DTM/Cossie cup S2

Click the image to open in full size.


Open in YouTube SD | Open in YouTube HD (when available)


Following the 'relative' popularity of the DTM/Cossie cup in FM3 it seemed only right to bring them a little more up to date to 2004/5 cars. There is an exception with the inclusion of the R34 GTR converted to RWD.

This is a fixed build championship with builds availible free from my SF

Final tweaks are about done but cars may have very minor in season tweaks as required. Be aware of this before getting involved and crying like babies. They will be minor in nature 2-3 PI.


Top 3 drivers from race 1 will receive success ballast in the form of 5% bhp reduction for race 2
Cant find setting for this OP but 2 groups needs to added in lobby settings. Group 1 as setting below, Group 2 everything the same apart from - 5% BHP

Cars:
Will update OP to let you know most up to date version on SF
  • 2005 BMW M3 (E46)
  • 2005 Mustang
  • 2004? Mercedes C32
  • 2004? Audi S4 (converted to RWD)
  • 2002 Nissan Skyline R34 (again RWD)

CALENDAR
Season 1:
Week 1 (18th August) - Suzuka West
Week 2 (25th August) - Motegi FULL
Week 3 (1st Sept) - Sunset Full
Week 4 (8th Sept) - Road Atlanta Full
Week 5 (15th Sept) - Sedona FULL
Week 6 (22nd Sept) - Catalunya GP


CHANGING CARS

Drivers are only permitted to change cars after week 3. You can only changed cars once. Bear in mind the car you change to may be subject to tweaks.




SIGN-IN PROCEDURE

The sign in thread will go up approximately five or six days before the race. Each competitor should sign into this thread.

If a driver is unable to race in any one week, he should sign "out" in the sign-in.

Sign-in will close at 7pm on the day of the race. Drivers failing to sign in by 7pm may still be able to race subject to the organiser's discretion (which will be based mainly on the availability of lobby spaces - I'm aiming not to exceed 14 in a lobby to avoid instability). Drivers signing out may nominate their skipped car for that week up to the 9pm race start.

RACE NIGHT PROCEDURE

The host should aim to have the lobby up and running by 8:50pm at the latest to allow time for all competitors to enter the lobby. Qualifying will start at 9pm, or earlier if all competitors have entered the lobby. Any racers entering the lobby after qualifying has started will be required to start the race from the back of the grid.

Each race will last for approximately 25 minutes subject to the conditions below.

LOBBY SETTINGS


QUALIFYING

Qualifying will be in the one-shot format. This means that qualifying will only last for two laps - one outlap plus one qualifying lap. You will be required to decertify your outlap to ensure that only your qualifying lap counts. To avoid numptyism, it is strongly recommended that you decertify your outlap prior to the last sector. The driver with the fastest qualifying lap will be noted by the host to allow the assignment of the bonus points.

PITS

There are no restrictions as to when/IF, or how often a driver stops in the race.

INCIDENTS

All on track incidents involving significant aero damage (in excess of 40% to any one panel) to two or more cars on lap 1 will result in a restart. After Lap 1, a safety car procedure will be in place up 5 minutes into the race (see below).

Please note that this series is being run with limited damage and has quite long races. If you are the type of driver who likes to nudge the car in front or engage in a bit of side-to-side contact, you will almost certainly build up enough aero damage to reduce your performance later in the race thereby hurting your finishing position.

SAFETY CAR PROCEDURE

As stated above, the safety car will be used during the first 5 minutes only of a race.

The lead car will lead the pack around at a safe, steady speed not exceeding 50mph until the entire field is in line. Cars should maintain a safe distance to the car in front and should not engage in weaving or sudden acceleration of braking as this is likely to lead to accidents. Any drivers making a pit stop under safety car conditions must rejoin the field at the back of the pack.

When the last driver has caught up with the pack, he should wait until the field is on a straight before calling go. No overtaking is permitted until the exit of the first corner following the restart.

PENALTIES

In addition to any penalties imposed by the stewards, the following set penalties will be operating:

Failure to decertify qualifying outlap - Driver moved to back of grid. The driver in question will be required to safely make his way to the back of the grid by moving off the racing line from the start and join back up as soon as last player passes them. If this is not safe due to the nature of the track, places will be given up once race commences and areas where safe to do so
Failure to finish race - Driver awarded last place finish. In the event of more than one DNF, places will be awarded in order of driver's leaving the lobby.

For all penalties, the stewards may look at amending or overriding the standard sanction if it is felt there are unusual circumstances.

POINTS
In the unlikely event of there being more than one lobby, there will be a 10 point bonus for each lobby below the lobby drivers are in, with the exception of week 1. For week 1, lobbies will be drawn at random. Subsequent weeks will be determined by the dreaded average points method. Points per race will be as below.

Before you start deleting your saves, go to the dashboard then head off to whichever memory device your saves are on (probably the hard drive). Under Forza there should be a whole load of files/folders which are mainly stuff off the disc but there are also game save, vinyl and tune files in there. If one is corrupted, I think there should be an exclamation mark next to it and you would need to delete that. Granted you lose all of one thing, but if this is what's happened you should at least be able to preserve the rest of your game.

On, and @smokinmasta. In with a rainbow coloured Mustang for this one

Got rid of old tunes to save any confusion, all are called Cossie Final and called Cossie DTM final build in description part.

Perhaps do another test session or 2 during the week?
