Introduction to the SA simHTC Series

1.0 INTRODUCTION

The South African Simulation Historic Touring Car Championship (SA simHTC Series) is an entirely new concept to Sim Race South Africa and its first season will start on Monday 08 February 2016. The championship is inspired by, influenced by, and modeled partly on the real world HSCC Super Touring Car Trophy. The HSCC Super Touring Car Trophy is a championship that allows all the great touring cars from the past to compete together.

The SA simHTC Series will make use of Assetto Corsa, created by Kunos Simulazoni, as its base platform as well as its Alfa Romeo 166 Ti DTM, BMW E30 M3 DTM, Mercedes-Benz 190E Evo DTM and the Ford Escort RS1600. The Ford Escort RS1600 will be used in a separate class. (Class B)

The 2016 SA simHTC series will span 10 months, with mostly one round (two sprint races) per month from 08 February 2016 to 28 November 2016.

Drivers will be required to be up to date with their Sim Race South Africa HTC or HTC Team membership fees after they have applied for the championship (SEE HERE).
