    After a successful season 1 on GTS (Season 8 for OCAU) with GR4 cars, its time to get back into GT-Sport with a new season.

    OCAU has a fairly long history racing (on Sony consoles), starting in 2015 with mr_mordred2095 in season 1, followed by The Beast for Season 2 and finally under myself for the remainder of the seasons, some 7 championships in total, including JGTC and Historic events, with a great turn out, and much fun to be had.

    This season will incorporate GR3 - or GT3 cars.


    We have a Discord channel for shit talk and racing. Its easier to communicate through voice rather than using the controller. https://discord.gg/hEUm9q3 Please note this channel is NOT REGULATED - IF you are UNDER 18 - please make a race official aware of this to make the channel more PG friendly!

    If you feel you should be included in the official list, please PM myself, or the above people for a chat.


    There will need to be some testing on car suitability for the upcoming season, So I will require some help in testing, and also feedback on rules and regulations - So if you think you can help, please let me know so I can organize some times to have people online together for some testing. I will be PMing previous OCAU racers for assistance.

    Race time will likely be Tuesdays starting 10:00 PM AEST. Daylight savings is ignored.

    Tracklist will be decided on the racers, given the previous seasons, I'm pretty sure the list will be something like this. Please note, this is a copy paste from previous seasons. I'm hoping to get online and check out the available tracks shortly.

    Round 1 Monza - Double Sprint Race Format
    Round 2 Nurburgring GP - 150km? Race (Moderate Length) Shoot out
    Round 3 Interlagos - 150km Race (Moderate Length)
    Round 4 Brands Hatch GP - Double Sprint Race
    Round 5 Mt Panorama - Endurance Length 1hr+lap Shoot out
    Round 6 Suzuka - 300km Race Enduro
    Round 7 Dragon Trail Gardens (Fake WillowBank) - Double Sprint Race Shootout
    Round 8 Blue Bay Infield A - Double Sprint Race
    Round 9 Maggiore East - 100km Race
    Round 10 Monza No Chicane - 150km Race Length Shoot out
    Round 11 Suzuka - 150km Shoot out
    Round 12 Mt Panorama - 300km Race Grand Finale

    I personally want to push for a 12 race season, but this will come down to what everyone as a group wants.

    2 Round drop.

    Livery +2 Points for most liked livery - per round

    We will likely decide race results for the season by dropping the worst 2 rounds of every racer. This attempts to help those of us who have to work, or miss a race, or even if we just have a bad race.

    So, If you are interested in racing with people who care about clean racing, please speak up and get your name down!

    Race start 09.04.18
    9pm AEST race start

    I can't find any info that Grand Valley will be included in the game. Kaz is working on Deep Forest though.

    I thought we agreed to ditch Brands Hatch as well? I think everyone just had a shit race last season :p

    Personally I like Brands Hatch although I can see why others hate it.

    I think we should definitely include Monza though, perhaps in replacement of Brands Hatch.

    not a bad schedule, perhaps we should have a short sprint format 6-10 lap bathurst near the start for practice.

    count me in mate
