AOR Gran Turismo Super GT Season 1
Driver Tier Placements

Hello to all drivers, and welcome to the Driver Placements for Season 1 of GTSport Super GT here on AOR.

In a similar fashion to Project Cars leagues, we have separated the drivers into 3 tiers, primarily in order of speed in the recent Time Trial event, as well as an element of background knowledge of our drivers. These tiers are marked Elite, Pro and Semi-Pro, in order of speed (Elite is fastest, and so on). Due to an excessive number of signups, we have had to use one reserve for each tier, and the decision of who would be reserve was performed on the basis of sign-up date, therefore those that were last to signup in their respective tier will be a reserve. It is unfortunate that this is the case, but hopefully everybody gets to race at some point this season.

The GTSport Team will be keeping an eye on the tiers as the season progresses, and will alter the drivers in each tier accordingly if we feel someone has been misplaced. Each tier will be assigned at last one co-ordinator, and we will be contacting some drivers in tiers without a co-ordinator about taking up this position.

If we have missed anybody in these placements, please accept our apology and contact us; we will do our best to correct things.

I'm curious to know what the top guys in Pro and Semi Pro, and the guys in Elite, drove in the time trials.

In case anyone else is interested for the sake of finding out which car is better, here's a list of the fastest driver from each tier and the car they drove:
  • Fastest for Elite tier: @Browneskiii
    • Car driven: Lexus RC-F
  • Fastest for Pro tier: @Gabri04Martin
    • Car driven: Lexus RC-F
  • Fastest for Semi-Pro tier: @F1fan15
    • Car driven: Nissan GT-R
So it seems the RC-F is the best car, at Interlagos anyways

Ah no, I forgot to add that tiers in the photo are in signup order, not pace, I will release the spreadsheet for speed in a moment.
So disregard this post then, we'll see who was the fastest soon enough

What was the cut off for the Elite tier?
Looking at the sheet, you are the fastest time in Tier 2, there is less than a tenth in it. It was very close and very tricky decision to make to choose where to put people when the field is so close.

Lexus is stable af at Interlagos.
The GT-R was a little wayward for me... and I didn't even try the NSX lol

I did try to warn you that the cutoff was going to be around a 22.3 so I thought you'd try to go a bit quicker :p

Crazy fast tier considering the fastest was 21.6 and the slowest was 22.3. Add pressure that makes you even quicker into it and this is gonna be whoever can be the most consistent that comes out on top. Looking forward to it ;)

Well the NSX felt stable as well, at least with the setup I was using. Anyways that is based on signup order according to @HRacingGreen so I basically cancelled the entire post lol.
I didn't bother with a setup... since it's a default setup league. Probably why it felt different lol

Tuning prohibited does indeed mean you can't use a setup, however, as said in the TT Thread OP, you're free to use a setup in the event as there's nothing we can do to stop you. It was advised you didn't use a setup but it really doesn't matter, no need to do it again.

Oh alright, good to know.

To be fair that lap time was my limit, so in the right tier. And I travel a bit with work so not sure I could practice enough to keep up with the top tier guys!

Either way I am just looking forward to league racing again!

Holy crap, I was the fastest driver in Semi-Pro by 3 tenths?! What would have been the difference if I hadn't used a setup? I need to find out right now
