GT3 Season 1




Race Information:
Date: Wednesday 24th June 2015

Event starts: 8:00pm (UK time)
Event format:

Notices:
Rules & regulations: Before you take to the track in the league race, make sure you are fully aware of the rules and regulations of the leagues. As a driver in our leagues, you are required to do your very best to ensure clean and fair racing at all times.

No-shows: If you are unable to attend the race, please inform the League Coordinator and leave a post in this thread BEFORE the race takes place. Note the rules of participation here.

Lobby settings: If you are unsure about the rest of the lobby settings that will be used, look here.

Tyre wear: Note that tyre wear is set to "x7" with the intention to spice up the strategy element of the races, where drivers may go for different tyre compounds and one or even two pit-stops may be needed, depending on drivers' ability to look after their tyres. This gives the racing more of an "endurance" feel, despite the race only lasting for about an hour. And remember; it's the same for everyone!

Save your replay: As a means of helping the stewards with any enquiries, all drivers are required to save their race replays and keep it stored for at least one week after the race has taken place. If you are involved in an incident or see something during the race that you feel needs to be investigated, you are free to make a stewards enquiry - however if enquiries are submitted without replay or race footage available, it is likely we can't do anything.

EVERYONE be aware that the Mercedes is very bad on the brakes. If you follow me into any heavy braking you MUST adapt you braking point or you will run into the back of either me or @Devastation.

1:59 dead so far. Probably still a small amount of time left with setup tweaks and just more lap practice. Could be an interesting one strategy wise, the softs don't seem to last here at all

managed a 56.7 for quali practice. still a bit of time to find as well i think, not massive chunks to my knowledge but i can guarantee no ive said that, someones gonna come forward with a 55.x!! havent done any race practice yet but looking forward to it. think there could be a few different strategies at this race again. may set up a social for 2moro night so if anyone is interested in it, like this comment and il instantly put you as confirmed

I still think softs are the way to go if you have the pace

Halfway mark for Season 1 has passed so hopefully things pick up again for the final 2 races (staying out relegation spots, pushing for title etc... )

Not had much practice for this but have a strategy and a tune in mind for tomorrow! Had a few 1:57.3/4's so praying I make it into the 56's before the race, my race pace on Soft's is currently at high 57's just now though :)

Well I'm screwed then. Can only do late 1:58 at best. Looking forward to viewing all your cars multiple times as you lap me.

sorry about last night guys, so much going on lately dont know whether im coming or going!! looking forward to this race, the track on this game with these cars should allow for some really good racing, but as atticus said (i think it was him anyway) be careful about braking points!! if youre chasing someone and you can clearly see theyre struggling on the brakes, just be prepared to either A) brake earlier or (and this is more for the late brakers) B) Chuck it down the inside (just make sure you get it stopped in time!!) as i said guys lets have a fun race and hopefully pit stops dont **** me up!!

PS. mclaren boys i may need your help before the race so il start a party before hand

Heads up guys...

We aim for the race to go ahead as normal tonight, but if one third (or more) of the drivers in the league end up being unable to join the lobby and race due to the recent Xbox issue reported here, then the race will be postponed (or cancelled should it be impossible to arrange a new race date).

EDIT: If you are experiencing this issue, uninstalling the car packs apparently stop the game from jumping/freezing. If the problem continues, you NEED to message me on Xbox Live or on here, to alert me.

Thanks in advance for your patience guys!

Frustrating race!

Wookie Pete lost it on the kerb on the exit of the chicane I went past him and there was a little contact after he came back on the track. I then waited for him and then he rammed my car as I parked it off the racing line so I could give him the place back.

I managed to hold around a 5 second gap in 4th to Blizzard when I pitted I guess I had to wait for repairs as I lost positions to Blizzard Mcmillan and Meireloso. I found it hard to get past either of them and finished 5th after Livingdead disconnect and Mcmillan pitted

btw Meireloso finished ahead off me, it says on the results I was ahead but he crossed the line before me

*Actually after looking at my footage I did park it too close to the corner and I apologise to @Wookie pete

I had an extra long pitstop to fix my steering problem after I spun and hit the wall on the first lap. So you can imagine my surprise when I saw you were still in the pits and I'd passed you! Unlucky though mate, you were clearly quicker than me throughout the race, and probably deserved 3rd over me!
