DriverSports GTS Pre-Season | Sunday April 8 | Daytona Road

Post  Forgetful on Wed Mar 28, 2012 12:23 am


DriverSports.org is proud to introduce an international championship series for GT style race cars. GTS is a class of purpose built race cars representing a broad range of manufacturers competing on iconic GP tracks the world over. The selection ranges from standard LM race cars that were made popular in GT4, to the Premium RMs new to GT5, certain SuperGT, DTM and even new Touring Car DLC are eligible for this series. All told, 17 cars are at your disposal, all of which are capable of winning. Only DriverSports offers such diversity while maintaining the competitive balance.

Each car has been prescribed a specific engine build that result in as level a playing field as possible. The prescribed parts produce a specific redline and turbo boost gauge reading, meaning all competitors can be certain of the parts equipped on their opponents cars.

This series will consist of 2 pre-season races followed by a 6 race championship series. Anyone is welcome in any one or all races, regardless of their ability or desire to complete the entire season. Once entered in the series, however, a driver must stay committed to the same car for the duration of the Regular Season. Drivers may run different cars in the Preseason.

Each driver will be awarded 1 drop of their worst finish to be excluded from the final championship standings. After the pre-season races points will be awarded to determine the order in which the first race of the championship will be sorted (if multiple divisions are required), and once at the track a live qualifying session will give everyone a chance at pole position in their division. During the season divisions will be sorted by current championship standings. Despite a maximum of 11 drivers per division, all drivers have an equal opportunity at the overall race win, as final finishing positions are determined based on a driver's overall race completion time.

No pre-qualifying or licensing is necessary. To participate a driver needs to register for each race prior to the registration deadline (30 mins before the race). A Live Qualifying Session will be held prior to each race to stage the grid. All driver aids, except ABS, are disabled.

I can't put up a Lounge for some reason, so I am just going to make an open lobby. Voice communication will be on, room is "Driversports.org-GTS".

Well that was mildly entertaining... did a couple of 5 lap races, trying to balance out the tire wear on the M3 which seems quite severe all around. I think I got that figured out, 1'45.2 is my fastest lap time after about 10 laps, which I suspect is no where close. 1'42s?

Drivers who randomly joined either raced me for one lap or 1 corner, and left after failing to knock me off the track or spent the whole race turning donuts in the infield. So, basically we have the most mature community in the world! Wink

The Bus Stop chicane is as spectacular in the M3 as it was in the RX-7 I last drove here in a race. cheers

Good stuff. Thanks for giving it a go in public. If anyone is going to do so in the future, if it's not too much trouble, could we get you guys to post at the PSN and GTP threads as well? No worries if you can't.

I will absolutely do so. Room was up an hour, very few people wandered in, and as I wrote, all of them were just looking to wreck people it seemed.

More practice has my BMW running a personal best of 1'43.642.. Which makes me suspect the pace is further out than I previously anticipated. Hopefully someone gives me a rabbit to chase soon. Suspect

Looks like I'll be keeping my one drive per week on Sundays then Smile

I'll be driving something premium, because I am a polygon snob. Also, something with flashy decals, because I love the ugly, so I don't know if the RM lexus will be for me (although being able to break out some garish Easter paint jobs would be nice; so many pinks, yellows and purples to choose from). That reduces the cars I'll consider to a nice small number for testing next week.

My car choice is already narrowed to one of either a Standard car or a Premium.

There's an FTO general tune in GTData already, I have decent tunes for the ISF and M3 somewhere on a car and will stick them in GTData shortly, the other cars I don't think I have anything beyond an edu-guess.

Seems I have all of the Premiums available and broken in (with no irreversible mods yet). Get in line if you want a clone in the next week.

The DLC cars (RX-7 & R33 TCs) aren't sendable afaik. Might just be the : Tuscan, IS F, Garaiya, Weds IS that are sendable with the 1M Cr value cap on sending cars. I could also send an IS F RM or Tuscan RM either ready for this series or stock.

Also looks like I need to try HWKs tune for the M3 ...

I am pretty sure I didn't screw up typing in the minute (been known to do that...) but now you have me worried that my room was set wrong... Replay doesn't seem to think so, but iono... pale
