    You could consult BayneHamlin and rallymorten to see what they do. rFactor has been used as well. I voted Trans Am.

    Based on the poll so far, a lot of people want to see a Trans Am Series. However, there are also a handful that want to see a genuine Xfinity Series and a Whelen Modified Series. Decisions, decisions.

    I think Whelen would be a lot of fun to watch. I know when I get to see the race IRL there's always a lot of close racing.

    A decision from VRR will come by end of the weekend. Kuni has opened up the idea of doing two series simultaneously which is currently being discussed.

    Making the formal announcement this afternoon (or morning for the Americans) that the series will become the VRR 2016 International Trans Am Series. The series will use the Trans Am found found on BullRing Motorsports and will feature a much larger field size than initially expected. The series will follow partially what has been laid out by the VRR Straight Talk IndyCar Series, with the season starting at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City, Mexico. The grid size will be limited to 32 cars, or 16 teams of 2. Four car types are available; Corvette, Jaguar, Mustang and Viper. Each manufacturer is limited to 4 teams and 8 cars. Teams will be able to confirm if they will be going along with the change or not. Teams confirmed are:
    Cat Devil Racing-Viper
    Primary Sponsors: Sony, PlayStation
    #19: Camyron Jackson/USA
    #91: Kunimitsu Kino****a/JPN
    Black Rose Racing Team-Mustang
    Primary Sponsors: Coca-Cola Vanilla, Apple
    #7: Evangeline Porter/USA
    #80: Sebastian Devereux/FRA
    Cherokee Motorsports-Corvette
    Primary Sponsors: Verizon Wireless, Dairy Queen
    #33: Behrris Windross/USA
    #96: Clayton Hardy/CHK
    Polaris Motorsports-Mustang
    Primary Sponsors: Alienware, Swiss Bank
    #48: Lucas Larese/USA
    #84: TBD
    I will likely end up making a new thread since this one has undergone more changes than Michael Jackson's nose.

    Hopefully this change will become the last necessary one, I understand it is all one big experiment but we do need some stabillity as well to make it work. And if we need a new thread, might as well, since this has more different identities than Doctor Who.

    Also, where does one find the templates alone for the Trans Am series? I've looking through BullRing's website, but I have not found them...

    Ok, I'm seeing that much. But I only see download links for .exe-type files, for which I probably need the game for...

    No since it wouldn't be a factory team.

    If any teams have a vacancy or if any single drivers want a team mate, feel free to shoot me a PM and we'll discuss matters.

    That team is run by my sister. It'd be up to her.

    Angel, Lucas Larese (#48) is on this team... I thought that you and your sister would run the BRRT team.

    No. My sister is amaterasu. We don't run the same team hardly ever.

    I hate making decisions.

    If the teams can only have 2 members, then @Niku Driver HC can have my spot. I'll run independent.

    Sorry to put you in the decision-making spot, Dur, I was just waiting for any decisions from Jahgee on it, but I guess it had to land on you. Well, count me in as the #76 car within Team Kate Upton, with manufacturer TBA.

    @BRRT_Angel if I were to host the Xfinity thing using the mod, would you be okay with it. It would be based on more of the modern calendar.

    As a backup plan for if Kuni's attempt falls through again, maybe. Kuni's shouldn't fail this time.

    Thanks for the offer but I'll pass. I'm involved in enough of these B-spec series already.
