    Everything is currently in draft stage, so i'll welcome all interest and suggestions that will come from all sources.

    Welcome to The European GT3 Serie!

    Welcome, drivers! After many years of committement to GT6 it's finally time to move forward, aiming at the future and this is the reason i'm giving birth to this serie.
    About, me the organizer;

    I'm azidahaka here on GTP, karsten_beoulve on PSN. I've been racing on GT5 and GT6, being a seasoned driver in the BTCC Serie that were run by @geeky and @rolo912011 , then i started my own pretty successful Endurance serie with the FGTA GT300 serie, and then the sponsored by @stephen_vann STORAGETRUNKS.co.uk series that had some outstanding drivers joining in like @xChris93_ @SkengD @ozwheels .... Along the time i had the Chance to partecipate in the GTP 6 Hours of Nurburgring GP/F - And i was one of the winners of GT Cup Class {With @NinjaEvo & @Storm_SP17} in the #74 GTORacing Lotus Elise 111R '04

    All the drivers that raced along can be asked about my race behaviour and how seriously i take the Online Racing, i'm never one of the "Fast" guys, but i'm solid, fair and careful. And this are the drivers i wish will join up.



    The serie in a nutshell

    Every Thursday, at BST 8:00PM, we would have a race day.

    The race day will be made of Practice sessions, Qualifying sessions and Races.

    Room will be open early with practice, when time reaches 7:50PM we'll have a 10 minutes Q session that will decide the grid for Race 1.

    Race 1 will be a "sprint" race. It'll be around 30 minutes long and there won't be any pit stop required. Pit lane will be opened in case drivers will need repairs.

    After Race 1 ends we'll have a second Q session of 10 minutes for sorting Race 2 Grid. This will be changed if SMS will give us a reverse grid option in the future.

    Race 2 will be Main Race and will last 60 minutes.



    Room Details and weather

    We'll use the most real settings available for both races concerning weather. Weather will be based on real weather forecasts this way all drivers will be able to test their setup with enough time and know what will happen. For what concerns time of the day we'll consider Race 1 to be held at 11:30 and Race 2 at 14:30.

    We'll use http://www.myweather2.com/

    Example of Real weather forecast translated to Ingame:

    [​IMG]

    Race 1 Weather would be cloudy start moving to light rain

    Race 2 weather would be light rain moving to cloudy


    We'll race with REAL DAMAGES this should make clear enough by itself that contacts should be avoided as much as possible and that careful driving and respect are a MUST for this serie. Tire degradation and fuel usage will too be setted as Real as possible. We drive with Real AIDS! So make sure you can manage yourself around the tracks safely.


    CARS
    All cars are available!

    There will be 4 available of each cars so people signing up should state their preferences.


    Championship, Points and Teams.

    Drivers are encouraged to team up, if possible a veteran player or good tuner with a "newbie" or "average" one so that beinga team they might share their knowledge and help. The drivers in the same team must choose same car and same livery.

    Points for race 1 will go from 16 for first down to 1 for last driver. In race 2 Points will go from 32 to 2 points for 16th classified.

    In case of retires due to excessive damages standings will be completed by the lap the driver quitted.
    1 point will be awarded for pole in each of the 2 sessions.

    Balance of performance
    Sadly SMS have been lazy giving us options so unless something changes there will be no success penalties.

    TIERS?
    I doubt this will be the case, but if there's an excessive amount of interest we might start different tiers.

    How to signup or show interest
    To signup just give

    GTPlanetID/PSNID/Car of choice/driving experiences and in case you already have an idea of whom to team up with and the Team Name feel free to add it as an example:

    azidahaka/karsten_beoulve/Aston Martin Vantage V12 GT3/experienced-slow Team Scuderia Fronzini

    After that just Befriend me on PSN and join me up anytime i'm around for some racing,and testing

    The tracks
    We'll focus on european tracks+ one extra europe round! The list is obviously not final, an i'll listen to suggestions from other drivers that signed up.

    Imola
    Spa
    Nurburgring GP
    Catalunya GP
    Brno
    Zolder
    Silverstone


    Extra european: Dubai GP

    This would make up for a good start for the "Season Zero"

    Driver's connections
    Drivers can obviously connect here, but at race time we'll use a textual chat with all users racing in it (until SMS will give us room chat like in GT6 that is >_> ) Do No Use Mics! They cause all kind of lag and not all drivers will be able to hear you well if they do not have a headset.

    Damn go for it mate! We need to start making test as soon as possible and get ready for some good stuff and season zero! ;) All drivers that are clean and respectful are precious and welcome!

    Let me know whenyou'll be back i'll be testing around all the free time i have!

    Since when you are slow now? >_>

    CAn't tell what car you would click with mate... Z4 and Aston are predictable, Audi is very nimble, sls is fast buf feels like a boat :p If you want to Team Up go Aston lol :D

    I don't agree with not using TC & SC. They use it in real life with these cars. It's a lot harder to drive without it for the people who use a controller. I, like a lot of others, can't afford a new wheel for the PS4 and there is no support for the G27 wheel I currently own. I only hope you'll consider using the driving aids. :cheers:

    Some of yesterday's fun

    And at video's end how NOT to do things :D Jokes aside happens when one driver doesn't not know well the track. Good 3 drivers battle in it!

    If it is ok for the majority of the drivers we can go using "real life aids" only. It'll certainly make things easier in rain.

    What is the driver's opinion?

    I think that was me in the Nvidia Z4, it's the livery/car I always use anyway.

    I like using real life cause I'm on a controller at the moment and like it was said, TCS makes it much easier to keep clean with the controller.

    I'm not sure who it was, I know I got my braking zone wrong on one lap and caused a bit of an accident at the same chicane though.

    I would but I'm not going to be home until about half 10 tonight so might not have time.
