    It's cheaper to pay for a couple of tourist laps than rent the whole track for private testing :sly:

    The weather isn't letting anybody have it easy, I still think Audi #3 will end up winning but there are enough different cars in contention and the track conditions could take any of them out in a second.

    @PTLobo2 I tried to race against the ai just to see how the visibility could be with all the lights of the cars and something came to my mind:

    Why not reserve each type of light for each category? For example, we can have the yellow light for the gr3 cars and the white lights for the gr4 cars. Because I sincerely think drivers will be confused if they get a blue flag, see two cars behind them and doesen't know if they are gr3 cars or gr4 cars, or both

    I know it's a bit late, and most people have already finished or picked their livery but I think it's important for the safety of the race

    I mean, fair enough, im just nervous about mandating it because its so short notice.
    But lets make it white headlights for gt3, yellow ones for gt4.
    Please do react to this post in some way to make sure you took notice of this. Do consider that we have previously changed fuel from 2x to 1x as well.

    PS: Regarding penalties, you are required to serve them on the next available straight. If it takes half a lap for that to happen its ok, just please do not serve it in a twisty section, it will get messy for everyone. The only exception is the Döttinger Höhe (the huge straight at the end of the lap) - its so huge you lose an unreasonable amount of time by slowing down for minor penalties. You are allowed not to serve penalties there, and do it on the finish line straight right after instead.

    The game gives you about 10 minutes to finish your lap once the timer hits 0 on this track so 15 minutes should be fine (I think that is what we used in @Kermit_2142 's race here). I'll have to check but I'm pretty sure the Porsche I'm using has yellow lights, I might need to change number and find something else.

    So it’s white Lights for GT3 an Yellow lights for GT4?

    What about adding additional to the lights black Window sticker for GT3 and white ones for GT4?

    It's a night race. You're not going to see the colour of anyone's window banner, but you'll see the colour of their lights.

    You are in the reserve list at the moment. As the race is this friday, do you know if you can race or not?

    I haven't tried how badly the tyres wear, but without conserving fuel at all I used 11% for a single lap, which means a one-stopper should be possible in group 4 (the Vette is not easy on fuel!) with only a little saving along the way.

    The tyre wear might make a two stopper the better option anyway.

    Because its at night and harder to see, i recommend turning on the warning lights at the back of the car before serving a penalty. Also, please do it off the racing line! Thank you.

    @PTLobo2 I’m going to switch to the Peugeot RCZ GT3 car instead of the supra for the Nürburgring race.

    I have one more question. Who is hosting the lobby on Friday night. I guess it’s a private lobby, so I probably have to add one more friend!

    I'm hosting. Honestly, it can be public really, we had no issues last race and that was public... Still, do feel free to send a friend request, in case i end up doing it privately if everyone sends me a request too. PSN: PTLobo2.

    Going to be an interesting morning for me.

    Will be racing from the hotel I’m staying at over the next 2 nights as I’ve finally got a weekend filming assignment. The screen is about a third of the size I use at home and the volume controls on both the remote and the TV itself don’t work.

    Only 50 minutes guys. I’m going to have some salad, a big cup of coffee and then I‘ll take a seat in front of my racing wheel.
