OPCRS6.jpg

Welcome everyone to Season 6 of the Official PlayStation Community Racing Championship.

 

Last season was eventful and fun. With some really close racing and some surprising but welcome results. Hopefully Season 6 will replicate the best of the previous seasons. With something for everyone. Fast, and slower cars. The return of tuning for the Feature races. And you'll have a teammate to share set-ups with. Season 6 will be a shorter than usual championship. With the festive season approaching. Hopefully this doesn't become hellish, for Hallowe'en this month.

 

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.

 

Teams will be announced during a live stream on Monday the 22nd of October.

 

Let's have a good championship.

There better be some more drivers signing up. Because right now, it's borderline getting cancelled. No point in doing teams with this many. And the whole design of reverse grid sprint race is wasted on a small grid.

 

Not exactly sure why the lack of interest. Except I must take the blame. Being the host.

It’s a busy time of year game-wise. I know personally, I haven’t got time to play everything so have to choose, racing takes up a fair amount of time and unless I want to mess up everyone’s race including my own I’ll need practice.

 

It is fun, I’ve really enjoyed racing with you guys and was hoping to jump back in in the future, it’s certainly not your fault that I haven’t joined up this season.

 

I blame my wife and child 😬

I'd blame @gus72 and Destiny 😜

 

Time might be an issue for me ok these ones so was going to go in as a reserve. 

 

Not overly into way the gr2 physics work, and the setups I struggle with finding too. 

I'm more in it for the fun of racing with people and it tends to space it out a bit more for me. Time for setups and doing race runs will be tight for me too 🤦🏻‍♂️

 

I'll go in as a reserve though if numbers are needed

 I think there's no helping us on this season. I put a tweet out and got the most random response directed at somebody called "James" 😶

I'm trying mate, I'm trying.

 

At the moment I'm literally moving home from one side of Aus. to the other, and things are still all in boxes.

But I think I have a plan that can get me running for this week.

(No clue about next week, but one week at a time at this stage)

 

I'm working on it.

Well we have 8 on the grid. Which is just barely enough to go ahead with the championship. It's still a bit rubbish for the sprint race format. Ah well.

 

As a result of the low numbers (hopefully it's just this, and not future championships too). There's no point in drawing teams. So no need to view my stream this evening for a live draw of teams. As it's not happening.

 

Hopefully get a few more drivers on the grid before Thursday. And will see you then for some racing.

Well I've given it one last push. Although nobody from PlayStation seems interested in giving it a shout-out for me. So lucky you

I wasn't going to say anything until I had a better idea about my chances of joining in.

But feeling semi-confident that I can get a gaming setup and internet access good enough for racing for the first race.

I was out of this one with a flared up nerve issue in my tooth.

Painkillers pretty much knocked me out afterwards anyway.

Still not sure what's going to happen with this season in general though, and also need to book in a tooth extraction at somepoint. 🤷🏻‍♂️
