[PS4] GTA Forums Time Trials

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the 2017 GTA Forums Time Trials.


The Time Trials started in 2015 as a Van Society only crew event which I expanded last year to include official crews.


For 2017 we are now open to anyone and any crew. As long as you are a member of GTA Forums you can participate.


The format has changed this year to three seasons as well as the overall championship for the year. You can do as many or as few rounds and seasons as you wish and join in at any time.


We've also switched the deadline to a Sunday evening so that you now get 3 full weekends to get times in.


If you have any queries feel free to post in thread or contact me by PM.


I'd recommend subscribing to the thread as any updates or relevant information will be added here.

PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ ALL OF THE RULES.

KEY POINTS ARE HIGHLIGHTED IN ORANGE BUT EVERYTHING SHOWN IS OF RELEVANCE.


rules02.png

This year the championship will comprise of 3 Seasonal Championships as well as the Overall 2017 Championship which will take into account all 15 rounds.

Season 1: New Year Time Trials : January 16th to 7th May - 5 rounds
Season 2: Summer Time Trials : May 15th to August 27th - 5 rounds
Season 3: Winter Time Trials : September 4th to December 17th - 5 rounds


rules03.png

The points system for the each round in the Seasonal Championships will be as follows:

1st : 100
2nd : 98
3rd : 96
4th : 94
5th : 92
6th : 90
7th : 88
8th : 86
9th : 84
10th : 82

This will continue down to 50th place who will receive 2 points.

Everyone else who submits a time will be awarded 1 point.


rules04.png

Fully modified cars will be allowed unless the event features a vehicle without mods i.e. the Mule. This is because it's simply impossible to ensure people only run certain mods and the only way to make it 100% fair is to make it anything goes.

If a new car is added to the game during an ongoing round it will NOT be allowed until I have confirmed there are no glitches with the vehicle.


rules05.png

You must complete the event on your own so that no advantage can be gained by exploiting the catch up and slipstream mechanics.

It's is only your FASTEST SINGLE LAP TIME which counts, you can run as many or as few laps as you want as your overall time will not be counted.


As part of the Race Club series I intend to run as a separate entity we will sometimes include the Time Trials as part of the night and these times will be added by me automatically.


Discussion of the track, corners and car selection on thread is fine. No revealing of Lap Times is allowed on thread until the results are published.

When submitting your lap please submit using the following format as well as your image:

User: doubleg213
Crew: VANS
Car: Comet
Time: 1.2.345

Laptimes should be submitted to me (doubleg213) by PM before the given deadline for that round.

You can submit as many times as you want, as long as your final submission is in before the deadline.


rules06.png

OVERALL CHAMPIONSHIP

1st place: Roll of Honour, Forum Medal and choice of one make vehicle for 2018.
2nd place: Roll of Honour
3rd place : Roll of Honour

Best Newcomer : Roll of Honour, Forum Medal.
This will include anyone who only contested one round last year.

Most Improved Driver : Roll of Honour, Forum Medal.
This will go to the driver who shows the best improvement on the previous year or a marked improvement as the year progresses.

Hipster of the Year : Roll of Honour, Forum Medal and choice of one make vehicle for 2018.
This will be awarded to the driver who delivers the best result (or results) in a car which flies in the face of all logic when other cars are clearly more competitive.


There may also be some other awards as I see fit during the year.


SEASONAL AWARDS


1st place: Roll of Honour, Forum Medal
2nd place: Roll of Honour
3rd place : Roll of Honour


Prizes are a possibility, but this is largely dependent on what I can beg, steal or borrow from any real world Motorsport events I attend this year. Hopefully it will be less barren than last 2016.




Thank you to Kirsty for sorting out the Forum Medals for 2016.

thanks, but all credit on the time trial series goes out to DoubleG. he's been hosting them for the past months of 2015 in the Van Society itself, and has always done a great job with organising it and making the results and new track info absolutely clear. :)

How is it going to work in terms of which vehicle we can pick? I know it mentions in the rules that in some instances it may be locked to a single car but when that's not the case can we just pick anything we want or will it be locked to a selection from a particular class like compacts for example?

Yes, the vehicle choice will be limited to a particular class. In some cases, we may see similar performing vehicles from more than one class allowed in the same round as well.

My browser crashed while Braulio popped in and ninja'd me.

 

But yes we'll mostly be limited to a specific class.

 

When I post the details for each round it will include details of which class is allowed and if any particular vehicles are excluded, i.e. when we run the Off-Road class the Sanchez will be excluded because it is vastly superior to every other vehicle in the class.

 

My intention is to have more or less every class of vehicle included at least once.

I'll run some of the trials in different cars then just to spice things up ;) Though I'd think I'll just be making a fool of myself if I do that.

 

Hipster award, here I come!

I agree Braulio, sadly we'll now be getting beaten by people from other crews as well.

 

I'm going Turismo R for Supers and Feltzer for Sports so basically throwing away the chance of two rounds straight away.

You can have VS-exclusive awards if you feel like it, similar to last year's TTs. If you need help compiling results, just let me know and I'll help sort them out. Seeing as there's going to be more entries this year, I can only imagine the hassle it could be to compile results and such.

 

I was planning on running the Cheetah for the supers and comparing it whatever time I can achieve with the Osiris, 9F for sports just cause 9F is bae. <3

I'm still going to do VS results.

 

We'll have everyone in overall, but I'll do results for every other crew as well individually so people can fight amonst themselves as well as against the other crews.

If you really want to be a hipster, then go for it.

If I were you, I'd still go for the best cars, this isn't just a race against each other, but we're also racing as a crew ;)

Well Brau, I guess it's up to you to represent VS in the TTs. Do us proud when we're racing hipster cars.

Remember there should be at least three of us with proper times.

You can be a hipster outside the TTs, lol.

OK folks. Details for the first round are now contained in post 2 of this thread.

 

I'll be doing a little tidying up on the first page later with the intention of the first post being an index of sorts but I have an appointment this afternoon which I have to attend to.

That was my intention all along Verstappen :whistle:

 

Or maybe I just hit lucky on that as I completely ignore the R* ones mostly.
