SCARTS Turbocharged Series - NEXT RACE: Dec 12, 3pm ET GMT+5

Hey guys! SCARTS has currently been upgrading several racetracks in preparation for a new 8-race Cup utilizing tire wear.

Shyguy1001 has paired up with me to design a realistic tire wear combination to enhance race strategy in SCARTS. Long races will have more purpose now to learn what your car does at various fuel/damage levels and to figure out the optimal setting to make a run for the checkers when it counts.

The driving lines in the turns now also affect the rate the car damages. The lower line you run in the turns, the tires take more aggression and will wear faster, which in turn will slow your car quicker. If you want to conserve tires, you may want to run a higher line in the turns, as physically, you are making a wider arc which lets the tires take less stress.

This technique will add a ton of strategy and will influence drivers to race various lines instead of one 'lap wanking' line to promote more passing and side by side racing, the way oval racing should be.

We will race at eight tracks: Phoenix, Bristol, Daytona, Homestead, Infineon (road course), Dover, Charlotte, and Indianapolis. The format for the championship is as follows:

-Points Structure-
The best six of eight races will count towards the Turbocharged Series championship.

Basically, as long as you race six races, you have a chance to win the title. Any additional races you run, if you finish any higher than your worst finish, you can replace that with your latest finish to gain back some points. The driver who scores the most points will win the Turbocharged Series title.

Racetimes will be announced officially on here, but are up for vote on our new forum a week before so you can get your say in on when to race. So check regularly.

To get an idea what the racing is like, here is a highlights video of our tyre wear test at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Sorry about the laggyness of the recording, I will make sure to get a server recording next time.

If you don't have much time, have a watch of the final 5 minutes or so.. great strategy in play as we see fsv on old tyres trying to hold off the leaders. There was plenty of 3 wide racing and with only 6 cars this was a half pack race, think of what it would be like if we got a full pack! Enjoy :)

Yup 8 core PC actually :P

The laggyness is due to the recording itself, as I was server host but forgot to take a video, so it was Burnouts video. I will remember this time :) Cheers.

Hmmm.. As I will probs be server host I will try and get things hurried along, hopefully Practice will start bang on 22:00, qualifying will take about ten minutes so race should start at about 22:30

The last race lasted an hour and was 100 laps of a longer course so.. 1 hour and a quarter is my estimate, depends on how clean the racing is and how many yellow's there are. We will shorten the race if it looks like lasting until 12:00 however, it must finish before then because Burnout has rehearsals.

Oh and Pingu if you do come use the #42 car, be my team mate :)

Leaving halfway through would still give you some championship points, there is a certain % of the race you have to complete to get full points, but you can race to halfway and try to be the halfway leader (picking up the bonus points for that). It really does depend, the raw racing part should take about 38-40 minutes, then added time for cautions, maybe an hour. So half eleven. But it could be more or less than that.
