- Fareham, UK
Welcome to Season 5 of the Sprint Cup Series.
We remain an International Series once again this Season.
As always the races are all on Fridays and the lobby will be open at 19:30 UK time. (Please check current time zone).
Qualifying will begin at 19:45 for all events so you'll need to be in and ready at that point. Therefore the race will start at 19:55. There may be a few minutes delay if needed as the series has drivers from all over the world with different time zones and I know some get up in the very early hours!
Once again I have aimed this series to be for drivers of ALL skill levels and to have a fun and relaxed feel to it. That being said the racing needs to be fair and respectful. New drivers are always welcome to race alongside the series regulars

New for this Season I am slightly tweaking the way in which I determine the driver classing. Along with your GT Sport DR I am also looking at your Speedscore % on Kudosprime.
The reason for this is to get a better grouping of the classes we already had. There where drivers in the Pro class last season who really should of been running the the Silver Class and there where drivers at the back of the Silver class who would of benefited from an AM class.
Once you have submitted your entry I will look up your profile on Kudosprime and determine your class.
Kudosprime Speedscore % = Class
Above 70% = PRO
50%-70% = Silver
Below 50% = AM
Silver and AM Classes:
Points will be awarded as normal for the overall finishing position but seperate points will be also awarded for the Silver and AM standings.
The points will be 25, 18, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1.
Pole Position in the Silver and AM Classes will be awarded 1 point.
If your Speedscore % changes during the Season you will remain in the Class you started the season in
