Series Details:

This series will revolve around a virtual “career path."

You’ll start off your career driving one of the Gran Turismo Go Karts.  You’ll finish your career driving a Formula 1 car. You’ll drive various other levels of cars along the way.

Each race will feature a different “class” of cars, (ie Go Kart, Gr1, Gr2, Gr3, Gr4, #RoadCar, FF, FR, MR, etc etc.)

All races will be BoP with NO TUNING. 

You choose your car from the appropriate class listed for that specific race. 

This series will last for 10 races; 1 per week.

​Each race should last about 45-60 minutes.

The lobby will open at 8:30pm ET for practice. Qualifying will begin at 9:30pm sharp!

At 9:30pm, I will reset the track and qualifying will begin. Qualifying will last for 15 minutes.

At the end of the 15 minute qualifying period, I will give everyone 2 minutes to make any tire changes that may be needed.

After that, the race begins!

To make things more realistic, weather will be set to random and damage will be set to light.

Keep your eyes open for various bonus point opportunities as we progress through the series.

Series Requirements:

  • Car Type - Will Change Weekly. See each individual race description in the schedule below.

Sweaty Palms winning Go Kart

It was a lovely warm afternoon for Go Kart racing. There were some slips, some slides, and some fast go karts. In the end, Sweaty Palms pulled out the win in the #54 Kart.

There was rain in the forecast at Tsukuba, but the skies never opened up. As a result, it was smooth sailing for socalj4. With the reverse grid, socalj4 was able to start out front and never looked back.

After a little batch of fog rolled through during practice, the green flag dropped with beautiful weather conditions. socalj4 seemed to appreciate the nice weather as he continued his tear towards the top of the standings!

It was agentorunge's inaugural race tonight. The hype was legit as he pulled off a trifecta. Top qualifier, fastest lap, and race winner. Not a bad way to make your presence known.

Another race, another win for tomthetech! In fact, he pulled off the win, the top qualifier, AND the fastest lap. Pretty complete race. Fog rolled in late in the race, but it wasn't enough to slow down tomthetech.
