TNH Modern Season 18
THN Modern Season 18 (Except on Wednesdays) is here! (Running on rfactor) For season 18 you must pick a boat that has raced in real life (no UHL boats). The season is based on the 2013 season with a total of 8 races. All races will start with qualification at 6:30 Pacific time. We will have one round of qualification, three sets of preliminary heats, a consolation (if needed) and a winner-take-all final. The Gold Cup and the World Championship will have a 4th set of preliminary heats. 80 MPH minimum milling speed will be enforced with 1 warning then a lap penalty. We will again be using the DMZ areas during the milling period. If your caught in one you will receive a 1 lap penalty.
Race dates are subject to change based upon unforeseen needed adjustments or other requests of any regularly attending driver.

I probably won't be able to use Discord since it crashes my game right now.
@cp65 Just a thought....I use discord on my phone versus computer
I hope to do some racing this season. I am open to a few boats.
DegreeMen (going to need some to keep Cool😎) if anyone wants it I'll go
oh boy Oberto. Not sure if the 2013 was U1 or not.
stop freakin call Becon.
I sure like how we try to copy that race year. Have we ever done it that you have to pick boats that ran that year (give or take a year?)
@Aputich If we ran a season where we had to pick boats from a single season, then the amount of boats to choose from would be small, which could mean less participation.
Did some practice laps at San Diego. 51.690. The Hoss is ready.
We did do 1 season of only the 2013 season I think the year that graham trucking was u1 there’s a lot of boats from that season in the game.
Pete Schille says he wants the U-30 Domino's Pizza.
@Mickey that's pretty cool. I am pretty new and have not read all the forums so this may have been a discussion. I think I read there has been some different rules at different times. But am courious on others thoughts on how it was.
over the years (some times it was painful too) the different race rules that were in place in certine decades of H1. Have we replicated different race formats from the year we are replicating. I.E. assigned lanes, or lane choice are a couple that just pop up.
I'd like to know your thoughts.
I think before I started racing rfactor they did assigned lanes. When H1 was doing the 1 minute bouy (my favorite 😁)we did it too.
