MSA National Motorsport Week. 25th - 5th July

Post by Richy59 on Sun 19 Jun 2011 - 11:55

With National Motorsport Week comes another great opportunity to get involved with racing at all levels and all disciplines.
TORA has the unique position of being able to champion sim racing as a viable form of driver training and grass-roots motorsport
in its own right.

TORA has set up a special week of sim racing encompassing a number of racing disciplines in the build up to it's blue riband event, the Le Mans 2.4hrs which takes place on 3rd July.

First up is the European GP at Valencia as part of TORA's Grand Prix World Championship. The series' second visit to a street circuit ought to prove explosive if the action at Monaco is anything to go by!

The first of the special events takes place on Monday 27th June with a SEAT Supercup event at Catalunya on Forza Motorsport 3.
This is essentially a revival of the excellent series run back in 2009, close racing and big grids are anticipated.

Tuesday 28th June sees Rounds 7-8 of the GT1 Championship on Shift 2 Unleased for XBox 360. The mighty GT1 cars will do battle around the Silverstone Arena Circuit. Who will come out on top? Will the Lamborghinis rule the roost once more or can the other teams fight back?

Wednesday sees a special event celebrating the successes of TORA's tame racing driver, Ash Sutton. A Ford Fiesta Cup will take place at Silverstone's National Circuit on Forza Motorsport 3. Additionally, Wednesday will see the first qualifying day for the Le Mans 2.4hrs. All participants in the 2.4hrs need only to participate in ONE qualifying session so there are plenty of chances to participate in the special events too!

Thursday has a very Italian feel with a special Ferrari 458 Challenge taking place at Mugello also on Forza 3.
The 458 represents a massive improvement in every way on the 430 predecessor, the cars in race trim are proving to be highly competitive on the GT scene so a field of them ought to be an impressive sight!

The TORA Classic on Friday see's Shift 2 Unleashed come into its own with a multiclass race in classic GT and touring cars around the challenging Spa circuit.

Interested in prototypes? Then Saturday's Radical Challenge at Suzuka using Forza 3 is the one for you! A one make special in the potent SR3 prototype promises fast, close racing around one of the world's greatest circuits.

Sunday plays host to TORA's blue riband event, the second running of the Le Mans 2.4hrs. After the impressive entry for the race in 2010, and the close finish, who would be brave to place bets for this year's event? With a mixture of new winners
in the European leg of the International Sports Car Championship this really is an incredibly open race in all classes.

The final special event will take place on Tuesday 5th July, a rally-fest using Codemasters new DiRT3 game for XBox.
Whether it's flying through the woods at ridiculous speeds or precision driving in a gymkhana session, this wiil be the night to show off your car control.
