Season 4 of Actrollvision Community Racing's "Triple Threat" league has arrived in Project CARS 2. The racing started at Red Bull Ring, with the familiar format of 15 minutes qualifying, 30 minutes timed race. The close and clean racing that the series is known for was on display once again. However, this time around there has been a tweak to the class structure to freshen things up. Catch-up with the results below.
Race 1: GT5
As in previous "Triple Threat" seasons, the GT5 class kicked things off. Relegated drivers from the previous GT4 season, Future and Serg1o were looking for positive results to bounce back at the first time of asking. However, Azmanms and Shushkata who joined the competition late in Season 3 had other ideas, as this pair locked out the front row in their Ginettas, followed by Serg1o in third. A fantastic start saw first and second pull clear of the field initially, but seperate mistakes by both dropped them to the back of the pack where they could score no points. Serg1o inherited the lead and apart from a wobble with 10 minutes to go, put in a flawless performance. Degeezer came from 11th on the grid to claim second place (and win Driver of the Day), and knightcrower270 took 3rd. Read on for the reports from the other classes.
The Project CARS 2 "Triple Threat" League by ACR powered forward with Round 8 of the season, at the high-speed curves of Silverstone. The GT5, GT4 and GT3 classes were our in force once again, with some great close racing on offer. First-up it was the GT5 class on the National Circuit.
Going into the GT5 race, a win for Lancerevoo would have guaranteed him his first ever ACR title, but with a few new boys in the league his day did not go to plan. Up stepped Quasi-404 to grab pole position on his debut, which must have felt like 'error 404' for Lancerevoo. He was within a tenth in second spot, with another new driver, Anzanmss from Turkey in third. The lights went out and Lancerevoo got a superb start which took him into top spot before the apex of turn one. Ashjw got up to second, which left Quasi to battle Shushkata and Azmanmss for the final podium spot. This battle lasted all race, until Shushkata claimed second on the line from Ash as he had a penalty. The real compelling story of this race was the battle for 6th, which saw Knightcrower270, Dazleon648, Correndath and Skitsophonic finish in that order, but it was a race long battle with more position changes than there are costume changes in a broadway musical. Lancerevoo picked up the Driver of the Day award with a faultless win, which also gave him the championship to boot. Read on for the GT4 and GT3 results.
As always, the GT5 race was first up this week, and they took to the Brands Indy circuit for their battles. The championship is wide open thanks to some of the top drivers receiving early promotions. Lancerevoo took pole position, with Ashjw and championship leader, YorkyPud in second and third respectively. Lancerevoo got a tremendous start and led from start to finish. Ashjw remained in second for 25 minutes before a mistake handed second spot to Kyle_Hummer, along with his fist ever podium. Ashjw dropped to third. YorkyPud had an eventful start which dropped him into a battle over fourth place with new boy Degeezer and old hat Correndath for the entirety of the race. Degeezer eventually took fourth. YorkyPud came fifth with Correndath sixth. The Driver of the Day was Degeezer for an exceptional fourth and his first ever points finish. Read on for the GT4 and GT3 results.
