Sorry Dez,  I was spelling from the spoken word!  Jeez, am.i getting or have a reputation for drinking?  :) ( hehe, it's more I have a low tolerance, well that's my excuse.)
I have "misplaced"  all the old XGN race stats so also had to rely on my memory!

The closest thing we had was a Formula Renault 3.5 Season. The car was great and racing was difficult but enjoyable. The problem is that laptime differences were really big and we starting adding ballast to balance the field. But the differences were so huge that quite a few ended up with 150+Kg od ballast, in a car that probably weights 500Kg in total...

We need a Formula Ford series.  Open wheel, slower, drafting . . .
Not that I know if a decent mod exists.

We could try the lotus 25... much faster, but the rest would be there.

For a more strategic racing another league tried the following with the Lotus 98T by limiting the fuel and forcing drivers to choose between higher turbo boost and fuel economy. Quoted from the official forums.

Quote
As @Mogster said, 100% (or anything above 70%) is for qualifying only.

Furthermore, as @Trezoitao38 said, in race trim and if you do a proper long race, you shouldn't ever use more than 70% because of fuel consume problems. Refuelling was not permitted back then and so you had to keep your turbo pressure low. Many drivers would also coast and shortshift before braking points to lower the fuel consume even more. This whole thing has been nicely recreated in Eurogamer.it new Lotus 98T championship, where top drivers are "forced" to shortshift, use low pressure and coast before braking zones, to save fuel (the league is on full length GP races). You use higher turbo pressure only very very rarely if you need to overtake
