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. League Format Cars Available Cars will be balanced out based on performance using ballast to ensure a fair competition.
