2014/15 GEARS >>

The 2013-14 Whitebread Knockoff Watches GT Endurance Auto Racing Series (GEARS) is the first season of Really Rubbish Racing Special Events that will take place over the course of a year. Rather than being conventional standalone Special Events, the results of each will be tallied together into an overall points-scoring championship. As the name suggests, the string of events will be a series of endurance races, 2 hours long, on various fictional and real-world circuits.

The final round of the series will make up the GT classes of the third Bon Anniversaire event.

Cars

Like the GT Super Sprint Series, GEARS is designed for GT3 specification cars to compete. The selection of cars you can choose from is listed below, along with the upgrade guidelines.

The livery guidelines for this series can be found on the forum.
