Next Level Racing GT3 CUP RETURNS

To celebrate the launch of the new brand identity for Simracing.GP we are delighted to announce the return of the Next Level Racing GT3 Cup. If you aren't familiar with the NLR GT3 CUP don't worry, it was a test tournament we ran during the closed beta for SGP. As you know we are still in open beta phase and are gearing up for a full public access launch soon but as a thank you to all the drivers which have contributed to the successful testing of the platform we are hosting another knockout tournament, this time on ACC.

The Prizes

Let's get straight to the important stuff, what you can win. Well the good news is that there are prizes not just for the quickest drivers. Here is the complete list of what you can win.

4) Second place in overall Tournament - GT Elite Cockpit worth £749

5) First Place in overall tournament - GT Elite Cockpit + Seat + Monitor Stand - In total Worth £1277

The Format

This is a knockout tournament, meaning no hotlap qualifying, it's straight out racing from the start. The aim is to get to the final race by being promoted through each of the rounds and avoid being eliminated by finishing in the "Elimination Zone" in each round.

Everybody enters in Round One by joining one of the "heats" in this case they all take part on Tuesdays with round one taking place on Tuesday 17th May. The heats are set five minutes apart and run from 17:00 UTC - 20:00 UTC.

The races will be short sprint races up to a maximum of an hour for the final. The conditions of the track and pitstop requirement will be announced upon completion of the previous round.

How To Progress

To qualify you must finish outside of the "Elimination Zone" in each round. In Round One we guarantee at least 50% of the drivers will progress to round two. This number may be higher than 50% depending on number of drivers taking part but it won't be lower. From then on the number of drivers progressing will get smaller as we aim to whittle the driver numbers down to a final race. The number of drivers which progress from each round will be communicated in the NLR Discord at the end of each round.

Start Date & Times

Starting Tuesday 17th May drivers can register to the Next Level Racing Special event on SGP and join the NLR Discord now. You can then register for a heat on Simracing.GP.


Races will start every five minutes from 17:00 UTC until 20:00 UTC or when grids aren't full.
