    Schedule Cobra Ferrari Wars.jpg
    Races will be held each Sunday starting at 17:00 GMT, then from 30th March inclusive at 17:00 BST (16:00 GMT). The race meeting will last between 1.5 and 2 hours. There will be three races each of approximately 15-20 minutes. 6 minutes of practise will be held before each race. i.e. one race for each championship.

    Each race will be on Race Hard Tyres with no driving aids except ABS which most drivers set to 1, edge grip will be real and race starts will have false start check. Penalties weak and damage light, slipstream real, no boost.

    We have been racing every Sunday for over a year now, all drivers are expected to drive in a considerate, careful and mature manner. All ability levels are welcome, from beginner to advanced.

    Drivers will change their car selection after every three meetings e.g. Cobra for first three meetings, then Art Morrison Corvette for three meetings or for World Classics race series e.g. BMW 507 for three meetings, Corvette C2 for three meetings.

    The car list will be subject to change with reasonable notice in order to keep the races fresh and interesting.

    All Drivers are expected to follow the hosts instructions regarding the race meeting at all times.


    The Cars: - No wings or spoilers

    Paint should be in age appropriate colours e.g. solid or metallic only, no chrome or polarized finishes
    Wheels should be age appropriate e.g. standard, spoked, American Racing or Torq Thrust in standard size - if wheels or colour are inappropriate the host will request that the driver change them before the next round.
    Where possible bumpers should be removed in order to enhance the race look (this should be done to the Mercedes Benz 300 SL, Shelby GT350 and Shelby Cobra)

    Bonnets if lightened must be in body paint colour

    All cars have been tested and found to be of similar performance, but there will be slight differences - to preserve the attractive look and feel of the races we want to have a wide variety of cars.

    Please indicate which car you will be racing in the Cobra v Corvette cup.

    Please indicate which car you have selected for the World Classic car championship.

    Car choice will be subject to a first come first served basis and a balance of cars will be maintained by the host.

    Cobra v Corvette Cup - either car (NB you will change to the other car for rounds 4-6 etc.)
    Shelby Cobra (not chromeline) - credits 530,550
    Art Morrison Corvette - credits 725,000

    Any tuning allowed subject to minimum weight of 1240 kg and maximum power of 453bhp.


    World Classic Car Championship - Any one of the following cars (NB you will change to another choice of car for rounds 4-6 etc.)
    Ferrari 250 GT 1961 - credits 7,500,000 (or Toyota 2000 GT 1967 - credits 160,000)
    Chevrolet Corvette Coupe (C2) 1963 - credits 84,890
    Shelby GT350 Mustang (not GT350R) 1965 - credits 50,000
    Jaguar E Type 1961 - credits 50,930
    Chevrolet Corvette (C1) 1954 - credits 100,000
    BMW 507 1957 - credits 85,000
    Mercedes Benz 300 SL 1954 (not chromeline) - credits 237,690
    Pontiac Tempest Le Mans GTO 1964 - credits 52,600 (this 8th choice was added as we now have a full grid of 16 drivers: there should be two examples of each car on the grid).

    Any tuning allowed subject to minimum weight of 1160 kg and maximum power of 315bhp. NB all the cars can tuned to these levels except the Toyota 2000 GT which with an oil change and full tune will reach 288 bhp, however testing has shown it to be comparable to the Ferrari 250 GT and it has been introduced as an alternative to the Ferrari for those who are short on credits.


    One Make Showdowns
    The car for rounds 1-3 will be the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Racer Concept 1959 - credits 500,000 - weight minimum1160kg, maximum power 315bhp. NB this car is won as a prize during the Goodwood races in A Spec.

    The car for rounds 4-6 will be the Lotus Europa Special 1972 - credits 38,500 - weight/power/PP to be advised

    The car for rounds 7-9 will be the Lamborghini LP400 1974 - credits 216,600 - tuning prohibited, body colour and wheels standard

    The car for rounds 10-12 will be the BMW 2002 Turbo 1973 - credits 56,800 - weight/power/PP to be advised

    The cars for further rounds To Be Advised.


    Championship Length
    Each championship season will run for 6 rounds, then a new series of championships will commence.


    Photographs
    Photographs of the race action are encouraged. Race reports and photographs taken by the official race photographer (IfandOr) will be published in this thread.


    Signups
    Please sign up by sending a message to Sick_Cylinder via your Playstation 3. There will be 16 regular drivers in the championships.

    Absence / Unable to attend races
    If you know that you will be unable to attend certain rounds please inform the Host. It may then be possible for a reserve driver to fill your slot on the grid. If you no longer wish to participate in the championship the first reserve driver will fill your grid slot and will drive the same type of car.

    Reserve Drivers
    If the grid is full you can sign up to be a reserve driver. You will be able to race when a regular driver is absent and the grid therefore has a vacant slot. If a regular driver leaves the championship you will be offered that drivers slot and will become a regular driver using the same type of car as the original regular driver was using (or was scheduled to use).


    Questions
    If you have questions regarding the races or comments about quality of driving or other problems etc, please raise these with the Host Sick_Cylinder via your Playstation 3 or via the conversation facility on GTPlanet.

    Postings on this thread should be reserved for race photos, race reports or helpful tips on cars in the car list.


    Room Etiquette / Talking
    If drivers speak to each other they should use the PSN name even if they know the drivers real name. All conversations should be in English. Some talking is ok, but no babbling (excessive talking) during races please as some drivers may find it distracting. This also applies to the host who should refrain from babbling during races!


    Race Room Settings

    Start type = Grid start with false start check (this means hold car still with brake until start)
    Grid order = Fastest First (this means start in order of practise lap time)
    Boost = off
    Penalty = Strong (this means avoid crashing or short cutting the track)
    Tyre / Fuel depletion = very fast (this means try to avoid drifting round corners)
    Grip reduction on track edge = real
    Minimum number of pit stops = 1
    Require tyre type change = off (this means you can stick with race hard tyres)
    Race finish delay = 180 seconds (there will be a wide range of abilities of driver)
    Visible damage = off (this prevents spoiling the look of photos)
    Mechanical damage = Light (if you have a crash the damage will repair itself)
    Slipstream strength = Real
    Tyre = Racing Hard
    Nitrous = Prohibited
    Vehicle Tuning = No Limit (but check BHP and weight limits and PP limits)
    Skid recovery force = prohibited
    Active steering = prohibited
    Active stability management = prohibited
    Driving line = optional
    Traction control = prohibited
    ABS = optional

    PITSTOPS - IMPORTANT INFORMATION

    There will be one compulsory pitstop to change tyres in each race.


    If you fail to take a pitstop the game will automatically give you a 50 second penalty.

    You can take your pitstop on any lap apart from the last lap.

    If you take your pitstop on the last lap the host will give you a 30 second penalty (Unfortunately this is necessary due to an error in GT6 which fails to conduct a proper pitstop on the final lap).

    No pit stops will be held if the track does not have pit lane (e.g. London) and tyre wear will be slowed from very fast to fast.


    Championship points

    We will use the MotoGP points system as we have in previous championships as this awards points down to 15th place as follows:

    1st = 25
    2nd = 20
    3rd = 16
    4th = 13
    5th = 11
    6th = 10
    7th = 9
    8th = 8
    9th = 7
    10th = 6
    11th = 5
    12th = 4
    13th = 3
    14th = 2
    15th = 1
    16th = 0

    There are three championships running simultaneously, therefore there will be three champions crowned every six weeks although it is possible that one driver could win all three championships. In the event of a points tie the champion will be the driver with the greatest number of 1st place finishes - if this is tied, it will be the driver with the greatest number of second place finishes etc.


    Manufacturers Championship

    For the World Classic Car Championship a Manufacturers Championship will be in place - the highest placed car of each type will score points and after 24 rounds the result will be declared.

    For the Cobra v Corvette Championship a Manufacturers Championship will be in place - the highest placed car of each type will score points and after 6 rounds and 12 rounds the result will be declared.

    Bad internet connections / PS3 Problems

    If the Host is disconnected by an internet or PS3 problem, the Deputy Host (IfAndOr) will Host the meeting.

    If a driver leaves a race after it has started due to an internet or PS3 problem he or she should send a message to the Host who will award points equivalent to a last place finish in the race.

    If a driver has a bad connection such that his or her car is lagging excessively and unpredictably the Host may ask the driver to leave and re-enter the room.

    To reduce the risk of bad internet connections all drivers should empty their system cache before the race meeting starts.

    Practise - A series of practise races will be held on Sunday 9th March at 17:00 GMT - these are not part of the championship, but are an opportunity to check room settings and cars if drivers wish.

    With effect from Round 13 and running until Round 24 the Cobra v Corvette Championship is replaced with the "Cobra Ferrari Wars"


    The car selection is based on the cars entered for event four of the "Guards International Trophy" held at Brands Hatch during the late summer bank holiday weekend in 1963. During the mid-sixties this event was one of the biggest in the UK and attracted cars and drivers from all over the world including virtually all the F1 drivers.

    In 1963 the car list included one Corvette, one Cobra, four Jaguar E Types, two Aston Martin DB4GT's, five Ferrari 250 GTO's and one Ferrari 250 GT. The up to 1600cc class was dominated by Lotus Elans which will be our one make car for rounds 13-18. For rounds 19-24 we will use the TVR V8S in tribute to the 1964 TVR Griffith 200's which competed in 1965. You can find out about that car and support the suggestion by clicking on this link:


    https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/tvr-griffith-200-1964.300485/

    You will not need to buy any Ferraris or other high cost cars to take part - you will be able to use the Corvette C2 and Jaguar E Type if you are short of credits.

    Your car choice will depend on your championship position at the end of round 12 of the Cobra v Corvette Championship as shown in the spreadsheet.

    Cobra Ferrari Wars 2.jpg

    Cobra Ferrari Wars 3.jpg

    explanation: If you finished the Cobra v Corvette championship in 1st place you will use a Cobra for rounds 13-15 followed by a Ferrari 250 GTO OR Ferrari 250 GT OR Jaguar E Type for rounds 16-18 followed by a Chevrolet C2 Race Car OR C2 road car for rounds 19-21 followed by a Ferrari 250 GT OR Jaguar E Type for rounds 22-24.

    If you finished the Cobra v Corvette championship in 2nd place you will use a Ferrari 250 GT OR Jaguar E type for rounds 13-15 and a Cobra for rounds 16-18 etc.

    Schedule for Rounds 13-24 has now been added

    June 8th will be a Test Day, with short races enabling people to test the cars to be used in the new "Cobra Ferrari Wars" Championship. Round 13 will be held on 15th June and will be held at the Brands Hatch GP Circuit.

    September 7th will be a Test Day, with short races enabling people to test the cars to be used in the new "Ford Ferrari Wars" and "Historic BSCC" - Those championships will start on 14th September 2014 at a circuit to be announced and will run for 24 rounds.

    World Classic Cars

    The following basic setup for the cars in the world classic car list will give satisfactory results, but obviously tune / adjust to suit your driving style:

    Suspension - Race soft works well with the race hard tyres - if you are an expert tuner you can use the custom suspension.
    Brakes - Racing brakes 7 / 4
    Body - stage 3 lightness then add ballast - most of these cars are front heavy so you can ballast up to the weight limit and get closer to 50 / 50.
    Differential: Custom 10 / 25 / 15 - if spinning out on acceleration from the apex increase centre figure from 25 - normally no more than 30 is required.
    Power - increase to power limit or just above then use the limiter to reach the power limit.

    GT6 Classic Championships The Look.jpg

    The Look Part 2.jpg

    We are holding races for classic road cars and classic race cars and are trying to recreate the look and feel of 1960's SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) meetings and the meetings of other national sports and saloon car racing bodies. Cars must therefore be painted in appropriate colours - either original paint or solid or metallic paint. Wheels must be appropriate to the age of the car - either original or wire spoked or American Racing or Torq Thrust etc - if in doubt please send a message to your host Sick_Cylinder.

    Unfortunately PD have not given us the ability to add a race number to the doors of our road cars (hopefully this will change soon in an update). It is important to have a variety of cars on the grid both in make and colour. To maintain a balance of types your host may request that you change your car and / or its colour for the next round.

    Wings must not be fitted to cars - these are classic cars, therefore wings are completely inappropriate.

    Even though ability levels vary widely, I am hoping that all competitors will experience some close and exciting racing and that some good photographs will be taken from the replays which will maintain interest in the series.

    Good luck and clean racing to all drivers.

    It seems you put lots of effort into this! Thanks a lot for inviting me to join this championship, or I guess I should be saying championships.

    Anyway, I'm not quite sure if I need to mention everything about the cars I'll be using, but here they are:
    For the first 3 rounds in Corvette vs Cobra I'll be using the Art Morrison Corvette.
    For the second one, I'd like to start with the Mercedes Benz 300 SL 1954.

    Sorry if I need to mention more things, but I'm a bit confused of what I should mention. If I need to mention anything else please let me know.

    Hi Flaco

    I had forgotten that bumpers could be removed on the Shelby Cobra - so thank you for raising that. I think it is best to race with bumpers removed if possible.

    What World Classic car would you like for rounds 4-6? NB each championship lasts for 6 rounds and we change cars half way through.

    Hi Rehdogg - to maintain a balance of cars I am trying to make sure we have at least two of each type chosen - we have seven types of car. So far no C2 or C1 Corvettes have been selected and only one GT350 - would you mind choosing one of those three cars for rounds 1-3 and the Mercedes for rounds 4-6?

    To maintain a balance / good variety of colours on the grid (sometimes in the past we have had too many yellow or red) I am asking drivers to let me know the colour of their car and the type of wheels for rounds 1-3 and also rounds 4-6.

    For Round 4-6: I'm choosing the Corvette C2 (NOT 15TH ANNIVERSARY).

    IMPORTANT NEWS for attention of all RACERS

    Following feedback regarding the cost of the cars and the difficulty of earning sufficient credits for those who do not have time to play the game often we have introduced the following cost saving measure.

    If it is your turn to race the Ferrari 250 GT 1961 in the World Classic Car Championships (7,500,000 credits) and you are low on credits you can use a substitute car - the allowed substitute car is the Toyota 2000 GT 1967 (160,000 credits). If you use the Toyota it should be red with the original wheels.

    With an oil change and maximum tune the Toyota 2000 GT produces 288 bhp, but it's performance has been tested and found to be comparable to the Ferrari 250 GT with 315 bhp.

    COST SAVING FOR ROUNDS 13-24

    Some cost saving measures will be introduced for rounds 13-24 in view of the fact that some racers do not have much time to play and are struggling to buy the listed cars - we do not want players to have to resort to micro-transactions (real cash payment to Sony / PD for additional in game credits).

    The cost saving measures for rounds 13-24 will be announced in this space shortly.

    Hi SC,

    Can you confirm the track for today - is it Willow Springs Big Willow? Also having just qualified for international B I have discovered those 2 very high speed circuits so can now make 140000 credits in just over 4 minutes in the GT Vision Merc so my 1959 Corvette and Lotus Europa are purchased and still have 1.2 million in the bank! Good to hear that you're coming up with some more cost effective car options though - grinding for money can get tedious!

    Looking forward to racing later - off out for pub lunch beforehand today as it's my birthday!

    Hi Birdseed

    The plan is to use all three tracks from rounds 1-3 for brief test races. Don't worry if you haven't set up gearing etc. for Deep Forest and Laguna Seca - these are just short fun races, but they will help me set the number of laps for rounds 2 and 3. NB Round 1 has already been set at 12 laps.

    We will use Deep Forest in forward configuration. It has a different character in reverse direction so we will go to that track again sometime in rounds 13-24.

    Test Day 16 March
    Short test races were run on the circuits for rounds 1-3, here are a few photos of the Cobra v Corvette and World Classic Car tests. Test races were also run for the One Make Championship which for rounds 1-3 features the 1959 Corvette Racer Concept.

    There's still time to sign up as a reserve driver - racing for real starts on 16 March - If you become a reserve driver, you can race when a regular driver is absent and take a permanent grid slot if a regular driver leaves the championship - normally one or two drivers drop out soon after the start of a championship. If you are interested just send a message to Sick Cylinder via GT Planet or PSN.

    Great shots as always from you IfAndOr - I love the shot showing Makovics white Jaguar E Type on the inside of Kisko's GT350 - Makovics obviously likes to set his cars up low as we can see from the photo and as we saw from the sparks during testing.

    GT6 don't forget to pit.jpg

    All drivers please remember you can take your pit stop on any lap except the final one. The game will add a 50 second penalty if you forget to pit. The Host will add a 30 second penalty if you pit on the final lap. All race results are provisional until replays of the last lap have been checked .
