The Virtual Le Mans Series (hereafter VLMS)



Points:
Points will be scaled to the length of the event.

Mod:
We will be using the official Studio 397 endurance pack

Cars:
LM-P2
Oreca 07
LM-GTE BMW M8 GTE
LM-GTE Chevrolet Corvette C7.R
LM-GTE Porsche 911 RSR

Season Pass:
To cover expenses to the growing server farm, plugins, commentators and further upgrades, each driver must purchase either the VLMS Season Pass or our SRC Season Pass
The SRC season pass will cover all series, special events and anything SRC is hosting. Price is 20 (VEC) 10 (VLMS) or 25 (SRC) euros and must be done through the forum. You are able to buy this for a friend, however you must contact administration staff!*
They are ready for purchase now.

Required License:
  • Managers is not require to have a license to sign up a team. However, the team manager cannot race unless they have a license.
  • Drivers must have at least License 4 (L4).
Divisions:
Unlike VEC, VLMS will be one division only - first come, first served (expect champions of last season). First 40 accepted teams will get a spot.

Pre-Season:
There will be a mandatory practice sessions and a Pre-Season race.
However, teams with the following results in S2 have secured spots in S3.

Winner of LM-P2 and LM-GTE.

Max Drivers and Teams:
The entry list will be capped at 40 entries (first come, first served - with 2 spots reserved for S2 winners).
Each team can have up to five drivers and one reserve driver.

Team Manager Committee:
We will set up a special forum for team managers

Prizes:
Not decided yet, but:
Right now we are working on something else, which we cant say - perhaps this will go through.

Classes:
LM-P2
- This is the premier class. You must be prepared to make multiple overtakes per lap on slower cars without putting others in danger. You must learn the art of timing your passes to lessen your time loss without affecting the races of others.
LM-GTE - This class is the slowest. However, it is just as demanding as the other class, with less grip and a need to keep an eye on your mirrors. Spatial awareness and an ability to allow other cars to pass with minimal time loss are critical skills.

Broadcasts:
We will provide live coverage of our VLMS races

Sign-Up:
Opens July 28th at 15:00 CEST.
After this date, we will review and post the final entry list on our website. Please note that drivers will be required to have the Season Pass by this point.

Sign-Up Fee:
There is no sign-up fee for teams.

Livery Submission:
Will close August 18th at 15:00 CEST.
  • We do NOT allow any fake sponsorships on cars, only use logo´s that you are allowed to use, we may require to see confirmation on this.
  • Follow albedo rules (basic: don't use RGB below 10, 10, 10 or above 210, 210, 210)
  • Do not resize templates (4096x4096)
  • Do not change alpha layer (this is optimized for broadcast)

Yes thats right, we´ve swapped the initial plans of using enduracers mod to this one, several reason where the biggest concern have been BOP.
A few alterations have been made to the schedule as well.
Also note - that the image feature the Norma P3 - but that will not be used in VLMS.

Honestly better lineup then VEC, where the LMP3 and GTE field is so close to eachother and will most likely be messy.
Might have to do both and GT in this one :)

I think it's a good move to stick with the official content, and I fully agree on the main point of BOP.

With not running the LMP3, I can't help but feel the GT3's could have made for an awesome 3rd class in VLMS!

Is the Road Atlanta race supposed to say 1000 miles? That'll take at least 10 hours to complete. A bit out of line with the rest of the calendar.

Would it be possible to have two cars of the same team in the same categorie ?

We´ve had 1000 miles of RA in VEC in previous seasons which was about 8-9 hours, but yes this is the big one in VLMS.

Would it be possible to have two cars of the same team in the same categorie ?
This is a hard one - since teams can simply sign up several times with different names anyways, so cant see how we can "avoid" that. However i would urge to not just sign up and hope the cars can make it all races.
I´d rather have teams considering how many entries they really need to make sure they can do all races - that way people dont take away others chance to race.

It seems Round 6 is missing from the calendar. There's a 7A and 7B, though...

Hello Bernd :)

Just what to clear this out because i didn't saw this mentioned on the rules now.... For this new season VLMS doesn't have the rule of just one driver Licence 1 per team anymore??

Thanks

No limitation, so everyone can sign up with each other, no matter which license you've
