    Greetings to all! After many successful series on GT6 and the European GT3 championship i hosted In the last months with mixed success, i'm back with a new serie plan.

    The car is one that is a pleasure to drive and even with its lack of ABS it's very easy to bring around any and all tracks. Beside that it's one of the most interesting rides in Project Cars when using real aids.

    The idea is to have close races between clean drivers


    Rules
    All drivers on same Car. BMW M3 GT3.
    The assist are to be set on REAL; this means that the car has NO ABS, NO Stability control, just Traction control.
    Damage is set to REAL
    Tyres and Fuel REAL
    Weather and day progression are set to REAL
    Auto Start Engine: Yes
    Flags & Penalties: On

    Racing Rules
    Since PCars does not allow yet "no-tune" option all drivers can tune their cars to their wishes.
    Contacts should be kept at minumum and all drivers should try their best to avoid pileups.

    Race day is composed of 2 Races of 25-30 minutes. Before each race there's a 15 minutes qualifying session.

    Weather is based on real world Forecasts and is announced 5 days prior to the race so that all drivers can train in the correct weather settings.

    Points

    In case of a 2 Room serie points will be awarded as follows:

    Room 1 Room 2

    1st 40 1st 21
    2nd 37 2nd 18
    3rd 35 3rd 16
    4th 33 4th 14
    5th 32 5th 13
    6th 31 6th 12
    7th 30 7th 11
    8th 29 8th 10
    9th 28 9th 9
    10th 27 10th 8
    11th 26 11th 7
    12th 25 12th 6
    13th 24 13th 5
    14th 23 14th 4
    15th 22 15th 3
    16th 21 16th 2

    In Case of 1 room Serie points will be awarded in this fashion:

    Room

    1st 30
    2nd 24
    3rd 20
    4th 16
    5th 14
    6th 12
    7th 10
    8th 9
    9th 8
    10th 7
    11th 6
    12th 5
    13th 4
    14th 3
    15th 2
    16th 1

    Need to think about this one. No ABS and a DS4 hasn't been fun for me so far!

    I can confirm I mainly played with a wheel but with a pad it's absolutely not out of reach without ABS ! Not necessarily harder than with a pedal set at least :D

    I'm interested but as I'm moving next month I'm not sure when I'll have my wheel or even my PS4 ready so depending on this and when the series start I might not be able to take part, at least for a start. :nervous:

    I'll defiantly give it a try. I've done a few races without ABS already and some cars it was ok and could probably get used to with practice, others there was no chance.

    I think I tried no ABS once in GT6. It was impossible with a DS3!

    The M3 GT seems like it has ABS, seriously, I didn't notice initially it didn't have it!

    Mechanical grip is totally biased in GT6 IMO so it has a huge impact on wheel locking too !
    It's much more easier to find the traction limit under braking on pCARS.

    Depends on subscriptions, mate... We might even start earlier if there's not too much interest and might be a good training for drivers that will run in your GT3 world serie... I might change a bit the calendar tought. A couple of tracks i do not like at all, actually 3 lol :D

    Yeah exactly and it's pleasant and rewarding to drive like that, not an insane frustrating thing like in gt6...

    It is a quicker car than the other GT3 cars. In the right hands it is 1 or 2 seconds a lap quicker than the others around most 2 minute laps. That is why it is banned.

    It is also banned in the series I am running on a Sunday evening. It would just end up as being a Bentley one make series, as everyone would pick that car, so as not to be at a disadvantage to others. If there are car number limits, the people who do not have it would be at a disadvantage. It just isn't fair on all people.

    All cars have their advantages and disadvantages, but the Bentley is another level again around pretty much most tracks, except ones with massive straights, as it cannot go quicker than 174MPH, but it gets there really quickly.
