Stock Liveries are Prohibited
Liveries must not break GT7/Sony terms of service.
Racing numbers must be clearly visible on both sides of the car.
TPC Number boards created by @Adam Barber if you wish to use them:

  • Everyone participating agrees to take part honestly and to self police themselves on the rules below
  • Heavy damage is on, clean racing is a must for everyone and please if a mistake is made, give the position or time gained back.
  • Lapped cars are not responsible for letting by faster cars. Please hold the racing line and allow faster cars to make a safe, clean pass.
  • When exiting pit lane, please do not cross the white line.
  • Please obey yellow flags, drive with added caution and no overtaking allowed.
  • Please keep 2 wheels on circuit at all times. Circuit Curbing is included as the track surface.
  • In the unlikely event you feel that a driver has not been driving honestly. After the race you may report that driver privately to myself for consistently breaking any of the above rules. The Penalty, if required, will be a drive through (stop & go) time penalty added to the race finish result.
Procedure to be confirmed.
The Race will start using the In Game Rolling Start.
1 warm up lap will be completed from this point.
The lead car will set the pace at approximately 120kph/75mph.
Into the final sector cars will line up in pairs behind the leader.
The lead car can start the race at any point between the final corner and the start/finish line.
Procedure to be confirmed.
In the event of heavy damage, drivers will be able to request a “safety car” using in game text chat. From this moment no overtaking is allowed and the lead car will slow down to approximately 120kph/75mph and drivers will que behind in order. This may take some time depending on how the race is progressing but the lead car will complete the lap it is on and then 1 more full lap only at those Safety Car speeds. Drivers must stay behind the car ahead, the race will restart in single file. The leader will then be able to restart the race upon completing the Safety Car lap and the race will continue as normal.
Please Note:
  • Type “Safety Car” into the in game chat to start the safety car procedure.
  • If someone makes an error during the Safety Car (ie, they don't follow the procedure), please complete the procedure as required. Hopefully they will realise their mistake and correct it or I will penalise the error post race as necessary.
  • Lapped cars may unlap themselves during the Safety Car, please do this cautiously and at a reduced pace.
  • Damaged cars are not allowed to skip ahead to pit for damage, you must maintain your position in the queue until you can access the pit entrance.
  • You may pit during the safety car procedure. If you do not pit and take the lead position, you are now acting as the safety car as described above.
  • Heavy vehicle damage is classified as suspension and engine damage. Bumper/bodywork damage does not require a safety car. Calling a Safety Car when it is not required will invoke a post race penalty.
  • If Heavy vehicle damage occurs during the safety car, you may call another safety car. The procedure will effectively restart and another full lap at the reduced pace will be required.

You can commit to as many or as few events as you like. From Event 2 onwards priority will be given based on participation of previous events.

Event Results & Championship Standings



IMG_7695.jpeg

IMG_7696.jpeg

Pole Position: MaxAttack - Mercedes AMG
Driver of the day: Sunshineonleith - Audi R8 - A great drive by Sunshine, who was one of the drivers caught out on mediums during the mid race rain shower but kept their composure to fight back up to 3rd place.
Incidents Report: DarkCobra reported himself for a collision with Darksidenet. I have taken no action and declared this a racing incident. Both drivers leave each other room at turn 1 where Darksidenet touches the wet outside curb. This coupled with poor net code means the drivers have a more awkward collision than they would have had normally.
IMG_7843.jpeg

IMG_7844.jpeg

Pole Position: Stitch_17
Driver of the day: GOTMAXPOWER - Porsche 911 - I don't think anyone was beating GMP this race. They were consistently fighting for the lead and showed great race craft throughout the race.
Incidents Report: 1. Due to a couple last minute drop outs I didn't realise we had 3 Porsches on the grid. Only the top 2 Porsches have been scored for the constructors championship.
2. Stitch_17 - lap 26 - calling incorrect safety car - Driver through (stop and go) penalty - 18s added to the finishing results.
3. MaxAttack - lap 26 - collision with Fudsy - Racing Incident - There were a large group of cars battling into the chase this lap causing them to be overly slow. Fudsy took appropriate action and braked early, however Max wasn't able to see the traffic ahead being so slow and crashed into the back of Fudsy causing a knock on effect. Due to the speed on approach and lack of reaction time I have decided a warning is appropriate. Max was not late to slow down nor was he attempting an ambitious overtake, just an unfortunate turn of events at the fastest part of the circuit. Ideally Max would’ve taken avoiding action but this is easy to say in hindsight.
IMG_7952.jpeg

IMG_7953.jpeg

Pole Position: n/a
Driver of the day: The359 - A great come back drive from The359 who crashed early on but fought back to take a well earned win against a fuel saving GOTMAXPOWER.
Incident Report: 1. TPC_ABarber95 reported himself for a collision with DarkSideNet. I have taken no action and declared this a racing incident. Both drivers are battling hard into turn 1 where Abarber makes a move on the inside. He leaves room to the outside and has the move completed early but is slow on the apex trying to maintain a line for turn 2. DarkSideNet comes in with more apex speed and collides with ABarbers’ rear quarter.

IMG_8212.jpeg

Pole Position : GOTMAXPOWER
Driver of the day: GOTMAXPOWER - A clean sweep for GMP even with the tricky conditions.
Incident Report: 1. Drex125 reported himself for a collision with TPC_ABarber95 on the final lap. Drex has been deemed to be at fault and given a 1 position penalty. Coming into the final corners of the race, Drex loses control under braking and leaves the circuit. Upon rejoining ABarber is trying to take advantage of the mistake made by Drex to gain a position but unfortunately Drex collides with ABarber causing him to crash and effectively lose the position they would have gained.
IMG_8298.jpeg

IMG_8297.jpeg

Pole Position: SpinerKopin
Driver of the day: Drex125 who narrowly missed out on a podium spot. Notable mentions to Chevy_Heavy drove an incredible race fighting through the field and TPC_Fudsy who had a great result with p8.
Incident Report: TPC_ABarber95 reported himself for an incident with Chevy_Heavy on lap 60. I've put this down as a racing incident with no action taken. Neither driver does anything untoward but both seem to suffer the affects of a really bad net code collision. Sadly Chevy comes off worse due to being on the outside.

This looks amazing, what a well planned event 👏. Unfortunately I have some classes during Saturdays that clash with most of the series.
If I can, I'd like to sign up as reserve for rounds 1 to 3
