Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

Season 1 is coming to an end, and that can mean only one thing: the Gathering of Tweakers Season 1 Finale!


GoT Watkins Glen 911 Challenge




General Information


This season, the Gathering of Tweakers organize the GoT Watkins Glen 911 Challenge. The competitors will use the Porsche 911, and will fight to the finish in a 30m and 60m race at Watkins Glen.

The 30m race will use the Cup layout without chicane, and for the 60m race,the chicane and Boot section are added.
The end results of race 1 will be the starting grid of race 2, with the top 20 finishes reversed.

Between both races there will be a short time-out so the organization can setup a 2nd session and drivers are able to join that session. You’re also invited to join the GSRC TeamSpeak server during that time for a quick interview.





Global SimRacing Channels and iRacing Live will cover the race live through the following channels:
GSRC channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/GSRCBroadcasting/ (The direct link to the broadcast will be published later)
iRacing Live: http://www.iracing.com/live/


Custom Paint Schemes Optional but encouraged

We would like to see as much as possible Custom Paint Schemes as it makes the live broadcast much interesting to look at. Just use Trading Paints as the broadcasters and most of the drivers have that running.
