Quick Reference Guide to GBRC GT7 Casual Racing Rules

At GBRC we pride ourselves in clean racing with minimal contact.
We have an active team of Race Admin members who take part in all races & study the race replays.
We aim for realistic racing and would ask drivers to drive as if it was their car.

Below is a brief version of our Online Racing Rules ;

The Track ;
The game will issue penalties for track limits.
If a driver breaks the track limits and gains an advantage you should give up that advantage.

Qualifying ;
Just like in real life racing, do not obstruct other drivers who are on a fast qualifying lap.
Please move off the racing line or off track.
Do not park on track while qualifying is still in progress.
If you catch up to a driver then it’s your responsibility to back off.
Do not hinder the car in front.

The Race ;
Avoid contact with other cars.
If you make contact with another car & either make them lose control / leave the track / spin, you must wait for the car to rejoin and allow him past.
If another car is ahead & on the racing line when braking into a corner, you must back out of any manoeuvre to avoid contact or spinning the other car around.
Continual contact / rubbing the car in front is not acceptable
Weaving to avoid slip streaming / towing the car behind is not acceptable – you can move once.
If you leave the track, care must be taken to safely re-join without hindering other drivers.
Be prepared to leave racing room for cars that are alongside or 'overlapping' you
The race is not won in the first corner – be patient on the first few corners.
You must make every effort to avoid collisions, this would include going off track.

Two words to think about - Patience and Awareness.

Be gentlemanly,polite and respectful.
Respect the stewards and Admin.

Persistent, careless, abusive driving could result in a Permanent ban from GBRC.

Glad to see you guys coming back to GT7. PS5 only is the way to go...been working good for my series. Wish I could have participated more in the ACC series you had....just couldnt keep up with the practice required for a weekly series. Hope you get a good roster going. See you guys around.
 
Thanks for popping in llNovall,Yeah ACC is too hardcore for me and now the lobbies have settled i can start racing GT7 again.
We have a few drivers but would like some more regulars to start a series. i will update the OP with the current driver roster, thanks for reminding me :)
Hope to chat soon.

The aim is to have fun and enjoy the racing i will ask GBRC-Cokebloke to use the Mini on Thursday. It offers some close racing and is easy to drive, unfortunately i'm working evenings this week so cant make Thursday but the other drivers will look after you.
I will be on Sunday if you can make it.
 
Great racing for sure. Good to race with others who are sensible and not sticking the nose in the slightest gap. I need to get up to speed but that will come. The old brain takes a little time warm up!

Glad you enjoyed it 👍 Was working Thursday but me and the guys will be on Sunday if you are about.
How did you find the Mini? We might try the Mazda around Atlanta on Sunday.

We have a gentlemanly approach to racing and try to be cautious has possible.
The aim is to enjoy the racing even if you're battling at the lower positions, having a good honest battle always brings a smile to my face no matter what position i'm in.

@morfei1 the rest of the guys will be on Sunday has a few are on holiday or had commitments. Would be nice if you can make it.
 
Mini was great. Coming from dailies where its all race cars it was a refreshing change.

Sunday I'm 50/50 depending on how the F1 is going. A dull race and I'll be on. The Mazda round RA?. Sounds a great combo!
 
Evening... I've sent a friend request to both Lunchbox and Cokebloke. I'm a Grumpy-Mancunian looking for some clean racing fun.

Sent a friend request, i mislaid your first request.
Welcome and enjoy the racing.
 
I've spent the last couple of evenings being mentored by Mr Lunchbox. Tremendously helpful and an absolute hoot. If you're looking for a mature and clean place to race I would highly recommend dipping your toe here. I will be joining my first race proper this evening - I might not be the fastest, but damn if my car ain't gonna turn some heads...

Just seen this. I replied in your main thread. Jason I'll be around tomorrow evening if you wanna joins whoever's around for some casual stuff. You'll need the PSN online subscription thing - I have the cheapest one and it works for me... you'll need to add one or more of us as friends to find your way to the lobby... If you haven't got a headset, you might want to consider investing - good comms is all part of the fun...
