Welcome to the 3D Speed Fall Series – 2021
3D Speed returns on Wednesday nights with more GT3 action in Assetto Corsa Competizione.
It’s a lot of the same from the Spring Series which wrapped up in July, 2021.
Many of the same tracks with Monza, Imola, Silverstone, Spa and Kyalami returning to the Championship along with a new addition from Japan in perhaps the most storied Asian track, Suzuka.
As in the past there are a couple of different trophies will be awarded come seasons end:
Overall Cup – All drivers are eligible and will go to the highest scoring driver
Silver Cup – Drivers who hold an ESR Silver Rating will score Silver Points with the top performer earning the Silver Cup
Bronze Cup – Same as the Silver Cup but for ESR Drivers with a Bronze Rating
Teams Cup – Teams of up to 4 drivers may compete for the Teams Trophy over the course of the season (Certain rules outline what ratings can make up a team (see rules page))
|The Simulation:||Assetto Corsa Competizione|
|The Race Length:||40 Minutes|
|Practice Start Time:||20:00 Eastern|
|Sessions:||60 minute practice / 30 minute qualifying / 40 minute race|
What is the Simulator?
This series will use Assetto Corsa Competizione by Kunos. While it suffers from a narrow content base, what it does, it does AMAZINGLY well. It is the premier GT racing game and is developed in conjunction with the real-life motorsports organizer, SRO.
Which cars are we driving?
We are running the ubiquitous GT3 car class. This class features cars from pretty much any manufacturer you can think of, from Honda to Ferrari they are all here. The mystique of the Porsche 911. The mass of the Bentley Continental. The workmanlike nature of the Nissan GT-R. The grill of the Mercedes AMG. Also joining are the Audi Revolution Team.
Where are we racing?
We’ll be headed to some of the best tracks in Europe, North America and Africa again this season.
When are we racing?
We race every Wednesday with a practice round followed by an official round the following week. Everything kicks off at 20:00 Eastern (8 PM) and runs for slightly over 2 hours.
How to join
Unfortunately due some of the aspects to our servers we do not allow the RaceApp Self Service option. Please contact @Meodread#3226 on the ESR discord server to join the series. You will need to have your car model, livery and car number ready to complete your entry as well as any team arrangements.
Custom liveries are permitted this season however they must be limited to 240 KB in size and are reserved for drivers that arrive before qualifying normally to avoid disruption of the server.
|Maximum Number of Drivers per Team||4|
|Total Number of Driver “Points” Allowed (see below)||2 Driver Teams may have 6, 3 Driver teams 8 and 4 Driver Teams 9|
|Total Scoring Drivers||ALL|
ESR assigns a rating to all of our drivers from the Cream-of-the-Crop “Aliens” as Platinum, to the new and inexperienced sim racers as Bronze. For these teams a Platinum Driver costs 4 Points, a Gold costs 3, a Silver costs 2 and a Bronze Driver costs 1. This means a 2 car team can be made up a Plat/Silver combo or a Gold/Gold combo (or lesser point totals).
3D Speed has 3 entry types for the coming season:
-Pro Entry which is a driver who is of Platinum or Gold Rating within ESR and is only eligible for the Overall Championship.
-Silver Entry which is a driver who is of Silver Rating and is eligible for the Overall Championship and the Silver Cup.
-AM Entry which is a driver who is of Bronze Rating and is eligible for the Overall Championship and AM cup.
