Walking on country roads at that hour sounds dangerous, I suppose I should take a car. I was just going to check if there were any cool liveries floating about, does this rule mean the in game number plates or is anything okay as long as it as the number in the same kind of place?

Sport Mode number plates should be used. Please set it with the number you've chosen here.

Honestly as long as there’s a plate there with your number it’s cool! I just put that in there as the easiest path for people that were making their own liveries.

Updated the first post to clarify about number boards.

Nurb "endurance" in the dark? YES, I'M THERE.

Welcome!

As much as I’d love to have more BMW dominance, would you mind picking another car option? We’ve got two M6’s signed up so far and I left the Z4 out so there weren’t two BMW options. Sorry!

So I might have gotten a little too excited and skipped some of the literature... I'll take a Mercedes AMG.

Thanks for the invite, but I'll pass. The Nord is a mortal enemy of mine. Me running it at night would have you guys calling the authorities to report a UFO. Strange lights....mysterious noises...

Sounds awesome! However 3pm (EST) in June, I won't be able to see a thing :lol: I'll likely be out either cycling or swimming. Since the crisis my chances of having a serious race have moved to after 11pm, which is when I'm too tired to pay attention lol. This year sucks.

Good luck!

Understandable! I tried to schedule it so that people across the pond would be able to join at a reasonable time as well. Full immersion will take some blackout curtains for us stateside, haha!

Or you could just, y'know, not be healthy for 90 minutes and go out earlier in the day or after the race? There's plenty of daylight right now 👍

I'll try to show up but I need to clean my headlights. Toothpaste and baking soda right?

So lap times are looking to be around 8:50.xxx or so, which means 7 laps You can easily go FM2 for the twisty bits and not lose much time while going back to FM1 for anything 5th gear or higher. This gets you 4 laps of fuel. Or you can go flat out for 3 guaranteed laps but two pit stops. 3-2-2 | 2-3-2 | 2-2-3 | 2-4 | 4-2. These are your pit strategies 👍

With 8:50 laps will 15 minutes be enough to qualify? In sport mode it lets you finish the lap you're on but I'm not sure about lobbies.
