Grand Am Rolex - Season 2 - Details

Post  OneFastRedneck on Fri Aug 06, 2010 9:28 am


Hi everyone, FM Challenge is part of a multi-division racing series called the Grand Am Rolex Series. Multiple Divisions will each be running the same identical series to determine their top finishers, and then the top finishers from all divisions will face off in a race to determine a Grand Am Rolex National Champion! FMC is home of the Eastern Division of this exciting series, and will be hosting the fun 3 week series on Saturday mornings at 10:00 EDT 9:00 CDT 7:00 PDT. The series is based on the real Grand Am GT series, with 15 cars of equal builds available. These are the same cars found in the real series built to nearly the same specs.

Note: There are 2 ways to get the car builds:

1-(more work for you)-Go to FMC 2010's storefront and get them(search Grand Am East). What you get from the storefront is the build only with a base tune. You can adjust the tune as you please, however there is a process you need to go through to unlock the build, and be able to tune the car: When you get the build from FMC 2010, you need to install it on a new car(one that has never been upgraded before). Once you have installed the build on the car, remove the build back to default. Then go back into the upgrade section and you can see the parts that need to be installed. Re-Install those parts and then you can tune your car. Make sure you only install the parts that were on the original build.

2-(more work for me)-I can gift them unlocked: Just send a PM "on Xbox Live" telling me (GLR1FastRedneck or FMC 2010) which car and it will be gifted asap.

**Any driver racing with the wrong build will be eliminated from the series immediately**

These are the cars on FMC 2010's storefront - Search "Grand Am East":

1. 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8

2. 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS

3. 2005 Ford Mustang GT

4. 2009 Pontiac G8 GXP

5. 2010 BMW M6 Coupe

6. 2004 Mazda RX-8 Mazdaspeed

7. 2003 Nissan Fairlady Z

8. 2010 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

9. 2003 Infinit G35 Coupe

10. 2004 Ferrari F430

11. 2004 Porsche 911 GT3 (996)

12. 2008 BMW M3 E92

These are RWD S-Class cars that are fully built with maximum handling and limited hp, and are quite possibly the best feeling cars you will ever have the pleasure to compete in.


The Series Inspiration:

The Grand Am Rolex series is American style Road Racing at its best with production based race cars. GRAND-AM Road Racing, which was founded in 1999, revolutionized major league sports car road racing in North America. As the organization begins its 11th season of competition in 2010, GRAND-AM is universally regarded as one of the world's most competitive road racing organizations.

The GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, featuring straight-from-the-showroom American muscle cars and the hottest imports, is also back in 2010 for its 10th season of competition under the GRAND-AM umbrella.

GRAND-AM races at some of the world's most prestigious venues - Daytona, Montreal and Watkins Glen - and has taken the role of a top annual attraction at some of the newest venues in the industry such as Miller Motorsports Park, Barber Motorsports Park, Virginia International Raceway and New Jersey Motorsports Park.


Eastern Division Series Details:

There are 5 tracks for the 3 week series. You will race 2 tracks each Saturday, 13 laps each, with 2 mandatory pit stops in each race. The 3rd Saturday will be the Divisional Championship, a 25 lap battle reserved for the top 8 points scorers in the Eastern Division.

After the 3 week series is over, it's on to week 4! The top points scorers from the Eastern Division will meet the top points scorers from the Central Division in the Nationals, a 25 lap battle to determine the Grand Am Rolex National Champion.

Once a Division's series has started, drivers are locked into that division for the duration of the series. Drivers are not permitted to race in multiple Grand Am Rolex Divisions.

Drivers may only pick 1 car for the series, you may use any paint livery you choose, and there is no car number required.
