    Information:
    The Virtual Drift Circuit Championship consists of 7 scheduled events. Drivers compete in a single elimination Top 8 or Top 16 bracket depending on the amount of registered participants. Drivers individually compete head-to-head against other competitors in single elimination runs on the designated course. Competitors progress through a competition bracket and are awarded points towards the season championship. Head to head Runs are judged and scored based on a number of pre-determined criteria where the higher scoring entrant moves on to the next level of the bracket. Points are awarded based on finishing order and cumulative season points will determine the championship order.

    Driver Eligibility:
    Must be registered to compete in championship.

    Judges:
    3 Pre-Selected Judges

    Race Operation:
    There will be an hour pre-event practicing. You will be given a 5 minute warning when practice is over to exit the track, failing to do so within the 5 minutes will result in a DNF from the event. You are all expected to be there by comp begins, If you are late (before you run, which could be first) you will get a DNF and your opponent (if there) will move on the next stage. Tire wear will be on, this means if you are up for a OMT you will be allowed to exit track (back to pits) and get back on track to reset your tires. IRL they get 5 minutes for new tires so you will get 15 seconds Then warm them up and get back to the line.

    Judging:
    Criteria for judging are as follows:

    -Line
    The drift line is defined as the ideal path a vehicle must take on course and is marked by inner clipping points, outer clipping points, and transition zones. Inner Clipping Point are reference points on the course where the vehicles front bumper should come as close as possible to the reference point. Outer Clipping Points are reference points are scored by determining how close the corner of the vehicle’s rearbumper comes to the point. Transition Zones are areas on track where the direction of the line changes and vehicles must change the direction of their drift. Scoring will be based on the execution of the transition. The drift line will be given when track layout is posted.

    -Angle

    The maximum angle at which a driver can maintain control of their vehicle without sacrificing speed.

    -Overall Impression

    Overall Impression is the most subjective part of the drivers runs. Overall Impression is just what it sounds like: The drivers overall ability to take the specific judging criteria and display itin the most personal way each driver can. That is the essence of style. Examples include drifting line and proximity to barriers/obstacles.

    Qualifying:
    No qualifying, rooms are now First Come First Serve


    Spinouts
    Anytime a driver spins out or experiences major under-steer during a run, a 0 score will be awarded. Off Course Unless otherwise specified during the judging meetings, if at any time 3 tires or more are off course during a run, the driver will be given a score of 0.

    Clipping Points
    All clipping points will be sorted on track layout. Anytime an Inner Clipping Point is hit, the vehicle will be considered to be off course, and points will either be deducted, or the driver will be scored a 0, depending on the severity of the hit. Hitting an Outer Clipping Point with anything other than the driver's rear bumper will be counted as 3 tires off course and will be scored a 0. (i.e. hitting the line with the rear tire, door, etc.) Slight contact with a wall in the Outer Clipping Zone will not result in a point deduction if the hit does not disturb or affect the course of the drivers run. This means no major corrections were needed after the hit and the driver was still able to maintain good line, speed, and angle. If the hit occurs at any other point on track other than the marked Outer Clipping Zones points may be deducted. If a spin or major under steer results from contact with an Outer Clipping Zone an automatic score of 0 will be given.

    Tandem Elimination Rounds
    Tandem rounds are based on two (2) runs, in Head-to-Head format, with competitors paired up basedon seeding position. The higher qualifier will lead the first run and the second led by the lower qualifier.The critical success factor is for the lead car to be able to run the course without error while being pressured by the following car. The following car is attempting to out drive the lead car. Driver consistency during a tandem battles is critical.

    Lead Car
    The lead car must be able to clear the course without making errors due to distraction or pressure by the following car trailing close behind.

    Following Car
    The following car needs to run the same basic line as the lead car but may also take a higher line in order to pressure the lead driver. Taking a lower line than the lead car wil result in a loss of advantage. If the lead car is off line, then the following car will gain advantage points by staying on the correct line. The car should keep as close to the lead car as possible to gain the advantage.

    Passing
    Passing is NOT encouraged during tandem battles. Passing is only allowed if the lead car fumbles, is well off line, or loses drift. Passing must be executed in a safe and professional manner. A safe pass is one that is done in such a way that the car being passed does not lose any speed after the pass is complete. Passing must be done while in drift, without interrupting the line of the car being passed and in the proper line. If a pass results in contact, the passing car may be penalized.

    Collisions
    In the event of contact between two cars during a tandem battle, the driver at fault will lose advantage points. Incidental contact is allowed, but not encouraged. If possible, drivers are required to complete the entire course while maintaining drift, even if the other driver crashes, hits, spins, stalls, oris not able to complete the run. Drivers are always being judged as long as they are on course.

    With everybody doing their best to get used to the physics I don't like the idea of having CMs... It's not like they actually give you more grip, they just make everything snappier.

    Sure I'm down! Sounds like alot of fun. I'm already catching on to a few of my cars characteristics and feel. Hopefully I'll have my second Comp car built and mastered by then.

    Sounds awesome, just sceptical about having two tires running in the same class. Due to what happened last time with caramel :nervous:

    It's not about whether he can make it work, I was just thinking about the dynamics of it tbh

    dunno me and conscience proved in gt5 if you have the right tune it CH and CM could be matched. maybe a HP/weight limit on the tyres? i dunno its season 1 for gt6 its just going to be a learning curve for everyone compwise.

    I would be interested, but will have to wait till much closer to find out whether I will actually be able to attend it due to time zones/ work etc.

    This is where it wen't wrong in the previous seasons Spank, not to be a realist or a plain dou***, but please stick to one tire compound. I recommend CH because everyone is still learning, most will just have learned how to drift properly around the time VDC starts, and almost 80% of the people learning to drift are using CH. Don't mess up here by putting your own feelings above the consideration of the competitors. I understand it is "YOUR" competition but like the previous years, "YOUR" competition can become solely "YOURS" if you do not appeal to the applicants. Final note, please have someone with an easier method of recording, editing, and uploading do the line videos. Just my two cents.

    I am not competing this season. I will be thrre to judge and record. From testing last night i came to find cm to be easier to drift on. They provided more grip and make it a bit more realistic. But having conversations with multiple people, the competition will continue to be ch. I am changing setup now.

    As for line video, i believe i did pretty well in explaining the line. But people began to.ask others and as this always happens down the line words got mixed up. I am buying a capture card this weekend and will be able to explain it all better with a mic over the video.

    What if CM is the better tyre? (can't say if it's true, just bought a wheel a couple of days ago) Are we all gonna be stubborn and keep using CH which would require more precise tuning and practice (and spinning :p )? Don't get me wrong I get why you went for CH-only after all, just putting it out there :) . I saw your post on FB about the tyres and decided to try it, and it felt sooo much more logical to me from a noob-point of view.
    Sorry for being off-topic :/
