

Tournament Outline
Daddyplace.com Class B Cup - Start Date tentatively 3.22.08.  Race time TBA.
Purse: 1998 Nissan R390 w/ custom paint/decals/tuning upgrades. 1,000,000 CR
3 Week Season.  3 Race Series per week.

Tracks
Week 1 Series-3.22.08: Silverstone International Circuit 10 laps / Sebring International Raceway 4 laps / Test Track Infield – Black Mamba 4 laps

Week 2 Series-3.29.08: New York Circuit 10 laps / Maple Valley Raceway Reverse 3 laps / Suzuka Circuit West 3 laps

Week 3 Series-4.5.08: Suzuka Circuit East 10 laps / Sunset Peninsula Infield 3 laps / Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca 4 laps

Grid order
Random / Lobby Points / Lobby Points
There will be a 2 minute break between tracks for tuning changes. I recommend you save your tuning setups for each track so you can load them quickly.  Remember, part changes and rebuilds are not permitted for the duration of the tournament.

The 3/10 update has been done because frankly, I didn't expect this many of you daddys to want to join in!  I'm thrilled to see everyone actively participating!  I appreciate your patience and understanding as we tune the event.  I'm learning a lot on what is to be expected and things to consider, while trying to keep it as K.I.S.S. as possible.  Next time we do a series that may require teams, we'll be sure to specifiy team registration so you guys can choose and register as a team of your choice.

Title: Re: DP Class B Tournament (Updated 3/10/2008)
Post by: redxiii on March 11, 2008, 01:33:21 PM
Not this time around, although reasonably if you've got the best time, you are going to likely be up front.
Here's the problem.  Because we didn't specify teams up front, we could possibly have an odd number of racers.  Ideally, if we had even pairs, we could race for position and award points and add them for the team.  But that will leave the odd man at a disadvantage.  So we have to take the highest score out of the 2 team members and use that for points.  Also, because there will be multiple rooms, there is the possiblity to have more than one first place, right?  It's easier IMO to just align the teams by time.

Thanks for bearing with me--it's the first time I've put together a race like this.  We'll handle things differently next time for sure.  The bracket races I have planned after this is done will be much cleaner--scheduling and number of drivers won't be an issue.  Regardless of the scoring,  I would just like all you guys to have fun!

How many more are needed to make even teams?
Title: Re: DP Class B Tournament (Updated 3/10/2008)
Post by: redxiii on March 11, 2008, 04:00:30 PM
 :doh! Just one to make an odd number into an even number :biggrin:
I'd gladly change it to points by position for the team, points awarded per track, with the understanding that no shows means 0 points for that driver.

Magoo,
I have yet to set a time for the races.  Unless I'm mistaken, your 11pm will be 5pm Central (GMT -6), so I would say green light at 5:30 Central.  If you want to commit, we can lock you in and close registration unless we get 1 more verified team (any more than that and we'd have to open a 3rd room and that just screws every thing up.)  That will give us a solid 7 teams.

This is too early for me.  I am  on the west coast and don't normally get home till about 5:00 pacific time on saturdays. I could move that up to about 4:00 pacific but I would still miss the 5:30 central start time.  but could make a 6:00 central start with no practice time.

Post by: redxiii on March 11, 2008, 05:16:20 PM
PM me your available time on Saturday guys and include your time zone.  Too much one way and it's too early.  Too much the other and it's late.  I'm flexible, but I have a feeling that we're going to end up excluding someone either way, but I'd like to accomodate as many as possible.

Maybe since we might have enough drivers for two grids.  One could start earlier and one later . . .

OK good news (good to have some this week), my parents seemed to have purchased a small 17 inch HDTV.  All I have to do is go buy a really long ethernet cable and I should be set.  It will be good to talk to you all this weekend.

Seriously, don't break your back trying to make the race.  We can maybe find a sub if we need to.

I have added one last team to the lineup.  ToddS & cc0724 - Team Epsilon.
Todd & Clay are new to daddyplace, and they both have competetive cars ready.

I have dropped them both into the grids, but if you guys need to switch due to time availability, let me know.

Just wondering...

We can set up these races to allow people to watch as spectators, correct?

If this is doable, I think it would be cool to watch the races you're not involved in.

Does anyone know?

You can, I think it's the last option under multiplayer.  But may only be for official tournament races.  Not sure if you can locate a specific career race though.  I'll be jumping in spectator if I cna though!

Gentlemen, I sent a message to you all on Live. Basically asking each of you to check your cars sometime today and make sure it meets the requirements for the races. They can be found on page 1 of this thread, but here's the main one we need to be sure of

Cars
Class: Up to B700 (No tuner cars. If you can't Paint the car, you can't use it)
HP: 300-400
Handling Upgrades: allowed to maximum
No Turbo Upgrades (including intercooler), no superchargers or power train swaps.

**If your car has turbo engine to begin with your fine, you just can't upgrade any turbo to the car



You may have an upgrade above in your car and not realize it, so be sure to check. Don't need to get DQ'd for a mistake. Any questions, get back with me or redxiii and we'll assist you. Thanks and good luck today

Would you mind elaborating a bit on what constitutes a powertrain swap? Are you referring to an engine replacement?
Title: Re: DP Class B Tournament (Updated 3/21/2008)
Post by: CoachRoach on March 22, 2008, 11:40:20 AM
For most cars there is an option for a powertrain swap (complete engine).  This is not allowed.  All other parts except turbo, supercharger and intercooler upgrades are allowed.
Title: Re: DP Class B Tournament (Updated 3/21/2008)
Post by: Pat on March 22, 2008, 12:06:59 PM
Yeah, so taking a FWD or RWD car and swapping it to an AWD car is not allowed, and vice versa.

Great racing guys. I really enjoyed racing with all of you. Some of us though, needs more practice. Myself included. I am truely addicted to this game.
If I crashed anyone, beleive me it really was out of my hands.
I just wish the system wasn't meesed up on the 2nd week. Points would have been very different.LOL
Conrates to PatATC and Roach. You guys drove like champs and deserve the win.

Next series, we need to have time trials to be able to group guys together, that is if we have teams again. If not then change up the grids for every race. This should allow for different point distribution.

Anyway, When's the next one?! :rce:
BTW, I won't be left at the starting line anymore!LOL

I think next series will be individual, that way if someone can't make the race, or can't get into the room, it hurts them, not two people.
