    Hi everyone! Welcome to the 2nd season of the GRO Global Rally Championship.
    We are looking forward to having an another great and fun season! This idea of creating a rally series started when I was competing into a rallycross championship on GT6. That took me to host a WRC championship, but in the end, it has failed. But while my old PS3 was broken and that I was still waiting for a new one, I already was planning to revive the idea of doing my rally championship and make it sucessfull, as there aren't very much rally championships which are sucessfull.

    The second season of GRC will be containing only 5 classes with the main class being the WRC and Group A Rally Cars. Street cars, Red Bulls, Vision GT's, LMP Protoypes and Race Cars have been banned from this season's GRC.

    With that, the rally championship will become more realistic and fair without having to worry about the Race Cars.

    If you have any question, suggestion or feedback, please let us know. :tup:

    Enjoy! :cheers:

    1.1- The Sporting regulations are written to guarantee clean and fair play during the championship season.

    1.2- In every round, the Sporting Regulations will be on effect.

    1.3- Making insults, racism and accusing towards participants or organisers is extremly prohibited and there will be severe consequences if these of the breaches happen.

    1.4- The Sporting Regulations document are not definitive, therefore, they are sujected to the change at any time, for any reason.

    2.1.1- The championship will have 8 rounds: 3 rounds in Time Trial Mode and 5 rounds in Point-to-Point track mode.

    2.1.2- Each rally event will be lasting 1 week.

    2.1.3- The Rally Event's deadline starts at Mondays at 00:00 GMT+0 and it ends at Sundays at 23:59 GMT+0, depending of your timezone.

    2.1.4- The Rally Event's deadline may be extended for 1 or more days if there are not enough finishers for the rally events or then if there were issues such as Technical Difficulties.

    2.2.1- There will be Point-to-Point tracks during the season for each rally event.

    2.2.2- The rally events may contain from 5 to 15 special stages.

    2.2.3- The “Free Run” event mode will be used in order to get the pictures from every rally event.

    2.2.4- The weather conditions for each rally event will be based on the real life weather conditions.

    2.2.5- The runs must be made in a Online Lobby. However, they can be done in a Normal or Club Online Lobby.

    2.2.6- The times of the 5 special stages will be added to the total Lap Time of the rally event. Here's an example of a rally Event with a Point-to-Point track. This applies also for the Time Trial Events as well (see article 2.3).
    tt.JPG

    2.3.1- During a Time Trial event, a specific number of laps will be given to a rally round, which will be acting as a Special Stages.

    2.3.2- To be classified, a driver must complete the required number laps for each rally.

    2.3.3- If you get disconnected during the rally, it will be classified as “Retirement”. They will be considered as a Mechanical Failures and they are unfortunate.

    3.1- The point system in the Global Rally Championship will be as it follows:
    pts.JPG

    3.2- No points will be awarded for the drivers who get disconnected or rage quitted and there are therefore, considered as retirements.

    4.1- The driver with the most points for the season will be crowned [2017 GLOBAL RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP DRIVER/MANUFACTURER/TEAM/COUNTRY].

    4.2- If two or more drivers finish the season with the same number of the points, the champion and runner-up will be decided on the following criteria:

    4.2.1- The number of wins;
    4.2.2- The number of podiums;
    4.2.3- The number of retirements and/or disqualifications;
    4.2.4- The number of attended rounds;
    4.2.5- The average finishing position.

    4.3- If the two drivers meet up with the same criteria, the Series Organisers may have to do an extra round to decide the champion.

    4.4- If the two drivers have finished the championship with the same number of points and if they are on the same teams, they will be crowned as champions.

    5.1- To sign-up, a driver needs to complete the following form like I did for the 2017 Global Rally Championship.

    entry.JPG


    5.2- The numbers choices (#) are free, however, only the series champion of the Previous Season is allowed to use the number #1.

    5.3- You can drive only 1 car per round, however, car changes are allowed during the season.

    5.4- The types of teams are Factory, Semi-Factory, Non-Factory Teams, Independent Teams and Privateer Teams (teams without name). You can join a team or simply invent it.

    5.5- The participants may change number (#) before their first participation on GRC-2, however, they may not change number after they have completed their first round. This rule is in place to avoid confusion!

    5.6- The participants may invite other people to join the lobby, however, they must inform the host.

    5.7- There are no limit of number sign-ups. Two or more lobbies will be created if neccessary.

    5.8- Entries will be reviewed after the 2017 Global Rally Championship has been completed, for the next season.

    6.1- The drivers, who do not adhere to the Sporting Regulations, may be punished with penalties, point losses and even, with round bans.

    6.2- If a driver feels agravatted with the incident which happened during the rally must send a Private message to the Series Organisers (Harsk100, MonGnoM, RoadRageDudes & J_Starscream) by PSN message or then by GTPlanet Private Conversation facility, so we can check the incident.

    6.3- After the incident has been checked, the penalty will be discussed. Penalties will be given by the following situations:

    6.3.1- Ghosting (pressing “START” button) to avoid damage is extremly forbidden and the penalties will be given if this incident happens.

    6.3.2- Insulting, crictising, making racism and making fun of the drivers is disrespectfull and it will be considered as “Injury of Reputation and Honor”.

    6.3.3- Bringing a overpowered car and then power limitting it to 326 BHP to bypass the GRC-2 Regulations won't work and it will be given an automatic exclusion from the Rally Results. (See Car Homologation Rules)

    6.3.4- A driver may be disqualified from a rally event if he accumulates excessive penalty.

    6.3.5- Repeated Violation of the rules will be considered as “Breaching the Sporting Regulations” and may result on the ban for the rest of the season.

    6.3.6- The Series Organisers do reserve the right to exclude a driver or a team, at their discretion, from any round, at anytime and for any reason!

    7.1- The lobby Settings will be used as it follows:

    All cars which are on the Technical Regulations are specified with a specific HP and kg using the Balance of the Performance Method. To make the race much closer, Balance of Performance and Next Race Handicap methods are used.
    All present technical Regulations for each class must be followed at all times! The non-adherement of these Following Technical Regulations will result in a penalty for each event or worse, possible exclusion from the rest of the 2017 GRC Season.

    Cool!

    I just need to know if you will keep with number #46 or then if you change to a different number, since the number #25 is taken.

    And also, I need to know which car you will be entering.

    Thanks Obelisk!

    I saw the video and I must say that it was a very good battle during the practice. :cheers:

    As you can see, the Subaru was fitted with the Power Restrictor (276 bhp), because if we use the stock power, the Subaru becomes too fast. :tup:

    Not yet, however, the track will be in a Point-to-Point track which was scrapped in the last season due too much lagging.
