    Thanks for the nod, Michael. Although my work schedule will not allow Wednesday night racing, I wish you all the best!

    Most of these races are fortnightly, so if something changes at work, jump in and have some fun! I'm looking forward to the 2.4 hours at Le Mans in both the GT3 and LMP2.

  5. Hey! this looks pretty fun. As I said for the classic f1, not sure how many I can make, but I would love to be a part when possible.
    Nic Worsfold/ EpilepticToast/ I think I'll try the Ginetta gt3 to change it up :) livery tba

    Would the new Aston GTE be available for selection? if so, I'll go with that instead, even if I haven't tried it yet haha.

    Nic, I don't know if the GTE cars will be able to run with the GT3 cars. We were going to run the GT3 cars so there are more choices of Manufacturers. You are certainly welcome to run a Aston GT3. If the GTE is compatible with other GT3 cars then by all means! I'll put you on the list though! :thumbsup:

    EDIT:
    Good news, Nic, I just downloaded the new expansion pack and yes it looks like the GTE would be fine to run in this series. We just need to make sure there isn't a huge performance gap between the GTE version and GT3.

  9. They've been sorted into the gt3 class and from the testing I've done they don't seem to have any unfair advantage, not much to split lap times. I understand if you'd rather not include them though.

    Just take a nap and you'll be fresh to go. I'm going to be pretty tired and un-able to focus by 9pm EST. I didn't mean to exclude the European guys, just no-one could agree to a time on the weekends and I didn't want to interfere with any other leagues for Xbox1.

    Peter, when you get a chance can you Twitch some laps on the new tracks.. They have a High Banked oval now! :thumbsup: I may add one of those Configurations to the schedule if it's feasible.

  14. New tracks? Is there a new track pack released today or did I miss something previously?

    yeah I missed it too.. came out late last night or this morning. I bought it before I went to work and looked at the new Aston GTE car. There is a new track that I didn't even get a good look at. I saw a brief video on youtube for the Coyote Ridge configuration. It looks like mostly a test track but it has A REALLY HIGH banked oval. I want to take the fastest car on the game out and drive it! $5 USD

    Yep just found out no Pits... so this is strickly a test track! :(

  19. bit annoyed with pcars track dlc, they have great tracks in the game and was hoping post game they would just keep adding, I would be willing to pay for track dlc if they were some good tracks
     
  20. I'm sure there's more to come. They've had to be a bit circumspect with the DLC up to now due to needing to get the actual game to a fuly workable state and now thats done they can start concentrating on improvements whihc will include more DLC :thumbsup:
