Steward's Penalty Report for Event #2, September 20th, 2019 at Autodromo Nazionale Monza

No incidents reported. Great driving to everyone on the grid. There were battles all over the field, and looking at replays, the racing was hard but looked overall exceptionally clean.:cheers:

A reminder to all primary drivers who confirm to race on race night: the confirmation to attend is a commitment to race all races scheduled. If you confirm to attend earlier in the week, but decide you are not up to or can't commit to the whole night of racing on race night, please forfeit your grid spot to waiting Reserve drivers before 9pm of race night. We have 9 Reserve drivers signed up for this series, and will likely have around 4-5 at least available to fill in on race nights. It's not fair to start a race(s) and then retire early when a spot was held for you, especially when a Reserve driver may have been eager and waiting to race.
If a primary driver confirms to race on race night, it is a commitment to race for the entire event.

**Moving forward, any primary driver who confirms to race, and retires early on race night will receive a 5 point deduction on season points standings after drop races.** (Exceptions can be found here: Confirmation, Absence Reporting, and Participation Policies
Please allow a Reserve driver the opportunity to race a whole night if you dont think you can race the whole event.

Thanks in advance.

Next up: Event #3, Friday, October 18th, 2019 at Nurburgring GP

Event details will be posted shortly.

The Confirmation to attend post will be out on Wednesday, October 9th. Please reply to this post or via PSN of your confirmation to attend or availability (if a Reserve), or to report your absence. If you know of an absence prior, please report as soon as you know.

@nmcp1, I already have your absence noted for the Oct 18th event.

Looking forward to our next race night. See everyone on track:cheers:

Must have dreamed it.... :lol: ;) :sly:

Good morning Drivers,
There has been a change to how the team scoring will be kept. Rather than taking the average score of team drivers that raced on the night, the following score keeping process will be implemented. Scoring from the first 2 events have been adjusted to this new poilcy.

Team Standings and Points
The points earned on a race night from the top 2 scoring drivers of each team will be totaled to reflect the Team Points awarded for the event. (3 driver teams will drop the lowest scoring driver's score). If only One Driver of a Team is present on race night only those points scored will count for that Event's total team points. Top 6 scoring events of the 10 Event race schedule will be kept to reflect Season's Team Points Totals. Any penalty points incurred by a driver for an Event will be applied to his contribution to the team score only. If points deducted exceed his points scored, his points are Zero. (First 2 Events have been adjusted to this scoring standard.)

Please like below as acknowledgement of the change.


Btw, nice battle brewing between teams ACI Motorsports and TPC Racing.

I have reviewed the series details and would like to participate in this series as a reserve driver
Welcome to the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge series as a Reserve Driver. Please review the link below regarding Reserve Drivers Process.
Reserve Driver Process
(Basically, be one of the first few Reserve drivers to confirm availability to have the best chance of getting an opened grid spot.)

Also, please run a time trial with the following settings so I can establish your Driver Classification.
Arcade mode/time trial

Run 10-12 laps and pm me a screenshot of your ontrack fast lap and lap history along with your psn id.

Lastly, you have been added to the Reserve Driver News Feed for October 2019. Please look through those posts, and stay up to date and ready for any posts that come through, especially the 2 weeks before scheduled race night.

Small Announcement:
To enhance the visuals and playback of replays, beginning with Event #3, Visual damage will be ON. Mechanical Damage will remain on the "LIGHT" setting.

Also, I wanted to reach out to everyone to be sure to get some practice in. I'm near certain that fastest laps will fall in the low 2:00.0 range, to possibly cracking into the '59's with consistency falling in the mid-hi 2:00's. I've got some laps in already, and I still need to find about .7-.9's.
Event #3, Nurburgring GP, Race Details post

Confirmation post will be out this Wednesday evening. Please be sure to reply.
