+1 for a truck race.

And the trucks are brilliant fun around Watkins Glen (not the bootleg)

Keep the ideas coming, Gordon have discussed about the next championship being a mix of ovals and circuits.

If you want to run a mix between oval and road, Indycar sounds like the perfect thing, and the old Indycar is free.

From my experience, the stock cars aren't all that enjoyable on road courses other then the fact they are a massive iR farm because oval people can't turn right. I think the Indycar would be more enjoyable for the simple fact that it is more enjoyable to drive, as well as race.

Just thought about this too, if you are going to run the Nationwide Chevy, you can add the Ford Mustang, Chevy Camaro, and Toyota Camry xFinity cars. They are all the exact same car, just a different body. People that don't have the content can run the Chevy Impala, people like me that do, can run something else.

The stock cars are tons of fun on road courses. They need to be handled very gently.
If the schedule does fit into my own personal schedule, I will run a championship for sure. Smile

Guys, just so you are in the loop, I was planning creating a GT series based on 2 hour sessions similar to Blancapin series but this new Formula Renault 2.0 has really grabbed my attention. Its a great car to drive, even on default set up. Which would you rather, 2 hours of GT in closed lobbies or 2 x 30 minute races in the Formula Renault 2.0 This will run alongside the series Chaddy is going to be running on a Tuesday night. So iRacing content on TORA will be on 2 days a week if all goes well.

Instead of doing a 2hr GT3 race, maybe 1 hr race with a forced pit stop (can be done with fuel limits similar to the official series). I wouldn't mind either though. That Formula Renault series is a ton of fun to drive.
Thought I would also add, maybe this series can run more paid tracks? We are really missing out on some great circuits due to us only running a very few paid circuits.

The GT or FR2.0 will be all paid tracks I believe.

Correct, Chaddy.  As we are running an all free series on Tuesday nights, this series is an all paid series to balance things out and some great venues are to be used. My first thought was a 10 week series so 10 paid tracks are in play

For sake of getting big grids, I would think GT3 might be the best for the first season, seeing as 99% of people on iRacing run it

That's also the biggest issue, why would people want to participate in the TORA league instead of the official Sprint or Endurance series, the 2K GT series or the SRA GT3 series all of which are broadcast live. I would suggest something accessible and unique like a road series with the free Legend or Impalas and to advertise TORA though the iRacing forum.

Nothing yet, i did suggest that, then a second sugestion came in. I may run it as a side series to the GT3.

What night could/would everyone race the Legends on Road?

the only huge downer for the US guys on running GT3 with y'all is the day/time it's currently on.


What's stopping me (besides the job situation) from running possible on Saturdays is that there's a Euro v8 series I'm looking hard at running in down the road.

Thursdays and Sundays are out for the guys that normally run the Kias.

Fridays could work if the time is moved back to say.... 2200 BST....ish.

I'd be willing to have a later series if a weekend day was used. Might suit everyone better really.

Baby Steps though. If the hosted sessions are left open after those that normally run with the site are in-lobby, then the interest can build by word of mouth as well as any advertising that can be done.

it wouldnt even need to be done by racespot tv if tora actual had a dedicated media team you can stream your own exactly like racespot do if you know what your doing..

but then why limit it to just iracing to live stream on every game/sim racer practically has a spectator mode and if it came to it and tora needed to buy air time im sure the whole community would donate...

also why leave it at just iracing and forza there are plenty of games/sim racers out dont just limit it to the pc users only get iracing on tora every console game you can get for the pc.. tora need to broaden the horizons and move with the times... i know this site started out just for xbox users but its falling behind and many other top sim racing sites cater for all the community not just the console users..
the pc community is probably the biggest gaming community out and tora are not taking the advantage of this as i said they need to move with the times...

that is just my opinion and im in no way picking any verbal fights with anyone...

sorry i used your reply CQR Myles lol just yours got me thinking lol
