    CLEAN RACING > ALL!

    Why?
    - Most online leagues consist of extremly good drivers only. Whilst that's pretty cool, the ordinary mortals without godlike car control are left behind and that means it's not too much fun for us. Playing with people you know is the fun part and winning is merely a bonus. So if you're some sort of alien (yeah, people like you, shaggy :p): please don't think about participating, you'd only destroy the fun of all the others and be bored.


    How?
    - This series will feature all races from the 2011 Formula 1 calendar. In addition, all aids will be banned with the exception of automatic gearbox and driving line. Additionally, I intend to set the weather to a fixed setting per race - so that everyone knows what's coming up, with no hidden backbreakers. So please post in here or / and shoot me a PM with your PSN and desired team. The AI will be kept out if there are 8 drivers or more but it'd probably not the worst idea to add some AI drivers else.

    I hope it's clear that you have to get out of the way in case you're going back to the pits or just entered the track during the qualifying session. I'm fine if you're waiting near the final corner in advance of your flying lap but please don't block someone by accident. If in doubt, make way. Everyone is free to use headsets and voice but please, PLEASE, keep it to a minimum during the race, such as telling someone you're about to lap to make way in case he doesn't see you.


    When?
    - Every Sunday evening, usually around 8pm GMT (convert to your time zone here). Everyone will have something coming up for the weekend so it's a nice way to spend the last rather boring evening of the week.

    Rules?
    - Platform | PS3

    - Car performance| EQUAL

    - Brake Assist | BANNED
    - ABS | BANNED
    - Traction control | BANNED
    - Automatic gearbox | ALLOWED
    - Driving line | ALLOWED
    - Pit assist | BANNED

    - Rules and flags | FULL
    - Tyre sim | ENABLED
    - Fuel sim | ENABLED
    - Damage | FULL

    - Race length | 50% (event consists of qualifying & race)

    - Everyone is expected to make room if the pass was illegal and the game hasn't penalized you. Same if you touch an opponent by accident and thus spin him off the track. Clean racing is most important.

    - 11/11 setups using the glitch | BANNED

    Everyone who's found to have used an 11/11 setup will be removed from the series and his / her points will be evenly split up amongst the rest of the pack.

    I'll sign up, no way am I an alien.:sly: Wanna team up?

    Maybe Spa, Korea and Brazil would be good candidates for a wet race because there isn't any wet ones in the second half of the season.

    Too bad the time zone difference because I would love to take part in a series like this. I don't mind racing the Shaggies, Aliens, etc., but is nice to have someone to race instead of follow :)

    Oops, I actually wanted Monza & Korea to be wet races. Fixed. :D


    We can always have a race or two, Jacques. It's not the same but I'll add you on PSN. :)

    I'd say so if there's less than 8 drivers - unless people would want the AI to stay out of the way. :)

    As much as I'd love to join, I don't think I'll be to make the races if they're at 7-8pm GMT. :nervous:

    Me as well, I think I'd fit right in here! But the time zone difference for me wouldn't work out.

    Would have been good to team up with Tom too.

    What Akmuq said unfortunately :( What about Sunday during the early say 5pm or something?

    I may be pulling out of TOCA all together for this season at least as I think I'm off fishing this Saturday and at the High Speed Ring I'm available but for the next two meetings I'm in Spain, this is unless neljack can cover for me..

    Guys, I still intend to organise the 8th championship still, and it will be on the old Sunday schedule. So don't give up hope just yet if you can't make this one. But I'm waiting for the game to be patched first.

    As for this, not sure.
