Following on from a successful race night on the Gran Tursimo Sport Platform, I have decided to set up a mini series to finish of the year. So I present to you the 2018 Track Stars Mini Series!

The majority of the series will be run using the Group 2 cars that are seen in the Japanese Super GT Series, with the idea of creating a fast paced touring car series similar to the DTM and Super GT series. The 2018 season will be used to as test run ahead of a expanded 2019 with a mixture of short fast paced sprint races and a pair of longer distance rounds to finish off the year. On each race night we will complete the event with support race, which will be a different class of racing each week. All interested drivers are welcome to race with no entry cut offs. While we will be keeping a points tally the main objective of the series is to have some fun races and test out different cars and tracks.

Races will take place on Sunday nights with the room opening at 7:30PM AEDT and Racing starting at 8:10PM AEDT.

Cars

The following cars are eligible to compete in the Group 2 portion of the series:

Nissan GT-R ’16 Gr. 2
Lexus RC f ’16 Gr. 2
Honda NSX Concept-GT ’16 Gr. 2

Balance of Performance: We will be using the in game BoP for this series

Drivers are welcome to change cars as they please. The aim of this series is to have fun so we would rather everyone driving a car they enjoy instead of being stuck with a car they hate.

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 adress the situation.

Through the livery editor you can choose your own number in the “Race Items” tile without losing the default livery I’m pretty sure. If that makes sense to you lol.

Oh also I must add, the graphics and write up for the V8 series are gone. I have to start all over. I usually save everything to a external hard drive. Seems I didn’t save that which took ages! We are not usually this late at updates and prizes and write ups etc. but I can assure everyone that we haven’t forgot.

Real prizes and forum awards will be coming soon.

Forum awards will be giving for ItzRacing ItzRacing series to. If ITZ wants to throw in a few more rounds we could throw in a winning prize.

Haha unfortunately only 2 digits allowed ;). Could go with 00 to still rep some old school Lowndes lol.

There’ll be some updates if you haven’t already started them.

Start time is above the car choices, if that’s what you mean.

What. No 3 numbers! :(:D Na all good man. Thanks for letting me know. Yeah I’m guessing there’s a massive update. I’ll boot it up shortly.

Oh I get it, the writing is really small. But yeah, that’s racing room time and the above is time in reality lol.

I saved every other PSD, images txt etc to hard drive. After the laptop died I was sure I saved it to drive, but no go. I usually use a hidden admin forum to do the write ups, oh well. It will not be as good, but I’ll break out something lol.

I’m actually looking forwards to a bit of Gtsport racing. I like the feeling of being completely crap and slowly get better lol.

Cheers mate.

Sorry I didn’t respond sooner to all of this, I was racing speedway tonight! I’ll have a scan through later in the day and update the signups

So the ‘time of day’ for each round is the setting for the track time in game that I’ll be using so that if anyone wanted to get some practice in they were going to have the same settings and not have any surprises come race night like I might have accidentally done previously lol

I’m happy for now just to have a small fun series for the end of the year and hopefully iron out bugs and trial different cars. But I’d like to have a discussion with you about my plans for 2019 whenever you have a bit of free time mate.

Yes, we will be using the BoP. I did some testing a month or 2 ago and they were very close on lap times.
