    Thank you. Added to the list. Darn Lexus LFA nudged me on the very last turn of the last lap on the expert race causing me to go wide. 2nd place. What was the AI thinking?!

    I notice that to in the expert race, I think the Lexus LFA and I think the other one is a Nissan are over 500PP for that race. and what do you think ?.

    I suspect they haven't been as de-tuned as the PP rating suggests. They have a lot more speed on the long straights than the Series One which isn't exactly a slouch. Out of the corners, the series one has much better grip and traction than the AI but they forget which is the brake pedal when you are in 1st place.

    Expert Race Winner, very easy. The Scuderia nudged me in lap 3.

    What about that spleen from PD for too weak tyres anyway?

    Yes, the Kamikaze are back , a Ferrari F430 has made a divebomb at the last round at Spa but i won with the Subaru Impreza WRX Sti '07 . For the beginner event i used the Abarth 500 '09 and the Midfield event i have won with the BMW M3 '07 :)

    New seasonal races. Same cars. I love the 500pp bracket, but I feel like I've tried every car that I want to try. Not a complaint about the selection of tunes mind you, more frustration with the lack of diversity in the seasonal races.

    Beginner's Level Non-Racing Car Challenge (400PP SH)
    Mini Cooper '02 (350PP CS)

    I tried it just like that 350PP with CS tires. I got second my first two races, even though I shaved over 10 seconds off my total time I lost by about one second each time. If I'd kept at it I could've gotten first with the car as is, but I decided to throw some SH tires on it and give it a whirl... Easy first. Just watch out when you take first place, as shaunm80 put it, "[the AI] forget which is the brake pedal when you are in 1st place".

    Intermediate Level Non-Racing Car Challenge (500PP SH)
    Chevrolet Camaro SS '10 (500PP SS)

    I liked this car in the last 500PP event and not much has changed. I'm not too familiar with the track, but still an easy win. This is another of those grab any 500pp car you like and make some credits.

    Expert Level Non-Racing Car Challenge (500PP CS)
    Shelby Series One Super Charged '03 (500PP SH)
    This one has already been recommended and for good reason. I definitely don't want to drive that stupid Suzuki anymore. I had a bit of a nail biter finish, that Scuderia is faster than Walt Flanagan's dog.

    I had a go with it,gold is easy reachable but the driving skills are making the difference.
    Best clean lap i could do with it is 8'17"997 .
    I can go faster but when i do i'm crashing somewhere :(.
    Somebody with better driving skills can get around 8'05"... imo. with that car.
    It was a fun ride anyway.

    so shaun,you can add the Lexus VGT to the gold list for the 630PP TT.

    I'm hating that track,but i'm getting to know it right now.
    Mine favorite track is (no surprise i guess) Spa.
    I also like Rome and Apricot Hill.

    I've spended my time today to improve myself at Nunrburgring (succeeded after couple hours) and did the beginner level with some cars and the intermediate level also.
    Still need to complete that one,think i'm gonna try this one for sure.
    Alfa Romeo 8C Competizone '08
    Don't know if it will be a good choice,i'll experience that when i'm racing.
    Already selected it for the next time i'm playing GT6.

    Are these tunes from my garage or some of your own creations?
    How did this car do when you tested it out? Was is good enough for the win?
    All added to the list. Thanks :)

    The Subaru Impreza works well with comfort tyres and have more grip as some supersport cars

    Yes !!!!!!!!
    And also gold winner for the Midfield seasonal.
    Fun ride for sure but comfort tyres s****.Drifted a lot of times in the corners,but never lost control.
    I would have preferred this as a 3 lap race.
    My best lap was 2'41"061 if i remember it well.
    Gap for the win was just over a 1 second.Lexus took the silver.

    Had a Lexus LFA and a Nissan GT-R Black edition as rabbits.
    But it keeps irritating me that when you're chasing them you easely catch up.But when you've passed them (at lap 3),they adapt to your pace,hard to create a comfy gap :mad:.
    Also i've received a ramming penalty for a slight touch on the rear,when you hit your opponents in the side you don't receive one.:rolleyes:

    A couple more for Expert Level Non-Racing Car Challenge (500PP CS):

    Ford RS200 '84 (500PP SH)
    This thing MOVES. I got my fastest lap time so far in this thing. I have it painted fluorescent green with fluorescent orange wheels, it's my little Frogger.

    McLaren MP4-12C '10 (550PP SH) reduced to 500pp
    The mighty McLaren, master of all races 500-600pp. I did some minor fiddling with the suspension and diff that I'm not sure was entirely necessary. Due to the power limiter needing to be set so low it's a bit lacking in top speed, but it makes up for it with everything else.

    A very cool prototype car that has a lot of mechanical grip. A car that didn't need much tuning to make it easy to drive at the limit and go up against much newer cars.

    Hi Shaunm80
    If I can afford you made a error in your suspension probably an error button in your Nissan Skyline 105/9.30??
    Thanks again shaunm80 :cheers:

    Another old car that is pretty good at going toe-to-toe with newer models. This thing may surprise you with its grip and agility, even at the limit. It does have a limit though so don't be surprised if this car bites back at some point.
