    No, it's just when my brain gets stuck on 20s I see 20s everywhere. And copy and paste them everywhere.

    Oh god, I'm dreading the SF19 on 20x tyre wear already.

    I feel like PD are contractually bound to deliver the new GT86 and the new WEC Gr.1 LM Hypercar for upcoming events...

    Agreed. But what about the new GT500 Supra? Doubtless it'll be on GT7, but is there any chance to see it on GT Sport?

    If they put the new GT500 Supra in GTS they would have to include the other 2 Honda and Nissan counterparts as well. I don't think that's coming to GTS, but imo in GT7 it's a lock, together with the other two "batches" we had in Sport and other iconic models.

    Would be better to have Grid Start for the 2000 GT race as well.

    Yeah grid start should be for all of them, except maybe the Super Formula. The cars are slow enough that carnage isn't an issue. We don't want the field spread to be 30 seconds before we even get to first corner :grumpy: Especially since looking at the low tyre wear + if they keep the long pit times it looks to be all no stop races.

    Oh well, just gonna treat is as a nice Sunday drive (especially the 2000GT one) :p

    Has anyone else tried the 2000GT combo yet? I just did a lap on the Comfort Softs in time trial out of curiosity and oh wow. That's going to take some serious discipline to make it around without any mistakes, let alone doing it quickly.

    I'm used to driving road cars on Comfort tyres so it feels fine to me. IRL this car probably has Comfort Mediums or Hards as the stock tyre. It's an old car on bicycle tyres so you're supposed to be sliding around ;)

    Why the game ask me to subscribe to the championschip? I really did not know it that was a requirement :(

    Saw a new GR Yaris on a flatbed presumably on way to being delivered today, In metro Detroit, of all places. It’s a damn cool car actually.

    It said the same thing for me in North America... "Registration Closed." I wonder if there was a sign up period for this...

    Well I came back to try again today and see this comp, but getting "registration closed" not that my pace is all that great now. Hope this is a mix up and I haven't missed this.

    Yeah i hope that's a mistake.
    I read nowhere about a pre registration in the series info.
    Hopefully where not locked out of the series on a stuipd technicality, id be really pissed.
    I was a major contender in the first two and was really looking forward to this .

    Also there's no laps set in the top 10 ranking, so maybe the event isn't even open and that's just the default page that comes up.
    Just a thought :confused:

    I see a pattern. Maybe the previous minutes refers to the registration?

    This is PD we are talking about. You need to be patient. They go at their own speed (very slow and usually behind).

    But doing the math from this race (9S/9H) with Hards required, I’m thinking with Hards the only required tire, a no stop will be best. I just lost too much time in the pits to justify running softs.

    May just skip the most FIA stuff(the Nation's N300 I do want to enter) and stick with these Toyota events. They're on Sundays, minimal openings, the cars change and for me, no stress. Plus, we all get to try a new car

    Probably some tweaking going on.

    I made a livery yesterday, used some Toyota Gazoo Racing decals. Made a livery today, those decals aren't there.
