Welcome to the first round of the 2021 TORA Endurance Championship: the TORA 24 Hours of Daytona Rewind!  We are doing something different this year, getting back to TORA's endurance roots.  Sportscar endurance racing is very much in the DNA of TORA dating back as far as 2012.  The first races took part on Forza Motorsports 4 using some of the same cars that we will see this weekend.  This is the 5th consecutive year that TORA has run a 24-hour event at Daytona, and we are very excited to start the racing this year in a now familiar way.

Qualifying - This will be the typical 1-Hour Endurance Qualifying.  Drivers will have 45 minutes to set their fastest clean lap.  We will be adding the best qualifying results from each team, so remember that more than one driver has to take part in qualifying.  Remember that drivers should be/appear online 15 minutes prior to the start of qualifying, and should keep in-lobby chat to a minimum.  

Race - This is a 24-hour Endurance race.  Drivers will be competing in 12 stints of two hours each.  However, drivers are reminded that the stint actually only lasts 1 hour and 40 minutes. Drivers are expected to be familiar with the Rules and Regulations come race time, so please review them before January 18th.  A reminder that drivers are not allowed to double stint during the halfway point between stint 6 and stint 7 and the final two stints, so stint 11 and stint 12, so we can try and get the race back on track and finish on time.  Drivers are also encouraged to read this: Multi-Class Racing: A Reminder in Etiquette.  

Pit Stops - Both classes will have to do 3 pit stops during each stint. Remember that drivers will not be permitted to drive on the track (and/or grass) back to the pit entrance once they pass it.  If they miss the pit entrance, drivers will have to drive around the track again to get back to the pit entrance.  

Assists - The usual assist limits will be in place for this race.  The only assists that will be banned during this race are stability management, assisted steering, assisted braking, friction assist, and collision assist.  All other assists will be allowed.  


Stint Starting Procedures - Stint 1 will start with a typical 80 mph / 129 kph 2x2 Rolling Start.  Stint 2 thru 12 will be a single file start, starting as cars exit the International Horseshoe (Turn 3) as shown below. Drivers are not allowed to exceed 60 mph / 97 kph before exiting Turn 3. Remember that drivers are not to accelerate to race pace until THEY pass the designated start point.

If anyone has further questions, please post them in this thread.  Good luck, and I will see you all on track.

For qualifying, all drivers are expected to set Forza clean laps.  If you do not set a clean lap, a minute will be added to your time (as per TORA Standard Procedure).

For this race, we are making clarifications as to track limits at specific sections of the track. As standard, 2 wheels MUST remain on track at all times, designated by the lines on the outside of the track.  The only exception is the Bus Stop Chicane.  

Entrance to the Bus Stop Chicane:
This is legal!

I hope this clears this up for everyone!

I'm slightly confused about the stint 2 to 12 starting point. It only says exit of T3, does that mean roll through the entire turn at 60 and go once I'm at the exit kerb? Or can I go once I'm at the apex to get a good exit?

Don't overthink it.
Single file, hold 60mph pace in to the corner and the race starts as you exit.

Single file, hold 60mph pace in to the corner and the race starts as you exit.
If I go to early, it's a penalty, if I go too late, it's a potential crash. That's why I'm overthinking it... well, imo I'm just asking for clarification on what's allowed.
