    Tested, yes. Legal, maybe.

    And, as for you being interested, @KingSakery!!! :D Der König ist wieder zurück gekommen! :D welcome back!

    Edit: Late summer means "Später im Sommer" or otherwise, sometime this summer.

    I meant the "exact date" respectively the estimated starting time :D
    (Wings are great opticwise but they don´t give any higher downforce figures, atleast the sizes I tested)

    Yes, I will use ITCC 4 wing size regulations to govern the size of the wings.


    Start date could be May or June by now... The "Late summer" could be bumped forward given our progress with testing... And it's about to go crazy fast soon. ;)

    ITCC 5 announcement: Week 2 cars + Team structure

    International Touring Car Championship organizers have announced that several French auto manufacturers are interested in fielding Factory teams. Citroën, Renault, and Peugeot have all announced their ambitions, and the cars that they will be entering.


    The Peugeot RCZ - which was teased with disguised photos from Nürburgring GP/D testing - will be the first of French manufacturer's cars. This rather odd car was designed in 2009, and released in 2010. Its FF layout, and low center-of-gravity make this carbon-fiber two door coupé an excellent choice for the French marque.


    The next car is the Renault Clio R.S., which will also be a factory car. This peppy, small and agile two-door hatchback surprises most who first see it. Its handling is reminiscent of the hot hatches that France does best - responsive and lively. An FF platform with a turbocharged 4 cylinder engine make its platform very typical in ITCC, but not its small wheelbase, which makes it capable of carving slower corners very well.


    Citroën was the final manufacturer to announce their ITCC 5 intentions - The C4 Coupé 2.0 VTS will be Citroën's entry into the ITCC's fifth season. Although the car looks rather heavy, looks are deceiving in this case. It's actually a lightweight car, very similar to the Renault - an FF, two door hatchback with a turbocharged 4 cylinder engine.





    ITCC organizers also revealed the system for how its drivers will be sorted in season 5: The organizers will be privately contacting drivers who express interest in joining with the manufacturers that they can select. Drivers with previous experience in ITCC are welcome to take "first pick" at Factory cars, while those without previous ITCC experience will be given first pick at independent cars.


    If there are slots which are not filled when all factory drivers have announced their choice, the factory spots will be up-for-grabs with "Manufacturer test sessions." Whoever sets the fastest time with a car will be given the empty factory seat.


    Once all Factory cars are filled, then - and only then - will the Independent's slots be confirmed. The deadline will be May 17th - any driver who misses the deadline will be put into an Independent team without the chance for a factory seat.
    Factory drivers will be announced on May 17th, when everything is finalized.


    The pre-season will begin in May, when the announcements have been made.


    ITCC 5 will use a new points scoring system, meaning that some drivers will not score points. Championships will still be given to the highest scoring Independent's and Factory drivers, Manufacturers, and teams. Championships will also be contested by "Privateers" this season, who will be scored on their own. Privateers are drivers with only one car - not on a team. Because these drivers don't have teammates to score points with, they will only be able to compete against each other, and overall for the Drivers' championships. Privateers can only be independents, because factory slots MUST be filled.​

    Just a friendly reminder to everyone - registration for ITCC 5 will open on Sunday. :D


    Check the OP for full information, but also note that - since the car list isn't even complete yet - you can't even ask for which car you want.. Instead, you can put your name on the registrant's list, and you'll be contacted by the manufacturers.

    I seem to remember Mel saying at one point that ToCA and ITCC wouldn't conflict anymore.

    Yeah basically ITCC4 (current series) ends just as ToCA 11 is starting, then I think it is planned that ITCC5 starts as ToCA ends. But there is talk of pushing the start date forward so not to sure anymore.

    ITCC4's got the Run-off's as well, so that's sure to push the starting date of ITCC5 back a bit.

    If I can race on ITCC, then I'm planning to stay on the team with ITCC-4 champion, GTP_Caine.

    Guys, don't worry about Harsk. If something unexpected happens, I talk to him.



    @LancerEvo7, :tup:

    @jammy21, @Roflwaffle, good to have your interest, guys. ITCC will not clash with ToCA. I think I'd rather make it easier for ToCA guys to join us, too.

    But dont worry if you prove your capable of driving an ITCC© specced touring car in a safe manner and show the required speed needed to keep up with GTP's most talented drivers then your fee will be £0.00. Thankyou for your interest and please PM an ITCC© steward for furthur details on how to obtain your super licence.
