Welcome everyone to Season 5 of the Official PlayStation Community Racing Championship.

 

Season 4 was a lot of fun with the Gr.3 cars. But for Season 5, we are going old school. Bringing back an old favorite from the Gran Turismo 6 days. And introducing Sprint races. As we also reduce the main Feature race. So that's 2 races each week. Twice as many points on offer.

 

As with all OPC events. The championship is open to all drivers of any skill level. Simple copy & paste the driver list below. And add your name to sign-up for the championship. Pop me a Friend Request on PSN if your not already on my Friends List. And you are good to go.

Apologies for not popping the thread up on Friday as planned. I wanted to try work in Tuning over the weekend. But it just wasn't going to work out with the way the races were set up. SO I would had to have re-done the entire thing.

 

Allowing tuning would mean you could do all the feature races without the need to stop for tyres or fuel. Upping the tyre wear would mean pitting every few laps if on supers. And lengthening the feature race would remove the sprint race. So like I said, I would have to redo everything. There's just no time!

 

We shall go full-on with the settings for season 6.

Oops! I forgot to mention 3 things.

 

Firstly, there's a possibility I may miss the week 3 & 8 races. So can I have a reserve host on standby if needed please?

 

Secondly, I mentioned this in party chat on Thursday. But not everyone was there. You can paint the car however you wish. Any colour. Any design. Go nuts. Although it would be cool to see the OPC Racing decal by PJ5 on them. Please post them in the thread too if you can.

 

And lastly, you may have noticed an invite to some OPC Racing Team thing. That's me preparing for some future things that I will be experimenting with soon. The feature has been there for a year now. Finally getting around to using it.

If I could, I would. But the majority of drivers are UK based and don't get home from work until around 7. So would be difficult for them to make the race. Some even struggle to make the 20:00 lobby open time already.

 

I wish I could accommodate everyone.

Yup yup,

 

Various OPC icons can be found on my shared decals. Follow me or add me if you haven't already and you should find them easy 👍

 

For any newcomers, Here's the quick tutorial vid on how it lines up with the text, but can obviously be put however you want too
