    RALLY 90's is a rally series that intends to emulate nostalgic era of early 90's rallying. The goal of this series is to create as authentic of a rallying experience as possible in GT6.

    Each round will try to simulate a single day of a WRC event. The total combined length of all the stages in one round will be over 100km.

    Add Ettick_ on PSN to race. I could run the race through my Rally club if that makes things easier.

    Race starts:


    Stay in your grid spot unless you're #1, in which case line up at the start line and go at 30 sec. Press start to ghost the car in case someone completes a lap before the entire field starts. People behind will advance to the start line in order and start when it's their time, sort of like the rally event in GT5. If you see another car coming behind, let them by and say "pass" in chat. If your start was delayed by their passing, go ten seconds later or more if you feel like you need extra time.

    The start will be staggered by a varied amount of time (160 sec/(# of people in the grid)) per person, though if there's less than 6 people on grid it'll just be rounded out to 20 sec. The time before the start will be subtracted at the end of each stage. Whoever has the fastest combined time throughout all stages wins the round.
    False starts will be penalized by a 10 sec penalty like they are in WRC.

    Races after the first will start with a reverse grid order (fastest last) to make sure everyone finishes within the end timer.

    Lobby settings:

    Grip reduction on track edge: Real
    Damage: Heavy
    Tire wear and fuel consumption: Fast

    No assists will be allowed. I may consider allowing ABS if there is enough demand, but I would like to keep it off for authenticity's sake.



    Other rules:

    Changing setups after the first race has started is illegal. That means don't open the settings menu. This is to simulate going straight to the next stage, as opposed to going to a service park between each stage.
    If a faster car is withing passing distance of another, the slower car must give way within 4 corners. This would preferably happen on a straight. You do not need to say "pass" in chat if this happens.
    In case of mass disconnect, the stage will be restarted. If one person disconnects before the stage is 25% over, the stage will be restarted. If a single person disconnects from more than 3 stages in one round, they will not be restarted for again. I'm sorry, but I don't want to have massive delays.

    I wanted to incorporate random weather without making it unfair to people who start earlier or later in the race. So I figured what I'd do is make the weather at the start of the stage be chosen by a random number generator and be fixed for the rest of it. This will make the races much more interesting, making choosing what setup to use even more difficult.

    Light rain - 25% Surface Water
    Medium rain - 50% Surface Water
    Heavy rain - 100% Surface Water

    The time isn't necessarily set in stone, but the day is.

    Hey Ettick! Sorry I was unable to attend today :( I forgot about the event and was busy. I was working on my race car.

    If I was around I would've attended. And I think I will sign up for this as well!

    I'll take the Subaru Touring Wagon #39 Blue Chrome car/rims and orange Wing if I need that as well

    I should be able to make it this Sunday if we race or test :tup:


    Here's some pictures on the race car I'm making. bought the chassis then added all the stuff on too it. Almost done! Just have to add skirting to other side and add the bars and a few bolts to put on and she will be ready to paint and put stickers on

    *bump*

    It seems as if there isn't much interest in this series. I'd still like to run a round for testing purposes though.

    I am cancelling this series due to low participation. Thanks for signing up @Ph1sher, but I don't think this would work well with just two people.

    Lol yeah and I apologize for never making any of the events. Was kind of hoping this could become a cool thing for everyone but I'm sure we could work something out for everyone in the future

    Hi Ettick, this looks really good!

    I'd sign up but it seems like it no longer will take place... I'd be interested if you were hosting another rally series though, the format seems very good.

    Thanks, I put a lot of effort into it.
    There was just not enough interest in the series when I made it, so I ended up cancelling it.

    I don't play GT6 anymore, so I won't be making another GT6 series. :lol:
