    Does the idea of the Supra cup interest you? Do you also wish it was run with a racing variant of the car?
    I have just the series for you.
    Eight rounds across Asia (and one flyaway in Brazil) in a custom BoP'd Gr.3 GR Supra Racing Concept.​

    These are sprint races. Fuel consumption will be on, but will not be an issue.
    Drivers Dr:B and below will be considered Am drivers, and will be competing for an Am Cup.

    Season begins Sunday 5th of July.
    Races every other Sunday.
    Lobbies will open at 22:45 UK time. (14:45 PST - 17:45 EST)
    Quali will begin at 23:00 UK time. (15:00 PST - 18:00 EST)
    Total event time approx 1 hour.

    Note. While this is a little more serious than one off races, it's a game.

    Pretty sure "tracks you're rubbish on" aren't a thing, but sure ^^

    Appropriate race number o.o.

    Have had my struggles with this car too but apparently it's a little less silly with the power not jacked through the roof.

    I am rubbish at the car and more than half the tracks but last season taught me that there is no better way to grow than to go. So I am going again

    Agree with this. I've got better at GTS due to racing in @El_Beardo 's last championship and it helped highlight my weak points. @Kermit_2142 series is helping me learn fuel and tyre management (Official FIA races are not a good time for me).

    I still enjoy hot lapping for the dailies, but I've done less than 10 daily races since lockdown - and they were on my second account.

    There's more than a couple of us "Am" drivers looking just to get better from these series.

    Look forward to honing our skills against each other :)

    The more you drive cars/tracks you’re not good at, the better you will get and the less cars/tracks you’ll not be good at then. :)
