Season 3 is coming to an end, and that can mean only one thing: the Gathering of Tweakers Season 3 Finale!
Tiny le mans
This season, the Gathering of Tweakers organizes the Tiny le Mans. We stick to our Team setup formula. Each team consists of two drivers, each driving a different car in a separate class.
The overall winner of this event will be the team with the most points combined in the 70m race. There will be no points in the 20m race. Instead, the result will be used as the starting grid for the 70m race.
You’re also invited to join GoT Event Teamspeak server.
At our Teamspeak server you find 43 Team garages, choose one for your team.
If you want to be interviewed by the broadcast crew after one of the races please join in the “Broadcast Crew” area the “Waiting for interview” channel.
Racespot.tv and iRacing Live will cover the race live through the following channels:
Racepot.TV: YouTube: Racepot.tv channel (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.

IMPORTANT NOTICE – CLASSES AND STARTING GRID
As iRacing doesn’t support gridding based on a previous multiclass race properly, there are two important notices:
- Race 1 will not use classes, and will place every driver in the same class.
- Race 2 will use classes as usual, but will not be gridded by class (this is impossible). Due to the natural speed difference most faster class cars should be ahead of the slower class anyway.
Please be aware of a possible mixed grid at the start of the second race, and be extra careful in race 1 to avoid having to start behind the slower class!
Saturday September 9th
16:00 – 22:00 (06:00): Two simultaneous Free Practices. One on the short and one on the full course
All session can be found in our Special Events League.
To register, please consider registering as a team of 2 drivers (one Ford GT 2017, one Ford GT GT2). If you cannot find a teammate, you can register alone and will be placed in a team by us. In that case, please check the number of solo drivers so far and their cars, we cannot match up 20 solo drivers if they’ve chosen the same car!
The winner of this event is the team with the most points combined. So both drivers need to finish well to have a shot at winning this event.
Point per race
This time we do not offer live race control as we all join the race this time. Normal iRacing rules & sporting code will be applied.
The organization still has the right to hand out penalties (drive-through all the way to a DQ) if things escalate in any way.
Especially behaviour during the sprint race is looked at!
Unfortunately, we feel mandated to impose a small minimum license restriction before you are eligible to race.
Minimum road license: C class
Minimum road iRating: 1500
Gathering of Tweakers community members who do not meet these restrictions may be allowed to race at the discretion of the organization.
Podium after the Chequered Flag
Drivers are invited to join the at our TeamSpeak server the “Waiting for interview” channel in the “Broadcast Crew” area for a interview by our broadcast crew.
Registration is done at the thread at the iRacing Forum: http://members.iracing.com/jforum/posts/list/3570266.page#10673414
We hope to see a full grid!
