    Used the big gun, FXX, here. Need to turn some sub-1:40 laps, the Huayra is a 9:08 rabbit, the F1 a little slower. Fun seasonal, a bit of a change.

    Took the Nardo, easy win!

    Did overtake the pagani Huayra at the begining of the third lap.
    Last time I saw the Huayra it had a brake failure!

    I used my ZZII here, but had so much fun, I started tweaking it for long drifts instead of good times. This is the most "fun" I've had in a seasonal in a long time.

    Like @MoparGTS, I used the Cadillac Cien for this seasonal, maxed out with oil change at 640 pp. Pretty strong contender and overtook the Huayra in the last lap quite easily.

    The R246 is fun. The few long straights mean it involves quite a few trail braking and these turns are great for overtaking as well! The braking also helps in turning the car, unless you like to use the wall to do that rather! :lol:

    A tune for those interested.

    I haven't driven that car much, is it tuneable? If so, which tune did you choose?

    The suspension (except for camber) is fully tunable, as are the transmission and drivetrain (except for torque split).
    Otherwise, only the PL and ballast can be adjusted.
    Basically, this visionary vehicle is indistinguishable from perfect and needs no tuning. All it needs is competition, a place somewhere in the game to race. This seasonal is as close as it gets. Turn off all driving aids, driving line, etc. Not even slightly needed to totally dominate the opposition.

    Probably the most unfair car in the game.

    If you had used a USB for backing up your GT6 game save before your PS3 had died, then you would not have lost everything like your cars and many months of work goes down the drain.

    Found this one really difficult in the Lamborghini Murcielago S-V at 605PP. Was on stock suspension and diff settings. Came a measly 6th place after some VERY impressive drifts and crawled back to the pits after the race without a single straight panel on the car!! A particularly scary moment was smacking the wall on through the little kink in the main straight, spinning across to the opposing wall, and spinning out, having to recover and hold position. Nothing realistic about that manoeuver, just survival instincts!

    So I gave the car a few tweaks: suspension, diff, engine tune level 3, and intake. I returned and took the event with a bit more caution, but due to a stupid Viper reversing into me as I rounded Turn 1 on lap 3, I missed out on 1st place by 7 seconds, finishing in 3rd.

    I gave it a third attempt, this time increasing the top speed setting on the gearbox out to 350km/h so I didn't top out on the home straight. A hard-fought battle into the final straight saw me come away with a 0:00:111 winning margin.

    I really did not enjoy the handling on this beast, but a few more rounds and I might get used to it. The S-V feels like such a tank through the bendy stuff. It has (in my tune in any case) a strong tendency to understeer under power, and requires a soft touch on the accelerator to get through most corners without brushing - or wholeheartedly connecting with - a wall or another vehicle. It's a stunning thing to look at, but not the most enjoyable to drive.

    You're not kidding, did a few minor tweaks and wow, this thing is unreal. I had some issues with the field last night, couldn't do better than a 7:50, but restarting fresh today it didn't take long to run a good time. Thanks again for the tune :). I wonder what the aliens can do with this thing!

    Took the car for a lap, I wasn't on the "attack mode". Got first at the end of the second lap!!!
    Your lap time is very impressive, I won't be able to beat it. My hat to you!
