    At the moment the R3E race club will wind up for the holidays on Sunday 20th December 2015 and resume on January 10th 2016.
    However if there's an interest I thought about a couple of special club races to take place on the two Sundays in between.
    On Sunday 27th December 2015
    Group 5 @ Spa 1 hour race with a pit stop and tyre wear.
    Sunday 3rd January 2016
    Suggestions please, possibly Audi TT if they are out, not GT3 please as we race them normally.

    Any other suggestions for festive fun this is the thread to post them in.

    Tyre wear won't make any difference to Group 5...

    So, box every 4 laps then? :roflmao:

    Just a thought, hopefully we'll have some new players that treated themselves to some R3E goodness for Xmas but they might not have a lot of content (as it takes at least a 6-week course at community college to decipher how to best use the store). So maybe using some free content might attract a few more punters? The Silhouettes at Portimao could be a fun combination, those cars are a hoot to race since the physics update.

    Just a thought. I'm still recovering from the trauma that the Group 5 cars beset upon me last week, but I may be ready to tame them again come Xmas.

    I feel the same way about Portimao as Lars does about Macau.:whistling:
    I would imagine that at Spa they will not be so intense, bit more room except through turn 1 and Eua Rouge

    Oh. I haven't driven it much but I like it. I've never had a proper online race there though so I don't know how it is in the heat of competition. I am looking forward to racing the new & improved silhouettes at some point though. :thumbsup:

    I'll probably be 50/50 on the Group 5's, I'm having a hard time enjoying the "old physics" cars now. But, my CSW arrives today so maybe that all could change.

    I know in Gran Turismo some of the kids would do a game called cats and mice where some drivers were designated as mice and had to escape/stay away from the cats, and the cats job was to stop/crash the mice. I never did it, but sounded like it could be a fun bit of hooniganism. Not sure if that's what he was talking about though.

    Cat & mouse has been done before for Xmas club races. You need a skin pack plain colours like black an white cars. It's like playing "tag" there are guys on RD that can help you if you want to set it up

    How about half the grid go one way round and the other half the other?

    Thanks Paul
    There would be the problem with R3E, but we could get around it by just using 2 contrasting liveries.:) Keep the ideas rolling in.

    Kenny true there's no real mod content with RR3 so it would be difficult to achieve.

    Yes but if we stuck to just 2 car models and went for contrasting liveries it should be doable.:)

    I'd be happy with a Spa 1 hour race using the Gp5 cars or the Daytona PT's. I would prefer the Daytona's to be honest.

    I've already pencilled this in more or less, how would the DP's compare powerwise to the Group 5's could we run them as multiclass?

    The DP's are better handling, but a mix would be interesting.
    Edit, just tried the DP's. They are way faster than the GP5's.
