Grab your diary and make a note of the PitCrew Halloween special event coming your way in Assetto Corsa Competizione.
Here at simrace247.com we like to shout about our league partners with their events, race reports and more. Now as you would expect with all great sim racing leagues, special events are always one to keep an eye on.
For some who cannot make a full season in a series, special events are an open door for people to join in on with the communities that host such events.
Introducing the Halloween Special By The PitCrew
Last year, we went to Spa-Francorchamps for a Halloween themed FUNdurance event, which is very similar to an Endurance event, however for drivers looking for a more casual take.
This time, we’re going to the home of Halloween, Britain (not England, because it’s Celtic and originated in Scotland)! We’ll be heading to Silverstone, for a race in the middle of the night, with the livery theme being: HALLOWEEN!
This is the second time we’re running a Halloween Themed Fundurance, and you can expect them every year, last year we did the famous 82 car fright-fest that was Spa, and this year, we’re going to Silverstone for a 2.4hr (144min) FUNdurance race!
How Do I Sign Up?
How Big Can The Teams Be?
Teams of 1-2 drivers are allowed to partake in the event, so come and see if you’ll get a trick, or a treat with a friend, build a livery and run it for a 2.4hr race around Silverstone, with live commentary at https://twitch.tv/thepitcrewtv!
We have a trick in store for everyone that races, however, but you’ll have to be in the race to find out what that is, you won’t know what it is until around about an hour before the race, not even the staff members know, so keep your eyes peeled and be sure to have plenty of practice before the event, because you never know what might happen!
What Is A Fundurance?
A fundurance event is where all of our stewards and staff are also invited to be out on track, joining in the FUN, which means there’s no live-stewarding, however as always drivers must follow our rules and regulations!
Drivers must pre-qualify as per a team hot-stint format, which will be open before the event, allowing for all drivers to get some practice lapping on track, as well as set their “Team Stint” times for the grid formations.
Drivers who have to change their drivers after the qualifying closes will have to serve a “Pit Start” which means they’re unable to hit DRIVE when on the grid, this is to ensure that anyone who changes drivers isn’t getting an unfair advantage subbing in a driver who is much faster than the team stint that they did to qualify to get themselves into the FUNdurance grid.
The race will have a 10-minute practice session beforehand to ensure everyone is on the grid and registering to their cars, the main driver who signed up to simracing.gp must join the server first, as it will NOT be restarted unless a lot of teams have an issue, this is because the race is a FUNdurance event, and we don’t want the event to continue on far too long.
After the practice, a 2.4hr race will start with a rolling lap as per standard ACC starts.
The race WILL be a night race, so ensure that you have your lights bound!
What About Incidents?
Incidents as always are reportable if there is any intentional driving to ruin another’s experience, we will operate a 0 tolerance policy as we always have here at ThePitCrew and all incidents can be reported to the post-race stewards.
Teams of up to 2 drivers can participate in this race!
Signup is first come first served and you must have done a qualifying lap on the looping practice that will run up until the event to get into the race server, if there is an overwhelming signup amount, we will be removing drivers who are outside of 110% of the class leaders lap time, so ensure you put in some practice!
