Welcome to our second season of GT3 racing in 2023! At CMS we work hard every single day to bring you the best iRacing championships we can, and season 2 is going to be a banger!
Get your private jets fueled up, because we’re bouncing back and forth between North America, Europe, and Japan!
We race every Wednesday night, session opens @8:30pm Eastern. Practice sessions every Tuesday night @8:30pm Eastern
We are also collaborating with the iRacing Team Endurance Series (iRTES) to align our calendar with theirs, so we will be running the same track the week before the iRTES races.

Some details may be changed on a per-race basis. Please read the posted race briefing for the race carefully! Briefings are posted on Discord before each race.
- Dynamic sky and weather, as well as a random track starting state
- Race session date and time will be included in the briefing
- Drive-through penalties will be assessed automatically:
- Every 17x for 60-min races
- Every 21x for 75-min races
- One fast repair available for each race.
- Drivers meeting will be held just before qualifying, using iRacing voice chat. All drivers must have voice chat enabled/unmuted during this period.
- Voice chat during the race must be kept to a minimum (imminent safety callouts only).
- Come to the drivers’ lounge (🎧
iRacingchannel on Discord) after the race to hang out with some of your fellow racers. (Optional, but we don’t bite!)
- Each race will be either 60- or 75-minutes.
- We will be running open setups. Please check out the
#setup-sharingchannel on Discord, or talk to your fellow drivers in
#discussion-wedsif you are new to setups or would simply prefer to have a good setup from someone else.
Please consult the points table for details. You must complete 50% of your class race winner’s laps to earn points.
Pro and Am drivers will race on track together, but will be competing for separate championships. All drivers will receive points in their respective championship based on their overall finishing position.
Drivers are permitted one car change per season, however points earned to date will be forfeit. Drivers that wish to change cars must notify series admins before the session opens on race night. Joining the session before notifying the admins may result in disqualification from that race. Changing cars more than once will not be permitted.
Drivers are locked into their classification (Pro or Am) for the season, unless moved by a series admin.
Rules and Regulations
We follow all league rules as specified in the General Competition Rules at CMS, as well as the iRacing Sporting Code. All members are expected to understand and follow these rules at all times.
Should you be involved in an incident on track, we encourage you to talk to the other driver first. If you wish to escalate it to be reviewed by the stewards, you can fill out an Incident Review Request (IRR). All IRRs must be submitted between 12 and 60 hours after the race.
Everyone must be aware of the Orange Zone (OZ) for each race, as published in the drivers’ briefing. Incidents that occur in the OZ will be reviewed automatically. Stewards will impose higher penalties for any driver found to be at fault for an incident in the OZ.
Your iRacing Wednesday night administrators are. in no particular order:
- Ryan Thompson
- Pierre Robitaille
- Tim Collier
Please don’t hesitate to contact any one of us via DM if you have any questions or concerns.
Note that, by design, we have no say over penalties or other stewards’ decisions. If you have a question about a steward (IRR) ruling, please contact the chief steward, Jon Uyan.
This series has been created for one purpose only: fierce, friendly competition on the track with like-minded racers, providing a place for everyone to race and have a great time doing so. We are all friends, here.
While we have rules in place, we also don’t intend to add complication or pressure to perform on race night. We all started sim-racing from scratch, and regardless of your experience we want everyone to feel welcome here. So please, come in and make some friends and we’ll see you on the track!
