    The Project CARS Quick Race Series is a small racing series with races under 10 minutes in length.

    The tracks and laps will be shown below. There will be a 30 minute qualifying session before each race to determine grid positions.

    Tracks: In order

    1. Nurburgring GP: 5 Laps
    2. Monza - 5 Laps
    3. Silverstone: 5 Laps
    4. Bathurst: 3 Laps
    5. Dubai: 5 Laps
    6. Sakitto: 5 Laps
    7. Spa: 3 Laps
    8. Road America: 3 Laps
    9. LeMans 24H - 2 Laps
    10. Nurburgring Nordschliefe - 1 Lap

    Maximum grid of 16 cars

    Points:
    1st: 10
    2nd: 8
    3rd: 6
    4th: 5
    5th: 4
    6th: 2
    7th: 1

    Class Points:
    1st: 5

    Bonus Points
    Lead an entire lap: 1

    How lobbies will work:

    Lobby will be set up at 8:30 GMT with a 30 minute qualifying session to allow players to join. Driver aids, damage and tyre/fuel wear will all be turned on and put on realistic settings. Pit stops are allowed. Grid will be determined through qualifying_ You will receive an invite to the lobby if you are on the participants list at 8:30. At 9PM, the race will start. If you arrive late, we will not restart the race. Replays will be saved and standings recorded. If you purposely try to run someone off the track, you get 0 points for that race. If you accidentally hit someone you lose up to 3 points (based on how serious the crash is and if how I judge how much you meant to crash). If you disconnect you get 0 points aswell (obviously). You are allowed to set up your car. Time for the race will be set at 15:00 and weather will be at sunny. Time and weather will be fixed.

    It may not be the first Saturday after it's released but the OP will be updated with race dates when I get the game.

    Maybe 3-4 weeks after release would be a good start. Everyone has enough time to get used to the physics.

    I suppose we will drive without tire wear and fuel consumption?

    would love to but 8pm might not always be possible for me, what with kids' bedtimes and sometimes working late. 9pm is better for me, but i'll be looking to add some of you guys on this forum to my PSN anyway for future random meet-ups and various shenanigans.

    Yes. Also, the final race (Sarthe 24 minutes) will have time and weather up to 60X but tire and fuel will be non-existent.

    Edit: @PRO_TOO It's just some fun racing, nothing serious and there will be a practice session before each race so you can get used to the car/track combo that we will be doing

    9 pm means 10 pm in Germany. Would be ok for me, especially in summer when it's pretty hot in my living room

    That's good. I picked that time because it is the best time I can think of that would suit most people

    don't worry, you have a T300, yes? that means you're guaranteed to be competitive :D

    You will be surprised how fast you will be after some practise. Your progress will be even better when you drive with faster guys ;)

    Just curious: Is tuning allowed or do we have a gentlemen's agreement to drive with stock cars?

    Got some more questions in my mind :D

    - Do you chose the track or will there be a poll with 4-5 options?
    - Communication via Party Chat or external (e.g. Teamspeak)?
    - Can we please use forced interior view? :D
    - Any assists allowed?

    As you can see..can't wait to start playing it on ps4 :D

    I'd be up for this for sure. Maybe get two lobbies running if the numbers call for it? I used to be an organiser at a large online racing league for some years so I know how much work can go into sorting all this stuff out.

    PSN name is Momus_Nine. Feel free to add me if you want any random online races outside of this.

    There is also a smartphone app for TS ;)

    But yes you're right, ps4 chat is limited to 8 people. Would be great if we can communicate via headset because a) it is much easier and b) it is possible during the race to avoid unnessesary collisions.

    yeah I'll probably be just chatting over the mic in-race. having said that, I assume I can race with the T300 whilst using the mic plugged into the DS4? never tried in Driveclub. does this set up work?

    Tuning is allowed
    Tracks will be set out in the order laid out in OP
    If possible, party chat but external will be fine
    No forced views
    Realistic assists

    We will use headset for those that use it.

    Thanks. Saw the track list, my question was just wrong
    Should be: Do you chose the cars or will there be a poll with 4-5 options.

    well, when I say chat, it'll probably more like random swearing and apologising for accidental rear-ending heheh

    There will be a quick poll with 3 options that will be set up on the thread 2 hours before the race starts. Results will be finalised 1 hour before race start.

    30 mins seems a lot for pre-race practise, leaves less time for racing on different tracks. would 15 mins be sufficient? would still get a decent amount of laps in.

    15 minutes does seem better. I'll make it 15.

    15 minutes it is.

    Also, example poll in OP to see if it would work right

    Can you change the poll options? If not, how about a poll with "Option A-C" and write in OP which options stands for which car/class
