    Poster Sicks Race Room Iconic Cars.jpg

    After ten years racing on GT5, GT6 and Project Cars, "Sick's Race Room" is returning to Gran Turismo Sport for classic racing with iconic cars and clean drivers - Wednesday's from 20:30 to 21:30 UK Time. (Monday series continue on Project Cars 2)

    To aid with planning of series, if you are interested in racing with us please complete the Unicorn Car Questionnaire and leave your name below. There will be one make series, team events and an opportunity to use your unicorn cars in historic settings on realistically slippery rubber! Note - any events which feature the high value Unicorn cars will also feature low cost alternatives.

    The main thread and list of series will be coming soon!

    Note: the following cars which are not classified as high value may be used in one make, multi-make and / or multi-class series : Shelby Cobra 427, Shelby GT350 (Mustang), Chevrolet Corvette C2 and C3, Jaguar E Type, De Tomaso Pantera, Ferrari 365 GTB4, Porsche 356, Mini Cooper S 1965 (other cars may also be used).

    Porsche v Aston 1950's Battle which climaxes at Goodwood !!!

    Rounds 1-7 Porsche 356 Speedster: Power 142%, Weight 100% - Tyres Max = Comfort Soft (recommended Medium Front & Soft Rear)

    Rounds 4-7 Aston DB3S: Power 100%, Weight 100% - Tyres Max = Comfort Medium


    Drivers listed for Aston so far are: Zolon, Sick, Jammy and Andreas (difficult to believe Harsk hasn't got one yet as he has won 491m)

    Two Champions - Porsche Champion Rounds 1-7 (1 dropped score)
    Aston Champion - Porsche Rounds 1-3 and Aston Rounds 4-7 (1 dropped score)


    All Rounds = 2 x 15 minute races with only the best result counting.
    (If time permits there may be a third non-scoring fun race in reverse grid order)

    Round 1 = Sardegna Windmills Gravel - the car will automatically be fitted with dirt tyres

    Round 2 = Autodromo Lago Maggiore Centre II

    Round 3 = Dragon Trail Gardens

    Round 4 = Willow Springs, Big Willow

    Round 5 = Red Bull Ring Short Track

    Round 6 = Tsukuba

    Round 7 = Goodwood



    NB I tried all the suggested tracks and decided to use Alsace in a later series as it will take quite a lot of learning!

    I hope everyone enjoys this series and also hope we get more people to race the Aston - ideally I would like half the field - it sounds incredible and has a fantastic cockpit view. In testing the cars were very closely matched at the tracks used for rounds 4-7, but for the sake of fairness there will be 2 Champions (the cars may not be as close when used by faster, more skilled drivers).


    NB - If anyone new wants to join this series - you will be welcome - just leave your name in the thread!
    Fast or slow, novice or pro, young or old welcome - just try your best to avoid contact and give back a place if you gained it through contact.

    I have 4 of 20 million Unicorn cars, but they are very hard to get, therefore, I do not use them.

    Well, maybe you could bring back the "Shelby v Chevy" series, which doesn't happen since 2017.

    Hi Sick, I'm up for this type of shenanigans. Got all bar the Mk4 Ford and the Fuzzy GTO. Having said that, if there's one thing that GT teaches us, it's that the amount you pay for something has little to do with how much fun it is to play with :)

    Cheers, Zo.

    These are the 25 fastest races you can earn about one million cr. in about half an hour. (OK, some need cars that costs 20 mil) but here there are so nobody has to stick with Blue Moon Bay too long. I recommend the first one because once you tamed the car it is the easiest to gain the clean race bonus
    If there are any questions feel free to ask
    I have every race made except the endurance races but what cr. concerns they are def not the fastest

    The clean race bonus gives you 50% increase on Cr. and XP Points - so - in first race the normal 1st price is 230000 Cr, and with clean race it is 345000 Cr.
    To race clean you must not have accident with other cars (touching sideways is mostly OK) and do not go off track
    Yes you have to unlock them but I don´t remember very well how - its too long ago

    I´ll list the fastest races for beginner and amateur races as well

    Well I've updated again. Another 45+mins!! I spend more time updating GTS than I do driving on it.

    Anyways
    Yes, or at least I can afford. The rest, no. I do have some credits in the bank. Not that many though so don't get excited. :)

    Oh dear.

    Hey Zo. :tup:

    No you're not. ;)


    Can I just tag @buybon355 and @Sutsagrd - they might be interested in this.

    Thanks for the fanfare richroo!

    We are starting small (literally) with the Mini Cooper S 1965. If we race with those cars for a few weeks it will give new players a chance to earn some credits and buy some more cars.

    These are the cars which I recommend that people buy first:


    Shelby GT350 (Mustang)
    Shelby Cobra 427
    Chevrolet Corvette C2 1963
    Jaguar E Type 19661
    Porsche 356 - 1.2m credits
    Ford GT40 MK1 road car 2.8 m credits

    After those I would purchase:
    Chevrolet Corvette C3
    De Tomaso Pantera
    Ferrari 365 GTB4 Daytona - 1m credits

    I recommend getting all the above cars first before saving for one or more of the Unicorn cars. Series currently being developed / planned include:

    1960's GT's
    1970's GT's
    1954 Le Mans Series - Aston DB3S v Jaguar D Type with Porsche 356 as an alternative car
    1967 Le Mans Series - Ford v Ferrari v Jaguar with Ford GT40 MK1 as an alternative car (Possible GT class Shelby GT350 & Corvette C2)
    1964 Le Mans Series - Shelby Daytona Coupe, Alfa Romeo TZ2 - alternative cars currently being tested.

    You need to spend some mileage points so that you can get to the stage 2 power settings.

    See I know things about GTS too! :p
