    Intro:
    It's back! Challenge yourself against other hopefulls in our GT3 Challenge series and move your way up into GT Pro.
    The challenge series will support multiple splits.
    Based on the hotlap qualifier, the remaining drivers that didn´t made it into the GT Pro Series yet, will be sorted into several splits with 30 drivers.
    While the Challenge Series has an overall ranking which determines who goes up to Pro Series or Relegation after the Season (which is 6 Rounds long), after every 2nd race we are looking at the points accumulated in just those 2 races to determine the promotion/demotion between grids. Means, if you are Top 5 of Grid 2 in terms of scoring in those 2 races, you will start in Grid 1 for the next races, if you are (as another example) bottom 5 of Grid one in terms of scoring in the last 2 races, you will start in Grid 2 in the next races. As you can see, the grids in Challenge are more fluent and with this we try to always match you with a great group to race. Promotion/Demotion between Grid 1 and Pro Series only happens once a season tho, after all rounds have been finished, based on Overall Points.

    • Participation points: Split 1: 100 Split 2: 75 Split 3: 50, Split 4: 25
    • 3 warnings before cut track penalty (but game controls this, so you might get a penalty before if you cut hard)
    • Penalties will be added to race time on the actual race
    • You are allowed to move once to defend position, but NOT when entering braking zone.
    Protest here
    Standings, results, entry list and IRR

    Hi, I'm not able to register, just show Nurburgring Hotlaps as an available competition.

    For other drivers, they are managing to register?

    Actually, this season has fixed setup for the PreQ, to enable everyone to have the same base going into this. Same car, same track, same setup (just for Q obviously!)

    It's live now, there was an issue with a server (not dedicated, simply the one handling the sign up). Go :) Good luck everyone.

    Is it possible to change the account last name of the competition system when you are already registered?

    (as seen on previous hotlap qualifiers on Silverstone) can drivers cut over the old chicane in the last section to gain time. It was allowed before. I haven't opened the track yet to see if there is already prevention, just want to know what to expect

    hello @Jimmi Allison , issue 1 and comment if you could change the name of the subscription that comes out in the times of the qualifications, my name in rfactor has always been Adrian Blasco and I put my other last name Adrian granero, it was said that it would look at to change the name but I still can't do it, some solution or it can't be changed. Thank you.

    If people think this will give them an advantage - then let them, i will simply remove their laps after this. Dont ever think you can do this in a comp here, you might have had weak ruling in other series or even older series here. But not when i host things.

    We still cant change anything in the comp system, as annoying as it is. Hopefully once the series is over we do do things in December.
