GTR 70s Championship II

Championship Setup

We host a Main Championship and a Casual Cup.

GTR 70s CASUAL CUP

The GTR 70s CASUAL CUP is meant to be more casual 😉
We hope to attract

  • the Rookies
  • the ones who need some more practice among other drivers but also want a taste of competition
  • the ones who want to have a more casual race
  • the ones who don´t have enough time to practice hours and hours
    The point system is:
    P1 40, P2 37, P3 34, P4 31, P5 30, P5 29, P7 28, … , P25 10, P26 9, P27 8, … P31 4

GTR 70s MAIN CHAMPIONSHIP

The GTR 70s MAIN CHAMPIONSHIPis what we already had.
We expect to have

  • the Aliens
  • the ones who are experienced
  • the drivers who are used to battle on track
    The point system is:
    P1 40, P2 37, P3 34, P4 31, P5 30, P5 29, P7 28, … , P25 10, P26 9, P27 8, … P31 4

We are on the verge to offer 2 good filled grids. But we cannot predict how well the grids will be accepted and how well they will be filled.
The choice in which of the championships you want to compete in is up to you and your self-assessment.
To give others an idea about the possible participation numbers, we would like to ask you to register early in the week.
It also helps to grab one of the 31 available slots.
First come, first served.

Technically it can't be prevented, but we forbid to change the car again after the first lap on the qualifying servers THR4 (Casual Cup) and THR5 (Main Championship).

To be very clear:
If you have driven a lap with a car on a qualifying server, you are not allowed to choose another car on the qualfiying server, nor to choose another car for the race.
We will monitor this and disqualify the driver in case of misbehavior.

Please follow this rule when you sign up for Sunday events:
You need to keep using the same car during the entire season in the Main Events, after you have completed your first lap in that car on the booked qualifying server for a sunday main event (THR 4 and THR 5). The cars have different strengths & weaknesses between the racetracks we visit, and we don't want participants to exploit that.

If you are really struggling with your initial car choice, you will be allowed one (1) chance to update your choice during the season.

We hope for a great start into the championship!

Registration

You have to register for each event (Saturday and Sunday) of the championship.

Cars

We race a selection of well-matched vehicles from the 70s GTR Mod created by Bazza and his team.

The Assetto Legends mod is a modulair platform, containing sports- and touring cars from the 60 's and 70's. This pack contains GT cars mostly from the 70's.

1975 BMW CSL 3.5 IMSA

Right around the birth of Touring car racing, BMW turned a new corner away from the large and expensive V8 engined saloons to smaller and most importantly more affordable four and six cylinder engined cars. Of course the cars were by no means cheap, but it did open a whole new market for the German manufacturer. The new cars engines were also much more suited to motorsport and from 1964 the Munich based manufacturer was present in the ETCC.

The original CSL was conceived to help BMW and companies like Alpina and Schnitzer win the European Touring Car Championship (ETCC). In its first year out, the CSL won the 1973 ETCC and BMW was then motivated to go further with their program. Over the winter, an all new engine known as the M49 was developed with a DOHC setup and 24 valves for the 1974 season. It was increased to 3.5 litres and modified into the M49/2 for Lemans.

Differing in detail from the road car, the racing CSL was ready for action in 1973. During the season, six cylinder engine was increased in size from the initial 3.2 litre to 3.5 litre and the four speed gearbox replaced by a Getrag five speed box. Compared to Alpina's first efforts power was up by 75 bhp and weight down over 150 kg. Fielded foremost by the BMW Works team livered in the now familiar M-colours, but also by Alpina and Schnitzer, the 3.0 CSL fought an epic battle with the Ford Capri throughout the season. At the end of the season, it was Works driver Toine Hezemans who took the driver's title and BMW claimed the manufacturer's crown.

Among all the BMWs using the Coupe Sport Leicht (CSL) name, none is as outrageous as the 1975 IMSA contender featured here. With superwide fender flares and a dazzling paint scheme, it can be ranked among the most visually exciting racecars ever made. It is also one of the most successful of all the CSL programs winning seven IMSA races outright with Hans Stuck taking four wins in 1975.

1972 De Tomaso Pantera

With Alejandro De Tomaso's deeply ingrained love for racing, it was no surprise when a competizione Pantera was unveiled in late 1971. Built to contest the FIA's now legendary Group 4 category, it would most notably go up against factory-built race cars from Ferrari, Porsche and Chevrolet. The starting point was a lightweight Tipo 874A chassis, almost every part of which had been extensively drilled. While a projected weight of around 1100kg had originally been targeted, Porsche were so concerned about the Pantera's arrival that they forced the FIA into homologating the Group 4 version (or GT4) at 1250kg. To overcome this, the car needed a race-spec engine of the highest order. It was eventually decided that Bud Moore-prepared Boss 351 motors would be flown over and installed at Modena. Although De Tomaso quoted around 500bhp for these engines, early cars were typically producing around 440bhp at 7000rpm. This was soon upped to 470bhp for the 1972 Le Mans race.

1974 Ford Capri RS3100

Motor racing success has often proven to be a very powerful marketing tool, so it came as no surprise that Ford announced a racing program soon after the launch of the all new Capri in 1969.

In 1971 the Capri RS was the car to beat in the European Touring Car Championship and it was beaten only once. Jochen Mass took the driver's title, but it was Alfa Romeo who campaigned in a smaller class, that took the manufacturer's title. More competition was expected in 1972 from the newly founded BMW Motorsport team. Driving force behind the new team was Jochen Neerpasch, who had left Ford after the first race of 1972.

For the 1974 season the sport's governing body allowed DOHC heads to be fitted, of which only 100 examples had to be produced. With the help of Cosworth the new 3.4 litre quad-cam V6 engine was developed in 1973. The engine and heads were homologated by a short production run of the Capri RS 3100. Another big modification was the move of the radiators from the nose to the rear wheel arches for weight balance purposes. Performance of the revised Capri increased by quite a bit, with the engine pumping out around 440 - 450 bhp at around mid-season.

1970 Nissan Skyline GTR

The first GT-R Skyline appeared in February 1969. Called the PGC-10 (KPGC-10 for later coupe version) internally and Hakosuka ハコスカ by fans. Hako ハコ means Box in Japanese, and sukaスカ means Skyline スカイライン; Sukairain.

The GT-R began as a sedan, but a 2-door coupe version was introduced in March of 1971. The cars were stripped of unnecessary equipment to be as light as possible for racing, and the cars performed well at the track. The sedan racked up 33 victories in less than two years, and the coupe stretched this to 50 through 1972.

The KPGC-10’s main circuit rival was the Mazda RX-3. By mid-1972 the RX-3 had surpassed the GT-R, ending the winning streak. The GT-R was also a favorite of reckless street racers who roamed the streets at night at that time.

It is claimed that the art of drifting began among Japanese racers when they purposely engaged their emergency brakes as a way to counter understeer on their GT-Rs. One such driver who was known for this was the Drift King Keiichi Tsuchiya.

To enable racing with it's AC Legends competitors, this version of the Skyline 2000 is equiped with a turbo engine delivering 417Nm @ 4000 rpm @ 1 bar of boost pressure. Maximum power is 452hp at 8000rpm.

1974 Porsche 911 RSR

Two decades in the making, Porsche's outright victories had come at a considerable monetary expense. So when the all-conquering 917 was banned at the end of 1971, the German manufacturer's competition department set about create a new 911-based racer. Dubbed the Carrera RSR, the new machine was campaigned by the works team but was also raced and, perhaps more importantly, bought by privateers in large numbers. Continuous development saw the RSR emerge in its definitive 3-litre form at the start of the 1974 season.

As per the regulations, the Carrera RSR 3.0 was built around a production 911 shell. The racer did feature considerably wider wheel arches, a full-width front spoiler, which also housed the oil-cooler and the now legendary 'whale-tail' rear wing. For safety reasons and also adding to the structural rigidity was a full roll-cage constructed from aluminium tubing. The most significant change was the adoption of coil springs for the RSR 3.0, instead of the torsion bars used on previous 911 versions. Mounted underneath the sizeable rear wing was the Type 911/75 flat six. Equipped with twin-spark ignition, the 3-litre engine produced around 315 bhp.

By 1974, the Porsche works team was preoccupied with developing and racing a turbocharged version of the 911, which would ultimately develop into the 934 and 935, so campaigning the new Carrera RSR 3.0 was entrusted to privateers. Among the capable hands running the 911s were Kremer and Gelo in Europe and Brumos in the United States. The well-honed RSR swept all before and dominated the GT class on both sides of the Atlantic, scoring several outright victories on the way.

In addition to the 60-odd RSR 3.0s built in Weissach, numerous customers updated their earlier 911s up to RSR spec. Although production of the naturally aspirated 911 racer ceased in 1975, the RSRs were raced for many more years. Even when the more potent 934 and 935 came to the market, many privateers preferred to run the lightweight and much better handling Carrera RSR 3.0.
