    When you mentioned this the other day I didn't realize you were planning the change of day and time. Thursday nights definitely stand a better chance during the summer. Will try and make it.

    I'm available for testing tomorrow. Maybe we can run a test session Thursday and see how it works out. Make some changes if needed for the first season.

    Perhaps run a short race in each car on same track?

    We are running some practice laps tonight to get a feel for these open wheel formula cars. Should be on about 9:30 to 11.

    I am all about this. Sign me up!!!

    Edit: Do you also plan on using the Renault Formula 3.5? I really like everything from that level down. FA and FB are crazy fast. How's the IndyCar?

    Nice! No we wont be doing any of the DLC cars for this series as there are a lot of open wheel cars already to get through a season with. But we will be doing some special events which could include them and also some vintage open wheelers.

    The vintage cars have such less grip, they're much harder to race in a pack. I like the Rookie, Gulf, and Formula C cars

    Honestly though, who doesn't have the DLC now? They're so cheap, and if you have to buy two just for the Renault and Lotus cars you're still spending under 10 bucks. Just get 'em lol

    The Formula Ford Lotus is a blast, but when you upshift it goes so low in the revs. So annoying to lose that "go" feeling.

    It's a plan for the future but as of now the only cars we will be using are the ones listed in the banner.
