    Thought it was about time we gave this beastie an outing, the tuners favourite. The Honda Civic.​

    This series will be run a little differently than the others. Qualifying will be for the first race only for 10 minutes only. After that it will be a reverse grid determined by Championship position.

    Each race the car will have 40 litres of fuel, so pit stops will be needed. The exception will be the final race which will be a 1 hour one off.

    Right, here's the details.

    Honda Civic Type R '15 BHP 336 WT 1,200kg

    Lobby opens for practice 8pm UK time

    Races will start @8:15pm

    I think race medium tires are need for this car and the bhp what do you guys think?

    Not driven the car Jason so cant really judge but would think being FWD mediums might help grip coming out of corners is that what your thinking. but its Steves baby.

    You can control the exit with the throttle its more of the entry.

    Wanted to keep the race hards as I felt the greater braking distance needed may make for some more passing opportunities.

    O.P. updated.

    Thanks for your help Jason.:)

    Looks great Steve!

    Civic at Le Mans looks fun. Total draft fest. 3 wide down straight, 8 lead changes from corner to corner.

    Can’t wait!

  12. Are we still doing the qualifier or holding back on that until we have full seasons planned?

    To be honest Jim I think there redundant to be honest. I used them back in the day to work out how to split the lobbies up. That's when we had over 20 drivers.

    Hi Craig welcome aboard and look forward to seeing you on track.

    Send me a friend request and I will pick it up before Thursday,

    Thursdays tend to be a test night trying different cars or practise and setting up for Sunday nights that are normally actual organised events. Due to the time of year a few club members are on holiday so won’t be many on line this Thursday or Sunday so will be practising in the Civic, I normally open the room app. 19.30 hrs but what ever happens it’s regular on those two nights, if you have a mic we are on party chat as well..

    Always look for a room that will have GBRC in the title ie GBRC Civic test or something like that.

    Welcome Craig,

    Motor_Head51 here, I hail from across the pond so Thursday’s are usually ano show for me. Hopefully see you in lobby soon on Sundays though!

  18. Hi Craig, glad you found your way to the forums.
    Just a quick heads up about how we work and what the club is built on.
    (Without pointing you to the rules etc.)
    Basically the club was founded with the intention of creating some mature minded clean racing (god knows why Nigel is still here then...).
    On track pretty all effort is put into avoiding contact with other drivers, we all know that contact will occur and rubbing is racing etc., but minimal contact is prefered and especially contact hard enough to change someone elses balance of their car/driving line.
    If you do happen to hit someone hard enough to push them off track or off line enough to mess up their line/osition etc., we just ask that you hold back and allow them to re-pass you on track as soon as possible.
    Track limits we use are two wheels on track at all times, although in most cases we count rumble strip as track, but it does vary from track to track occasionally.
    Other than that dig in, join in and have fun on track.
    Any questions never hesitate to ask, either on here or in the lobby, everyone here is willing to help.

    You might regret saying that Jim when I grow up :rolleyes:

    Well put Jim on the race ethics

    Hi Jim,

    Thank you very much for this! i am glad i have found people that actually want to clean drive!

    Playing GT Sport online is great but people just dont respect the no contact and just ram you off the track which is just crap! but i will apologies now for any contact caused :p
