    SCHEDULE
    The Greatest Hits: Volume 1


    Tired of getting annoying penalties in GT Sport online lobbies? Well we're just what the motorsport doctor ordered!

    Who is Draft House Racing?
    After mass participation at a former racing league began to diminish, one of the admins decided to go out on his own. After trialling many different events, MoparSRT (that's his PSN ID) came up with the "Max Speed Special". This particular event was the most popular and its continued success led him to create his own racing league in 2019 called Draft House Racing (DHR). Now the league hosts a multitude of different events on a regular basis and prides itself on being open to all. DHR isn't made up of loads of professional sim racers who only race with other pros, we encourage even beginners to join us! However we do sometimes have participation from some former GT Academy Finalists! Our signature event, the "Max Speed Special" is a great equalizer in this regard. The driver with the most skill doesn't always win!
    Welcome to where the racing is always fun, welcome to where everyone is included, Welcome To Our House.​

    Where are the events?
    The schedule with associated links is at the top of this post. Each link contains the full details of each event. We just wrapped up Season 1 last month and before we start Season 2, we have a special event planned where you can win up to $50 worth of PSN Gift Cards!! For more details, follow the link at the top of this post.

    What If I Wanna Talk to People?
    For now our voice chat is via the PS4 Party Chat, not GT Sport. A Chat Room will be created usually around an hour before the racing begins with invites sent out. Our Discord for voice chat is coming, don't worry. More details on that soon!

    What If I Just Wanna Watch?
    If you feel like taking a break from the action on track, then you can watch it all unfold LIVE on our official YouTube channel! You can also watch all our past streams there whenever you want.

    Anything else?
    The usual on-track etiquette applies. Dangerous drivers will be kicked from the room immediately. Drivers of all skill levels are encouraged to participate! We pride ourselves on clean racing and test our events before posting them. We always aim to make sure the racing is as close as possible!

    What a blast Season 1 was! What makes DHR so great isn't just how close the racing is, but also how fun it is, and that's what Season 1 was chock full of! Nevertheless, before we kick off Season 2 in September, we're putting our money where our engine is!
    The Greatest Hits: Volume 1 is a special event where you have the chance to win up to $50 in PSN Gift Cards!! The format will be slightly different to our normal, more casual events as there will be a points system in place. But as the game show hosts always say: "Points make prizes!"

    How do I get in?
    Intent to race should be sent to drafthouseracing@gmail.com. Alternatively, you can let us know via our Discord. The entry deadline is Saturday, August 15. There are limited main slots available and entry will be decided on a first come, first serve basis. Please include your PSN ID in your contact to us, as well as your full intention and commitment to race in all four rounds.

    What if I miss out?
    There will be a list of alternate participants should someone from the main list not make the start or cannot otherwise participate. Participants in the Lobby will be booted if they are excessively dangerous on track. This could mean an alternate is called during the event to replace someone else. So keep your eyes and ears open if you are an alternate!

    What about if I disconnect from the Lobby?
    You will be given one chance to get back in. After a second failed attempt, we may have to contact an alternate participant to replace you. We have to keep things moving swiftly, otherwise we'll be there all night!

    Who can race?
    Drivers of all skill levels are encouraged to participate! DHR isn't made up of loads of professional sim racers who only race with other pros, we're just looking to have a great time on the track!

    Do we get to practice beforehand?
    Of course! There will be an official practice taking place on Friday, August 14. More details on that to come!

    How does it work with the prizes?
    The prizes will consist of one $25 PSN Gift Card for winning a round and an additional $25 PSN Gift Card for the driver with the most accumulated points across all four rounds. This means that you could potentially win $50 worth of PSN Gift Cards. These can be redeemed to be used on the PlayStation Store and are subject to Sony Interactive Entertainment's usual terms and conditions. You must win a round to receive the prize. There will be one prize winner per round. If a winner claims more than one victory, the prize will go to the runner-up and so-on. In the interests of fairness, you can only win one gift card per round, even if you win all four rounds. We will contact you the day after the event to give you your prize(s).

    You said there was a points system in place?
    Yep! Something we don't normally do at DHR. But seeing as this is a special event, we thought it would be fun! Each round will be scored based on position. For example: 1st = 16 points | 16th = 1 point. Points will only matter for the fourth and final round. Points will be tripled in this final round. This means that if you had bad luck in the first three rounds, you have a chance in the final round!

    What are the rules?
    Keep the racing as clean as possible. If an incident occurs, please do your best to give the position back. Purposeful contact will not be tolerated and could result in an immediate boot. In this instance, an alternate will be called upon to fill the slot.

    What if I wanna talk to people?
    Our voice chat is via the PS4 Party Chat, not in GT Sport. A Chat Room will be created at 20:00 Eastern and invites sent out to the main participants.

    What if I just wanna watch?
    You can watch all the on-track action unfold LIVE on our official YouTube channel! You can also watch all of our past streams there whenever you want.
