    - Rules

    This is a no-contact series; damage is set to heavy.

    Racing Medium, Racing Hard, Intermediate and Full Wet are the only tyres allowed.

    Modding or hacking will be immediately punished.

    During qualifying you must not impede (block) other drivers intentionally.

    There will be a formation lap at the start of the race. The leader will set the pace to 100kph or 62mph.
    Once the cars pass the second to last corner, the leader will slow down to 60kph to do the double file formation.
    Weaving during the formation is allowed only when single file.
    Odds (1, 3, 5, 7, 9 etc) on the inside and evens (2, 4, 6, 8, 10 etc) on the outside.
    KNOW AND KEEP YOUR QUALIFYING POSITION.

    2 wheels must be on the track at all times. Kerbs and white lines are part of the track.

    If 2 people or more have crashed and are running damaged, they must write "Y" on the in-game chat. The leader will type "SC" and will slow down to 80kph. Any damaged cars can pit for repairs. When they reach the pack, race will be restarted on the end of the lap.
    The pit window is open for tyre changes and refuelling during FCY.

    Car changes are banned while season in progress.

    Hey there, I have a question about the BoP: Is there one? Because the cars aren't equal (I speak out of experience) with the same amount of hp and kg. I looked through your club and found no information about that whatsoever.
    And why does the rulebook look so familiar to GGTC by @MonGnoM (FCY is called only C, the speed limit of FCY/C is also 100km/h, damaged cars can go to pit (damage heavy) and as soon as they catched up the race restarts)

    EDIT: Forgot something, is a success ballast system in place to slow the dominant driver/car down?

    No, there is no BoP, like the real life GT300, but if there are big differences I'll make one.

    The FCY rule, I had no idea it matched Alex's one, I might alter the speed to 80kph.

    And a success ballast will be put in place, the thread and rules aren't complete yet. Season starts mid October so we have plenty of time.

    Thanks for looking up though. :):tup:

    Edit: I changed the FCY rules.

    We are starting on the 14th too, coincidentally. The starting date isn't fixed though and might be subject to change.

    https://supergtworld.wordpress.com/tag/balance-of-performance/ (first result on Google "supergt bop" btw)

    You participated in GGTC (Pre-Season Round and Quali in Bathurst (Round 1) this year so far.

    Same as RRD, I have to see how everything resolves until October and could join (Would take the Mazda Re Amemiya Asparadrink RX-7 EDIT: the 2004 model)

    But the problem is that both 2004 and 2006 versions have the #7 Number. So, I believe that Trevor might have to switch from #7 to #17, as the #7 number is taken by @RacingHardTV.

    I don't own a PS3 anymore otherwise I'd be tempted to join. Series looking good but I'd take a look at cars specs(BoP), as I remeber the RX-7 is quite a bit faster than other GT300 cars.

    Btw John won't you be playing GTSport in mid October? It releses just days after you plan to start the season.

    Hey Fuji-san, long time no see.

    I know you don't have a PS3 anymore, you said so a while ago in the Storagetrunks thread :lol:

    I haven't tested the cars yet, I will do so when I get back home tomorrow.

    Completely forgot that but I will get it around Christmas time, when the series ended and I get done with GT6.

    Thanks for checking out though ;)

    I'm still into doubts over the series' features, and I'm having an idea to put GT500 cars into the mix, to basically make it a multi-class series. Although I'm not into making this a reality, what's your opinion guys?

    EDIT: POST 1 UPDATED

    - Added the "Race Timetable" section.
    - Race dates updated.

    @monkeywall I was planning to start earlier but I start this late for people to sign up. I'll see what I can do.

    If you cannot make it then see you on GT Sport mate.
