    These are flat out sprint races. Tyre wear, and fuel consumption will be on. But, will not be an issue.
    Race distance is approx 62 miles/100 kilometers.

    Season begins Friday, 24th of January.
    Races every other Friday.

    Lobbies will open at 22:45 UK time. (14:45 PST - 17:45 EST)
    Quali will begin at 23:00 UK time. (15:00 PST - 18:00 EST)
    15 minutes to qualify.
    Races will take no longer than 45 mins.

    He probably doesn't have anything juicy as you might think. Mazda has been involved in many open wheel racing series before, even if they were a spec series. I understand where he's coming from on the Mazda livery in the season ending race.

    @Bivittavus88, I'd like to join, but unless something in my work schedule changes before the end of the month, I wouldn't make it into the lobby in time. And that sucks because the races look like they will be hella fun.

    Added.

    Nothing super secret, sadly. Mazda are the current Indy Lights spec engine supplier.

    I'll no doubt be running another spec enduro at some point, mate. I'll make sure to get you involved in that.

    Happy to have you, mate.

    Looks like some fun combo’s. Unfortunatly I’m out as well, I spend two weeks down in Texas in Feb, then usually start back work in March or April when the weather starts acting up. Have fun!

    You mean this?

    Screenshot_2020-01-02-21-35-53-53.png

    It's not specified what model of each car. Except for the Mégane Trophy. There are several mx-5, several 458, several Audi TT's
    And the final, is that an open wheel vehicle?
