Welcome to everyone who has signed up so far. I’ve been a little busy this week but will update the thread with everyone’s entry details later on.
I will finish testing for the final race settings this week so we have a couple weeks to prepare.
I’ll tag some previous event entrants aswell and hopefully we can get a full grid 👍

Quick question Sir, my game is screwed because in order to obtain vehicle spec I must change power% to 97 (715 HP) & weight% to 102 (2405 Lbs). Did you BOP want it at 100 (737 HP) & 100 (2359 Lbs)? BOP drop down says N/A. Sorry for being a pain.

I will double check later on. It’s either the GTSport wiki has slightly wrong details or the difference between unit of measure ie hp vs bhp etc.

We will be running at 100/100 either way 👍

Update with race settings - (updated in op too)

The race will be just under the 60 minute mark at 33 laps. Multipliers are looking at x1 fuel / 2x tyres. I’m just trying to work out a balance for a pit window between the 25-35minutes so we have some overlap but not too much. To achieve this I will likely set fuel to start around 80% but I haven’t done the maths on this yet.
(I’m fairly happy with these but they may change slightly).

Track limits - I didn’t realise but between weak and strong, the track limit is actually the same, it’s just with strong the penalty is 3s instead of 0.5-1s. Penalties bleed off very fast so we will just use them for reference on weak. The zonda handles the curbs very well through the final chicane so cutting over the sausage is the best way to go, I tried running around them, similar to how it’s taken irl but I found 8/10 laps I would catch the 1st sausage with the front left tyre which bounces the car awfully.

6 days to go, really looking forward to running this track in this car. Lots of practice to get used to THIS car happening here in southern Spain. Expect maybe the race will be as fun as I usually have at THIS track. Good luck to all on their practice sessions.
