    Welcome to TIRE: The International Racing Entity

    We are proud to announce our first championship for XBOX ONE and Forza Motorsport 6,
    The World Sportscar Championship!

    This will be a 7 round championship featuring 3 classes of cars battling on the same track

Numbers eligible: 1-24 (1 is reserved for the champion and will not be used in season 1). 6 Slots Available

    Le Mans Prototype 2- The lower of the two prototype classes features close battles and wheel to wheel action proving that there is never a dull moment. Class uses BLUE number and classes panels. Numbers eligible: 25-49. 8 Slots Available

    Grand Touring- This is a mixture of GTE and GT3 machines using TIRE's Balance of Performance to create what should be some of the closest and most diverse GT racing on GTPlanet. Class uses GREEN number and Class Panels. Numbers eligible: 50-99. 10 Slots Available

    (see rulebook for technical regulations)

    Note there can be no more than 3 of the same car in the LMP1 and GT Classes

    Each driver must create a livery that adheres to the TIRE WSC livery guidelines (see page 5 in the rulebook). The livery must have the TIRE Number and Class panels and that is available in vinyl groups (search BCSAUBURN2010 under "Gamertag"). All Liveries must be approved by TIRE so PM me your livery to get it approved.

    The '12 Audi R18, '14 Rebellion R1, and '14 Mazda Lola can all have a different engine brand in order to create diversity and to allow some more creativity

    -The '12 Audi R18 can be branded as having a Porsche engine becoming a 919 or it can be branded as having a Toyota engine, becoming a TS040

    -The '14 Rebellion R1 can have either a Toyota/TMG engine branding or it can have a AER branded engine

    -The '14 Mazda Lola can have one of the following branded engines: Nissan-NISMO, Honda-HPD, Judd, Mazda

    The following brands can be used to brand your tires
    -Michelin (LMP1, LMP2, and GT)
    -Dunlop (LMP2, and GT)
    -Continental (GT only)
    -Pirelli (GT only)

    See Page 9 in the rulebook

    -Races will take place in a private lobby.

    -Qualifying will be 6 laps on all tracks except Le Mans where it will be 4 laps
    -Two Cars will roll off every 5 Seconds
    -Best "Clean" Lap will get pole as we will use the Best Lap race setting
    -Collisions will be on

    -Races will have one rolling start with pace speed being determined by the stewards and announced before the race
    -All Rounds except Le Mans will be around 45 minutes in length with laps being used instead of time. Le Mans will be around 60 minutes

    I just signed up for TIRE.

    I'll have to wait for time slots before I officially want to participate in this series.

    Also, if there will be DLC Tracks and I lack the DLC. Can I still participate in this series but get a replacement or just not attend the DLC Race?

    Just signed up for Tire and I'll send the friend request later today when im near my XBOX.

    Im still thinking which class I'll be in. LMP1 sounds tempting but GT class is more easier. If there was the Porsche 911 RSR for the GT3 i would pick that class
