GoT Grand Tour

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

In Season 2 of 2012 we started with a weekly tournament on Tuesdays and in Season 3 of the same year we changed the day of the week to Mondays and the name to Monday Tournament.

From Season 2 2017 the name changed to GoT Grand Tour and from Season 3 2017 we are back on the Monday and have selected a greater variety of cars for the 12 races.

This Tournament is a free for all members of our League and hosted in our iRacing League. To join our League you must have an D license or higher and an iRating above 1500 (waved for community members).

Every Season we race for 12 weeks with a great variety of cars and every week on a different track.

The full program of the current season can be found in our Calendar and our Tournament Site.

This ensures that also slower drivers get points and can compete instead of getting 0 points every race. It also makes it a lot more difficult to win the tournament in the end.

For a 2-heat races, heat 1 scores slightly higher points:

Heat 1: 18, 17, 16, 15, … 1
