GT Sports Trophy (Project CARS)

Post by exp1osive sam on Fri 12 Jun 2015 - 15:20

The GT Sports Trophy has been created as a place for both sprint and endurance format racing to take place under one roof. Designed specifically for GT3 spec cars, the GT Sports Trophy runs on Project CARS on the Xbox One and features a wide variety of races across some of the best European tracks that can be offered.

The series has been built around GT3 racing, which is a great platform to built off, with fast, well balanced cars that are able to provide close, wheel-to-wheel action all the time, no matter the length or time of the race. The cars are built for customer teams and drivers, and therefore have a perfect balance of performance to race against all other GT3 cars from other manufacturers, whether a driver be a professional works driver, or a gentleman driver looking to spend his weekend away from the business. This makes the competition ideal for all driver abilities as the cars can cater for all.

The GT Sports Trophy is split into two categories; Sprint, and Endurance. The GT Sports Sprint Trophy is a fast-paced series with shorter races. Each race weekend will consist of several Free Practice sessions which are optional for drivers. A qualifying session will set the grid for the first race, roughly 40 minutes long. Race two will be roughly an hour long and the grid will be set according to the results of the first race. The calendar consists of some exciting tracks in Europe, including Zolder, Imola and Brands Hatch, as well as the daunting and exciting prospect of the series finale at the Azure Coast Challenge, for an exhilarating ride around the streets of the Monaco Grand Prix circuit. Another point of interest will be the Sakitto Sprint, a one-off round outside of the European borders to add an extra element to the series.

The GT Sports Endurance Trophy consists of one race per event, of much longer timings. As well as practice and qualifying sessions, drivers will have to team up in order to conquer three-hour endurance races that will be demanding on both the cars and the drivers. In addition to the three-hour spectaculars, the Nurburgring 1000km will almost double that race length, and the idea of the Spa 24 Hours is still in development and will be looked into in due course, and would most certainly be the jewel in the crown of the series.

Depending on the numbers and varying abilities of drivers that enter, the GT Sports Trophy will implement a driver categorisation scheme where drivers of different abilities compete in different classes to make it easier for everyone. In the GT Sports Endurance Trophy, there will be Pro class on offer for a team of very fast drivers. The Pro-Am class will be for a team with a mixture of abilities, and the Am class will be ideal for the casual racing squad. In GT Sports Sprint Trophy, since each driver races for themselves and no-one else, the classes available will be Overall, Silver Cup and Bronze Trophy, ranking from fastest to slowest drivers. This makes the series suitable for anyone and everyone.

Well because I didn't want to clash with Brtish GT, and the meeting will last nearly 2 hours. I was think more like 4pm for sprint races. Endurance races will likely start at 2pm (for a three hour race). These earlier times are to allow the length of our races to fit around other racing schedules. Hope this is ok for you

So I think sprint races will now start at 7pm BST, on alternating weekends with TORA BGT so it doesn't clash. There will also be midweek practice and quali sessions open to all.

On a different note, I am currently trying to track down someone who signed up with the team name of First Impact Racing in the Audi R8 LMS Ultra. They didn't sign a drivers form, so I have no way of knowing or being able to get in contact with this person. If this was you, could you please contact me. It would be much appreciated. Thank you

So, as well as there being a seat open for the number 19 BMW, Empire Motorsport have a seat open in their RUF RGT-8 GT3. There is also a space for a driver in the #77 Schivelly Racing Mercedes, and I am trying to get one or two drivers in the #17 and #19 Pedace Audi R8 LMS Ultra's.

13 drivers in sprint now. Only 2 spots remain for first lobby. If we get up to 20, I'll open up a second lobby though, do keep the sign-ups coming and we can get two lobbies. Depending on numbers, I'd most likely do one lobby for Overall Class, and the other lobby for Silver Cup drivers.

We now have 18 drivers, and hence have decided a second lobby should be opened, rather than turn down the slowest few qualifiers. There will be one lobby for Overall Class, and one lobby for Silver Cup. These will be our classifications for 2015, with Overall being the fastest drivers, and Silver Cup being a group of slightly slower drivers. Depending on numbers and quality of the field, we will also look to open the Bronze Trophy, for those who really are casual gamers and have no interest in working hard to beat the whole field. We still want at least one Audi, one Ginetta and one Mercedes if possible, but signups in any car are welcome. The Bentley is now closed, as all liveries have been taken, and there is only one McLaren left, (#2 Hexis Racing). There are plenty of entries open still for all six other manufacturers.

I am going to try and Live Stream the races, but a race show will be put onto Youtube after every session, so there will be plenty of media coverage on the series.

In the meantime, the 2015 GT Sports Trophy Pre-Season trailer has been released. Enjoy

The entry list for round 1 at Le Mans Bugatti is looking very tasty indeed. Lots of cars and drivers. In total 23 drivers from 17 teams. 6 different brands represented so far with the recent addition of Ginetta from Ambrose Motorsport. Here is the entry list so far:



Also, first test is tonight at 19:30 BST (about 14:30 US time), for 60 minutes of free testing around Donington Park. Weather forecast suggests mostly clear, with light cloud, and a chance of a light shower towords the end. Anyone interested in joining the series can come along to get a taste for the series, just contact me first. I hope to livestream it, however dodgy internet connection may prevent that. There will be a re-run of the entire session with commentary for those who would be interested.

I'm also on the lookout for a host/commentator to commentate on the second lobby we will be having for the races. As I will be hosting/commentating on lobby 1 (Overall Class), I am looking for someone who can help me with lobby 2 (Silver Cup). Commentary is not vital, the important thing is a lobby host, however, ideally has the ability to spectate and record the race. This way, even if you don't provide commentary, I can do this later if I have time.

Thanks for the interest and support

No. I thought about it but it I wouldn't be able to get everything ready, with practice and quali sessions before the race. Next weekend I am at the British GP, so it will have to be the weekend after. Race at 7pm BST, with practice and quali sessions run through the week. More details will follow closer to the time
