I have not done any testing yet and the track might be too long and difficult, I might change it to the junior course or something,  what's peoples thoughts on the track ?

It depends. :-\
I like it but I haven't done any laps with another car.
Alone the track is too long and, quite frankly, boring having about 5km of full throttle.
BUT it was renowned for its slip-streaming battles, so if that translates to AC it would be easier for slower guys to keep up (and even pass).
So, for mine, it depends on the slip-streaming effect.

If you are going to change tracks, I would prefer the GP over the Jnr.
No chicanes so it's a pretty quick lap.

@Phil.8 and @Wally I just linked from the server url to xgn.com.au and noticed that the biggest posts on the XGN home page date back to 2017. I think it is because the home page is listing the News forum section in the centre part of the web page. It may be a good idea to post a topic in the News section that describes XGN Thursdays open server sessions we are currently running?

This is not a good "recruitment" combo.

Incorporating Gratulin's insight with G0D's and my agreeance, I'd say it's a vote for the GP track.
Unless Gratulin meant an entirely different combo.

I was just concerned that visitors might struggle with the car and high speed bowl. Slower, easier cars might be better?

I am afraid everyone will have to humour me this week with this car because I have wanted to run it since it was release forever ago :)

With the track I am happy to change to whatever,  how about Silverstone 67 ?  or suggest me a Kunos Track,  I am happy with normal Monza ? anything ? Highlands short ? Nurburg sprint or sprint GT ? one of the short vallelunga ? or magione ?

I was thinking '66 Monza still just the GP version, rather than full course.
Less corners than Silverstone. 8)
