Welcome to Portimão, Portugal!

In our first round, we're visiting the Algavre circuit, which took center stage in the footage and teasers leading up to the Project Cars 2 release.
Opened in 2008, the circuit has seen plenty of GT, Moto and Endurance racing and served as F1 test track.

Expect a beautiful, dry day for our first round, with Qualifying under light clouds and the race transitioning from light to medium clouds (real-time weather progression).

Welcome to Silverstone, the home race of many!

For the second round of the season, we’re visiting one of the most popular tracks in racing! Home of the first Formula One World Championship Race, this track has seen many great moments in its time. It makes its AOR GT3 Comeback after appearing in S9, but missing out on S10.

Usually England can be well-known for its poor weather, but expect only overcast conditions for the race - with no chance of rain throughout. Qualifying is set to be clear also, so a perfect opportunity to get in the perfect lap!

Good luck!

Welcome to the first 90 minute race of the season, at the Nurburgring!

The longest lap of the calendar is here as we attend Nurburgring combined, and this race is a classic. Nurburgring has been around since the 1920s and with the current layout opened in 1984, this track has seen many amazing races. So, strap yourself in and get ready for a big challenge!

Rest easy though, we're still going to be waiting for the first wet race of the season. The race will start with medium cloud, seeing 2 transitions: to clear and then back to medium cloud. No qualifying weather for this race, due to there being no qualifying.

ATTENTION XB1 Drivers:
Due to possible issues with weather transitions on the Xbox One, this round will instead be run with static medium cloud conditions. This does not affect the other platforms, only Xbox One.

Good luck everyone!

This week we stay in Germany as we leave the Nordschleife and make a small trip to Oschersleben, a small town mainly known for its Motorsport Arena. The track itself is very technical and should favour the more lightweight and agile cars.

You might think that after (hopefully) surviving the Nordschleife, everything will be easy from now on. Don't be fooled, because this week you will encounter another big challenge: a whole field of 16/28 cars charging to a perpendicular first corner in the rain! Some of you might think the designer should be beaten in a dark room, while others see it as a great challenge.

Both the race and qualifying will be in the rain.

Good luck to all!

Welcome to Dubai,

Leave the umbrellas and rain tyres in Germany, because there is no chance of rain during the race in Dubai. However tire management will be a returning factor as the tires can really melt away on the extremely hot track surface if you aren't careful. Hopefully racing at night helps in that regard, with cooler temperatures.

If you have some money to spent, consider staying in the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel, known as the only 7 star hotel in the world.

Overcast conditions for both qualifying and race.

*Also note the in-game date which is set to 18 November to achieve colder track temperatures.

Welcome to Sakitto, the Suzuka lookalike!

Suzuka is praised highly by many real life drivers for its technicality and flow. Although Sakitto has some major differences compared to the real life version, it is still an unique and demanding track. Be careful on pit entry as it can be dangerous to slow down after the sweeping left hander a.k.a. the fake 130R.

Medium Cloud for both qualifying and race.

Good luck!

Welcome to Oulton Park!

First use as a race track in the 1950s, this track has grown to be a pure British classic. Hosting many different British Series in its time, the rapidly changing nature of this track has proven it to be challenging at times.

And to add to this, get your umbrellas ready as this race is set to be the second rainy race of the season: with both Qualifying and the Race set to be in Rain conditions.

Good luck everyone!

Welcome to the legendary, Spa-Francorchamps!

Designed in 1920, this track has seen all forms of racing imaginable. A favourite for many, we are sure we'll see excellent battling out of Eau Rouge and down the Kemmel Straight especially. Plus, this race is of course the second 90 minute race of season - meaning the championship leaders will have to navigate the field.

No fear on the weather front as, with a 99.9% accuracy, we can predict a dry race; beginning heavy cloud before a transition to overcast.

Good luck everyone!

Welcome to Texas Roadway!

Once considered one of the fastest tracks on the NASCAR circuit, overtaking should not be a problem for our GT3's! Under the lights at night, it should be a fine looking one as well.

Along with this, there should be no rain to be seen as both the race and qualifying will be under medium cloud conditions.

Good luck all!

Welcome to Laguna Seca!

The track features a downhill chicane dropping you a total of 18 metres, this part of the track is widely known as the corkscrew. The sun is almost always shining in this part of California, resulting in hot track temperatures throughout the year.

Both the race and qualifying are in hazy conditions.
