DRM - Rules DRM81

1981 DEUTSCHE RENNSPORT MEISTERSCHAFT
& DEUTSCHE RENNSPORT TROPHÄE



DRM History

In the 1970s, the premier national championship in West Germany was the Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft, better known as the DRM. First held in 1972, it featured a mixed field of GT and Touring Cars, with two displacement divisions but only one overall championship and title. Blessed with the support of the many top teams and constructors based in Germany at the time (BMW, Ford Köln, Porsche, and tuners such as Schnitzer, Zakspeed, Kremer, Eggenberger, Koepchen,...etc.) the series was an instant success and had some huge and competitive fields which attracted "kolossal" crowds and produced some intense racing.

1976 saw a major change in the International racing classes, with most notably the introduction of the famous Group 5 Special Production Cars (better known as "Silhouettes") to replace the fading 3-litre Sportscars as the top class for International Endurance racing. This controversial new category, which featured highly modified production-based cars (either GT or Touring Cars) was litteraly imposed to the racing world by the German constructors Porsche and BMW through their intensive lobbying of the CSI (Commission Sportive Internationale, the sport's governing body). It was therefore only logical that in 1977 the DRM switched to Group 5 rules.

While the Silhouettes produced some of the dullest fields and racing ever at World Championship level, it was much more successful at national level, in Germany of course but also in the USA via the similar IMSA GTX class. The DRM fields while not always great in quantity were always very impressive quality-wise, with the typical DRM race usually attracting a better field than any WSC event. The best argument against Silhouettes was of course the huge cost involved in building and running these turbocharged monsters, and very few teams could afford them. The more civilised Group 2 (Touring) and Group 4 (GT) cars were also allowed in the DRM but had of course absolutely no chance of winning against the Silhouettes, so in 1979 the German authorities instated the Rennsport Trophäe for them to compete in. The RT cars raced with the Group 5 cars and were eligible for DRM points, and in fact made most of the DRM field as by 1981 there was only a handful of works-supported Silhouettes regularly entered in each of the two DRM divisions.

The 1981 season which we will be running this year was the last of the Group 5 era, the Silhouettes cars being replaced by the new Group C Sports-Prototypes both at World Championship and German national level in 1982. The DRM had three years of Group C racing before the Group A Touring Cars took over in 1985, the DRM becoming the DTM which still exists nowadays (or so I've been told).

HSO 1981 DRM Mod

We will use the HSO DRM mod for rFactor. This mod combines the Group 5 of the original DRM mod by Dennis Matzies, and the Group 4 version of the BMW M1, based on the Procar mod we used in 2011. It also includes an exclusive car, the Porsche 930.
First, install the DRM REVIVAL mod, Patch DRM Revival 1.1, and HSO DRM mod.
==> DRM Revival 1.00 <==
==> Patch DRM Revival 1.1 <==
==> HSO DRM <==

HSO Mod Credits :

This special version of the DRM Mod was made under the supervision of BITDT's Alberto Ibañez (skins, modelling, physics), with the help of Carl Larrad (skins), Gianluca Desposito (skins & modelling) and Karel Marciniszyn (modelling).
Beta testing was carried by Carlo Pozzi, Steve Parker and Jukka Maatanen, while the historical research was by Frank Verplanken. HSO admins Antoine de Mautor, Guillaume Siebert and Ben Paulet all also helped at one stage or another of the mod.

Available Cars

33 cars are available (12 Group 5 cars and 21 Group 4 cars).

The Group 5 cars includes the various versions of the Porsche 935 Turbo, the Ford Capri III Turbo and the BMW M1 Turbo, as well as a couple of non-turbocharged M1s.
Group 4 is almost BMW M1 spec class with only a few Porsches (930 or 934) facing them.

Car choice is free. However the administrator can refuse to grant a driver a car that -he thinks- is too fast for him. In this case, the driver will have to choose another car.
Changing of car during the championship will be tolerated under exceptional circumstances only. Also, in the event of a driver announcing his absence to a given race, his car will not be made available for another driver.
Please book your car in the dedicated thread : Entry list

Championship Rules

The championship will be run over 13 meetings, held on Wednesday nights, with each meeting hosting one race of roughly 40 minutes. Both categories will run together in all the races.

Two distinct championships will be held : the DRM and the DRT. All 33 cars are eligible for DRM points, while only the Group 4 cars can score in the DRT. Only drivers will score points, there is no championship for constructors or teams.

Both the DRM and the DRT will use the classic "Can-Am" points scale (20-15-12-10-8-6-4-3-2-1 to the first ten).

All results will count at the end of the season (no dropped scores).

Event Schedule

All meetings will be held on Wednesday nights (all times given as CET)

20:00 - Qualifying
21:00 - Warmup
21:15 - Race Start

Starts will be given standing on the grid, after one formation lap.

Behaviour on Track

A few behaviour rules :

- as for all HSO races, it is required you use your real name both in-game and on the forum. Thank you.

- Chatting :

Chatting is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN in and race sessions.
It is allowed in qualifying sessions for technical issues.

- Drive Through :

If a driver has to do a drive through, even if there is no pit lane speed limit, he has to drive through the pitlane at 100km/h max (60mph). If he doesn't respect this, he will get a 40s penalty at the end of the race.

- Shortcuts :

If a driver gains a position after shortcutting a turn, he is required to give it back as soon as possible. In the case where a driver would not do it rapidly, a 30-second penalty will be added to his total race time. In the event of abusive and intentional shortcutting, severe sanctions will be applied (up to definitive a ban from the league). To make sure you never shortcut a turn, try to always keep two wheels on the track.

DRM - Rules DRM81

1981 DEUTSCHE RENNSPORT MEISTERSCHAFT
& DEUTSCHE RENNSPORT TROPHÄE



Historique du DRM

Dans les années 1970, le principal championnat national en RFA était le Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft, plus connu sous le nom de DRM. Organisé pour la première fois en 1972, il était initialement réservé aux voitures de Tourisme et de Grand Tourisme, séparées en deux divisions de cylindrée mais disputant un seul et unique championnat et titre. Grâce au soutien des nombreux constructeurs, préparateurs et autres équipes de pointe basés en RFA à l’époque (BMW, Ford Köln, Porsche, Schnitzer, Zakspeed, Kremer, Eggenberger, Koepchen,…etc.) le championnat fut un succès d’emblée, attirant une foule de spectateurs grâce à ses courses palpitantes.

En 1976 eut lieu un changement radical dans les catégories de course internationales, avec notamment l’introduction du nouveau Groupe 5, celui des voitures dîtes de « Production Spéciale » (plus connues sous le nom de « Silhouettes ») qui étaient censées remplacer les prototypes de 3,000cc en tant que catégorie reine de l’endurance internationale. Cette nouvelle catégorie, très controversée, mettait en lice des voitures issues de la grande production (voitures de Tourisme ou de Grand Tourisme) sur lesquelles de nombreuses (et coûteuses) modifications étaient autorisées. Littéralement imposées au monde de la course automobile par le lobbying intense des constructeurs allemands sur la CSI (Commission Sportive Internationale), les Silhouettes furent bien entendu adoptées pour le DRM dès 1977.

Si au niveau international les Silhouettes n’ont jamais vraiment satisfait les amateurs d’un vrai, grand et beau Championnat du Monde comme à l’époque des voitures de sport et autres prototypes, elles ont par contre trouvé au niveau national quelques oasis de compétitivité : en Allemagne bien sûr, mais aussi aux USA via la catégorie GTX du championnat IMSA. Dans le DRM allemand les Silhouettes tenaient le haut du pavé, et ce dans les deux divisions. Si les plateaux n’étaient pas toujours pléthoriques la qualité était toujours au rendez-vous, et la plupart des courses du championnat avait un plateau plus fourni que de nombreuses épreuves du moribond Championnat du Monde. Le meilleur argument contre les Silhouettes est celui qui eut finalement raison d’elles : les énormes moyens financiers nécessaires pour pouvoir disposer d’un matériel compétitif. Par conséquent, de nombreux teams se contentait d’aligner des voitures du Groupe 2 (Voitures de Tourisme) ou du Groupe 4 (GT) contre les monstres du Groupe 5. Evidemment beaucoup moins performantes, ces voitures n’avaient aucune chance de battre les Silhouettes et en 1979 fut instauré au sein du DRM un « Rennsport Trophäe » qui leur était réservé.

La saison 1981 que nous allons disputer cette année fut la dernière édition du DRM réservée aux Groupe 5, puisque les nouveaux Sport-Prototypes de l’excellent Groupe C furent introduits en 1982 tant au niveau du championnat du monde que du championnat allemand. Après trois saison le DRM passa aux voitures de tourisme du Groupe A et il est depuis 1985 connu sous le nom de Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft, le célèbre DTM qui existe paraît-il toujours de nos jours.


Mod HSO 1981 DRM

Nous utiliserons le mod HSO DRM pour rFactor. Ce mod exclusif compile les Groupe 5 du mod DRM Revival de Dennis Matzies, et la version Groupe 4 de la BMW M1 basés sur notre mod Procar utilisé en 2011. Il comprend également une voiture exclusive, la Porsche 930.
D'abord installer le mod DRM REVIVAL, puis le patch 1.1, et après le mod HSO DRM.
==> DRM Revival 1.00 <==
==> Patch DRM Revival 1.1 <==
==> HSO DRM <==

Crédits Mod HSO DRM

Cette version spéciale du mod DRM Revival a été supervisé par Alberto Ibañez (skins, modelling, physiques), avec l'aide de Carl Larrad (skins), Gianluca Desposito (skins & modelling) et Karel Marciniszyn (modelling).
Beta testeurs : Carlo Pozzi, Steve Parker and Jukka Maatanen
Recherche historique Frank Verplanken.
Les admins HSO Antoine de Mautor, Guillaume Siebert et Ben Paulet tous ont aidé à un moment ou un autre du mod.

Voitures Disponibles

33 sont disponibles (12 Groupe 5 et 21 Groupe 4).

Les voitures du Groupe 5 sont la Porsche 935 Turbo, la Ford Capri III Turbo et la BMW M1 Turbo, ainsi que deux BMW M1 atmosphériques.
Le Groupe 4 est quasiment exclusivement compose de BMW M1, avec seulement quelques Porsche 930 ou 934 comme rivales.

Le choix de voiture est libre pour chaque pilote. Néanmoins, les admins se réservent le droit de refuser à un pilote une voiture qu’ils estiment être trop rapide pour lui. Dans ce cas le pilote devra choisir une autre voiture.
Le changement de voiture en cours de saison ne sera toléré qu’en cas de circonstances exceptionnelles. De plus, si un pilote devait manquer une course sa voiture ne sera pas mise à la disposition d’un autre pilote pour cette même course.
Merci de réserver votre voiture dans le topic dédié.

Règlement Sportif

Le championnat se disputera sur 13 courses, disputées le Mercredi soir, chaque course durant environ 40 minutes. Les deux catégories courront ensemble dans toutes les courses.

Deux championnats distincts seront organises : le DRM et le DRT. Les 33 voitures disponibles peuvent toutes marquer des points pour le DRM, tandis que seules les Groupe 4 marqueront en DRT. Seuls les pilotes marquent des points, il n’y a pas de championnats ou coupe pour les constructeurs ou les écuries.

Le DRM et DRT utilisent le même barème, le traditionnel «Can-Am» : 20-15-12-10-8-6-4-3-2-1 aux dix premiers).

Tous les résultats comptent en fin de saison (pas de jokers).

I was wondering if the podiums in DRT are counted in the driver's statistics? DRM - Rules 18590 If there are two championships, then there are two podiums but I don't see that the HSO driver statistics are updated with the podiums achieved in DRT, probably because rFactor results exporter only counts the overall podium of the race?

Yes the sub-class podiums are not counted yet. It's complex to code, I have an idea how to do it but this could take time.

My notification was copied from a post by Ben in the other forum. It's Ben's fault and everybody knows it :D
