LIVE Broadcasts of all 32 Class Races in Series 5

Our longtime broadcast provider, Podium eSports, will once again broadcast this series. Broadcasts will begin at 7:00 PM Eastern. Please take note of your current class assignment and associated practice and qualifying times. The PCA Steering Committee has worked hard to incorporate your suggestions and opinions from our Series 4 Survey and believe these changes will accommodate the most racers possible.

Consolidated Rules & Guidelines

Drivers, you asked for easier, more clear access to the Rules & Reference Guidelines. Done! Everything for Series 5 can be accessed from this one page! You will have a lot of reading to do, so click one of the bookmarks at the top of the page to “jump” to that topic section. To return to the top, click the “up” arrow in the lower right corner of the web page.

Cayman GT4

Most notably, Sim Racers will enjoy the iRacing Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR with open setups! But for those who either do not have the time or interest to create a setup, PCA Sim Racing retain our partnership in Series 5 with Virtual Racing School (VRS) and will be providing those setups for any racer in any class, however, you are free to modify and share your modified setup with other PCA members. Tuesday Tuneups will be specifically geared for testing and sharing setups for the various tracks in the series.

Driver Classifications

Once again we will have unique, specific driver classifications. The driver classes are PCA Challenge (previously known as PCA Rookie); PCA Sport (previously known as PCA Sportsman); PCA Club and PCA Pro. The full listing is always available on the Rules & Reference Guidelines page.

Our league within iRacing will be changing to accommodate the classes more appropriately. Important! Make sure you accept the new Series 5 league invitation within iRacing that will be associated with your class events. This will ensure we don’t have racers joining the incorrect session during events, and information specific to each driver classification will be sent to only the drivers in that class group.

Penalties & New IRR Procedure

The orange zone and other penalties have been reviewed and revised. They are available on the Rules & Reference Guidelines page.

This series is also utilizing a new ticketing system within Discord for all Incident Race Reports (IRR) which should greatly improve any confusion on submissions. Please make sure your setup is configured appropriately before races to ensure no comms issues or technical issues (run Ethernet cable to your rig!). 

Custom Liveries

Custom liveries will still be an option for our racers with a new and improved template for each class. Please see the Rules & Reference Guidelines page for the specific livery template to use.

Sponsors

We are pleased to announce that Series 5 will have a Driver Class Sponsorship for each race.

• PCA Pro Class races are sponsored by Porsche

• PCA Club Class races are sponsored by Michelin

• PCA Sport Class races are sponsored by LelandWest

• PCA Challenge Class races are sponsored by Hagerty

PCA Club Racing Series 5 Co-event

We have a special event for Series 5 on September 25th at Road Atlanta, where the PCA Club Racing group will be racing on the same track as the PCA Sim Racers. The broadcast will feature some of the live-action shots from Road Atlanta during the event.
