Announcing the TORA Avon Tyres British GT Championship








The Online Racing Association (TORA) announces partnership with the Avon Tyres British GT Championship

TORA is proud to announce a landmark new partnership with the Avon Tyres British GT Championship that will see the real-world series feature heavily in the leading console sim racing community.

Founded in 2007, TORA’s initial inspiration was Great Britain’s national GT series and, with twelve virtual seasons under our belts, the opportunity has finally arisen to represent it officially for the first time.

“The Avon Tyres British GT Championship is the premier sportscar series in the country and I’m very proud to be associated with it,” said TORA President Matt Hunter. “The opportunity to finally represent it accurately through the TORA championship structure is outstanding and a true validation of what we do.

“TORA GT has been a mainstay championship at The Online Racing Association since day one and the move from production-based GT road cars to thoroughbred GT3 and GT4 machinery is a very exciting one. TORA’s staff are relishing the challenge ahead!”

“Sim racing and real world motorsport have tended to exist separately up until very recently, but we’re hoping to help change that,” added British GT Championship Manager Benjamin Franassovici.

“We’ve been approached about this sort of opportunity before but never felt like the technology could do the championship justice. TORA’s active community, stature and organisation allied to the accuracy of Project CARS changes all that and I can’t wait to see how the partnership develops. Hopefully fans and gamers alike will gain an insight into each other’s respective championships, which can only be a good thing for British GT as a whole.”

This will be the most high profile championship to be partnered with The Online Racing Association and follows closely on the heels of the Rogue Motorsport Cup and Maximum Group.net VAG Trophy. This further cements the status of TORA as a class leader in providing realistic, high quality virtual championships.

The 2015 TORA Avon Tyres British GT Championship launches the association's racing activities on the new Project CARS title from Slightly Mad Studios and will feature six of the seven real-world rounds plus a media day at Brands Hatch and a seventh round at Zolder. The championship will also feature a strong line-up of contemporary GT3 and GT4 machinery for the first time in TORA's history.

Today, TORA can also reveal the calendar for the 2015 championship:

Media Day: Brands Hatch Indy 24/05/15
Meeting 1: Oulton Park 07/06/15
Meeting 2: Zolder 28/06/15
Meeting 3: Silverstone 500 05/07/15
Meeting 4: Spa Francorchamps 19/07/15
Meeting 5: Brands Hatch 26/07/15
Meeting 6: Snetterton 09/08/15
Meeting 7: Donington Park 16/08/15

The 2015 championship will enjoy coverage on TORA's Twitch TV and Youtube channels throughout the year and will air on Motors TV in the autumn with full commentary from TORA's dedicated Media Team and support from technical partners, Base Performance Simulators.

Further details on the championship will be revealed following release of Project CARS, May 8th 2015.

Hi, sorry this might sound like a stupid question, but can you enter this championship on your own, so I would be the only one driving? If not how do the driver changes work or does one driver do one of the 30min races and then the other driver does the other?
