    Canceled - Attack the Glen Challenge (Beginners Racing Series)

    Please note nothings final.
    Also please note, slight change to round 3. (BMW Z4 GT3 to Mercedes SLS AMG GT3)

    Another note... Driver deadline. - Because of a temporary job I've taken, if less than 6 other drivers fail to join the series by July 18 I will be forced to cancel/push back this first season, Sorry.
    (My reasoning - Right now with me out on summer break from school, this is one of the few times in a year I can gain any real money. And as my workload increases my chances to play video games is cut down drastically. For you this means a lot of skipped races and not a very professional championship setting unlike how I envisioned it. Now that being said if you can join before July 18 and we can get 8 willing drivers, That gets all the hard work out of the way with scheduling and preparation. In other words after that's done we're just in it for the racing )

    I am very sorry about this, but as a High school SR. Looking to get in to college, I have to jump at any money making opportunity's as they come.


    Drivers thus far... (Need at least 8)

    Hello and welcome, For a while now I've wanted to start trying to race online in a series type structure. However due to time constraints, lack of a racing wheel and lack of beginner friendly racing series, I haven't been able to do so. Undoubtedly I'm not the only one, so I decided to make a racing series myself. Welcome to the Attack the Glen Challenge.

    Who is Triple H Studios?
    Triple H Studios is the name of my youtube channel, and if all goes well all races will be posted on there.

    What is Attack the Glen?
    Attack the Glen is a five week, ten race, beginner racing series taking place in Project Cars on both versions of the Watkins Glen racing circuit.

    What?
    Basically each round is set up in a two race per round format. The first race takes place on the GP version of Watkins Glen, with a 30 min qualifying session. The second race uses the shorter NASCAR circuit, with a 10 min qualifying session. Each round (every set of two races) will use a different car. (So round one - stock car, round two - GT3 Aston Martin... so on) Each race is a five lap sprint race, with no fuel or tire consumption.

    So how beginner is "beginner"?
    Very, all driver aids except stability control are allowed. We'll happily welcome controller users as well as wheel users.

    How do we know who wins the championship?
    Scoring is based solely based on finishing position in each race...
    Race one (GP)
    First place 10 points
    Second place 8 points
    Third place 6 points
    Fourth place 4 points
    Fifth place 2 points
    Sixth place on back 1 point
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Race Two (NASCAR)
    First place 5 points
    Second place 4 points
    Third place 3 points
    Fourth place 2 points
    Fifth place 1 points
    Sixth place on back 0 points

    How do I join and when does this madness start?
    As of right now, nothing is final. Obviously we need drivers to make this happen, Therefor if you would like to join, leave a comment down below, or send me a PM here on the form. Once we have enough drivers I'll post the series starting date in this Thread, as well as more info as you need it. (Passwords, gamer tags to friend... so on)

    Prizes?
    As of right now, no prizes for this season.

    Rules?
    We have a few...
    1. We want clean racers. Yes accidents happen, but screaming into turn 1 at 700 MPH is reckless driving and you will be kicked for that.

    2. During races no chat please. During Qualifying it's fine just not during the race, you can and will be kicked from the championship for talking. (That being said if you crash someone out, feel free to apologize. Just don't sit there talking about dinner.)

    3. Replay review. All races will have there replays saved, if we find you cut the track, crashed someone off on purpose... so on, you'll be DQ'ed from that race and will finish last. (Also drivers feel free to record the race or certain incidents if you thinks someone is cheating. Just put it on youtube and put a link here in the thread, for us to review)

    4. Races can be made "void". Basically my internet can be shit sometimes, if three or more people are kicked out of the race by a issue on my end... (Power kicking off, internet turning off) The race will be made "Void". No points will be awarded and that race will NOT be rerun. However if you internet goes down and you leave the race, you will be considered a DNF and no points will be awarded.

    5. Can not connect (CNC) rule. Sometimes the interwebs can be a bitch, if you can not connect to the session by the start of the first race you will be deemed a CNC. No points will be awarded. However we will make every effort to get you in.

    6. The six strike rule. If you are CNC'ed, or DQ'ed, six times in one season you will be kicked out of the championship.

    7. Race/round not run (RNR) If a round is cancelled (by me for personal reasons or for lack of drivers for that weekend) Points will be doubled the following weekend/round.

    So there's the base rules, more will come closer to the start of the season.

    Most likely on the weekends (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) Starting around 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm eastern time depending on host availability. If enough drivers join I will post a schedule, specifying which day each round will take place on, and normally a day or 2 before the round starts I will post a time you need to join the race by.

    (Edit #2)
    One thing I really wanted to simulate is the heart thumping excitement of attempting a last lap pass and drag racing him to the line not knowing if you beat him or not, and in my opinion the only way you can really do that is in cockpit cam. That being said, if your going to use a outside camera I would rather you use hood or roof camera and the rear view mirror. But will allow any view as long as you keep it clean,
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Ok I'm in what cars will we be driving?
    Subject to change
    Round 1 Formula Gulf 1000. - A simple, fun to drive, low powered open wheeler. Rewards clean consistent driving, and hates tall curves
    Round 2 Radical SR-8 - Well balanced in the turns and fast on the straights the Radical reward aggressive yet clean driving.
    Round 3 Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 - ______________________________________________________________________
    Round 4 Trans Am Mustang - Widebody American muscle. Little hard to see out of, so expect some heart thumping passes.
    Round 5 Caterham 7 classic - A track day car at it's best, all the trills of a open wheel race car with a windscreen!

    So if you would be interested in joining leave a message here on this thread. Feel free to ask any questions and have a nice day.

    Ok driver #1, Um... just, you are on Xbox one correct. Your platform currently says PC? Please also keep in mind that if we don't get enough drivers, this season will be canceled. (Sadly)

    Any flexibility on the camera view? I usually prefer chase camera view for online racing so I can see other cars around me (and hopefully avoid contact better that way).

    I use cockpit camera with a pretty nasty amount of FOV but I agree with you, most beginers did not have a favorite camera yet and I don't think any view give any advantage
