    Oh, I know. You’ve made your aversion to road car events pretty clear last week. That’s why I didn’t tag you in this one.

    Not actually. Maybe I was a bit rude, sorry, I don't like the type of cars you chose to use for this one, but I like the other road cars like the Pontiac Firebird, S-FR Racing Concept and so on.

    I do like your NASCAR suggestion. That might be something worth trying out, especially for the ovals.

    I'm in a least a few rounds! We can use different cars each race, correct?

    Yes, there’s no restriction as to how many times you can use a car. As long as it’s on the permitted cars list, you can stick to one car or switch for each race.

    There's something else that I neglected to mention. As you're looking over the specs for this week's event in the master post, you'll notice that the Race Schedule template looks different than usual. I'm going to start including the day type, time, and weather conditions, indicated by the row of Xs below the track selection. I only bothered doing this when a race featured a wet weather event, but I'll be doing it for all conditions as I know lighting (or lack thereof) can play a role in one's racing experience. That way, people will know the exact specs and can practice accordingly. Here's what I'm referring to:

    Race Schedule
    Round 1

    Fuji Speedway (Short) - 4 Laps
    XXXX | XXXX | XXXX
    Round 2
    Autodrome Lago Maggiore (West) II - 5 Laps
    XXXX | XXXX | XXXX
    Round 3
    Kyoto Driving Park (Miyabi) - 9 Laps
    XXXX | XXXX | XXXX
    Round 4
    Sardegna (B) - 5 Laps
    XXXX | XXXX | XXXX
    Round 5
    Tokyo Expressway (SOL) - 4 Laps
    XXXX | XXXX | XXXX​

    Did a bit of testing with the cars to figure out what I'll use and get a couple of them tuned. Lap times ranged between 1'56.8xx and 1'58.9xx for me around Fuji.

    @RappyThePro let me know if you can’t access the room. You may need to send me a PSN friend request if you can’t enter it.

    Next week’s specs are up. It’s a mixed class race car event featuring the NSX.

    Looks good. Had a great time racing today’s events. Sorry I had to bug out early. Any chance of bumping up the start time to 8am?

    Different classes on different tracks? Or like all classes on the track together?

    I like the idea of the NSX multiclass, but it's a bit mad to put 3 classes if we don't get the full grid. I think it's sufficient to have Gr.3 and Gr.4 class. Anyway, count me in! Sorry if I missed last round but I couldn't enter.

    I certainly don’t mind starting an hour earlier, but it also depends on how the time bump works for everyone else involved.

    @LineR32 @TurboTacho, how well does starting an hour earlier this upcoming Saturday work for you guys?

    It sounds great, but I'll give it a try before jumping on the conclusion of the trial!

    On top of that, to make up for the lost weekend. I'm sure many will go for the Gr.2 cars.

    With the ability to tune, plus the skill of certain drivers, I feel Gr.3 and even Gr.4 can be at least competitive with Gr.2. We’ll see.

    Thoughts on boost for NSX Trophy: light, heavy, or off?
