NZiRL 7: GT3 Challenge Series

Post by Bull » Sun Jun 27, 2021 5:36 pm


It is a bit of an inevitable event really - at some point, everyone races GT3. And at some point, every community will run a GT3 series. Well, it is our turn to join in on the fun, as we present to you our GT3 Challenge Series!

iRacing's GT3 class has graduated to 8 great, variable but even cars with Manufacturers from across the globe. Following iRacing's official fixed setup series, we look to bring a taste of that variety to Kiwi Sim Racing and along with it some great, hard fought racing. Which manufacturer will stand on top at the end of the season?

NOTE: As of this season we will be re-introducing our Kiwi Sim Racing Crash Committee - Nothing to fear, it just means we will be reviewing races looking at any intentional or poor driving and may issue warnings or penalties as we see fit. We aren't here to ruin the enjoyment or fun of racing, just to ensure everyone is having a fun bite of the cherry.

To Join the league, you can find us either on the member website under leagues, or in the UI, under leagues, as "Kiwi Sim Racing". If that does not work, our League ID is 6915. You should then be able to apply for the league. If you are not accepted within 24 Hours, please message myself (Bull) as sometimes join requests do not come through.

Cars Available:
AMG Mercedes GT3
Audi R8 LMS
Ferrari 488 GT3
Ford GT GT3
Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo
McLaren MP4-12C GT3
Porsche 911R GT3

We will also be enforcing a one car per driver rule this series - this is to stop the car swapping that we see in official races where drivers will jump from car to car finding which one has an edge at each track - you will be required to run the same car for the full season. If you change cars mid-season, your points tally will be reset.
