Relive the Golden Era of F1! It’s time for 60s F1 on GTPlanet! This era will always be remembered for the danger and bravery. Poor safety, unsafe track designs and crazy cars are all unwanted things in general, but it is any man’s dream to drive these cars. So on this special occasion, we’ll have the possibility to feel like the heroes of F1. Director: @GTracer98 Co-Director: @rcb929 Vehicle The car used will be the Light Car Company Rocket – designed by the F1 genius Gordon Murray, it bears great resemblance to an F1 car of the glory years. We’ll all run it at 240HP and 500kg. Power output – 240HP Weight – 500kg Tyres – Comfort Soft Tuning disallowed – Turbocharging, LSD, ECU, nitrous oxide system, multi-clutch system, racing brakes. (anything else is legit) Driving aids allowed – none Open lobby Practice/Race Race for Real Race Quality: High Voice chat: Off Fixed room host: No Max. number of participants: 16 Boost: Off Penalty: Off Tyre wear: Normal Grip reduction: Real Damage: Visible, heavy Slipstream: Real Teams In this series you’ll have a choice of 8 teams, each having two drivers with one extra allowed as reserve. Each team will have their distinct color and as identification. Also, with the recent update, every car will have a racing number using one of the round backgrounds with the old number fonts. Keep in mind that any two team-mates’ numbers need to be related in some way. The teams available are: Scuderia Ferrari – Rosso Corsa Team Lotus – British Racing Green Honda Racing – Championship White Bruce McLaren Motor Racing – McLaren Orange Brabham Racing Organisation – Any black Matra Sports – French Blue All (Anglo) American Racers – Any dark blue Porsche System Engineering - Silver Now there's also privateer teams available, but they have less priority than factory teams, meaning, if a lobby is full and a factory driver can't join, the privateer driver will have to leave the lobby to make space. Team choice won’t affect car performance, unlike in real life. Season The season will consist of both championship and non-championship races. In order to be on the championship standings and fight for the championship victory champagne, you’ll need to register, by filling this form: GTP name: PSN name: Team: Number: Country: Timezone (in GMT): However, anyone, even if not registered, who has read the rules and has an LCC Rocket available can enter the non-championship races. Those not registered will take a place of any team of their liking. Before each non-championship race, a list in this thread will be posted where each participant will write in his name to confirm his place. The season calendar consists of 10 championship races scattered throughout the world. Besides championship races, there are also no championship ones which aren’t raced for championship points. Countries with no represented track in GT6 will host their GP on an alternative track. All tracks with available weather change will make use of it. 1 South African Grand Prix – Apricot Hill (acting as Kyalami) (39 laps) Finished 20th September 2 Monaco Grand Prix – Cote d’Azur (48 laps) Finished 27th September 3 Dutch Grand Prix – Ascari (acting as Zandvoort) (28 laps) Finished 4th October 4 Belgian Grand Prix – Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps (21 laps) Finished 11th October 5 French Grand Prix – Circuit de la Sarthe 2005 (no chicanes) (acting as Rouen-les-Essarts) (10 laps) Finished 18th October 6 German Grand Prix – Nurburgring Nordschleife (7 laps) Finished 16th November 7 Canadian Grand Prix – Deep Forest Raceway (acting as Mosport) (27 laps) Finished 22nd November 8 Italian Grand Prix – Autodromo Nazionale Monza 80’s (26 laps) Finished 29th November 9 United States Grand Prix – Willow Springs GP (Big Willow) (acting as Watkins Glen) (32 laps) 6th December 10 British Grand Prix– Brands Hatch 80’s (34 laps) 13th December Non Championship – Silverstone International, Mount Panorama, Circuito de la Sierra, Circuito de Madrid, High Speed Ring Points will be awarded like this: 1st - 18 points 2nd -15 points 3rd - 12 points 4th - 11 points 5th - 10 points 6th - 9 points 7th - 8 points 8th - 7 points 9th - 6 points 10th - 5 points 11th - 4 points 12th - 3 points 13th - 2 points 14th - 1 point 15th - 0 16th - 0 Race procedure and penalties Each raceday will consist of both qualifying and the race. Qualifying will run in a very simple way: once the room is open, anyone who has joined goes on track whenever they want and start their hotlaps. Once satisfied with their time, they remain on track, waiting for race start. After a determined time period, the race will commence. The 1st lap will be the parade lap, after it, drivers take their places on the grid. At a defined moment, everyone goes for it! Accidents happen and will happen and safety was poor in these days. In case of a crash, the driver in question must type “c” in chat box which will act as the yellow flag. That means that all drivers must be more cautious, it’s advised that they lower speeds as well. SC will not be present though as it also wasn’t back then. Bad race conduct can be punished by place-loss penalties or disqualifications. But you’ll also lose the respect of fellow drivers; remember, F1 was a gentleman sport back then. Penalties can be applied for missing a race without warning, that will usually result in a points penalty.
