TUNER'S PIT RACING ASSOCIATION
The TPRA (Tuner's Pit Racing Association) is a prestigious online racing league that was established way back in April 2008. We were arguably the first organised racing league to promote and hold online racing on Gran Turismo 5: Prologue on the PS3 with just a handful of members.
Today, we have over 650 registered members from around the world and provide racing on Gran Turismo 6 on the PS3 and of course Project CARS on the PS4. We are proud to be able to post one of our Project CARS series here!
Please visit us at www.tunerspit.com and follow us on Twitter @tunerspit (https://twitter.com/tunerspit) for more information, to join our league (for free) and to get racing!

We hope to see some of you on the track this Sunday at this event! Get Online And Race!

Hello everyone, I am organizing a championship gt3 for September and would like to know why you banned if the Bentley for one reason because it consumes little power or the tires or more.

Thank you

Thank you

It was banned for this race because it's too fast compared to the other GT3 cars. Ideally, we want a mix of cars as close as possible to each other.

What a glitched end to the series. First of all, two of the field got sent back to the PS4 home screen during the last 10 laps of the race, effectively ending their running. Second, calvins48 and Puckhead both experience a glitch that caused their cars to prop up randomly onto two wheels.

This ultimately cost calvins48 the victory. Leading by around 5 seconds on lap 20, his car flew up onto two wheels then steered itself into the dirt. This allowed racingkid9 to catch up and pass him. Even though calvins48 had the pace to retake the lead, there were no safe places to pass (a feature of the Willow Springs track) and racingkid9 took the victory in his TPRA debut. Slightly tainted nonetheless, but well-earned all the same. He was in the right place at the right time then defended well and it earned him the win. For the neutral, the end of the race would've been very thrilling to watch!!


QUALIFYING
Qualifying was very close with 2 tenths of a second covering the top 3 drivers. Pole position was constantly being traded back and forth throughout the session.

RACE
1st: racingkid9
2nd: calvins48
3rd: nba336

Unfortunately and regretfully, I didn't manage to save the replay of the race. This wasn't because I forgot, it was because I was putting some important information in the Party Chat and missed saving it and also missed taking a screenshot of the results. So the titanic battle at the end can't be seen, only expressed in words.
If anybody saved the replay, I'd appreciate if they could send it my way and I could try and make some highlights. My apologies to all involved who wanted pictures and highlights of one of the best ends to a race we've seen for some time at the TPRA.


Thanks to all those that came out to race in this series. As one of the first Project CARS series the TPRA has run, it was a blast. Here's to the next one! Coming this Fall! Keep it locked to www.tunerspit.com for all of the info and for more races on both Project CARS and Gran Turismo! :)
