Wheel2WheelRacing is looking for drivers for various Project CARS leagues on PS4. As a league we've been together since 2012, starting originally on F1 2012 on PS3, running multiple splits all the way to F1 2014. Our leagues are 100% distance (roughly an hour and a half for Formula One, probably around 2 hours for WEC) and promote clean and fair racing between members. We have also run GT5/6 leagues in the past and will be hosting F1 2015 leagues when the game is released.

Currently we are looking for drivers for Formula B leagues and LMP1 leagues, with more to be added in different disciplines to be added as members come forward to take part.

Lobbies typically open at 7:30PM GMT, with a 15 minute qualifying session starting at 7:45PM and the race starting at 8:05PM (5 minutes break after qualifying.) Days of the week are yet to be fully established, but it's looking like Tuesday and Thursday at the moment with the leagues starting in a week or two and F1 2015 being on Wednesday and Friday upon release.

We also have a full team of driver stewards who discuss any appeals and incidents that occur as well as dealing out appropriate penalties and discussing future features of the league. This is open to all members for contribution.

Both wheel and pad users are welcome. Assists are permitted. A no assist split will be setup if there's demand for it, we have run this in the past for the F1 games. New drivers will be inducted in a short race with a member of the site to prove they are able to drive cleanly.

If you are interested in racing please sign up on the website and comment on your preferred league. It would be handy if people could also post below with their username on the site and PSN ID. Any questions please feel free to ask below, on the site, or message me on PSN/Twitter @Aletdownofstate.

Here are the provisional calendars/rules for the initial leagues.

Formula B/GP2

Timetable & Format

Races will run on Tuesday evenings. Times are in GMT.


7:30pm - Lobby opens and invites go out.
7:45pm - Qualifying 1 starts, 15 minute session.
8:00pm - Race 1 starts. 20 laps/40 minutes.
9:00pm - Qualifying 2 starts, 15 minute session.
9:15pm - Race 2 starts. 30 laps/60 minutes.

Race 2 timing is subject to change based on race 1 length, it should hopefully be around this time though, if it finishes a substantial amount of time before then, then it will be brought forward. There will be a break between race 1 ending and race 2 qualifying starting.

Rules


No pitstops are required in either race, the pits however will be open for repairs etc.
Standard racing rules and etiquette are to be adheared to. Only one direction change allowed to defend a position, track limits and no moving in the braking zones etc.
Standard FIA points table for the top 10 for both races.
Backmarkers must be aware of lapping cars. Impeding another driver will result in penalties.
ALL drivers must, at the very least, save their replay for both races. It doesn't have to be uploaded to YouTube, but it must be available to provide evidence for any incidents that may occur. No footage, no appeal and likewise no footage no counter appeal (Claiming lag was the cause of a collision for example.)

hi is it manual or auto gears thanksYou can use either.


Still accepting racers for LMP1?Yep.

Bump

4 spaces left in the FB league and a quite a few left in the LMP1 league.

Also, when people sign up can they actually post once your account is activated. Simply signing up and saying nothing accomplishes nothing, and I'm not about to start trying to chase people up for info.

We have a test race scheduled for this Thursday (25/06/15) evening at 730pm GMT. Anyone potentially interested in the league is welcome to join to see how it goes.

Also, we are looking to expand into FA, GT3/4, DTM and WTCC/BTCC if anyone is interested.

After the test race, the rules and race format has been altered to more fit within the limits of the game (until pit stops are reliable), see the first post for details.

We are looking to start Tuesday 30th June.

Currently have 5 open spaces for split 1 as well as reserve slots. More than willing to add additional splits if drivers come forward.
