    4.jpg The touring cars are finally back, and for their eleventh season we'll be putting the newly released Aussie Racing Cars through their paces!

    Up to 28 drivers from all over the world will compete in these micro-monsters for 12 rounds of intensely-close racing as only Touring Cars can provide! They may only produce a little over 100 horsepower, but the Aussie Racing Car's are minuscule. They're essentially a driver tightly wrapped in a roll cage with the shell of a Camaro over the top. But underestimate them at your own peril, as these things have a 1300cc motorbike engine in them, and since they weigh in at just under 600kg, the performance these little beasts provide is impressive!

    Whilst this league will be run on an Australian server during Australian-friendly times, all premium members of any region are welcome to sign up and compete in this series. If you wish to sign up, please do so in the Sign Up thread after reading the information below and the info in the Sign up thread.

    3.jpg Use this thread to give advanced notice of your confirmed absences and/or confirm a substitute driver to take you place.

    Absences are permitted provided you notify the league director within 24 hours of the commencement of the Practice session (20:00 AEST), and it is a valid reason. Late notification or invalid reasons for absence will result in a 5 point deduction from your total points accumulation.

    You are allowed to sign up a substitute driver to take your place. Substitutes must have an active Premium Membership and they must be able to drive the car at a competitive pace so as to not present unnecessary danger to other drivers. The substitute driver must use the livery of the driver they're replacing.

    Drivers who withdraw from the league with an inadequate reason, or miss a round without notifying the league director at all, will be removed from the league and banned from all RaceDepartment leagues for the following 6 months. This includes immediate removal from any RaceDepartment league(s) they may be participating in at the same time as the Touring Car Championship.

    When submitting an absence report, please do so with the following format:

    • Round Number(s):
    • Reason:
    • Substitute driver: Yes/No
    • (If "Yes") Name of Substitute Driver: @DriverName

    Sign Ups.jpg This league is open to Premium Members of all regions. You do not need to be an alien to participate, all skill levels are welcome and you will likely find other drivers to battle with. Reserve drivers will be welcomed into events as and when a slot opens.

    Those who are regular attendees to the Australian Automobilista club will take precedence over those who aren't, and you may be placed on the reserve list if a frequent AU club racer signs up with no slots remaining.
