    Tonight, Band of Others Blancpain Sprint Series is coming to Monza, Italy! Its gonna be a fast night, so watch out for T1! Added a couple variations to the vote in case you guys would rather skip the first chicane! Hope to see you guys tonight!!

    IMPORTANT!!!
    This is week 5, aka Decision Week! It is also the perfect week to demonstrate why we're locking which car you can score points in. Monza is a McLaren/Mercedes orgy, and Band of Others would like to encourage people to not switch cars every week. Therefore, from this point on-wards, you can only score points in ONE car for the rest of the season! Starting today, you'll have to decide which GT3 "League Car" you'll be scoring points in for the rest of the season. You are still free to change your car in the future, but any qualifying times or points scored with a car that isn't your "League Car" will be voided!

    Based on results so far...

    DRIVERS
    Audi R8
    BMW Z4
    Ford GT
    McLaren MP4
    Mercedes AMG
    This is just an example. It won't be set in stone until after tonight! I'll continue to update this list in future posts!

    League Format
    Open Qualify Session: Full Fuel
    - 7:30 PM EST (60 minutes). Drivers must record a clean lap within 103% of the fastest recorded lap time. Those who cannot do so are placed at the tail end of the field for the Qualify Race.

    Qualify Race: Full Fuel
    - 8:30 PM EST (30 minutes - 10 minute Warm Up + 20 minute Sprint Race). "Opt In" Inverse Grid based off results from Open Qualifier. Drivers outside of the 103% rule are automatically placed at the tail end of the field.

    Main Race: Full Fuel - 9:10 PM EST (60 minutes - 10 minute Warm Up + 50 minute Race). Grid is set by results from Qualify Race. One Pit Stop is required for tires only at the 25 minute mark.

    Pit Window is only 5 minutes in duration.

    Open Setups:

    If you have a good setup please post it here.

    If you are unwilling or unable to share your setup with other League Drivers then you are not permitted to use it during League events.


    Some things to keep in mind for the new season:
    • Car Selection: You have from Week 1 to Week 4 to run different cars, and see which car you plan to run for the season! Starting Week 5; you must commit to one car, and you will only score points in THAT car for the rest of the season. After Week 5, you are allowed to change your car at any time in the season, but you will forfeit any points scored in a race not completed in your Week 5 car.
    • Track Selection: B2O Blancpain Sprint Series attempts to follow the official iRacing Blancpain Sprint Series for its seasonal schedule. However, we may hold a poll offering to change the layout/track pending the following conditions:
      • We want to encourage close and competitive racing, so we may offer a shorter version of a race track to keep the cars closer together. ie, if the official series is at "Suzuka - Grand Prix" Layout, we may offer the choice to run the "Suzuka - East" or "Suzuka - West" layouts to keep the cars closer together.
      • Some tracks bomb with a large portion of the community, so we may fall back on a community favorite if no one wants to run the track that the Official iRacing BSS is running
      • IMPORTANT: The Official iRacing BSS track of that week will ALWAYS be the Default track for the B2O Blancpain Sprint Series, it will ALWAYS be included as Choice #1 in the poll.

    Voted for the Combined Grand Prix, still not sure why :). I hope not too many people vote for a layout without the chicane otherwise I'm gonna have to add down force to my McLaren to stop it from taking off.

    You can just switch me to the Maca now, as it's my permanent switch for the season.

    My apologies all but I simply can't make it tonight. I'm feeling a lot better but still lazying around with the heat cranked and sweating it out, which certainly seems to be helping.

    I'll probably tune into your stream for a bit tonight Zac.

    Good luck tonight all.
