Welcome to The DriverSports World Series, brought to you by the TPRA. This trial event will replicate the Bathurst 12hr race by running the 2013 Nissan NISMO GT-R GT3s on Mt. Panorama for a total of 3 hours.

This event will be one week removed from the real world event, Saturday February 14th, and will run one quarter the length of the real race, which is 3 hours. To allow for driver changes, and to simulate the regrouping that happens under yellow flags the race will be segmented in to 4 separate timed races of varying length. Drivers can team up to tackle the race or they can run the entire 3 hours alone.

This is a trial event for The DriverSports World Series.

General Rules and Regulations:

  • The Sporting Drivers Code
  • A PSN Text Chat will be opened for use as the official race communication channel. This is where hosts will coordinate the start of each race and also where drivers will announce their driver changes.
  • Team members must run identical cars with the same number and colors.
  • When making a driver change drivers must inform the host of who will be driving for the team in the upcoming segment.
  • The first grid will be determined by a 10 minute qualifying session, and subsequent races will be set to the previous race results. Teams who made driver changes should be placed at the rear of the field.
  • Final scoring will be based on total number of laps completed, then the finishing order of the final race.
