Driving Standards

As we have damage turned of for the races we will not be opposed to a little bit of rubbing and bumping between cars as long as no one has their race severely affected by any contact. In the event contact does occur and a driver does lose more than the one position we recommend that the driver attempting to pass drops back behind the affected driver to address the situation.

Current Touring Car Entry List Unveiled as a Tyre War emerges

With the opening round of the Track Stars Racing Series fast approaching, organisers have revealed the current Entry list for the 2019 Track Stars Touring Car Series.

The entries are headlined by last years Champion, ItzRacing, who will return to the wheel of the Lexus RC F Group 2 Car that he piloted in the last 2 rounds of the 2018 series, claiming wins in both the Bathurst and St Croix endurance events to ensure series victory. With the Lexus package being proven to work in the series it appears the logical choice was to stick with what works for Itz!

Another driver on the entry list that will be very tough to beat and will certainly have aspirations of taking the Championship this time around will be Pubs16. Having driven the Nissan GT-R to 2 race wins and 2nd in the championship, one would assume Pubs will be back in his favourite car to try and claim the series this time.

Racing Jordyn showed some improvement over the course of the 2018 mini series and will be back again with a new number (#46). Jordyn will be keen to continue his rise up the timesheets and hopefully challenge the top 2. Another pair of drivers who were involved in last years mini series, Dave_B and DZITEZ will also return in 2019 and will be looking to move up the order on race nights.

Adamwyman will be new to the grid this season and early testing results indicate that he won’t just be racing to make up the numbers and will surely be involved in some close racing over the course of the year.

After competing last season evilknight85 is not on the entry list, however there are whispers that his name will appear on the entry lists shortly and will be racing in the 2019 Track Stars Touring Car Series.

Finally the big story from the entry list was the indication of tyre brands. It was revealed by series organisers that there will be 5 different tyre brands available for use in the 2019 Track Stars Touring Car Series. It appears this announcement will be sure to create a tyre war with Dunlop, Bridgestone, Michelin, Pirelli and Yokohama all vying for race wins and become the best tyre in the series.

Series organisers are calling on all drivers to inform us of their car selection and choice of tyre brand for the upcoming series in the Track Stars Touring Car Series thread.

Round 1 of the Track Stars Touring Car Series will take place on March 17 at Croatia’s Dragon Trail Raceway using the Seaside layout of the track. The opening round will see drivers take part in a pair of 19 lap races.

Race Starts

Please take caution at race starts to ensure yourself and all other competitors make it through turn 1 without incident. With damage turned off you can get away with a little bit of panel rubbing but there should be no excuses for charging into turn 1 and running into someone else and ruining their race right at the start. There will be plenty of time to make your way to the front if you are fast enough.

Driving Standards

Race organisers are not opposed to some light contact during racing for position. But if you make contact with another competitor which causes them to lose more than the single position or a huge chunk of time then it is expected that you either readdress the position or serve a drive through penalty.

Pit In/Out lines


On pit entry we will show a bit of leniency with the pit entry line as it is a sharp change in direction following the exit of the corner. On the pit exit we do ask that you stay inside of the white line for the duration of the markings.

Blocking/Weaving


Drivers will be permitted one defensive move, but we will tolerate constant weaving on the straights or a change in direction.

Attendance Sheets

I was going to remind you that it’s Wednesday

Very nice teaser there, looking forward to seeing the final product

Hopefully the guy doing my logos to svg files comes through with them before the weekend so I can have my liveries finished for round 1, otherwise I might be running an interim paint scheme!

Yeah, that’s the worst when you plan out what you’re going to achieve and when and then other stuff comes along and throws all the plans out of whack...

I do have an svg of the track stars logo, I’ve used it on a few cars so far, I’ll check to see if I’ve shared it in game and get back to you

Pubs16 Pubs16 I just shared the 2 variations of the logos over my lunch break. Hopefully with both that should give you something to play with for different colours if you want to add some colour to the logo.

If anyone else wants to put the logo on the car then you’re more than welcome to do so
