    We have just announced the 2016 Driver Network Season!

    There are several changes that you need to be aware of which will make the new Season fairer for everyone competing.

    Please read about these in detail at: http://projectcarsesports.com/preseason


    In particular:
    • There are two separate Series - one for Fixed Setups, and one for Open Setups.
    • Within each Series there are also two Divisions - one for PC, and one for Console (XB1 & PS4 combined).
    • Teams must now register to compete before April 1st and are allowed a maximum of 5 drivers per Series/Division.
    • Teams & drivers can compete in both the Fixed and Open Setup Series.
    • Teams can register different drivers for the Console & PC Divisions - allowing all teams to compete in both Divisions of both Series.
    • However, specific drivers cannot compete in both the Console & PC Divisions at the same time.

    Please read the detailed article on our website which explains these changes in-depth.

    We will announce full rules and regulations for both the Fixed Setup and Open Setup Series in the coming weeks.

    Teams! Do not forget to register your drivers before April 1!


    Drivers competing as individuals, without a team, do not need to pre-register. However the other rules still apply. You can compete in both the Fixed and Open Setup Series at the same time, but you cannot compete in both the PC and Console Divisions of any one Series.

    Nice news, I like! And I hope SMS fix the fuel bug with default setup and all the players drive with the same fuel in the tank. Or able the box menu to set up the fuel charge. That's is urgent necessary.

    -Is their an overall standing for each series ?

    -The final overall standing will include the two series combined or only one ?

    -The final overall standing will be made with the 3 platform or their will be 2 winners ? ( PC-Consoles )

    -We can made the two series right ? Because on the site we can't chose both we have only one choice.

    -Is it possible to have two rounds on a week like last year ? It was too much...

    -How long the championship ?

    -Can we have more than one team registered if they have for example 15 drivers can we made 3 teams ? If yes can we have separated platform on a team ( PS4-PS4-PS4-Xbox-PC ) ?

    -Is it possible to hide the round ? It will be great if they all started in the dark..

    -How long a round ? Same than last year ?

    -Is it possible to have one prize for the best time on each round including multi platform ?

    Is their an overall standing for each series?

    Yes, there will be separate overall standings for the Fixed Series and the Open Series.

    The final overall standing will include the two series combined or only one?

    There will be two separate Final standings, one for each Series. There will be separate prizes for each Series.

    The final overall standing will be made with the 3 platform or their will be 2 winners ? ( PC-Consoles )

    There will be 2 winners in each Series. One for PC, and one for Console (combined PS4 & XB1).

    We can made the two series right ? Because on the site we can't chose both we have only one choice.

    Teams can enter drivers for both Series. Please submit two forms if you wish to do this. One for the Fixed Series, and one for the Open Series.

    Is it possible to have two rounds on a week like last year ? It was too much...

    There will never be more than one round per weekend in 2016. The Fixed Series and the Open Series will never run at the same weekend.

    How long the championship?

    The Season will run from April to October.

    Can we have more than one team registered if they have for example 15 drivers can we made 3 teams ? If yes can we have separated platform on a team ( PS4-PS4-PS4-Xbox-PC ) ?

    You can register more than one team of 5 drivers per Series, but only if each team of 5 has a different name, e.g. Team Shark Racing A, Team Shark Racing B etc. Each team of 5 must include only PC players, or only Console (PS4, XB1) players. Not both.

    Is it possible to hide the round ? It will be great if they all started in the dark..

    Not sure what you mean, can you explain this question in more detail?

    How long a round ? Same than last year ?

    Round length will be the same as in 2015.

    Is it possible to have one prize for the best time on each round including multi platform ?

    Prizes will be announced at a later date.

    I think Atho means it would be great if the event wouldn't show up in the list until it really starts. That way you couldn't build a setup and/or practice weeks in advance.

    That's right, last year we can go on the community event see the track and come back to hotlap mode to see what car will be used.

    Thank you !

    To be clear, is it possible for a driver to made the two series or he have to choose one ?

    Ah I see. Unfortunately, that isn't possible at the moment.

    However, the situation is the same for all of the teams and drivers, so in most cases any advantages gained from early practice will be minimal as everyone should be able to practice should they choose to do so.

    Yes, teams and drivers can compete in both the Fixed Series and the Open Series. Teams that want to do this need to submit separate registration forms for each Series.

    A driver can race in the Fixed Series & the Open Series at the same time - on Console or PC in both Series - as long as they have been registered for both Series before April 1.
