    21:00 - Race 2 finish.
    21:05 - Race 3 start.
    21:25 - Race 3 finish.

    The season will consist of 24 rounds over 8 race meetings.

    1. Brands Hatch Indy 80's (8th July)
    2. Nurburgring GP/F (15th July)
    3. Suzuka East (22nd July)
    4. Cote D'Azur (29th July)
    Midseason Break
    5. Autumn Ring (26th August)
    6. Cape Ring South - 300th Race Special! (2nd September)
    7. Trial Mountain Circuit (9th September)
    8. MidField Raceway (16th September)

    Races which feature a weather change may hold a wet race. This will be based on real life weather, and will be announced one week before the race event. Original tracks weather will be determined by the weather in London. Each race's weather and time will be set to the following;

    Race 1 - 13:00
    Race 2 - 15:00
    Race 3 - 17:00


    Tyre/Fuel Depletion: Normal
    Damage: Light
    Grip Reduction: Real
    Slipstream Strength: Real
    False Start: On

    Driving line and ABS are the only driving aids allowed.


    A new lobby will be opened prior to race start. All drivers must wait to join until they are sent a message asking to join.

    There will be three races, each lasting roughly 20 minutes. Races will be set to a specific lap count and drivers must make a mandatory pit stop within a designated pit window.

    Race 1 grid formation will be determined on reverse championship standings. Drivers are expected to know their starting position prior to the race. When the track is reset all drivers must enter and stay in the pit. When they are called they must leave the pits and park up just past turn 1 in the order they were called. Drivers are now in parc ferme conditions and must wait until the race begins.

    Race 2 grid will be determined by a 12 minute qualifying session. The qualifying session will be held in practice mode, with the race starting automatically on a count down timer.

    Race 3 grid will be determined by reverse results from race 2. If a driver purposefully quits race 2, then at the start of the third race they must move off the track and rejoin at the back of the grid. Drivers must not leave the lobby after race 2.

    To keep the championship as close, interesting and open as possible, the top 5 drivers in the race will receive a power reduction for the next race. These penalties will be a percentage of each car's BHP. Drivers are only expected to know their own penalty, and a guide will be provided below.

    1st : -11%
    2nd : -8%
    3rd : -5%
    4th : -3%
    5th : -1%

    If a driver purposefully moves over at the end of the race to avoid a penalty, they will be required to start the next race at full penalty power.

    The top 5 drivers in the championship will use the penalties for race 1 the following week.

    Power Pen guide


    Team Formation

    Teams will be made up of two drivers. Both drivers are required to use the same car. Team mates do not have to run the same colour livery, but must display their driver numbers at all times.

    Part time drivers will be entered into the Independent championship. Independent drivers may also stand in for a team driver who is missing.

    Other

    All drivers are asked to join the GTTCC community club (ID - 1061823).

    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 incident and come to a decision, handing out penalties or reprimands if required. You will be given 24hrs to appeal if you wish.

    Track limits are defined by the kerbs or white lines, any driver who continually exceeds track limits will be awarded a time penalty.


    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 - 20 second time penalty at next race
    5 Reprimands - 20 point championship reduction
    6 Reprimands - Race Ban

    Drivers may be penalized for both on and off track behaviour.


    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.

    Any thoughts on what car we'll be using? More horsepower, more downforce, RWD please. :p

    In! Definitely FF racing cars around 300bhp and fairly light. That's what BTCC is famous for and too few series use them.

    @BenMillard / BenMillard / Privateer / #85 (Green pearl)

    Friends who may be interested. I've seen them enjoy at least one of: Seasonal Races, AI Hub challenges, WRS, Quick Match (clean drivers I met - yes they do exist!) or other GTP racing series.

    Can't wait to see the car - Hopefully a lightweight one with less power this year like the Roadster, but since Monza has been mentioned I'm expecting the Charger or Camaro '10.

    Multi car is winning by 2 votes, but for full time drivers it's equal.

    Running multi car with a small grid seems a bit pointless to me. Really need to know what people intend

    Yeah, that way it doesn't ruin the Team Championship if a driver doesn't turn up.

    I think allow drop scores for that. Best 4 results perhaps. Still gives people something to fight for.

    Do any of those brands include cars with more horsepower, downforce, and better looks? :p

    define more horsepower. We've always been low (low 300's) but that's enough. Slower is better in my opinion ;)

    But they are all race cars, that's all I will say for now.

    If anyone wants to be my teammate, I'll be happy to have you along for the ride. :)

    Edit: I'll be taking a Toyota, no matter what car will be chosen for it...though it's really looking like an 86 right now :lol:

    I have to sort out the time difference for Eastern U.S. Time. But I'd like to race if I'm able! Filled out the interest questionnaire.

    Thanks Ben for recommending me.

    Sounds like you want a GT500 series, not a touring car series. You can do both. @True-blue-8 has always done touring car series. Partly because they are rare. Partly because he does them very well.

    As for looks, Honda Integra Touring Car (DC5) 2004 from season 6 still looks pretty good to me:

    Thanks for the recommendation @BenMillard, however from what I can work out its a 5am start Saturday morning for me. Sounds like an interesting format with nice low weight 'low' power cars, they tend to be the most fun to drive, however I'd struggle to attend so I'll have to pass.
