    Hey man I would like to join, but you have to tell me the times. You have to do that, also because no one else will join if you don't.

    I can't make it to the first race because I have another championship. The others are fine.

    Grid is now full. Thank you gentlemen!

    If you'd still like to take part we can add your name but it will be a standby entry. I know there'll be a free place for the first race, after that I'm not sure.

    Steve, just a thought. It is now possible to see what tyres people use after pit stops in the replays of the FIA races. If that is also the case in lobby replays, that might open up the possibility of the use of quicker tyre wear along with a change tyre type regulation, to bring in a bit of variation to the longest race... In case you fancied that...

    Cheers, Zo.

    Glad to see more of these series. The '16 911 GT3 RS, tuned makes a perfect Cup Car. Having alot of good racing in my series with it. Good luck with yours:cheers:

    I did think about it, but with the preconceptions that come with this car I thought I'd keep it on sticky tyres. Being a fairly high powered road car with no adjustable downforce I thought it would make for closer racing. Fingers crossed anyway.:nervous:

    It's also partly why we'll be running x3 fuel. You don't need to stop if you can make it last for the race, but you'll be slower on track. We've had a couple of close ones like that with the leader ( who didn't stop ) winning by less than a second. I know fuel saving is still not quite sorted yet and is still open to abuse but we have a decent bunch of guys that prefer the spirit of the race.


    Cheers fella, thanks for the encouragement. Have a look in if the time difference works for you.:cheers:

    Hello Drivers,
    With permission of your series organizer, Fido996, I wanted to invite you to take a look and possibly join us for a Single Race Special Event next Friday, November 1st at 9pm est for our Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Endurance Race at LeMans. This is a side race from our regularly scheduled season, and is open for anyone to race with us and try it out. I know it is late for many of you on that side of the world, but figured there might be a night owl or two in the group. The link is shown below for details.
    SNAIL- Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge, Special Event at LeMans: All are welcome to sign up, See Details Here.

    Hope this might interest some of you.:cheers:

    @llNovall I would like to join the race this Friday night if there is still room. I'll reply to the thread as well. Time for GBRC to branch out! :gtpflag:

    Also. I remembered Saturday night I will be at a party and I will most likely be not in shape to race on Sunday..........I'm a wildcard anyways lol but this is a FYI if I'm not online.

    @Fido996
    If you have room on the roster, I will be available to fill in as a Wildcard/Reserve, if needed to fill the grid this upcoming Sunday at Suzuka. Let me know.

    Hi Nova, I think RappyThePro is absent for the first event so you're more than welcome to join us Sunday.

    As the grid is almost full could we all be in the lobby no later than 19.50 please, just so I can get the numbers sorted.

    Cheers gents :cheers:

    I'm not sure, but I should be free. How much do races last? I have another championship at 9 p.m. UK.

    You’ll probably miss the last race.

    If you have someone who would like to take my spot, I will relinquish it, I am not particularly good at this game. I still race with the DS4!

    A couple of our regulars race using the DS4, they may be able to help you get the best out of it. You're most welcome to join us, regardless of ability. It's a helpful bunch here.:cheers::tup:

    Four hours to go before we start and we have 15 firm and 1 wildcard. Please just bear in mind that we're running heavy damage so contact could result in a slower car but not just for you. I'm sure all will be well come the races, so I'll see you all later for 3 competitive and enjoyable races.:cheers:
