Welcome everyone to Season 3 of Project Cars 2 with LPL!

Season 2 has been a fantastic season, we were finally able to optimise the website to support racing titles on the platform and our numbers have grown!

We are thrilled to bring you another season of Project Cars 2. The new upcoming season will have a few new improvements, changes to format and cars! The Pro Division will also be making it’s return with a couple familiar faces!

Season 3 2019 will commence 1 August 2019 and conclude 12 September 2019.

Season 3 2019 will be holding the following Divisions:

Amateur: $500, subscription required, open for all players to join!
Pro*: $TBC, subscription required, invite only Division. Featured on Twitch and SKYTV.

*To be invited to Pro, players must qualify through the previous Division (Amateur in this case). All players must have an active LPL subscription for the duration of the tournament, you can find it here.
**It is highly recommended for all players to join the Discord channel for further communication.

All players must link their Steam ID's to their profile, you can do so by going to your Profile and clicking Game ID's.

Regular Play Format
Amateur and Pro will follow the same format.

Players in Amateur will be assigned lobbies of 16 players or equally split players [should there be more than 16 players but less than 32 players] by LPL admins prior to race every week.

-Amateur races will commence every Thursday 7PM AEST/9PM NZT.
-Pro races will commence every Thursday at 8PM NZT/6PM AEST on Twitch and SKYTV.

Each week, players will race three races in one night, two supplementary sprint races (offering lesser points) and one feature-length race (offering full points). Sprint races will have a five minute qualifiers and featured races will have a 10 minute qualifiers. Sprint races will last roughly 22 minutes (5 minutes of qualifiers + 17 minutes of race time) and featured races will last for 45 minutes (10 minutes of qualifying + 35 minutes of race time).

For PRO, after Week 7 the top 8 will receive prizing for the Championship and qualify for the LAN event.

For Amateur, players will be required to click the "ready up" button that appears 3 hours before game time, PC2 admins will create one match lobby 15 minutes prior to match start time and players will use their assigned match lobby to communicate with other players to host/join a lobby. All four races will be raced using this lobby. Players must screenshot and upload their placements for all four races onto the match lobby using the "upload screenshot" button. PC2 admins will manually input scores using the screenshots by the end of the following day.

For PRO, players will be required to join an "invite-only" Discord for PRO and will communicate with PC2 admins there during broadcast. Match lobbies will be created and points will be recorded onto the LPL platform by the end of the following day. Screenshots are not needed but is welcomed!
