That sucks
Alright follow broad of director. Here's the options I see. Opinion 1: Completely cancel the Camaro ZL1 One-Makes both week 1 and 2. And put focus on promoting the Laguna Sega 200. Opinion 2: Push everything back and run the Camaro ZL1 events next Saturday and the following Saturday. The Laguna Sega 200 would be more moved to the first Saturday in December.

I'm thinking opinion 1. My argument being that there seems little to no interest in the Camaro ZL1 events. Which is sad I really thought it would be better received. The Camaro ZL1 is great car. Became one of my favorite road cars in GT7. I may or may not like it better than the C7 Corvette ZR1. So what do you think?

The Camaro is the best non race car in the game. I think you should cancel, if nobody showed up yesterday I doubt they will show up any other weeks.

The Camaro ZL1 is great but, thats a bold claim. Before this update I would said the Porsche 911 GT3 RS (991) '16 but, the new generation they added. The Porsche 911 GT3 RS (992) '22. This car has so much grip. It feels like driving a race car on sports tires and it's equipped a DRS wing.

And yeah that's what I was thinking too. I sad to cancel Camaro ZL1 Cup Weekends. I was really looking forward to them. I find I'll reluctantly make the announcement.

I'm sad to announce the official cancelation of the Camaro ZL1 Cup Weekends. Especially the NASCAR elements I really thought these events would do well but, yesterday's no show says otherwise.

So up next is Historic Group C Laguna Sega 200 currently scheduled for Sat Nov 18th. Another Gran Turismo endurance classic done in Laguna Sega fashion. As the race track commonly hosts historical events throughout year. This only open to any of the 5 Gr.1 cars that are 1992 or older. All of these cars most be bought through the Legend Dealer.

I do realize that these cars are not always available. Unfortunately I don't have a substitute idea in class. Since I think all of the more modern Gr.1 prototypes and VGTs would perform better at Laguna Sega. I may open another class for either class cars historic Gr.3 and or Gr.2.

I'm going to sit this one out, that will end up being 3 or more hours long, thats about an hour beyond what is already getting uncomfortable.

Sadness, I was looking forward to racing with you. The race length will very depending on what the top class ends up being. I did extend Qualifying to 20 minutes to give more time to the individual classes.

@fastone371 Alright Fall season is done. Next focus is on 2024 Endurance League. Of which you still get a track pick for. I've already picked mine. Which everyone is going hate me for. Anyways remember rules no dirt, no snow, and no Nurburgring Tourist. Be layout specific otherwise I may get creative, and weather change will be random unless you wish to choose your own weather for that race. Please note the Penalty of Godlike Knowledge will applied to you for that race as well if you make your own weather.

I would like to race the whole season with you guys, but I am already committed to racing Sunday nights. Racing Saturday and Sunday night every week might be too much for my family. I’ll let you know if and when I can join you and what my track pick is. I have a few in mind

Yeah I understand my family wouldn't want me doing so both Saturday and Sunday either. They're one of the reasons I don't host every week. Also for fun or not paperwork stinks. Even if it's virtual paperwork. My free Samsung notebook is filled with league paperwork and new ideas. Most of which will probably never make to the forum.

So races won't ever Saturday but, the session was extended by 3 races. There will 15 races between the start of January and the end of June. I tried to do bi-weekly. But the beginning season will be more 2 by 2 until mid-late season. The way breaks worked out for holidays, known family events, and big professional racing weekends. With a 3 week start of the season. The uncompleted race schedule below. I due have more races than this planned but, only the permanent residences of the 2 Hours of Daytona and 2 Hours of Le Mans dates are officially set.

Full Course I'm Assuming? Good choice I only have 2 races scheduled for the Asia Oceania region so far. I was even thinking of resenting my original vote to add another stop since the Americas and Europe have plenty.

For my prize track selection I'm going with Willow Springs Horse Thief Mile Forward. That's right Gr.1 and or Gr.3 on that hilly compact 1 mile road course. A course that is either too small or too hilly for anything. Honestly it races better as a mixed class. Yes I've already did some testing for the race.

And if you must know the difference between this pick and rest of the schedule. The rest of the schedule I tried to pick by what would be more popular and what would hopefully draw in more players. As for my track vote. I took a much more selfish pick. Man people are going to be mad at me.
