    Welcome to Themed Lobby Sundays! Below you will find all of the information describing who we are and what we do. Take a look over everything and be sure to sign up!

    Please take a moment to read the GTPlanet Good Racecraft Guide if you haven't done so already.

    What is it?
    TLS is a weekly lobby that changes themes every week. It gives players a chance to try a little bit of everything that GT Sport has to offer, with themes based on real life racing series from around the globe. We run all races in a single session and crown a champion at the end of the night!

    When is it?
    Sundays* at 8:00pm GMT / 4:00pm EDT / 1:00pm PDT (*every 5-6 weeks we skip a week)

    Where is it?
    Private lobbies based off my friends list to avoid randoms and promote smoother running.

    But why though?
    To allow racers to participate in a mock racing league without having to commit to a full schedule that can span over multiple weeks.

    How does it work?
    Once the lobby opens, everyone will have a set amount of time to get some practice in and set their qualifying time for the first race. After the conclusion of the first race, each additional race will have the grid set by reverse order of the previous race's results. See below for a more detailed schedule. Points will be tallied up at the end of the session and a champion will be crowned. Bonus points will be offered in several fun ways.

    How do I sign up?
    Just post that you are interested, with the following information:
    • PSN Name
    • Car Number
    Also make sure you have room on your friends list for me. :)

    Official Lobby Schedule
    Join / Practice / Qualifying for Race 1 (20 mins)
    Race 1 (10 mins)
    Race 2 (10 mins) Reverse Grid
    Race 3 (10 mins) Reverse Grid

    Did I read that right, unlimited tuning and no bop?
