    Based on a super silhouette format, each manufacturer is fielding eight cars.
    Cars are powered by 2.0L turbocharged engines, pushing close to 600 horsepower.
    A minimum weight of just 1095kg, and bespoke aero packages mean these are rapid machines.

    Lobby will open at 20:45 UK time. (12:45 PST - 15:45 EST)
    Quali will begin at 21:00 UK time. (13:00 PST - 16:00 EST)
    Race time should be approximately 90 - 95 mins.

    You stole my idea! :lol:

    How long do you think qualifying will be? If it's 30 minutes or less I can make it

    Probably 15 mins.

    In game setting will likely be at 20, to allow people to change tyre compounds, or switch from quali to race suspension/diff settings, if they want to.

    Should point out, the Subaru has been fastest in testing so far, despite the slight weight disadvantage.

    OK, fastest by about a tenth. But, still fastest.

    Why'd it have to be Sunday UK time. Could've made it if it were either Friday or Saturday UK time.

    @El_Beardo every now and then you should run one of these at 8am your time. That way I and the other Asia participants would be able to compete at a reasonable time (for once) and the Americas crowd would have to drive at the obscenely late hours you normally have to keep when racing in their series. Meanwhile you'd get to experience the time we Asia participants normally have to suffer. :sly: :crazy: :lol: :gtpflag:

    Couple of detail changes, if it changes your availability.
    1. Now racing at Fuji. That long straight is a nice short break during long races.
    2. Mrs Beardo reminded me that we're busy on the 9th. So, moving to Saturday, 15th August.
    You can. Provided the above is OK with you, too.

    This time change is looking a treat! I haven't been able to do any of these things since the Gr. 2 race at Laguna Seca. Cleared it with the missus, kids will just have to deal with it. Count me in.
    GTP - redneckchef
    PSN - phreelickz
    Car - Subaru
    Number - 31

    Will switch to lancer if someone gets caught out as I dont really car too much either way on that one.

    Ahaha we go to Fuji, what a shocking surprise.

    I'll take Subaru #83, my dude. I'll attempt my first replica/replica transfer livery with the 1991 WRC Subaru Legacy.

    We do. A. Because it's me. B. Because it's less of a faff than Autopolis. C. Because the long straight is better for overtaking, given the "must run maximum downforce" thing.

    Fuji is life. :bowdown:

    Nice! Slap the Hankook decals in that, and we're all good to go :cheers:
