Classicsracer              V8 Challenge 2021

Battle of the V8s

The Classicsracer Italia cup is a one-make sprint series based on

Ferrari 458 Italia Gr. 4 tuned to 375hp with a base weight of 90%.

There are eighteen 55km sprint races over six championship rounds held at circuits in Japan, the USA and Europe.

In one race of each round, drivers must choose to use the "Option" Race Super Soft tyre compound. Also, to ensure close racing, SSMD Group race management will determine the Balance of Performance according to the Driver's Level and their race performance.

The championship is open to all levels of racers from FIA Gran Turismo drivers to new drivers to e-Motorsports. SSMD Group has a Driver's Level system to ensure all levels of drivers could mix in the race.

About the SSMD Group

SSMDG Gran Turismo Championship

The history of SSMD Group Gran Turismo Championship dated back to 2009, the Gran Turismo 5 era,
where 14 drivers battle out various championships for two years.
However, as many of the drivers started their families, the racing had put to a pause.

Fast forward to August 2018, when the founder of the championship,
Franco Wong and Bem Ho connected again and gathered the drivers to launch
the SSMD Group Gran Turismo Championship. The championship started with nine drivers
to now 32 drivers and still growing.

Each season has a different Championship theme, from Touring Car Race, Japanese Performance,
Cayman Cup, Integra Cup, GT4 Championship, MX-5 Cup, JDM 280 Battle, John Cooper Cup, Porsche Sports Cup, Civic Cup and  V8 Challenge races.

Each season has six rounds, and we race one round of three races every fortnight.
There is a qualifying race to fight for the final 16 grid slots.

Since we have different levels of drivers, we rank each driver in SSMDG Driver's Level in

Gold, Silver, Bronze, Green, Blue and Dark Blue according to their experience in

Gran Turismo and Average Score per Attended Race (ASPAR) in SSMDG Gran Turismo Championship.

According to the Lap Analysis after each race, we will apply a unique Balance of Performance system to further close in the racing field for closer racing. Furthermore, to ensure the race is fair for everyone,

we apply SSMD Group Race Rules in the race to cover the ones missed by the Gran Turismo AI system.

It is great to see the championship growing by the month,
and we look forward to seeing more friends joining us.

Lastly, we would like to say THANK YOU to our Championship sponsors.
