TCR ideas

Post by Flyin Mikey J on Sun Mar 16, 2014 6:15 pm

Here is a great spot to run past our members any TCR ideas before they go to application. The idea here is to go into TCR App with a great shot at approval... so there is a good chance that your initial idea would see some suggested changes, but mostly for the purpose of getting it approved at TORA.

One thing to keep in mind is Thursday would be a prime day to get approval for.

I remember what you had in mind for that, and my biggest concern was the amount of different cars all at different PI.

My suggestion is to whittle that down to the five-eight most relevant models, and use a set PI, with standard HP/weight limits for all.

I really think that if it was simplified to TORA standards, it would be a win for you mate. There has been an underlying murmur calling for a vintage touring series, and that would fit the bill.

Old Fashioned DTM. With the Alfa Romeo 155, Ford Serria Cosworth, BMW and Mercedes. All the cars are late 80's early 90's and have RWD Conversions. I say 400 hp max with The Alfa running the Alfa Race Splitter and wing and the Mercedes only needs the Forza front aero. Now the BMW and Ford need both Forza Aero kits. Reason I suggest this is because I had an idea for a starter series for my DTM League called the DTM Lites.

if it's any consolation, all the cars are balanced, VM use them in their classics series which is really well balanced

Windcharger, if you add in the early Skyline and Lotus Carlton (same as Holden Commodore of that era) I think you'd have what would work for Erebus' 1992 Australian Touring Cars idea.

Erebus, the balancing-via-different PI is the VM way... and other than GT, I haven't seen that done much at TORA. Not saying it isn't proper, just seems a bit "complicated" to some.

Both of your ideas are so close in concept that smashing them together into one would be great.

Are there TCR series with DLC cars?
I was thinking of a 'green' thing. The Tesla Roadster?

JRacer, I had thought that too, and have built a Tesla Spec Car. They try not to do DLC Spec Cups, but the Tesla was a free car so I think its possible.

The torque curve on it is astounding Wink

Any chance of season 2 of sports classics on a Thursday?

Darren, you know that 'new' racing site we were talking about... I think Sport Classics and Vintage Trans Am may well pop up over there straight off Wink

Only thing is, would Mondays work? Thought is Sport Classics at 8PM BST, Trans Am 9PM US Eastern

My parents are divorced and annoyingly at the moment I'm not allowed to decide where I am and when. My parents decide that. I only have an Xbox at my mums so if I'm at my dads I can't race which is Monday, Wednesday, Friday and during the day Saturday. It seems really stupid but that's just how it is.

I thought it would have been the other way round to be honest shocked your dad doesn't have a xbox for you to use.

You get to choose when your 16 right?
