XGN Revives the GT Legends Series.

Some licence was taken finding a pic, not all cars displayed are available. (The tyre smoke is!)
Thank you to SkilletKid for suggesting the mod.

Format
We will use a mix of period, fast flowing and twisty tracks where possible.

Car Selection
911 RSR -74
Alfa Romeo GTA
BMW CSL
Capri RS 3500
Corvette 1967
Corvette 1969
Ferarri 350 GTB
Ford Escort 1600
Ford GT40
Pantera
Shelby Daytona
Shelby Cobra 289
Shelby Cobra 327 S/C

A 6 round season allowing us to enjoy this new very good mod and wind down to the end of the year with a roaring pre-Xmas Season.

The tracks will need Rooshooter acumen, to assist in quality/versions, the track specifics may change.

Two races per round: race 1 about 15 mins after qualifying, race 2 will be ~3 times race 1, with the starting order set by the order of race 1 fastest lap times. Race 2 will have  the "Restrictor" set dependant on race 1 positions.

Balancing the field
As above, setting the restrictor from the race 1 warm-up will allow the car/driver capabilities to be tightly aligned.

Schedule  Current track listings are not finalised, the current listing is lacking "nimble cars" advantages...

R1: Nov 09, Aosta Semi Oval Sports Chicane; 7 laps + 22 laps TBC
R2: Nov 16, Mosport Download, 7 laps + 20 laps
R3: Nov 23, Riverside Short Download, 6 laps + 18 laps
R4: Nov 30, Ahvenisto Download,  TBA
R5: Dec 7, Mont - Tremblant Download, 7 laps + 20 laps
R6: Dec 14, Silverstone 1967, 7 laps + 20 laps


Points
As per the "Phil.8 system".

Track testing and car familiarisation TBA. 

Just to whet your appetite...

That sounds enticing enough to pick the wheel up again :)

what a pity there isn't a Mini to burn across the line. :) It would be good to see you on the track again.

I agree
What if UFOs are just us from the future coming back in time to sight see?
Or might be to snatch women?

Looks like some Thursday racing coming up on my calendar.. ;)

Be nice if the couple of bugs in the mod could be resolved though  ;)

Probably only something simple to fix. but beyond my knowledge base  :)
NEVER TOO OLD TO RACE ... being competitive can be a PROBLEM though.

Great to see you DaveO, with the Tuesday night runs realising how much fun this era car is, and the early notice of these upcoming events, we should have a larger field.

List any and all bugs you find in any car and I'll see what I can do.

Well, bugger me. You know I noticed the mirrors were 3.3mm out of alignment but didn't notice they were reversed :o :o :o

Thanks GZero   1.  ACL Corvette 1969...  Brakes not working. Did some more testing today and it would seem brakes work up to 20 kph after that nothing.

                         2.  ACL Detomaso Pantera...  Rear vision mirror not working. (blacked out)

                         3. ACL  Ford Capri RS 3100...  Shadowy lines appearing on windscreen on some direction changes while driving. Tried different time and weather settings
                                                                         and with and without post proc filter on, but still the same. In VR this isn't really a game breaker though, more a distraction.

                                 Cheers Dave O.

    Problem 1. Fixed  ;D :) ;D   in garage ABS on by default turned it off and all good.

ACL Corvette 1969 brakes are working at all speeds.  DaveO, maybe you panicked aver 20 and hit the wrong pedal :)

I don't think cars burn as nicely in AC as they used to in GTL :D
