    Monday Night Racing continues the tradition of weeknight racing.

    Our lobbies are publicly open, but the settings are set up to encourage fair and safe driving from everyone, and to encourage tuning within reasonable limits (default power and weight).

    If this kind of driving interests you, please look for Monday Night Racing lobbies for GT or for the Project CARS 2 racing.

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

    Car: Lamborghini LP610-4 SS 601 3135

    Tracks / laps:
    Dragon Trail Gardens 2 (8)
    Monza w/chicane (8)

    This is the cheapest Lamborghini that we have, but it does cost 1 or 2 races at La Sarthe. Please find your braking zones or else you will get surprised!

    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.

    Canada Day Endurance Racing:

    Four new tracks will be used with four different cars, tire wear & fuel. At least 1 pit stop will be required, a 2nd one may be necessary.

    Barcelona (13 laps) morning, Honda Civic Type R SH tires, 305 HP, 3042 lbs, 5X tires, 8X fuel.

    [​IMG]

    Autopolis long (13) mid-day, Mazda Atenza Gr.4 SS tires, 393 HP, 3042 lbs, 4X tires, 9X fuel.

    [​IMG]

    Fuji Short (17) mid-day, Dodge Viper GTS SS tires, 640 HP, 3430 lbs, 4X tires, 4X fuel.

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

    The Hellcat is a tame but fun car. Try it on La Sarthe no/chicanes.

    If you thought that the Genesis was a puzzle, wait until next week!

    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.

    July 22 @ 7:30 Eastern

    Car:
    Gran Turismo Greddy Fugu Z, Sport Hard tires, 249 HP, 2425 lbs

    [​IMG]

    Tracks and laps:
    Sardegna Road C (12)
    Autopolis Shortcut (10)
    Maggiore West (9)

    A fun car (300K credits) on short tracks.

    There was a typo in the date. It is correct, now.

    My T-GT was almost unusable, the last time that I tried to use it. I had to reinstall the G29 again. I miss it already...
