Hi there! Welcome to The grand tour-not so fast less so furious edition. The spot where commuter cars turn into racers.
This event will be based around the Gran Turismo race series, so, the idea is to make a racing car based around a mass production model that’s available to the public. In other words, the GT version and the production version of the car share the same chassis
The challenge will be divided into 3 sections, evaluating the production model and then the evaluation of the gran turismo variant of said vehicle.
A third evaluation will consist on rating the lore and backstory of a car(both GT and production variants) the history of its company and its racing team(if any).
Mods are allowed, however, when you send your cars, remember to state which mods were used.
let’s start with the production model.
-Engine must run on premium fuel type
-Material cost cannot exceed 9000$
-Engineering time and production units limit of 135
-At least a 40 in safety and drivability. At least 30 in comfort and practicality. Max 30 noise
-Front lights and braking lights. Indicators at the front and back
-Door handles, wing mirrors and windshield wipers
-Car needs a minimun of 100 market competitiveness in any market in Gasmea
-Engine max 50 production units / 150 engineering time
-vehicle must have a three-way catalytic converter
Cars in this category will be judged around their drivability and looks. the better looking and the more marketable a car is, the more points it will accumulate. Drivability will be also tested, a more drivable car means a better score. Everyday use will also be judged, taking into account all major stats(drivability, sportiness, comfort, prestige and safety) along with practicality and fuel economy. the score in each category goes from 1 to 10. These 3 being Aspect, Everyday use and drivability.
GT cars should be based on the production model that was used for the previous category
-Engine must run on ultimate fuel type
-Material cost cannot exceed 22500$
-Engineering time and production units limit of 260
-Safety should be “none”, we’ll take care of that for ya.
-Chassis, panels, suspension type and Drive type should be the same between the GT version and the production version of the car. The same applies to the trim body. Tunning of these parameters is allowed.
-Engine size is 2.0L turbo, or 3.5L N/A any configuration. max 85 production units / 185 engineering time
-Max tire width is 250 mm
-Max brake size 375 mm
-A race look is encouraged, liveries more than welcome
The looks of the car will be evaluated, a better looking car will help you grab the overall winner spot, but it will not directly impact the GT race times. The race will be a 8 lap race that takes place in the automation test track, after evaluating the time it will take the car to complete the 8 laps, modifiers will be applied according to the following.
-Drivability: The more drivable a car is, the less of a time penalty due to driver errors.
-Fuel: Extra weight will be added to the car, according how much fuel is needed to complete the race.
-Reliability: The more reliable a car is, the smaller the chance that it will suffer a failure during the race, a car that breaks down during a race will have a significant time penalty applied to it.
The winner of this section will be determined entirely by the time they scored in the race.
This section will take how well the car performed in the previous 2 challenges, along with an additional factor, to consider the overall winner of the challenge.
Things in consideration are:
-Score in the production variant challenge 35%
-Position in the GT variant challenge 35%
-Lore of the company, racing team and liveries of the car 30%
(Small explanation regarding lore rating. Judgement will not be that strict, I will just apply basic literary criteria, like avoid repeating words, for example. Just try to describe your team, maybe the car, maybe the company, do whatever you feel will be interesting to read.)
Evaluations for the production model will be done first. Once said evaluation is done, the GT evaluations will be performed along with the overall winners being announced.
Message me the production car along with its GT version that you wish to present, make sure to include your automation name in the trim of both models. If there are any problems with the car, I’ll inform you.
Submissions are open, rather than a set deadline, I’ll wait till we have enough teams to make an interesting race, once I get enough, I’ll set deadline so people who have not entered yet have enough time to make their cars.
Good luck and please enjoy the challenge, if you have any questions or problems, don’t be afraid to DM me here or in discord
