    An hour later start turns into an hour earlier over there? Australia really is upside down.

    I've got some you can use. ;)

    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.

    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.

    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):

    Ready to take the 'Vitessa V' out again in addition to my reserve duties at Suzuka. Fuji went very well aside from a few mistakes, so looking forward to seeing how it goes here.


    Race Number: #92

    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 :tup:.

    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:.

    It's mostly the ingame Bop, I've taken a bit of power from the Porsche and added some to the Mazda, as they were both outliers in testing. And indeed no tuning.

    @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 :)

    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.

    I'll go for Jaguar #33
    I think we've had the same idea, are you in a purple Silk Cut livery?

    We'll use the one with chicane. I fear the Nissan would run away with it if we didn't.

    #60 is the car that won overall in 1988 so you're good there

    ...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
    using the 1988 WEC livery, created by TimpeliTompeli (link):

    I’ll take a slot please Fuji was intense. Looks like Porsche are taken so I’ll go with the Nissan R92CP.

    Nissan R92CP #42 if I can trouble someone for a livery. If not I’ll update #something.

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

    I wanted to run this desperately, group C isn't favourite, but I have committed to Adam's race and need to spend family time. So I have to decline. And @Sven Jurgens took my race number :)
