    I accept that point entirely, but that wasn't the point you made. You used the word 'trying' in respect of drivers safely navigating the course on C/H, implying that it is difficult. It isn't. And it is only when people do give it a long enough go to acclimatise that they find out that it isn't impossible, and that it is much more engaging than blasting around with physics defying grip, holding the throttle 100% open 99% of the time.

    The 'I'm not even going to try' attitude is precisely why there are far too few people interested in finding out how enjoyable managing a smaller grip/power/braking/steering envelope can be.

    You could perhaps do with adding a bit of open mindedness to your looks, charm and sense of humour.

    Cheers, Zo. (Note to TeamCZR, I'm sorry to have hijacked your thread somewhat, but I have difficulty accepting the 'I haven't done it, but I know all about it' mentality some people have. I promise I'll shut up now.)

    I am fully aware that it is not impossible to do. But if you were here for the 500km practice race a while back, you would see that it is not feasible for our talent pool. The drivers had a very hard time as it was, and it made for some awesome racing. That's the beauty of this race. We're trying to appeal to the average GT player who wants a serious challenge, rather than the aliens. Have a nice day.

    Still getting hyped for this. I'm getting a wheel to practice for this in a fortnight. :D

    EDIT: By the way, I haven't heard from @TeamCZRRacing in a while. Wonder where he went.

    I apologize for not getting the car specs down pat, I have been extremely busy as of late. I'll work on it this weekend.

    What's the planned start date for this? Also, if possible, I would like to use the McLaren F1 GTR race car. I realize it would need to be detuned quite a bit. If this car is out of the question let me know (I don't want to put a work load on you to determine a BofP for this car).

    Actually, I think I've started testing that one. I'll need to double check, but I certainly won't say it's out of the question.

    Shoot for a roughly 600pp race car, and I'll spec it out for balance.

    Speaking of which, could I get all participants to tell me what car they are using again so I don't have to search through the thread? Thank you!

    This should cover most of the options that you have:

    GT3
    600hp, 1350kg

    GT500
    450hp, 1100kg

    Deltawing (for the insane)
    250hp, 650kg

    Can I use the McLaren F1 GTR as mentioned previously? It can't conform to GT3 standards (below minimum weight) but can probably work for GT500 class? Also when is this event?

    I will spec yours and any others that don't fall into those categories individually. As for when, I don't honestly know. I haven't seen @TeamCZRRacing in this thread in quite a while.

    We're waiting until we can get at least eight concrete entries. That'll allow us to be spotlighted on the news page, which in turn should draw more attention and entries.

    Last I counted, we had four definite ones, and now there are 5 other possible entrants on this page, if I'm counting right.

    I think now would be a good time to agree on a date and time. How's next Saturday at 1pm EST sound, everyone?

    Yes, you are allowed a co-driver, but it's more fun going it alone as it draws out the personal endurance aspects more.

    My main concern with CH tires is that we had 27 cautions last time, and because of it the race lasted much longer than it needed to, and the amount of spinning resulted in a very strung-out race. RH tires would be more sensible IMO given the length and technicality of the track and the race. There would be fewer mistakes because of the higher grip, so the racing would be closer.
