    Are there going to be racing numbers on the cars in this? In the picture on the Sport menu the cars have numbers, but there's nothing on them when you're in practice mode.

    I suspect there will be the usual race numbers along with probably a Supra event badge maybe.

    Now actually working on my livery so I'm going to work on the basis it will stick a number plate over the usual spots and
    design my own number plaque around it so I can see both.

    This is from earlier in the thread. We'll wait and see what number plates are final. Could be the Cup plates in the pics or Nations plates.

    Hi guys, if you want to watch, I did a track guide in Fuji Speedway with the GR Supra (GR Supra Cup combo). My fast lap time was 1:55,981.

    Thanks!

    That's only been speculated by some people online.

    I find it highly unlikely they wouldn't advertise that if it were the case to get maximum participation. Also highly unlikely that at the Finals in October the winner of the Supra Cup gets a surprise car and the winner of the World Championship doesn't.

    The contest is open to 6 years old kids. This should be enough to tell you if there's a real car to win or not.

    You can include me in with those 6 year olds. This thing is seriously hard to keep planted, even on the long 5th gear 3rd corner the back end is doing its best to overtake the front. My best is a 1:58.xxx using DS4, with TC1. Really don't want to go up to TC2 (or any other assists for that matter), but it feels painfully slow to crawl around in order to keep the car in check.

    I'll have another bash tonight after checking out @Igor Fraga's track guide (as if I could hope to emulate that!!!).

    If you see this car - Please be aware I tend to bake early and I have a fat ass, so be patient and I’ll let you by on the straights :D

    Still wondering about the number plate issue. Not sure if I should make a livery that makes space for the standard plate.

    I put a standard plate on the car while i’m making the livery. I then put a non standard number plate with my number ,74, as a decal underneath so the sport race number covers it up.

    This car is actually fun to drive on sport soft tires.

    Hint, hint PD.

    Oh, shoot. Nearly forgot it's starting soon. Busy watching the start of Super Taikyu and making liveries and completed the Start Player thing.

    Taking off time in the hundredths. Hate when it's like this. Going faster but not really.

    Got disconnected 10 seconds before matching. Is anyone having PSN issues?

    No, but I have a feeling I'm going to get smashed at T1

    It is putting number plates on the cars?

    Yes. Supra Cup versions.

    Race felt like a Daily Race. Don't take tyres. You can no stop with fuel 3 or 4 depending where you start and who you're racing. I pit lap 6 with 0.7 laps in the tank. I was being shadowed all race with a 1-2 second gap. Finished 6.3 seconds ahead.

    Good to know. Will remove what I have so it doesn't interfere.

    What sort of lap times were you running? Was it an all out sprint race or more casual?

    2:01s. It was comfortable once I got past T1. Again, going to depend on who's in your race. I was playing with fuel 3 and 4 one lap at 3 on the straights and 4 after the 130R. When 2nd place was catching a bit, I switched to Fuel 1 for lap 5. Should have just stayed Fuel 3 all race and no stopped. Again, that was my race.

    Disastrous start, 5 second penalty for nothing cost me what could've been 5th on a no-stop without the penalty. Got 12 more chances to make something of this series but that's not how I envisioned my return to Sport Mode going.

    Was not aware you could change the fuel trims during the race. Guess I better figure out how to do that.

    Also, livery change. Just something simple. (I have since removed my number plates)

    I'm sure you worked it out by now. However, with HUD on, bottom right of screen. right or left directional buttons will take you to it.
