    Hi folks,

    Would anyone other than myself be interested in a touring car championship structured similarly to the BTCC, WTCC or DTM? (PS4)
    I've noticed a few championships have been set up already, specifically for the GT series's. Unfortunately I don't have enough time to structure the championship myself but if other drivers are willing to, that would be much appreciated :)

    I could try it, perhaps. Car choice is rather limited for touring cars though.

    The three 80's motors should be enough for a good championship. Bagsie the Ford.

    I think WTCC and BTCC together got only a car or two, except if you try using cars that are decades older than others.
    Same goes to DTM.

    If you are thinking about creating a league, I would suggest GT4. It has 3-5 cars and nobody started any GT4 championship/league here yet.
    Since Project Cars doesnt get much categories, repetitions (i.e. championships with the same category) will be unavoidable.

    EDIT: You could think about Group A although. 3 cars, from 90´s.

    I'd be up for it mate!! Like a European championship using the British circuits, but also 2 o 3 from the continent too, Imola, Nurburgring, Bugatti circuit etc! Would be great to do this in a BMW E30!!!

    2 Races per meeting, the first being a short sprint race, then a longer main race with pit stops! Would be epic!

    We have to organize something i think, although i want to have 2 or 3 days, the weekend it comes out, to get used to the game as well before i delve into a big Online championship! Still very much up for it though!

    Only if you test them and they prove to be of similar performance.

    Bad form to advertise your series on someone else's series thread mate.

    No worries. I may compete in your championship at a later date, not sure if I can during early-mid June

    If we can organise a BTCC-esque and DTM-esque championship with the cars provided I'm sure it is possible, because the game features half of both race series' circuits on their calendars.

    I'm interested, but it would depend on cars/times.

    I think thats why SMS put 3 80's touring cars in the game. To race together.

    I suppose one car would be fine.

    The Clio Cup series would be a good idea, agreed?

    Yep! In theory we could create a championship with any car, and make it a one make championship only, to keep it nice and close! :)

    So an example would be as follows:

    Renault Clio Cup Championship (Teams could be allowed):

    2 races for each circuit (20 rounds)
    Quali if possible, 2nd race positions determined by race 1:

    - Brands Hatch
    - Donington Park
    - Hockenheim
    - Imola
    - Monza
    - Brno
    - Oschersleben
    - Oulton Park
    - Silverstone
    - Zolder

    That does sound pretty tasty. I didn't want to include too many British circuits

    What about a world tour with stops in America, England, Italy, Germany and Europe?

    That would be nice too. There'll probably be other posts coming over the summer. I think national, European, American, international championships are a good idea too

    Clio cup sounds good to me,
    I would be up for this, and could add a mandatory pitstop.

    I dont think that one make would be a bad ideia.
    But if you are looking for one make, it would be possible to use the in-game DTM car (I think its the Audi A4 DTM) or Focus BTCC. Clio Cup would be good too, but it is not related to BTCC/WTCC/DTM.

    My entry on this would depend in some factors... For example Im thinking of only getting PCars in july for personal reasons

    Yes mate sounds good that! Also as i stated above, the second race could be longer than the first with a pit stop, therefore a bit of strategy could be involved! What do you think?

    I will be preordering it however I won't have the time to play it until June. I think it's a good idea for most drivers to get used to the game for around 6-8 weeks anyway. If I can make the championship myself it'll probably start late June/early July.
    Sounds like a very good idea, especially if the weather is set to dynamic.

    I might create a separate thread. What do you think would be best: Touring cars, DTM, Ginetta G40s or Clios? I think Clios would be a good battle
