    Although I have had a club here at GTP before (1 & 2), this will be my first proper championship.
    An unusual one perhaps but I'm looking forward to it because it covers just about all categories of racing.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The championship will consist of eight Tuesday's starting next week and each event will be a new category where all drivers race the same type of Toyota.

    The thing that impresses me about Toyota is their willingness to explore everything available out there
    in the motorsport world. Yes, their Formula 1 venture didn't quite go as planned but at least they gave it a good shot before they withdrew. Like I mentioned above I can't think of any other competitor that has participated in so many major categories like Toyota has done.

    [​IMG]


    The following eight cars will be used one time only in the eight scheduled events (see below).
    The PP displayed is the stock total plus an oil change and the tyres are what SNAIL recommends
    for that specific PP number.

    *One last thing. Out of the eight races only your seven best results count for the championship.
    This so that if you should miss one race for whatever reason you won't lose contention for the title
    or lose a place in the rankings.

    But please only sign up if you think you will be able to participate in all eight races.

    Bye for now.. :)

    Hey Patrick, thank you.
    So do you want to sign up for a spot?



    As each event approaches race day I will post more detailed information about that particular evening. :)

    Exciting guys. The grid is growing.

    I had a conversation with Dusty earlier tonight and he would have joined if he wasn't about to leave for Colorado U.S.A.
    He's going skiing there and won't be back for awhile.
    You all know how fast Dusty is on the track, now imagine him down the slopes. :lol:
    He'll tear that snow right up.

    I like to join too. I don't know how many races I'll make it, but I'll try as many as possible due my other races. Is it ok?

    Sure it's ok, jammy. If you should know a couple of days before a race that you can't make it you can just let us know and
    I can write you up as a reserve driver instead.

    As much as I'd love to join this Jocke, I don't know how many races I'll be able to come for. I'd be a reserve driver, but at max I'll be able to come for two races.

    EDIT: I can see a burning moon and an earth near the airplane, are we racing on some other planet?:)

    Yes Aaroh, the Toyota planet. :)
    Or maybe GT planet.

    I'd love it if you were a reserve with chances of joining in if the grid isn't full.

    Theoretically I could manage the whole races 'cause day and time are always OK for me... :D
    Except of course the unpredictable factors... :boggled:

    Is there a particular reason why we have to use the Gazoo Racing 86 and can't use the Base Model? I always thought they had the exact same specs and the Base Model can be painted and use any racing number?

    Anyways I am in... #27 where possible.
    Toyota Yay!!!

    Same here Patrick. We never know what life throws at us, but I'm hoping these eight weeks will run smoothly and that I don't have to cancel anything.
    It should be all good.

    You make a good point, gk. And in fact I had planned on using the base model originally. If you scroll up you'll notice that I have marked it with a big white X.
    I was pondering at first to use it for a non-points "sprint / warm-up race" before the main races, but I quickly discarded that idea for I want to keep this as simple
    as possible because less is more sometimes, and going with just the one race per Tuesday makes more sense to me.

    You are absolutely right in that they share the exact same specs and it never occurred to me that it can be used for the N24h race alongside the Gazoo.
    Therefore, yes, both cars will be allowed for that race. :tup:
    And while on the subject of the inaugural race at the Nordschleife I will put up more information regarding that shortly.

    I will still use the Gazoo though. :)
    You've made me happy, gk.
    Looking forward to going side by side with you.



    *It occurred to me that the track information for the eight races are currently only available in the community and not in the thread
    here at GTPlanet.

    I will sort that out later on today and add all the relevant information here below as well.

    Ah, the Toyota project. :)
    And you did change the poster.

    Great idea Jocke.

    I'd love to make it for every race because they are all interesting*. But since I've not been on the PS3 for a few weeks now#, that's probably doubtful.
    A reserve driver listing for me please, if available of course. Number 88

    Can I just ask, are they all un-tuned events? Just the oil change? Since that does make it easier to participate (spaces permitting) when and where I can.

    I've got most of the cars already. I need to spend a few credits, so I'll get the rest of them just in case.
    Toyota 7 - a bit of a handful but great fun. :D (You might want to consider traction control on for this!)


    * Yes, even the NASCAR. ;)
    # Sorry Patrick for not answering you FR yet! And to Aaroh for not Beetling it yet.

    I'll be there for all the races I can be there for. I think the GTOR supermini touring series (there's still a few spots on the grid! Fit vs MiTo vs Mini vs Clio) I signed up for and is starting sometime soon which was supposed to be on tuesdays is going to move to some other day. So I should be able to make most Tuesdays again.

    Especially looking forward to NASCAR (hopefully it's not on an oval) and the rally car (also hopefully it's not on dirt...why can't there be a proper WIDE paved/dirt rallycross-style track in GT6?)

    I'd love for you to be there every race too, Paul, but in any case what this series is lacking is a good Morale Officer.
    You have been one in the past for the Z8's so that position is yours here as well if you want it. The pay isn't very good but the benefits are.
    Like an office the size of half a football field at Tokyo HQ for instance. Sound swell?
    That's correct. Tuning will be prohibited but everything that can slip through that is allowed (brakes, oil etc).
    I know from reading Sick's thread that some found this car tricky, but I tried it untuned with these tyres at Monza earlier and it felt
    pretty good to me. It felt responsive and at no point out of control. I will need to test it some more though.


    Great guys. Toyota Motorsports is happy to have you on board.

    The Mexican Magician in a Gazoo.

    Hi Manny. :)
    I haven't forgotten about your heroics at the Nordschleife before.
    If you could finish Top 2 in a Mini with 80kg ballast (while the others had no ballast) what will you be able to do in a Toyota? :eek:
    Glad you want to race.

    Patrick, it is the same as when you log in to race online on the PS3. Same username and same password.
    If you click on one of the eight links and log in you will be redirected to the race info, looking like this;

    patrick info.jpg

    This is the same information as the one found in the community. If you click 'regulations' you will find all lobby settings.
