BROUGHT TO YOU BY DOUBLE G MOTORSPORT

The intention of this thread is to try and get a (semi) regular series of racing events running which will be open to any GTA Forums members, with the exception of the small selection of names I have of people who've ended up in races with me who've spent the entire time ramming people.

 

Hopefully we shall run bi-weekly initially and from that I would like to expand to some longer term racing series and maybe add some other single nights as well.

Racing Rules


I will enhance this with images etc. as we go.


Driving Standards will be enforced and expected of people. Most of this is common sense and stating the obvious, but it seems to go unheeded every time we run an event.


1: First corner. We do not need a mass pileup every time as always seem to happen. 16 into 1 doesn't go, everyone should get through.


2: No Pit Manoeuvres.


3: If the car in front of you is sideways and you cannot drive around it then DO NOT tap them.


4: Using the car in front of you as a brake is not acceptable.


5: No weaving to stay ahead on straights, racing etiquette is that you are allowed one manoeuvre.


6: If there is a massive pile up ahead of you don't go steaming into it and make it worse.


7: If you have left the track, do not rejoin unless there is room to do so, yes we all want to be back on the track and ready to go asap. But you should not do this at the expense of another racer.


8: If you lost control entirely, try to use the handbrake to stop the car rather than L2. This means the car will stop rather than stop and suddenly reverse.


Unless it's a blatant attempt at one of these you will be warned first time, second time you are kicked and banned from next weekends events and you will not be allowed to participate in any racing events until you've spent some time proving you can behave and race correctly in sessions with some of the Partners and Senior Partners.


Despite all of that it's inevitable that sometimes we will have some incidents which are unintentional. If you spin someone out or push them off the track and have basically gained a place on them through nefarious deeds then you should allow them to regain their place by leaving some room and slowing enough for them to regain the place.


If someone makes an overtaking move on the inside of you and they are more than half way alongside your car as you go to turn into the corner you must give them room on the inside. You cannot simply turn into them anyway. Conversely if you're not far enough up the inside of someone when attempting to overtake you should back out of the move as they are within their rights to turn into the corner and any resulting crash will be your fault.


IF YOU ARE UNSURE ABOUT ANY OF THE ABOVE FEEL FREE TO PM ME AND I WILL EITHER JOIN YOU ONLINE TO GIVE YOU EXAMPLES OR TRY TO EXPLAIN IT BY PM.


Also this should give you an idea of what I am saying







TLDR: If you behave like an idiot in the pre race lobby, you will either be kicked or not invited and if you spend your entire time ramming people in the races you will be gone.

The format will be 3 races hopefully running around 20 minutes each, each race will be proceeded by a qualifying session.

 

All Sports Classic vehicles are allowed except the Infernus and Turismo Classic variants, don't worry they will get their own events soon enough.

 

Stirling GT if used must have NO SPARE WHEEL FITTED this way the class at least has a small element of variety to it because the other cars can at least compete once that traction bonus is gone.

 

You can sign up in teams of two if you would like to but this is entirely optional.

 

MEETUP

 

We shall meet up at the Devin Weston Hanger at LSIA initially in an invite only lobby.

 

There is one basic rule at this stage, don't be a bell end. No cops, no blowing each other up etc.

 

The lobby will be available from 7pm UK Time and we will launch the first qualifying at 7:15. If you miss qualifying you can join in the full race but starting from the back of the grid.

 

QUALIFYING

 

Qualifying will be a 3 lap race, we will take one sighting lap, then racers must wait at the start, then we'll do a single flying lap setting off at 20 second intervals to determine the fastest lap. Before a slow cruise home.

 

I like to run qualifying on the basis that I just run the 3 laps straight off myself so I can keep track of laptimes easier while everyone finishes the 3rd lap. This also means people can bet on that result and earn some cash if they wish to do so.

 

RACE STARTS

 

To start the actual race we will form up the grid in the order from the qualifying and I will lead a procession lap, I will pull over approaching the end of the lap and the race will being when the message "XXXX has entered first" pops up in game.

 

I will race each race starting from the back and won't be racing as such.

 

AFTER RACING

 

Once the main racing is done I will have a small playlist with a mixture of races, maybe some silly races and some custom created jobs for those who want to hang around.

 

OTHER STUFF

 

Please add my PSN account doubleg213VANS when you sign up, if I don't have you added I can't invite you, the onus is on you to add me not the other way around.

 

If we run tight on time after races 1 and 2 we will run the 3rd race in order based on who is leading the series.

 

 

ANY QUESTIONS OR QUERIES PLEASE ASK IN HERE.

This looks interesting, I'll join as an independent team to see what it's like.

This looks interesting, I'll join as an independent team to see what it's like.

 

 

 

If it runs like my crew events it will probably start out quite well, at some point I'll shout a lot and kick someone then it will settle down.

 

I've not run an event for ages, but I'm hoping to get back out and about and doing some actual real world events this year so weekends may end up tricky (assuming I actually pull my finger out and get the car built) so I figured Fridays are a starting point and should mostly be free.

 

It might have been easier to go with a basic 10 race playlist or something but I figured I would try something a bit more structured and go from there. All going well I'll try and run some longer term stuff.

 

The plan is also to try and tie some of the events in with the Time Trials so for instance when everyone has to buy a Stinger as that was Fido's selection of a car for a round as Champion I'll run a racing event around that car as well so if people do have to purchase a car they will get their money's worth out of it.

 

Planning on bi-weekly to start and then if we can get numbers and have a decent amount of regulars I'll look to expand.

 

Mainly in terms of longer running stuff I'd like to do a proper Trophy Truck championship, multiple rounds over a few months including a mixture of off road and some circuit stuff based on this kind of idea.

 

 

I also want to do a DTM style event but focusing on everyone in Schafter V12s.

 

 

The worst part is likely to be the first qualifying and first grid set up / rolling start. One can but try.

How are you planning to communicate? Just through the game's voice chat?

I have a mic, but it's broken, so if I do make it I won't be able to talk :/

Just through voice chat as once you get over 8 players you can't have a party.

 

I'll setup a group text chat as well just in case.

 

As long as you can hear you should be fine.

I was gonna say, nice to see the Z-type making an appearance.

 

I considered it but was not confident the host was gonna provide the variety of tracks that will let the Z-type shine ;)

There will definitely be a case to be had for the Z-Type especially with the traction loss because the Stirling is not allowed to use the spare wheel.

I could've signed up with one of my Roosevelts or Tornados but I figured that would not be fun racing if the others are in way faster vehicles so yanno...

 

Stinger GT and Stange would not fill the bill either. :(

I suspected you may go Stinger.

I've set up a chat on PSN already for tonight, I've invited everyone I had on my friends list and I am just missing Carlitos Brown at this stage.

 

Remember I am using the PSN account doubleg213VANS tonight.

 

If you're a reserve and arrive late just send me a message and I'll add you when we finish the session we are in, obviously if it's a race you may have a wait before we can invite.

 

 

A couple of notes on the tracks for those who are looking at car selection, based on previous Historic events we've run I think/hope we should have a situation where the higher traction cars will excel on the first track, the higher speed cars will excel on the second and on the 3rd different sections of the track will suit different cars. Yes I know you've heard this all before on the Time Trials thread but we do have a little bit more experience with this calss.

 

Also remember Stirling GT should have no spare wheel when I've run Historic stuff in the past using this rule we've found that for instance the Pigalle, Stirling and Z-Type all actually end up a lot closer matched on quite a variety of tracks.

Nice choice Fido, if it was a bit quicker and I was a bit quicker I would have defo considered picking it too. I would have added your car choice last night but I was getting lost in Rogue One.

 

Also DubG, Trashy will be signing up at some point, once he manages to find you thread ;)
