    • All qualifying sessions will start from pit road.

    • Time Limit is 6 Min on Ovals and 10 Min on Road Courses.
    • If you don't qualify, then you will start behind all qualified cars in series points order.

    Cautions
    Road races:
    4 or more cars must make contact in a crash resulting from contact; or adverse racing (weather) conditions in general, with or without an accident.
    Oval races: 2 or more cars must make contact in a crash resulting from contact; or adverse racing conditions (weather) in general, with or without an accident.

    If both cars are still facing the correct direction and moving forward, this does not necessitate calling a caution. This would be considered incidental contact or a racing incident. But if it seems warranted based on the amount of contact that took place, call a caution. Calling a caution is the responsibility of the drivers involved. All cautions will be reviewed by the stewards. Calling an unwarranted or incorrect caution could result in either a penalty or a post-race disqualification.

    To call a caution, you must type the letter "C" into the chat box, then you may announce "Caution" over the mic.

    Once the caution is thrown the overall race leader will gently slow down and all cars will group up behind. Any cars behind the incident may pass through. Cars rejoining the track must do so cautiously and blend back in with the field appropriately. After grouping up, all cars trapped between their class leader and the overall race leader (between them in the queue) are to take a wave-by at a specified time (called by actual ARS officials in chat and mic) and catch the back of the line without passing amongst themselves. Drivers that were "punted" on a road course will receive their position back under caution. After this is completed, the pits can be opened for everyone and the race can be restarted after any additional non-pit wave-bys are completed, with the classes separated at the restart by speed.
    • Please signify whether you are pitting or not by moving to the white line on the inside of the racing surface. No last-minute fake outs. If you enter pit lane on the backstretch under caution, you are committed to making a pit stop.
    • Pitting is not required.
    • All cars pit on the same lap, including lapped cars.
    • Entering and exiting pit lane on ovals is done on the backstretch.
    Upon exiting the pits, drivers will line up single file and prepare for the restart. The leader will initiate the restart in the restart zone. Do Not jump the start. Please respect the position in front of you. You can’t pass before you get to the start finish line. There will be no more cautions with 5 laps to go.
    • Caution speed: 50 Mph
    Caution Pit Stop Limits
    • Under the caution flag, you are only allowed 4 pit stops.
    • Under the green flag, you can make as many stops as you want.
    Pit Stop Entry/Exit
    • Typically, we require drivers to make a commitment to pit road when they are entering and exiting the pits. We refer to this as the commitment line.
    • The commitment line for ovals is either a certain corner of the track or a line across the track.
    • The commitment line for road courses is generally the start of the small outlined path to/from pit road.
    • Under caution we require drivers to move to the side of the track the pits are on, so we can see who is planning to pit. We do this to determine if we can go green once we reach the start/finish line. If drivers pit, then we will not go green.
    • Under green flag conditions we will allow drivers to go to the pits even if they miss the commitment line if their car has run out of fuel.
    Points System
    • 20 points to Win Race
    • 17 for 2nd, 15 for 3rd, 13 for 4th, etc.
    • 1 Bonus point: Pole Position
    • 1 Bonus point: Leading at halfway
    • We will be dropping your worst finish or a DNS.
    In case of championship tie after the season finale: 1 Bonus point for most wins in the season. If there is still a tie for the lead, there will be a 5-lap shoot-out at a track the series runs at during the season (will take a vote among not eligible competitors) winner will receive 1 bonus point.

    Teams
    • You do not have to have a teammate to participate in this series.
    • Just tell me a team name and the drivers on the team.
    • No more than 3 drivers per team.
    • All teams must be in the same class and use the same model.
    • Team Points are the total of the top 2 cars added together.
    • You will only receive team points after signing up as a team.

    I've a couple questions. This is a choice of two simultaneous classes? Do teammates have to run same model or class? Are all variations of available models permissible?

    To my understanding this is a multiclass series. As for the oval, I'm not sure. Multiclass racing on an oval is a crazy concept, but if we as drivers are disciplined enough to not use the slower cars as pics (looking at you Logano) then we might be alright.

    Alright Angry, I will get you down.
    Yes, both classes will run together.
    Yes.
    Yes.
    Alright Whitey welcome. I will get you down.
    Alright, I got you. I hope you are able to run the whole season.
    Both classes will be together on track.
    I don't think it will be too bad actually. I tested it out a bit and found that the GT500 cars are only about 1 second quicker a lap.

    Hope I covered everything, sorry about the delay in responding. This weekend I am going away with my wife for our anniversary, so I will probably not be here responding to anything. I will try to get caught up Sunday night or Monday. Lastly, the Lexus and Subaru in GT300 are a little off yet compared to the other 2, so expect to see those change early next week.

    Which layout of Fuji are we using? GT or F? I'm assuming GT but thought I'd check.

    Attention all. Qualifying is now open. You will need to join the club if you are not already a member.
    https://www.gran-turismo.com/us/gt6/user/#!/clubid/1059310/
    Qualifying can be found in the club, as stated in the OP you are allowed 2 attempts. Qualifying closes 2 hours before the race.
    We will be running the full layout, as the real world series runs that layout.

    I noticed it still says TBD for car for me. I'm running the HSV if that's okay?

    Figured I mention that so you can update that whenever you get a chance :)

    Can't wait for Saturday! I plan to livestream the race from my view :cheers:
