Monday Night Racing continues the tradition of weeknight racing. Each week's events are reprised on Wednesday evenings, too, for drivers in European time zones. Make sure to select All Regions, in Sport. Wednesday lobbies are entitled as Not So Easy Racing.

We have been racing in open lobbies since August 20, 2012, so the Real settings are well tested. Events and settings are designed to challenge the driver's skills with 1-make races, to encourage fair and safe driving from everyone, and to encourage tuning within reasonable limits (default power and weight, which is good practice for you Sport Mode drivers). If you don't tune, suggested settings are posted here and in our PSN Party Chat. Monday Night Racing encourages beginners or drivers returning to GT to get up to speed with us, and we will also do our best to chase any aliens.

We follow a monthly schedule which ensures that every type of content in GT gets used:

Week 1: small street cars - N100-N400
Week 2: small race cars up to Gr.4, rally cars
Week 3: big street cars - N500-N1000
Week 4: big race cars, Gr.3 and up
Week 5: special events, something different

Once a car is used, then another unused car is selected. That way, all of your MNR cars will eventually get tuned. If this kind of racing interests you, select All Regions in GT Sport and look for Monday Night Racing - 1-make [car name] ONLY lobbies for GT; sometimes we use other racing sims. Select "follow" for this thread, to get e-mail notifications from GT Planet. With the loss of PSN Communities, weekly race details will be posted here, as usual, and in the message list attached to our PSN Party Chat.

Race until you drop. Most Monday Night Racing lobbies stay open for 2-4 hours, sometimes longer.

It was a great night of racing. Thanks again Master-GT

Thank you, oldphart! There are so many good handling cars in Sport, so we aren't anywhere near finished exploring them yet. And we are going to get one of my favourite GT cars of all time, tonight, a Clio Sport, so buckle up.

We have used 2 of these cars before, so most of you should have tuned cars. Sport doesn't allow fine tuning of consumption, so watch your fuel usage.

Whoof, I am not alive at that time.

In my few laps setting this up, I haven't had a lap clean enough to get under 1'10. Maybe... if I am lucky.
 
The alarm goes off @ 4 am for work.
I will be opening a room today at various times throughout the day. Taking breaks from trying to make this thing go faster.

RB 1:12
St. C 2:54
NBGP ?
So, first up will be NBGP, then back to St. C
