We are going to find the fastest driver in the world of Assetto Corsa Competizione!
The Coach Dave Time Attack is going to be a thrilling hotlap competition with it’s focus on drivers completing the perfect lap to beat the competition. Each week will see a change of track and a fresh leaderboard start. After 3 weeks, the top 33 drivers will come together in a nail-biting finale.
For this edition of the Coach Dave Time Attack, each driver will be able to choose between all available GT3 cars. Using their chosen car, drivers will need to set their best possible lap time on the provided server. Each week features a different track for the drivers to do their laps at. Week 1 is held at Suzuka, Week 2 at Spa-Francorchamps and Week 3 at Nürburgring.
Drivers can change their registered car at any time, and there is no requirement for the drivers who successfully qualify for the Finale to use the same car they used to qualify.
Drivers will be sorted in the standings on their best lap time. From each week, the fastest 10 drivers will qualify for the Finale. Therefore, those drivers are not required to set laps at any remaining tracks.
In addition, each week will also have a "Wildcard" qualify to the Finale. The "Wildcard" slot is given to the driver between P11 and P20 with the lowest number of total laps.
The Finale is a series of knock-out qualifying sessions and will consist of 33 drivers (the top 10 + Wildcard from each week). All 33 drivers will compete in Q1 with the top 20 proceeding into Q2. The top 10 in Q2 will proceed to Q3 and the results of Q3 will determine the final 3 who proceed to the knock-out Super Pole.
In the knock-out Super Pole, each of the 3 drivers will get 1 flying lap. After each driver has done their flying lap, 3rd placed is knocked out and the top 2 will each get another single flying lap. Crucially, the lap times and driver sequence from the first Super Pole run will remain so the pressure will be on the drivers to try and better their lap times from the first run and be declared the overall winner of the Coach Dave Time Attack!
Not only that, but the Finale will be held at a track chosen by public vote on social media!
