TORA 2015 Announcement





TORA Offices - 3/10/14

Today TORA is proud to release details of it's initial 2015 activities. For the first time, TORA participants will be able to take part in championships featuring the best British circuits on the much anticipated new title, Project CARS from this Winter.

Why Project CARS?
TORA has always strived to bring the most realistic racing championships available.
We firmly believe that Project CARS provides us with a unique opportunity to not only bring new championships to the virtual racing community but also work with the best national and international series to represent them in the virtual sphere.
With a huge raft of real word circuits maticulously recreated and dozens of cars, Project CARS allows us to build on our expanding virtual racing world.

With that in mind we are proud to present two of our anticipated championships for Slighty Mad Studios' new title, Project CARS, starting in Winter 2015.

TORA GT Championship 2015
For the first time in TORA history, the premier GT series will take place on Project CARS. Based on the highly competitive British GT Championship, TORA GT brings together high powered sports cars with the most challenging circuits Britain has to offer.
The championship has a long standing link with TORA as it was the original inspiration for the TORA GT Championship, now entering it's 13th season.
The TORA British GT Championship will bring together cars from Audi, Aston Martin, Bentley, BMW, Ginetta, Mercedes, Nissan and Porsche (RUF) to compete at Britain's greatest circuits.


TORA President Matt Hunter;
"As the inspiration behind TORA's founding series, the opportunity to emulate the fantastic British GT Championship for the first time with the real cars and circuits is a massive opportunity for us.
We hope we can take this opportunity to show real and virtual fans alike why the British series is the best domestic sports car series in the world".

TORA Endurance Championship 2015
The 2015 TEC will make full use of Project CARS' full weather and day/night cycles to bring even more realism to the endurance events and it's associated coverage.
TORA will also be bringing new events to console racing for the first time.

Daytona 24 - The iconic opener to the US racing season arrives at TORA for the first time on Project CARS. Entrants will also be able to enjoy the preceding 'Roar Before the 24' test, all in real time and with full weather and time transition.

Bathurst 12 - This relative newcomer to the endurance calendar has captured the imagination of sports car fans all over the world and attracted some of the world's best to compete in this gruelling once around the clock event to conquer Mount Panorama.

Le Mans 24 - TORA's blue ribband event returns with full weather and day/night transition. Prepare for the focussing experience of nearly 200mph on the Mulsanne Straight at the dead of night. This race is going to be special!

Spa 24 - The premier racing event for GT3 and GT4 cars makes it long awaited debut at TORA. The weather in this region of Europe is notoriously fickle and rain is a constant threat. Can you tame Eau Rouge at night?

Silverstone 12 - The home of British motorsport and TORA's spiritual home, Silverstone plays host to the 12hrs multiclass race in Britain's early Autumn.
If the race is anything like the last two encounters this will be yet another classic.

Nurburgring 24 - The 2015 TORA racing calendar will conclude with the most challenging race of the year. Twice around the clock at the most iconic racing circuit on the planet.

The media output will continue to be a mix of our excellent in house talent and the experienced staff at Downforce Radio to whom we offer our thanks for their continuing involvement and support. TORA members can expect some particularly exciting developments in this area as we explore the options open to us with full twenty-four hour coverage of some of the world's greatest endurance races.

More news and championship details will be announced closer to the release of this much anticipated title.

Alright, this isn't a PCars vs FM5 showdown thread. The staff has taken this decision and it isn't up for debate (not for the fact that most seem to support this decision) It's great we have a choice and always have FM5 as a fall back option. I don't see it as putting all the eggs in one basket with FM5 sat on the backburner. Hopefully this should give T10 a kick up the arse to deliver with FM6 too. Competition often brings out the best.

I dont know whats going on but, i hope FM still is having the Tec Series/TCC/GT and all that otherwise TORA will lose quite some support cause obviously people are gonna prefer FM5 to PCars and Vise Versa but only time will tell with this move i guess, i Also got a chance to play Pcars at EGX, and to be quite frank yeh it is an amazing game, BUT! games have been like that before and gone down drain, not saying Pcars will but there is always that slight chance that it will

Well this is awkward... lol.

Honestly though, Delaying it because they don't want to release alongside AAA titles, And so they can further polish the game is just stupid. If anything it's going to make people lose interest in the title.

It really could use the extra time for polish and finishing off new content

Eh yeah but name a game that wouldn't benefit from the developer delaying it to further polish the content.

Maynard, They want this game to be the best sim racing out there, look at FM5 for example, rushed job, i don't think TORA, the community and the devs to have another FM5 rushed and not polished and everything coming out as DLC, Let the developers do what they can to make this game the best they can

So what happens when more AAA title announce their releasing in March 2015? Does the game get delayed again? At the end of the day the game will either sink or swim, Regardless of when its released.

With modern technology and development methods the game could be released on time and become further polished through updates. Im all for it being the best game it can be but the "community assisted race sim" seems to be backing down when up against titles like COD and Assassins Creed, the reality is that the game is an entirely different genre and if you look at all the hands on viewpoints and the majority of the media the game is touted as a hardcore racers title which kind of limits its market anyway.

I intend to take up competetive masterbation while I wait for this game, ill set a time..... see if you can beat it

I have been highly critical of Forza 5 and I will now be consistent

I am seriously annoyed at this. If they'd found some major gameplay issue then I'd understand, but under the guise of "polishing the game" they are putting it back to avoid competition with the big titles.

So lets speak hypothetically here. Gran Turismo release a game in March next year, do they put it back again? Where do you draw the line?! The game will be a success or it wont because of the game, not what other titles come out at the same time! Gamers will buy the games that interest them, be it on release day, a week later, a month later. Very poor form

The delay doesn't bother me. Forza 5 was rushed and look at how that turned out lmao

The original date would have put it in the same time period (and day in the case of most of them) :
COD:AW
Halo MCC
Far Cry 4
AC: Unity
GTA V
The Crew

March 2015 on the other hand will see competition from releases like:
Final Fantasy Type-0 HD
Mortal Kombat X
Maybe Battlefield Hard On aswell


A much better chance to get into the spotlight while adding more content (Bentley, Audi and BMW LMP cars coming along) with fixing and polishing

Yes very disappointing indeed. Was looking forward to something different racing wise. I'd rather have a great stable game in the end.
