  • TFD PubCup Season 6 - GT-Dingo (GT3)

    Welcome to Season 6 of TFD's Assetto Corsa Championships
    The most anticipated season of the PubCup in it's history. We finally move to full blown GT3 race cars.

    Championship table:

    Rules as follows:

    PRIZES (To Be Finalised):

    Overall Points Champion gets a TS Tag and an etched metal "PubCup" made by Skillet.

    Team Championship Trophy (team decides who it is shipped to).

    Return prizes (such as the trophies) will only be sent to members who have completed one season with TFD before the start of this season and is on TS regularly.


    Series will be run on a closed server but the password will be freely given. Password : tfd
    Occasional races may be opened to the public.

    KissMyRank (KMR) will be used with a performance limit of 200% of fastest lap time (those slower than this will be kicked for 90 seconds - this kick period will be under trial until we get a better idea on how this will all work out). Other KissMyRank penalties/allowances apply as per Post#3 below.

    Ping Kicker Enabled to warn then kick players above 350 Ping (KMR has it's own ping monitor and will be trialed for Round 1 - if it's good enough we will utilise it throughout the series, otherwise we will revert to PingKicker).

    Championship points (and associated ballast) will only apply to those who actively mention their attendance here on our forums and join us on TS. Straight up public players are simply there to buff up the field and if they choose to carry on racing with us then they are welcome to sign up to the forums and note their interest in running in the series proper. Points and ballast will be given based on their latest race result before signing up (if no evidence of result is found then they will have no ballast and points). Return/recognisable Public Players may be honorary championship members and receive BoP as per normal.


    Member drivers can choose to note their particular choice out of the available cars in this thread so that the server car list can be adjusted to help ensure there will be more slots of that car available to choose (to help ensure it will be available in case of being late etc). Members will regardless get preference over public drivers and if no slots remain in their preferred car a public driver will be kicked in their favour.

    It is recommended for people to submit custom paints atleast a week before the championship commences to give us time to distribute these and set them up on the server.

    Car List:
    Audi R8 LMS 2016
    Audi R8 LMS Ultra
    BMW Z4 GT3
    Ferrari 488 GT3
    Lamborghini Huracan GT3
    McLaren 650S GT3
    McLaren MP4-12C GT3
    Mercedes SLS AMG GT3
    Mercedes AMG GT3
    Nissan GT-R GT3
    Porsche 911 GT3R 2016

    Drivers are encouraged to form teams of 2 drivers for a Teams Championship.

    Team Points will be the sum of each driver's points earned.

    Drivers have been separated out into Professional (Pro Class) and Amateur (Am Class) ratings for 2 concurrent teams championships to be run.

    To receive the Pro Class rating; you will have done the following:
    1. Finish in the Top 6 of any previous PubCup Championship
    2. Win a race in any PubCup Championship Race
    3. Score Pole Position in any PubCup Championship Event

    The Pro Class Team Championship is fought between any team with a Pro Class rated driver.
    The Am Class Team Championship is for fully Amateur Rated drivers only (no Pro Class Drivers allowed).

    To see your current rating; refer to the Season 6 Table:

    Championship points will be based on MSNZ's Touring Car points system:
    1 75 2 67
    3 60 4 54
    5 49 6 45
    7 42 8 39
    9 36 10 33
    11 30 12 28
    13 26 14 24
    15 22 16 20
    17 18 18 14
    19 12 20 10
    21 9 22 8
    23 7 24 6
    25 5 26 4
    With 1 point given to Pole Position winner during qualifying.
    2 Points (per race) will be given to the Fastest Lap during that race.

    Points will be awarded on overall position in the race regardless of eligibility for points - so you will have to try and overtake non-member public drivers for additional points. Dual race events/rounds will have points awarded to both races (so potentially 155 points total in one event).

    Drop round points are in effect. Each driver's lowest points scoring event (including zero point rounds) will be deducted from the final count.

    Success ballast/restrictor will be allocated based on championship points.

    All cars on the server will start with0% Restrictor and 0kg Ballast with championship eligible (member) drivers having their restrictor and ballast either removed or adjusted once connected. Once points eligible drivers begin to have ballast and restrictor penalties beyond the public level, the public ballast and restrictor will have the ballast and restrictor values adjusted.

    All ballast and restrictor values are decided on the discretion of the Championship organisers (ie: Me and UncleTim). In the event of a disconnect between sessions and the appropriate ballast or restrictor is unable to be set in time for the start of Race 2, the ballast and restrictor value will remain and no adjustments or protests are allowed after the race. Those seen gaming this system will be punished in a manner deemed suitable by organisers.

    Ballast assignment is done automatically via the Points Table- Maximum Auto Ballast Assignment = 200kg
    Restrictor assignment is done manually as per BoP or Penalty System - Maximum Restrictor Assignment = 100%

    ~~~NEW FOR SEASON 06 AND ON:~~~
    Drivers who have atleast 2 wins in any previous PubCup championship event will receive the following ballast assignments in the event of a missed round of the championship. These "drop round" ballasts are to be kept through the duration of the championship. This is in addition to their normal points based ballast addition.

    1st Round missed = +25kg
    2nd Round missed = +45kg
    3rd and consequent Rounds missed = +60kg

    Any public driver who causes a significant and avoidable incident will be immediately removed from the server. An apology via chat helps but is not a guarantee of staying.

    Any championship driver who does an action (be it incidental or intentional) that is deemed beyond the spirit of the championship will be given penalties based off the severity of the incident.

    Camber values are ideal values for the tyre (though not the recommended setting for the car - ask Tim or Skillet for more info)
    The temperature Min and Max is the range that keeps the tyre at 100% grip capability.
