    For a while, I had been doing some research in my free time and wanted to see about arranging a Stock Touring Car Challenge or STCC for short I guess you could call it (not to be confused with the Swedish Touring Car Championship).

    Here are the basics of what I come up with:

    • The list of cars that you have to pick from is 75 cars. (This is including cars that have separate models but are the same vehicle. The GT-R GT3 has too many models to name, so I just listed the one GT-R GT3 to alleviate some of the confusion, any of the GT-R GT3 models may be ran, aside from the 15th Anniversary)
    • Each of those cars has been put into a class based on it's PP and fastest lap around Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and Suzuka Circuit 2014
    • Each class has one wild card thrown in, these wild cards being Tuner vehicles
    • The class in order from lowest to highest goes Beginner, Intermediate, Pro, and Veteran (note that this is just the grading scale for the cars, and not indicative of driver ability)
    • No Stealth or Anniversary models are going to be allowed, hence why they are not on either list

    R18: Nürburgring Nordschleife (Night Race)


    This is how the season would play out. Now before you ask, yes there are two classes in each schedule. The reason for this is because creating 4 separate schedules was too much, so we created 2. To this end, we decided to have 2 classes run their race at the same time. So beginner and intermediate will run together, and then pro and veteran will run together. This means we would need 7 drivers for each class, as we need at least 2 people to spectate to ensure that there is no unnecessary contact between drivers and to keep the racing clean.

    If you're wondering why Beginner and Intermediate are running on the Nurb 24h versus Pro and Veteran on the Nordschleife, that is because I wanted the drivers who wanted to drive the faster cars a bit of a larger challenge since the Nordschleife at night is pitch black. Since the 24h has lit up sections, I felt it would be fairer for the other drivers (especially if they are unfamiliar with any of these cars or tracks) to do this.

    I have garnered interest from a few people, but I need to get back in contact with them to see what car they had chosen. So for now, all cars are fair game.

    Oh yeah, there are some vehicles that are far too fast for their class (ie; GT-R Touring Car, Z06 Vette LM, Ford GT LM Spec II Test Car) so these cars will be given additional weight so as to balance them with the rest of the class.

    And there are other cars such as the Camaro Z28 Race Car '69 and the Challenger R/T Race Car '70, that need their gears adjusted so that they can be competitive with their class. To this end, the only part that was adjusted was the top speed. Everything else was left unchanged.

    There is a limit of one person per car. This means that if someone were to pick up the GT-R GT3, all other GT-R's in that cars class are therefore off limits to everyone else. Yes, this includes the GT-R TC. This is done to make people select a car that may or may not be outside of their comfort zone. It also forces variety. With the amount of cars available to select, this shouldn't be too much of an issue, but I did it to be sure.

    I'll be honest, I wanted to avoid making a post about this on GTP for a while, because I wanted to see if I could garner the interest I needed for this. Unfortunately, this did not work so I came here.

    If you are interested, please post in this thread, and I will bring up new information as I develop this further. I still need to decide if we are going to run laps, or run it endurance style. Tire wear will be on, and I believe it will be set to normal.

    Thanks for your interest! And I hope to race with many of you in the future!

    This is very close to what I'm wanting to do with my GTB Championship (as in the one in my signature). I'd actually be quite interested to do this. May I join?

    I'll have to see what I've got and the cars I'd be willing to buy first, but I'm pressed about the fact that, assuming you join the Veteran or Pro class with me or I join the Beginner class with @Jon Terry , the races will be 1v1, so for now I'm going to go in the Intermediate class so the races will have more drivers. I'll probably take the Elise 111R or Silvia S15 as the NSX is unavailable (Most likely Elise).

    Yeah unfortunately it doesn't seem a lot of people are interested. This is designed to give everyone a shot, I just need more people.

    If you could spread the word that would be greatly appreciated

    I'll do my best to promote. I think it will be great fun. If nothing else maybe we could race then without a full series?

    I'll put this thread into my signature, that'll probably help. You might also want to make the thread more complete, make it Open instead of Draft and use the FGTC4 thread as a guide to making the thread, like I did with my GTB Championship.

    Also, count me in with the 111R.

    @Jon Terry I'd understand why you'd choose a class because of a car, that was part of what I did

    I'm okay with that.

    Alright I'll put you down for the 111R. And I'll take a look at that thread you mentioned.

    I'm honestly surprised that people are still interested in this. I hadn't been able to check up on it because work has been throwing my hours all around.

    You guys can pick from any of the categories you want, even if it's just two of them.

    I figure this is a way for us to potentially get prepped for GT Sport (for those that were unable to get beta access).

    I figure weekends are best, so it would likely be either Saturday or Sunday (depending on timezone and availability)

    We can start anytime within the next couple of weeks. I just got my wheel setup again so I need to do some driving to get used to the feeling again.

    Sadly, my timezone is 5 hours ahead of you, so my presence will be very complicated at this point. :(
