I'm in GT Daz Bock put me in gt2 with the Jag for now but I will prob change that before next week.

I can't race or host every week is this going to be a problem?

Also how do we ensure everyone pits?

So why are these banned Callum? I can understand Vipers, you say use LMP1 cars and these 3 cars are the pinnacle of the motorsport world and TBH the rest of the LMP1 cars are crap accept for the Aston Lola.

I can understand that but the other options ain't the best, the best of the rest is the Aston then the Acura and Bentley, the one way to make the LMP1 better is allowing them to go to X rating, as I have tried the peugeots, Audi, bentley and Aston and they are all capable of the same speeds and handling that would be my suggestion.

nah no upgrades at all.

its all in the way you tune your car, a tune can lower your lap time by as much as 3 seconds over standard.

so the same restictions apply in the prototypes as in GT2. it makes for more interesting racing like myself and gsi had for 5-6 laps stuck along side each other for 8 corners of the lap

Will put myself down, but if we fill up, I'm more than happy to drop out - I'm certain to miss the one next week and likely to miss the one after that - should be back onshore for Le Mans, but I won't take a spot if someone who can race them all wants in.

One suggestion I thought of is to allow the diesels in and allow the slower(petrol) P1s to take their air restrictor off - this takes the Lola Aston to the same PI as the Pug - and is pretty true to real life - petrols have a bigger restrictor than diesels. Doesnt make the power output too stupid, but you get closer top speeds (200-210 with a bit of aero on the mulsanne) - means we have 4 more cars (hopefully 5 if T10 give us the R18) and we can have the Petrol/diesel balancing argument that they have for real smile

I can do as long as it definately starts by 8:30, as have university football matches on wednesday and so have to be done to go out on the lash. Plus if it's an away game we tend to do the port challenge on the way back, could be interesting driving prototypes after a bottle of port...... biggrin

I'll try my hardest as wednesday is my most quiet night, however i may have to bail on some events. I'm very tempted to choose the ford GT however Calgon was just that bit quickerin the 458 im not sure the ford is competetive!

I'd be interested if the cars were unbanned...

In LMP1 I'd probaby use the Mazda B207(?), and in R2 I'd probably use the... hmmm... Mazda Furai? If people want to use a Dodge then *shrug*, they'll be quick. If they're a quick driver anyway then they'll win. Such is the nature of motorsport.

I'd echo this. I would be interested, but all you've done is ban a number of cars to get people driving others, creating a race series that will force people to use the same 'other' cars instead.

If it is centered around tuning, then force a PI limit and let people use what they wantwho can really make the best car overall. Just a thought.

same here, I'm not a fan of "banning" cars from series...let the PI limit sort them out (that is how the game works)

I think the only reason that these restrictions have been placed on is to reflect the previous OP's suggestions that we raced with last night.

I don't care if we open it up to everything that the game calls a GT2 / LMP1 as there arn't that many anyway. As for upgrades go you can do very little to these cars anyway so again it doesn't bother me if upgrades are allowed.

Seeing as I am an appauling tuner, upgrades would work for me because I can then use storefront tunes (can't find any non-upgraded ones).

BTW though I don't think that the game classes the Furai as a GT2 car though and opening it up to all R2 and R1 cars kind of takes away the point of the series doesn't it?
