Los Santos Touring Car Championship
Starting Wed 31st May 19:30 BST
Welcome to the LSTCC!
(Los Santos Touring Car Championship)
Round 1 will take place Wednesday 31st May @ 19:30 BST (freemode meetup from about 19.15)
Please note the earlier than usual start time, this is to avoid the Wednesday night clash with the XDBX playlist.
I aim to have this wrapped up before 21.00 BST (I can host a random race playlist after for those wanting more)
We will be using Sedan class cars. However the below cars are outlawed due to their superior performance.
- Obey Tailgater
- Benefactor Schafter (all variants)
- Declasse Asea
- Karin Asterope
- Enus Cognoscenti (non armoured)
- Enus Cognoscenti 55 (non armoured)
- Cheval Fugitive
- Benefactor Glendale
- Karin Intruder (no spoiler)
- Declasse Premier
- Albany Primo
- Albany Primo Custom
- Vapid Stanier
- Zirconium Stratum
- Enus Super Diamond
- Vulcar Warrener
- Albany Washington
All the above cars have been tested, and around the same track, they are all within 2 secs of each other. The exception being the Intruder which was a little bit quicker.
It will be allowed though but minus a spoiler, as removing it reduced its lap times to within range of the other cars.
There are a good number of cars to choose from, and not much between them performance wise.
It would be good to see a nice mix of cars, but duplicates will be allowed.
I am aware that there are other Sedan class cars not listed. This is because their performance is so off the pace they wouldn’t be worth racing.
Each round will take place on one track.
Round 1 track will be Circuit Xero.

A typical Touring Car style street circuit. Tight in places, but fast and flowing with some great opportunities for some classic Touring Car style kerb hopping!
We will have a brief free-roam meetup prior to the start to check out each others choice of car and say hello etc.
Qualifying - 5 laps (non contact)
There will be a 5 lap qualifying session, 1 warm up lap, 3 flying laps, 1 cool down lap.
After qualifying, exit to freemode and await playlist invite.
Do not race from the start as we will be adjusting the grid.
Each heat should take approx. 10 mins
Heat 1 – 8 laps (contact)
Grid will be formed based on qualifying results
Heat 2 – 8 laps (contact)
Grid will be formed based on the finishing positions of heat 1
Heat 3 – 8 laps (contact)
Grid will be formed based on the results of heat 2, but with the finishing order reversed.
(last place would be on pole, and so on…)
It is your responsibility to remember your finishing/grid position.
This is to save time so we don’t have to keep checking results screenshots.
This format is loosely based on how the British Touring Car Championship meetings are run.
Points scored as per playlist scores.
Cars maybe fully modded and customised however you like, but no off road tyres .
No kerb boosting. Let me clarify this though, hitting kerbs on the inside and outside of corners on the racing line is ok.
Weaving on and off kerbs down the straights is not. However due to the nature of the tracks we are using I can’t imagine this being an issue.
Race clean at all times. However this is Touring Cars, so a bit of rubbing is to be expected and tolerated to a degree.
But push to pass moves, using the car in front as a brake, pitting, weaving on straights and blatant takeout’s are certainly not ok!
If you do accidentally take someone out you are expected to slow down and let them take their position back.
Most importantly though, don’t be a bell end!
Any questions, just ask in this thread or drop Mythaga or JuniorChubb a pm.
You will also need to drop Mythaga a friend request on PSN to get your invite on the night...
