Mika, the PCF in PRC18-PCF means pacific ;) After the european tracks in the last Porsche Cup we will do Asian, Australian and American tracks only this time. The next criteria is, that we will most probably need more than 24 pitboxes /gridsize. And of course the tracks have to be at a decent state of development. The last update at Rockingham is over 2 years old...

We have enough American tracks for the PRC18-PCF. VIR is a classic track for the IMSA Porsche GT3 Cup, it is a must have. Road Atlanta is a beauty for its own. And most likely we would be able to get Laguna Seca from Kunos as well. Already more American tracks as we planned (2 Events per Asia/Australia and America).

We can talk about doing more events 9 instead of 6 to get a bit longer season. 18 races this way.

IMPORTANT: Please keep in mind that we need more than 24 gridpos. I think I am able to mod the tracks by my own to get the needed gridpos, but I would prefer using tracks that are ready to go.

Yes Laguna Seca is a musthave imo!
Making the series longer doesn't sound bad, 9 instead of 6  :thumbup:
But why not take a european visit f.e. like 3 out of 9 races take place in europe
(f1 does this f.e. , the asian tour with 3 asian races following eachother)

I honestly wouldn't mind if the series would NOT begin at the 10th of january but starting in february
it's been busy now my son has arrived  :exhausted:

thanks Simon. The track is a bit outdated from the technical aspect of it.

Personally I´m more in for Mallala as a possible third Australian track, these kind of tracks reflect more the typical ones in this country ;):
http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/mallala-motorsport-park.14863/ And it´s work in progress, hopefully the author will expand the gridsize as well :)

I havent searched for a good 3rd Asian or oceanic track so far. Suggestions welcome :)

Hehe Tim, all OK with you and your wife/girlfriend? Believe me, it´s definately true: small kids - small sorrows, big kids - big sorrows. Enjoy your son as long he is small ;) Even this means more physical stress. But better physical stress than psychological ones.  :grin:

About the tracks: Sorry, no european tracks this time. We´ve done them a lot in the past.

About the series start: I´ve been invited to a small business journey at 10th and 11th of January to the area of Cologne, where we have to talk with some suppliers about negative aspects of last years business. I really have to do this if I want to get less worries at the job next year.

This way we will start the series most probably at January 17th, because i surely will not miss the series start of my own league ;)

It makes no sense to wait longer: The Fun Trophy has been cancelled. More infos about scheduling the [PRC18-PCF] at the Newspage and thru a newsletter.

Hmm, looks like a straight conversion from rF. A bit outdated.

Thanks a lot for your support!Especially Sugo is worth a try.
