As mentioned during the Preseason Changes, team managers have from today until Deadline Day (midnight on July 22nd) to submit any changes to their LGCS or NCS rosters.
Maybe a driver hasn't lived up to the standard expected at the start of the season? Maybe a team want to sign a free agent? Or maybe even recruit another driver from another team? Whatever the reason, now is the time to make those strategic changes to make your team and chances of taking home the Championship and Challenger Prize even stronger.
All roster changes must be submitted by the team manager via the 2016 Mid-Season Transfer Form which lists the previous Summer roster, outlines the changes being made, and lists the intended Autumn roster.
Team managers can resubmit this form multiple times until the Transfer Window closes at midnight on Deadline Day. Once done, all rosters are considered locked and cannot be changed again until the Post-Season following the grand final of both the LGCS and NCS.
Good luck to all drivers in existing teams, free agents that may be looking to get picked up, and all teams looking to improve their competitiveness in the back half of the season.
The Final Round of the Logitech G Championship Series Summer Split is now live.
Whilst SDL Logitech G and SDL Hauppauge take the top two spots in the PC Division Team Standings, the fight for the winning driver is still on.
SDL's Mangator has a solid 25 point lead with 3 out of the 4 podiums in the season so far so he's a surefire bet to take home the glory. However, a single mistake or a lack of pace could upset the standings and cause either teammate Masa or free agent FinPro to take the top spot.
Similarly over in the Console Division there's a three-way battle between Team Shark's Atho, PSF Racing's Fab, and SDL Logitech Blue's Rotax. Each have been on the podium in the Summer Split so far but without consistency so we'll have to see what the perils of Spa-Francorchamps bring and how best their Formula A cars are tuned to determine the winning driver here and who can potentially take their team to the top of the table.

With the Project CARS Esports summer break almost upon us, there’s no better time to catch-up with some of our biggest and best teams to find out how they view their 2016 season so far. Today, the spotlight is on PSFRacing, another super-quick French team lighting-up the championship in both the Logitech G Championship Series, and the NVIDIA Challenger Series.
The PSFRacing lineup includes some of the top drivers from various Project CARS Community Leagues; Fab, Edwood, Rafael, Dedexx, and Lulu. All names that you’ll want to keep an eye out for when you’re racing online or competing on our time-trial leaderboards.
Thanks to the efforts of these drivers, PSF currently sits comfortably inside the top 10 teams in the Console Division of the NVIDIA Challenger Series (in eighth place). The team is doing even better in the Open Setup Logitech G Championship Series, where it has really mastered the engineering aspects of the sim, coming up with some fantastic car setups which have propelled it right to the front of the order.
In the LGCS Console Division, Fab is just three points off the lead in second place in the drivers standings, while the team sits fourth on the team leaderboard after the first four rounds of the season.
We spoke to Fab to get his thoughts on PSF’s great start to 2016.
Round 5 of the Project CARS Esports NVIDIA Challenger Series took us stateside to the classic Watkins Glen circuit in glorious New York for some laps in the fan-favourite GT3 class.
We chose the Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 for Round 5, as it took place on the same weekend as the real-world 6 Hours of Watkins Glen, one of the top sportscar races in North America. Our Esports teams and drivers are very familiar with GT3 machinery, as this class if often the most popular in community leagues, live Esports events and the weekly ESL Go4 Cups.
However, the NCS is a Fixed Setup Series, so no matter how familiar these drivers are with the car, they can’t tune it for the circuit. Everyone has the same car and same default setup in the NCS. That made this round more about who could master their GT3 driving technique, rather than who could master their GT3 engineering.
The default setup can make for some tricky situations at the Glen too. Normally, our drivers would like to tune their suspension for the undulating elevation changes of this hilly course, as well as its bumpy surface. Instead, they had have to focus on their driving to maintain control and speed over some of the trickier sections of a circuit which challenges both driver and car.
Round 5 of the NCS will also decide our Summer Split Champions! Read on to discover which of our teams and drivers will lead the field going into the summer break.
The Final Round of the NVIDIA Challenger Series Summer Split is now live.
In the Console Division, it's a familiar battle with just 10 points separating SDL Logitech Blue headed by last year's SMS-R Driver Network Champion SoniK and rivals Team Shark Racing.
Yinato has proven dominance with three podiums out of four in the Summer Split whilst SoniK has shown that consistency is king having picked up big points throughout all rounds. The battle is on therefore to see which of these celebrated drivers will have the mettle to take home the glory of being crowned NCS Summer Split Champion.
Over in the PC Division a similar battle is raging with just 5 points between BAM eSports Khaki and Masa from SDL Logitech G.
These two drivers have been swapping 1st and 2nd position during the Summer Split pushing their teams to the top of the Team Standings. With SDL Logitech G trailing by 32 points, the result can be heavily swayed by the competition - fellow teammate Mandator from SDL Logitech G, and consistent speed kings TomiKilos from Project CARS Polska and Speeddmon91 from FAF Motorsport - all of whom have been in the Top 5 of each round throughout the season so far.
Who will be crowned PC and Console Divison Summer Champions then? Yinato or Sonik? Khaki or Masa? Follow the action on our Twitter feed, read about the teams via the links below, and tune in next week for the results.
