Your trying to postpone a race for a soccer match?? What a joke!!

Is it going to be the same when the World Cup is on, you have a choice, if soccer is more important, watch it, if it matters so much. Its Memorial Day Weekend on Sunday, Indy 500 and Coca-Cola 600, any chance to cancel the sunday racing as well, or have i already thought about that and decided not to bother racing and watch them both instead.

I see your point on this but I have an event with my team this Saturday for the game for example, in which we use it to raise money for our club (we fund it ourselves) so I kinda have to be there. Only heard about it a few days ago. It's the biggest football game of the year and we would be missing a lot of people for this Saturday. We are just being realistic tbh

So you have cancelled the race for a soccer game this Saturday, and decided that running the final round during the TORA Le Mans 24hr race on the 28th June is perfectly acceptable. Nice to know that the priorities are all in place.

There are particular ways in which to get your point across and I certainly don't appreciate the tone in which I received your post. No we did not cancel this weekend for a soccer game (sorry if you don't like soccer). We actually cancelled because we saw an issue with attendance and this was backed up so we've taken this decision to postpone. We see this as a 'logical' move. I don't fancy racing in a lobby with a limited field. If you are concerned about the Le Mans race and attendance then we can of course address this on the week of and see what attendance is shaping up to be.

Next time you may want to raise a point to us in the appropriate manner and offer a solution as we have did not notice that we collide with the actual 24hr of Le Mans which runs for 24 hours anyway and I don't think people will have a problem missing 1 hour of the race now that I think about it.

Thanks for your concern however.

Sorry you dont like my tone, its my opinion, thats the way i always am, im not trying to be a friend, the series calendar states that its a break for two soccer matches, doesnt mention anything about the attendance issues you have now. It just seems odd that you reschedule to clash with one of TORA's signature events, yes its only an hour, but if im running three stints in a 24 hr race, im not going to be looking at popping another hour on top.

Its a shame thats whats happening, but thats life, im sure i wont lose any sleep over it.

You mean the actual TORA event? Yeah it won't clash. We determined this before we announced the event.

Yes the online version, the one where lag isnt as big an issue is the 14th June and yes, i understand the reasoning behind the decision there, which was taken before the series was announced. I lifted this from the TORA TEC Rules and Regulations and according to that and the series calendar now, theres a clash.

Yeah we are not postponing for the 360 race around Le Mans as far as I know. I must talk to him and see what he's done (trash)

If there is enough people doing that race and we find it just then we can postpone but I sincerely doubt that to be the case as the turn out I feel will be poor and people who don't have Xbox One. Also factoring in that people can easily schedule their stints around it I really can't see us postponing but ya never know!

Yeah this race will take place as planned ,clashing with the TEC LM24 is not ideal but as Chris pointed out stints can be planned around both races we also have to think about the amount of drivers that no longer use or have a 360 as the Sebring 12 hours proved we no longer have the numbers we have previously seen in past events.

I don't mean to be disrespectful here with what I'm about to say, but will be racing during the World Cup? I get it that everyone loves football, hell I do, the team I support (Derby County) is playing at Wembley on Saturday, but If this race gets postponed for the Champions League Final (yeah I get it's a big game) but wouldn't this surly mean that races will be postponed during the World Cup? Like I said it's my opnion.

No the only World Cup game clash could potentially be the final race of the season at 20:00 and game at 21:00 but we can look at that one closer to the time as potentially we could move the race forward a hour but lets just wait and see who progresses through the group stage Wink

As for this weekends race it was not postponed just for the Champions league final granted it does play a big part in the decision but there were other factors too much like play off finals and several drivers having other commitments much like myself and Chris and Nathan having other engagements this would leave the night having no official organisation and we know what happens when officials are not present on race day.

Yeah we are postponing for two events and if we start postponing it for everything else external then we may finish this 5 race series by November if we are lucky. I imagine we will stay with out current calender and push on through.
