    THE HISTORIC AND MODERN
    TUNEDRACINGASSETT0CORSA
    With custom lobbies now available l would like to organise and host a minimal tuned racing series with the aim of clean, close and fair racing. Each series would be a championship so points would be available but structured in keeping the standings as close as possible, extra points would be available for pole position in qualification and for the fastest lap in the races. The race series will be events with a predetermined car taking place on a different track each week involving 3 races.
    • 19:00: 15 minutes qualification to decide 1st race grid position.​
    • 19:15: 1st race approx 25 minutes followed by establishing the 2nd race reverse grid, dictated by 1st race results.​
    • 19:55: 2nd race approx 25 minutes followed by establishing the 3rd race reverse grid, dictated by 2nd race results.​
    • 20:35: 3rd race approx 25 minutes.​
    T-R-A-C members must sign up to GTPlanet and have a YouTube account linked to their PS4, a headset is preferred to aid communication although while racing chat to be kept to a minimum. ShareFactory video record time will need to be set to 60 minutes, this can be achieved via PS4 Settings, Sharing and Broadcasts and Length of Video Clip, Link with Other Services will provide access to your YouTube account. The races being 25 minutes means there will be plenty of time to push for some points, to encourage clean fair racing there will be PENALTY deductions for abusing track limits, causing collisions, the loss of race positions and not giving the gained position back. Fastest laps, racing incidents and complaints will need to be backed up by a ShareFactory video clip.

    What if "fixed tune setup" option got enabled in a couple of weeks, what will you do with this series?! Will it continue or stop?
    In my opinion, it would have made much more sense to run FACTOR series even with tuning allowed, and whenever the "fixed tune setup" option is here, you can switch it ON and everyone will be running in the same conditions!
    So it's equal grounds for everyone at any given time, whether with tunes or without!

    Well you say a couple of weeks, who knows? The cars that will be used for T-R-A-C have minimal tuning options so drivers who don't/can't tune will still be competitive. most of the cars already selected for F-A-C-T-O-R unfortunately have a lot more tuning required and as I have already done a lot of work with no tuning involved, IMO I think it best to just put that on hold and run T-R-A-C for a couple of weeks , well 1 season of 7 races and then if fixed setup has been enabled in between then great, can then go back to F-A-C-T-O-R for the next series.

    well that was frustrating... First race I prepared a nice strategy pitting late so didnt have to put alot of fuel in. Thinking there still was an obligatory pitstop during the race. I was confused because there is still a mention of 'pitting procedure' amongst the rules. Having studied the rules of the first series I thought pitting was still there. So although having had an awesome race with an awesome lap (1'10'3xx) I ended only third. No worries I thought let's see where we can go for race 2. But during race 2 I got disconnected. Still holding on and will try to rejoin for race 3.

    o ye. great race 3. starting dead last managed to move quickly through the pack. did a 2'10'145 and was actually on a lap to go under 2'10 but i screwed the last corner... thanks Carlos for all the great work and time you put into it. Not easy with such a 3 wheeled vehicle the lobbies are. Highly appreciated.
