You will have a lot of freedom with your Liveries all we ask is you keep it PG, the top two lobbies will be streamed so nothing obscene,
We will Have Number Placards available for you to get. You will be required to place those on each side of the car and one on the right hand side of the rear of the car.
- Official Number Placards are required on both sides of the car and on the back right.
- Decals available by searching GTC or on the PSN profile: GTC_OFFICIAL or HERE
- Sponsor logo for Detailing Group (DG) on both sides of the car and on the hood. Must be approximately the same size as the number placard.
- In your livery’s , make sure to go to driving options and choose a placard then your number, then turn off the placard. This will ensure that your proper driver number shows up when the streamer is watching your car on the stream and hits driver info. Driver info shows stats, car number and car make/model as well as your helmet livery.
Qualifying will be a little different for a lot of you guys, because of the length of the races we have come up with something that works very well.
The beginning qualifier Date TBD when schedule comes out
you will jump in a GT3 room and a GT4 room, running 5 laps in each.
1 out lap, 3 hot laps, 1 cool down lap
You will run this in each room. We will add your fastest lap from each room together and that will determine your placement of Lobby.
For the first Qualifier you will need to Friend.
RWB_Venom for GT3 Qualifier
RWB_Igorski for GT4 Qualifier
2pm to 6pm Eastern Time Zone.
You must complete a hot lap in each lobby to qualify for the series.
This will set you up for your first race.
Fuel and Tire wear will be off for qualifying and RS tires only.
After the initial Qualifier, each race Qualifier will be determined by your fastest lap from the race before.
Example: race 2 Qualifier Order will be determined by your fastest lap from race 1. Race 3 Qualifier will be determined by fastest lap in race 2, and so on and so forth.
If you miss a race and come back for the fallowing race, you will start from the back of the field! If you can’t make a race please let your host know at least 12 hours before lobby opens so we can get a reserve in place.
3 lobbies of 15 each, once those lobbies are full those racers are locked into those lobbies and will not be moved into any of the other lobbies. reserves will be required to do a Qualifier before they can race so we can place them in the correct lobby, if a full time racer misses 2 races without contacting us we will upgrade a reserve to full time.
