Deutsche Post 100 GT4 League announced for GT Sport

NEWS JUST IN!!!!! Racestation are excited to announce the creation of the Deutsche Post 100 GT4 League. After the enjoyment of the Toyota S-FR Trophy, we are hoping the introduction of this championship will produce close exciting racing throughout the field. Thorough testing has taken place to ensure the cars available are the closest group of cars that don’t have a stand out advantage. We are very confident that this league will be very popular and that the racing will be close and intense but clean and fair.

The races will take place on the normal GT Sport slot of 8pm every Thursday. The championship will last 10 weeks. All races will be set to a distance of 100 miles, with a 20 minute qualifying.

18 cars will be available to choose from. However, each car can only be used by a maximum of 2 different teams, so once a car is chosen by 2 different teams, it will be removed from the availability list.

The cars to choose from are:

Alfa Romeo 4c Gr.4
Aston Martin Vantage Gr.4
Bugatti Veyron Gr.4
Dodge Viper Gr.4
Ferrari 458 Italia Gr.4
Ford Mustang Gr.4

Points will be issued out to the top 8 in each race, allocated as 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1. There will also be a point issued out for pole position and a further point for fastest lap.

Due to the size of the lobbies on GT Sport, there is only space for 14 drivers and 2 commentators. So the first 14 drivers to sign up will be given priority, anyone else who signs up will be put on a reserve list as an independent driver. That reserve driver will still choose their car of choice, assuming it’s available to pick.

The normal rules and regulations will apply, meaning penalty points can be accumulated.

Please go to the sign up page here to sign up to the league. Please also post the car you intend to use along with car number and your team-mate for the league. You cannot select a car until you have a teammate confirmed. Also please view the forum for all the Rules & Regulations that will be set in the race lobbies for these 10 races.
