IFCA AM R1: Spark @ Sebring Race Day Info

Post by AAR ABEnstein on Sun Jul 07, 2013 11:39 am

Hey folks, it's race day for Round 1 of the 2013 IFCA Amateur Forza World Championship!

Here you will find everything you need to know about Round 1:

The Track & Car Combination is Stock Chevy Spark @ Sebring Full.

Make sure you have the correct decals on your car, or you will be disqualified. Details are in the Cars, Tracks, and Liveries topic.

Lobby Hosts: (Originally, these were supposed to be the top 3 rated drivers in each lobby. Now, it will be the people listed below that have confirmed they are racing.)

1: RAFT Veteran
2: EZT Virality
3: UNR DrFujimi
4: Bayless 39


Each host is obligated to do the following:
1. Send each driver in their lobby a Friend Request on Xbox Live; it doesn't matter if they have said yes or no already.
2. Set up lobby with the following setup for Q. Begin inviting drivers at 2:45 P.M. EST. Qualifying should start no later than 3:10 P.M. EST
-Set the make and model to Chevrolet and Spark
-5 Laps
-Track: Sebring Full
-Stock build and tuning
-Disallow Upgrades
-Collisions Off
-Limited Damage
-Compare Best Lap On
-Lobby Points (Make sure it is a fresh lobby..Do not run any pre-race practice.)
3. Set up for the Race, which should start immediately after qualifying when all drivers are ready.
-change from 5 to 20 laps
-Turn Collisions On
-Turn Compare Best Lap Off
(Also, drivers need to pit once after Lap 1 and Before Lap 20. Drivers must call out their pits)
4. Save the replay from both Q and Race and send them to AAR GTDon. Take a picture of the results. If you don't have a camera, write them down. Instruct others to write down times as well in case you miss some.

If there are 4 drivers or less in your lobby at 3:10 P.M. EST, inform your drivers that they have automatically qualified into the next round and that they can leave because Round 1 will not be raced.

Okay then, this is sort of why we didn't want to have an amateur section in the first place. It was suggested back at the time before the 2013 season that such drivers would not be inclined or interested enough to participate simply because of their low participation rate anyway. But we wanted to at least try to make accommodations for the lower/slower among us. I will figure out what to do with those that did compete for the next round grid, and let you all know soon.

Okay, this will be the tentative lobby for next weeks round 2 Sunday race in the 1995 Mustang (on my store front if you don't have it) at Sebring. Only the top 8 will then move onto the 3rd round at Sunset P. Reverse in the Ford GT. I'm still waiting to hear if anyone else showed up before the list is made official.

1. NSA Roca
2. DJProfessorK72
3. RAFT Veteran
4. Maxximillion
5. TheManNowDog777
6. UNR DrFujimi
7. SDRcownuts
8. Kannibal Fish
9. Bayless 39

It's right, but check the Lobby 1 Replay (I'll send it to you, Don, if you haven't received it, yet.). I was "Race Director" today, and I asked the lobbies that didn't race to send me a list of drivers who did show up and didn't leave before the race was cancelled. Lobby 1 did race, and the results are correct.

Don and ABEnstein,

I have a suggestion, if you two are willing to hear it. Wouldn't it serve all parties involved to just have the final round of the Amateur Championship next weekend?

9 versus 8 is pretty irrelevant, and while it may break away from tradition slightly, this way would be beneficial to all parties involved. Racing and qualifying for 90 minutes to eliminate one driver is rather asinine. Chances are that one driver would not show up anyway, and with the disappointing amateur turnout it might just be better to cut your losses and determine who makes the World Championship.

Supposing this would occur, would the final round then be back at Sebring or would we move on to Sunset Infield in the GT's? Those who did race probably don't want to see Sebring for a while, as you could probably imagine from driving such a slow vehicle...

I think so DJ, I think you and Abe are right on this. Let's go for the final at Sunset P. Reverse this Sunday in the McLaren, to decide the top 3 amateurs. They will gain a spot in the pro section for the money in September.

Yes, this is exactly what Don and I have been talking about privately within the last 24 hours.

All cars have the same livery rules; look in the Cars, Tracks, and Liveries section.
