[PS4] GTA V Time Trials

Recommended Posts

rd14.jpg

Quieter round than I expected as it's typically been a popular track whenever anyone has a run at it.

 

Ally continued his return to form taking in 1st place half a second faster than anyone else. 2nd to 5th was tightly fought with less than a tenth of a second between everyone, a tiny change in braking and looking at those times those places could have gone either way very easily.

 

As it worked out it finished with myself in 2nd and Verstappen back on the podium after a short break.

 

Full results HERE.

 

The yearly championship is all sorted, but the Winter season is still wideopen with Ally and Clydicality separated by two points.

 

Depending on how it pans out we may even have to go for the tie break on this one.

 

Crew vs Crew is updated on page one, not much to report there as it's the same old story as usual.

 

Round 15 will be up later on today or early tomorrow, Stinger GT this time around (blame Fido) so if you don't have one you'll need to get purchasing. I'll be running a Race Club featuring them on either the 15th or 16th so you can get your money's worth out of it.

 

It's a really nice car anyway, so you really should have one anyway if you have any taste.

Thanks as ever for all the hard work G

You just can't keep the Peoples Champ down... trust me I know I have been kicking him for years and he doesn't even flinch. :lol:

 

Well done Ally.

 

Pretty pleased with the result, a little more effort might have seen me gain a position but that is irrelevent as I beat Trashbags :panic: Its been a while Trash and it feels good. ;)

 

Looking forward to the Stinger round, and to the return of Fido.

 

Thanks G, nice track and great job on the results as ever.

All of my outstanding college work is done now, bar one which is ridiculously easy so I don't have to panic over it.

 

I'll sort out the new round early on tomorrow once I've sorted out the stuff I have to send out and then I'll be back on it.

 

No new assignments until the week before Christmas so I have a couple of weeks with a bit less pressure which means I'll get the first few rounds for next year ready to go so we are out of the gates with the slightly revised format (which I'll reveal in the next week or so) on the 1st of January and shouldn't have any of the stop/start situation which has occurred this year.

Well then here we go, final round of 2017.

 

Although Ally is all but confirmed as the 2018 champion it's still all to play for to end the season with 2 points between him and Clyd it may even go down to a tie breaker (unless we do some kind of "let motorsport be the winner" nonsense.

 

This round is for the Stinger GT and I'll also be running something on Race Club for these cars as well so you can get your money's worth, details on that in the week. Plus I was intending to do a

 

Deadline is 24th December, but obviously take into account that we will be getting snow which may or may not affect your lap times slightly.

 

We also should hopefully have a wild card element for this round as the 2016 Champion has been persuaded (well, threatened by Ally Crawford) to put in an appearance as the car selection was his choice as champion last year.

 

We shall see whether all his time on Zelda has dampened his abilities to put in freaky lap times.

 

 

 

Track choice was on the basis he wanted something fast, urban and technical. Which I think it certainly is.

 

Plus as I have format changes planned for next year it seemed fitting. Paleto GT was the first track I ran for the initial Van Society time trials run back in 2015 so it seems a good choice to end the old format.

 

It's also an old PS3 track, so lots of things at the side of the road to it, much like the tracks the 250 would have raced on in period, being a car from the era when death was considered perfectly normal in racing.

OTHER NOTES

 

As well as the planned Stinger event details, next week I'll also post some details for next year as the goal is actually to start straight away on the 1st of January.

 

Rounds 1 to 4 are pretty much all planned and should be made and ready to go by the end of the next week or so, I want to avoid the interruptions I've had this year as I find it as frustrating as you guys probably do, in fact probably more so.

 

Plus I will be requesting some suggestions and feedback so we can try and keep the variety up as much as possible.

Are we allowed to use a stock Stinger for this at all? Sadly a stock Stinger GT doesn't seem to be among the selection of stock vehicles. I know a stock Stinger would set a poor time compared to anyone using a fully upgraded Stinger GT but I guess coming last would still be points on the board if we are allowed to use one. I'm a bit reluctant to spend the money on a new Stinger GT as I spent about 20 million recently buying vehicles for the transform races and with this weeks heist dlc as well and the new vehicles that this has brought it is an expensive time.

I guess the Stock Stinger is not available to pick as in some classes R*omits a few of the slower cars. :(

 

G will probably pop into Creator to compmfirm this.

If you want to run with less power you are more than welcome, I'll double check the options for the race and republish if it's blocked. I'm sure the race is new enough that it shouldn't be a car I've not allowed on it. Whenever R* update the cars you need to manually add the stock ones in, fairly sure the Stinger was in game before I made the original though.

 

I've always gone for the fully modded thing purely because it would be impossible to police whether people are running modified cars or not and enforce stock cars.

Just checked it, not an option to allow the Stinger GT as a stock version.

 

One of the many little R* creator foibles we encounter.

 

If you want to run the stock Stinger so you can enter, you're more than welcome Mr. Newt.

Quick reminder that it is deadline this Sunday (Christmas Eve).

 

If you don't have a lap in remember that it's possible we may have snow which will significantly slow you down so if you don't have a time set then you probably want to get at it before then!

 

Also, the Stinger GT will be usable this Saturday evening, here: http://gtaforums.com/topic/884868-ps4-race-club/

 

If you don't have one we will be running the races in GTA mode so can spawn you one in if you need it. We will run the Time Trials track during the night so you will also have an opportunity to have a lap included from that as well.

 

Time Trials entrants are also more than welcome to attend the Christmas Eve Van Society event we have planned, just for some chilled out snow racing, nothing too elaborate or fancy and a general relaxed night which you can read about here: http://gtaforums.com/topic/840961-the-van-society-weekly-events/

Pretty sure you can turn the snow off to race G....

Having spoken to a few people the snow appears to have caught quite a few people out.

 

With that in mind I'll happily extend the deadline for this round so that people get a chance to run in the dry.

 

Obviously this all works on the presumption that R* follow their previous form and turn off the snow between Christmas and New Year.

 

As we don't know what dates that will occur for certain (if it does actually occur of course) I'll leave it open ended for now with the basic intention of "the deadline is when the snow comes back".

Hello chaps.

 

I've been pretty much wiped out for a week with a virus which has given me a serious kicking.

 

Still a bit feverish, sore and tired as well as very dizzy which is unpleasant to say the least, but I'm vaguely able to function now so I'm going to crack on and try to get stuff sorted out today and tomorrow.

 

The intention would be to launch round 1 of 2018 on Monday (I had intended to be out of the gate on the 1st had I not been ill).

 

If anyone has messed up and not gotten a time in yet you have till close of play tonight to do so as I see a couple of the regular suspects haven't put anything in yet.

 

Been a bit of a disorganised and disjointed year so looking forward to getting everything finished and starting anew for the new championship.

Finally managed to get myself sorted and online enough to do the final results.

 

I've updated the Archived Results post on page one to include every result of the year, the tables for each season and the overall championship as well as the Crew vs Crew results as well.

 

rd15.jpg

Lann got the final victory of the year with Clydicality the only driver even remotely near to him.

 

Crawford completed the podium spots handing the title of Winter Champion to Clydicality while bagging himself the overall championship.

 

Bit of a problematic round with the snow catching a few people out even though we knew it was coming, but in the festive spirit the extended deadline means a few people managed to still get sorted.

 

Special recognition for PondNewt who set a very respectable time despite running a Stock car.

 

Domestic Battery take both the seasonal Crew vs Crew and the Overall title for the year.

 

Final award winners for the year to follow in my next post.

New Year Seasonal Champion: Fido_le_muet

 

Summer Seasonal Champion: Crawford1872

 

Winter Seasonal Champion: Clyicality

 

Crew vs Crew Champions (clean sweep of every season and the overall): Domestic Battery

 

 

 

 

Special Awards:

 

Hipster of the Year: Ermac again, for his stalwart use of the Rhapsody and the Coquette Classic in the early rounds before we parted company with the PC guys.

 

Best Newcomer: XSImpulse, who got there with a a string of solid and consistent performances throughout the year.

 

Most Improved Driver: This was a tough one this year, Clydicality had a very good chance of taking it as he improved steadily throughout the year to ultimately become bvery competitive but this year it goes to Trashbags for his steady route towards the fringes of the podium places on some rounds.

Well done guys :)

 

Great result Lan, I have now idea how you and Clyd broke the 1:05 barrier.

 

Congrats to Fido, Ally and CLyd for the seasonal wins.

 

The Hipster winner always deserves a shout too, well done Ermac.

 

Congrats to XSImpulse for getting the best newcomer.

 

A special well done for the one and only Trashbags for picking up most improved driver, well deserved mate :)

 

Then on to the big ones, the Peoples Champion strikes again well done Ally a great win mate, I still don't believe all that crap you spout about being hopeless at racing 2 years ago :lol:

 

Well done to Domestic Battery too, another clean sweep, even with access to your secret video database I still couldn't keep up.

 

After all of that a big big thank you to our Northern friend who has had a runny nose for the last 2 weeks DoubleG. I know the time and effort that goes into this is immense, thanks mate :)

GG guys, well driven! Seems like everyone couldn't really get the lap down perfect. Such a tricky track to do perfect laps on, especially in the Stinger GT.
