#9 please; I'll make a livery.
Also, I'll have the DB3S in the next few days.
I’m away this week so will miss this weeks race.
I just spent my 20 mill credits on a 330P4!! I have the 356 but could get the Aston by next Wednesday.
number 88 please for Porsche (Aston once I have enough credits)
That's great half! Number 9 noted!
You could still win the series as there is one dropped score!
You won't use the Aston until round 4 so there is plenty of time to save up - it's only 10m!
Number 88 noted!
Sick, you didn't note my number #1. I already have done a livery for my Porsche 356!
I don't have a Aston Martin DB3S yet, but will get one soon!
Sick have go my self thanks.
I'll skip round 1-3 and be back on 4th round with Aston Martin DB3S with #21.
Hi @Sick Cylinder. Just to clarify for the leaderboards I will be making:
- there will be one leaderboard for rounds 1 to 7, but only for those drivers who use the Porsche in all 7 rounds.
- there will be another leaderboard for rounds 1 to 7, but only for those drivers who use a Porsche in rounds 1-3 (only choice), but then switch to the Aston for rounds 4-7.
1) Is that a correct interpretation?
2) Does that mean someone who switches to the Aston in round 4 must stay in it to round 7, else drop off both leaderboards (as they would not meet the criteria for either)?
3) Or are drivers allowed to switch between the Aston and Porsche for rounds 4-7; these drivers would then not be on the 1st leaderboard (they didn't use the Porsche throughout), but would be on the second leaderboard.
Well this afternoon I managed to get GTS updated, then I purchased the Porsche, then I had a go on the gravel and dirt. I'll be there later. Number 8 for me.
I'm already putting some mileage on my Porsche.
I tested the car with Comfort Medium in front and Soft in the rear and it understeers.
1) Yes - correct interpretation.
2) Yes - people stay with the same car from round 4 onward.
3) No switching of cars from round 4 onward (even if the Aston is slower at some circuits)
Based on the number of people in the questionnaire who said they had an Aston and the number who have indicated they will have one in time for round 4, I am expecting half the field to be in either car.
It is not possible to get these cars exactly balanced so I think declaring two champions is the fairest way to proceed. The cars were very closely matched when I tested them, but they may not be as close for faster drivers, however I think they will be close enough in performance that we should get some exciting races. The Aston is faster in a straight line, but the Porsche has better brakes and better cornering.
I am hoping that this series will be successful and will open the door to some interesting series featuring unicorn cars and lower cost vehicles.
You have the choice of use soft tyres all round on the Porsche, but for a driver with lower skill like myself that is too difficult to control - for me it is better to have more control and less speed - I am expecting some of the fast drivers to prefer the soft tyres. Obviously this does not apply at Round 1 as dirt tyres will be fitted.
It's a great shame that the Race 2 of Round #1 was marred by connection issues. I was even disconnected before you all got disconnected...
So, who will use the Aston Martin from Round #4 onwards?
I will; bought it today, along with the Alfa - Cr.20m spent... Back to the rubber band!
Results from round 1 at Sardegna Windmills - just 1 round due to connection issues in race 2.
Leaderboard after round 1 (I have not yet deducted the worst result, else everyone would be on zero):
And some photos:
The Questionnaire currently indicates: Zolon, Sick, Jammy, Andreas (Simba) and Half.
Thread updated - current series details now in post 2 on page 1.
Note - there are a few spaces left if you want to join this series! - all welcome - young or old, novice or pro, fast or slow!
There was a programme on Ch4, Hitlers Supercars, should be quite interesting,(still got watch) World Speed Record Speed and GP cars had support.
Sick and all.
Some of my outside commitments have started up again from this week. So basically I won’t be available to race regularly on Wednesday evening anymore from today. If it’s ok I might turn up now and then but if that’s going to cause trouble then please let me know.
I wish you all a great time and championship. I was looking forward to racing the 356 and Aston but it’s not to be.
Hey guys I’d love to race with you guys
Speed middle to lower end of the pack
Just race when you are free Sutsagrd - it's always nice to see you on the grid!
Welcome GTP_Nail - I hope you enjoy the races!

Hi, I‘d love to join you guys.
Here is the leaderboard after tonight's single race (server issues preventing two races). Note that I have now started dropping each driver's worst score in line with the regulations.
And despite evidence through the race to the contrary, this photo (undoctored) proves that @Harsk100 and @buybon355 are in fact closest of buds.
Porsche mating season
Having watched last night's replay Guido, I must say that you're a very considerate and clean racer. I hope you can race with us often
Thanks, it was good fun.
I‘ll try to make every race.
We have had some connection problems in recent weeks - I will have a chat with our resident technical guru (IfAndOr) regarding how to reduce those.
