    By which logic is 5+10+15 = 20? :odd:

    Is Corvette Stingray really competitive;
    If so, it's a real bargain at 5.000.000!

    I just did it with the 300 SEL. First time I tried, a 330 P4 was the #1 AI at the start, and I just couldn't catch it, best I did was to finish 3.5 seconds behind it, with average lap times after the first one in the high 1:26s. I remembered seeing on here for a different race that you should quit and go back in if a certain car is at the front, so I did that here, and this time a 250 GTO was #1 at the start. That made it hugely easier to win, I caught the lead AI car on lap 4, I think, and opened up a lead of 3.5 secs by the last lap. It did rubber band to a pretty silly extent, but was still 1.5 secs behind me at the finish.

    When fully upgraded, it has 591 horsepower and the vehicle is fairly lightweight as well. I use the Corvette in Route X lobbies online. It can keep up with GT-Rs and Paganis at 295mph with a draft. People are surprised at how much of a sleeper it is considering it being 60 years old.

    May the Lord help you if you don't have at least a Mark IV or 330 P4 at Sardegna. I've got at least six of each so I don't need any help and just one will do but definitely go with the 330 P4.

    Edit: Having said that, a week after posting the above, I tried this race again on a different account where I have the 330 P4, and good lord it makes it so much easier to win, I was lapping 8 seconds a lap quicker than with the 300 SEL.

    This new AMG really makes those races affordable. Tried it for the first time without ABS, and other fancy modern stuff and nearly won 330 P4, was late like 3-4 seconds, but this because messed up big time at Les Combes twice. And damn, this car is a beast, so enjoyable!

    Edit: Won Greendwood first try. No struggle.

    Hello,

    Does anyone have tune specs for the AMG and Stingray?
    Monza , Le mans and Spa isn't a problem, can't finish first at the other ones.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey. I’ve only just raced these so my comment is late. So, when I started these races, I only had 1 gift car that qualified for these races, which was the Mercedes 300 SEL. I refuse to use 15 million credits (minimum) so I raced over and over and tuned the car over and over to suit each track and finally I got wins on all (apart from goodwood!)
    I’ve just won at brands hatch so I’m gonna share my personal tuning with you so you can give it a go. Bear in mind you have to be very consistent and make no mistakes, but you will win as I did.
    Let me know how you got on.
    If anyone has a good tune for this car to win goodwood please share with me :)
