    Final details and alignment are in the works. Not having a direct visual resource sucks just because it's hard to keep a project rolling.

    Appreciated, may take it up if anyone else needs a stand-in livery until one of you aces get done. I've been working with @Formidable and @rallymorten on weasles car, and hopefully this last relay should be the last one needed for it.

    I'm way behind on this series. Can someone make two paint schemes for the Renault Sport R.S.01?

    I'm doing liveries for @LITTLEBLACKO, the number plates (#23 and #24) haven't been added though. Alternatively I can remake them myself if I know what font was used for the numbers themselves?

    Due to only having 19 cars in with the first scheduled race supposed to be this month, the season has been postponed a year to allow everyone else the ability to get their cars in. A new, fuller calendar will be produced by the end of the month for 2018.

    Announcing a couple things for the series.
    1) 2018 season is a go. 7 races planned, 6 points events, and an big exhibition event run with FICA branding.
    2) Rolex is the series title sponsor. This is not going to affect the number plates for next year. For those that have already submitted their cars, you won't have to readjust them.

    As for that big exhibition...beginning in 2018, we will be hosting the 24 Hours of Le Mans. LMP1, LMP2, and GT3 will be present in our rendition. Once I figure out what the track in game can hold, I'll layout class field numbers I'm aiming for. Since it is an exhibition and since the championship itself is GT3 only for 2018, teams can run LMP1 or LMP2 instead of GT3. Teams could also run in any combination of the three they so choose. Chassis list for LMP1 and LMP2 are yet to be determined.

    Where are the various source files? I figure if I start work on the car now it should be done by 2018. :p

    Originally posted on Racing.com

    Phantom Motors CEO Jean-Claude Gabriel has confirmed rumors that Valvoline will be the primary sponsor for the team's VRR Rolex GT Endurance Championship challenger, as well as solidifying testing programs and an expansion of the team on account of it's new VRR Toshiba Indy Indy Lights team.

    "My family have had a relationship with Ashland Inc. for some time, going so far as a small personal sponsorship with the company when I was racing in professional shifter-karts. Having Valvoline on the flanks of our #99 Porsche is quite a feeling and certainly something I would like to see turn into a long-term relationship."

    No livery has been officially unveiled as of yet, but Gabriel admits that it's "90-95% complete", adding "We would've been able to make an unveiling in time for the start of the season, but with the series being pushed back to next year we've kind of left it on the back-burner in lieu of testing and getting the Indy Lights team together."

    Asked about whether or not co-driver Andrew Draco is still involved in the program following his success in the VRR Straight Talk Indycar series with the Ferrari-powered Black Rose Racing Team, Gabriel replied "As far as I'm aware of, Andrew is still committed to driving for us for next year. It's kind of funny, actually, because if the Rolex GT Endurance series was going ahead in 2017 Draco might've had to pull some crazy hours and break up a few logistical log-jams to race with us. Then again, I'm happy he's doing well enough to get the added exposure and sponsor commitments."

    Gabriel was coy about the possibility of Phantom Motors switching makes following 2018, offering "We're committed to Porsche for the time being. The only way I would break our relationship would be if someone like, say, Alpine came along and offered us an Indycar program in exchange for brand exclusivity across various racing series."

    I'm sure people caught what I said earlier, however, our car for the 2018 VRR Rolex Endurance Series has been named finally: the Nissan GTR GT3. We'll have a mockup livery coming within a few weeks, with the final livery coming, probably late 2017.



    And that's it! We're done here! Go enjoy yourselves!




    WHEW, a trek across 3 different threads, 3 different series's to reveal 4 cars in total. That took a while lol

    @Eva I have two questions.

    1: What does the bold print on that list mean?

    2: Would it be too late to enter a 997?

    1) Bold print is supposed to be all the cars I have currently, but I missed some.
    2) I'd hold off on confirming cars until Wednesday's announcement.

    Need to wait for the Mustang which I hear from my designer @RACECAR that getting them is a real pain.

    We have the Corvette but I want to reveal them all at once :)
