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 (6–12). 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.

 

This month's IROC Series will be raced with The Vulcar Warrener.

 

Vulcar

Vulcar is a Swedish automotive manufacturer in the HD Universe. Vulcar is most likely the GTA analogue of Volvo, as the Vulcar Ingot is noticeably based on the 90's Volvo 850 and V70 wagons. Various other clues hint that Vulcar is based on the Swedish Manufacturer, as in GTA V a random pedestrian can sometimes be heard talking on a cell phone about "How safe Vulcars are", which may be a reference to well-known Volvo safety standards. Its high safety standards are alluded to further on the in-game Southernsanandreassuperautos.com website: "Reputed as the safest car ever made, (...) has been the choice for really terrible drivers for 20 years", which states that its closest counterpart in age is the Volvo 850. The font used in their branding is also similar to that of Volvo. Their name appears to be a play-on of "vulgar" (meaning gross and inappropriate), and "car". This could be another reference to Volvo, as their name is similar to the word "vulva", the outer part of the female genitalia.

 

Warrener

"The legendary Swedish four door sedan. All the boxy design of a 1980s Vulcar, with none of the reliability. For lovers of tight jeans, micro breweries, and 70s cop shows." ―Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.

The Vulcar Warrener is a vintage four-door sedan featured in the I'm Not a Hipster Update for Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

 

Design

 

The Warrener is implied to have a Swedish origin, but it draws most of its traits from the Japanese vehicles. The Warrener is heavily based on the Japanese designs of the Nissan Skyline GTR KGC10, Datsun 510 (Bluebird), and the first year of the Toyota Corolla KE70. The car's front fascia is a heavy mix of those from the Peugeot 504 and Nissan Skyline C10. The chassis brings a mixed resemblance from the Datsun 510 and Volvo 144. The sideview mirror placement has a resemblance of the Toyota Century's.

Performance

 

The Warrener has high acceleration and a good top speed for the class. Its potent 6-cylinder engine has the second-highest torque in the class, just behind the Super Diamond, but unfortunately this results in the car being prone to spinouts, requiring careful driving to maintain traction. Otherwise, the handling is responsive and quick due to the car's light weight and excellent braking. Still, addition of the spoiler mod is recommended to keep the car planted. Crash deformation is poor but the engine can take several direct hits before failing.

Crew Challenge 73b

 

The Compact Killers challenge started yesterday has been postponed until the XDBX site upgrade is finished. That one really needs us to use our own forums to post pictures of the free-roam killer's victims.

 

So in the meantime if anyone wants a challenge, see how fast you can go around Afternoon Typhoon.

Choose either boat, any time of day, traffic off, non-contact, clear weather, fastest lap.

 

Rather than filling up this thread with crew challenge times it may be better to just send me a message here or in-game and I'll post updates with all the times in here.

Each week is a different car, everyone has a different colour to tell people apart. This week all the races are with the Vulcan Warrener, car colour choices have already been posted above. Buy one, mod it and race!

Tonight in Dodge's TNT we are racing stock Warreners. No need to buy/upgrade anything and we will all be driving equal equipment. Skill is another matter entirely. :lol:

The Warrener is a Stock Car race. Don't buy one. You just need to make sure you are using a different color from everyone else. 

 

TNT is a weekly Racing PL. Some weeks you will need a specific Custom Car. First week of every month is the IROC Series. It uses a Stock car for the event. So no purchase is necessary. But every week though out the month will have a Theme.

Hmm, ok. It seems the field is already filled with 12 drivers. If someone can't make it tonight I'll gladly take the spot, just need to know a a couple of hours before hand so I can buy/mod the car and take a look at the tracks as I don't know them.

 

You can let me know through here or PSN message.

 

EDIT: OK, even better if we don't need to spend money :)

I anticipate this thread to go like a rocket once the usual chatter on our site is compressed in here. @grjkie Are you hosting this fridays Open for all playlist or do you need a backup host already? @Fido do w have a month set for the trip already, what did the poll indicate?

It's going to happen, just a case of how long before we hit 100 pages. I'm guessing a week.

May was the preferred month but only by a 1 vote difference.

I think it was :

may : 5 votes

june : 4 votes

july : 4 votes

 

We need more people voting before making a decision. But I guess we'll be on hold for 10 days now.

:lol: Probably. Dodge is only 9112 posts away from 10.000, so I'm sure he's gonna make it a challenge for himself to get there. :p

 

Anyway, not sure if it's old news or not, but apparently Matt LeBlanc will co-host the new season of Top Gear.

I'm thinking last week in April/1st week in May, there is a UK holiday around then which is good for people being able to get time off work but bad as there will also be an increase in travel costs.
