Announcing The Privateer’s Pitbox’ SuperTrofeo!

After our succesful Ginetta Cup, people wanted more. No, I wanted more. Based on the survey among our drivers, the Lamborghini Huracan ST proved to be the most popular option. The Privateer’s Pitbox is therefore proud to present: The Privateer’s Pitbox’ SuperTrofeo!

Below, I will detail all information regarding this new ACC Championship. Already sold on the idea of racing the awesome Lamborghini Huracan SuperTrofeo? Click the link below!

Here’s a table of content for this post to quickly jump to the information you’re looking for!

There is no official broadcast to these races. I will stream my own perspective myself, and you are free to do so too if you want. Furthermore, I will create video’s using the in-game highlight reels like I did for the Ginetta Cup. See these video’s for an example.

Championship format

  • Single car (Lamborghini Huracan SuperTrofeo);
  • 6x ‘feature’ races, 1x ‘endurance’ race;

Feature race details

The feature race have a revised format compared to our previous Ginetta Cup. Free practice is shortened from 30 to 20 minutes, while qualifying is shortened from 15 to 10 minutes. The race duration is lengthened by 10 minutes, from 30 to 40 minutes.

To offer our drivers another challenge, there is now one mandatory pitstop which our drivers are free to strategise. Drivers need to change tires during this pitstop.

  • Free Practice duration: 20 minutes;
  • Qualifying duration: 10 minutes;
  • Race duration: 40 minutes;
  • Pitstop: one mandatory tire change, open strategy.
  • Formation lap: full;
  • Weather: random (see below);
  • Points: regular.

Endurance race details

The season-closing Endurance event makes a return, and will once again be for double points. The duration remains unchanged, with our drivers this time having to endure 90 minutes of Spa-Franchorchamps, as well as at least one mandatory tire change. Double points will be awarded for this race.

  • Free Practice duration: 30 minutes;
  • Qualifying duration: 20 minutes;
  • Race duration: 90 minutes;
  • Pitstop: one mandatory tire change, open strategy.
  • Formation lap: full;
  • Weather: random (see below);
  • Points: double (including bonus points, see below).

Scoring system

The base scoring system is equal to the Ginetta Cup. The winner takes home 60 points, second takes 52, third 45, etc. The top 25 finishers earn points. The whole distribution can be seen in the chart below:

The points distribution for the SuperTrofeo

Bonus points

Like in our Ginetta Cup, there are also bonus points to be earned. I have tweaked the bonus points a bit based on my observations from the Ginetta Cup in order to keep the standings table closer together. I also added a category to award drivers who persevere through hardship.

Furthermore, I added some conditions to the bonus points system in order to make it impossible to ‘game’ the system.

  • Qualifying: 1st: 5, 2nd: 4, 3rd: 3, 4th: 2, 5th: 1;
  • Fastest lap: 5
  • MVP: 5*
  • Luck Loser: 2**

*The ‘MVP’ bonus points are awarded to the person who gained most places during the race relative to their starting position. In order to be eligible, the MVP needs to have set at least one valid laptime during the qualifying session. If two or more people achieve equal results, the bonus points will be shared among them.

**The ‘Lucky Loser’ bonus point is given to the person who lost most positions relative to their starting position. In order to be eligible (to exclude people who rage quit during the race), the Lucky Loser needs to have covered at least 90% race distance. If two or more people achieve equal results, the bonus points will be shared among them.

Event configuration – weather settings

The weather settings are consistent across all sessions. They aren’t, however, consistent. They are set to random, but they start from the same settings. These settings are more lenient than used during the Ginetta Cup after feedback on those weather settings proved divisive.

  • Ambient temperature: 15 °C
  • Weather randomness: 5
  • Cloud level: 0.4
  • Rain: 0.2

If, after the first two races, these settings are too extreme I reserve the right to change these parameters to increase driveability.

Custom liveries

Custom liveries are allowed and encouraged (but not mandatory)! If you have your own custom livery, feel free to share the files on the discord. Before the championship starts, I will compile a pack of liveries to download for all competitors so everyone gets to see your creation.

If you want to know how to make a custom livery, I just wrote an extensive guide on how to make them which you can see here.

Don’t have a custom livery or don’t want to make one? Feel free to place a request in our discord and I will make a variant to the livery (as seen in the screenshots in this post) to your liking. More on that in a subsequent post, but below you can see some examples. Not only do you get your preferred custom colors, but also your own name and nationality on the door and a custom logo!

#325, J. Jongen
#233, T. Roper
#191, P. Doležal
