6am Monday morning.... :ouch:
An hour later start turns into an hour earlier over there? Australia really is upside down.

Count me in :cheers: Not sure which car yet, will have a search through the liveries.
I've got some you can use. ;)

I'll make time, will need to set a reminder somewhere.
PSN is SvennoJ, car number 74, Mazda 787B for the sound!
Which movie will you be repping this race?

You put up a good fight last time, I'll expect nothing less this time around.

I could easily have messed up the time zone conversion on one of my posts. Regardless, Sunday night UK or American works out to too early or at work Monday for me, phreelickz, 05XR8 and Invisigoth. Swings and roundabouts, DRWF works out to be middle of the day / afternoon on Saturday for me while UK / EU have to burn the midnight oil to race that.

Hey Drex, nice, Monza =) Count me in as well, although it is only 1 day after the Suzuka GT500 event - I hope I have enough time to train and also that I won't wear out my bottoms from doing all these endurance races, lol ;)

I have a question regarding the BOP, are we gonna be using the Gr. 1 GT Sport Bop again with no tuning?

My entry:
GTPLanet: R_Goldstreiff
PSN: robbybass
Race Number: 12
Car: Nissan R92CP
I will be using ZHOM-1's Rondeau M382 livery this time (link):

Prepare to be punted :mad:

Nah let's make some musical harmonies with the 787s running side by side :cheers:

Previous running in daily races at Monza has me well adjusted to the potential punts :mischievous:.

Joking aside, hopefully those 4-rotors can be singing in harmony 👍.

You put up a good fight last time, I'll expect nothing less this time around.

I wouldn't get your hopes up too much, who knows if I'm on the pace or not finding new ways to mess up my own race :lol:.

@Drex124 just to clarify are we using the version of Monza with or without the first chicane. Also put me in the Jaguar with #35

Let's see, Mononoke is on it, Howl's moving castle, Castle in the sky and Spirited away :)

When I looked it up on a time converter 4pm EST was 6am AEST the next morning. I might give it a go with the Porsche. Svenno doesn't seem to be giving the Porsche any love any more.

It's time for the 787B to sing, although it will probably sing itself out of fuel while the Porsche keeps on humming.

It will be interesting with the R92CP fastest on the straight, then 962C, while 787B has better brakes for the chicanes and is a bit more nimble in the corners.

...hey hey, I'd like to make a car change. Had the chance to test all five and I think I will revert back to the Sauber, as in Fuji. It is an absolute gaz guzzler compared to all the other cars but it's still just so nice to drive...
so, my final entry is:
>>#61 Sauber Mercedes C9

No one's taken a Porsche yet if you want it, I count down but I guess it could be a bit clearer.
