1988 RAC British Touring Car ChampionshipTouring Car Legends Mod & 1988 BTCC Cars
The championship will use the 1988 BTCC cars available in the Touring Car Legends 1.10
mod for rFactor.
You will also need the sound pack
to get all the engine sounds.
And you will need our BMW 635 fix
made by Alberto Ibanez
Engines sounds can be greatly improved by using this additional sound patch
made by Guillaume Siebert from the Touring Masters version of the mod by the RaceDepartment.
The field of 40 entries is divided in three displacement classes (A, B and C) featuring 9 different models of cars : – Class A
(+2500cc) : Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth (12 cars), Toyota Supra 3.0i MA70 (2 cars), Holden Commodore VL TWR (2 cars), Nissan Skyline GTS-R (1 car), Rover Vitesse SD1 (1 car), BMW 635 CSi (1 car)– Class B
(2500cc) : BMW M3 (7 cars), Ford Escort RS Turbo (2 cars), ALFA-Romeo 75 Turbo (2 cars)– Class C
(1600cc) : Toyota Corolla Levin TRD (10 cars)
All the upgrades available are allowed : the 6-speed gearbox for the BMW, the 470 HP Eggenberger engine for the Ford Sierra and the 300 HP works engine on the ALFA-Romeo. The 250 HP Special TRD engine on the Corolla is mandatory.
Cars will be attributed to drivers depending on their respective overall simracing level : the fastest drivers will be restricted to the big Class A cars, the fast drivers to the Class B ones, and the not so fast drivers to the Class C Toyotas. Seeding of the drivers will be done by the admins only. Changing of class during the year will be allowed for drivers who will have proved too fast or too slow for the class they were seeded in.
If a driver should be absent at a given race, his car will not be made available for another driver for this particular race. If a driver misses 2 races in a row without any explanation on the forum, his car will be freed and made available for someone else to book for the remaining of the season.Championship Rules

A few behaviour rules :
- as for all HSO races, it is required you use your real name both in-game and on the forum. Thank you.
- Chatting is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN
in race session. It is allowed in qualifying sessions for technical issues only.
- Drive Through : If a driver has to do a drive through, even if there is no pit lane speed limit, he has to drive through the pitlane at 100km/h max (60mph). If he doesn't respect this, he will get a 30s penalty at the end of the race.
- Shortcuts : If a driver gains a position after shortcutting a turn, he is required to give it back as soon as possible. In the case where a driver would not do it rapidly, a 30-second penalty will be added to his total race time. In the event of abusive and intentional shortcutting, severe sanctions will be applied (up to definitive a ban from the league). To make sure you never shortcut a turn, try to always keep two wheels on the track.Application and Interpretation of the Regulations
The admins alone are qualified to solve any problems raised by the application and the interpretation of the present regulations.
