    Hurrah!!

    One question though: Is there anything going to be done about the massive speed advantage the TS040 and the R18 have? As it stands now, they basically just leave everything else behind on corner exit.

    I honestly didn't know they did because the RWD and Marek are hybrid power too. I don't even have the Toyota or the Aston.

    I did some online races and everytime I was against those two (Either with the Audi or Toyota), I blew them away at the start. I'll do some testing just to confirm it.

    Also (didn't even notice this at first), only the Merek is Hybrid, The RWD is just LMP1. So, there may (Or may not) be a chance we could have a case of LMP1-H and LMP1-??(Petrol I guess?)

    Edit: Nevermind, RWD is a Hybrid. Just got thrown off by the liveries as some of them have the HY sticker and some don't (Which is just very odd).

    If that is the case, then I would simply leave Toyota out and revert the Audi back to the TDI.

    That's perfect for me. Can I pencil myself in for the Z4 GT3 please?

    I know a couple of others who might be interested also.

    Either the LMP1 #80 (RWD I am quite sure) or Mercedes GT3 #80

    Did some testing late last night around Silverstone and It looks like you won't need to. At least in my hands, both the RWD and the Marek were actually competitive enough to keep up, even faster by a little bit. I guess I just raced people who just weren't used to handling a car with a Hybrid control system like that (which now that I think about it, was kinda to my advantage thanks to GT6 and the Toyota TS030 Hybrid.). I am abit curious about the Aston though since its the only Non-Hybrid in the field.

    Car number on the Z4?
    Might want to double look. The Mercedes involved is the AMG GT3, Free Car #10.

    A bit of an update. Added a test day to July 31st at Hockenheim. It isn't mandatory by any means, but it would be a great way to measure the field up before we get to Silverstone.

    I just know how to not make the car spin and what I need to do to keep the engine from overheating and blowing.

    You know what, can you guys specify if you have the following car packs:

    Japanese Car Pack
    Audi Ruapana Expansion
    Aston Martin Track Expansion
    US Car Pack

    Think it'd be best to mention this series kinda requires these if you're gonna pick certain cars (Corvette, DBR1-2, E-Tron Quattro, etc)
