    OK time for a mini tournament.
    Its going to be in 2 parts, The 1st part this week and the 2nd next week.

    The theme for this is Touring Cars World Tour.

    Cars that are allowed are the following:

    Lexus IS F Racing Concept '08
    Audi A4 Touring Car '04
    ABT Audi TT-R Touring Car '02
    Audi R8 LMS Race Car '09
    Audi R8 LMS Race Car (Team Playstation) '09
    Mercedes CLK Touring Car '00
    Vauxhall Astra Super Touring Car '00
    Opel Astra Touring Car '00
    (These are also allowed but have about 50-60pp less than the others)
    Alfa 155 2.5 V6 TI '93
    Mercedes 190E 2.5-16 Evolution II Touring Car '92
    Vauxhall Calibra Super Touring Car '94
    Opel Calibra Touring Car '94

    ONE IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IS ALL OF THE CARS ARE STANDARD MODELS EXCEPT FOR THE LEXUS, SO THE ONLY ONE YOU CAN GET FROM A DEALERSHIP IS THE LEXUS THE OTHERS HAVE TO BE GOT FROM THE SECONDHAND DEALER OR THE OCD.


    There will be a PP limit of 620 and tyres are going to be restricted to Racing Hard.

    Each Race will be 5 laps in length and will be run on a track that exists in real life.

    The first weeks tracks will be as follows.
    Indy Road Course
    Daytona SS
    Monza
    Tsukuba
    Laguna Seca
    Sarthe 2009

    The following week will be run on.
    Nurburgring GP/F
    Fuji Speedway GT
    Suzuka
    Indy SS
    Daytona Road Course
    TGTT

    Please note that 9:30 is the START TIME of the first race and it will be on time this week :D I shall open the lobby by 9:00 pm

    What about sharing one online, then whoever hasn't got one can borrow it from you.

    Hope that helps

    Last time we tried sharing a car it was not allowed to be used online so I'm guessing it won't work this time either. Ace, I thought you had the Lexus or did the mad Dutchman hang on to it?

    Why not do a couple of seasonal events to get your eye in and earn a wedge?

    If all else fails, I have a prepped Lexus that I can gift Ace on the night.

    Correct. You can only use borrowed cars in single player. I thought I returned the Lexus, but I'll have to check. Perhaps I returned it to the wrong PeaCock :shock:

    i got the lexus back Mr Spruijt, you could have kept it as I have two. I'll do a couple of races to get some Do$h and get the Audi and see if I like it better than the Lexus.

    You sound a bit of a hardcore racer jonny what with car setups.
    My setup is plumping the cushions up and making sure I have a glass of water within reach.
