    MS GT Challenge Racing Strategy Game

    This is a special bonus set! It takes an old, notorious (banned!) used-submitted carset and recycles it using elements from LMES, but with previously unimplemented GT style cars. The original calendar is used from the banned set, with copyright material removed. In addition, the format of each race has been tweaked slightly with more laps (but fewer than LMES) providing a more easy going GT-experience.

    There are two classes in this set. Each class has its differences, and with most multi-class carsets the experience is unique in each car, so it's well worth trying out each.

    Format

    There are two races at each venue, with the grid for the second race decided by the finishing order from the first race. We have permitted pit stops to be entirely up to the drivers and teams, though the longer 2nd race requires at least 1 stop due to fuel requirements.

    Points System

    Winner 30
    2nd 24
    3rd 20
    4th 16
    5th 12
    6th 10
    7th 8
    8th 6
    9th 4
    10th and onwards 2

    You do not get any points if you retire, but if you do finish, you score at least 2 points.
