What is the GTTCC?
The GTTCC is an organised racing series that is based on the official WTCC and BTCC and other Touring car series. The series uses cars that you would use for work or socialising, but slightly modified. All cars that compete must have 4 doors with a 2.0 litre engine or under.

Race Rules
Qualifying will be a 10 minute session, where you will be allowed to set your best lap, this will be followed by race 1 which will be roughly a 20 minute race. You are required to make a mandatory pit during the race in a pit window, which will be announced before the race.
After race 1 is the Super-Pole. All drivers will start in the pits, they will then drive out on their out lap. After the Out lap, everyone will only be allowed one flying lap to complete their fastest lap and determine the grid for Race 2. If a driver completes an extra lap they will receive a penalty for race 2 and a reprimand.
Race 2 will be the same as Race 1, the starting grid will be based on the Super-Pole results
Race 3 will be a 10 minute sprint, no pit stop is required. The grid will be based on Reverse results from Race 2. The object of this race is to give drivers who would finish at the back of the grid an opportunity to win and should provide some exciting racing.

Regulations
All cars must meet their Correct Specifications. All cars must run with Sports Soft tyres.
Wings are allowed to be fitted, however Aero Kits, flat floors and other Aero parts are banned. Any drivers found to be using these (we will check) will be disqualified and handed a reprimand.

Other Notes
  • If a driver has an incident they wish to report. They must send a message to myself or another steward mikey_2412, NinjitsuEvolved, smith1001. The Stewards panel will then review the incident and come to a decision. Drivers may be handed a reprimand, penalty, or anything else the stewards see fit to give.
  • You will be allowed 24hours then to appeal the decision. Any appeals after this time will not be re-investigated.
    • If you recieve the following number of Reprimand on your licence, you will receive the following penalties;
    • 3 Reprimands - 5 Place Grid Penalty at the next Race
    • 5 Reprimands - Drive through Penalty at the next Race
    • 6 Reprimands - 10 point Championship Reduction
    • 8 Reprimands - Drive through penalty at the next Race
    • 9 Reprimands - Race Ban
    • 10 Reprimands - Drive through penalty at the next Race
    • 12 Reprimands - Series Ban
  • Drivers may be penalized for both on and off track behaviour.
  • 2 wheels are to be kept inside the white lines at all times, if you happen to cut a corner, lift off so no advantage is gained.
  • Dive-bombing is not acceptable. If you are following a driver, you can not force your way into that gap. The half a car's length rule will apply. Anything else will be investigated. 'You left a gap' is not a valid excuse.
  • Teams may be allowed up to 3 drivers, but only 2 of the drivers scores will be counted per round. Team-mates can use different cars must run the same colour cars.
  • Driver's must run with the correct numbers on, if they wish to change they must do so prior to the race. Any driver found not running the number will receive a warning. 2 warnings = 1 reprimand.
All rules are there for a reason, drivers, including the host, do not receive special credit. Please read all rules before signing up. 'I was not aware of that rule' is not a valid excuse. By signing up you agree to all the rules.

The GTTCC is a series set up by a group of guys who enjoy racing, socializing and having fun. We like to get every driver involved and feel welcome. Any questions or suggestions, feel free to ask or say. Best of luck and have fun. :tup: :cheers:
