After the BTCC championship is concluded, we will be running the Simtek GT3 World Challenge cars following as closely as possible with free tracks the GT3 World Challenge Europe schedule.

A major twist will be to run three championships on the same schedule: Twin Sprint, Sprint and Overall (or a more unique name).

At each of the tracks, we will have the Twin Sprint format one weekend and a one hour (real life race distance) Sprint (no fuel stops) the following weekend. Drivers can race every weekend or every other weekend to be in contention for one to three championships which will help us all balance our racing with other summer activities.

It is probable that we'll elevate the real world simulation level of the Sprint weekends with different times of day for practice, qualifying and race and will at at least one round throw weather into the mix.

The Twin Sprints will maintain our usual format; two 22-25 minute sprint races with fuil inversion for Race 2, practice, qualifying and race all at 15:00 sim track time of day, dry weather, rolling starts.

My expectation is that all of the regulars will participate regardless of what we drive but a theory is that in order to attract new drivers we need to tap into those that are new to sim racing and the cars that interest them which predominantly is going to be current real world championship series. I saw a many new names enter the server when we had the Simtek GT3 cars up while we were in the process of transitioning to rF2, almost certainly more than with any of the other cars.

Part of the plan is to have the GT3 cars on the ESR server from after the BTCC races Sunday night thru Monday night until the end of the BTCC season, by which time two test race weekends and the complete schedule will be posted.

Historic and vintage cars are in ESR's DNA, will not be abandoned and will be up for consideration for whatever follows the GT3 championship after Labor Day weekend with one-off race weekends on the various holidays before then a possibility.

Once the message board is back to normal, I'll start a new forum with the usual car and driver classification, schedule, downloads, etc.

Real world 2020 GT3 World Challenge Europe schedule:

https://www.gt-world-challenge-europe.com/calendar

I momentarily have all of the tracks but need to test. I'll probably deviate from the real world schedule by deciding the track order geographically, shortest travel distance.

In order of 2020 real world:

1. Brands Hatch GP
2. Silverstone (probably International but TBD)
3. Paul Ricard (probably Proto but TBD)
4. Zandvoort
5. Misano
6. Spa Francorchamps
7. Nurburgring GP
8. Hungaroring
9. Barcelona
10. Imola

I know a good Paul Ricard layout for rFactor2, by carrera4, it is the 1988 layout!

Thanks, Eric.

I am away from my game PC but I believe that the one that we used with rFactor (HTTT) is in Steam Workshop and on my game PC but hasn't been installed on the server yet. Less likely to use a 1988 layout with current cars...

I have the Simtek GT3 cars @ Watkins Glen on the server now.

I am open to changing to another track when I can. I went with The Glen because it's on Steam, is a short lap, simple and the cars can stretch their legs a little.

I prefer that any alternative be a Steam track to simplify with our current forum issues.

Nice to see you, Brian.

We are on Round 7 of 10 of the BTCC championship so the server is accordingly set to the BTCC cars and Brands Hatch.

http://forum.efnetsimracing.com/viewforum.php?f=100

Going forward, we'll have the Simtek GT3s on Mondays and Fridays until the conclusion of BTCC.

The BTCC cars aren't as sexy as the GT3s but race very well and have been teaching us much about tire management.

Monza, although cancelled, would have been the first race.

I can't recall whether another track was substituted to whether it went from 11 to rounds.

10 rounds fits better for us but for the sake of realism, let's keep Monza as an alternative in case one of the tracks doesn't work. A few drivers had disconnect issues at Brands Hatch with BTCC, for example...

I have all of the tracks now:

Barcellona RaceRfactor v1.79

Brianza v1.7
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1afg7QNVdXMxm7M3r1aaAkZIWF35WPAdu/view?usp=sharing

The RaceRfactor version of Monza has issues with shadows and road reflections. Turning shadows down to low is a fix, I haven't experimented with reflections.

Brianza v1.7 doesn't have those issues but I like the RaceRfactor curbs and the paved runoff at Parabolica a little better for our purposes.
