DriverSports GTS Pre-Season | Sunday April 15 | Fuji F

Post  Forgetful on Wed Apr 11, 2012 11:45 pm


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.

Should be on tonight around normal race time, hopefully there's a crowd like last week to get a look at half-distance-ish races. Will post lap times if noone else does by then.

K, that was my guess. Going half distance will be interesting in the premium TCs.

Good couple of runs with robiker and clacksman. Tricky thing is managing the car in the last couple laps of the stint. It's probably worth focusing any setup changes towards that goal.

Good couple of runs with robiker and timneyb. Tricky thing is managing the car in the last couple laps of the stint. It's probably worth focusing any remaining driving ability towards that goal.

1'38.4 RX7LM - two laps, not much tune, bad gearbox
1'39.9 A4TC - ehhh
1'37.9 Speed 6 - some tune (GTData'd), bad driver

Tim I think your GTData tune is slightly wack. Stated aero of 20/45 doesn't make stated 601pp, but 35/45 (max front/same rear) does.

You would be correct. I know my front aero is maxed.

So you use the TVR then. Twisted Evil

Worked on RX7LM for an hour, got it good enough on tire wear to race it, system locked up exiting practice room, have no idea what I ended up on, can't get back on until 9:25. Boo.
