    World Endurance Series GT3 Info. Thread.

    Hello fellow racers!

    My name is Rob (aka TWEAK DEMON) and I am the Director behind the World Endurance Series based in Project CARS on Xbox Live.

    As of right now we are only running GT3, LMP2 and Group 4/5 cars on a wide variety of locations and tracks.

    We race with Visual damage and mechanical failures (to compensate for online instability) but run everything else as close to full realism as possible. This series at it's core is designed to be fun and challenging which is why a typical race will have a 30 minute qualifier and an hour or more main race. The rules are very simple and we ask that after round 2 you have selected a car (the paint scheme must not be already chosen) and stick to it for the remainder of the season. Race details are released up to one week prior to start.

    We are always welcoming new drivers to the series. All that we ask is that you come with a 35mbps connection or greater (stable), a professional/fun/positive attitude, and conduct yourself on track with good sportsmanship. Any sort of malicious attacking on the track or over comms will be grounds for immediate dismissal from the series permanently. This is not Need For Speed or GTA so do not treat it as such.

    Thank you for your time in reading this post and I look forward to seeing some of you on the track. Everyone else is free to post and comment here about the WES as they desire.

    World Endurance Series Rules for GTE/GTC/LMP2:
    1) Fuel is restricted to a maximum of 40 liters. This includes refueling in the pits. This restriction is subject to change based on location and will be announced during the current race weekend. Infringement of this rule will result in a 15 second time penalty OR automatic Disqualification. No exceptions.

    2) Attacking another car in such a way that forces the driver to crash or lose control will result in Disqualification for the first offense. Second offense will result in Disqualification and suspension from the following round. Third offense is an automatic ban from the series.

    3) Cutting the track to gain an advantage in a section that is not system monitored will result in a 5 second time penalty to your end race time for every cut that is made. The only exception to this rule is escape roads that do not allow an advantage and are used to avoid crashing into other drivers.

    4) Blocking a faster car by means of weaving, cutting off, or brake checking is strictly forbidden. Any unsportsmanlike behavior will be investigated and penalized accordingly to include bans from the series.

    Classic Sub-Series Additional Rules for Group 4/5:

    1) BMW 320 and Ford Zakspeed Capri Turbo cars are limited to a maximum Wastegate Pressure of 2.0 Bar. This not only allows equal power to weight with the BMW M1 Procar, but also reduces engine wear and fuel consumption. Infringement of this rule is subject to the same penalties as Fuel load limitations outlined above.

    2) Classics are allowed a maximum of 50 liters of fuel due to their higher consumption rates than the modern WES classes. Infringement of this rule is subject to the same penalties as Fuel load limitations outlined above.

    ***RULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT ANY TIME DEEMED APPROPRIATE BY THE RACE DIRECTOR***

    Here is the press release following Round 1's completion. Please note that starting from here on in will be a live twitch feed for every qualifying round and race for those that wish to spectate.

    LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THE RACE IS OVER!!!

    Congratulations to all drivers who made an appearance for the start of the season at Watkins Glen! Before the race began, the Rapa Motorsports #100 Aston Martin V12 Vantage of Krack Monster was withdrawn during practice due to a catastrophic engine failure. The track had to be closed for nearly half an hour as debris and fluids were cleared before qualifying could begin. Krack said it was an unfortunate end to a promising start of the season but assured fans that he would be back for round 2. Rapa Motorsports has had continuous mechanical failures with their Aston's. Driver Tweak Demon left the team early in pre season testing after 3 engine and gearbox failures occurred in just under a week. He was later picked up by the factory Aston Martin Racing team and was quoted as saying "good riddance" after signing the one race trial contract.

    It was a brutal race for all in attendance with one true victor in the end by what can only be described as a blistering run. The late entry of driver "Trail Boss" in the Silver Factory Audi R8 LMS Ultra was a welcome addition after proving his skill as a fellow racer on the track and setting the bar high with his 16 second lead over Rodimius Prime in the Dominum Musk Mercedes #57 SLS AMG GT3 at the finish line. SR71A in the Dyson Racing #88 Bentley Continental GT3 was fighting with Trail Boss for the lead early on in the race and slowly began to lose ground to the faster Audi. Eventually, SR71A found his pace to match that of Rodimius in the SLS all the way up until lap 24 when both vehicles made their final mandatory pit stop. It was a battle of the pit crews but unfortunately the Dyson crew fumbled a wheel nut and gave the now 2nd place SLS a staggering lead. Tweak Demon in the Aston Martin Racing #007 V12 Vantage GT3 struggled with reliability issues and an inconsistent setup that dropped him from 3rd back to 5th within 5 laps. Soldiering on and finally finding some rhythm on track, Tweak eventually started to gain ground on the pack. An early pit stop at lap 20 saw the Aston pit crew change to an endurance strategy for the remainder of the race choosing a slightly longer fuel up and a swap to intermediate tires. Although he was lapped by the leading R8, his consistency paid off and eventually saw him reach a podium finish in 3rd place passing the Bentley that suffered an ignition issue roughly 6 laps before the end. Zeta Prime in the JAE Glass #5 Audi R8 LMS Ultra started in 5th position but didn't stop him from seeing the top 3 for the first half of the race. Unfortunately a mechanical fault in the drivetrain and a worsening steering issue stopped the R8 dead in it's tracks just 2 corners from the pits on lap 15. In a very respectable move, Tweak Demon in the Vantage attempted to assist the stranded R8 on lap 16 by pushing him back to the pits but the bold move of sportsmanship wasn't to be as a marshal immediately warned Tweak for interfering with the progression of the race. Zeta Prime and his immobile R8 were towed back to the pits where the car was officially retired for the remainder of the race. Zeta was visibly disappointed but said "These things happen in racing. Today just wasn't meant to be but the team and I will get together and sort out what went wrong so we can be fully prepared for next week."

    After round 1 at Watkins Glen, a total of 65 minutes and 117 miles were covered seeing great disappointment and spectacular finishes. In the end Trail Boss took home 1st place and starts the season with 25 points under his belt. Following closely in 2nd place with 18 points is Rodimius Prime after running a very solid and consistent race. In a surprise third place after a last minute bold strategy change, Tweak Demon crossed the line to claim 15 points. Finishing the race in 4th was SR71A with a respectable 12 points. Zeta Prime who was unable to finish was awarded 5th in class with 10 points. And rounding out the pack in 6th place was Krack Monster who although was unable to start brought back 5 points for managing to set a time during practice. The field remains open for more new comers to join in as the season progresses to bring in more fans of the new series.

    World Endurance Series racing director and driver in the field Tweak Demon made a statement after the awards ceremony: "What a race! It was fantastic driving along side everyone out there and seeing all the fans that came out for the love of motorsports racing. We have a great start to the season with Watkins Glen now behind us. I know myself and everyone here is eager to see more drivers and teams begin joining the World Endurance Series as we gain the attention of Motorsports fans across the globe. But now we are getting on planes and heading to Belgium to race on the historic Circuit De Spa-Francorchamps. This next race will be 150 miles of fast corners and massive elevation changes with no mandatory pit stops like there were today. Everyone knows the weather out there can be very unpredictable so we may not be so lucky as we were today with the beautiful blue and white skies, but I don't foresee us having anything more than a drizzle if Mother Nature pays us a visit during our stay. If you come out to watch be sure to bring an umbrella just in case!"

    Race 2 of the World Endurance Series at Spa, Belgium will take place Saturday June 20th. The time lights will go out for race start is still being worked out with the track staff. Stay tuned for word on when we can expect the next round to officially kick off.

    Sounds like a cool Series. If I wasn't already in 2 leagues I would jump in. Right now I'm running the British GT Championship series at RaceDepartment.com in a GT3 and TORA in a GT4.

    World Endurance Series News


    The early morning peace was suddenly shattered by the sound of an engine. The paddock at Circuit De Spa-Francorchamps had come alive with the roar of 8 cylinder fury, barking as it made it's way towards the circuit. A blur of black and white machinery was all that could be seen as it blasted through Eau Rouge at full throttle charging up the hill. The machine in question was that of a brand new Ginetta G55 GT3. The warm up lap had awoken the fans that were sleeping in tents and hotel rooms around the track; their groggy expressions were quickly replaced with amazement as the new entry to the series came down the front straight. A nearby timing board illuminated over the track and began to count as the car flew across the starting line. The excitement of the fans was now audible from hundreds of yards away as they read the information on display; Tweak Demon was the driver of the #91 G55 from KUME Racing. After several laps, each dropping in time to a point where the consistency began to show for 5 straight, the Ginetta entered the pits and shut off where we were waiting to greet him with his pit crew. As he unstrapped himself and exited the car, he slapped his race engineer on the back with a side hug and exchanged some ecstatic praises for the car and the crew. Looking to the crowd that had gathered, he pulled off his helmet and said "Now THAT is a proper race car!". The fans all cheered and clapped with enthusiasm. "This might be a good time to state the obvious...the Vantage isn't here. Aston Martin Racing and I have decided after the last race's problems and the mishap with Krack Monster in the Rapa Motorsports Vantage that we should part ways." A question from the crowd came. "Has Aston Martin decided to pull the Vantage from the series?"
    Tweak responded "I hear they are looking for a new driver since my departure. As far as I know they still plan on keeping the V12 Vantage in the series and aren't pulling their support from any of the teams using their cars. It does sound like they are working on some things internally to resolve the problems that keep arising from the drivetrain and suspension though so hopefully it works out for them. I know Krack Monster was on the track doing some testing yesterday. From what he told me the kinks have been ironed out but he's still keeping his options open at this point, so we'll see where that goes leading into the race."
    Another fan spoke up "Has the staff come to a decision when the race will be?"
    "Yes, actually we nailed down a solid date and time late last night. Expect to see qualifying begin on Father's Day at 4 in the afternoon."
    The media group chimed in "can someone from KUME Racing comment on the testing today?"
    Race Engineer Delano Stanz piped up "We are extremely pleased with the results today and very excited to have Tweak running our car with us for the remainder of the season. The Ginetta is running an outstanding pace in his hands and our data is spot on for what we were expecting out of the car. I have every confidence that we won't have to deal with any reliability problems this season given the support we've received from the factory and our sponsors".
    Tweak stepped forward "Thank you so much for the support and coming down here to speak with us. I'm going to the track diner for some brunch in about twenty minutes where we can continue this as you all are welcome to join me". The crowd cheered and clapped with enthusiasm and began to disperse as the KUME racing driver and crew returned to their debriefing and maintenance.

    Qualifying for the race will commence Sunday June 21 at 4PM MDT at Circuit De Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. Twitch.tv live onboard feeds from the #91 KUME Racing Ginetta G55 and #88 Dyson Racing Bentley Continental will be available for spectators around the world to tune in and watch the action unfold. Web address links to those feeds will be posted here as soon as the teams release them to the public.

    Sounds like a blast...do you guys run any races longer than 35 mins? I like them long adds a bit of extra strategy if they release you from the pits.

    We run 35+ Laps depending on the track. That's well over 35 minutes of racing plus qualifying prior to the race which is set at 15 minutes.
