    Alrightio guys, took me far too long, BUT finally finalized the Balance of Performance of the 3 cars, as well as the Track List which has had 1 minor change :) Looking forward to it!
    Also because im lazy, still yet to do the Le Mans specific BOP of the cars, however will try and do this tommorow :)

    I doubt it will be added before this starts. That and we already have 16 cars, so it would need a second server.

    Id love to add it in but sadly it wasnt here during testingand well, chances are it wont be here when this is series finishes. I'd love to host a event which has run before at rooz, a 2.4hrs of Le Mans, and if the Nissan is here when i hopefully get that event running, then by all means it will be on the grid :)

    Yeah I was thinking of making it, but maybe 3 or 4 hours and encourage people to use co drivers, so then you can fill all the Classes without making the grid feel small.

    That is the layout they use to test for Lemans since Lemans is a public road and they can't drive on it till the race is on.

    Either way I prefer the no chicanes layout.

    I dont mind making the change... HOWEVER the field may become even more spread out. The Audi is the fastest down the straights but struggles under brakes, even with the chicane the Audi is the quickest by 3 tenths... I averaged the times from all cars over all tracks and got them within 2 tenths overall, but the Audi is the fastest down the straights so thats why im reluctant to give it even more room to stretch its legs...

    Woo hoo! Can't wait for this tomorrow :)
    So I will be trying a Manual Rolling Start at Monza, and if all goes well, we will use this in future rounds :)
    So when the lights go out at Monza, simply drive around the track single file staying in grid position, the pole sitter can control the pace, but don't go too fast, or too slow please :) As we exit the final corner, we will become double file with all drivers who qualified in a even numbered position on the left ( Grid positions 2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16 ) and all the drivers who qualified in a position with an odd number on the right ( Pole,3,5,7,9,11,13,15 ). The pole sitter is now in control of when the race starts. Once all cars look to be double file correctly, the pole sitter may accelerate at any time and the race will be green flagged. Once the pole sitter has taken off, overtaking is allowed :)
    Qualifying will be a 1 shot qualifier, so you will get just 1 flying lap to get up the grid order :)
    Teams will go out one by one on my call. The order for Monza will simply go in Alphabetical order, but for the other rounds it will be based off constructor standings :) So the First team to set a lap will be the mighty Audi's, Then the 3 Bentleys and then the Mazda's. Once all 9 cars have completed there laps, then the Peugeot's will be unleashed, followed by the Toyota Hybrids. This is a high speed circuit so teams can use slipstreaming off eachother to great effect.
    Hoping we have awesome attendance tomorrow, and hopefully we get some awesome high speed racing!!
    Good luck everyone :thumbsup:
