FLExTREME Concept: Balance of Performance is a major topic in GT3 racing. We want to limit its impact and give teams a wider range of viable cars while giving teams agency over the BoP. A draft show will precede the series during which teams will select their car in a multi-stage process.
Depending on a car's general performance across the tracks of the season and the amount of teams choosing it, we will determine each car's BoP budget during the draft show. Teams need to spend that budget over the course of the four GT3 races.
Two additional races are contested with a single make (Porsche 992 Cup & BMW M2 CS Racing) in an attempt to further highlight the human factor.
Prize Money: Prize money will be awarded for various objectives apart from the finishing position. Fastest lap, best overtake, save or most positions gained are also rewarded. As a major cornerstone to make Esports racing attractive to partners, VCO will assist teams and drivers to meet the communication requirements throughout the series. Prize money incentives are tied to a minimum effort of communication around the series.
