With PCARS finally here and the patch making the game much better in several ways, we are looking at possible events to begin the 2015 season and the rankings chase soon. Standby...

"King of the Road"

Post by GTDon2 on Tue Jun 02, 2015 10:19 pm

Preliminary:  Our intent is to begin offering 2-3 Official events that will be computer rated and applied to the World Rankings.

The 1st event will be titled "King of the Road" using what PCARS refers to as their "Road" car class.  

In order to help address the issue of one driver dominating as is usually the case, the event will have a unique format designed to thwart driver dominance as much as possible.  

There will be 3 cars and 3 tracks at each event for a total of 3 events, or 9 races.  This will only be a 3 week long series.  Each week you will have to run each of the 3 cars selected, at the 3 different tracks.  Each race will be a semi-short sprint race of just 16laps.  There will be a 5min warmup, and a 10min qualifier.  This obviously means that you will run a total of 48 laps at each week's event.

The "twist" in this series is that the third race of the day will be bonused a half point more than the previous 2 races.  This means that you will want to save your best car for the last race.  The "catch" is there will be 3 different tracks.  Chances are very good that not everyone will agree what is their best car for the last track.  It will somewhat depend on which cars you use in the first 2 races too.  You may not like one of the cars for a certain track and pair it to your weakest track performance for example. This will obviously force you to make strategic decisions on which car you will race at each track, knowing that the 3rd race has the most points to win.

In this way we can keep everyone guessing as to what the other guy is going to do, and hopefully help level the playing field a little bit. What will happen is occasionally a fast driver will opt to race his slow car on a track that some will probably pick their faster car.  The faster driver can "afford" to pick a slower car for a certain track knowing he will still do well against faster cars driven by slower drivers.  Thereby saving his best car for the last race and the most points.  This is one strategy among many.  Whatever the case may be, we will see the faster guys in slower cars when the slower guys might be in faster cars.

The first 3 cars are:
1.Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
2.Audi R8 V10 plus
3.Pagani Huayra

The first 3 tracks in order are:
1.Road America
2.Catalunya GP
3.Oschersleben National

Time and dates TBA

======================================


Yes we have decided there will be an "IFCA Trans AM" series.  We are currently looking at a kind of spec series with the one Trans Am car offered.  TBD


======================================

Our 3rd series will be the "IFCA Prototype B Championship"

This will utilize 2 cars for a 6 week contest in which drivers will have to drive each car 3 times.  Whichever car you start the series with you will run for 3 races, and then switch to the other car for the 3 remaining races.  The cars in question appear to be relatively equal depending on the tracks selected, so there will be some strategy involved depending on the track schedule.

The cars are:
1.Palmer Jaguar JP-LM
2.Radical SR3-RS

Schedule TBD

The only night I am off every week is Friday night. My schedule is all over the place all other days and it changes every week. That being said, my vote is Friday night drunk

Right on, that was the tentative day for this series anyway, so cool. I'll see how that strikes the other drivers and get this on the schedule.

Yeah, trying to get the old gang over here. I know we have always had a difficult time slot to race with you, so tell me, what does work for you?
