    Wet weather
    Tracks that support wet weather options may be used. Weather will be set to the area of the track. If the track does not exist, then we will go by London conditions.

    Special Prizes
    Yes, I know there are a lot keen about this. It is 99.99% sure to happen.
    It will remain a secret until we reach closer to the end of the season. The Top 3 drivers will be awarded this special prize. We are very lucky to be offered it and can't thank this person enough. What? Who? Well, I guess you'll have to wait ;)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Other
    If a driver has an incident they wish to report, please send a PM to myself or another steward. The steward panel will then review the decision and come to a decision, handing out penalties or reprimands if required. If you see a penalty you are unsure about, please message to myself. You will be given 24hrs to appeal if you wish.

    Reprimands
    If you receive the following penalties on your licence, you will receive the following:

    3 Reprimands - Start at the back of grid for Race 1
    4 Reprimands - Drive through penalty at the next race
    5 Reprimands - 10 point championship reduction
    6 Reprimands - Race Ban
    Drivers may be penalized for both on and off track behaviour.

    Drivers are also expected to follow the GTTCC Rulebook

    All rules are there for a reason. All drivers, including the host, do not receive special credit. Please read all rules before signing up. I was not aware of that rule is not a valid excuse.

    Drivers who are AWOL will receive a warning, after this a reprimand. All drivers are expected to notify the host before the race whether they can race or not.

    A HUGE thank you to everyone who contributed ideas and helped out in any way possible. Also to @sb360 for the data and logos :cheers:

    The GTTCC is a group of people who enjoy clean racing, socializing and having fun. We try to get every driver involved and feel welcome. Any questions or suggestions, don't hesitate to ask. Best of luck and have fun, here's to another great season. :tup: :cheers:

    Tsukuba I know i'm scared, but in our tests it didn't seem too bad.
    Can assume details same as last season, and with Emo?

    Will just add entries on for now. Will sort the specifics (colours teams etc) in a while



    So straight away it indicates the OP has not been read. Please do so :tup:
    Same as mikey, will be added on but expect further instructions from myself and the stewards

    Anyone who wishes to be a steward?

    I can't believe people are bringing up the track list WITHOUT mentioning the fact that there is no Big Willow...

    That track is tradition, for shame... :(

    It was the track I dreaded most and the round I most enjoyed. I have really warmed to it now. Definite tight twisty circuit feel to this seasons list, I like races with lots of laps, I love Tsukuba, this should be good :D

    It's looking that way at the moment

    I'll remember it for my amazing crash at the last corner after my DC

    What account are you using? mikey, Narcotic, MAB? :lol: :tup:

    Finally, a worthy team, that 'Red Rum' or something just weren't quite on par with DPR ;)

    I really hope I could pick a RWD this season; I learned one important thing with GTTCC: I just don't know how to drive FFs (edit: a well suited name BTW) ! :lol:

    That's how I felt in Season 1. Running around trying to crack the lap times on your own is so frustrating. In a pack it's one of the best. :tup:

    Absolutely, I think its partially because I did the most testing because I was worried about it. A definite fan now, always helps to like tracks that everyone else hates.
