@IceWarden , please have a look at the BoP chart. Your fastest laps and avg lap pace continued to be faster than the avg pace of field and in this event was far enough out of range to warrant a bump back to base BoP. Please adjust before our next event.

Race Event Details will be posted within the next week or so. Drivers are welcome and encouraged to confirm their attendance or availability at anytime between now and Thursday, 5/6/21, 5pm est.

Great racing everyone, and I'll look forward to our next event, and will see many of you in the Porsches on the 23rd. :cheers:
 
That’s about as close as it gets!
Nice work all, good fun.

Confirming for Suzuka - with two rounds to go, let’s see if I can keep it on the tarmac & bring home a championship win in my first ever League comp :D


Ha! I finally got you! Lol. Man that race was wild. Such a good time. Honestly I am surprised I had the fast lap for the tie breaker.

I can't wait for Suzuka now. Count me in Nova. My good friend from Australia and I have one hell of a battle going on and I can't pass it up.
 
Practice room *closed*

For the TCR peoples - low 2:13s/mid 2:12s seemed good laps.
Reckon 2:11s are possible.

Fuel’s not an issue, but tyres might get a bit ordinary in the final laps.

Going to do a few practice sessions in the coming weeks, my G29 died so need to get used to the new G923.
:cheers:

Hey is this league still pretty active? Im new to GTS and looking for a weekend league to race in. Been sim racing for awhile but just looking for a new home now that I am retired from iRacing. I haven't raced on a console in a long time, I don't have a headset but I could get one if needed. Im also willing to drive any car available if you have spots in your league.

Thanks!

Yes sir, and while our Season 1 is nearing its end, we do still have 2 events remaining to get a feel for the series before preparing for a Season 2 re-start in July...albeit with just the GS Class cars.
The following cars are still available:
GS Class
Honda NSX Gr4
Porsche Cayman GT4
Ford Mustang Gr4
Ford Mustang Gr4

TCR
Audi TT Cup

Decide which class and car you would like to race, and from there I will pm you with time trial instructions to get your driver BoP set.
Once complete, simply confirm if your available for this upcoming Friday's event at Suzuka, and if there is an opening due to absence(s), you will be welcome to race. Welcome to the series.:cheers:

I already have the Audi TT Coupe so I will take that car I suppose. Next season I (should) have more money in my bank to play with and can reevaluate what cars i want to drive, i just bought a bunch of junk with the 2mil welcome fund. Oops :D

Thanks for the welcome note!

Great pick. For the time trial, see the first post for the online lobby settings and set up a room.
Track: Lago Maggiore West
Conditions: 18:15 Clear
Tires: Race Mediums
Tuning is allowed.

Run your time trial as you plan to race. If you plan to tune, tune first, then run trial, if running stock, time trial as such. Run at least 10-12+laps to get a good solid effort until you cannot get much more out of it. Then pm me a screenshot showing your fast lap, optimal lap, and lap history. This will show your best, your potential, and how consistent. I will then re-issue an adjusted driver specific BoP if necessary.

Base specs for the trial for the Audi TT Cup:
338hp(101%)/2751lbs(111%)

Also, will you need a livery? Or feel free to create your own per the livery regulations in tab 3.2 of the first post. If you choose to create your own, please share the link so I can retrieve it to get a profile picture for our spotters guide and our profile page.

As for season 2, once everything is set up and ready, I will give a date/time for signups and car selection to occur. Grid priority is the first 16 to sign up, and car choice is on a first come first serve. However, there will be an early signup period for any drivers that raced 8 complete point scoring events in Season 1. From there it would be open to all.
I'll tag you as we get closer.


Glad to have you join us, and hope to have you going into season 2.

Confirmation Reminder Post
for Event #11

at Suzuka Circuit
on Friday,
May 7th, 2020
9pm est

To all Drivers tagged in this post, please confirm your status by posting here in the thread or via PSN message that you "will" or "will not" be racing by 5pm Thursday (day before race night) to secure your grid spot and/or to adhere to the absentee policy.


The final Driver BOP regulations have been updated and shown in the 2nd post of the thread. Please verify and apply these latest numbers to your car before entering the race room.

Also, I would ask that all drivers re-review section 4 of the first post, tabs 4.1 (Multi-Class Racing etiquette) and tab 4.2 (Caution process) for the series; and tab 1.7 (Race Start Procedure) to refresh and be ready on race night. Any questions at all, please reach out and clarify before race night.

The race Event schedule is shown below:
9pm est- open room and verify bops/warm up
9:15pm est -15 minute Open qualifying
9:30pm est - 19 laps to = 40 minute Race 1
10:15pm est- 19 laps to = 40 minute Race 2, (Reverse grid)
Race will be using all updated series rules and format. (Caution rules will be used if needed)

Race Event Details
-19 laps for each race.
-15:45 Fine Weather
-1x fuel consumption/1x tire wear.
Event #11 Race Event Details

Driver BOP Chart

All drivers are required to be in the party chat whether they have a mic or not. Caution calling and directives will be issued through the party chat, and for those without a mic, it would come through your monitor/tv audio.

**(In the event a Caution is called during the race, I ask everyone to be patient and cooperative.)**

***Please review tab 4.2 in the first post and clarify or ask any questions before we get to race night.***

All drivers who make it on the grid as a single or dual room event, please stay in the race event for the night, as we will have had to turn some drivers away and it would be a wasted opportunity for them to race ir you entry is needed to keep the 2 room grid whole. If you do not plan on participating for the duration of the night, leave the spot open. In the Event of a solo off track or spin, run to gather up as many points as possible (and there is always the possibility of a Caution to get you back up to field) Stay with it.

Primary Drivers will be given priority for each class, then go to the Reserves for each class as needed. Reserve Driver priority will be based on prior testing/time trialing participation, then based on order of availability. Please reply your intentions either way.

Also, a reminder to our Reserve Drivers: in the event we secure confirmations of at least 14 GS Drivers and at least 10 TCR Drivers total for each class, we will separate the race Event into 2 race rooms by Class. Once confirmed, your entry is being relied on for attendance.


Anyone with a 👍 has already confirmed and are noted to be present for Friday, May 7th. Everyone else, please confirm, here in the thread or via PSN message, that you "will" or "will not" make it no later than 5pm est Thursday (Day before Race Night). *Please reply either way*

👍= will be present
