OTL GT3 Series Season 11 is here! We move on from one of our most competitive seasons yet and the new season is due to start at the beginning of April for another challenging six week calendar.

Please note that this league is on Thursday evenings.

If you haven’t taken part in a previous OTL league you must successfully complete an evaluation race. Two evaluation races normally run two weeks prior to the season start.

We hope to see new people racing with us, as well as many regulars. To get involved please join the OTL discord at https://otlracing.com/discord. The championship is limited to 50 drivers.

REGISTRATION

Selected drivers from the previous season have been invited early to the championship however the rest of the signups are public and are dealt with on a first come first served basis. The are also 10 reserve spots available where if a driver fails to complete an evaluation race or signs out of the championship they will get a full spot.

We will class drivers into Pro and Am categories. We will categorise drivers based on a hotstint qualification server and from their performances in the evaluation races. Details of the qualification server will be available in our discord just before the first evaluation race.

Drivers are not permitted to make changes to their submitted custom livery once the championship starts.

Races will be live streamed on Twitch and custom liveries can be shared through a google form on discord for the stream broadcaster to run.

Any politically charged or potentially offensive material on a custom livery will see the team banned from the series.

When uploading your livery through the google form we require that:

It is important to notify us if you can attend each round. If you cannot attend a race you can simply click the “WITHDRAW” button in the races page of the championship on The Sim Grid website under the admin tab of the specific round. If you don’t attend a race without withdrawing you will receive penalty points that carry over in to other championships and can potentially get you DSQ from the championship.
