    Did anyone save the replays from the main races this evening? I ran out of space, so I couldn't save them. :(

    Ha ha. Pigems, the 3 lap champ. :tup:

    I guess nobody else saw what happened at the end, except for me and @GOTMAXPOWER. I didn't exactly outrun Max.
    I had a feeling at the time that he let me win. Now, after watching the replay from his perspective, yup he did.

    Perhaps he had pity for me, since I screwed the pooch on the final turn. :O :lol:

    enjoyed it last night / this morning. Always a good giggle and some great racing .. had to call it a night at nearly 4am as I was picking my son up from University in Manchester (15 miles away) at 10:30am.
    When i got in bed, i had to the old 'yeh, i came to bed about 1am but i've just been back downstairs for a drink' routine :cheers::lol:

    A few hours earlier would be great.
    If where running so many races though, why not do two endurance races with pit stops?
    I suggest
    Goodwood, Alsace or Suzuka with Karts.
    Dragon Trail or Fuji with an American muscle car.
    Willow Springs with the F1 Merc.

    A re-run of Interlagos with the NSX too :tup::cheers:

    Hello! I would love to join these kinds of relaxed, clean racing open lobbies. Reminds me too much of the good GT5 / 6 days. :cheers:

    My PSN ID is Cabernet_GT. Hopefully I can join in on the fun, should be a good time.

    If I may request a few bonus events for @Pigems to take into consideration, here they are:
    (Track - Time - Laps / Car Class - BoP On or Off - Tuning Allowed or Prohibited - Tyre Compound [Minimum - Maximum] / Tyre Wear - Fuel Consumption)
    1. Sardegna Road Track A (Morning), 5 laps. N500, BoP On, Tuning Allowed, Sports Hard (Minimum Compound) / Sports Medium (Maximum Compound).
    2. Tokyo Expressway Central Inner Loop (Noon, Rain), 5 laps. Gr.X One Make, BMW i3 Only, BoP Off, Tuning Prohibited, Sports Hard.
    3. Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya (Noon), 20 laps. Gr.X One Make, Honda-Toyota Super Formula 2019, BoP Off, Tuning Allowed, Racing Hard (Minimum Compound) / Racing Soft (Maximum Compound), Tyre Wear x10, Fuel Consumption x8.
    Cheers! :cheers:

    *PS: if by allowing tuning, you can power up and reduce weight on the Super Formula, then tuning may be set to prohibited to keep it fair. Cheers. ;)

    Hey man! You’re more than welcome to join us any time, just shoot mea FR on PSN(CnF_Pigems) so you can see/join the rooms when they open. :)

    We usually don’t get into tuning for the Bonus Races, with only a day’s notice it wouldn’t leave anyone much time for tuning cars and practice, buts it’s something we could consider if the group likes the idea though. :)

    I'm also anti-tuning. Mainly because there's no tuning in sport mode and that's what most of us are here to do. Also because I don't have the time to tune and would just rather race right away on an even playing field.

    Sweet, mate. I've sent you the friend request since I'm online for a while, finishing Circuit Experience for those sweet free cars. :lol:

    On the tuning side, since you announce the bonus races shortly before the lobby, then you may take it off, especially for the SF19. N500 is another story though. I wanted to allow tuning to possibly make more cars competitive against the likes of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS or the Ferrari F50, but BoP should be fine. :D

    No worries there man, our Bonus Races are usually always One Makes, that way it’s all about the driver and it removes the car from the equation all together. :)

    Then I guess that narrows it down to two requests; the i3 one-make and the SF19 one-make. :cheers:

    I’m sure we can work those on at some point for sure. :)

    I’ve thought about it, but my mic works sporadically at best and I have trouble concentrating on racing with people talking. But we can definitely try it, I’ll just mute the voices during races lol.

    I won't be able to make it tonight because of all the racing on (I need the PlayStation for streaming). Good luck and have fun!

    That was a good last race at BB.

    I just bought the Super Bee, Challenger and 2000GT, to test tune with the Camaro, 'Vette, GT350 and FuguZ. Kind of a Trans Am type set up.

    Years '65-'73(FuguZ is based on a 1973 model)

    450-452hp for the Super Bee, R/T, C3, Z28, G.T.350 and GTB4
    1400kg-1465kg(R/T can't dip below 1465)

    Transmissions all set to 317km/h in 4th gear.
    GTB4 stock transmission tops at 317km/h in 5th

    Suspensions are set up to similar spec

    2000GT 295hp/1120kg
    FuguZ 294hp/1122kg

    Transmissions Auto set 290km/h

    Wish I could assign these cars to AI.

    All cars on Racing Mediums
