  • CanAm VRL Recruiting - IMSA Style

    [CAV] F1_Racer68
    I know it's early, but based on what we have all read already, CanAm VRL is already making plans for an IMSA based multi-class season within Project CARS2

    The series will be based on an IMSA style format running LMP2, GTE and GT3 cars.

    Start date will be announced once the game is available, but anyone interested is welcome to join us now already as we run a split class series in Project CARS. We are about to run our 4th race of this season, running LMP900 and GT3 cars.

    Our focus is realism and authenticity. As such, we run REAL weather, REAL aids, and as many settings as possible on REAL. Even our schedule replicates reality as we only race every second Saturday. Afterall, we need time to ship the cars from track to track smile

  • Season 2 Schedule Shaping Up!!

    [CAV] F1_Racer68
    Our race schedule will be as follows:
    1. July 16
    2. July 30
    3. August 13
    4. August 27
    5. September 10

    8. October 22
    9. Nov 5
    10. Nov 19
    11. Dec 3
    12. Dec 17

    We decided to only go with 12 races this season so that we could end right before the Holidays and start fresh in 2017 rather than having a 3 week break between races.

    The following 12 tracks will comprise the 2016 Season 2 schedule:
    • Catalunya
    • Nurburgring GP
    • Hockenheim
    • Road America
    • Circuit de La Sarthe (Le Mans)*
    • Spa Francorchamps*
    • Watkins Glen International
    • Brands Hatch GP
    • Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
    • Imola
    • Sonoma GP
    • Zhuhai GP
    The order and date for each track still need to be worked out, but the above tracks will make up our schedule. La Sarthe and Spa Francorchamps will be 2.4 hour races and simulate a full 24 hour event (x10 time progression). All others will be 90 minutes simulating either a 3 or 6 hour event (x2 or x5 Time Progression).

    Full schedule should be posted on our website by end of day Sunday, June 26th.

    Sign up on our website to join. Plenty of spots open still in each class. As of today we have 7 signed up for LMP2 and 8 signed for GT4.

  • Season 2 Planning underway

    [CAV] F1_Racer68
    Our first 16 race season using project CARS is coming to an end with our final race on Saturday, June 11th. IT has been a good season so far. There have been a few hiccups along the way due to some bugs in the game, but we have learned a lot form them an have developed reasonable workarounds. Overall, this first season has been a success.

    Since we are now wrapping up Season 1, we have begun planning for our next season, which should start some time in July. The general format for Season 2 of our Project CARS championship has been determined. Based on Member voting, we will be planning a split class series using the following 2 classes:

    LMP2 - This class consists of 4 cars.
    • Alpine A450
    • Marek RP 219D LMP2
    • Oreca 03 Nissan
    • RWD P20 LMP2
    GT4 - This class will be limited to the following 4 cars:
    • Ford Mustang Boss 302R
    • Aston Martin Rapide Hybrid S
    • BMW M3 GT4
    • Toyota GT86 GT4
    The Ginetta G55 GT4 and the Aston Martin Vantage V8 GT4 will NOT be permitted as they have been proven to be unbalanced with the rest of the GT4 class. Extensive testing has been performed already on the official Project CARS forum and our initial tests have corroborated that testing.
