Race starts automatically after all qualifying timers are up. The tire compound you use for qualifying will carry over for the race. Everyone must be in their cars and ready to go at 7:20pm because once qualifying is started you will not be able to join in the lobby anymore. Qualifying Rules GTS now offers in game qualifying but there are still some rules that need to be applied on top of that for our Series. 1. No Pitting - Under no circumstance will anyone be allowed to pit during the 10 minute qualifier. This includes for damage or tires. If you come into the pits during qualifying then you must remain there until the race begins. 2. OutLap - Fuel Burning or Tire Saving must only be done under the OutLap. You must be up to race speed at the end of your OutLap and then for the remainder of your qualifying session. Anyone not able to keep race speeds can pull off the track and sit in their cars until qualifying is over. Do not leave your car. 3. Do not leave your car - Starting the qualifying session is the same as starting the race and if for any reason you leave the track or your car the game will not let you rejoin. After qualifying is over it automatically goes straight into the race. Game will not let anyone join in once the qualifying session has started. Welcome to the 2020 MSN (Monthly Saturday Night) 1.5hr Manufacturers Endurance Race Series Championship. The 2020 Season will mark our 3rd Year on GTSport and I'm excited to announce we will be doing a Manufacturers Endurance Series this year using both the Gr.3 & Gr.4 classes while racing them in alternating months. There will be a limit of 3 put on each Manufacturer for use. Once that limit is reached then that Manufacturer will no longer be available. Once you have chosen your Manufacturer you are then required to stay with that Manufacturer for the entire season/year. Anytime you sign up to race through the season you must use your selected Manufacturer. Some Manufacturers have more than two cars and you can use any car under the Manufacturer that you have chosen. Championship Point Payouts This year we are running our first Championship Point System with Prize Payouts for the top 3 in points. The top 3 in points at the end of the 2020 season will now receive a P1. Your choice of a Twelve month paid subscription to Playstation Plus or a Playstation Store Gift Card. $60.00 value P2. Your choice of a Three month paid subscription to Playstation Plus or a Playstation Store Gift Card $25.00 value P3. Three month paid subscription to Playstation Plus only. $25.00 value That's a $110 total in prizes All prizes will be bought & paid for online through the PS Store. Then each person who is one of our top 3 prizes winners will receive a Private Message with the code to activate their winnings at the end of the year. *Points Standings* Spoiler: Point Standings Drop Points are marked in Red Did Not Finish (DNF) DNF points are eligible for one or both of your Drop Score Points. Did Not Race (DNR) DNR points are eligible for one or both of your Drop Score Points. Did Not Show (DNS) DNS points will not be eligible for either one of your Drop Score Points Points System Spoiler: Point System How our new point system will work. I like to run things a bit different from most other people if you haven't noticed, so our point system will be no exception. It's a very simple & easy formula for everyone to keep track of. You will receive the amount of points as your numbered finishing position. So the person with the lowest total points at the end of the year will be your champion. 1st place = 1 points 2nd place = 2 points 3rd place = 3 points 4th place = 4 points 5th place = 5 points 6th place = 6 points 7th place = 7 points 8th place = 8 points 9th place = 9 points 10th place = 10 points 11th place = 11 points 12th place = 12 points 13th place = 13 points 14th place = 14 points 15th place = 15 points 16th place = 16 points Did Not Finish (DNF) (16 Points ) DNF points are eligible for one or both of your Drop Score Points. Did Not Race (DNR) (18 points) DNR points are eligible for one or both of your Drop Score Points. Did Not Show (DNS) (20 points) DNS points will not be eligible for either one of your Drop Score Points There will be no point awarded for Pole Positions or Fastest Laps. Anyone who joins in before the March 7th race will be allowed to compete for the Points Championship. Anyone who joins in after the March 7th race will not be eligible for the Points Championship. Two throw away race will be allowed per member competing in the Points Championship. This will allow everyone the opportunity to miss two races throughout the year and it will not effect them negatively. If you do not miss a race all year then your highest scores will be tossed out. New Lobby Times Spoiler: MSN, IRS, ARL Race Times These times are for the start of each leagues races only and do not include any practice MSN = 7:20pm to 9:00pm IRS = 9:20pm to 10:30pm ARL = 11:00pm to 11:45ish Here at MSN we have many members who either own or race in other popular leagues. Because of this we are teaming up with ARL & IRS so that our start and end times do not overlap eachother. In return this gives everyone the opportunity to run the Trifecta race once every month. Starting off with MSN then on to IRS and ending the night with ARL. It will be the ultimate endurance test for anyone willing to run 5+hours of intense racing across 3 different leagues. MSN start times for 2020 will now be 30 minutes earlier than in 2019. Almost everyone was already in the lobby at this time practicing so I don't feel this change will have any negative impact on our members. However it will open up the opportunity for more people to race in all 3 leagues.
