IROC by Pißwasser
International Race of Champions (IROC) was a North American auto racing competition, promoted as an equivalent of an American All-Star Game or The Masters. Despite its name, the IROC was primarily associated with North American oval-racing culture.
Drivers raced identically-prepared stock cars set up by a single team of mechanics in an effort to make the race purely a test of driver ability. It was run with a small field of invited drivers (612). It was created and developed in 1972 by David Lockton, the developer of the Ontario Motor Speedway, launched in 1973, with Mark Donohue being the first driver to win the championship in 1974. The cars used that year were Porsche Carrera RSRs. Donohue's win in the fourth and last race of that season was his last win, as he died in a Formula One crash at the Österreichring in practice for the 1975 Austrian Grand Prix. The series was not run in 1981, 1982, or 1983.
In 2007, IROC could not find a sponsor and postponed the first two races at Daytona and Texas. IROC went on hiatus in 2007 hoping to return with a sponsor in 2008. In March 2008, IROC auctioned off its tools, equipment, cars, and memorabilia, and went out of business.
Through 2003, IROC was also known for its rainbow of car colors being easily recognized from all other closed wheel racing series. Car numbers were utilized for scoring purposes, but were not the primary means of identification. Instead, the drivers' surname would appear on the door of the car. Exceptions were made when Mario and Michael Andretti raced in the same events. In those cases, their first name was used. The numbers would change from race to race, with the number 1 would be given to the driver starting first, and so on. The colors would correspond to the numbers. Before the races, drivers were assigned via blind drawing, and was how the starting grid for the first race was determined. The finishing order of the race would be inverted for the second race's starting grid, while the reverse of the points standings determined races three and four's grids. Numbers were assigned by the starting position. After the first race, the numbers would be assigned based on points standings. This would make it very confusing for fans, as one week their favorite driver could be driving the blue #1 car, and the next week he could be in the #5 orange car.
Our IROC Series will be a little different. Since Pißwasser has taken over sponsorship of IROC, it will be run on all types of tracks around LS. It will still be run using the same cars, prepped by one group of engineers. There will be no numbers on the cars, but they will be different colors to identify the drivers. Drivers need to select their Car Color. Only one color per car is allowed on the track. Thats how IROC works. You'll know in game if you are using the wrong color. R* has a CLASH warning pop up next to your color when selecting your car for the race. There should be no CLASH warnings on your screen. Also, this is run using Stock cars. So, no need to buy it.
These are the colors: Black - Black Steel - Silver - Red - Sunset Red - Hot Pink - Orange - Bronze - Race Yellow - Racing Green -Bright Green - Blue - Light Blue - Creek Brown - Bright Purple - Ice White - Crew (Blue)
Emperor (Japanese: エンペラー) is a Japanese automobile manufacturer in the HD Universe of Grand Theft Auto, based on Lexus. The logo resembles that of Toyota.
"Every once in a while, a car breaks all the rules. It's cutting edge and timeless. It performs exquisitely on the road and effortlessly on the track. It perfectly embodies both your colossal vanity and your desperate insecurity. More than the sum of its parts, the ETR1 is the only car you will ever need to be able to afford again."
―Legendary Motorsport description.
The Emperor ETR1 is a two-door endurance racing car featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Cunning Stunts update.
The vehicle's general shape and front and rear fascia is primarily based on the Lexus LF LC Vision Gran Turismo. The front fascia is based on the Gazoo Racing Lexus LFA, while the bodywork is based on a modified Toyota 86, namely the R&D Sport Subaru BRZ GT300 with minor styling cues from the Toyota FT-1 Concept. The spoiler, B-pillar and roof shape is similar to the Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3, taking the design of a touring car with a livery and several racing modifications.
Like its rivals, the entire underside of the vehicle is carbon plated. A 5-element diffuser is located at the rear of the body. In the center of the diffuser is a brake light at the bottom of the rear fascia. The vehicle has a large carbon fiber spoiler is placed on the rear of the vehicle. On the sides of the rear profiling are large air-flow exits. The car also has side-exit exhausts. In the interior, there is a twin RPM indicator placed on the steering wheel.
Much like the Drift Tampa, RE-7B, Tyrus, Vagner and Vortex, the ETR1 features the use of racing slicks for the stock rims, as with the previously mentioned vehicles, this has no effect on performance, and is purely cosmetic.
Both liveries have the same sponsors and only differs by the primary one (Kronos or Dense):
Down & Out
Mors Mutual Insurance
The car performs well for its type, surpassing the performance of many other cars in the Supers class. The vehicle has excellent traction thanks to its large spoiler, giving it large amounts of downforce when accelerating, as well as allowing it to retain speed in corners. The vehicle has a lower-revving engine compared to other endurance cars, however it still supplies a large amount of power for its top speed. The engine sounds relatively powerful but certainly isn't as high pitched as the RE-7B or Tyrus. The engine model appears to be similar to that of the Sultan RS', sharing the same valve covers. The model has 3 pipes on each manifold, making it a V6 engine. It bears oil breathers and a fuel injection port to the left of the model. The model also features cold-air pipes from the Rapid GT.
The "Dense" livery for the ETR1 is a reference to the Denso SARD Supra GT livery.
Additionally, the "Kronos" livery is a reference to Petronas Motorsport.
The brand Kronos is likely chosen as livery brand as reference to Kouros Racing, a Swiss racing entrant which was seen in similar styling on the livery of the Sauber C9 in 1987.
If damaged, the ETR1's stock spoiler may detatch from the car. However, a "No Spoiler" option can be applied in Los Santos Customs by removing the spoiler.
This has since been fixed in the GTA Online: Bikers patch.
According to the internal name, it was originally named as "SHEAVA" but was soon changed to ETR1 prior to its release.
The ETR1 is the first vehicle to be based on a Vision Gran Turismo vehicle; another Vision Gran Turismo-based vehicle is the Nero Custom
