    I'm in, but there's no way I'll be able to make all the races. I'll make the ones I can, sort of a 'guest driver' but I doubt I'll be able to contend for any points finish as I'll probably miss half the races.

    Either way, should be fun! I'll probably run the BMW but I'll want to drive them all first to do some testing.

    I guess you could count me in, but there's no way I'd be able to make the US time slot races, I'd just have to stick to the Euro time slot.

    As for cars I just want to drive something FWD, so that narrows it down to 4. I'm not much of a fan of Audi so that's down to 3. And between the Honda, Mercedes and Toyota I will decide using the proven method of which car I can find the nicest livery for :lol:.

    Just thought I'd ask now, would people like this to stay as a touring car series or switch to a NASCAR series?

    Not at this stage, no.

    I'm running in a couple of series elsewhere so I'll wait until FM7 before I reconsider this series.
