I would like a bit of feedback from as many people as possible.

Would like to know what sort of events you would like to see in the future, can be any idea you like. I just trying to have a idea of where to head with the Saturday nights racing by what you would all like to do.

I personally like single make/model unmodified races so no-one has an advantage due to a better car/setup.
Im not going to use the Track Generator again, although it was worth a try the tracks were a bit crap.

Single make, weather modified or not as long as they are set-up to the same PP is always fun and close. Technical set-up variations don't make a huge difference really (unless you run out of gears!) and sometimes different routes to the same PP (especially if cars are restricted using the engine power limiter) can produce interesting strengths and weaknesses during a lap. Either way I'm easily pleased!

Would quite like to be brave and go for a long race one night, maybe 25-30 laps somewhere!

We've not done any rally/snow yet either....

Some dirt rallying and I like all cars stock or similar pp with or without power limiter. Maybe only 6 cars to choose from all with the same specs and pp.

I quite like having a fixed PP and being able to choose the car you want to race and modify it. It gives me a chance to actually win something (though I still rarely do).

I don't mind having races using the same car and unmodified too, as long as it doesn't mean an end to "pick 'n' choose & modify' races"

Beyond that, I'm pretty much up for anything!

Shuffle is always good, everyone gets similar cars then it's all about the skill

Endurance race or GP distance races. With qualifying before hand.

Does that mean you'll be joining us on a Saturday night then? I don't think I've played with you yet on GT5. :)

I think some snow and dirt tracks will be a nice variation.

Also everyone having all the same car but being able to modify it.

Perhaps we could have one race with restricted PP and any car, one race with the same car with mods allowed and one race with the same car and no modifications allowed.

Maybe, I tend to be racing my American friends at 1am usually on Saturday nights. They have 2 hour long races and good fun. Sunday I'm racing sometimes with the OAPs. And if I have a gig or RL Motorsport on then I'm not on at all.

Plus I get accused for lagging when I played last time. And it p***ed me off a bit tbh when I can connect to America with no issues at all and to Mane's lobby.

But I now have Plusnets pro add on so I'll give it ago again.

I must admit I do like being able to tweak the vehicles but I've enjoyed each and every session we've played so far. I do wonder if our past events of having 3 car classes on 3 tracks was too much and maybe parring that down to 2 classes. When allowed to tweak though I did wonder if we should have a time limit rather than our current method of calling ready?

There is a option to auto start the next race X minutes after the last race finishes.
