GTE3 Challenge – Season 3 2018 Finale – Registration is open!

General Information

The GoT GTE3 Challenge is a multi class event consisting of a one lap lone qualifier, a 10 minutes sprint race and a 90 minutes main race (grid based on the results of the sprint race) at the Circuit of the Americas (Grand Prix). We have two classes (GTE and GT3) with each three cars. Because of the nature of the track we will manage the amount of off tracks!

Cars
GTE – Class

  • Ferrari 488 GTE
  • Ford GT – 2017
  • Porsche 911 RSR
GT3 – Class
  • Audi R8 LMS
  • Ferrari 488 GT3
  • Mercedes AMG GT3

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE – CLASS BALANCING
We want to have a much as possible an even split grid over the two classes. Therefore we only allow approx. 30 cars in each class.
After we reach 30 registrations in total we place drivers on the waiting list if the balance is uneven to our opinion.

IMPORTANT NOTICE – CLASSES AND STARTING GRID
As iRacing doesn’t support gridding based on a previous multiclass race properly be aware of the below important notices:
[list]Race 1 will use NO classes as otherwise the gridding in Race 2 doesn’t work properly.[/list][list]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.[/list]
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!

Broadcast

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.

Car numbers
Car numbers are managed by iRacing.
