    For two seasons on Gran Turismo 6, the ToCA CLIO CUP provided some fantastic racing with the little Renault Clio Mk3. By far the most requested series of the last couple years the series returns with the 2016 Mk4 model. It's going to be close, combative racing, in these lightened, sport-tyre equipped french hatchbacks. WELCOME TO ToCA CLIO CUP SEASON 3!

    Surprised this hasn't had more initial interest.

    Clio Cup will get their own Media Night the Sunday after next at Brands Hatch Indy.

    It's not a real race car is why.

    Schedule adjustment - 8th or 15th december be an off-week - does anyone have a particular preference as to which one? If it's the 8th it'll be after 4/7 events, if 15th after 5/7 events.

    I think it should be the 8th December as then it would be like having a mid season break pretty well at the half way point of the season

    So we'll have a small Clio test at Brands Indy on Sunday approx 9pm GMT - I believe this will avoid a clash with Miatas @LancerEvo7 ?

    Change of rim design - can we all please use DEFAULT rims that come with the car.

    Spa-Francorchamps replaces Sardinia C on the schedule, mid-season break 8th December.

    So after further consideration, Sardinia > Spa.

    Let's get some Clios on track tonight tho, for the Clio Cup Media Night from 20:00GMT!

    Round #1 at Brands this weekend, aiming for a grid of at least 10 cars.

    Unfortunately this. I tried opening a series with the Clio as a Clio Cup but nobody joined. I even put it on RH tires because race car. If it's not a Gr. car with high tire/fuel wear most people don't care. SMH

    Those cars are also stripped out for racing with race suspension, some engine tuning and plenty chassis tweaks...

    And to replicate that all we need to do is make it lighter, add power, and allow tuning so people can tighten the suspension. People just don't like road cars, let alone FWD cars

    Which can't be replicated in GT Sport, especially with the lackluster physics.

    @DesertPenguin GTS and it's tiny tuning range on suspension kits for road cars does not in any way reflect a racing suspension kit... I spent five years myself watching those things trackside and that kind of handling is not able to be replicated on GTS.

    Certainly though, people have got more boring on GTS and GT3-orientated...

    Modest grid tonight expected. Looking forward to it. Clios don't need big grids to be entertaining.

    An unexpected first win in years when I thought I was gonna be garbage.

    Great racing through the field. Clios are back with a vengeance.

    I guess it's nice that I'm really pissed I didn't win all 3 races?

    Hello, I am not sure I have done this correctly. I'll double check the information.
