    After a longer hiatus, the RaceDepartment GT Championship returns with the all popular GT3 class in Assetto Corsa.

    After much preparation in the last few months, RaceDepartment will finally have its own GT3 league in Assetto Corsa. Our staff has been testing and evaluating different options and Sims and we finally decided that Assetto Corsa is currently the best platform to host a GT3 league.

    28 Cars will battle for a highly contested win across 6 different tracks, including the most famous venues around the world recreated at laser-scanned perfection. If you have what it takes to tame those 550+HP beasts producing over 1000Kg of downforce, RD GTC is the place to compete!

    All premium members of any region are eligible to sign up and compete in this series.

    Car ballast
    To ensure a good balance in the racing, we will ballast the cars where and when we feel it is needed to be done. The cars already have a ballast before the league starts to ensure cars are as equal as possible when we start racing.

    Liveries & Numbers
    • Numbers can range from 1-99, all teams must provide a custom livery to enter the championship.
    • The skins must be sent through the Skins Thread.
    • A skin pack will be compiled with all RDGTC S6 liveries.

    • No absences are accepted. Team Manager must find a suitable replacement in case it is needed.
    • This is one of the most important parts of the league briefing you need to understand! When you sign up to the RDGTC, we expect you to be present during all the races. This commitment shows respect to the league, your fellow drivers and the organisation.

    General Rules
    • All rules and regulations will follow the RaceDeparment League Regulations, circa 2015-2016. All drivers and teams must be in compliance with what is stated within the League Regulations, otherwise the entry will not be allowed in our league and the team/driver will be removed from it immediately.
    • Drivers who fail to commit to the series and their team will have their premium membership revoked.
    • All drivers must be Premium Members and are forced to use their real name on the servers.
    • Pitlane will be open throughout the entire race.
    • Usage of Esc+Back To Pits means an automatic DNF from the race. If any incidents happen with cars who returned to the track after using that feature, further action will be taken.
    • Drivers and managers must read all the information provided by the organizers provided through the forum. That includes General threads, race threads and PMs.
    • Teamspeak presence is mandatory for all drivers.

    All drivers must submit the driver incidents within a 48 hour time frame after the race is already finished according to the League Rules. (Accident Video+Description). No report = No action taken.

    Sorry man, you got away games in the night? Maybe you can find a team with more drivers so you can join a few? Remember, it is not the driver but the team who needs to compete in every race with 2 cars.
