DriverSports G Production Series | Sunday July 8 | Laguna Seca

Post  group44 on Sat Jun 30, 2012 8:27 am

Driversports.org is proud to announce its newest series, G Production. This class consists of a large portion of pre-1975 cars under 2 liters available in GT5. They have all been matched in performance to create a highly competitive field. We will be running a six week series in these vintage machines on some of GT's original tracks. Drivers will have to commit to a single car to run for the entire duration of the series.

The regulations for G Production will have the race room set to 128hp and 850kg on Comfort Soft tires with all assists disabled. To achieve these specs, all entries will be allowed to have Stealth Modifications to the engine (Sports Intake Manifold, Racing Air Filter, and Sports Exhaust Manifold). There are a few cars that will also need additional Engine Stage Tuning, and some that will require the use of the Engine Limiter. Please note if your car is high mile, you may show different power/limiter figures than those provided in GTdata. You may not add additional tuning parts to make up for losses in power due to mileage. These extra parts will be readily visible upon tech inspection, and you will be disqualified from the race standings.

In addition to the engine limitations and room settings, GT Auto wings are also not allowed. You may use any combination of weight reduction, chassis stiffening, transmission, drivetrain and suspension parts. To meet the weight restrictions, ballasting (and ballast positioning) is allowed.

The preseason races have shown this field to be very competitive and exciting from the drop of the green to the checkered flag. We at DriverSports look forward to seeing you all on track for this six week showdown.

Schedule:
  • June 17 - Autumn Ring | 2.95 km | 1.83 mi
    24 laps | 70.80 km | 43.92 mi

  • June 24 - Trial Mountain | 3.98 km | 2.47 mi
    21 laps | 83.58 km | 51.87 mi

  • July 1 - Cape Ring South | 3.23 km | 2.01 mi
    23 laps | 74.29 km | 46.23 mi

  • July 8 - Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca | 3.60 km | 2.24 mi
    21 laps | 75.60 km | 47.04 mi
  • July 15 - Circuito de Madrid Reverse | 3.39 km | 2.11 mi
    21 laps | 71.19 km | 44.31 mi
  • July 23 - Nürburgring GP/D | 3.63 km | 2.26 mi
    21 laps | 76.23 km | 47.46 mi

Top 4 under a blanket for a while, then the top 5 as robiker caught up. Few errors here and there but I don't think anyone up front spun right out. Good times.

Not sure if abs dislike or liked Suspect

I hope you enjoyed yourself. As you can see this class lends itself to pack racing once you're up to speed with the peloton. Glad to have you out to race.

Sorry you couldn't make it timneyb, you and the Spitfire are missed. Great turn out thanks to some irregulars Wink Nailed a great Q lap to steal pole again only to throw it away right near the end.
Was quite a phenomenal race with some of the best side by side action I can remember. Superb driving by everyone to keep it all on track Shocked Any one of the top five could have taken the top step of the podium. Congrats to Rooster on a hard fought win and continuing to soldier ahead in the points.

Didn't like the no ABS but it's more because it caught me by surprise. After Rooster told me to lower the bias it helped alot. I'm guessing you just run no ABS on the older cars to give it more realizim. Nice change anyway. Hope to try and squeeze in more racing here with you guys.

We turn off ABS on pretty much everything now Smile

You get used to it. In most race cars you can brake fully and not lock up with warm tires, until you get down to low speeds.

I don't like it either. I have no feel in my brake pedal, like in a real car, and there's usually nothing to let you know the wheels are locked-up until it's too late.

While I agree not having any pedal feedback doesn't help, with the feedback I do get through the wheel I generally know before/when I'm in trouble. I personally like the no ABS so the brake zones are part of where you can gain or lose, and not just hit your mark and pull the trigger.
