    Hi I was curious if anybody has done the 24 hours of Le Mans in a car not equipped with headlights? I was racing my Toyota 7 in a seasonal event and thought maybe I could run it at Le Mans. I tried a shakedown one make race and managed a 3,24 lap time in the dark so I may try it.

    I have already won this race so this will be just for fun. My Toyota is fast enough to keep ahead in the daylight. I am an hour into the race now. Oh and I haven't messed with the visual settings. Also when I was practicing my Sony Bravia TV nicely goes darker when the picture doesn't have much light to use less electricity. Dang energy star rating, it is not anything you can adjust either. But its only dark for 7 hours right? That means I have 17 other daylight hours to make my lead!

    One of the best times I've had on GT5 was doing a full lap of Nurburgring in pitch black night, in an FGT, guided only by a friend of mine in his GT350. That kept my speed down a bit but otherwise I would have gotten nowhere lol

    I have completed it with no lights, driving an FGT car.

    There are a few lights around the track you can gauge off of, but needless to say you have to slow your pace a bit.

    Once I got a feel for it and got a rhythm established it wasn't too bad.

    As I recall, the approach to the section where you enter the pits was the most difficult.
