General

Players must be currently living in Europe
Car class: Gr3
Points are awarded to the top eight on the scale of 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1

Room Number: TBA

To "Register" just add me on PSN and turn up. First come first served.
Just roll up and race

What if we have over 16 racers?
We can run a second version of each round if there is enough demand for it and work out relative points won compared to the car-count. We'll call this second group "Set 2".

If Set 2 has less than 10 racers, the winner will get points equalling the entry count.
If 8 racers enter Set 2, then the winner gets 8 points.

Set 2 probably won't happen, as I don't think everyone will turn up. But if we get 26 racers wanting to race, we have Set 1 which includes 16 max racers and Set 2 which includes the rest, each set has 2 Races per Round as normal.

All settings that can be set to "real" set to "real".
Lenient penalties, you can work-off your time by slowing.

8PM UK time seems decent, around 9PM in Germany. Will the races be on a saturday or friday maybe?

Thursday evening currently, this day and time was chosen because it's very unspecial and won't take up valuable weekend time. That was the theory anyway :D

Hi my psn is 'nonZence' I am an older GT player with reasonable experience of driving without traction control (and other aids) but I use a controller not wheel I am 73% gold so far in the game. I'm looking for a GT community to get involved in. Send me a psn friend request to see my times.

Okay, I'll start registrations today. Later on I'll PM people already interested to confirm interest and add them to the list when they reply. We can run a "pre-season" event this Thursday, to test the format (I'll update the first post later to include proposed tracks, length of championship, etc). Then start the weekly championship the following Thursday for real.

Hi Guys I thought i'd leave this here, I race on AOR and we have many different league running for different games and right now we're just trying out Social races to gauge interest and what sort of structure we will have for a GT Sport league.

So far it seems to be settled on a a 1 hour race with a 10 minute qualy session but we have only just started doing the races as of last weekend. Obiviously you guys can't make tonights race because your here but I thought I would put these links here in case any are interested.

We're based in mostly in the UK we about 1/3 of the drivers coming from Europe, all races are run at BST and usually at 8PM.
