SNAIL Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge - 2024

Welcome to Snail's Monthly Gr4 Friday Night racing, the Michelin Pilot Challenge presented by Snail. This is a full "road car to GT4 spec race car" parity series for those who want to build and race their own car. All available cars are currently being used or will be used in the real world Michelin Pilot Endurance Challenge and the VP Racing Sports Car Challenge Series. All eligible cars will be rear wheel drive and will be spec'd closely to their real world counterparts.
All vehicles will have a real world base weight requirement that will not be adjustable, along with front and rear downforce maximum regulations for each car to stay close to the lower downforce of the real world GS/GT4 race cars. Other than these restrictions, all other modifications and tuning are open as long as the final Performance Point (PP) Value is less than or equal to 640pp.
A list of required tuning modifications and livery requirements have been made available and can be found in Section 3 of this post.
Race Events will be once a month on Friday nights, 9pm est.
Start building and testing some cars, and if interested in joining, please post here in the thread.

To Sign Up,
Due to the inconsistent and unstable nature of open lobbies with cross platform use, this series will be exclusively for PS5 users only. Furthermore, drivers who sign up outside of the North American region will have their connection stability assessed among the remainder of the attending roster during test and practice sessions leading up to the season's start. If room stability is compromised, that driver will be asked to leave the event, or possibly the series if it cannot be resolved. I am determined to pilot a stable and smooth running series on this GT7 title. All cooperation will be appreciated. Please have a glance through the first post, and if interested sign up as follows:

1.) It is required that drivers enter the Open party chat to help in the flow of communication to start the night and communicate Caution requests/issuing and directives during the Caution.
2.) Open Conversation is allowed at the opening of the Race Room to the official start of Qualifying, approximately 9:15pm est. ALL MICs MUST BE MUTED AT THIS TIME, thru Qualifying, and Race (Host will remind all drivers to please mute mics before the call to start qualifying)
3.) During the race, Drivers may only come on the mic to verbally request a Caution/Yellow Flag, and for the Caution to be issued by the Race Director and directives related to the Caution.
4.) Once the race finish countdown is complete, drivers may resume un-muted conversation up to the call to mute mics before the next race.

Be reminded that no discussions regarding on track incidents are to be discussed, except obviously, if it is simply an apology and no more. Please review the penalty guidelines for more detail on this policy.

And Lastly,

Please don't be that guy who has their mic on the whole race (If your headphones do not have a mute feature, simply leave the party chat before the Qualifying Session begins**

Hopefully this will add to the overall quality of these Events.

Driver "Race Night" confirmation policy

-A Confirmation Reminder Post with ALL drivers tagged will be posted in the main thread as well as a PSN conversation by the Friday of the week before a scheduled Race night
All Drivers, may "Early" confirm their attendance or availability at any time after the most recent Event to establish their priority and grid spot for the next event.
-All drivers tagged are asked to confirm that they "will" or "will not" be racing by 5pm est Thursday (day before race night) to guarantee the scheduled race.
-(Amended on 10/20/23) A minimum of 10 drivers confirmed to attend will be required to guarantee the originally scheduled race night.
(if minimum is not reached, event will be postponed 1 week from the originally scheduled date and will be run regardless of grid size.)
Race Night Participation Policy
Any drivers that confirm their attendance for Race night are holding a grid spot and committing to a full night of racing. For this series format to function the way it was intended, participation to the end of race night is extremely important. Therefore, any driver who leaves prior to the conclusion of race night will receive points only for the race completed, and a -5 Point penalty will be assessed against that driver's season standing.
-If unable to attend due to a change of circumstances or plans, please notify me as soon as reasonably possible if you are unable to make the event.
*The latest acceptable notice without any recourse is 9:10pm est. *
Any drivers who are confirmed to attend, and fail to appear, will automatically default to a Reserve for their next confirmed event.

(If you disconnect during a race, please return to the room and wait out the remainder of that race. This will satisfy the above participation policy.)
[Life does dish out Emergency situations. If this occurs, please exit the race and post the message: "Emergency Exit Needed" before leaving the room.]

Please remember that a grid spot was held for you to race when you confirmed attendance which placed other drivers on the waiting list. Let's be sure that the grid spots we are holding are being used up for the night.

Thanks Fellas.
ALL Drivers attending a race night event will be required to submit their performance spec sheet (via screenshot) to the series PSN group chat between the time that the room is opened (9pm est) to the start of Qualifying (9:15pm est)
-If Race 1 is missed, and the driver is attending Race, he must submit before the start of Race 2.

-These will be reviewed post event.
-Failure to meet your specific regulations or submit spec sheets will result in a 10 point penalty assessed against your total score for the event.
It should look like the attached picture, and must be done prior to every event. (Disregard the 650.00pp regulation in picture, just an example)

Spec sheet must show:
-Weight (as noted in chart below)
-PP Spec 640.00pp for all drivers at start of season - do not exceed
(driver specific after Event #1)
-front and rear aero (not to exceed max's shown in chart below)
Again, these will be reviewed after each event. Please dont forget.

Baseline Tunes used for Testing:
Used Priano tuning as a base with the parts shown and required for the series. Reminder, no "Widebody" modifications are permitted in the series. If installed, buil a new car (cheaper than putting back to normal). Racing Transmission ratios were left as they were (not Priano's tuned ratios), and aero adjusted to my liking and to achieve the 640pp spec. (Changed from 650pp to 640pp after update 1.31)

1.) Each Driver may request 1 change of car to another eligible car within the series per season.
2.) Drivers must pm me formally of their request with their new car choice.
3.) A new livery must be rendered, submitted for approval, and a new driver side profile picture must be provided to update the driver profile page and spotters guide.
4.) Drivers who have earned any concessionary PP, will default back to the starting 640.00pp regardless of how many were accrued.
5.) Drivers with any handicap points are not eligible to change cars until they return to the 640.00pp starting regulation or have moved into concessionary PP regulations.
6.) No car change requests will be accepted after Event #4 (past mid season)

4.) Caution Procedures
Yellow Flag/Cautions Process
Since this series will be a (2) 30 minute race format, we will be instituting a "Called Caution/Yellow Flag" feature to regroup the field in the event of an incident. (1 Caution available for each Race)

The following processes and rules will apply:
1.) ALL Drivers must enter and remain in the 16 driver party chat whether they have a Mic or not. (Chat audio will come through your monitor/tv for those without a headset.)
2.) Mics must be muted at all times, Except:
a.) When a driver verbally requests a caution/yellow flag, or
b.) When the Host/Race Director grants and calls the "Full Course Caution", or directions during Caution (Green this lap, etc)
3.) Drivers should continue racing until the Host/Race Director verbally calls out:
"Full Course Caution"
4.) Single Car accidents or "off-tracks" are not permitted to request a Caution at any time. (This can be cause for distraction and will be met with a penalty assessed post race)
5.) At least (2) Drivers of any size incident must request a Caution for it to be issued.
6.) ALL drivers must slow to 65-70 mph, single file, and avoid any contact with other cars.
7.) A maximum of (1) Cautions/Yellow Flags per Race will be afforded. (If there are incidents after a caution was granted, we will stay Green Flag.)
8.) NO PIT STOP. This is a regrouping caution only.
9.) The Caution period will be the remainder of the lap if the incident occurs early in the lap and the field can be quickly re-grouped, or one additional lap if necessary. Race Director will decide and instruct when the field is to return to Green, or whether an additional lap is necessary.
10.) NO Cautions will be granted for any incidents that occur in the final 2 laps of any race.
11.) Cautions called and Granted in the Opening 2 laps will be issued, leaving none left for the remainder of the race. In this situation, the incident will automatically initiate a review with penalties being issued to the driver(s) that created the incident.

How to Call for a Caution:
(At least (2) Drivers of any size incident must request a Caution for it to be issued.)
1.) Verbally over Mic, say: "Caution Requested, by (your name)"
if No Mic, text in the chat box: "cr" or "Caution"
(If no response from the Host/Race Director within 10 seconds, request again)
2.) Host/Race Director will respond:
"Full Course Caution" when acknowledged.
(Drivers should continue to race until the Caution is acknowledged and issued)

Play by Play Process during a "Full Course Caution"
Once "Full Course Caution" is called:
1.) The Overall race leader becomes our pace car and is to gently slow to 65-70 mph, with all drivers catching up and slowing to the 65-70 mph pace speed, single file and in the position they were in when the Caution was issued
2.) Overall Race Leader is to pace the field for the remainder of the lap when the Caution was issued and/or 1 complete lap if necessary.
3.) All drivers are expected to be grouped up before the final corner. If not grouped prior to final corner, the Race Director will instruct an additional Caution Lap.
4.) Once the field is grouped up and the Race Director is satisfied, he will announce "Track going green on my Call"
5.) All drivers are to maintain position and pace speed until the Race Director calls " Green flag, go, go, go"
6.) The Race Director will call the start at any point from the exit of the final corner up to the finish line for long straight away start/finish lines, or on the longest straight following the start/finish line.
7.) Drivers are not to try and jump the start. Any Driver that causes contact or overlaps the car in front of them in any way prior to the green flag being called will recieve a 5 point penalty assessed to their overall point total for the night. Wait for the Green flag call.
8.) Drivers may begin racing as soon as "Green Flag" is stated by the Race Director.

5.) Penalty Reporting and Information Hub
Drivers may file incidents after the last race on Friday race night to Monday at 11:59pm est of the same weekend.
Penalty filing instructions
-Submit your incident(s) by filing via pm to the Chief Steward
NOVA-0479 (Chief Steward)

Incident filing PM's must include the following in this order for each incident to be accepted:
*Conversation Title: "Your PSN ID": IR filed against "PSN ID of driver you are filing on"
*Include the following information in the report:
-PSN name of the driver being filed against
-Your PSN name
-Race Number the incident occurred (Race 1,2)
-the lap number that the incident occurred
-the time the incident occurred (Use time posted in the middle of the screen)
-description of the incident being filed

(Multiple offenses filed on the same driver may be included in the same group PM)

The Chief Steward will select 3 peer drivers to judge the incident(s) in question and will review all incidents filed and submit a ruling in the respective incident group pm by 6pm Friday of the next race event.
The Stewards will be utilizing the penalty guidelines set up and used within the Snail Spec Racing Series. Follow the link below for:
Penalty judging Guidlines
All Stewards are to review a replay of an incident in question and reply to the PM with their opinion as to what "Level" the incident falls under, and a recommended point value within selected level to deduct.
*The Chief Steward will make a final review of all incidents filed, taking into account any rebuttals and the other Steward's grading of the incidents and will make a final ruling for issuing penalty points.
*Please Note: If the Chief Steward deems, in any way, the lead driver lost control, and the chase driver attempts to brake or evade, but still makes contact, no penalty may be issued at the Chief Steward's discretion. *
Penalty points will be shown in the Overall Season Standings Scoresheet and will be deducted from the event score it was recieved.
This series will be adhering to the following linked OLR and good racecraft guidelines when deciding fault for any reported incidents.

Hi Fellas,
This is the new thread build for our new GS/GT4, PS5 ONLY Series. Due to the inconsistent and unstable nature of open lobbies with cross platform use, this series will be exclusively for PS5 users only. Furthermore, drivers who sign up outside of the North American region will have their connection stability assessed among the remainder of the attending roster during test and practice sessions leading up to the season's start. If room stability is compromised, that driver will be asked to leave the event, or possibly the series if it cannot be resolved. I am determined to pilot a stable and smooth running series on this GT7 title. All cooperation will be appreciated. Please have a glance through the first post, and if interested sign up as follows:

Please Copy/Paste the template below and post in this thread with your information:
GTPlanet ID:
Car Number:
PS5 Platform:
answer "yes" or "no"
Car: answer with selected car or reply "TBD"

Vehicle choice is OPEN. The Vehicle List is in Section 3 of the 1st Post. Feel free to select your car upon sign up, or feel free to sign up and select a car later. Car Selection must be done before the first event date (not yet set).

I'm hoping we can get a solid roster built up to kick start some racing again.

Yes, it seems to have been figured out that the PS4/PS5 discrepancy is what causes the lobby issues. I don’t see myself ever buying one though, not worth 700 dollars to not lag in one game so I’ll be out.
Xradkins is using very good and affordable PS4, still. Unless it breaks, no new PS on the horizon. Racing with AI on easy mode let's me run up the credits fast enough to be able to grab $20M cars as they cycle around, too. Good luck!

Car List is up for choice in section 3 of the 1st post. Feel free to start testing and make your selection when ready. No limits on how many of each car this time around. Get the word out that this is in the works. Going to need a roster of at least 16 drivers before this goes live.
The Merc spec's should be 160/260 w/o the rear diffuser, which looks exactly like the stock part minus the carbon fiber.

I am having NAT2/NAT3 issues with my internet provider and I dont know if I can even enter a lobby race. If there is a test room open some night I will pop in and see if it works.2 Gig fiber is supposedly coming my way this year but for now its either bipoplar T-Mobile home internet or the very slow DSL.

I plan to run some laps and see what I like after the changes to the specs.
Just for fun testing:

I think the time was a 1:24.9 on the offline TT for Road Atlanta.
Hoping to get more interest. Glad to see our regulars back on the roster. We've had alot of looks, but not many inquires or sign ups. Fingers crossed that the roster will build.
My first test session at the High Speed Ring is done and I have 6 cars within .637 and 8 of 9 within 1 sec. For me there are 2 clear front runners so far and the slowest car is 1.7 back. I need to go back and work on that one and see if I missed something, like suspension parts.:D

If we can get about 4-5 of us together for a 6pm est testing session, I'll open a room for the Michelin series. Make sure your weight, max pp specs, and car build is correct to the series requirements. Post if interested.
