GT4 Parity Cup

Every two weeks on Friday @ 22:00 GMT

4611539762.jpg


Want to drive a roaring Mustang, a mighty Vantage, or an agile Evora, on some of the most famous tracks in the world?

The GT4 Parity Cup is for you! :)👍

* * *

1. Parity Racing

The GT4 Parity Cup is organized by the Parity Racing Club, and will therefore comply with the Parity System. This system intends to create close races, whatever the drivers level:
  • A capped lap time is set before each race, depending on the track.
  • Every competitor must ensure he's not faster than this capped lap time during the race.
  • Any car setup is allowed, but the drivers may need to use the power limiter and/or ballast in order to comply with the capped lap time.
In fact, each driver must do his own BoP depending on the track and capped time.


2. Race day

The GT4 Parity Cup will take place on 8 race days (each Friday night), going as follows:
  • 21:45 GMT - Warm-up
  • 22:00 GMT - Qualifying
  • 22:05 GMT - Race 1
    • 10 minutes
    • Grid start with false start check (order of qualifying time)
    • Time progression x4
    • Tire wear / fuel depletion: Very Fast
  • 22:15 GMT - End of race 1
  • 22:20 GMT - Race 2
    • 30 minutes
    • Rolling start with formation lap (reverse order of race 1 finish)
    • Time progression x2
    • Tire wear / fuel depletion: Fast
    • 1 mandatory pit stop
  • 22:50 GMT - End of race 2


3. Race settings
  • All aids allowed
  • Boost: Off
  • Grip reduction on track edge: Real
  • Slipstream: Real
  • Mechanical damages: Light
  • Real-time weather (fixed one week before the race)

4. Point system


1st - 10 points
2nd - 8 points
3rd - 6 points
4th - 5 points
5th - 4 points
6th - 3 points
7th - 2 points
8th - 1 point
Pole Position - 1 point
Fastest Valid Lap - 1 point​

A driver's best 6 results of the 8 race days will count toward his season points.


5. Penalties

In the PRC championships, rule infringements lead to time penalties. These time penalties are added to the final time of the driver who committed the infringement, and may modify his ranking.
  • Capped time:
At the end of the race, the laps faster than the capped time are recorded. Each of these laps leads to a penalty, which is the difference between the lap time and the capped time. Each penalty is then multiplied by the number of "too-fast" laps.

If a driver beats the capped time during the qualifying, he will keep his position on the grid but the penalty will be applied to the first race.

If a driver beats the capped time because of slipstream, there is no penalty.
  • Unfair driving:
Each driver is expected to race like a gentleman. Every unfair or dangerous move will lead to a time penalty:
- Dive bomb
- Push
- Block in straights
- Cut corners to gain time​

You're all welcome to join. If you're interested, please join the Parity Racing Club and let me know which car and number you'll take!

See you on track! :gtpflag:

I'm in of course, #42. Dibs on a Toyota (though I'll kit up a Camaro as well.)

Any objections to running the '13 86 instead of the '12? I believe they're identical apart from the former having a tow hook and roll cage. ;)
 
Currently I'm edging towards sticking with some truly great British engineering...
But which one!? :boggled:

I have time to play with each and see how they fair, the Prodrive boys in Banbury are prepping both cars, so I expect some track action soon. ;)

Shall look forward to this calendar, and hopefully I can wrap up the championship in the touring cars with a couple of strong wins :sly:

Yeah it's the same manufacturer with exact same specs, OK for me :)👍

I personnally prefer the Vantage. Beautiful car! And in fact Lotus is a Malaysian manufacturer now :P But the Evora should be fun to drive, it's very lightweight (as for all the Lotus cars)!

He he, you'll have to win some races to steal @amarynceos' first place ;)

I've tried a few cars on Apricot Hill (great test track btw)... What a pleasure to drive RWD again!! These are all very balanced cars (except the Lotus, how the heck to you domesticate that thing?!).

Now I'm hesitating between the Vantage for its look and comfort, the Mustang for its beautiful sound, and the Nissan because it's fun to drive!

Edit: not hesitating that much actually, I love the Vantage :)

Hey @Tijee! I think you remember me from somewhere (GT3 CLUB)! I'm interested in joining this series! I'll take #48, but idk which car I'll take yet.

I will join on one condition: You let me back out from a race depending on if there are GT3 Club matters I have to attend to! ;):P

Hi Travis, welcome! Don't worry you can join when you want depending on your schedule. Our races are on Friday nights at 22:00 GMT. All the rules are in the first post.

See you on track! :)👍
 
Has anyone done some testing around Apricot Hill yet? The capped time should be around 1'24 or 1'25, what do you think?

Sounds good. I've mislaid most of my notes on what times I ran with several cars last week, but it looks like I managed a 1:23.8 with the Toyota 86 at 400 hp.

I'm still torn between the 86 and the Camaro, guess I'll decide after test day.

BTW, Apricot will probably be harder on the tyres than anywhere else, I ran several tests at other tracks and wear was much less of an issue. Those long sweepers really kill the rubber (or maybe it's just my ham-fisted driving :dopey: .)
 
Don't forget that the tyre wear setting (and fuel depletion) will be set in order to simulate a 1 hour race!
  • 1st race: 15min, very fast tyre wear
  • 2nd race: 30min, fast tyre wear
 
Test round announcement

Attention please!​

The test round at Apricot Hill this Friday will have a capped time of 1'24.000.

Please tell me if you're struggling with this time (the sooner the better).
 
I ran my first test last night, it's been quite hectic last few weeks.
Easily managed to get under the time in the lotus, so had been dialing back the power in that to bring inside cap.
Tried a couple of others two as still not sure what car I wanna run!

The lotus is a real handful, but I have at least managed to tame it round the hill.

I have however decided on my new colour scheme ;)

  • Track: Apricot Hill
  • Capped time: 1'24.000
  • Max. 500bhp

  • All aids allowed
  • Do not cut corners and avoid contact

See you guys on track! :gtpflag:
 
@Tijee one thing you have not clarified... As far as I can see, which direction is the Hill running?

I have assumed it is normal or forward direction!
