IMPORTANT NOTE - this event has Pre-Qualification requirements you must meet in order to take part. Please read the Minimum Requirements section below.

Pre-Quali (PQ) is needed if the number of entries for an event may exceed the number a single server can accommodate, and/or if we have set specific PQ requirements for an event. In these cases, a period of PQ will be run prior to the race, usually for at least a week, and if necessary the race will be divided into equal size splits, based on PQ times. See the Driver Briefing tab for details of the PQ servers. In championship events, there is usually a points bonus for being in a higher (faster) split.

This is an overview of the PQ standings for this event, showing only PQ results by drivers who have registered for this event, with a PQ time set in the car they registered. The full PQ results can be found here. If you do not see yourself in this summary, but do see yourself in the full results, check that you PQ'ed in the same car you registered for this event with, and that the Steam GUID you are using for in-game matches the one you registered for this site with. Also note that lap times may not show up immediately in these results, it could be an hour or more before you see your times appear.

PQ Mode
PQ ordering for this event is Fastest Team Stint Average, which takes the fastest average valid stint time for each driver in the team, and averages those times.
Minimum Requirements

This event has minimum PQ requirements in order to be entered for the event. If a driver does not meet these requirements, they will not be entered for the event.

For team (driver swap) events, a team will only be considered to have met the requirements if the minimum number of drivers required for the event have qualified. The minimum driver requirement for this event is 1. Only those drivers who meet the requirements will be able to participate in the event.


The requirement for this event is a consecutive hot stint of 3 valid laps.

The time required is 105% of the fastest PQ time.

The fastest PQ time for the GT3 class is currently 02:17.700, meaning that the required minimum lap time is currently 02:24.585.

These times may change, so you should check back frequently to ensure that you do not need to improve your time.

-- OR --

The alternate requirement for this event is a consecutive hot stint of 5 valid laps.

The alternate time required is 107% of the fastest PQ time.

The fastest PQ time for the GT3 class is currently 02:17.700, meaning that the required minimum lap time is currently 02:27.339.

These times may change, so you should check back frequently to ensure that you do not need to improve your time.


For drivers who have not met the hot stint requirements, the number in parentheses after the lap time is the longest valid hot stint for that driver, in which each lap met the required time. For drivers who have met the requirement, it is how "safe" they are - that is, the gap between the slowest lap in their best stint, and the current cutoff time.

Briefing

Welcome to ACRL's Christmas endurance race in the 2022 Assetto Corsa Competizione season.  This event is GT3 only.

PRACTICE STARTS - after the Kyalami shit show, we decided to run a couple of practice starts before the last event at Suzuka, which proved to be very beneficial - the first practice start had 8 incidents, the second just two, and the real start only one.  So we've decided to repeat this for Spa.  Immediately following the driver briefing, we will ask everyone to stay in voice chat, and join the server.  There will be a 5 minute practice session to allow everyone to get in and get setups loaded, then a race session, with full formation lap and normal start.  We'll wait till the whole field has completed the first lap, then reset, and run another formation, start and first lap.  That server will then be shut down, and the real race server will start, with a 10 minute practice before the real start.

PRACTICE SERVER - there will be a practice server up on a 90 minute loop for the week prior to the event which uses (more or less) the same weather conditions as the race server, so teams can practice driver swaps, and get a feel for the potential conditions.  Password is 'NotSetYet' (no quotes).  The server will be regenerated once per day, using the current entry list.  If you have only just signed up, you will have to wait till the next restart to be able to join the server.

THERE IS NO ATTACHED QUALI FOR THIS EVENT. Pre-qualifying results will be used to set the grid for the race. Ordering will be done by the average of each driver's stint. So for each driver on the team, the system finds the fastest average consecutive X lap stint (where X is the 3 or 5 lap stint outlined below), and then averages those for all drivers on the team. Doing this minimizes the qualifying advantage of having one team member who is much faster than the others.

THIS EVENT HAS PRE-QUALI REQUIREMENTS that you must meet in order to be entered.  You must either record 3 consecutive, clean laps within 103% of the fastest time, or 5 laps at 105%.  Times are recorded automatically, all you need to do is run the laps on our PQ servers, and you can run as many laps as you want - we will automatically find your best stint.  The target times will be frozen 48 hours before the event, so the goalposts don't move at the last minute.  Drivers not meeting the PQ requirements will not be entered in the event and, if this means that the team then does not have the minimum of two drivers, the team itself will not be entered.

The minimum team size is one drivers, maximum is four.  If you need help finding a team mate, visit our Discord channel, and ask in the #find-a-team-mate channel.

Max stint length is 65 minutes, with max total drive time set at 120 minutes for 4 person teams, meaning that one driver could do approximately half the race.  Max drive time will be scaled automatically by the game for two or three person teams.  To avoid a penalty you must pit before the stint timer expires.

There will be live stewarding for at least the first hour of the event.  We will be monitoring the first few laps very closely, and anyone causing incidents on the first lap may be penalized harshly, up to and including a DSQ.  We want to get a clean start to the race.

If you teleport back to the pits at any time during the race session, your race is over.  If you teleport back to the pits during quali, your quali session is over (although you may teleport back to your pit box once you are in the pits), you must not leave the pits again.

 

There are additional briefing notes available to drivers entered for this event.

Pre-Quali Servers

This event has Pre-Quali (PQ), running from 2022-11-20 01:00 AM Europe/Rome to 2022-12-17 04:45 PM Europe/Rome . PQ is used to sort drivers into multiple splits by laptime. You do not need to take any action to register your times, the process is automated, simply drive laps on one of the listed PQ servers.

This event has a PQ requirement. This means that you must meet the requirement(s) specified in the Pre-Quali tab on this page in order to participate in the event. If you either do not set a time or do not meet the requirements, you will not be entered for the event.

PQ server details are only available to drivers entered for this event.

Race Servers

IMPORTANT - this season has mandatory voice briefings for some or all drivers, so the server password will not be displayed here. In order to get the password you must attend the pre-race voice briefing in the #driver-briefing voice channel on our Discord server 10 minutes before the start of practice.

The race server allocation is based on the currently checked-in entry list, and (if the event has PQ) the current PQ standings. These often change rapidly in the last few hours before the race, so check back here immediately before the race to make sure you have the right details.
