    Welcome

    Before signing up to be an FGTA driver please take the time to thoroughly read all the below information and ensure you are clear on our rules and regulations.
    If you have any questions after reading all the information, feel free to ask.
    We are also open to, and welcome all comments and suggestions you may have.
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________
    ABOUT US

    The FGTA was created by three Gran Turismo players who met on GTPlanet. Two of which currently host their own race series on GTPlanet. (@P1K3Y_M1k3Y -> WGTC + @Glenalz81) The third creator, @gtpcaine, is a co-host in the WGTC and the one responsible for our website (currently under construction). Between us, we came up with the FGTA.

    The FGTA is basically a governing body for online racing. Similar to the FIA in real life racing. Events run by the FGTA all share the same core regulations, and attitude to racing. One of the reasons the FGTA was formed, was to make things simpler and easier to access for the members of our race series.

    The general members are the most important thing to us. We are always interested in what you have to say. Whether it's about this thread, our website, or an individual race series. Get in touch with us if you have any feedback. Things you like, things you don't like, all is welcome!

    ___________________________________________________________________________________________

    OUR AIM

    The aim of the FGTA is to bring as many variations of Race Series' together under one banner. Resulting in a wide range of enjoyment for an ever growing member base. With all events following the same core regulations, it allows drivers to chop and change between different styles of racing without having to remember different sets of rules for the different championships.

    As we have only just formed this governing body, out current target is to build up our reputation for good, clean racing. Which is what everyone who races online is after. This can only be achieved by our largest feature. The community. It's the commitment and attitude of the general members who make running in a race series fun and worthwhile.

    So, want to help make the best race series out there? Then please sign up and enjoy yourselves!
    ________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    THIS THREAD

    Once complete this thread will have all the links and information (including general FGTA rules and regulations) you will need to become a FGTA driver or even series organizer.
    This thread should be the main hub of communication between the FGTA series organizers and their drivers for general discussion and future series information. Drivers are always welcome and encouraged to put ideas and suggestions forward to the series organizers and all ideas and suggestions will be considered.

    Please feel free to introduce yourself to us, you don't even have to want to join any of our current series or even apply to become a driver (unless you wish to race) although there is spaces in our current series and many many, more series coming in the future once all the FGTA features and details are complete (details below)
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________

    OUR WEBSITE

    Watch this space as we will slowly be releasing information about our website. I would like to include what features and advantages we would like you to have and will try to include for you as both a driver and race director.
    Some things I know are already know I are going in are:
    News section - for all the most up to date news and information.
    Race series and calendar - All our race series in one place and full race calendar.
    Stats - All the series and driver stats in one place.
    Media - Where anyone can post their favorite pictures and videos.
    We are also aiming to build a full database of car specs and regulations for various types of series using various types of cars at various level's of power, meaning you should be able to find the right set of cars and regulations for your series with already balanced spec's. This will take time and help from other race directors would help with this.
    ________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    FGTA RULES AND REGULATIONS

    Full FGTA Rules and Regulations can be found here
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________

    CURRENT FGTA RACE DIRECTORS

    Any of our committed drivers are welcome to apply to become an FGTA series organizer, only thing we ask is that you can prove you are able to put the effort needed to host an entire series.
    Any current series organizers are welcome to apply for their series to be governed by us, you will keep full control of the series and be responsible for keeping your own GTPlanet series thread and once complete your series will be added to our website (currently under construction) and you will be asked to keep this up to date.

All it means is that you will be given information on any upcoming events or series we host and may even be able to sign up before the thread goes public.

    We hope you will never need it, but, if for any reason you wish to cancel your registration, please complete this form.

    Multi driver, multi class endurance series Idea.

    I have tried to advertise this a few times and will try again here.

    This series would be for teams of 2 drivers that can race at the same location for 6-12 hour races. To make this easier races would be just once a month. I know I have a few teams that is interested but need more to make it worth while doing.
    Multi class would be GTE and LMP.

    If you can find a team mate that can race in the same location once a month please show interest.

    Current interest tally:
    (minimum to start planning 8 teams)
    Teams:3 + 1 driver looking for a team mate

    So it would be kind of a 2 race weekend, for example the 1st driver attends the 1st race, and the 2nd driver does the other one. Am I right?

    EDIT: Ooops, I should read the posts properly :D Yeah from the same location... I could get one

    12 hours is a long race to do on your own and would kind of go against the point of it :(

    Just to let you know, I'm pretty sure that if you edit someone into the OP, they don't get notified.

    Just to check,
    @aboe, did you get notified when edited into the OP?

    This does not in any way mean you must commit to future series governed by us but does allow easy joining if you so wish. If after the series you are currently committed to, you wish not to commit to other series, you are free to have your name removed from the above list, but will have to apply again if you change your mind.

    Could all drivers that do not have a timezone next to their name please confirm what their timezone is please, this will be a great help :tup:

    Sounds good. I'm in GMT zone. Would be keen for endurance racing but don't know many people that enjoy GT enough near me to race a whole endurance race :(

    So you are in GMT, :lol: must have missed that :lol:
    The endurance series is just an idea for now, if enough teams join then planning will start :tup:
    For longer races than the 10-10 we also have the WGTC about 1h 45 - 2 hours (sign up show full but will be opening some spaces due to non attenders later today).

    If you mean the WGTC, please sign up in the thread :tup:

    This is just the main thread for the governing body for Glen's BMW 10-10, just keeps all the drivers that race in one of our series in one place for future information :tup:
