I'd love to see a new Bonus Menu where instead of a trio of single races, it's actually an all-new championship - one that would require earning one of the later licenses. As for potential championships that could require an Super License, maybe you could see one focused on Gr.1 - including rounds at the Daytona Road Course and Le Mans - or perhaps the F1500T-A.

We also still only have a single event at Monza and Mt. Panorama. The former could be a good place for an additional Ferrari Cup or Gr.1 Prototype Series event, while the latter could feature a round of the WTC 700 and/or WTC 800.
I won't talk about cars because we quite clearly have enough threads for that already. Same for tracks.

But racing events? I definitely have quite a lot of ideas piled up that I can share here.

All AI if on Hard mode, should be as challenging as the "The Human Comedy - Maggiore 1hr Gr.3" AI at the very least.

I tried to be "realistic" a bit on the patterns for each mission/cafe menu book races and rewards (lol at this last one, but it seems fair at least).

There would be plenty (really, a ton) more events to be added featuring several other types of cars, but I would personally like these endurance-type events with high level category cars to be added the most. Especially in Championship format which this game is lacking big-time.

One more idea, and this one should be obvious:

Car Testing in Special Stage Route X featuring:

-Ability to test a car's top speed over the 10km straight
-Ability to test a car's 0-100kph, 0-200kph, etc times.
-Ability to test a car's G force when launching the car from a standstill.
-Ability to check a car's drag times (0-400, 0-1000m, etc).

... So basically, what you had in Gran Turismo 5. Still wonder why PD is sleeping on this. Tons of folks like to just spend time fine tuning their cars to just achieve the highest top speeds. Why is this not in this game yet is a huge surprise to me. PD certainly watches youtube enough to notice the plethora of people who post tons of videos about cars top speeds on the specially designed test track right!? They can't be this ignorant...

A while back - before we even got the first post-launch Menu Books - I decided to come up with a few of my own, and tie some events to them as well. Since we now know that the post-launch books are either dedicated to the races or to the car collecting, with no combined menu books similar to the original 39, I'm gonna solely focus on the events, and lay them out similar to how @Grimm6Jack has done so above me.

Lightweight Challenge - Limited to road cars under 1000 kg (2204 lbs) only - 700 PP limit
  • Brands Hatch GP - 4 laps - 65,000 Cr. (97,500 Cr. CRB)
  • Goodwood - 5 laps - 70,000 Cr. (105,000 Cr. CRB)
  • Alsace Village Reverse - 4 laps - 75,000 Cr. (112,500 Cr. CRB)
I imagine once Lotus returns to the game, these events are gonna be a whole lot of fun to tackle in an Elise. Or you could always just cheese them in a detuned Enzo...

Premium Sports Lounge - Limited to road cars above 100,000 Cr. only - 800 PP limit
  • High Speed Ring - 8 laps - 110,000 Cr. (165,000 Cr. CRB)
  • Monza - 5 laps - 125,000 Cr. (187,500 Cr. CRB)
  • Road Atlanta - 7 laps - 130,000 Cr. (195,000 Cr. CRB)
A lot more variety in this one. Probably a lot of ways to go about it. Interesting to see what'll be the fastest option.

Group C Series - Limited to pre-1993 Gr. 1 cars only - 950 PP limit

  • Le Mans No Chicane - 3 laps - 220,000 Cr. (330,000 Cr. CRB)
  • Tokyo Expressway East Counterclockwise - 6 laps - 240,000 Cr. (360,000 Cr. CRB)
  • Mount Panorama - 6 laps - 240,000 Cr. (360,000 Cr. CRB)
  • Watkins Glen - 8 laps - 250,000 Cr. (375,000 Cr. CRB)
  • Monza No Chicane - 7 laps - 250,000 Cr. (375,000 Cr. CRB)
Here's where the real money starts to come in.

'80s F1 Challenge - Limited to the F1500T-A and MP4/4 only

  • Interlagos - 12 laps - 350,000 Cr. (525,000 Cr. CRB)
  • Catalunya No Chicane - 11 laps - 360,000 Cr. (540,000 Cr. CRB)
  • Suzuka - 9 laps - 375,000 Cr. (562,500 Cr. CRB)
  • Spa-Francorchamps - 8 laps - 385,000 Cr. (577,500 Cr. CRB)
  • Brands Hatch GP - 13 laps - 390,000 Cr. (585,000 Cr. CRB)
  • Monza No Chicane - 10 laps - 400,000 Cr. (600,000 Cr. CRB)

Big money for whoever's winning these - the AI will be around as competitive as the cruel monsters in the Human Comedy events. Better switch to Easy if you can't handle that.

I would like to have better AI as soon as possible.

And the biggest feature that i am missing is:

- The offline multiplayer championship

- The same championship that exists online but offline
- You can make the races off line against AI to obtain race points (time to finish, level AI, position, clean race and others) and than see your position against other players and get points for that race. Several automatic championships by level, region , sub-region, country, friends
- A very important feature is that you have the same penalties that have online and only 3 tries per race.
- with this you start to know your rivals (people with same level)
- Participate in a champioship. Almost all events offline are one race event and the objetives are money and pride.

Why this?
I don't have time to race fixed hours in fixed days. With these offline championship, i start to be more motivated to race a championship with other people and know who is at my level.
With these you can also train for online event (if they were the same) because the penalties for bad races are the same.
