    the way qualifying works in this game, we would all have to go at the same time. Unless the host gives 15 minutes to Gr.1 and 15 minutes to Gr.3 out of the 30 minute total, which would make sense. Otherwise us Gr.3 guys would have to keep giving way to the faster LMPs and Group Cs and Catalunya is rather short to be honest, so there would be a lot of those shenanigans. :cheers:

    That's a damned good point, and not something that hadn't even crossed my mind.

    The 15/15 split would work nicely. Especially with having the fuel consumption up at 15x for quali.

    Edit. Need to change the qualifying fuel consumption rate. Gr.3 don't even get two flying laps at x15. We'll go x10. Saves all of that fuel burning nonsense.

    You're more than welcome to jump in, if we have people drop out.

    Im not sure if it'll be on YouTube. The only person here with a dedicated following is @Mistah_MCA. That said, I may see what I can do for getting a good replay saved/edited, and then upload that on my channel.

    Cheers bud. Genuinely don't mind not participating, but it would be interesting to watch, even highlights. In any case, I'll check the calendar (by which I mean I'll ask my wife to see if anything is expected of me that weekend) & let you know whether to add me to reserve list. It will give me an excuse to practice Catalunya, a track I'm not overly fond of.

    P.s. Ever seen the film Grand Prix from the '60s with James Garner? The race scenes from that are how edited highlights should be, in my humble opinion. Split screen interviews with drivers etc alongside the race footage is so awesome, or simultaneously watching an overtake from both drivers viewpoints. Really clever cinematography.

    If you really want some highlights, I can post them on my YouTube Championships channel. It would be nice to post the highlight of a championship like this! If we find a streamer, then, we can also stream the races!

    I wouldn't mind recording my perspective.

    Also, for Gr. 1 car choice, I'm thinking of going with the Toyota TS050.

    Right now I'm stealing the wifi of the Miskatonic University to check my GT Sport profile... and to send pictures from the Necronomicon:D .

    I won't race. 23:00 GMT here's midnight, and I can't race that late on Sundays.

    Even with the adjustment to the fuel consumption, would it be worth a test run sometime before the big race?

    Hell, I only have 64 subscribers. :lol: If I knew how to connect my PS4 stream to YT, I'd likely do it. Just watching me drive like a knob would be worth making popcorn. :crazy:

    Two late additions: first, I just got to watch some of Petit Le Mans from Road Atlanta. There were multiple instances of one class car showing displeasure with a lower class car & a couple of crashes between cars in different classes. So, at least I know what to expect. :lol: Second, not to be the golden snitch, but if we're banning the F1 GTR, we might want to consider banning the Viper also. 100% power with that car is 678 HP.

    Actually, a third extra thought. @Bivittavus88, if I may, I would like to choose the Ford GT as my ride.

    Yeah, I'll definitely hold a few practice lobbies. Fuel won't be an issue in the race, as it'll be set to 3x. I just don't want everyone fuel saving in quali, so it'll be 10x there.

    The speed difference between the two classes is going to make for one hell of a dynamic, should two Gr.1 cars come up behind a Gr.3, while fighting for position.

    I don't think the Viper is going to be much of an issue. It's about 300kg heavier than the F1, and from what I remember, it doesn't have great brakes, and eats it's tyres.

    Ford GT you say? Done.

    Sunday 4pm (EST) to 6 pm, November 3rd, that should be fine with me. My kids might drive me crazy but I'm used to that.

    This looks like this is going to start just after the US Grand Prix finishes!
    I might be a bit late for qually, but I'm ok to start from the back if I miss it.

    I'll get back you about car choice as I'll need to run some laps without BoP (it's nearly always on for me due to sport mode) and at the fuel/tyre settings for our Spanish race.

    It'll definitely be nice having you in the Jag, competing against Sven in the Nissan.

    Don't worry too much about quali. Gr.1 will get the first 15 min slot, followed by us Gr.3 guys.

    That's the thinking, yeah! Even if we get murdered by the prototypes, it should be fun navigating those beasts through the traffic.

    My money's on Sven, as I remember from dailies with friends that he's somewhat better than me. Looking forward to it! Will be putting in practice laps as much as possible so I don't embarrass myself too much :)

    I've run a few laps in a lobby with our race settings and looked at the power & weight of the GR 3 cars.....

    Annoyingly, I'm gonna go with the Toyota Surpa GR 18!

    Its quick and I can fuel save without having to think too much about it (I've never raced in a Sport Mode C race or an FIA race, so fuel saving isn't a skill I have learned).

    I've never missed around with the power or weight settings of any of my cars, so I'll automatically be at 100% for both power and weight.

    Confirmed to race and ready to go! Will be racing in my HKS C7.R with livery courtesy of GTSRL member @ironduck92. Can it be Nov 3rd already?
