GTPlanet’s Weekly Race Series to Resume Hosting Online Events Starting This Week

Gran Turismo SportWeekly Race Series 400 November 13, 2019 by

Following a long hiatus, GTPlanet’s Weekly Race Series (WRS) will resume hosting Online Races, beginning this week. The races, using GT Sport, are modeled after our weekly time trial events, with multiple time slots to account for varying time zones of our members.

We also have a new online host, and a new events schedule. Registry member and experienced online event organizer Pigems will be hosting the races, and the schedule for our upcoming events is below.

On this Thursday, November 14, we will have a single time slot event featuring our Week 102 Time Trial Combination, the 2011 Audi R18 at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.

Event Time Details:

  • 2100 Eastern / 1800 Pacific / 0200 UTC

Following that event, we will begin our normal cadence of a weekend “Worldwide” time slot and a weeknight North America Time Slot. Those will use the Week 103 Time Trial, in the Ferrari 365 GTB “Daytona” at the GP Layout of Nurburgring.

Worldwide Event Details:

  • Sunday, November 17
  • 1600 Eastern / 1300 Pacific / 1000 UTC

North America Event Details:

  • Thursday, November 21
  • 2100 Eastern / 1800 Pacific / 0200 UTC

WRS Time Trials

We took a bit of time away from online races, but our Time Trials have continued on as strong as ever. Our most recently completed event was the aforementioned week 102, in the 2011 Audi R18 at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.

The results are in, and 23 racers took part. Congratulations to Philtaylor17 for the overall win, with a lap time of 1:58.745. Rounding out the podium are longtime GTPlanet forum member and WRS participant Mr P, and MrCooper.
