    For two years ToCA rose from obscurity to become one of GTPlanet's leading series on Gran Turismo 5. Firstly two seasons of aggressively styled race-ready touring cars got us started before a move to larger modified road vehicles.

    Over time ToCA evolved with characteristics then unique from other GTP series - forced no rear wings, making cars trickier to drive; fully supported Overall, Independent, Teams, & Makes Championships; and a unique Qualifying format that ensured whilst up to 27 drivers could enter a week, only an elite 16 would ultimately make it.

    198 races on from a sparse single-figure car grid at Cape Ring Inside, we are ready for a new era. Gran Turismo 6 has been unleashed upon us, and it is going to serve up a treat. Physics changes mean cars kerb hop and three wheel over the place, a revamped Qualifying system aims to level the playing field, and BTCC favourites Brands Hatch and Silverstone front an almost entirely-new calendar.

    ToCA10 - Season 10, is upon us. Dawn of a new era on Gran Turismo 6, will you join us all in the race for glory...?

    ~Races are held Saturdays nights, with room open from 7pm GMT through to 9.30pm. In exceptional circumstances these times may change slightly.~

    ~To compete make sure you have "Furinkazen" on your friends list - lobby will be set to friends only!~

    ~Grip Reduction is set to Real~

    ~Damage is set to Light~

    ~Mics are forced off~

    ~All driving aids except the usage of ABS at 1 are forced off~

    ~In-game alteration of your cars settings through usage of the RA functions are not permitted.

    ~Draft is set to Real~

    ~Penalties are turned off.~

    ~Fuel Use and Tyre Wear is on at a Normal rate.~



    [​IMG]

    ~Timetable will be as follows (times in GMT): 7pm, Race Room Opens, Free Practise. 7.20pm Pre-Qualifying Session begins. 7:40pm Pre-Qualifying Session ends. 7:50pm Qualifying for 10 minutes. 8pm Race 1. 5 min break between races for Race 2. 5 min break between races for Race 3.~

    ~ToCA10 uses a pre-qualifying system in order to make sure the best drivers on the grid are present at each round.~

    ~The Top 12 in the championship points are locked in and guaranteed a place in the lobby for the 3 points scoring events, these drivers may not enter the lobby until after Pre-Qualifying unless given special permission by me to do so.~

    ~The rest of the entries have to be in the lobby for the Pre-Qualifying session from 7.25pm-7.45pm. The drivers with best 4 lap times will Qualify for the main races. Times will be recorded throughout the session, drivers may quit track and make set up changes to the car, doing so will not affect the registered lap time.~

    ~If anyone of the Top 12 is known not be present before race night, that opens up another Qualification slot. Also the 5th place qualifier is advised to be on hand if problems befall any of the main 16 - they may be permitted to start in case of a top 16 runner having to leave or not turning up.~

    ~All races will be run from a standing start with no pace lap.~

    ~Race 2 and 3 are Reverse Grid events.~

    ~Set-up changes between races are allowed.~

    ~This is touring cars so bumping, rubbing and small taps are par for the course. But excessive and deliberate moves across half the track to take someone out are disallowed. Remember still to be fair. ToCA10 Stewards will review incidents post race and take appropriate action.~

    ~Incidents will be punished by a License Points system. Much like an actual driving license, you will get points on your license for incidents. At 5 penalty points this will trigger an automatic 5 point penalty, at 10 points this will trigger an automatic and 10 point penalty and possible suspension based on a Stewards Review. Penalty Points will be made public so everyone knows where each other is at.

    ~Poor Off-track conduct in the lobby or in the forum may also result in License Points being received.

    ~ We will use the BTCC Points System, detailed in this image below:
    [​IMG]

    ~You are NOT allowed to swap cars during the course of the season. Prior to the Season Start please make sure you have decided your car / team, and passed the information on to me. However if it is for reason of changing team or moving from Independent to a Team for example, then this may be permitted~

    ~Rage-quitters who earn cheap poles subsequently will be penalised. If you wish to stop, pull over off the road at a safe place out the way. However if you DC you will NOT be penalised and forced to move over - it will count as a normal DNF. People who abuse this system may result in License Points being received.

    ~Mid race chat is not permitted - license points may be added to people who abuse this unless it is for a good reason.~​

    A Land Rover. A :censored:ing Land Rover. :tup:
    Standard BMW. :tdown:

    In for sure with either the Land Rover or the Pug. Or the Genesis. Or maybe the Slowline v2. But not the standard car.

    Handled like a dream in GT5.

    Diesels have run in touring cars IRL for quite a while. :)

    I'm not saying it's a bad car, it just doesn't make sense to me to have one standard car in a field of premiums.

    I'm really torn between the RCZ and Land Rover.

    Not this time. I've been more generous allowing 5 of each car as well. (was 3/4 before).
