    Welcome fellow racers!

    I am organising a GT3 championship starting next month (Sept 27th), running weekly races on a Sunday at 20:00 BST/15:00 EST. There are two races which clash with the F1 on 25th Oct (USA F1 GP) and 01st Nov (Mexico F1 GP) and will start at 21:00 GMT/16:00 EST/17:00 EDT (US Daylight saving starts), in order to start after the race has finished.

    Race Format

    2 Rooms of 16 drivers, 3 if enough people sign up - points system will be re-worked accordingly if this is the case.
    Points will be spread across the 2 rooms (see point scoring below). The series will operate promotions/relegations of last 4 finishers in room 1 going down, first 4 finishers in room 2 moving to room one for the next race. Points for 16th in room 1 and 1st in room 2 will overlap (ie both 21 points)
    NEW: From round 6 onwards, driver promotion/relegations will be 3 drivers, not 4. This will help streamline room performance.

    Races will currently be run in two legs, with each race lasting approximately 30 minutes, with 15 minute qualifying for each race. The promotion/relegation for each round will be calculated from the lowest/highest combined scores for the two races, with lowest 4 scores in room 1 going down for the next race, highest 4 in room 2 going up.

    Initial Room Placement Qualifying [COMPLETED]

    This will be carried out the Sunday 13th the week prior to the start, and will be held in several slots through the day (this can be arranged later).
    Car for qualifying will be the M3 GT around Spa, as this is a track I am sure everyone knows fairly well. Weather set to Clear, time 14:00, aids as per series rules.

    Top 16 will be in room 1 for race 1, 17-32 wil be in room 2. Drivers falling outside these places will be reserve drivers, being called up in respective qualifying order.
    If drivers are unable to make a race and arrange prior to race day, they will be allowed to rejoin the same room the following week, if they are unable to make more than two races in a row, they will move to reserve spot no 1 for the following race.

    For example, driver in 5th in room one is away for one weekend. Drivers below this position (6th onwards) move up to fill the position for that race, with a reserve driver moving into Room2, the top driver in room 2 moves up to room 1 for that race. In this instance, the following race 5 drivers will move to room 2 (4 + an additional driver to account for the previous move up). This will maintain two full rooms of similarly paced drivers at all times. Based on previous series, reserves will get plenty of races, as there is seldom a full grid, due to peoples commitments.


    Scoring

    The championship will consist of 12 races, with best 10 scores counting. If there are two rooms running points will be as below, if there is more interest allowing 3 rooms, points will be adjusted to account for this. Currently points will be 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

    Allowed Cars

    Aston Vantage V12
    Audi LMS Ultra GT3
    BMW Z4 GT3
    McLaren 12C GT3
    Mercedes Benz SLS AMG GT3
    RUF RGT-8 GT3
    BMW M3 GT

    The M3 GT will be used in qualifying for placement, but this can still be used in the championship if desired, but the car would not have ABS. The Bently is not allowed due to its pace and it being DLC some people do not have.


    Driving Aids, Damage & Tyre usage

    Force Real Aids: Yes
    Stability Control: No
    TC: Yes
    ABS: Yes
    Auto Start Engine: Yes
    Flags & Penalties: On
    Damage: Full
    Mechanical Failures: Yes
    Tire Wear: Real Time
    Fuel Usage: Real Time
    Car Reset: Prohibited


    Weather
    Weather will be determined based on an online forecast 5 days before the race day. We will be using http://www.myweather2.com/ forecast. Whatever is forecast 5 days before the event will be the weather (even if the real weather turns out to be different on the day). This will allow practice with race conditions prior to the race.

    The idea behind this series is to have rooms with similar paced drivers in, creating great CLEAN racing at all levels, with everyone having someone to race closely with, whatever room they are in. The main aim is fun at first, clean racing, a little banter and good structured practicing through the week for the next track in the series.

    This is an initial draft and may be subject to minor changes, but the basis is here. I hope to be racing against many of you in September! Feel free to tag people who may be interested and spread the word. Ideally we will have committed drivers who will make the majority of races, racing cleanly with each other around some great world tracks.

    If you are interested please put your name down with PSN ID and send me a friend request, you will be put on the entry list for the series.

    Driving conduct and penalties.
    Drivers are expected to drive fairly and avoid contact. If a position is gained by hitting a driver, you MUST wait unti that driver is back up to speed before attempting a pass.
    Driving behaviour should be in line with any real world series and as similar penalties will be applied for misconduct (subject to stewards review). Persistent penalties will result in exclusion, if advice on driving behaviour is not listened to.

    We want clean racing, it is no fun being invloved in an incident, being the cause or effect!


    Please all drivers make sure you save your replay if you can, it will help in regard to incidents, involvement or not. If people can try their best to get screen shots at the end of each session, that would help greatly in the adminsitration, just in case I miss one!

    This should be interesting, seems a lot of thought has been put into this. May have to be a reserve for now tho. I am most definitely watching this space very closely :-)

    The other option I can think would be moving them to start at 21:00 BST. Due to my being a huge F1 fan I will need to avoid those races, as I have not missed a live race in 20 odd years lol. If people are ok with the later start that would be another option. It would be good to have you on board Karsten.

    Oz you too, hopefully you can get to 100% ;)

    As agreed with @Skaankypuppy , a side-championship will start more or less on the same time but on different day. It's going to be a One-make BMW M3 GT3 serie. If you have interest you can show your interest here:
    https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/ps4-bmw-m3-gt3-one-make-serie.333578/

    The difference is that is one make and that the only aid is Traction control (racing with real aids the M3 do not have ABS) it ay sound scary but it's such a great drive and experience that way i suggest you all to look into!

    Ok sorry I'm in. Sign me on for tron #18 Audi is going demolish everything gone to run all races with no brakes lol. Also I would like to sing up for Stewart's position. I watch a lot of f1 and 90 percent of my depositions are on par with the FIA and Martin Brundel. Being that brundel was the last person to beat senna I think that qualifies me pretty well.
