    Nice one fella short track though so would expect close times:sly: :) Do you plan on using either Fuji F/GT or Monza? I usually like to test using these tracks and can do obviously if you plan to use either.:idea:

    I'm really interested in this series for sure. I will be racing in it. But just 1 question. Can you explain why only 2 independent drivers?

    Okay, I'll put your name down mate! The reason why we're only allowing 2 independent drivers is so that we can keep the teams championship more interesting.. Instead of having 3 teams and 10 independent drivers.. However, we may increase the number of independent drivers allowed to 4 if demand is high enough! :tup:

    That's fine mate! :tup:

    Well, after the testing at Brands Hatch.. We've have managed to discover several things...

    - The Primera is by far the fastest car of the bunch.. With the Accord not far behind.. Both will need to be slowed down.
    - The Ford, Renault and Peugeot are all way off the pace - they need some work...
    - The Toyota can post a competitive lap time but really requires some good skill to muscle it around...
    - The BMW could maybe do with a tad bit of work on it as it's a little off the pace (by 0.3 seconds behind main crowd).
    - The Volvo is the fastest of the main group of cars. May need a tiny bit of work to slow it down.
    - The Alfa Romeo, Audi, Toyota, BMW and Volvo are really the main runners in this.. And will most likely not need changes.

    With that I've already limited my choices to 4 manufacture. I'm gonna do some testing in those cars then I'll decide.

    Is there a certain amount of each car available, 2/3/4? And is tuning allowed? And can all parts be fitted, including aero/wing/flat floor?

    I don't think you can get flat floors for standards

    All parts are available unless stated otherwise! :tup:
    For testing purposes, wheels must be "1 Inch Up"..

    Tried a couple cars, the Toyota and the Alfa.

    Toyota- Nice little car but is prone to lift of oversteer which makes it a bit tricky sometimes, once you get over that it can hook up some mighty laps :tup:

    Alfa- Fun nimble car to drive. In the corners its nice on entry but its easy to overestimate the grip it has and drop a wheel on the grass.

    I agree with that about the Toyota - and the Alfa is a bit of a awkward one as you think you can take a corner at a speed you just can't..

    The Ford and Peugeot are really loosing out due to them having a really soft suspension (I've not changed anything in the Suspension Setups) - and the Honda and Primera are both scrapping up front!

    Have you considered the cars having different powers as well as different weights, possibly to make things more interesting?

    I was looking at that in the GT5 Days of the STCC Planning - but John pointed out it'd be very hard to steward! :p

    Yeah, some will defiantly be going!
