The Canon Mega GT 200 (Mega GT) is Really Rubbish Racing's nineteenth Special Event, the third to be run under the "Special Event Token" system.

This event is run by veteran RRR racer PJ, and will be a challenging multi-class endurance race featuring a radical new qualifying and invitation system.


General Format

The Canon Mega GT 200 is an endurance race consisting of 35 laps, taking place at Suzuka Circuit. The event is the first in RRR history to use a "double invite system" and a large simulated grid split over multiple lobbies.

An initial qualifying session will take place before the race itself, and the results of this will determine not only the grid order of the race, but also the construction of the final event lobbies. Because of this, the race will ensure that every driver is matched up with as many others as possible of a similar pace level.

The event features 2 competitively balanced classes which will provide a wide variety of challenges, while also giving drivers the choice to race the way they want to.

Cars

Overview

Mega GT features 2 car classes for drivers to choose from. Both classes have their differences to give everybody an option, regardless of their racing preferences.

Features R2 M500 R3 M350
Real-Life Equivalent Super GT 500 Super GT 300
Car Selection Performanced Balanced Single Make
Tyre Compound Drag Slicks Race Slicks
Upgrade Path Locked Locked
Tuning? Yes Yes

Both classes are scored individually, but can also race against each other for overall position. There will be points in the race where the M500s are faster than the M350s, and points where the M350s will be the fastest cars on the track.

The cars are built in such a way that the Mega 350s will finish the race within 1-2 laps of the Mega 500s.

However, a fast driver with a bit of fortune could theoretically win the overall event while driving a Mega 350 car; choosing the "lower class" doesn't automatically mean that you can't win the event overall.

Drivers can tune their cars however they wish, but they must use the upgrade items mentioned below.
