Not sure I can make this one so I’ll come back a bit nearer if there is space left.

Obviously the Gr4 fastest lap won’t show up in game so you’ll have to go looking for it afterward (unless I’m missing a trick :) ). Looks good though 👍, 77 laps of brands is gonna be tough!!!

Aye, that might be tricky to find. Fairly sure it'll show in the post race lap chart, though. I need to check.

What‘s the approximate race duration?

Quick bit of mental maths (possibly unreliable) about 1hr 45.

Sweet Jesus, I should have looked at the track/length first! :eek: This is gonna be painful. :lol:

In my defence, you said you were getting more comfortable with longer races, and didn't object when I hinted at even longer ones :lol:

Edit: I think am gonna go with Gr.4 for Jaguar as well, sorry for the switcheroo. So, updated:
GTP - R_Goldstreiff
psn - robbybass
car - Jaguar Gr.4
# - tbd

Done :)

GTP name - Michelin Man
PSN name - TheSweeney_ (formerly Michelin_man959)*
Car - Aston Martin (Gr.3)
Race number - #11

*Edit: Recently changed my PSN ID, opted to keep the original alongside the new ID for 30days
