here it is, the place for ideas thoughts comments complaints & queries of how we go racing next year
Sign me up
As a one off because I know a lot of people don’t like open wheelers I wouldn’t mind having a 1 off Renault 3.5 race
thats def a good idea for a summer race Coxy, we actually did one at the Nordscliefe at the end of RTEC last season & it was huge fun for those who apreciatte the open wheeler madness
That would have been hectic around there...I was more thinking spa or something lol.....no monza tho
as I recall, Woody ended up with the win after all ahead of him binned it
it's a great idea mate, reckon you should start a thread & get it going
how does everyone feel about the gt4 cars? there's certainly enough for that to be an option, i haven't driven them too much tho so not sure how long they'd keep my attention
i'd also like to test out the lmp3 cars, Ginetta & Ligier
also thinking it'd be good to designate a night or two each week for some prac/testing sessions
I’m keen for anything you setup..always been good in the past. As we are seeing now in the league races the slower cars produce some great racing. Never drivin a lmp car but keen for a try out whenever you are.
why dont you run mixed classes for the lower div drivers
Only problem I have with mixed classes, doesn’t matter how many sign up a third never show up. So out of 10-12 drivers 8 or 9 could be in a faster car then if your in the slower class your stuck racing almost by your self
I was stuck racing myself last season anyway because everyone had the same tune for the Ferrari lol
GT1 could be an option.
Limited for classes with a large number of cars.
Six in there from memory. Bit of iffernece in laptime between them stock, but would be interesting to see if they got closer with a bit of tuning. That said it might give the slower guys a bit more of a chance if they are allowed to pick their car first and all the other cars have to have been picked before we start doubling up??? Just throwing an Idea in the mix.
GT4's could be interesting, would they be too slow to spend 6 hours in??? Hang on, are we talking the super enduro's or RTEC???
I'm going to let V8 reveal his brainwave of an idea for next year, it's a cracker & could solve some issues
gt1 noted tho...
Id be keen on joining something over summer
The main idea Ive had for sometime now goes something like this
Teams of two (so yourself and your endurance co-driver if solo you can have someone sub in for the sprint rounds) and there would be a Teams championship and a driver's championship now that's my idea as far as the teams idea goes but as for the races I was thinking 4 endurance rounds and 5 sprint rounds but this time with a different car class for each round so for eg
SPA - GT3s
LEMANS - LMPs
BATHURST - V8 Supercars
MONZA - FORMULA A
DAYTONA - STOCKCAR
IMOLA - FERRARI CHALLENGE
OULTON PARK - GROUP A
NURBURGRING - ROAD B
FUJI - GT1
And so on obviously testing would need to be done but it would be pretty cool but some cars in some class might need a handicap in place to keep the racing close and fair for everyone so we would pretty much be rolling RTEC and the 1000km series in to one 9 mouth long series but this is just an idea at the moment but happy to hear everyones feedback
Sounds awesome. Love the idea, but only thing I find monza boring, swap over monza for spa or Dubai or anything else pretty much for the f1 race and I’m in. Failing that and you decide to keep monza than ya know I’m in anyways. Sorry seen spa was gt3... maybe silverstone ( which I hate aswell lol) or old school Nurburgring gp
It's all just an idea at this stage mate Im not a fan of Monza either just throwing ideas around
I'll be online tonight guys doing some testing if you lot are keen
GT1 data @ Le Mans (default date, 11am, clear weather, 50litres, 50% radiator)
FERRARI F50 3:40.6
MERCEDES CLK 3:40.8
NISSAN 390 3:41.1
all cars have a 100litre fuel tank and are very tweakable depending on how you like your rocket ship dialed in. the McLaren does seem to be an exception... i spent about 20-30mins on each car
is brettwant7 your psn ?
