    Track List and Schedule

    The 18 tracks visited are divided by continents, and therefor labelled as "continental seasons". Each "CONTINENTAL SEASON" has an endurance round worth DOUBLE POINTS (dates/order tbd). The list includes a mix of real world and fantasy tracks designed to suit certain cars. This should make for great battles in conjunction with the success ballast of the faster drivers/cars in previous rounds. Each race will be time counted to around 1-1.5hrs with endurance races 1.5-2 hours.

    EUROPEAN SEASON

    (La Sarthe endurance round)

    Silverstone International (time/weather) 38 laps
    Spa Francorchamps (time/weather) 35 laps
    Brands Hatch GP (time/ weather) 50 laps
    Monza GP (time/ no weather) 42 laps
    La Sarthe 2013 (time/ weather) 28 laps
    Nurburgring GP/F (time/ weather) 38 laps

    Circuito de Madrid (forward) 48 laps

    AMERICAN SEASON

    (Daytona Road endurance round)

    Laguna Seca (regular) 55 laps
    Daytona Road (time/ no weather) 50 laps
    Willow Springs (time/ no weather) 48 laps
    Indy Road Course (regular) 44 laps

    ASIAN PACIFIC SEASON

    (Suzuka endurance Round)

    Fuji Speedway F (normal) 52 laps
    Apricot Hill Raceway (time/weather) 54 laps
    Tokyo R246 (forward) 50 laps
    Cape Ring South (normal) 58 laps
    Suzuka (weather) 38 laps


    Points and Ballast Totals

    Each round a unique success ballast system is used for the top 3 (podium) finishers in each individual class. The ballast accumulates each time you finish consecutively on the podium. New to season 4 is finishes off the podium erases only a portion of your success ballast instead of all success ballast. "Negative ballast positions" only take away ballast gained. No car will go below the minimum weight.

    Points scoring is also unique in that certain achievements garner bonus points during and before the race. The totals for each are listed below.

    POINTS PAYOUTS

    Points for regular positions (per class);
    1- 25pts. 2- 20pts. 3- 18pts. 4- 15pts. 5- 12pts. 6- 10pts. 7- 8pts. 8- 6pts. 9- 5pts. 10- 3pts.

    Bonus points (also per class);
    Pole position- 2pts. Fastest race lap- 2pts. Most positions gained- 1pt. Most laps led- 1pt.

    BALLAST SYSTEM

    1st +20kg. 2nd +15kg. 3rd +10kg. 4th -10kg. 5th -20kg. 6th -30kg. 7th -40kg. 8th -50kg.​

    @FreakFromADR Sounds good. Fresh will be in gt1 of course. See if he can be 4x champ. Also, there will be a double championship and I will open a poll for voting on days to run.

    I can confirm GT1 will run medium tires exclusively and GTS will run hard and medium tires at least once during the race.

    Glad you returned! Fresh or I will either be on this afternoon. Just look for the 90's FIA room when you want practice.

    Well, hello. I'm interested as well, fresh and some of the guys know me from S2. And, as usual, I'll be running McLaren, if it's available. :)

    News update;

    The car list is final and the first draft of car specs is up. Also, the rough draft of sign ups are listed in the first post. GT1 and GTS sign ups will be two drivers for each car in GT1 and one driver per car in GTS.

    In terms of vehicle choice, I'll be going for either the GT1 McLaren or the GTS Pagani.

    Great! Its a tough car to get right and the GTR needs good power and hands to be competitive, but hopefully you can do it.

    Hey, guys. I already told Seth, but I'll repeat it here. It is my OPINION that certain cars are improved, it could be entirely subjective, but i managed a lap time in my GTS McLaren on hards that was faster than pre-patch laptime on meds. Juat my two cents, if anybody could verify, that'd be great. :)

    P.S. roderunner, great to have you back. ;)

    Ok, so after testing the cars are pretty good but the R33 tc is just not going to work with how fast the other cars are. So heres the choices; replace it with the GTR Concept LM race car or the Fairlady Z LM. Theres also another car fresh wants to add, the Supra. Theres a couple options, run the Standard DENSO SARD JGTC Supra or the Premium Castrol Supra. He's leaning towards the latter as it was made in the late 90's and its more competitive.

    Give me feedback guys.

    Fairlady Z because it is more similair to the rest of GTS class, also has a more authentic livery.

    The supra case I could
    Be indifferent to, although in S3 the Denso was a contender.
