Nominate some cars
« on: May 11, 2017, 10:23:39 PM »
Nominate some cars for Thursday season 9

I would prefer a single make season or would consider a season with a main car and a handicap car for top 3 or 5 or something, the handicap car could even be like 10 seconds a lap or more slower, they would still have a race among them selves and make lapping them interesting for everyone else and I think would even out by end of season time most peeps had to have a go in the slow car




I wouldn't mind and in no particular order,  back to cobra season , caterham for Rob, still owe him a season in that as he suggested it and couldn't do the season last time, skippy or mazda mx5 or even one of the arbarths,  wonder if anyone them is similar to mazda, will try is a fun run and see sometime :)

Of course the Caterham is a kit car and can come with any engine you desire.

There is at least three formula easter mods out there.

The closest car to the MX5 is the Toyota GT86, with the Abarth 500 EsseEsse Step1 a tad slower again.

Hey Phil, thanks for the thought, but my PC problems seem to be going a bit deeper than I originally thought. I think that it is just not up to the rigors of modern gaming. I can't guarantee being able to make all Thursday nights so best not pick a season for me. Appreciate the thought though.

Cheers mate

We are due for a Cobra season. It is the 'Cobra Cup' after all!!

Having said that there are a couple of other Kunos cars that suit spirit of Thursdays - Alfa GTA, Lambo Muira - plus a couple of modern cars that don't get much running but produce very good racing - BMW M235i and Alfa 4C.

After driving the skippy the other night I think it would make a good Thursday car, or always happy to do another Cobra season! I may have been a flappy paddle only driver back when I last did a Cobra season so would be good to do another season and drive it properly!

If not a season, can I request for these to be used for a fun run at some point? (doesn't have to be before the next season, whenever!)

With so many people wanting to try different cars, I was thinking a" Season of Season Ideas" might be in order. It will add some structure to the choices and give the people who nominated the cars a chance to select a track as well. So far I think we have:

Skip Barber by GoD
Dallara
Asphalt 55
Lotus 49 by GoD
Cobra/Daytona 289 by GoD
Ferrari312/LolaT70/McLarenM1b  ACLegends and Prototypes (my choice) at Highlands Intermediate track.
If I have missed any cars please say so.
All feedback welcome.
