Rules (EVERY COMPETITOR MUST READ THESE, especially 1c)

1 - General Rules
a) The GPTCC is an AI championship where the game races for you! Races will be simulated using Grand Prix 4, by myself every thursday. YOU DO NOT NEED TO OWN GP4 TO COMPETE HERE!

- If you're interested in joining the series please post it in the thread. What I need from you is:
Driver name (can be fictional, you don't have to use your real name)
Nationality
Driver number (make sure it's not used! Look in the money tables to see which numbers are free)
Prefered Team (where you'd like to drive. The team needs to have an empty place though. If you want to start a new team, which you are only allowed if there is a team slot left, I need your team name again, aswell as team nationality. There are no team managers, so you have to drive for it.)
Sponsors (for both qualifying and race)
OPTIONAL: Team livery (can use the default one from the DTM 2005-06 mods); driver helmet.

If there is a spot available you'll be added the series at the start of the following race weekend, if not you'll be added to the waiting list and contacted once a seat becomes available.
--
If you want to pair with someone in a team, please tell me 2 of your team colors, along with team name and nationality.

b) All participants are expected to stay active. If a driver remains inactive for 2 weekly events in a row they will lose their seat, regardless of whether there are people waiting to join or not.

c) It is every participants responsibility to read the rules. Not having read the rules is not a viable excuse in disagreements. If you complain without reading the rules you are risking of losing your seat.

d) The GPTCC reserves the right to deny entry without explanation.

2 - The Racing

a) Each race weekend will feature 2 free practice sessions and a single qualifying session, all with a time limit of 30 minutes.

b) The racing will be split into three separate events, lasting between 15-30 minutes (20% race distance) approximately.

c) Race 1 will use the grid from qualifying, the Race 2 grid will use the results from Race 1 and Race 3 will be a reversed grid race using the results from Race 2 with the last placed finisher starting from pole. Drivers who retire from Race 2 will start from the back of the grid in Race 3 in the order in which they retired.

d) The series will use the following points system:

e) In the event of the occurrence of a game breaking bug - i.e. pitstop bug, drivers running out of fuel - the race results will be taken from an appropriate time, usually one lap prior to the bugs appearance. However if less then 75% race distance has been completely the results will be declared null and void

f) The GPTCC reserves the right to alter the calendar where necessary

3 - Performance
a) Drivers will be able to improve both their own and their cars abilities by buying upgrades

b) The base perf is set at 670bhp, 2000 chance of failure for the car and 15000 skill, and 250 variation for drivers.

c) All new drivers entering the series will start with 1000$ to spend, and an extra 50$ for every race they missed.

d) Drivers will not be able to purchase upgrades in between sessions. You will be notified when the market opens and closes. In case you haven't made your purchases, it is not the moderator's responcibility to tag you in a post, which means he will not do it. Start actually caring for the series.

e) Drivers will be rewarded the following amounts according to their finishing positions in the races:

f) There is no pole bonus for starting from pole in Race 2 or 3

g) Drivers can carry over a maximum of 2000$ from one season to the next. Anything extra you have will go to your bank account.

h) Drivers are able to buy the following upgrades:

4 - Sponsors

a) Drivers may also choose one qualifying and one race sponsor in order to boost their earnings:

bandicam 2014-11-13 21-11-28-520.jpg


b) Qualifying sponsor rewards are only given out in the first qualifying session. No qualifying rewards are given out for the Race 2 or 3 grids

c) Race sponsor rewards are only given out to drivers who are classified as finishing the race. Any driver who retires from a race becomes illegible for receiving race sponsor rewards for that race.

d) After the result of the first test session of the season has been posted, drivers will only be allowed to change their sponsor if they pay the amount of money you gain if you achieve that sponsor objective. (ex. B->D on race costs 100$). You can only change 1 quali or race sponsor during the season, NOT both.

e) For sponsors "C", you need to have a teammate to get any reward.

5 - Liveries
a) All liveries must display both the drivers name and personal number

b) Drivers are allowed to design and use their own helmets, please use the shape found here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/rtodu744fhh41di/Arai GP-5 RC 2008.rar

c) Likewise drivers are free to design there own cars, all the available car templates can be found here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/iagska579z762fl/templates (3).zip
Also, the cockpit textures for Opel and both Audi cars only, which is a separate file. Not necessary to modify, you can leave the original Vodafone one too

d) Livery updates during the season are allowed.

e) Liveries must be sent in TGA or TEX format, in any other format the livery will be considered not sent, and I will use a placeholder livery instead (check rule 5g). If you have a good reason behind it, then tell me.

f) Drivers are allowed to chose their own personal numbers from between 0 and 99, with #1 being reserved for the series champion

g) If you don't send a livery, I will use a placeholder livery that will contain only 2 colors by your choice. Don't expect this to be the work of art!

News post:
Vodafone GT have announced their return to the GPTCC, after they didn't have the money to enter at the start, but finally got enough of it with the new rule that applies for newcomers.
There are also rumours that Monster Mercedes will join as a newcomer team, but the team name remains unknown and yet to be revealed by team manager Mark Lintner. Speaking of Lintner, it has been announced he is coming into the series.

as you can see by the title, season 2, means they saved money from season 1.

As a rookie you start with 1000$. Read the rules for more info
