Please read the GTR24h Regulations carefully as the requirements for participation is based on some minimum laps online.
First of all be aware that this is a LAN event, therefore you and your team needs to travel to Kolding, Denmark to participate. You need a team of 2-5 drivers, but 3-4 is said to give the best experience. It will be a good idea to bring atleast one person as pitcrew to watch the telemetry and warn your drivers about fuel use, tyre wear, accidents on the circuit etc. You can request to be part of a team or start your own by using the forum at www.facebook.com/gtr24h, or you can ask friends and family to join you.
When you have your team you need to start practicing. To get the absolute best result, make a new Windows installation (Vista, 7, 8 or 10), install drivers and Windows updates.
When Windows is up to date and running, install the following:
1. rFactor 2 (Buy now)
2. TeamSpeak 3 (download)
TeamSpeak is software for quality voice communication over Internet and LAN and is used both during practice online and during the GTR24h race event between the pit and the racing driver.
When you are ready to buy your ticket, please go to GTR24h.org/registration. Here you will find three different types of ticket.
Pit Spot ticket: This is the fee to enter a single car / team into the race.
Standard ticket: This ticket gives access to the event for one person, driver or crew.
All-inclusive ticket: This ticket gives access to the event for one person, but also includes breakfast saturday and sunday and dinner saturday.
Be aware that all drivers have to prequalify for the GTR24h event. Therefore it is important that you use the same full name on your ticket and for the rFactor2 profile you will use on the GTR24h.org server. The prequalifying requirements are described in the regulations available from GTR24h.org/downloads.
Our carpack uses cars based on the EGT-mod by United Racing Design. Because these cars are payware, unfortunately we cannot give you access to the GTR24h server without verifying that you own the EGT mod. Fill out the verification form available in the menu on the right of this page and we will send you the password for the server. Once you have the password you can join the server in the rFactor2 multiplayer-lobby and the mod will be downloaded automatically in-game.
If you want to try out how our cars drive you can download the free demo Corvette C6R, before you decide to buy your ticket and the URD mod. This demo car can be downloaded from GTR24h.org/downloads.
Now you can start to practice and develop your car’s setup. Also it’s a good idea to agree on settings for your raceframe – this way everybody on the team will know where the buttons for pit-request, ignition, starter, headlights etc. are located.
Data and Telemetry
Thanks to Lazza’s plugin, rFactor2 can support MoTeC i2 Pro to analyse your race data. You can find help for setting up MoTeC here.
And thanks to Simutils you have a great tool for telemetry data during the race.
If you want to make a skin for your car, you can send the skin to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will check validity of the files, and it will then be included in the carpackage before the event. The deadline for custom skins is 14 days before the event. Templates for the cars and numberplates are available from the GTR24h.org/downloads
When you are going to the event, pack your raceframe of choice and the computer you choose for the race. And perhaps bring a backup PC for the race computer in case of problems. Bring money, airmatress, sleepingbag, towels, soap, toothbrush, blankets and any equipment you want to use in your pit/paddock area (laptops, headsets, ethernet cable (5m) etc.).
The event starts Friday evening with practice time. Teams arrive and set up their gear. The GTR24h hands out a 3×3 meter pavilion tent for each team to use as Pit/Paddock area. People talk and mingle, and you will meet old and new friends :)
