    I beat this race with my 458 with the power limiter,triple plate clutch, and 177 kg at the front. My fastest lap was 2:14.8. It was easy when I start to drive around the corners good.

    1.14.8 at Ascari? Don't tell me now that Ferrari secretly released their version of an X1 car. :grumpy:

    You got that right... Not a bad event, but not much room for repeatability aside from credit grinding. Had fun throwing the 599 around the curves though.

    Wubberbandy twasing wabbit.

    I have all the Ferraris and have hardly raced them, so I might end doing this event a bunch by trying out each.

    So far, I've run this in the F430 with a few alterations and Praiano's GTO '84.

    Didn't realise there were penalties in this until the second race. Also, I received a couple of hefty rear-endings from the Enzo in the first race in the F430.

    I used a Scuderia and won by 26 seconds.

    I think it's a little bit OP.

    I'm starting to like the GTO '84. I made a few little additions to Praiano's tune and it can be kind of quick.

    did it in 599 easily - actually SPUN OUT totally in the 4th lap because I lost my attention for a sec, and then took over the Enzo quite easily in the 5th lap..

    Love Ferraris! :) Only finnished second twice so far though. The F40 and the enemy 599 seem overly agressive. I would have won the second race had it not been for a cut through penalty. Wich they hadn't hit me with all race till i was in the lead. Hmph. The penalties don't seem consistent. I've really slammed some cars and didn't get caught. Go figure.

    Doable with a stock 250 GT. Just put SS tires on it. No oil change. No aids at all.
    I strongly recommend it. Lots of fun. The only hard thing is to keep the Enzo behind you in the straights. It finished third because the AI messed up in one of the last corners.

    This picture is from my first attempt. Full of little mistakes and with one or two dirty overtakes.

    PS1: If someone is interested I could upload a low quality video.
    PS2: Keep pushing @Bluesman81977 ;)

    Cheers!

    I also used my 250 GT. Tuned at 530 PP. Lots of fun indeed.

    This will be a good opportunity for me to learn Ascari. It seems difficult to pass on but there was also a time when i couldn't stand the Ring. Now i love it. :)

    Ahhh... This event sounds interesting, making us choose from a Ferrari is kind of cool. Ascari is a great track too. I used to hate it, when I first bought GT6. I think it was just too difficult for me to drive while maintaining a quick pace. I can't wait to try this event.

    I used the Ferrari F430 '06 with tuning from @shaunm80
    You may not like it, but i do, brakes very good, and if you start turning too early, the car slides into place
    and i could dive into the corner.

    That's all I managed too. Granted, I never even attempted that license test once I got my bronze. I'd like to hope that I could do much better now - that was quite a while ago and I know I've improved a bit. Still, with that fat pig of a car and those tight corners...man, that's a heck of a license test. I wonder how many people haven't been able to pass to S Class all because of that one license test. There has to be some.

    I know. Not a fan of that Bugatti at all! Looking forward to this event for the next two weeks though.

    Once you get good at this event the Bugatti S5 test will be a lot of fun. It'll be easier but still make you go :crazy:

    On my first attempt, I tried very very hard. Resulting in a lot of errors, and ended up second in the all-red field. So I realized this was the easiest Expert race I have tried, and won the Enzo by roughly two seconds.

    I used a "'87" F40 in both races, so 489 bhp & 1112 kg, and sports soft.

    This was in the second race, dipped a tyre outside:

    I am going to try all the Ferraris, so far the 458 not to bad but the Enzo '02 does handle well. I just won beating the Enzo '02 by 1 second using @praiano63 tune here https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/thre...0pp-sport-tires.291084/page-117#post-10063640 :tup:.

    Found this one quite easy with the 458, almost to the point of losing concentration towards the end of laps 4 and 5. Fun, but just seemed quite long. Maybe a 3 lap race would do? Used the same car de-tuned for the stage 5 intermediate race. Wow, now that was fun. Could really push the car through corners hard which I would normally have to tip-toe round. Great fun. Now to go through my whole Ferrari collection, looking forward to it.
