GT Cup (GT5)
19th October 2011, 12:21 at 12:21 pm #130383
The GT Cup is back for its third season, but this time theres going to be a nice change in the cars used. This time we’re going for a multi class series.
Here’s the usual rules and regulations for this season…
| League Host – Shyguy2008 |
| Location – My Lounge |
| Transmission – Auto/Manual |
| Tyre Compound Restrictions – Unrestricted (Must have the same on front and rear)|
| Driving Line – On |
| Traction Control – 1-5 |
| Skid Recovery Force – Off |
| Active Steering – Off |
| Active Stability Management – Off |
| ABS – 1 |
| Tuning – Unrestricted |
| Game Mode – 15 Minute Qualifying Session And 1 hour Race |
| Start Type – Grid Start with false start/Rolling Start |
| Boost – No |
| Pit stops – Mandatory |
| Grip Reduction On Wet Track/Track Edge – Real |
| Mechanical Damage – Light |
| Laps – 60 minute ‘enduro’ race and 30 minute ‘sprint’ races |
| Grid Order – Fastest First |
| Penalty – Weak |
| Race Finish Delay – 180sec to let everyone finish |
| Car Restrictions – Car you requested before the start of the season |
| Power – Car dependant |
| Weight – Car dependant |
| Tyre Restrictions – Car dependant |
The points system is a new one for this season, it is awarded for each class rather than overall finish;
1st – 20
2nd – 14
3rd – 10
4th – 8
5th – 6
6th – 4
7th – 2
8th – 1
– Drivers must complete 90% of the race distance to be eligable to score points, also said driver must not have rage quited.
- Each team can have a maximum of two drivers.
- They must both use the same car.
Pit Stops and Tyres:
-Drivers may qualify on any of the available tyres:
M Class – Racing Medium (Dry)
M Class – Racing Softs (Dry)
M Class – Racing Intermediates (Wet)
M Class – Racing Wets (Wet)
C Class – Sport Mediums
C Class – Sport Softs
C Class – Racing Wets
- Then the driver can start the race on any tyre they wish regardless of the tyre they used in qualifying.
- Pit stops are now mandatory due to the need to use two compounds.
- Drivers must use two different compounds during a race.
- During ‘Sprint’ races each driver must make atleast one pit stop.
- During ‘Enduro’ races each driver must make atleast two pit stops.
- The pit window will be after the first 20% of the race and before the final 20% of the race, you cannot pit on the lap specified. If the pit window is for example 4 laps then you can pit from lap 5 on wards until you start the final 4 laps. The exact laps are specified on the calender.
- There will be a 15 minute quali session to start off with, then either two short races or one race which will be one hour in length, depending on event type (Give or take a few minutes depending on track)
- Before qualifying will start there will warm up to make any last changes to setup and get familiar with the track while we wait for remaining driver to join.
- When I reset the track for quali I will set the race start timer to 20 minutes, that will give us 15 minutes to do qualifying and then a 5 minute break before race one, and then when I change the grid setting for race 2 I will start a 5 minutes race start timer to give us a 5 min break between races. This is mainly jsut to save time
-If any driver is found guilty must obey these penalties, if they do not they will incure disqualification from that race.
-using the wrong car in a race/car that isn’t allowed – DSQ from that race.
-crossing the line after 15 minutes are up in qualifying and continuing to set another lap +30 second penalty
-I will be saving a re watching the race replays so see any incidents people have or haven’t reported and then with everyone else’s views punishments will be distributed if needed
-Having a different type of tyre on the rear to the front 30 second penalty, if doing this causes and accident then said driver will be disqualified.
-Once you have been allowed to go on track you cannot go into the settings for the car, if you are found to be doing so (i.e have the car settings icon next to your name) you will be immediately disqualified.
There are a few changes from last season, firstly new cars (see bellow), another new points system.

Please read this bit as it is very important.
Because the cars have different BHP and weight limitations, we will have to have a fairly strict procedure to make sure no one has more BHP than they should have etc.
So to do this once I reset the track for qualifying no one joins the track, I will then tell people on the chat when they can join the track, while I change the BHP/Weight settings for each car.
If you get kicked off track due to the changing BPH/Weight setting then please wait untill I’ve finished, but DO NOT go into the car settings though because you could then be changing BHP/Weight of the car.
Once everyone is on track and had their car checked for correct BHP/Weight, the 15 minute qualifying session will begin. Again DO NOT leave the track back to the lounge at any time during qualifying or between quali and the race.
Then the race will start. The starting procedure will be a standing start with the fastest qualifier first. The races will last half an hour for each or about 1 hour depending on event. Again you have to use two types of tyres, either the Racing Softs or Racing Mediums or Sports Softs or Sports Mediums depending on the Class
As this is a multi class season there will be a few rules on lapping slower cars (i.e M Class’s lapping C Class’s). If an M Class car is coming up on a C Class car the C Class car must hold its line and the M Class car will find its way around, however if the C Class car can see there is a M Class car coming up the inside dont turn into the corner. This is for both straights and corners as M Class are better in both than C Class.
When I reset the track for quali I will set the race start timer to 20 minutes, that will give us 15 minutes to do qualifying and then a 5 minute break before race one, and then when I change the grid setting for race 2 I will start a 5 minutes race start timer to give us a 5 min break between races. This is mainly jsut to save time
TBA at the moment
Also time wise it will be at 8:00 on a monday so not much different than last season but this is to get races finished earlier.

I’m provisionally interested, although can you please let me know what time the races will be, as that will be the biggest factor that determines if I race or not, due to my time zone, and also other leagues that I am in.

So it’s 8:30 in the morning? If the events last much more than an hour I might struggle to compete. Otherwise I’m interested (not sure how good a job I can do without skid recovery though).

Car: undecided yet, but I think I own them all so if I’m slow picking I’ll take what’s left19th October 2011, 15:17 at 3:17 pm #183232
It will be on a Monday around 8-8:30 BST.
I’ve added you to the list David, but in a new team for now unless you want to team up with anyone who’s in a team on their own?19th October 2011, 15:21 at 3:21 pm #183233
It will be 8:30 PM matt, 8:30 in the morning is far too early for me :P19th October 2011, 16:05 at 4:05 pm #183234
I was going to say… I’m in then. How much of a rush to pick a car is there?
“Cars with an ‘*’ next to them are the only cars free to choose as the rest have already been picked”
Do you mean without an ‘*’? Looking at the team list it looks like the ones with ‘*’ are taken.19th October 2011, 17:09 at 5:09 pm #183235
OK, I probably won’t be competing as that’s 6:30 am for me, which is far too early for me :P19th October 2011, 19:18 at 7:18 pm #183236
It’s so hard to choose! The GT-R is easy to drive and consistent, the NSX is exciting and faster but more difficult to drive.19th October 2011, 20:02 at 8:02 pm #183237
Raybrig NSX for me please.19th October 2011, 20:16 at 8:16 pm #183238

I thought it might be a bit of an awkward time ed, sorry.
Theres no rush matt, you have loads of time, but the quicker you pick the more likely you’ll get the one you want, and yeh I did mean without (my bad) i’ll change that, i’ll add you to the list matt and JT. Any idea what team you two want to go in want to go in? :)19th October 2011, 21:19 at 9:19 pm #183240
I was hoping to ask him some time but I will might as well say it now, can I team up with David A aka David_JV? That’s if it is alright with him. If he’s online now, I’ll ask him ;)19th October 2011, 21:24 at 9:24 pm #183241
@JT77 – I’m up for it :)19th October 2011, 21:36 at 9:36 pm #183242
