    I'm very interested in this. I'm going to be frank with everyone, I don't have a ton of experience nor do I have some fancy steering wheel, but I am a clean racer. If you will still have me I would like to join black team

    No worries. We are a mixed bag of drivers and very interested in drivers of any level. We will have practice room at some point too.

    I've added you to the list :tup: I hope the time suggested works for you

    Time and date are perfect... I'm a school bus driver so anything on the weekends is always a plus :)

    @kelrick85 will we have weather change also?

    Did some practice with this car and this will be a fun race, the car handles like a dream and is fun to drive. I just wish they made a detailed interior.

    Added you to the list. Thanks for joining! Now there is only 5 spots left! I will still accept entrants as sort of waiting list, in case some drivers are unable to join last minute.

    I also wished it had interior, and yes, I agree it is an excellent car even without tuning.

    I hadn't planned on the weather change, as I'm inexperienced in bad weather condition, and it might just make a mess, especially with heavy damage, but of course this can be revised if there is enough interest. Please let me know asap if this should be put in place.

    @kelrick85 weather is totally up to you. If you do decide to add it please remember to add rain tires to the list of usable tires.

    When I think of VGT cars I think overpowered but BMW did a great job on keeping this car realistic and not just another jetsons 300 mph monster

    To be honest, as a BMW driver and fan i'd prefer the white car with ///M stripes :p

    Thanks for joining! I updated the list. I will also update the OP with most updated information later today (warmup lap, points, date and time etc). I'm glad this is coming together. Please keep the suggestions/feedbacks coming, I would love any inputs from you, especially from those with more experience with organized events like this.

    Well, this is supposed to be a revenge, right? Maybe he wants to go head to head with you guys :scared:

    So this is gonna be kind of a fight between the two teams? Just to get a picture, 'cause i don't understand why clarky is so upset @rclark83 :p :D

    Edit: I've read the description, in fact it is :)

    Well, it's just for fun. No hostility between the two teams (please!)

    Ideally it would be nice to choose between more than two colours (like the Aston Martin VGT), but alas we only have black and white. There is no option to insert driver numbers either, which is a shame

    Of course not, i'm a clean racer and glen, clarky and me have already raced a lot together :)
    Well i like the idea of having 2 teams, the most important colour is that white anyway.. :p

    Anyone have any times set? I reckon a sub 8:00 is possible with the right setup.

    EDIT: Just remembered that this is at Type V track so sub 8:00 should be easy.

    OP updated with the date, points, and (partial) formation lap information. The title is also updated with the date and slots left.

    Also, the club information is posted. I will make the club event, and the room will be set to club-only, so please sign yourself up to the club (it is a public club so don't need an invite from me). Thanks!


    My fastest was 8:02 in arcade mode (so no tire wear). I believe sub 8:00 is definitely doable for people with more experience. Let me know your time!

    If the VGT is slightly faster than the Z4, and the Type V is significantly shorter, I might be able to do a 7:50.xxx or faster. I can't wait to try this.

    It's OK man. @rclark83, @Glenalz81, and I have done hundreds of laps around the 'Ring. The times will come as you get more and more laps in.

    7:56.464 after 2 laps w/ a makeshift setup. I want to try for a 7:50.xxx if I get the setup right.
