Thank you for sharing with all of us this opportunity to bring Gran Turismo communities closer then ever before!
"All of us" means forums that have already joined and others that might come later.

This Championship belongs to all forums, because forum that wins this - gets to organize it for next time and chose any cars, tracks or regulations they like.
But only twice in total, then they must wait until all other forums get a chance to organize this Championship at least once! Only then forums that already organized this before, can do that again. 

Because first goal is to bring GT communities closer together and help in much better exchange of ideas and perspectives between all of us

Link to GTSurgeons Fair Play rules   (

List of main stewards:
PhaedrusSocrates (aka “Fedro, not Ferdo!” ;D )

List of additional stewards:
(Any participants from Surgeons and other forums who also agree to act as stewards)

To accomodate possibility of multiple lounges/divisions, foundation will be simple spread of 1 point difference from bottom to top of ALL drivers that participated.
But TOP POSITIONS in each division will receive addition of 4,9% (for 3rd.), 10% (2nd.) and 20% (1st.) on top of their basic score. And add +2pts for victory in any division.
NOTE: values will be rounded up or down, meaning 16,5=17pts, or 19,2=19pts

Simulation of score sheats in case of multiple divisions

In case we do just one room, look at example #1, and so on...

This was the only way found (so far, at least) that is Flexible regarding fluctuating number of participants.
But at same time Fair to drivers in lower divisions in case we have (let say) 20 drivers and split them in 2rooms*10 drivers.
Points would go then from 1 to 20 - with additional bonuses for top 3 finishers in BOTH ROOMS.

In case of FIXED scoring there could be enormous gap in points between in div1. and winner in div2... this way points can be distibuted much more fairly totaly regardless of that.

- Since there is no way to make Z06 and GT competitive to other cars - in first 4 races THEY will not be available, and in last 2 races only Z06 and GT will be available.
- 2D will have to take additional weight aboard, but will remain fastest anyway.

Will be done during 15’ of Free run prior to RACE.
If it looks like qualifications are not functioning – one of the organizers will first record his own “best lap time” then leave the track to enter “Watch Race” where he will record the times of all other participants.
Then the track will be reset, and organizer will call participants to enter the track in order he recorded previously. Participants will only leave the pits and park after the FIRST CORNER in that order. When all participants enter the track, organizer will START the race.

Qualifications are run only just before the race, because there just might be too many participants… one day I mean, not here, now…
But, instead of turning to qualys to determine divisions for each week – in each “division” there are “floating positions”.
Example - we have 3 rooms. In room A last 4 positions (from previous race) will have to drive in room B for next race.
Top 4 positions from room B move up to room A. But last 4 will drop into room C for the next race…
Important, CLEAN DRIVERS (without penalties or damages), will have advantage over “dirty” ones! (If someone’s points for 8th position+bonus points equal more then another drivers 4th position without bonus points).
Late arrivals will have to start from last division, there’s no other way.
Well, maybe when it comes to new forum that brings more than couple of participants – we might extend possibility to instantly place ONE driver in each division/room, and the rest would start from back?

Race Length:
45-50 minutes.

In case of disconnection during the race:
Disconnected participant will be awarded last position. If more then one participant gets disconnected, they will be placed according to order of their disconnection.

- if someone causes damage to another driver for the second time during season, penalty is starting from back of the grid in the next race. If driver can prove to have been affected by circumstances beyond his normal control, he will not receive this penalty.
- if someone causes damage to another driver for the third time during season, it means starting from the back of the grid until the end of the championship.

But penalty for causing damage DURING FIRST LAP means starting from the back in the next race. Twice means starting from the back entire season. Third time means leaving the curent championship...

Additional Bonuses:
- additional x* points bonus for completing the race without causing damage to other drivers. If a driver can prove that he was affected by circumstances beyond his normal control, then he also receives this bonus.
- additional x* points bonus for finishing the race without any penalties. It will be awarded in case when another participant forced you to earn penalty. If driver can prove that he was affected by circumstances beyond his normal control, then he also receives this bonus.
If driver (A) causes another driver (B) to commit penalty - then driver A loses bonus, driver B keeps it ;)

*Actual amouts, for EACH bonus, are 10% of points for victory in "division 1", so that always depends on how many rooms/divisions will be needed for all participants)

NOBODY GETS BONUSES AUTOMATICALY – everyone must claim, after race, in THIS thread (no pm’s) that they deserved particular bonuses. If another participant disagrees then they MUST USE PM’s to inform organizers witch drivers failed to earn them.

- for any critical disregard towards Fair Play rules, and their spirit, driver can be penalized with starting from the back of the grid once, or until the end, or he can be disqualified from the entire championship.

TRACKS: to be decided (my vote is for real life tracks :) )
TIRES: to be decided
