The Los Santos Street Racing Championship
The Los Santos Street Racing Championship Is brought to you by the ERDC (Elite Racing Driver’s Club) also in association with Los Santos Customs and Atomic Tire and Rubber Products.
The LSSRC is aimed at driving/racing enthusiasts based all over the GTA forum and aims to provide an exciting, structured, clean racing format across all classes of vehicles and tracks in Los Santos.
The Angel King has offered to set up a forum dedicated to the ERDC racing events and all information regarding race day, qualifying results will be posted there on a regular basis. But will require help from everyone involved to keep it operating smoothly for the benefit of everyone.
The first instalment of the LSSRC will be held across 16 circuit tracks and completed over 2 weekends. The class type of cars will be supers. If all goes well we can roll it out across different classes and race types.
Entry Fee: $5,000 – This needs to be submitted beforehand to my level 1 created character whose only purpose is to receive gifted money from entrants and transfer gifted money to the championship winner in an invite session only. Once all money has been received the level 1 character will then remain dormant until the championship has come to an end and the winner decided. The winnings will be transferred and you are more than welcome to report me and blacklist my name if I don’t. There needs to be a level of trust and just think why would I want to go to all this effort for $80,000 when I could potentially earn this amount anyway through racing and betting, I could also win which would be a bonus J I want this to succeed and I’m not a dick lol.

Class rules & regulations:
Entry requirements for first championship
· EMS upgrade 4 must be installed
· No other modification limitations, open class.
16 tracks - Covered over 2 weeks
8 races per week – E.g. 4 races Saturday evening & 4 races Sunday evening.
Race times - will agreed before the event but the time zone will be UK GMT 0
Qualifying sessions – A day will be set where racers are given 15 minutes per track to post their best times. Once you have completed your qualifying sessions for the tracks you will be racing at, your times must be screen shot with a date and time stamp, and then submitted. This will then determine your grid position for race day.
Race Day – Because we cannot arrange grid positions before hand I think the best format will be a rolling start. All races will be 11 laps long, the first lap will be used to organise everyone into their grid positions so no bolting off! After the first few turns have been made and everyone is in position the leader will then lead the pack at half race pace. Once you have crossed the start finish line and have entered lap 2 only then can you go a full race speed. Anyone who fails to comply with this rule and bolts off one lap one or cheats on grid position, their results will not count and you will kicked from the championship and will not be allowed to partake in any future events, their entry fee will also not be refundable.
Split races – I have noticed that some tracks don’t actually permit 16 racers, I have struggled with this myself when creating my own tracks due to objects being in the way or an uneven surface (god DAMN it) so I think a split race format will suit these types of tracks.
· All 16 drivers qualify
· Top 8 drivers with the fastest time will do 1 race (no points awarded in this race)
· Next 8 drivers with the fastest time with do a separate race (no points awarded in this race)
· In each race the top 4 finishers will automatically qualify for the third and final race which will determine the results for the drivers and award points for the championship.
· For the 8 drivers that do not make the third and final race their points will be decided on qualifying times.
1st: 25 points
2nd: 18 points
3rd: 15 points
4th: 12 points
5th: 10 points
6th: 8 points
7th: 6 points
8th: 4 points
9th: 2 points
10th: 1 point
Results – All results from sessions will be posted on the forum dedicated to the LSSRC.
· Qualifying Results for each round
· Race results for each round
· Championship standings
This is where we need help from you guys. We need you to nominate your favourite circuit tracks that we can use for the 16 rounds and then vote on which ones we would like to race at. Here are 2 that I have created, I would like to see them as rounds in the championship, but please have a play and let me know what you think and if you would like to get them included. I also think we should have City Street race at night, dock roads race (Monaco styley) if anyone can replicate or knows of famous tracks that have been created post them here. I will say one thing though, no highway races, we want bends, tight curves hairpins etc, I don’t mind if the start/straights are used on highways but I don’t want to racing around the perimeter of Los Santos, I find it quite boring and not technical (don’t know if anyone else agrees) in another format like death races though it can be fun (gives me a chance to aim lol).

10.Stick to the tarmac! No shortcuts, curb clipping is ok but no driving over verges to get round the corner, follow the road. This will be policed in race, so honesty is needed.
11.Deliberate take outs, excessive ramming, wing clipping, spinning players out, take that shizzle elsewhere cuz we don’t want it! Obviously sometimes accidents are unavoidable but blatant malicious moves will result in a warning which will consist of point deductions. If the behaviour continues in other races then you will be kicked from the championship.
