As part of the Virtual Reality Racing network, I am able to present a premier, road course focused touring car series on the NASCAR Racing 2003 Season game using elaborate mods. This series will use an Australian V8 Supercar mod that we will use for this series, the VRR International Touring Car Series. The series is B-Spec. For those that find this at random, a B-Spec series is where you reserve an entry that is driven by AI. You can create a livery, team, or both, and roleplay throughout the season. It is important to emphasize that you do not need the game in the slightest. As long as you have access to GTPlanet on a semi consistent basis, you will be fine, that and it does technically count towards your GTPlanet Racing Career if you are worried about such a thing. If you can't design cars, various people in the community would be happy, or at least able to help with that. Sit back and enjoy the fun!
