Let's get it right ... Jean-Luc Picard never ever said "and it was so" ...That's the worst Jean-Luc Picard impersonation I've ever heard (read).I keep suggesting the long/short tail Porsche 962C.
He said "Make it so!", then it was up to someone else to "Make it so".
Sorry if I sound negative here ... but:
You mean they are finally catching up with rF2 which has had day/night forever and rain for years - including the ability to have "live" weather injected into the game.
Oh, except this will be for just one class of racing???

After the chicane, RussG re-entered the track and kept drifting from right to left into the path of Seanus, spinning him into the barriers – ballast penalty for next round for reckless re-entry causing an accident.I accept full responsibility for this one - sorry Seanus.
I bogged it down at the start and lost some places. Shayne and I had contact at the first chicane, then I had the incident with Seanus (above) and rejoined a distant last.
I had good pace so from there it was quite fun trying to claw my way back. Had some great fun racing and happy with where I finished
I have chronic bilateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow in both arms) and chronic chondromalacia (deteriorated kneecap cartilage) in both knees. The knees can play up a fair bit with racing and every now and then the elbows go off.
When they are giving trouble, I use straps to ease the pain. And yes, I'm getting old

possibly partly to blame for on off with Russ, sorry.
on lap 5, Russ had some kind of off up ahead on the fast section after turn 1. I saw him go flying off up the hill on the grass, but then he span around and came back onto the track in reverse, still spinning. I just missed him by veering left, but went onto the grass and smacked the left armco at high speed and ricocheted into the right side of the track as well. I had bad suspension damage, and crabbed around the rest of the lap with a wobbly car and a sideways steering wheel to pit for repairs, and chucked on some new rubber while I was there.All good mate, I had the slipstream down the straight, then you wandered off track at T1 and for some silly reason I followed you and gave you a bump as we both bounced off the fence. You kept going but Seanus was unable to avoid me and we had heavy contact. I went spinning off up on the right and then it brought me back down onto the track in front of Wally. He missed me but hit the barrier and went off. It was a shame because we had a great battle shaping up.
After that I just pushed trying to close the gap to the car in front, made a couple of good passes and had a good time

also - did anyone else need 170+ litres to make the race or the DFV in the Lotus rather thirsty ?I needed 178 litres in the Maki. No idea how Mael did the same sort of times and only used 165 in the same car
Very happy with my night though. Qual 3rd and finish 4th in race was more than I had wished for

Qualified 12th with Wally 13th.
I didn't have a good start and Wally got alongside. We did a few turns side by side until I had to yield and drop in behind. Then followed Wally until he pitted, knowing I was faster but he didn't make any mistakes.
I jumped Wally in the pit stop phase as he put in more fuel, as did others ...
Then caught Bacchulum. He pitted, then I pitted a few laps later, only to find that he was so far up the road that I couldn't see him.
Apparently he put in less fuel than me, even though I thought I was cutting it fine in the Maki ....
That's the way it stayed until the end.
I love these type of races

Team Maki will be supplying SNRL Racing Team with cars for the coming season, with the understanding that they should not hold up any of the factory team cars of course
The factory cars gotta keep up first e,g, Renault F1 ..

The Lotus doesn't work with the latest patch installed. I joined the server and got a blank screen. Then I tried in single offline mode and got the same thing.
I re-downloaded the Base and the patch.
Deleted all cars.
Installed the base set, and it works fine offline.
Installed the patch and it doesn't work ...

So many cars. I don't have time for testing them all. I tried the Hesketh and Tyrrell before the test race and was going to go with the Hesketh, but when I joined there was no Hesketh or Tyrrell available so I just plonked my arse in a Surtees and went for it.
I'll try to make a final decision over the weekend.

Good work!!!Wally: regarding cuts that aren't cuts. I know that PLP has the green/red light to tell you if you are going to get a cut when you come back on but I usually don't see it. Maybe make it bigger or an option to make it bigger so you can't miss the red light. I don't even know where I got the cuts last night.Take a look at the PLP app thread - there's a new version with the option to make the green/red square much bigger. By default now, it's the size of the entire app, but you can make it smaller.

I like these longer races. I don't mind if it's not all door to door racing, but instead trying to bridge that gap or hold the gap to the car behind. Also strategy decisions will come into it at different circuits where you might be happy to let people get away while your playing the long game and trying to do one less pit stop.
I had too many offs for my liking last night, but can't complain with the outcome. I was watching tyre wear and gaps all through the race. Had some close racing with Matthew who was on a different strategy. Thought Wally was doing a one stopper and I was going to have to catch and pass him on track if I wanted the place, but then he made another stop.
