    Next Race Starts In [​IMG][​IMG]

    Welcome to series 3 "Shaken & stirred" presented by johnboy1112 & gik69.

    STARTING 20TH FEB! Launch night 6th Feb

    After the success of our first 2 seasons and by public demand we bring you S3, Season 3 will see most of the S1 cars with a few extra.
    We will be dumping the PP limit and going back to 591bhp and 1420kg weight,2-3 cars will be at 1450kg to bring them all inline.
    For full car lineup and spec (see post 2).

    Qualification is now a 2 lap shootout! which will be held during the week from Tuesday-Sunday when either me,johnboy,cunny17,racerpaul or kingsakery are present to record your time.
    You will get 1 warmup lap then 2 hot laps,so please get all your testing and tuning done before entering the room. if you do turn up on race night and you haven't put a Q time in then you will start at the back of D2!
    Tyre wear will be off

    Most Improved Qualifier - 1000 ticket
    Best Qualifier - 1000 ticket

    Winner Sprint Race Div 2 - 1000 ticket
    Winner Sprint Race Div 1 - 1000 ticket

    Winner Long Race Div 2 - 1000 ticket
    Second Long Race Div 1 - Any ticket in the game
    Winner Long Race Div 1 - Any ticket in the game + 1000 ticket

    Driver of the day award will be awarded to one driver only. This can be from either Division.



    Race night: !!very important so please read carefully!!

    You will all enter the lobby but once the host resets the track under no circumstances should you enter the track until you have been called up!

    once you have been called up you must go enter the track and stay in the pits.
    once all the weight checks have been done and all drivers are in the pits you will then get called again to go on track in order of your Q time(Just drive to turn 1 and wait there) and you must stay in that order until the race has been started by the host.


    We will still be doing the 2 races per night (sprint & enduro) but race 1(Sprint) will have tyre wear off and will be half points & false start grid!

    Race 2 will stay the same apart from the start which will see a false start check! and reverse grid from race 1 results.
    "Dont forget the 1 pitstop rule"

    Race's will be held on a monday and times are as follows:

    6.30-6.45 ~~ Lounge opens
    7.15 ~~ Race order sorting
    7.30 ~~ Sprint race will start
    5 mins after sprint then the feature race will start

    Real important! We strongly advise that you join the lounge as near to 7pm as possible on race night especially the Camaro and Corvette guys. The heavy cars must enter first in order for the weight regulations to work fairly. A Camaro turning up at 7.20pm for example will be a nightmare.


    Racing Rules:

    D,C'D DURING THE RACE! If you get disconnected from the race and you have completed over 90% you will get 1/2 pts for your place.

    BLACK SCREEN AT START OF RACE! If we start the race and you get a black screen you must send a text via psn to the room host ASAP and they will restart the race.



    Penaltys ~~ Off
    Visual Damage ~~ Off
    Mechanical Damage ~~ Weak
    Driving line ~~Off
    Skid recovery ~~ Off
    Abs ~~ On 1
    Traction control ~~ Off
    Slipstream ~~ Weak
    Grip reduction ~~ Real
    All other aids ~~ Off
    Tyre wear ~~ Off for race 1,On for race 2
    Tyres will be unrestricted
    Strictly no mics!!

    *Bumping is a part of racing, however intentionally wrecking another car is not, and will not be tolerated.
    *With regards to corner cutting issues:
    !!!2 WHEELS ON TRACK AT ALL TIMES!!!

    !! No cutting the white line after pit exit!! !!


    *Any complaints with regards to somebody breaking the rules shall be sent via Personal Message on GTP to me or johnboy1112 and include what we should look for and what lap the incident happened on, so we are sure to keep a close eye for it.
    A first offense will most likely result in a warning, but if the outcome of the race is drastically altered, a points penalty can and will be handed out for a first offense.

    Looking very professional, at the moment it's looking like IS-F(yeah, yeah I know) M3 or Z06. One thing though, are turbos allowed? Because the IS-F has a huge one which might give it more of an advantage, my drag-tuned IS-F has over 800BHP!

    Dont think you can upgrade the Turbo Luke but i will check again.:dunce:

    That ISF that cant corner hehe your words, Nope cant upgrade.

    I've got the IS-F to some crazy power value but it might have been just from the engine tuning.

    Reserves welcome too.:idea:

    Umm, why are there half points? That's not exactly a clear system.
  14. Gedi69

    England Colchester
    PSN:Gedi69

    Because race 1 will have tyre wear off and people have suggested it before.

  15. Carbonox

    Finland Intercourse, PA
    PSN:Carbonox

    Yes but it would be a more clear system if there were only full points (i.e. no 1.5 or 0.5 as the halves make it confusing)...

    A minor suggestion, how about 15-14-13-12-11... etc... etc... for the sprint race?
  16. Gedi69

    England Colchester
    PSN:Gedi69

    Only confusing for me as I will be doing the adding up. It has been talked about.

    To clarify the rules/ point systems/cars/regulations etc etc have been discussed and decided unless we have missed something major this is how things will be.

    I thank you and goodnight.

    PSN:Hancoclc

    Please can you put me down as a reserve!

    Couple of questions:
    Is tyre restriction unlimited in both races and is there a mandatory pitstop? Could qualifying be done one night in the week if a room was available? May save rushing everyone through on Monday night.

    Also I think halving points for sprint race is a good idea but would it be.better to have this as second race otherwise the people who did well in qualify and win race are penalised in second by starting at back for the main event where more points are available!

    PSN:johnboy-1975-

    Yep tyre choice open for both:tup: Whoops yep forgot 1 pitstop minimun for feature race we will update:guilty: If qualifying dosent workout your idea is an option Hanc:tup: Your point about the sprint race is valid although the thought of the quick guys working their way through the field with only a few sprint laps and after a long feature race (personally im knackered!:crazy:) is a little scary:scared: I also feel we may lose a few guys after the feature race who are simply tired or cant be bothered. The sprint was always ment to be a warm up to race 2 hence the half points this season.:nervous:

    Just to add we are not running a mini series between events so a launch night will be sorted before the first race in order to test qualifying/rolling start its new to me for one. Akmuq Luke 101 which one is it cant remember would be good if you could make that to help us through it.

    Wow this is stunningly similar to that series I was planning which I think I discussed with you JB. Might not run it at all as many of the cars and tracks are the same as here, we'll see. Can't make it but good luck fellas :tup:

    Did you Tom? Oh when was that then?:dunce: This is more or less the same as our opening season which was a year or so ago now.:nervous:

    I will announce that Death by Carbon Racing will remain among the teams for Season 3 with BMW being the likely car of choice (as of now). Hoping for the team title now that it's a full season for us :tup:

    Also, teammate revelation likely coming within the weekend... ;)
