The Kyalami Series

Finished

OVERVIEW

The Sim Grid would like to present a short mini-series across the month of June - The Kyalami Series!

This championship will feature 5 races across 3 weeks at the spectacular Kyalami circuit located in South Africa:

Race 1 & 2 - Thursday 3rd June
Race 3 & 4 - Thursday 10th June
Race 5 - Thursday 17th June

Not only will this championship take place at one venue, the first 4 races will see drivers competing in equal machinery (in 30 minute sprint races) to put the emphasis on driver ability through setup and skill!

The final race of the series will be a 75 minute race in GT3 cars using a fully custom BoP. This will ensure that all cars are on similar pace:

Race 1 - Lamborghini Super Trofeo
Race 2 - Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO
Race 3 - Porsche 991 II GT3 Cup
Race 4 - Porsche 718 Cayman GT4
Race 5 - Open GT3 with Custom BoP
