Real-Life-IV-1024x576.jpg

The Real Life Tracks night is back after a long break for part IV on Wednesday 18th September at 19:00 UTC (20:00 BST) on PS4!

The Van Society are hosting another night of racing using the best GTA Real Life Tracks from FR_Player-One's Real Life Tracks thread and the best from elsewhere on Social Club. We will have a few new creations to add to the Playlist this time around due to the time since the last event.

This event will be open to all RSCnet members so sign up and get involved.

Meet up and Qualifying

We will start with a quick meet up in Los Santos in our cars before the racing begins. The first race of the night will be 'qualifying' on the Top Gear Test Track, this will be run non-contact with drivers vying for the best lap time to get pole and decide grid positions in future races. From here a playlist with contact races of the best Real Life Tracks will be launched.

At the start of every race we will re-arrange the grid based on qualifying. Players will also be put into groups of 4, these groups/classes will be based on speed around the Top Gear track and vehicle choice. Please familiarise yourself with this track, your qualifying time here will be crucial on matching your ability and choice of car with drivers of a similar skill level.

Bookmark and practice the track in your choice of car via the link below…

The Racing

We will start then night racing 'contact' but if poor racing etiquette is displayed, or if people start b*tching we will switch to non-contact or kick offending drivers. We expect clean racing on the night (this is not a 'GTA Race' free for all) we all appreciate the tracks created and want to race around them, not play bumper cars.

If you like to spin people out, try and squeeze two cars into a corner that can only fit one or use other cars as braking barriers or like to exact 'revenge moves' then do not sign up.

Curb Boosting

Curb boosting is also a big no no. Hitting the curbs/rumble str*p on the racing line (entry/apex/exit of corners) is fine however weaving on the the rumble str*p, surfing the rumble str*p on straights and ignoring the racing line to hit a curb are things we do not want to see, warnings will be handed out for this. See the diagram in the spoiler below for an example.

Basic Racing Rules

  • The first corner is crucial, do not attempt crazy overtakes here, just get round it safely.
  • If you are responsible for spinning out another player, wait for them to recover before continuing to race.
  • Do not PIT other racers.
  • Do not ram other racers.
  • Do not dive bomb other racers.
  • Do not bob and weave on straights.
  • No curb boosting unless part of the natural racing line.
  • Failure to adhere to the rules will result in a warning followed by being kicked for repeat offending.

Your Car

We will run all races in Sports Class and you will race the same car in each race (each player must pick a different car). This will give different racers advantages on some tracks and disadvantages on others. It will also make it a whole lot easier to remember who is who as the night goes on. All cars can be fully modded (no off-road tyres though) and we have banned the most OP cars from the class to even the playing field slightly.

Do not be afraid to pick a slower 'personal favourite' car as we will split the racers into groups depending on speed and you will be competing against players of a similar speed in your group as well as the rest of the field.

The Pariah, Itali GTO, Neo, Comet SR, Issi Sport and Paragon are all banned. The Locust & Jugular are under review.

I'll join but will almost certainly not be able to make the start time. So if it's OK joining late I will let others choose their cars first and decide from what's left the day before. I think you can safely put me in the slowest group. I can make a car choice that ensures that if necessary.

@JuniorChubb we're not having a XDBX PL next Wednesday, as you may have guessed, so people can join this. I will make it clear you have sign up and read the rules here.

Sounds fun, I'll try to be there. Won't pick a car yet, will decide which to use a day or two before if that's OK.

@Protocawl @djw180

Thanks for signing up guys. I have out you both on the reserves list until you pick your cars.

DJ, I trust your judgement on picking a slower car for Group D. However I would prefer players to be there for qualifying as it is an integral part of the night. The event is limited to 16 players and I will have a dilemma if I have players who can make it to qualifying can’t join the event due to numbers.

I am considering upping the limit to 20 players, but did not really account for 20 players when outlining the plan and available cars etc. Let’s see how it pans out between now and next week. 👍

Thanks @JuniorChubb. I had the Sultan in mind, if I can make it, it will be nice to have a reason to drive that. Of course if the event is full for qualifying then I'll have to miss out, not a problem. Whether I'm there for an 8pm start is kind of out of my hands, but I shall see if I can come up with something and sign up properly if I can.
