Post Haruna's World of Racing PART 7: Eurasian Ultimate Enduro
EURO Eurasian Ultimate Endurance Championship
The ultimate trial of Endurance in Asia and Europe.

Discipline: Endurance
Categories: Super Prototype & GT Endurance PRO (Tier A)

EURO = European Union of Racing Organizations

Category Introduction:
Curiously, despite the common perception among the public, not all Prototypes are built to contest for overall victories. As the penultimate step in the Endurance ladder, the Super Prototype class has been a mainstay for over three decades in different forms. Essentially a 'lite' version of the higher-up Works Prototype cars, these little siblings fought every bit as hard as their bigger Works counterparts for class victories. The class is highly popular with small, underdog race car constructors with Endurance aspirations but nowhere near the budget to compete at the top level, and the story is the same for many of the teams who compete in this class.

The class is almost exclusively targeted towards privateer teams, with a common cost cap, technology equivalency balancing, and yearly-only homologation updates. Like GT Endurance PRO, these measures were introduced to prevent the power wars that plagued the Works Prototype and GT-E PRO categories for decades. As a result, the class is frequently chaotic and competitive for consisting almost entirely small, private constructors.

Series Background:
The Eurasian UEC has been a mainstay in various forms over the decades of Endurance racing since the 80's. First introduced as an all-Prototypes series just before the popularity explosion of what is now the RETRO Works Prototype class, the series toured many of Europe's finest and most grueling Endurance races. Despite suffering numerous cost escalation wars over its lifetime, the series has weathered out the storm time and time again. It first introduced GT cars to the series in the 90's after the Works and Super Prototype classes were reformed, and has maintained a mix of Prototype and GT cars since. Despite the long races, the series is hugely popular with sports car racing fans from all over Europe and Asia, and winning here has often proved to be a huge boost of popularity and sponsorship for all involved.

The Cars:
GT Endurance PRO
Spoiler: show
The formula for a modern-day GT Endurance PRO class car is pretty simple. 600 horsepower (give or take 20), fat slicks, a somewhat liberal minimal weight limit, and an emphasis on aerodynamic grip, all combine for a great car to race. Although the GT Endurance PRO class is more heavily restricted on power than the AM class is, the chassis and aerodynamic regulations are certainly not; many of the cars do not actually use the original production chassis, instead opting for a similarly-shaped carbon fiber shell reinforced by a tubular steel frame. As with GT-E AM, engine swaps from the same manufacturer are allowed, and in addition, aspiration swaps (for example, atmospheric to turbo) are legal.

Although each of the GT-E PRO cars are quite a bit different from one another despite the heavy regulation of performance, there is the usual bit of advice for Endurance cars. While these cars CAN be drifted, you WILL kill your tires. Power over these cars at your peril!

Super Prototype
Spoiler: show
As a true 'lite' class to the mighty Works Prototype class, the Super Prototype is designed as a training ground for future Endurance superstar prospects. Although slightly less powerful than a GT-E PRO car, the "little" Super Prototypes far more than make up for it with almost literal buttloads of downforce and extra sticky slicks. Being almost 300 kilograms lighter helps a little, of course. Although the original Super Prototypes were developed on a bespoke, in-house developed chassis, more constructors are beginning to adopt using "universal" carbon-fiber monocoques across their Works and Super Prototype programs. Even though production-based race engines are legal in this class, a few constructors use specially developed engines for the class instead.

Super Prototypes are all mid-engine, rear-wheel drive beasts. Their acceleration is impressive and much like a Grand Prix or high-end Pro Tuned car, you'll need to trust the aerodynamics to stick you to the floor at speed. Like any Endurance car, avoid sliding as much as you can. While certainly possible at lower speeds, all it will accomplish is a set of fried rear tires, a bad thing in races as long as these.


The Teams:
Super Prototype
Spoiler: show
Bleu de France Competition are one of the largest teams in French motorsport history. A team whose experience in the traditional disciplines spans nearly seven decades, the team is a traditional rival to IMAS Performance Moe Moe. Taking advantage of the easy-to-drive powerband of the diesel-powered Marek RP 219D, their car has been updated with a stiffer chassis and updated aerodynamics package, making it easy to drive on both slow and fast courses alike. Paul Ricard is a legend in the European Endurance circles; he will be partnering up with up-and-coming star Michele Arnage for this season. Paul Ricard is the best driver in this class, but will the extra handling help him in these long races, or will he be yearning for extra power? Only time will tell.

Fuchsia Autosportif are a team well-known in the Mediterranean road racing scene, if not for their racing skill, then it is at least for their distinctive pink livery. Team founder Alexis Kokinos created the team after the World Grand Prix team he was a part of went bankrupt a decade ago; the pink, white, and bare carbon livery is his symbol of believing in "the purity of competition". Their HPD-powered Ligier JS-SEP race car is a departure from their normal tuning methods; focusing on power and response, the car is good at overtaking and battling for positions, but a bit nervous in traffic and on the limit. Driving for the team this season are Bernhard Heinrich and Bethany Tudor, both relatively inexperienced at this level of competition. Consider it a development season for them.

Grunder Speedlabs are one of Germany's longest running tuning shops. Founded initially as Grunder Modifikationsgruppe, the company has used Endurance and Touring Car racing as a proving ground for its products since its founding in the late 70's. The company went international in the 1990's and became the Speedlabs brand that fans of German cars love. Their switch to the Marek RP 219D from two seasons ago is a curious one; rumors have it that the car is planned to be used as a test bed for several diesel sport compacts popular in Europe. With extra power and a lighter chassis compared to last year's car, this Marek can use its low drag to its full advantage and is ideal on fast stop-and-go circuits. Driving for the team this season are Touring car stars David Learner Jr, and Endurance pro Gustav Bahr. Though the car is a little underdeveloped, the team certainly is not.

IMAS Performance Moe Moe, known as de la Sarthe Motorsport in their olden days, are one of France's longest-running and most prestigious teams, even with their silly title sponsor. Founded in the "frontier era" of auto racing, the team's experience spans well over 70 years. Their recipe is simple; power and control in equal measure. Their Oreca 05 SEP is no exception, with improved aerodynamics, more power, and an updated chassis to round out an already excellent package. Though Louise de la Sarthe is regarded as the lesser of the two Sarthe sisters driving for the team, she's no scrub, and neither is her teammate for this season, Jason Fontaine, a former Lightning Car driver. Both drivers are poised to strike for victory, but given how closely matched the competition is this year, their chances may as well be rolled on a d20.

TechForce Motorsport are a team heavily affiliated with Nissan's Endurance racing program in Europe, especially after the acquisition of the team by Marc van Dach. Though a bit young compared to some of the other teams, many of its staff are ex-Works team engineers and personnel, which had allowed the team to shoot its way up the rankings quickly. Experience and money are two entirely different things, however, and the team's rather modest budget has mostly produced a car that is easy to drive and easy to recover. Filip Gradek and Maria Dahlmeier are both relatively inexperienced at this level of competition, and will be likely to bring up the rear of the SEP class field if the other teams don't run into mishaps.

Uguu Power Sports are widely considered by Aussies to be their country's equivalent to the de la Sarthe Motorsports team; equally childish-sounding title sponsors (manufacturer of Asian-style sweets, in this case), hugely talented drivers, and a lot of money to back it up. Lead by Touring Car legend Peter Bathurst, the team are unusual in that a huge percentage of their winnings go straight towards charities around the world. Don't mistake their loving charity for weakness, though; the RWD Motorsports P20 they wield is a capable weapon with efficient aerodynamics and a well-tuned chassis for all but the fastest tracks. Lily Bathurst is no stranger to Endurance, but the real surprise of the team is Peter Bathurst's adopted daughter, Ayu Sepang. Even at the young age of 15, she is equally as capable as anyone else on the grid.

GT Endurance PRO
Spoiler: show
The Archetype Racing Club is a team run by a playboy by the name of Andreas Brunestud. With a strong desire to escape what he saw as a boring socialite life, Brunestud used his connections to the old guard of wealth to buy out several racing teams in Europe and Asia. Though the team is basically a playboy's plaything (ha), Andreas takes his team management equally as serious as the pros. His team's Aston-Martin DBR9 JSA-GT has power in spades, and is a rocket down long straights. Despite receiving training from several top drivers, Andreas is still just a spoiled rich kid, and lacks the discipline to compete at this level. His teammate and lover Sara Hanamaki is far more disciplined, but lacks experience. If there's any team you should consider backmarkers by default at the top tiers of racing, it's this one.

de Witte World Racing Team are essentially Einzbern AG's works team, having been a part of the company's racing program since its inception in the late 50's. A storied name in racing, the de Witte family have had racing successes in the discipline stretch back even further, back in the days of cross-country road races. The Einzbern Iris I8 JS-RSR the de Wittes are running for this season are running an experimental package, focused on power and response. With the added power, the car is very quick on straights, but is nervous in the corners. Ilya de Witte is skilled behind the wheel and surprisingly more disciplined compared to his mother, but Aoko Ooshima is as unruly as a driver comes. Expect these drivers to be in the mid-pack.

Global Grip Fiends were once a small group of tuners from the Mediterranean region. After being united by racing driver Bruno de Leon, their combined forces allowed the team to become a dark horse among the regular front runners. Though relatively new to professional competition as a whole, their plucky characteristics allowed them to shine in situations where other young teams would choke. The Lamborghini RS-V JSA-GT the team fields improves upon its strengths in the straights with an improved engine, and upgraded the chassis to better handle the extra power. Hildegard Stern has yet to truly prove herself at the top level of competition, but she's adapted surprisingly quickly; her teammate Karl Wieland is no joke either. Expect them to fight hard for points, but ultimately lose out on outright wins.

Tohno Tires Team Tornado aren't just one of Japan's biggest drifting sensations; they're a serious Endurance racing team that uses the discipline to prove the viability of their products. Though Japanese in origin, their drivers and personnel hail from all over the world, making them a melting pot of some of the better engineers and drivers in recent years. Light on its feet and quick to respond, the Einzbern Iris I8 JS-RSR they field is an ace on tight, twisty tracks. Though both Yeong-Jun Kim and Natalia Esposito are no strangers to Endurance racing, this will be their first year competing at this tier of competition. Their battle to stay out of the bottom half may prove to be a frustrating exercise in surviving the distance.

Tsuchigami no Kyojin were once just a loving couple in their local street racing scene. Though the Garage House Tsuchigami brand has been one of the longest-running service brands in the country, their involvement in racing was kept at a relatively local level. This all changed in the 90's once said loving couple wanted to ditch the streets and hit the track. Fitting to their name, the Tsuchigami's Honda HSV-010 GT is a pure powerhouse with augmentations to the Honda's already immense downforce levels. The result is a high speed cornering monster that is tough to tame. Representing the team for this season is Ludwig Stern, older brother and rival to Hildegard Stern; his teammate Ai Tsuchigami is both his lover and a tough opponent to take down. This team will definitely be fighting for podium places, but whether they can take on Sabina Jerez of Yukihiro Racing Engineering is an entirely different matter.

Yukihiro Racing Engineering have similar backgrounds to Garage House Tsuchigami, being a family run automotive service business. Though the family is on friendly terms with the Tsuchigamis, they're still rivals due to their allegiances with differing brands and philosophies. Rather than building upon existing strengths, the Yukihiro family have built their name on bringing harmonious balance to their machines. As a result, their Lexus SC430 JSA-GT has good all-round handling, is light, and is reasonably quick down long straights. Running with the team's banner in this series are Sabina Jerez, best friends with lead driver Megumi Yukihiro; her teammate is Megumi's valiant but ultimately outclassed son, Ryou Yukihiro. Sabina Jerez is a class above the rest (literally), but Ryou will be struggling to fight his way to the front of the field.

Trivia:
Spoiler: show
  • Bleu de France is the traditional national racing color of France, so it's fitting that their car is mostly blue.
  • David Learner Jr. is a reference to Learner Driver from Destruction Derby... though David is a major badass here.
  • Ayu Sepang, despite her team affiliation, does NOT have "uguu" as her catchphrase.
  • Andreas Brunestud is an In Name Only reference to the main heroine of Tsukihime, Arcueid Brunestud.
  • Sara Hanamaki is supposed to be roughly parallel to Shiki Tohno, also from Tsukihime: Hanamaki and Tohno are cities in the Iwata Prefecture.
  • If Iris de Witte is Irisviel from Fate/Zero, does that make Ilya de Witte a reference to Irisviel's daughter?
  • Aoko Ooshima sounds awfully similar to a certain Miss Blue from Melty Blood, a fighting game spin-off which uses characters from Tsukihime...
  • Hildegard Stern denies ever being a warrior princess in a past life, but she often wonders how cool it would be.
  • Amusingly, if you put the given names of Haruna and Ai Tsuchigami together, you get the name of an idol, Haruna Ai. This is completely coincidental.

So Einzbern AG's works would be an analogue to Porsche? Like RUF is to Porsche?

Yes to both.

What's the nationality of the Company anyways? Judging from the drivers and the names, it's probably German. or Dutch.

German car company, half-Dutch-half-German racing team.

So the Formula's been done with. Now, how about LMPs?

A few others have been waiting for Prototypes for a while, so yes :p

Ran out of ideas of championships?

Consider the following:
- There are six Tier A championships. Two for Endurance, one for the other disciplines.
- There's five disciplines.
- Each of the Tier B and C classes in each discipline have at least three championships, except for Oval, which only has one.
- There's a Rookie tier, slotted below C. Car count is reduced a lot but there's four championships for each discipline, except again for Oval, which has one.
Short answer: No. :D

Post Haruna's World of Racing PART 8: Ultimate American Endurance
UPDATED WITH FIXED CAR AND TRACK PACK
(sorry guys)

IMAS Ultimate Endurance League of the Americas
From America to Brazil, the best Endurance teams of the Americas come together for the ultimate showdown.

Discipline: Endurance
Categories: Super Prototype & GT Endurance PRO (Tier A)

IMAS = International Motoring Authority of Sport


Series Introduction:
Though primarily an American series, the IMAS-organized league has seen competitors from all over the globe do battle over nearly three decades of competition. Unlike its European counterpart, the Eurasian UEC, the UEL of the Americas was originally a GT-focused series, based primarily on the American GTX-A class of regulations. Prototypes were added a few years after, and it's said that the very late 80's was the peak era for this series. Despite a decline in the late 90's, the series has come back strength-to-strength in recent years, and many international and works support teams are coming back to the championship. Though it still has the stigma of being the "fat slob's UEC", quite a few of the Global Endurance Masters' champions have proven their worth here first.

The Cars:
Please see the entries on GT-E PRO and SUPER Prototype here.

The Teams:
SUPER Prototype
Spoiler: show
Northern Wolf Motorsports have widely been regarded as one of the strongest teams in any discipline in recent years, and it's not hard to see why. Backed by an extremely wealthy and ambitious man who fancies calling himself "The Benefactor", the team is a melding of world-class teams from all over the world. Their combined funding and staffing forces allow for the team to modify their Oreca 05 SEP to be an incredibly strong car at high speed tracks, though its handling at low speeds leaves a bit to be desired. Thunder Alley legend Robert Hawkens and ex-Rallying superstar Sebastien Nogaro will fill out the ranks for the team in the series; with such a combination of driver and engineering skill, the team are set to absolutely dominate the series with few who can truly oppose them here.

Pergusa World Motorsports were once long-time rivals to Italian motorsports juggernaut Scuderia Testarossa. Having gone out of business in the mid-90's after one of their most beloved drivers of the era ended up being brutally killed, the newly formed team under the same name is a mix of American and European talents. With a team reformation came a rethinking of their upgrade philosophy; the team's RWD P20 SEP boasts the highest downforce figures of any car in the Super Prototype field, and has a light, well-balanced chassis to further bolster its handling. Emma Pergusa and Lumi Ahokainen are both new to levels of competition this fierce, and will need every last bit of handling they can get. It'll be up to them to put the team at the front of the field... not an easy task considering a few of the entrants.

Southern Rebels Motorsport are a staple of the American racing scene, having been involved in the traditional disciplines for nearly over forty years. Their name is well known in the United States as a result of their involvement, and the now diverse range of specialties the team has on offer allows them to be competitive anywhere. Unlike the Pergusas who have went and taken the RWD P20's strengths to their logical extremes, the Rebels' take on the P20 is a powerhouse with improved aerodynamic efficiency. Robert Haks cut his road racing teeth in stock cars, but he's just as home in a SUPER Prototype and thus one of the drivers for this season; his teammate Forrest Evers is new to racing at this tier of competition, and it shows. They don't stand a chance against Northern Wolf, but let's face it; in this series, nobody does.

Steel Angel Auto Sports were a team formed by ex-Scarlet Devil Race Works driver and mentor Sara Hockenheim, after a series of internal disputes left her and several of her staff members in disgust. Though nowhere nearly as well-funded as she used to be, Sara's team are definitely one of the better crews to have in this discipline. The Steel Angels have tuned their cars for ease of use, and it shows; the HPD-powered Ligier JS-SEP is an exceptionally well-handling car that is easy to drive consistently no matter what the circuit. Team founder Sara Hockenheim is better known for her exploits in Lightning Car, and her teammate Rhys Stridberg is more famous for his hillclimb shenanigans, but both are skilled and respected drivers. Again, however, they will almost certainly get blown out of the water by Northern Wolf, and it's a bit of a shame considering the talent on display here.

The Apex Predators are normally a team native to European circuit racing. Their Oval Racing division was founded when team founder Patrik Kriz began expressing a desire to race overseas. Oval Racing legend Joseph Sauvageau quickly caught wind of this, joining the team and expanding the Apex Pred's operations to the United States. The team are new to the top level of American Endurance racing, and it's easily reflected upon in their tune; a little extra power here, a little more grip there. Appropriately for their expansion to American soil, Joseph Sauvageau and Patrik Kriz will be racing for the team this season. Patrik Kriz will probably be staring at everyone else's tail pipes, but Joseph is the only driver who is in the same league of skill as the Northern Wolf drivers. A mixed bag, really.

Tohno Tires Team Tornado aren't just one of Japan's biggest drifting sensations; they're a serious Endurance racing team that uses the discipline to prove the viability of their products. Though Japanese in origin, their drivers and personnel hail from all over the world, making them a melting pot of some of the better engineers and drivers in recent years. The way the team have tuned their Marek RP 219D is a clear bias towards responsiveness; better tires and suspension tuning, and a lower drag aerodynamics kit are all subtle tweaks, but they add up, especially on faster tracks. Leonard Brandt is using his experience gained from open-wheel racing to help him out in his first season; his teammate Minoru Sakamoto has been a regular in the J-SA GT Masters for a few years. Their talents combined aren't quite enough for front row, but considering who IS on the front row, who does?

GT Endurance PRO
Spoiler: show
Beast Energy Motorsport may be relatively new to racing compared to the other teams, but their drivers and personnel sure aren't, and it shows. This well-disciplined squad have done their homework on GT Endurance racing, though it seems like their power-hungry tuning methods for the Chevrolet Corvette C7-JS.R hasn't quite paid off yet here. Appropriately for the Corvette, the Beast Energy car cranks its power up to eleven, paired with an aero package meant for higher max speeds. Nifty for long straights, though it is clumsy in the corners. Driving for this team are "Squirrel Girl" Nanaya and Hayate Hamasaki. While Michelle is quite a talent even at this level of competition, Hayate just doesn't have the experience to cut it. Front of mid-pack might be the best they do this season.

Eternal Brakes R&D Team are, as their name implies, a research and development team for a high-profile brakes manufacturer. Although their brand is commonly used among other teams, the R&D squad are always the first to get their hands on the latest developments. Their Ford GT JS-GT is short on power, but handles well at any speed. It being a bit rear-heavy however, the team's car is a little unstable in unsteady hands, though this makes it a pretty good car for learning smooth driving. Andrew Pilgrim and Benedict Stark have been partners on this team for a long time, and their cooperation is probably the reason why the cars handle as well as they do. Even so, the team will probably still be stuck at mid-pack this season.

Fan Service Magazine Project D.D. have a silly name and a sponsor more well-known for publishing risque content than its involvement in racing. After a few articles interviewing several key figures in the racing scene, however, fans wanted a race team of their own to root for, and they got it. Though a driver development program at heart, the team are just as serious about winning as any of the other teams are, and their own Ford GT JS-GT has mated power with downforce for an ideal package at fast circuits. Even though the team usually employs pro-am lineups, the team are aiming for wins this season, and have their two driver coaches Elise Nurburg and Christina Giese in the seats. Their underdeveloped race package is what is holding them back.

J.S. Staff Tuning House are an up and coming name in Japan's tuning scene, focusing on a unique mix of minimalist, compact style and proven racing tech for both the track and street. Their style has caught on in the States, and although their budget is modest and their staff few, the power and funding of fans around the world has made their dream of competing on the world stage possible. The Lexus SC430 JSA-GT they brought over from their JSA-GT Masters program is a decent mix of power and grip, although it is underdeveloped due to their shoestring budget. GT racing superstar Shouta Sakai and upcoming Endurance talent Henri de Tristain will be taking the wheel for the team this season. Though Shouta is definitely a driver to look out for, the race package is rather underpowered and Henri will struggle for points.

Skullcrusher Competition are a dark horse on the top level of American Endurance and Oval Racing, having only been formed six years ago in the dirt track scene. With their sideways, on-the-limit racing style, the team shot straight up the rankings in America's famous "Sprintdurance" format, which placed an emphasis on consistent maximum attack rather than the fuel saving game. Though their Saleen S7-R was already a good car to begin with, the weight reduction and improved chassis have made the car very easy to attack on the limit, and it's a fantastic all-rounder. For this season, Gregory Samson came out of retirement to showcase his aggressive style, while Melanie Renoir is better known for her smooth, deliberate moves. This contrast is what will probably allow for the team to shoot for wins, though Melanie has yet to prove herself at this level.

Third Eye Motorsports pride themselves on being Australia's premier driver development program; as one of the leading programs in the entire Pacific region, their drivers hail from Asia and the Pacific to hone and prove their skills around the world. From the countrysides of Europe to Japan's winding hills, its drivers tour the world in search of places to race and opponents to challenge. Their Chevrolet Corvette C7 JS.R is tuned to easily eke out every last tenth of performance at the limit; with improved suspension and chassis, the normally power-hungry Corvette is now a great - if rather tough to handle - all-rounder. Driving under this team's wings for the season are Ruby "Atomic" Reiuji and Sakura Komeiji, an explosive contrast of a psychotic, on-the-limit qualifying specialist and a gentle, graceful Endurance racer at heart. They both possess immense talent, but will it be enough for top of the rankings? Only time will tell...

  • As with IMAS Performance Moe Moe, the IMAS governing body is an Idolmaster reference.
  • It should be no surprise that Sebastien Nogaro is a reference to a certain other Sebastien.
  • Rhys Stridberg is a combination of Rhys Millen, a hillclimb and drift competitor, and Riesbyfe Stridberg, a character from the Melty Blood series of fighting games.
  • Shouta Sakai is a reference to two characters from anime series Shakugan no Shana: his surname is from Yuji Sakai, main hero, and Shouta has a fiery, aggressive temperament, like the main heroine of the series, Shana.
  • Henri de Tristain must have been a princess in his past life if his name is of any indication.
  • Third Eye Motorsports is a name reference to Satori and Koishi Komeiji, Touhou Project characters who have visible "third eyes".
  • Despite blatantly being a girl's name, Ruby Reiuji is a male. He's also much closer to Utsuho Reiuji from Touhou than he is Ruby Rose from RWBY. He continues the running gag of male racers having feminine names, though unlike the previous examples, his name is NOT Madoka.
  • As with his teammate Ruby, Haruka Komeiji is also a dude, and thus also continues the running gag of male racers with girly names.

Post Re: [gtc] [for] Haruna's World of Racing; NEW! American U-En
I just read a few of my previous posts and realized I did something infinitely stupid. The actual Ultimate Endurance League of the Americas car and track packs have now been posted. Before that, I ended up uploading the European Ultimate Endurance Championship files TWICE! :rofl: :liar: :doh:

Everything has been fixed now, so please re-download the packs if you're still interested in the series! :bg:

Post Haruna's World of Racing PART 9: PARC Supreme Taikyu
PARC Saikou no Taikyu Challenge
Strategy reigns supreme in this test of Endurance.

Discipline: Endurance
Categories: GT Endurance AM (Tier C)


Category Introduction:
For many years, the PRO category of Endurance racing in Asia has stayed strong, with legendary battles and crowd-pleasingly spectacular machines, and it would be a tradition that would soon take hold in the Americas and Europe. In the early 2000's, the GT-E PRO class was made a global category, with local variations being prohibited. This stabilized GT Endurance racing at the top levels immensely, but the AM category had never experienced similar levels of stability in any form other than in name. Every two or three years, the class suffered "category upgrades" and numerous rule changes to please various manufacturers. In 2009 this would turn against the World Racing Authority's favor, as the class would burst from a global-scale boycott from various teams and makes involved due to rapidly skyrocketing costs to manufacture and maintain the vehicles. Sound familiar?

The World Racing Authority needed a class to fill the gap above the Clubsport GT cars, which could not effectively prepare drivers for the GT-E PRO cars on their own. This new class had to be affordable to teams who could only afford yearly - if that - upgrades, and manufacturers of diverse backgrounds and philosophies. It needed to be a class where a manufacturer or tuner could come in, and fight fairly right from the start. Though the new GT Endurance AM was initially just Clubsport GTs in carbon fiber wrapping, fender flares, and a bit more power, they quickly evolved into the super-tuned super cars we know today. With a cost cap effectively averting teams from massively over-investing to gain huge advantages over others, the class is now nearly every bit as awesome as its PRO counterpart; exotic machines loved by super car fans all over the world, rising stars from all over the world, and a heavily rejuvenated interest in Endurance racing as a whole.

Series Background:
The Supreme Endurance Challenge is a series that can be said to be the meeting point between traditional Endurance racing teams and Pro Tuned tuning houses; with the cars being easily related to by fans on both sides, many of the teams here use the series as a springboard into higher tier series in both disciplines. Due to the popularity of the modification scene in Asia, the entry lists are often overrun with teams hailing from there. Though it is a stepping stone series to the J-SA GT Masters and the PARC Super Modified Masters, the competition is even fiercer here due to so many cars being potentially competitive.

The Cars:
Spoiler: show
The modern GT Endurance AM class of cars takes equal inspirations from the Super Modified and GT Endurance PRO regulations. Compared to previous generations, the class has been heavily deregulated to cater to a wide variety of manufacturers, with safety and cost caps being the motivating factor or reducing costs. In contrast to the Clubsport GT cars below them, even the weakest and lightest of cars competing here are putting out over 500 horsepower, a figure not meant to be laughed at when combined with how much lighter these cars are over their Clubsport counterparts.

Because of how liberal the regulations are, many cars are overbuilt for this class, resulting in very powerful cars being toned down somewhat for GT-E AM performance balancing parameters. The main thing holding these cars back is that they are slightly grip-limited at low speeds, and you should thus be extra smooth in slow corners.

The Teams:
Spoiler: show
Ai Heart Competition are a back-to-basics Endurance and Pro Tuned racing team based mainly in China. With a focus on driver development over other factors, the team itself has few victories to claim of its own, but many of its former drivers have thanked this team for giving them the support needed to move up. The team's Audi R8 LMS Ultra is a big threat on tracks with lots of short straights and sweeping corners, and with improvements to the chassis to reduce weight and grip better, easier to drive as well. Driving for the team this season are Australian touring car talent-in-training Mike Sawatari, and his teammate Shiru Wang is a recent Super Modified driver who ultimately couldn't find a ride. Though talented in their own right, the team are outdone by rivals with even better race packages.

The Archetype Racing Club is a team run by a playboy by the name of Andreas Brunestud. With a strong desire to escape what he saw as a boring socialite life, Brunestud used his connections to the old guard of wealth to buy out several racing teams in Europe and Asia. Though the team is basically a playboy's plaything (ha), Andreas takes his team management equally as serious as the pros. His team's McLaren 650S GT3 doesn't have much development behind it, but it does address the key weakness in the original package, improving acceleration and speed significantly. Hisui and Kohaku Motegi are one of the team's most beloved driver pairings, and it's not hard to see why; they're young twin sisters with infectious levels of enthusiasm and love for the sport. Not bad for a mid-card team!

Clara Crescendo Carsport may be a team based around an idol singer that doesn't even actually exist, but with the power of crowd funding from hobbyists around the world, they're just as serious about winning as any other. Though the team operates on a relatively small budget compared to their rivals, they have their priorities set straight; the BMW Z4 GT3 they field is a nimble machine with a little more horsepower, making it a good all-rounder. Driving for the team this season are cafe manager turned racer Zunko Tohoku, and Clubsport GT graduate Kenshin Nakahara. Though not quite good enough for the front rows, the battle they'll be having with the Archetype Racing Club will certainly be an entertaining one. Place your bets!

Genki World Racing Team are rivals to Aotech Bio-Racing Team; though the companies are good friends and even cooperate on an everyday basis, the companies split due to a difference in philosophies. Contrasting their rivals, Genki WRT are a team focused on everyday, if rather incremental and ultimately temporary improvements. Disciplined to think unconventionally, the team are surprisingly good at keeping it cool under pressure for a team so young. The Einzbern Iris I7 R-GT3 they field utilizes a variety of current and next-generation biofuel and aerodynamic solutions, improving power and speed. Despite his shyness, Midori Asahina is surprisingly anxious to show what he's made of; rookie driver Kaoru Nagato is more content trying to stay out of trouble. If Midori can start off on the right foot, this could be a team to look out for.

Frontier Autosport are a junior team to Uguu Power Sports, spurred on by the dreams of Yasline Marina, an Emirati touring car racer from the team who wanted to see a dream team of drivers from new frontiers (hence the name). Like their parent team, Frontier are famous for their damn-near endless charity and love for the fans and sport. However, just like their parent team, their love for the fans and their charitable, noble causes are no weakness. Frontier's Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 has gone on a significant diet as well as an aerodynamic improvement, making it a formidable all-rounder. Driving for the team in this series is Time Attack specialists Arta Baris and Valerie Emile. Valerie admits she's not quite cut out for a championship run yet, but Arta Baris has every right to be hyped this season; she has a pretty good chance at winning, and this could be a life-changing season for her.

Hakimi Auto Racing Project originated from Emirati dance music composing star Rushdi Hakimi, famous particularly for his chilled-out, smooth musical style. His first racing experience was... er, questionable, but after the speed bug bit him, he realized it was no way for him to go. Using his wealth to fund train himself in the art of auto racing and start a pro racing team of his own, Rushdi found a new venue for which his beats could be heard and remembered. The Reiter-prepared Gallardo GT3 FL-II is a powerhouse with some minor chassis and aero upgrades; ideal for pro drivers and fast tracks. The team's drivers for this season are the open-wheel specialist Hanako Fukui and the daydreaming Endurance rookie Sana Hakimi. Though Sana lacks experience, Hanako is a pretty good driver and should be expected to threaten if not actually take the top spots.

Honekawa Racing Team are the high-speed laboratory for Honekawa Rubber and Tire Company; with many of their products being derived from motorsports applications, the Endurance discipline is the final testing phase for many of their products, a grueling test of longevity, pace, and ease of use. Although unsurprising that the team supplies a number of other teams, their "works" team is first in line for the latest experimental upgrades. The Einzbern Iris I7 R-GT3 they've raced for years since its days as a Grail War cup car has seen a wide variety of changes, but the newest upgrades for this season are an improved chassis, suspension, and a new tire compound derived from their Super Modified program. Testing the new compound in anger in this league are Tier 2 Modified test driver Jiro Kaneko and rookie Han Ji. While their car is good, their drivers lack the experience needed to win.

J.S. Staff Tuning House are an up and coming name in Japan's tuning scene, focusing on a unique mix of minimalist, compact style and proven racing tech for both the track and street. Despite their modest funding, the team has a massive following in their home country, a number readily reflected by the number of ascended fanboys among their ranks. The Nissan Nismo GT-R GT3 this squad fields is an improved all-rounder, but is most at home on tracks with lots of long, medium speed sweepers. Representing the team in this series is upcoming Endurance star and amateur manga artist Naoki Sanzenin; his teammate is the infamous socialite pay-driver Louis "The Zero" Valliere. Louis is a spoiled brat who knows little discipline; it'll be up to Naoki to bring the wins home, and although his chances are good, he won't get it without a big fight.

Lemon Books Grand Prix Team are the absolute last company you would expect to have sponsored a pro racing team. A company whose primary product is adult fan comics, they are a highly popular publishing group for aspiring Japanese comic artists. Looking to expand internationally, a race team travelling all over Asia and the Pacific seemed like the best choice to them. Perhaps appropriately for their pro racing aspirations, the team's Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 is a pure powerhouse that forgives no fools. Flying the team's colors in this series are Asia-Pacific GP-C champion Jun Park and racer-in-training Nano Aida. Although the team package looks good on paper, Nano is absolutely outmatched by every other driver in the field, and has every right to be scared racing at this level.

Mirai Millennium Motorsport is the pet project of a famous Japanese culture research group; aiming to be Japan's top driver development program, the team has paired experienced engineers with young and upcoming racers. This combination of established talent and rising stars has allowed the team to quickly come through the ranks. In contrast to Hakimi's weight and aero-focused Reiter Gallardo GT3 FL-II, Mirai's take on the Italian GT racer is a specialist on stop and go circuits, with gobs of power and improved chassis grip. For this season, GT racing veteran Davide Stancheris and head engineer Eiji Seiun will be driving for the team. If the other teams want to win the title, they'll have to get past Davide first; and if he doesn't win it, he won't go down without one hell of a fight.

Rising Dragon Autosport are a unification between some of China's best racing teams, founded with the goal of showing teams from other countries that they mean business. Thanks to this union of teams, Rising Dragon are well-funded and well-suited to competition at the continental level. In keeping with their cultural and technical philosophies, their Fate TH58 R3 Scuderia is a balanced car that is light on its feet, useful on many tracks but especially good on the high-speed winding bits. Under the team's banner for this series are Endurance specialist Shu-Zan Xun and her hard-working rookie accomplice Milorad Vlahovic. Their am-rookie lineup is the key weakness in this league; Shu is a reasonably competent racer, but Milorad is far behind on technical skill.

TOMOKO Powered Garage are ranked in Japan as one of the three shops that make up the "Tuner Trifecta". Specializing in developing "crate" engines for highly popular Japanese sports cars, Tomoko Ishigawa has always prided herself on the strength and reliability of the engines built by her wonderful little shop. Prior to the WRA formation of the Pro Tuned ladder, Tomoko had used Endurance racing as the benchmark for performance and reliability. Her team's newly obtained Nissan Nismo GT-R GT3 continues the tradition of improved power and aerodynamics, allowing the handling monster to tackle faster tracks with ease. This season will be one focused on driver development, however, as Chinatsu Miyamoto and Hayate Sugiwara have never turned a lap in true anger in the GT-E AM cars.

Trivia:
Spoiler: show
  • Archetype Racing Club were once Arc's Racing Club. The name was altered to make any potential references less obvious.
  • The Motegi twins are a twin reference (get it!?). There's a pair of cute twin maids in the fighting game series Melty Blood whose given names are the same , and there happens to be a race track by that name (DO YOU GET IT!?).
  • Once again continuing the gag of boys with feminine names, meet Midori Asahina, who will definitely not shoot you with his Midorin Beamu.
  • Hakimi Auto Racing Project were once Hanako Auto Racing Project, but their name and team owner was retconned due to the already huge over-saturation of Japanese teams.
  • Lemon is a term used in the various animated and comic series fan bases; in this case, it refers to risque written content.
  • Davide Stancheris is an actual driver in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo series. The livery for this team is modeled after that of Emmebi Motorsport, which has Mirai Millennium and Culture Japan as sponsors.
  • 386 and 486 are Chinatsu and Hayate's race numbers, but they're also Intel microprocessors.

Post Re: Haruna's World of Racing PART 10: Asian GP-C Trophy
PARC Asia-Pacific GP-C Trophy
Speed and consistency must be together as one for this series' winners.
Discipline: Grand Prix
Category: GP Division C (Tier C)


Category Introduction:
As the first tier in truly professional Grand Prix racing a driver will most likely climb through in his or her journey to the World Driver's Grand Prix, this is a category that has taken many different forms. Its cars are often a period piece to top-level GP cars of the era, and a casual fan will often say they look like a "baby GP car". Highly popular among driver development programs for large teams, the class has served as the crossroads in which nearly all of the disciplines cross over.

The category has traditionally been strictly a "spec" series: with tight controls on engine size, type, dimensions, and so forth, teams must often rely on their drivers for success. This is a big part of the cross-disciplinary appeal; drivers looking to prove their own worth often venture into a GP-C series.

Series Background:
The Asia-Pacific GP-C Trophy has traditionally been a league targeted towards younger drivers looking to fight their way into a J-SA GT Masters or the Super Grand Prix (now also a part of PARC). Teams from all over Asia looked to this series to pick out potential future talents; the level of competition between them in the late 80's bred drivers like current Japanese Endurance racing legends Haruna Tsuchigami and Sora Kuroi, both who started their pro racing careers here as an example. That was back then, however; in recent years, the series has taken a huge downfall in reputation due to numerous Super Modified drivers setting up shop in the GP-C Trophy and using the series as their personal ego-feeder. In particular, the last ten years have been dominated by Barry Armstrong, who won the championship for nine straight years (he finished 3rd in his first season).

The Cars:
Spoiler: show
Although many companies supply GP-C chassis and engines both in real-life and in World of Racing, for the sake of simplicity, all teams and drivers in the WOR car packs use the Formula Scarlet Junior, an archetypal car for the class. Despite making "only" around 350 horsepower, these cars are literally half the weight of a GT Endurance PRO car, and thus have surprisingly high acceleration.

Typical for a GP car, of course, precision and patience is required to get the most out of the car over the race distance. The handling is very quick and twitchy; because of the relatively middling downforce levels, expect to get loose fairly easily. Of course, minimizing sliding is the best way to go fast here.


The Teams:
Spoiler: show
After School Race Time are a team funded almost entirely by team founder Tsumuji Kotobuki, a student at the Mie University. Hailing from a wealthy family, he founded the team as an outlet for like-minded students to pursue their dreams as racing drivers and team personnel. The program's GP-C car is slightly better down long straights than normal thanks to a drag-optimized aero package, but their car remains basic. Representing the team in this series are sisters and Tier 2 Modified regulars Yui and Ui Hashimoto, both rookies to GP racing. Expect middling results at best.

Ai Heart Competition are a back-to-basics Endurance and Pro Tuned racing team based mainly in China. With a focus on driver development over other factors, the team itself has few victories to claim of its own, but many of its former drivers have thanked this team for giving them the support needed to move up. Their GP-C program is the start of a newly started expansion to other disciplines; importance was set on ease of use, so the chassis was upgraded for improved handling. Hyun-Haneul Choe and Emil Kosar represent the team here, after having graduated from GP-R competition. A middle-of-the-road team.

AoTech BioRacing Team are Japan's leader in refining the art of high-performance applications of biofuel technology. Newcomers to the Grand Prix discipline, the team went from supplier to competitor for the discipline last year. Due to strict controls on engine tuning and fuel type, the gains made in increasing engine power have been limited, but still noticeable. For this season, the team is represented by Sakura Kagome and Miki Suzuki, both drivers new to the discipline and tier as a whole. It's highly unlikely they'll be much of a threat even to mid-pack.

Dango Alliance Racing have a silly team name, but a seriously committed up and coming squad. Aiming to eventually become J-SA GT champions, the team plan on using the GP-C series as a feeder category in the future. Their small size, limited budget, and limited research staff mean that the Dangos have a completely standard F-Scarlet Junior, making their cars the slowest. While Yuki Okazaki is definitely a pay driver in it for the joy of racing, his teammate Kotori Matsushita is a potential Endurance racing talent. Given how slow the team's cars are, Kotori has a lot to prove...

Empress Autosport are an alliance of wealthy celebrities with strong desires to seriously compete in professional racing. Insistent on fighting it out on their own strengths, the team has come a very long way since its founding six years ago, and while still consisting entirely of pay drivers, are at least pretty good ones. Their GP-C car has been tuned for increased tire and chassis grip, making it easier to drive consistently quick. Racing for the team this season are voice actress May Yumizuka and newcomer gravure idol Kaguya Aoyama, both of whom got their starts off in karts. Consider them 'best of the rest'.

Genki World Racing Team are rivals to Aotech Bio-Racing Team; though the companies are good friends and even cooperate on an everyday basis, the companies split due to a difference in philosophies. Contrasting their rivals, Genki WRT are a team focused on everyday, if rather incremental and ultimately temporary improvements. Disciplined to think unconventionally, the team are surprisingly good at keeping it cool under pressure for a team so young. Like their blue-green rivals, the Genki GP-C car is also a little more powerful than the rest of the pack. Upcoming Endurance talent Midori Asahina and disgusting misogynist game developer Haruna Matsumori represent the team this season. While Midori's skill is admirable, Haruna is a disgrace to people of his name.

Kiwi Berry Racing Project are highly controversial in the Grand Prix scene, most especially for its lead driver and team founder Barry Armstrong, who uses his age as an excuse to beat down on aspiring GP drivers in the lower divisions. The Kiwis' GP-C car has had an incremental improvement on its aerodynamics, allowing for it to handle slightly better at high speeds, fitting since Barry has an aversion to slow corners. For this season, the team founder will be assisted by GP racing rookie Mark Ruapuna for his attempt at making the championship record ten in a row. Count on Barry to win the championship yet again should his rivals make mistakes; Mark, on the other hand, will struggle to stay out of last.

Lemon Books Grand Prix Team are the absolute last company you would expect to have sponsored a pro racing team. A company whose primary product is adult fan comics, they are a highly popular publishing group for aspiring Japanese comic artists. Looking to expand internationally, a race team travelling all over Asia and the Pacific seemed like the best choice to them. To help condition their drivers for the Super Grand Prix, the team has improved chassis dynamics, increasing grip all-around. Hyun-Jun Han has been the team's mainstay for a few years now, and is joined this season by Katsuo Wakihisa, a Pro Tuned driver looking to branch out. Han may be the only driver who can take Barry off of the top spot, but whether that actually happens is anyone's guess.

Mirai Millennium Motorsport is the pet project of a famous Japanese culture research group; aiming to be Japan's top driver development program, the team has paired experienced engineers with young and upcoming racers. This combination of established talent and rising stars has allowed the team to quickly come through the ranks. To help train their younger drivers in handling Grand Prix racers, the team's GP-C car has slightly higher downforce to help instill the courage needed to corner at high speeds properly. Representing the team are engineer-and-racer Chitose Shirasawa and rookie racer Haruka Suenaga. Considering their skill level, it'll be tough for them to break away from mid-pack.

Namusan Racing Sports is a tuning shop that centers itself on the 'soul' of driving; restoration of the original spirit is their motto, and it applies to their racing program as well. A team focused on spirituality, the team often tunes cars to be very reliant on driver skill rather than brute force, and it shows in their GP-C car. With an aero package designed for slightly lower drag, drivers who drive well can take advantage of the car's higher speeds. Sayuri Minami is the team co-founder and a regular driver for the team; she's joined in this series by Minoru Murasa, an engineer with a background in the local Pro Tuned events. Although Sayuri is right when she says she's not good enough for top tier racing, she is front-of-the-pack material here. Minoru on the other hand... not so much.

Third Eye Motorsports pride themselves on being Australia's premier driver development program; as one of the leading programs in the entire Pacific region, their drivers hail from Asia and the Pacific to hone and prove their skills around the world. From the countrysides of Europe to Japan's winding hills, its drivers tour the world in search of places to race and opponents to challenge. Their GP-C race package is top tier, with good improvements to traction and response, a necessity to its drivers for this season, GP-R graduates Amy and May Futami. The Futamis should be grateful they have such a good car; without it, they won't even have a chance to break away from mid-pack.

Tsuchigami no Kyojin were once just a loving couple in their local street racing scene. Though the Garage House Tsuchigami brand has been one of the longest-running service brands in the country, their involvement in racing was kept at a relatively local level. This all changed in the 90's once said loving couple wanted to ditch the streets and hit the track. With the goal of training their drivers for the Super Grand Prix and the J-SA GT Masters, the team has improved power and lowered aero drag, enabling the team to be a powerhouse on tracks with lots of straights. Nanami Kanzaki and Suzuka Tsuchigami are both newcomers to the category, having only just graduated from the Rookie division last year. It shows.

Trivia:
Spoiler: show
  • Yui and Ui Hashimoto are definitely not actually Hirasawa family members.
  • Aotech BioRacing's team members are SUPPOSED to be Madoka Magika references, but the driver names are so heavily obscured that the reference is completely lost.
  • Amusingly, despite usually being a girl's name, some boys apparently do go by the name Sakura, and not as an alias, either! Miki Suzuki, however, is clearly a guy with a feminine name.
  • Aside from being a Jet Alliance Racing parody, Dango Alliance Racing consists mainly of gender and name swaps of various characters from the visual novel, CLANNAD.
  • Haruna Matsumori is an alias of the creator of the World of Racing car packs. His poor driving ability reflects his actual results in various competitions in GR.
  • Just like his teammate Midori, Haruna's name is also meant for girls.
  • Aside from an actual fruit, Kiwi Berry is also the name of a tank-like fighter in the scrolling shooter R-TYPE FINAL.
  • Sayuri's race number is missing the last piece of the goroawase word play: her race number is 'na-mu', while the team name is 'na-mu-san' (763).
  • Amy and May Futami often wonder if they were idol singers in a past life.
  • Continuing the goroawase word play, Nanami's race number is also literally her name as well: 'nana-mi' (73).

No. All World of Racing series are fictional, even though the car packs feature a variety of real-world and "realistic fictional" vehicles.
