    Introduction

    This is the GT-Sport: Super GT championship. Races will be a mixed grid of GT500 (6 to 8) and GT300 (8 to 10) race cars.
    GT500 racers will have to contend with slower GT300 cars, potentially lapping multiple times, potentially being beaten by too!
    GT300 racers will be fighting for the GT300 title, yet they have every right to take the racing line if they’re legitimately ahead on track, even if the car behind is a GT500 spec car.
    Races will last roughly 1 hour. For example, 35 laps of Suzuka


    Lobby Settings

    Tyre wear: 1x
    Fuel usage: 2x
    Damage: Heavy
    Ghost lapped cars: Off
    Flag rules: On
    Laps: Per Race Basis. Note: Races will last about 1 Hour
    Shortcut penalties: Weak
    Other penalties: Off
    Tyre type: Racing Slicks
    Softest compound: Medium compound
    Hardest compound: Medium compound
    Starting fuel: Default
    Start type: Super-GT Format Manual Rolling start
    Aids: TC and ABS only


    Super-GT Format Manual Rolling start

    Racers will be lined up using the GT-Sport Grid Start format. They will then be required to complete a warm-up-lap before the race starts on lap 2 using normal Rolling Start rules. GT300 must wait 30 seconds before moving off and keep this as the minimum distance to the last GT500 car.
    • No passing before your car has crossed the line
    • No passing at any point in the warm-up lap. If you do give the position back immediately
    • GT300 cars are required to wait 30 seconds before beginning their warm up lap.
    • The lead car must run at about 80mph max until they "go" .
    • No one else can go full speed until the lead car has decided to.
    • The lead car must be on the pit straight when they decide to start.
    • Cars are NOT allowed to slow up the field.
    • Cars must be in a staggered formation on the pit straight. However people are free to do as they wish when the leader has decided to race.

    Weight Handicaps (success ballast)

    [​IMG]
    52kg+ Fuel Flow Restrictor information
    Any car running a success ballast of over 51kgs will require a 1% power decrease


    Visual Requirements

    [​IMG]
    • Cars will be required to run a small square or rectangle, coloured correctly as above, on the rear of the car containing the car’s race-number.
    • Cars will be required to use the correct number boards and correct number-decals (2018 decals, correct 2018 font too, shared on my GTS profile).
    • Cars must not show any offensive messages or decals.
    • GT500 Cars must use the default windscreen banner.
    • GT300 Cars must use the black windscreen banner.
    • Weight decals must be used to detail how much weight is currently being ran as ballast. Must be on the SIDE of the car, both sides preferable. I (GT-Welsh) have all of these and have shared them (see below for full list).
    [​IMG]


    Points System

    [​IMG]

    Race: see above.
    Pole position: 1 extra point.

    The points will be allocated to the GT500 and also the GT300 grid results. The driver that finished 1st in GT300 will get 20 points, even though they may of finished 6th on the grid (GT500 in-front).


    Qualifying

    Tyres
    Tyres will be RM, the same as the race tyre.

    Format
    Qualifying is normally run in a two-stage knockout format. However due to having a smaller field we will run a more standard single-stage format.

    Qualifying with a twist
    Anyone not at qualifying will start at the back, in a random order (if multiple people don’t qualify).
    Qualifying will be ran as a GT-Sport 15min time-limited race. This allows us to record the session and put in a hard time-limit.
    Admins will review the race and collate the fastest times to create a starting grid order. Obvious thing to note here is, in this race the finishing position does not matter. The person with the fastest lap could finish the “race” in last and then obviously start pole.


    Scrutineering

    This will take place before qualifying. During this time we will check livery, power and weight requirements. Racers then need to save this setup in order to save the accepted power and weight.
    Racers not at qualifying will have to organise other scrutineering sessions. People without a checked car will not be able to qualify or race.


    Things to note

    Power and Weight
    GT-Sport uses % (of original value) to change power and weight numbers. Due to this we will not be able to set these very accurately, we will do our best to work out the % needed for each person. This is why we have stated the power and weight values, rather than 100%, 1% on one car can be different to 1% on another, so using +-% is unfair. We will work out the best % to use based on actual KG gains.

    Behavior
    Arguing over a racing incident will not be tolerated in game, make a complaint to the admins of the series and leave it be. There will be potentially 14 other drivers that simply do not care, so leave it out. It just puts negativity into the series.


    Practice Sessions
    Practice sessions will be ran quite often, add me (GT-Welsh) on PSN to easily see me in-game when I'm hosting them.

    Update
    Cars added:
    - GT300 Honda NSX Gr.3
    - GT300 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Gr.3

    These cars have GT3 versions IRL, the Honda even (afaik) has an actual GT300 car IRL also. Specs (current BOP) will be added later when I get back.


    For people wanting to use the new cars
    If you were signed into google when you signed up you should be able to edit your entry yourself.

    If you were not signed in, and you didn't save the edit link the form gave you at the end for future edits, I can edit your entry no problem at all :) .

    Added an example livery (my GT300 car) to the second post for reference.
    Please note GT500 cars use the same livery regulations with the only changes being:
    • The use of a WHITE number board (still the 2018 SuperGT decal, there is a white version).
    • The use of a WHITE small number rectangle or square on the back of the car.
    • The headlights are CLEAR
    GT500 is white, GT300 is yellow, simples.

    At this early stage liveries are ignored but make sure you have one ready soon

    We officially have a full grid. Registrations from this point go towards a potential division 2 if we get loads more, or reserve drivers (people will drop out, probably before race 1).

    sign up if you want :) Im not expecting everyone to turn up anyway so it's cool if you're a maybe. We have a full grid so any sign ups now are technically for reserve spots.

    Two division sounds cool, after three races you can take the top half from both in one division and botte half in the other, so you get a little more competition

    Evening guys, GT300 cars now require a Black window banner on GT300 cars, as the white one would clash with the GT500 regs. IRL GT300 is yellow/orange banner but we don't have that, so black ends up being the only option. Sorry for doing this so long after making the thread.

    Afternoon guys.

    Regulation change: Tyre compound selectable is now Medium.

    Regulation change: Tyre wear rate is now 1x.

    Medium compound slicks mimic the grip levels and stability in real life more closely. Sorry for the change but there is still plenty of time for testing.

    See NISMO TV on YouTube to see some racing and check it out yourself.

    Thanks

    Tweaks to the race start regulations. This is more inline with real life SuperGT.

    We recommend people watch some racing and a race start in particular to understand fully. See the second post.

    Looks very good but I think you actually have to use the real Super GT number decals.

    You mean the 4s? I'd assumed they were the correct font decal. the numbers themselves don't have to be real numbers for the car. To clarify a bit :)

    Thanks crazy. I was goin all out to use correct numbers but 24 was already reserved so just used my trademark 44 instead. But no rules on numbers as long as liverys are as close to the real cars are running correct numberboards and font. Thanks for the feedback and see you on the track again soon :)
