@Sick Cylinder, four of us did two 3-lap races with the Pantera at N500. My view is that the car is still stable, still has understeer on entry, but with the extra power has more risk of oversteer on exit. I'd be happy with either setting, but if pushed might say N500 because of the slight extra challenge it brings.

Thanks for testing - we will stick at N400 for the rest of this series, but will race the Pantera at N500 in a future series!

This weeks track will be Spa Francorchamps and next week La Sarthe - I am trying to focus first on tracks at which the Pantera actually raced in period (although we will use the version of La Sarthe with chicanes otherwise the long straights can be a bit tedious).

NB If anyone is interested there are a lot of different Pantera liveries available to download from my gallery if required. I was planning to post up some pictures of racing Panteras to show the liveries used from 1972-79 and possibly have a go at making some of them, but haven't got round to that yet!

New Series - 1967 Chevy Nova N700 - car available from the Gran Turismo dealership located in Japan

Round 1 is at Brands Hatch GP

There are some race liveries for the Nova available to download from my gallery if required. If you want a different race number just let me know and I will reupload with the requested number. Please make requests via PSN as due to computer / laptop problems I am not checking GTPlanet very often.

The series will be unscored - i.e. just for fun. Big thanks to Half Sourly for scoring the previous series.

Hi John - I have the book by Mat Oxley "Stealing Speed" about Ernst Degners life - utterly brilliant read - get it if you can find a copy at a sensible price!

Next race is at Dragon Trail Seaside (20th October). Final race of the series (27th October) Nurburgring 24H - the long track which includes the old circuit.

New series will be for the TVR Tuscan - there are many different liveries for this car available to download from my gallery - I have done a 41 John Wells and a number 1 Harsk. If anyone likes a livery and wants their number to be applied let me know - best to communicate with me via the playstation - I am rarely on GT Planet at the moment as my laptop failed and I don't have a smart phone. Daughter will be getting a new laptop soon and passing her old one on to me so I should be back on GT Planet and relaunching our thread in a few weeks.

Watched a great film, on sky documenters about Ronnie Peterson The Flying Swede. Also 7 part program about the history of F1, called Race To Perfection.
