    Is it possible to pick up the GTE spot then ? :D
    Maybe... Depends on the events frequency.

    Events will be around once or twice a month. You can be in GTE.

    Since the practice race is next weekend, please choose the car you wish to run for the season. No more than two of each car make allowed in P1 and P2, and in GTE to keep a good variety and to not have everyone using the same car. You may switch to a DLC car if they fit into the series.

    Your choices are:

    P1:
    Audi R18 TDI(Mandatory switch to E-tron once released)
    Marek RP339h (PM 06a) LMP1
    RWD P30 LMP1

    P2:
    Oreca 03 Nissan
    Alpine A450
    RWD P20 LMP2
    Marek RP219D LMP2

    GTE:
    Aston Martin Vantage GT3(Mandatory switch to GTE version once released)
    Audi R8 LMS Ultra
    BMW M3 GT (E92)
    Ruf RGT-8 GT3
    McLaren 12C GT3
    BMW Z4 GT3
    McLaren 12C GT3
    Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT

    Please make you decision before next Saturday or you will be removed from the series to make room for other drivers.

    I'd like to pick the Ruf please :)

    BTW how does the livery selection works (I mean in game) ? I'm not sure if the game saves the one you pick each time I select a car, I had few surprises so I'm wondering if anyone knows a bit more about this ?

    The start time will be one that will work for everyone, I just have to figure out the best time for all the regions. But I'm thinking it will be around 1 or 2 pm central US time.

    Why is it mandatory to change some cars? As I understand, the P30 and the Marek are made with 2011 specs in mind, just like the R18 TDI

    The same applies to GT. The Aston Martin Vantage GTE, theoretically, would have better performance than the GT3 cars.

    All GT cars are balanced if I'm not mistaken, because there isn't enough GTE cars for a full GTE class. The reason why the change is mandatory is so we don't have R18 TDI's and E-trons in the same race. Same reason for the switch being mandatory for the Aston. If there is an advantage with the Aston, then that will be addressed and taken care of. And the Fictionak LMPs are actually modeled after 2013 spec, so they would actually be closer to the performance of the e-tron.:tup:

    If everything goes to what I've planned, I'd like to take the RWD P30 in the RWD livery.

    But, as far as I know, pCARS will be released in May 19th in Brazil.

    I'll try to get my copy as early as the next wednesday, since I know a guy. But the chances are slim, at best.

    So, you could put my participation on hold.

    You will only be missing the practice race worse case, so you'll be just fine!

    Wow just had a spin in the Marek and RWD LMP1 and they are amazing !

    I have a question, about driving assists, are we using none, some or same as used in real life in each category respectively ?

    You may get a full time spot if one of the GTE drivers doesn't respond to my message.
