I actually think the MX5's could be good fun.

I never vote for the GT cars as that's all everyone seems to drive on the pub servers these days.

Funny I hardly ever drove the gt cars so wouldnt mind them for a change.

Maybe it's true in general, and that's why everybody says this on every forum. But as far as our community goes, it seems just a cliché to me: I have not raced a GT car since our GT season...

I never race on pub servers!  But that's why we all get a vote.

Has anyone tried changing their vote,  or adding to their vote? I'm not sure how easy it is. I intend this to be a "living poll", with options added over time and new votes.

Very tempted to vote for the open wheeler F138 but suspect we have some drivers still recovering from the previous season  ;D

I even put up a gt server at times but hardly anyone drives them, I did my first 2 laps in the 488 gt3 yesterday which killed the dodo. Got it breathing again this morning but tests using the optus 4g connection were surprisingly ok and not much worse then the adsl2+ connection.

The engine sound of the Maserati GranTurismo MC GT4 sure is awesome  ;D

With no ABS or TC it's also a good test

The Masserati is a good car I ran some laps with the ROOZ guys in that at Albert park. The track version was horrible lol but the car were fun and more of a challenge then a regular full blown aids gentlemen drivers special.

We have raced 3 GT seasons already... Maybe I just notice them more because to me they seem pretty boring to drive, but there are other car types I feel like we haven't touched yet.

No disagreement about that. I was only thinking about the fact that I often here "all public servers are on GT3" and noticing "we" actually do not race them very often. But I agree there are other options that would feel... fresher for our league.

I dont really care what we drive, in terms of actual enjoyment driving I think the lotus 72D was the best for me. Sadly this was also the lowest turn out by the end of the season as it seems many dont like the more challenging cars. The f138 season would be great too in terms of driving, for racing I dont know but it would be interesting if nothing else.

Close racing in the slower cars like this season or some single spec race cars is always fun, in the end the poll is good to see what the majority want to race and get an idea of what sort of cars will get a good turnout. I see some leagues in Eurpope drive nothing but GT3 and it seems also many people that have AC are like this. To me changing things up and racing anything is good, there is so much good content around and more to come sticking to one basic fairly boring to drive class seems like a waste.

Still the odd GT season is never a bad thing, but as Guybrush said there is so much we havent really raced that probably best not to go too close to the stuff we have already raced. Having said that cars like the masserati are actually quite fun to drive and even gt cars if you turn off the aids.

Bear in mind that we have lots of members here, who all like a different range of things. I'll always mix it up, neither avoiding anything completely nor having too much of any one thing. Something for everyone!

 Both the new Ferrari 488 GTB and  Praga R1 would be good. The Ferrari is tricky while the Praga would give good close racing  ;D
