    ITCC's return for a fifth season will see the average race day's length doubled, points per weekend doubled, and the number of cars will remain the same. 40 spots will be available in the championship, but only 16 per race weekend. The tracks we will use are all short "bull-ring" style tracks, similar in nature to ITCC 1, BTCC @ Brands Hatch Indy and WTCC at Suzuka East. Therefore, we can confirm the following circuits:

    [​IMG]
    Circuits:
    Regular Season:

    1-Brands Hatch Indy (27 laps per race) - July 12th, 2014
    2-Circuito De Madrid Reverse (15 laps per race) - July 19th, 2014
    3-Motegi East (15 laps per race) - August 2nd, 2014
    4-Suzuka East (22 laps per race) - August 9nd, 2014

    Weekend schedule:
    Qualifying:

    Q1 - a.k.a. "fast or bust qualifying," this determines which drivers outside of the top 8 in points are granted positions in the race weekend. It is run 30 minutes before the main lobby opens. Only the people who are not in the Top 8 in points standings are expected to attend this session. Max. 15 drivers allowed. Open track for all drivers. Fastest 8 make it in with the Top 8 of points.


    Q2 - Lobby opens at 2:45 PM GMT-4, fifteen minutes before races start! Sets grid for Race 1 - Fastest 16 on track - including successful Q1 drivers. 15 minutes open-track qualifying. Fastest times start towards the front. Slowest times start towards the back.

    Race 1: 50 km., Racing Medium tires - Qualifying Session #1 determines grid - no ballast


    Ballast set, based on only Race 1 results

    Race 2: 50 km., Racing Medium tires - with ballast - Reverse grid from Race 1

    Ballast reset, based on only Race 2 results

    Race 3: 50 km., Racing Hard tires - with ballast - Reverse grid from Race 2


    Ballast reset

    All races will run standing start. Intermission between rounds begins immediately, and ends as soon as all drivers are ready, as determined by Series Director. Please do not cause an unnecessary delay.

    Success ballast in kg.:

    1: 40
    2: 35
    3: 30
    4: 25
    5: 20
    6: 15
    7: 10
    8: 5

    Success ballast - according to OP - will be run during Races 2, and 3. Ballast is not cumulative. Ballast is determined by the previous race only.

    ... Slightly. I'm pretty sure we've matured enough, as a series, to allow us to try to run races at the circuits we want to. It (Suzuka) was also suggested by @Ettick.

    :lol: The whiskymaser season... Or, the Lancer domination season.

    "failure?" I maintain that it was some of the most fun racing I've ever been in.

    I mean, the first thing you see when you open ITCC 4 thread, is BAM! 3 @ Suzuka East... 11 cars on track, battling. :D

    [​IMG]

    ..The second thing you see is Trial Mountain Circuit... with 11 cars battling, there, too. :D



    There are certain tracks which are just "classic" ITCC tracks:

    -Cape Ring Inside/South
    -Trial Mountain
    -High Speed Ring (you don't know how good it is yet)


    I promise, though, they're awesome.

    The racing toward the back (Were I undoubtably spent most of my time) was dirty, and awful at Suzuka.


    Then put HSR in the regular season too

    I might do that.


    Also, notice how none of the dirty drivers at the back are still around... :) They've gone and joined ToCA or something. :lol: They certainly aren't bothering us. :sly:

    Well, I'm still here, but the only difference is I hang around the top 5 now! :)

    :lol: That's soooo last season. :sly:


    However, we're moving towards having more Premium cars (cars with interiors,) fewer AWDs, and cars which are more modern, due to a number of distinct advantages.

    You have nightmares?

    Overreactions and anger cause me to have nightmares about everything.

    Just kidding lol. But he drifted into me during a race... A lot. Plus he was given an exclusive car, which is wrong.

    He was also the worst best friend I could ever have had. He will not be returning. Your nightmares can end, dude.

    I might only put up a start time. Things will go efficiently and smoothly, but not perfectly. You guys are responsible, too, for ensuring that you're ready for the starts of the races. If you're not, there will be hiccups.

    The Team of Stewards will begin planning car specs for Season 5 soon. If you want insider information, sign up! The ToS is accepting entries. Information is available in ITCC 4 thread's OP.

    The problem with Suzuka East is that unless someone goes wide or makes a mistake then the only place you can really overtake is t1 by slipstreaming down the s/f straight.
    The 2 problems with that are:
    1) The straight isn't really that long so you need to get a really strong run to even attempt the pass
    2) You need a compliant driver (we have loads of those currently:rolleyes:), the car in front can easily brake late and run wide into the corner OR just force you onto the outside line in which case the overtake becomes extremely difficult unless you are very skilful on the brakes. If you aren't extremely careful with your own braking up the inside you will just slam into the car going on the outside and push him off track - resulting in a very angry driver and many accusation's of dive-bombing.

    Having said that personally I do like Suzuka, the season 3 races were good but a little frustrating when you are going quickly behind a massive pack of cars and are just physically unable to pass. Memories of me racing Sakary spring to mind if you want a perfect example - spent 10 laps trying to pass then when I finally did the next car slowed me down and he just cruised back in front on the next lap with his extra horses.

    With regards to the 'bull-ring' style calendar: to me it sounds like either a large quantity of racing laps with little action (Suzuka example) or just a massive pack of cars trading paint samples and it all ending in a massive pile up due to lack of patience.

    ^ I agree totally, :boggled: i just find these small tight tracks frustrating with these cars. Lets have the proper suzuka and FUJI on the calender.

    The tracks aren't very tight at all, :lol: I find that they're mostly high-speed tracks. Autumn Ring Mini is the only low-speed track on the calendar, and it is a seriously fun track for trying to pass on. The number of switch-back type corners means that there's a good likelihood of side-by-side racing, and the low-speeds means that it's easy to manage your own racing line.

    We could have some races at GT Arena if you want to be frustrated with your transaxle, but..
    I'm perfectly happy with the current schedule. :)


    Team of Stewards is getting ready for a big announcement next month. Testing will begin tonight, to prepare for the announcement. The announcement will be an ITCC-first, but it's something we've long needed.

    I will more than likely be steward only here. I'm tired of the GT6 server issues, so I may be hanging up the GT6 gloves very soon
