After alot of discussions behind the scene's we have managed to agree a full crossover league with RWB (Which apparently means Red White Blue and not Really Weird Bastards after all), TCSR (Total Control Sim Racing) & SRO (Sim Racers Online) to join together on Friday nights and battle it out in the fun little Ginetta GT5.
There is a caveat though with the limitation of only 32 grid slots for races we have had to limit sign ups to only 8 per team, which in the Summer months isn't as much an issue as it would be in the colder months.
With that said by all accounts alot of fun was had in the first race on Friday 6th July. The first race cemented an already good relationship across the clubs with clean respectful racing and not one single incident reported, however due to a date mix up TCSR missed the first race.
The Ginetta GT5 being a car with finite tuning options really lends it self to close knit racing - perfect for a fun crossover event.
When and Where:
All races will be held on Friday night's with the host for the night being the clubs picked track and laps are set to the equivalent of a 1 hour race.

Details: Points, reporting etc
Points (In order from 1st to 32nd):
45, 42, 40, 38, 36, 34, 32, 30, 28, 26, 24, 22, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
You will be awarded points for a non-finish as long as you have completed 75% of the race (Unless your game crashes or you are disconnected, in which case, you must make it known that this was the case to a senior member or race organiser)
Incidents must be reported to admin within 24 hours, you will have longer to supply video evidence of which should include multiple angles, it is the reporting persons job to record their own video evidence, reports will be looked at by 1 admin from each club giving 4 decisions, majority decision stand, in the event of a hung decision it will be passed to 4 different admins to decide on.
It would be helpful if the drivers involved in the incidents reported each had their own evidence as we have found that 2 different perspectives can show if there has been a lag incident.
Points will be awarded for individuals but this is more about club points, each week the number of attendees per club and their points will be added up and divided by the number of racers to give a point average per club.
