After some discussion with Red Rum Racing we have decided to host a 5 race series each week. These races will be held using one type of car only. For example in the first week we will be using Comets only, hence the Carrera Cup name.

 

Seeing as we are all billionaires thanks to modders we will have it open to discussion whether to use a custom version of the car for the race. To cast your vote for this simply post your PSN if you want to race and YES/NO to using custom cars. We will be using a vote system of needing 75% or more in favour of custom cars to use them.

 

The first week is obviously Comets. Each week the top 3 'placegetters' choose a car for the next week and we will vote which one to choose.

 

There will be 12 spots each week. First in best dressed for the first week. After that, if you raced the previous week you get priority over newcomers. 

 

The first race will be run around this time next week, further discussion with RRR will decide a time bracket. 

 

If you would like your custom race to be used in the series please put it down with your PSN. I will do the race in my own time and decide which tracks to be used. 

 

All custom tracks will be made known prior to the race. It is up to you if you want to practice it during the week or not.

 

For the first race series these tracks will be used

 

Race 1 Down For Browntown - 3 laps - http://rsg.ms/1buOajg

 

Race 2 Back Entrance - 3 laps - http://rsg.ms/1bZXAcW

 

Race 3 Laguna Seca - 5 laps - http://rsg.ms/1bzM5Td

 

Race 4 Hit the Apex - 2 laps - http://rsg.ms/1cbDG9f

 

Race 5 Sandy Shores GP - 5 laps - http://rsg.ms/1cbDEy5

 

Racers Week 1

 

1. EyeMacHunt -  Custom cars YES - Colour BLUE

2. Tolly Custom cars NO - Colour BLACK

3. mo-seph 

4. AJ Custom cars YES - Colour BRIGHT GREEN

5. ToBeContinued08 - Colour PURPLE

6. Lazyboy Custom cars NO

Reserve list

 

1 - enjoi_thepain

 

 

RACE TIME - Sunday 19th (USA & London date) 

 

4:30 PM EST (New York)

9:30PM London Time

8:30AM Sydney time. (MONDAY)

 

I think that makes it 9:30PM GMT (same as London from what I can gather)

 

Rules

Traffic OFF

Catchup OFF

Custom OFF

Wanted OFF

 

CLEAN RACING. You will be kicked and blacklisted from future events if you intentionally make contact. Given that there may be a bit of lag(which can cause unintentional contact) you may be given the benefit of the doubt depending on the situation.

 

Week 1 Results

 

First place - Tolly 60 points

Second place - Skoader76 48 points

Third - lazyboy 46 points

 

Best racing series I've done so far in GTAO and every position was a contest except for first because no one could catch Tolly. I think Tolly was the happiest that ZigMeister didn't show up for the races. I can safely say that we all look forward to next week.

 

 

RACE WEEK 2

 

Racers

1. EyeMacHunt -  Custom cars YES -

2. Tolly Custom cars YES -

3. mo-seph Custom YES

4. AJ 

5. ToBeContinued08 - 

6. Lazyboy 

7. NittyDon - 

8. 

9. skoader76  

10. pokemon4ever -

11. Swifty 

12. NorthernHawk -  

 

I have put your names down automatically because you were all in last week's race. If I don't hear from you, or you don't want your spot please let me know and I'll remove you.

 

3 votes for far for Sentinel XS

 

We are still open to suggestions. Futo was mentioned a few times. Same time next week. Courses to be decided.

I'm all over this man, ZigMeister666 as you know.

I'm down for custom cars but I don't know if I will have the wins and money for a fully upgraded comet in time (2nd character). Maybe it would be worth alternating between customs and stock each week? Give people a bit of time to patch up their bank. But overall YES

Oh and you guys might feel differently, but I ended up taking laguna out of our playlists. Nice track and everything but overtaking can be tricky.. And too many people get caught on the tyres at the first corner.. Just kinda frustrating when you end up sitting behind someone for 3 laps waiting for a safe spot to overtake

I might be in for this. Depending on time and day of course. I'm No across the board on customs. Regardless of having money, don't want to spend any of it. Getting a little low. I'll give you a def. Answer after I try the tracks out.

I am interested for sure. I also vote for rental cars sans customs, as I play with several fiolks that are not rich and opens it up for everyone.

I'm interested in taking part depending on the time of the event. I'm on between 2:30am -6:30am UTC.

 

PSN ID - coach_wargo

 

No on the custom cars for me. Mainly because I don't want to get rid of any of the cars I currently have to make room for a Comet.

It be cool if someone could put the racers taking part into a spreadsheet or something similar to keep a track of this, I would if I could. Just a suggestion,I'm not sure how to post tables on the forum since the update.

Yes Tolly I'll start an invite only session. Would be good to all meet somewhere in the session in our favourite car first. But it's mainly about the carrera cup. I can't wait.

It may be a bit late but if you want to choose/reserve a colour for your car it will make it easier to identify people. Not for identifying rammers or anything, just good drivers etc. Plus I think the field will look better with all different colours....

 

I shotgun Blue
