PostSubject: Pirelli World Challenge   Sun Apr 21, 2013 6:54 pm

I've been wanting to run a Pirelli World Challenge replica series for a while now and I've finally got all the information I need to run it, but for right now I just wanna gauge interest in a series such as this. The format will be that closely to the FSCS, in that it will be multi-class racing. The PWC consists of 4 classes but I will only be focusing on 3: GT, GTS, and TC. All races will use flag conditions (really the only flag condition will be yellow flags, green flags, and checkered flags). There will be a total of 14 rounds spread across 9 tracks for the season, some tracks will have multiple rounds run consecutively. All races will be in a sprint format, lasting no longer than an hour each round. Due to the PWC running 55 minute sprint races there will be a end race timer after the first GT car crosses the finish line. This is for multiple reasons: (1) To speed the end of the races up; (2) To try to keep the races within the 55 minute sprint time; (3) To allow damaged cars to be able to continue to race unless otherwise deemed unable aka 100% engine damage or flipped over, both of which will go down as a mechanical failure and result in a DNF. A website is up and coming and if you have any questions on any of the specifics please feel free to ask. Hopefully if I can get enough interest I can get this started within the month or so. Thanks for your time.

There are a few of these out there. They are fun to run in. I'm sure yours will be also, but if you want my opinion. run tcb also. No one is doing that and I have built all cars in each class including tcb and I would say tcb gives the most competitive. Plus they are a blast to zip around in.

I'll run it if there are enough drivers to fill the class. If you would like you can either gift me the builds for them so that I can have them and help me test them or give me your test results. The VTS sheets for those cars are non-existent on the PWC site and the Appendix A, at least for me, is hard for me to understand as far as fitting the builds from the sheet to Forza. Just let me know. I would love to run TCB alongside TC like it's meant to be, but that will take some scheduling because all 4 classes on one track might be a HUGE handful.

When I get internet again I'll be glad to helpyou out. I had to wing the builds also for them. I'm not sure how you are balancing the cars. It seems that you already have them done but just going with a straight build matching the real life builds doesn't always work. Especially with this series. The cars are very different once you transfer it to forza. Any help you need just pm me and I'll do what I can to help from here but any direct help will have to wait until internets get hooked up.

yea I'm going off the straight builds from the series, but I'm testing them as well to see how they transfer to Forza and close...or not close they might be, but with the gear ratios that the PWC runs installed into the cars they aren't that far off from each other, so testing is looking good. Also I'm not afraid of cutting certain cars from the list if need be. Should have the finalized GT car list up by tonight and the website should be up and running by the weekend.
