There's a '67 Bathurst that I had permission to port from rFactor to rF2..I could ask for extended permissions....  ;)

I liked the 67 track in rFactor, not sure on how much time you have, but it would be a good addition, espesh when we do "The Great Aussie Historic Series" :)

We need all the group n cars modded, now that would keep me rather happy...

Haven't modded in AC or even taken a look yet TBH. Will delve into things and see. ;)

How about these 2 car makes on spa for something different.. these were stock and quite matched.. I'd be interested to see how it goes with a group of us..

This is the sort of racing I really enjoy, cars that are on the surface a mismatch but equal in performance on the track.

I love the Cobra, would be happy to do another season in it. Much tougher to drive than the M3 though I assume.

I was going to suggest keeping the BTCC track list for another season and just changing the car selection. So we can start collating a shortlist of cars for next season.

We could also open up the track list. Perhaps people could nominate a track replacement? ie nominate a track to be replaced in the BTCC list and then nominate which new track should replace it.

the m3 has the cornering but the cobra has the top speed. both have equal acceleration from 0-100 but the cobra cant pull away too much from the m3. I'd like to test it on the server with more than just the 2 of us though to see how it goes.

I have had fun with other various car match ups.  Some require ballast added to one car to make the racing closer, but on average most are stock.. 1 cars strength is the other cars weakness and vice versa.

This is the RUF yellowbird vs the mercedes SLS. I ballast did have to be added to the RUF as it had a bit more power and top speed.

Another mix is the Lotus Exige S and the BMW 1M @ spa.. very close. (looks to be the standard 1M)

To add to the mix of the M3 vs cobra you can add the Lotus Evora S S2 to have 3 makes..I tested both road cars against the cobra and the evora seemed even closer to the cobra for speed.

There was another car we mixed with the Mazda MX-5 cup.. I think it was one of the abarths..
