Ideas:

For a mid-season fun run, or in-between seasons, have a "random combo night" where 7:30 on the night of the race Wally randomly selects a car and track from the AC content and we all go in "blind" and have to learn the track and car in an hour, qual and race.  It would reduce the impact of some people having the opportunity of practicing for hours vs others with a lot of activities which means they can't prac before hand.
I have a LAN at my house every few months with a bunch of guys and at the last one we started a championship based on this premise - we randomly pick a car and track just before each race, do 10 minute quali and 7 lap race regardless of track length (but we include a fair few mod tracks in our list, so this could be anything from a tiny little club track to something like Isle of Man. Works out pretty fun and a fairly even way of doing things :)
I am planning something like this for a fun run on Sep 27, after the Jap Pack season ends. I'll write up more closer to the time.

That 488 GTB is a hell of a lot of fun.  Make sure to turn TC off.

In general, I'd like to stick to original AC cars, for "genuine" physics. There are plenty to choose from!

I don't know which number-letters-combination it is, but that racing 911-shaped thingy from the 70s is a joy to drive and seems good for close racing, albeit a tad slow perhaps. Maybe we should consider it for a between season fun night or stuff like that.

Porsche 917/30 is a Can-Am car Wally. ;)
I just wish we had a McLaren M8B to go with it.

Yet to take one for a spin but maybe one of the Porsche cars in the new DLC...

Gotcha - I didn't recognise can-am! I haven't tried all the Porsche yet either. The 911 RSR might make good racing. The Carrera and 918 are fun to fang around in with the TC off, but not necessarily for racing.
