    This will be a 1 stage rally at Circuito de la Sierra that may turn into a series. There is a lack of rally series in GT6, so I figured I'd make one. Everything is subject to change at this point.

    The race will be 2 laps long to simulate a longer rally stage.

    Cars and specs:

    General:
    Oil change: Allowed
    I
    mprove body rigidity: Allowed
    Sports Soft Tires

    Carbon driveshaft and LSD can be added if the car doesn't have them already.

    Room Settings:

    Grip reduction on track edge: Real
    Damage: Heavy
    Tire wear and fuel consumption: Fast
    Weather: 100%
    Weather Changeability: Fixed

    Only allowed assist: ABS

    Race:

    This will be set up like a single rally stage, thought it will be 2 laps long.
    Stay in your grid spot unless you're #1, in which case line up at the start line and go when it's your time. 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.
    Standing start staggered by 20-30 sec each, depending on the size of the grid, which will be subtracted from the overall time at the end. Whoever has the fastest time wins.
    False starts will be penalized by a 10 sec penalty like they are in WRC.

    Date:

    TBD at the moment, expect it on a Saturday in mid January at the latest, around Christmas at the earliest depending on how fast signups are.

    Registration:

    GTP name:
    PSN name:
    Car:

    Signups:

    Two people can sign up per car.

    I'm expecting to get my PS3 fixed by Christmas.

    So, if my PS3 is fixed, then count me for Citroen C4. For now, please put me as a reserve.

    Another thing: The WRC cars come RH tires, but are you sure that the WRC cars use SS tyres in real life?

    I like the way SS tires feel on these cars more. That's the only reason why I'm using them.
    I am unsure if rally cars use slicks or not in real life, but I don't think they do because they have to account for the fact that the weather can change and having to drive in rain on slicks is too dangerous or something like that.

    Yes, I think that slicks are very dangerous... Group B cars used Slick Tyres, but I believe that Group A and WRC cars use SH to SS tires.

    Just keep in mind that these aren't necessarily WRC spec cars. They're "Sierra spec," 100~hp more than regular rally cars because Sierra is quite high speed.

    I'll sign you guys up in a bit, on my phone at the moment.

    Haven't done a lot on GT6 lately, so I guess I should give this a try.

    There is a chance that I might not be able to make it. I'll have that confirmed when you decide on a date.

    Hi Ettic, if this is going to be run at a time compatible with normal(me?) life at this side of the pond I'd love to take part. Using the 08 Subaru if possible.

    However, 27th Dec could be a problem due to likelihood of family visiting.

    Cheers, Zo.

    Ooops, sorry..... Zolon32/Zolon32/Subaru WRC 08.

    I'm thinking about the 27th, but a lot of people might be out on vacation then. My big problem is that I'm going to AGDQ (speed running marathon) from like Jan 3-10 or 11 so I won't be able to host it then.

    I'm thinking about 2:00 PM EST, but I could go earlier.
    If not the 27th, Jan 3rd might work, otherwise it'll be Jan 17th.

    Signed everyone up, let me know if I made any mistakes. :lol:

    Would Dec 13th work for everyone? Signups have been much faster than I thought they would be, so I'd be fine with the current grid for a race.

    Race start specifics added to OP: Stay in your grid spot unless you're #1, in which case line up at the start line and go when it's your time. 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.
    I'll post the grid and start times the day before the race.

    Was thinking 19:00 GMT, but I can go earlier if you want. 17:00 GMT would probably work better.

    I think I'll update it to 19:00 GMT on Dec 13th then, unless anyone has conflicts that day. :tup:

    I'm changing it to fixed, dry weather as well since this is kind of a test race. The ridiculous stuff will come if I turn this into a series. :mischievous:

    Just to make sure but does this start with 100% surface water?

    No. 100% weather for atmospheric effect, 0% surface water, fixed dry conditions.

    Are you sure this works Ettick? I know you can fix the weather, but I thought the surface water changed gradually depending on the rain/sun. ie, if it's throwing it down the road will get steadily more wet until it's at 100%, and there's nothing you can do to stop it, so I thought.......... :guilty:

    Cheers, Zo.
