    Other Notes:
    • You must be an SRP Licensed Driver to take part in this event.
    • Be very careful on the opening lap. Brake very early to avoid other cars as you will have cold brakes and cold tyres.
    • The main funnel points at Ruapuna is T1 and 3 at the hairpin. After that it should have panned out into single line.
    • You can find the SRP Teamspeak details: (HERE)
    • SRP Racing Rules: (HERE)
    Additional Notes:
    • You will be allowed to use the RS500 Liveries but you will have to use the 1987 RS Engine (restricted) 370 BHP Endurance engine instead of the RS500 (Eggenberger) Engine.
    NOTE: If there is a major pile-up on the opening lap, the race will be restarted. This is only because it is a special event and it would be heart-braking for those involved in the incident to be out on Lap 1!

    See you on track!

    Specific Rules:

    • Qualifying for the event, apart from the Top10 Shoot Out, will be taken car of on the 9th of February and the 13th or 14th of February. These will take place over 1 hour with Unlimited Laps.
      A specific thread for this will be posted soon.
    • The Top10 Shoot Out will be run in an Inverted Order, from 10th to 1st from the Previous two Sessions. The first driver should leave the pits within a minute of changing sessions to Qualifying. Then the next driver on the list will be allowed to leave the pits once the driver on track has passed the Start/Finish line to start his/her Hot Lap.

      A Post will be posted in both the Race Thread and the Qualifying Thread showing where everyone qualified and the order at which the Top10 should be run.

      The other drivers in the server may not run any laps during the Top10 Qualifying.
    • The concrete outside of the kerb on the exit of some of the corners on the track is counted as kerbing. You may therefore place all for wheels on kerb and concrete but you must be inside the white lines with 2 of your wheels when the concrete and kerb end.

      Out of the last turn, you may not go outside the white line on the outside unless you have to do so to avoid a crash.

    Helping Notes:

    - I can not find the server, what should I do?
    There are a couple of ways to solve this.

    One is to find this file: YourrFactorInstall/UserData/YourName/Multiplayer.ini
    And look for a line saying: Concurrent Server Updates: (Number, Default 400).
    Change that number to 1000 or maybe even higher. This will allow your install to show more servers in the server list.

    Another way is to sort the Server List by Race Series. What you'll be looking for is: Touring Car Legends

    A third way is to use the Server IP which is:
    To enter this click the Blue + at the top of the screen on the Join page in-game. Enter the IP and it should show the server.
    [EDIT: if the port number above doesn't work, try 34397 or 34447]

    - How to I change the RS500 's and Corolla Levin 's Engines?

    In the Page where you chose the car you want to use you have a few tabs just above the vehicle list that says: Team/Vehicle, Information, Skins and Upgrades. Click the Upgrades Tab and then Open the Engine Tab. In there you will have 2 different engines. Purchase the Appropriate Engine there, this works the same way as purchasing the vehicle itself.

  18. Stefan Beemsterboer Licensed Driver

    Can't get the TLC.exe ??
  19. Jonatan Åcerclinth Licensed Driver

    That is a problem of the server where it's stored (security software stops it from being downloadable).

    Will got on top of it in a minute, look at the Alternative Download for that.

    In the meantime, check if you can get the other files please.


    Alternative download for the main installation added to the Opening Post.
