Well I already want to have a bit of a practice race with the season 19 LMP1/GT3 cars, but not an enduro. I want to give people the chance to try some different cars and classes on a Tuesday race night, rather than a full blown enduro. More like 2 x 30 min races or maybe even 3 x 20 min races, as an opportunity for people to try different cars.

Okay, then why don't we utilise one or some of the cars from the latest update (not the DLC) Anyone tried the Audi TT RS (VLN)  though not sure what car you would pair it with?  Or a single make Mazda 787B.  AC really needs some proper race packs rather than random car releases.

the gilles villeneuve track seems quite nice after a few laps. not extremely difficult.

GT40 vs 330P4 vs 908LH at Daytona.
Or GT40 vs 908LH vs 412P at 'Le Grand Circuit' (LeMans '67) (917 with full ballast and restrictor?)

The 412P was the customer version of the 330P4, a 330P3 chassis with a carby vs injection version of the P4 engine. Available for free to those who don't have the Ferrari DLC. (wink, the DLC is also available for free, wink, though online compatibility is an unknown as I have gone legit and buy all the DLC).
Personally I can't not afford all the DLC.

Raced it for a season at ROOZ, asthmatic piece of shit. The other one is OK.

Haven't really had any experience with either.  I'm just trying to find a car we haven't really raced much if at all.   I'd be happy with the Cobra. But not against the porsche gt1, 962c either.

Lotus 3-Eleven, as the "fast car"? Could chuck in the Mercedes SLS AMG GT3 to go with it (close in lap times), as well as the Porsche 908 LH to go with the Ford.

Thanks, but in general, we use stock KS cars on Tuesdays.

I concur.

Bump. :P

And the 412P was only a suggestion to stand in for the 330P4 for those poor sods that spent $700 dollars on their wheel and now can't afford the DLC. ???

Tried this truck a couple of weeks ago, single player @ nurb sprint after the Escort round. Kinda fun, something different but it didn't have tyre sounds for me. Might be cool for a fun run maybe? Haven't looked into how to fix mods, also tried the camaro gt3 which had the same problem with tyres but the engine sounds good.

A test version of Daytona I have whipped up for your consideration.

Thanks Seanus, will give it a go. Maybe the GT2 class cars would be good for an enduro here?

Daytona's great. Thanks GzeroD.

So I'm going to call it:

2 hr race at Daytona Road Course (race starting at 8:15 pm).
Like we did for the Nords 2hr enduro, we'll qualify through the preceding week on the practice server.

Cars:
Corvette C7R (50% restrictor)
Ferrari 458 GT2
BMW M3 GT2

Fuel 0.8x (so cars can go 1h30 to 1h45 on one tank), to widen the pit window.
