Manufacturers Cup Point System

Manufacturers will be scored the same as individuals (1st 15points, 2nd 13 points, 3rd 11points…).  After each race the total points per manufacturer will be added together and then divided by how many drivers used that particular manufacturer .  Example: Audi finishes 2nd (13points), 3rd (11 points), 6th (5 points), and 7th (4points).  Points for Audi would be 33 divided by 4 drivers which would = 8.25 total points.  Total score will be rounded to the next whole number or a total of 9 points for Audi.  To be eligible for the manufacturer title a driver will have to use 1 manufacturer for at least half the season (6 races).  Drivers eligible will receive the following Manufacturer Cup points added to their driver’s standings 1st 30 points, 2nd 15 points, 3rd 5 points

Hey Wag!  Haven't raced with you for a while.  You don't need to pick a car right at the moment.  If you're free come to some of the practice sessions and try out all of the cars if you would like.  In my opinion it's probably best to stay with the newer cars.  Also, I believe the online dealership has both Audio's and one of the People's at the moment.

Hey White,

Glad to see that you're interested in this series.  I thought about including the R8 team Playstion Audi, but it's not exactly a DTM car or styled like one.  In my opinion it probably belongs in a different GT class or something that you would see race at the 24 hours of Le Mans.  But the main reason why I did not included it is because Audi already has two cars and I wanted to keep things as even as possible.  However, if a lot of people really want to use it then maybe we can decide as a group. 

 

Good question- all those rooms are public rooms.  We typically race in private rooms so we actually get people who want to race and not crash into each other on purpose.  What you will need to do is send me a friend request, then select "community" once in GT mode.  From there all practices and races will be held in "My Lounge"

I know I have the Mercedes and one of the Audis, the car with the blue paint and the red bull on it. I may have a Vaxhaull and an Opel not sure. I need to stop playing Ghost Recon too much and get with it on GT5 lol. Best of luck on your series dude. I'll be there.

What's up wisc.  This looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. I will TRY to make it because weekdays are hard for me to make it.  Specially when I usually gets off work right about when the race starts Man Sad

 

BTW, I don't know much about all the cars and its class, but what about that BMW (the one with the blue and white)?  Is that a Le Man's GT? and thus not a Touring car?



Like they say, "what goes around comes around," and I am not talking about Karma.

The Mercedes is one of the few I don't have.  I have been playing all week to see if that will pop up in the used car dealership.  Glad to hear that you will be racing in this series!
