    Yes of course! We have plenty of room left! We have 2 GT spots and 2 LMP/LMGTP spots :) Just let me know what car you want to use and I'll be sure to sign you up immediately. Is the time okay with you? It says you live in U.K and I know you guys are 5 hours ahead of us.

    Thanks. I'll give the timings and car list a check out and will get back to you soon and update this post

    Edit: well pointed out. It appears I cannot make it as it would be 3am and is certainly not able for me to make it and if I do it would probably be unsafe for other drivers if I did.

    I would have to move the series time back, The only thing is, It'd be inconvenient for other people participating if I just abruptly changed the time. So I'll have to ask the members if they are cool with the time being pushed forward to 4 P.M EST otherwise we'll be losing 2-3 racers this tournament. But I'll try my hardest to make it convenient for everyone!

    It's fine don't worry. I'm sure there will be another time. Something to keep in mind for the next season though

    Good race last night everyone. Tire strategy killed me. So did the rain! Sorry you got booted Mana.

    Hey Manasseh, got a question. about points. There's one point for qualifying. Is that one point per class or overall pole?

    Good race to all indeed, and I feel you man, the rain caught me off guard as well. I only had Intermediates and was slipping and sliding everywhere.

    And it's all good man, I was a little peeved about it happening at the time (Because it felt like for once in a GT series I was doing an actual multi-class endurance) but I eventually got over it. I might be doing fixed host status for the rest of the Championship to ensure room stability. especially when doing Long hour Endurance races.

    It was overall pole, but seeing how the GTE class will never be able to get pole over a LMP1 I'm changing it to class pole position.

    That was definitely the most difficult race I've ever done.

    It all started pretty good in qualifying with my first ever pole, then some mistakes at the start of the race meant I was pretty far from Manasseh to challenge for the lead.

    After that I just tried to keep a safe pace and and aviod errors. The rain made everything really harder, but at the end was fun.

    Sadly I won't be able to race this Friday as I have to go to a family party. I'll be back for the next race.

    Yeah man! I told you that you were going to do a lot better this race! :sly: It really sucks that I disconnected but it was still fun to watch y'all race. Also congrats on the class win and overall win at Spa! Much deserved. I'm sad that you'll have to miss the next race though :( as I'll be the only LMP1 car racing. But I hope you have endless fun at your party man! :D

    But on another note, Those photos are gorgeous! definitely going to use them for the slide show at the end of the Championship!

    EDIT: hey @aruizb do you think you can send me the full image through message/inbox? I can't open the full image. Nevermind I can access them :cheers:

    OPEN SPOTS FOR INDIVIDUAL DRIVERS
    Due to low participation and dropping interest, I am going to a last resort to keep the last race alive. We are accepting drivers FOR THIS RACE ONLY. What does this mean? It means that while you are participating in the race, you will not be marked down as a participant of the tournament.

    We are taking up to 12 drivers (Only 4 of the 8 drivers signed up have shown up lately)

    I do not know how much interest this will spark but I will try to see if it appeals to any of you all.

    Also, you don't have to finish the entire race if you do not want to (If you're not a tournament Driver) If you want to run 30 minutes of the 2 Hour Endurance be my guest.

    I am opening these spots for any drivers looking for team practice races, time trial runs, Endurance car testing, or just drivers just looking for a good long Endurance race. If interested, be sure to leave the following information.

    Name:
    PSN Name:
    Car:
    Car Number:
    Class:


    We will also take 2 Garage 56 class entries.

    Garage 56 Entries will be Vision Gran Turismo Cars ONLY
    (Chaparral, and all SRT Tomahawks are prohibited from entering at all)

    Take this opportunity to race some clean drivers and meet some new people and possibly future competition or online racing teammates!

    SOLO NON-Tournament Drivers

    Me and you both. If we had the 7 drivers I had planned to have showed up, I wouldn't have to do this. But alas, we gotta do what we gotta do.

    I hope this at least sparks 4 peoples interest. 8 on the grid is enough for me to have fun. Even if the other 4 don't stay the whole time.

    Does the number have to be the one already on the vehicle or can I pick my own (which would be 57 ;))?

    Yes, you can choose any number you want. (1-200) :D so #57 is perfect!

    OK I have one last question. Excluding horsepower tuning, am I allowed to tune the tranny, drivetrain, and suspension?

    Oh yeah of course! you can tune transmission, drivetrain, suspension, downforce. Just no Turbo or engine upgrading.

    I was thankfully able to capture the win in the LMP1/Group C class with my Toyota TS030. Although @aruizb put up a good battle throughout the tournament and was impaired by a race absence.

    Thank you to everyone who participated in the first ever GT WorldWide Tour and my first sanctioned series! It didn't quite finish exactly how I planned it, but it was still a lot of fun nevertheless.
    I hope to see some new and returning faces in the next season!

    Also, special thanks and shoutout to @CowboyAce57 for hopping in the last race with us and hosting the Le Mans room for me! Much appreciated man!

    Thanks to
