    Have we finally got an alternative to iRacing scoring system for MP racing?
    Maybe because this looks very promising and professional:

    Well, there's only very little there to see, right?

    I registered, because why not?
    But "Race" doesn't do anything and ya, basically very little happening there for now?

    Agreed it is sparse right now but will be interesting to monitor, hence the heads up on here.

    I wonder how this actually works :)

    They are testing this weekend and already some race results are up. Semms like they had 2 GSCE races with 5 participants? Haven't had the chance to join a race myself, but will try to make it later today, will report :)

    Looks like a interesting idea. I think Reiza should try to collaborate with them, it would be beneficial for both parties.

    I still hope Reiza will focus heavily on MP for their upcoming title. Having leaderboards, promoted clean racing, automatic championships/seasons and a strong online community would really set them apart.

    I am really and deeply surprised ...

    * 5 minutes prior to race start the "join" button became available.
    * 3 minutes prior to the race the client reacted and launched GSCE (after a security window demanded to allow access to an application address)
    * Have been put in a short practice session
    * Private qualifying started (2 laps)
    * Race started (Just 2 participants, but regarding the Beta state and the small community i didn't even expect to race with somebody)
    * After the race ended i quit GSCE
    * SimRacingSystem window closed a few seconds later
    * Race results + standings were already online on the website

    This is astonishing.
    The standings also show some incidents being recorded.
    Don't know how they are registered, tho.

    maybe we should ask @Matt Orr to have a look and make a video to spread the rumor :)
    It appears that he's very influential (VIR;))

    They have 5 week testing at the moment, rf2 works too..
    It's not highly populated but it takes time, it looks like a great idea.
