    Just wanted to gauge interest in a V8 Supercars league? Think it would be good, and think the cars present a challenge that everybody would enjoy/some would excel at.

    Would possibly look into prize money etc nearer the time also.

    would like to get a constructor championship going, and possibly after a shakedown event or two, good teams could be made.

    normal rules would apply, and assists would be pretty much what is allowed now (choice of gear change, racing/brake line).
    I would look into damage if there was interest..

    Please note that I wouldn't be planning on doing any events until one or two series currently taking place come to an end. Simply seeing if there is an interest before i plan anything more.

    Hope some guys are interested and let me know, see the racing on the TV and find they have some great racing and if we could emulate some of that it would be great :)

    Its very good racing from the guys on rfactor who run these cars too granted its a much larger field but i think if we get some of the top guys to look at a standardised setup for the league that could be intresting!! Obviously they need to be very similar too eachother but i think that could help create good racing!!

    Yeah, I was hoping maybe something similar to the CWS could be implemented here, but that could take away from getting setup for a track.. All questions for later though I guess..

    It (the car or the tune) may not have met the conditions of the race as set by the host.

    It all depends on the game setup. When you host an online lobby you can specify all sorts of criteria such as only allowing stock cars or disallowing setups to much more specific things like allowing up to a specific max HP or minimum weight. If your tune contravened any of those types of restrictions it just won't appear as available to choose.

    Yeah may as well give it a go. The Clios bring there own challenge in the fact that they are quite slidy, but rewarding when you get to grips with the car.
