What's Coming Up in 2021? - PCA SR

Wild West Zones Move Forward to Series2

Given that the stated goals of Zone Group racing are to allow more sim racing opportunities for PCA members in similar time zones and to grow the program at the grassroots, Zone/Region level, we are pleased with the progress seen so far through the completion of Series 1 in the “Wild West Zones”. Participating drivers from PCA Regions of Zones 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 14 (a.k.a all PCA regions of Western North America, including Alaska and Hawaii) competed passionately and fairly, contributing to the foundation of not only a great program, but friendships that will last a lifetime. We look forward to continued growth and program success as we launch WWZ Series 2 in January.

If you are not yet a registered participant in PCA Sim Racing, be sure to follow the instructions here to get signed up; this is a prerequisite for being able to participate in WWZ events…which you should put on your list of things to do in 2021.

In case you missed the conclusion of Series 1, here are the official results: WWZ Series 1 FINAL Championship Standings – All Classes (as of Dec 11, 2020).

1. All session sim times will be iRacing morning default with dynamic weather and sky enabled

2. All Classes will run the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (991) open setup car and will run together in one race. All races are 40 mins except Long Beach which will be 2 20 min heat races and Brands Hatch which will be an hour series finale.

3. Scoring will be iRacing Oval format/class: 43 points for 1st. Each subsequent position gets one point less. 1 Bonus point for pole in each class. 1 Bonus point for 0 incident points.

4. All races will count toward series results. No races will be dropped.

5. Tuesday (new day) eDEs will now be starting at 7:00 PM (new time). Wednesday Preludes will continue starting at 7:00.

6. Top 4 series finishers/class in each PCA WWZ Zone earn an invitation direct into the PCA Zone Group Championship races in the spring.

7. Hosted, group practice sessions may be announced on the Discord channel, so be sure to keep an eye out. If you are interested in hosting a session and aren’t quite sure what to do, please reach out to the WWZ Coordinators.

8. We will be using Trading Paints for managing car liveries for the inaugural WWZ series. You are free to be creative, but please be mindful of the appropriateness of your design in light of WWZ Rules, iRacing Custom Paint Policy, and iRacing Terms of Use. To apply the WWZ class-distinguishing markers to your livery:

1. Download the appropriate zip file for your class:

2. Unzip the downloaded file to access the PSD file.

3. Open the PSD file in PhotopeaGIMPPhotoshop, or other tool that supports Photoshop PSD files.

4. Duplicate the layer contained in the PSD file to your open livery PSD, ensuring it is placed above other layers in your design (directly under the “Turn Off Before Exporting TGA” layer group in the default iRacing template for your car).

5. Export your livery in Targa format as you normally do, and import into Trading Paints.

If you require any assistance, please check-out the instructional video on Trading Paints and Custom Liveries in iRacing or contact the WWZ Coordinators; we are more than happy to explain all of this in greater depth or help you create your first livery.
