The NISMO Festival at Fuji Speedway is happening (or has happened depending on when you're seeing this ;) ) on the 8th of December. Thought it would be fun to do a little recreation for fun with nothing on the line but bragging rights and some good solid racing. We will run on a Monday at a time suitable for US and European players to participate. (Hopefully you have this day off :D) Check the spoiler boxes below for specifics and we hope to see you out there! :)

Please note, the event will be run in a Friends Only lobby. If you plan on participating, please send me a friend request on PSN. 👍

Apparently Toyota is having their festival as well this weekend. Depending on the popularity of this, might just do that one too.

I'll confirm with you during the Flyin' Miata race a day prior, that way I'll have a pretty good idea wether i can run or not. It has good chance i can run but I want to be 100% sure, which i'll be during the Miata race

This race and the classic is a multiclass race basically? Even if I read multiple times, I cannot see how it's gonna work out

Multi-class. I will manually confirm BOP prior to qualifying.

BUT, judging on the absence of traffic in this thread, chances of this happening are looking pretty dim.

ah, that's a bummer. Well it's a monday so not surprising. I tried passing the word around my team, don't think it went pretty well. Maybe try to make the lobby open to all, like you said it just for fun so why not

Is there a reason for this? From what I've tested and seen, the Manufacturers Number plate just uses the same font as the FIA races. Also, you actually don't even need the number plates turned on the cars themselves in Livery Editor as the selected lobby Numberplate will just show those numbers on its own:

I'm just saying adjust accordingly so the number plates don't cover sponsors, etc.
