    ITC-B - ITCC's Entry Level Series

    [​IMG]
    Have you always dreamed of racing touring cars? Looking for an easy first-step into the world of GTPlanet RACEing? Welcome to International Touring Car B - RACE's entry level series.

    B-Spec Touring Cars are:

    ..."smaller cars with small, efficient, naturally aspirated motors. Modifications are limited to manufacturer specified performance spring and shocks to keep overall cost down. The only modifications allowed are pre-approved suspension kits, other than that no mods of any sort."


    Within Gran Turismo 6, the latest Honda Fit, Abarth 500, MINI Cooper S and Mazda 2/Demio models will be used. For balance of performance reasons, the Abarth 500 and MINI Cooper S are allowed in, but will receive power reductions to limit the effectiveness of their turbocharged engines.


    While we're still testing specifications, the base (starting) specifications for cars are as follow:

    Base Specs:

    Team Structure:


    Circuits:


    Points Scoring System:

    Connection:
    Problem Solving:


    Weekend Schedule:
    Registration:

    Two simple pieces of information so that I can find you...

    GTP Name:
    PSN Name:

    Schedule:

    Race weekends:
    R.W. 6: Aug. 31st
    R.W. 7: Sept. 7th
    R.W. 8: Sept. 14th

    Special Rules

    Bump drafting may only be performed between two or more consenting drivers. Don't push someone who doesn't want to be pushed.

    I'd like to add, that draft will be set to "weak", to assist slightly in passing and keeping pace.

    These cars are very close.

    Day 1 testing results:

    Trial Mountain lap times

    Abarth 500 '09 - 1:42.675
    Mazda Demio Sport '10 - 1:42.729
    MINI Cooper S '11 - 1:42.735
    Honda Fit R.S. '10 - 1:43.037***

    ***revision under way***


    After oil changes and revision:

    Mazda: 1:41.714
    Honda: 1:41.752
    Abarth: 1:41.876
    MINI: 1:42.050


    Driver error is the likely cause. The Mazda got more laps... MINI got one lap.

    Edit: OP updated with specs. Registration opens soon.

    Like the idea.

    Nothing provides closer racing than underpowered cars. :tup:

    Maybe I'm being blind but I don't see mention of the day this would take place?

    Yup being blind. :dunce:

    So here's a couple of better questions:

    Fuel/tyre wear, what's it set to?

    How long are the races?

    Sounds like an interesting series. I'm always up for new challenges but I don't want to spread myself out too far by entering too many leagues. This upcoming series seems like a good toe-dipping exercise for me.

    The races wil probably be approximately 15 minutes long. Fuel and tire wear will be set to normal.
    Hey man, cool. :) we've almost already filled the Pro grid, should you also decide to join - half way in a day.

    All told, this series would only take about an hour and 20 minutes each week.

    Excellent. I'll keep an eye out until registration opens. I'll probably enter in the Amateur class coming from the <-BTCC-> series.

    I'll open it now, actually. The only thing I don't want, is people registering for the wrong car or team. So, I'm only asking for:

    GTP Name:
    PSN Name:

    :)

    But that's dependent on the time being 12pm EST/5pm BST. Had a quick whizz around Trial Mountain in the Fit and it was good fun. :tup:

    Oh wait you signed me up already :tup:

    I'm giving GT6 a rest for a week or so, been playing it way too much recently and my leg hurts, so I probably won't make it to the test on Sunday.

    You know my PSN. You have me added.

    But if I get a new PS3, I'll try to participate the most championships as possible. I'm not sure yet.

    PS: Can we just use more than 1 car? Or "uno coche"?

    I'll pop along for testing on Sunday. I'll look into building a Fit or Abarth.

    @Harsk100 one car. I'm not forcing people to form teams, yet, but that day will come.


    @AudiMan2011 excellent! :)


    @Downhill Dino, it's going to be whichever timeslot leads the polls tomorrow... For Sunday testing. My guess is 5 PM UK.

    So, I'm collecting interest for a slight 're-brand' for this: Cooper Cup.


    Opinions? If there is significant interest, it would be a no-tuning one-make with just MINI Cooper S '11...


    So, I would like to gather opinions.

    There isn't One Makes in Pirelli World Challenge. I'll send you a PM.

    There would be a 're-brand', meaning that it would not be run as a Pirelli World Challenge replica series, but instead, a fantasy (ish) Cooper Cup

    ITCC is International Touring Car Championship, right? Or it is a club that you have created?
