    Yeah joest racing which is made up of audi factory drivers ran the speed 8. Bentley car with audi engine (they lacked speed the previous years and always came behind the audis) and audi team to win Le Mans. But both are part of the Volkswagen group. So you could claim they done more than 10 years straight.

    Nice!!! Certainly adds to the Audi saga of domination!
    As for the series, I would personally like 15 car grids as no shows with a 10 car grid could mean 7 or so people, which wouldn't be incredibly entertaining... I think with last minute pull outs before the race, a lot of Reserves could find themselves a seat :) To go to 2 rooms I think 24 people would be needed all up, making a 12/12 split which would still be a great grid size

    Believe it or not, quite the opposite!! Couldn't get it to get near the laptimes of the Toyota which was the car these are all based off, plus its a little harder to drive so lower div drivers may have struggled. Heck even I find it a fair fight!

    Yeah it really all comes down to driving style. Heck, I love this Mazda for the main league, never want to see It go, yet all my mates want to put it in a scrapyard! R18's just very torquey and doesn't mind lighting the rear's up, so maybe that's just my problem :p

    The R18 was clearly outclassed in the 2.4 Hours of Le Mans race that @t_b_williams ran, even in 15th Anniversary trim.

    It is with regret to announce that I will be withdrawing from all events for the next two months due to work commitments overseas. It was a difficult decision for me to make. I've had some of the best racing of my life the past few months, with an amazing community behind it all.

    I hope to be back racing all of you (and some new folks) by June, on GT6 or otherwise.

    Best wishes,
    Bryan

    I initially found the same,changed my braking style and found it better. I think it's to do with the ERS charge/discharge. I found it really loose under hard braking,and then loose under throttle up to 200km/h when the ERS finishes,but as soon as you run out of electric energy it settles down a bit,but that could also be the aero kicking in properly

    With the Toyota you certainly have to change your braking style, I use a lot less brake but for a longer time, essentially coasting into the corners, plus getting on the throttle making sure I don't go past 80% throttle until the car is in a straight line, as the Hybrid only engages over 120kp/h at 80% throttle

    High chance there will be some slight power changes before this season kicks off. Also the exlusive Circut De La Sarthe power settings will be up soon too. Will get them up ASAP :)
    Hoping everyones excited for the green flag at Monza :D

    Ahh..... is that a one night series? If so ill just move it back a week. If its a few weeks series then sadly those 2 may needd to miss a few rounds as majority are still good to go. Jono/Pykey could pair up with Reserves and for eg. DekGT5 could do Monza/Laguna, then Jono takes over for the remainder, and those two have a combined total.
