    This season's driver grading system is much different from previous seasons. With the request of more in-depth grading, we now delivered a "series" somewhat like the GT World Championship race series. Grading will be run over the course of three weekends with three races. Once done, the stewards will gather all data from the events and analyze each driver's performance and place the driver in the class the stewards think they will fit best off of how they did. Car selection will also be based on how the drivers perform, so the better you do, the more likely you are to get one of your top choices. The ultimate goal for you as a driver is to not necessarily be racing others, but rather yourself and doing the best you can do.

    Specifics


    - Races will be run on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Rounds 1A, 1B, and 1C will be run on Fridays, rounds 2A, 2B, and 2C will be run on Saturdays, and finally rounds 3A, 3B, and 3C will be run on Sundays.
    - Each driver must compete in a minimum of 2 rounds in order to be eligible to race in the series.
    - There will be 3 cars and 3 tracks used for grading. Every car will race around every track adding up to 9 different car and track combos.
    - Each race will last 30 minutes.
    - The only car you will not be required to buy is the BMW M3 GT, the other cars must be run without any tuning or aero parts but are allowed to have a coat of paint of your choice as well as an oil change.

    Yay it's finally here!! Seems like an eternity since S3 haha, so very much looking forward to my second consecutive GTWC season. After a nice 4th in AM S3 and a new grading system this season, I could have a decent chance at attacking that AM crown... That's if @Ramalhinho91 goes into PRO this season, otherwise it'll be tough to challenge his AM title back-up :p.

    ORA GTWC S3 is what fully started my online racing life so I can't wait for this to start up again.

    Here's to a bigger and even better Season Four dudes!!!

    There's the fortunate/unfortunate chance that I may end up in Pro due to winning WEC :nervous:

    It's going to be a tough season guys! PRO class will be really, really hard. AM will be the same, last season I saw awesome races, it was really a shame that we hadn't coverage :p I had a fantastic experience on my first online championship, the relationship with my teammate and friend @Pubs16 throughout the entire championship helped a lot. We both won, not only me. :cheers:
    I'm really looking forward for this new and even greater challenge :)

    It will be some time. We are aiming for a September start. The Grading season, however, may start in August.

    Racing hards and Mediums are the two compounds used.

    Sad too see less people in the series than last season. Hopefully we'll get some more sign ups soon.

    Yeah we might have to run one lobby. Proves just how much GT6 has dropped in popularity.

    I would go to PCARS but nobody has it for PC...

    Still, hopefully we can get a good amount of signups.

    I won a digital copy of the game on a competition held on the forum of Playstation Portugal a couple of months after the release, but I don't have a PS4 or a compatible wheel... :guilty:
