The Grand Touring Cup (Sportsman Division), a premier LOTA racing series, puts drivers in the high performance sedan-based GTR cars of Live For Speed. The FXO GTR (FXR), the XR GTR (XRR) and FZ50 GTR (FZR) allow for close, door to door racing, yet will challenge every driver to get the most out of each car. With each car having its own advantages and disadvantages, drivers must carefully choose the car that fits their driving style best:
- XR GTR (XRR): Turbo-charged and rear wheel drive, the XRR will deceive you with its speed, and its tendancy to make you cry when you aren't paying attention.
- FXO GTR (FXR): All-wheel drive and turbo-charged, the FXR is the easiest to drive and will eat up the other two in the corners.
- FZ5 GTR (FZR): A naturally aspirated rear wheel drive monster, the FZR has an insatiable thirst for fuel and plenty of power at the rear wheels to keep you on your toes. Because of it's natural speed advantage, FZR drivers will carry an extra 15kg of weight.
The two featured Championships will be the Squad Championship, based on 3-driver squads, and the traditional individual title. Drivers will count their best 7 events toward the driver's title, with bonuses for competing in each event during the season, and squads will count all points earned towards the squad title. The GTC-Sportsman will use the standard LOTA points table with the available performance bonuses for qualifying on the pole, leading a lap, fastest lap, highest climber, and laptime stability.
