GT Sport / GTSport Pros vs Cons
« on: April 19, 2018, 12:53:28 PM »
Hi All,

Now that we have been running a few races using GTSport, and have some good idea of how it works, maybe it would be a good idea to leave your personal views on the game. Maybe a few pros and cons to make for some good discussions?

Announcements / Response To Caddys Outburst
« on: April 09, 2018, 10:17:09 AM »
Dear CR Members,

This is my response to the most recent events regarding Caddy’s outburst:

I will publicly accept Caddy’s apology. We will move on from this as we always do. However, I would like to just say the following:

All this may seem like a petty little power struggle between two individuals, but it is not in any way like this at all. We are a solid community that have been racing online for plenty years together. We as the admin for this forum try very hard to up hold a very high level of respect between all of us. We are, as you all aware, a very competitive bunch and we all have a very high level of online racing skills. We strive to grow our forums membership base and would like to be known as the place to go for an enjoyable online experience with very well-organized events. We also have no way of controlling the challenges certain games pose to us, like inadequate online features and incomplete functions, as well as bugs and flaws within the games. We can only do so much. Race nights are also all about time. There must be a cut off at some stage where hosts need to make a call on weather to continue or not. To host a race night comes with a very high level of pressured responsibility, and don’t forget the host still needs to race as well, so please think of what this takes. This is the reason why very few members put their hands up to host and we do certainly appreciate those that do.

Now when outbursts like this happens it damages our reputation, and after a lot of work that gets put into running a series, I don’t believe anyone has the right to go out and publicly post their overrated and frustrated views, and especially how they think they can do a better job, when they never have. There are so few that are willing to run a series, and this is the reason why they do not. Who would dare to try run a series now after such hurtful and ridiculous incidents like this occurs. No one here is bigger than our community, no one here is higher than anyone, no team is higher than another, regardless of age, size, colour, amount of posts etc. I am certainly not, I along with the admin team will do anything for this community and try our very best to keep everyone very excited to be part of it. I don’t look for recognition for anything at all and I am certainly not power hungry.

Frustrations boil over, we all get it. But I urge members to think before you post. Posts like this can really put a huge amount of damage on us. Swearing and calling names is highly forbidden. It ultimately can cause a ban on a member. Please respect our forum rules, they there for a reason no matter how long and drawn out they are.

Another thing:

There are members here that have a huge amount of “real” racing experience, we all know of one such member who has been very successful, I rate their views extremely high, this is not to favor anyone or any team, it just makes total sense to use their experience and adopt their very sensible views into our racing.

On closing, as the so-called forum owner, I still battle with that title, because I believe we are all here together on this, I respect all of you, I certainly thank you all for making our community what it is. There has been a little method behind my madness here, I have tried to make a point on the above to show we don’t tolerate this behavior. Let’s move on and race.

Regards
Ty

Group N / Group N Seeding Event
« on: March 19, 2018, 08:33:30 AM »


Welcome to all Group N drivers,

Firstly I would like to thank all of you for entering, I am sure this series will produce fantastic close racing. This thread is all about our up coming seeding event. The following information will be specific to the seeding only.

Host:
driverone0one

Date:
22 March

Car:
N300 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 Track "13

Tyres:
Racing Hards

Track:
Track will only be known once the seeding starts

Format:
15min Quali run

Wear rate:
Fuel & Tyres x2

Please note:
All drivers will be allocated a time in which to join the host room. Once everyone has entered the room we will start a 15 min Qualifying run. In this time you must try and produce your fasted lap possible. You may pit as many times as you like during the 15 minutes. Your fasted time will determine which pool you will start in for race one. Please be on time, missing the seeding event and not producing a time will unfortunately slot you in the lowest pool for race one.

Also remember:
Points will be allocated to the top 3 times per teams and privateers. These points will not be included in the actual series overall championship points. The points scored in this seeding event will determine the car allocations for race one. Slowest chooses first, and so on. Once a car has been chosen it may not be used by another team or privateer. This will happen every race, determined by points.

If you have any questions or if anything is unclear, please post.

GT Sport / Race Calendar 2018
« on: February 28, 2018, 10:31:02 AM »
Hi Guys

This is not 100% confirmed, just what I have been working on, still need to fine tune it regarding holidays etc

This is the idea for 2018

After the 6X6 Championship we have room for another 5 championships. Each championship will consist of 5 rounds, running every Thursday night. I have allocated six weeks per champs to include a seeding event.

After each Champs we will run a WEC event, this event will consist of a quali night (Thursday) and then the race will be held on the Monday, these races will be +/- 2hrs long. You will need to qualify to compete in the WEC, this I will explain later as I still need to finalize the concept. This I am hoping will include a title sponsor with allocated prizes.

For after 6X6, I need to still work on the format for the next champs which will be based on a Group N style racing. Details will be posted when complete. After that, the next will be announced and so on.

Its going to be difficult to please all regarding times and days, please share your thoughts before anything is finalized.

Thanks
