There is the Event details. Granted a bit more than normal there but I just copied that was written on the server setup screen :D

If there is anything you are unsure of please ask. I'll clarify anything you want needed.

This event will be pretty even I'm guessins. I had mixed results with the cars in testing today. There were some interesting surprises... Especially in the wet test. All cars were within .5 of a second in the dry and even closer in the wet over a 5 lap time trial. I know what car I'll be turning up in, do you?

Disclaimer: All cars were trialled at 620pp (617 for the Mitsubishi with oil change) to hit these numbers with the BMW its a oil change. with the Mercedes I tried both extra weight and less power. No real differences there to be honest. Both variants were within .050 of each other over the 5 laps. the less power was slightly faster than the extra weight.

I'm uploading some more pics to my mediafire account tonight so I'll add a pic for this thread as well :D

All VGT cars will be eligible. Im doing performance testing today. Dont know why I said Id update the post tonight. Update within 24 hours more likely. BMW VGT is more restricted than the other 2 currently released VGT cars. So Ill work on them all to bring them in line.

No worries Rui. Ive been sick as for the last few days and anything gets on my nerves atm. So its yet to be held.

With the inclusion of the VW VGT in the 1.09 update the PP value above will change. This event will not be the week after the stated day. Same time. I know what car Im using now :)

Also a side note. The next club event after this one you will need $2million. As itll be using the Audi R18 TDI and the new Toyota TS-030. You have been warned (this is also something Im thinking about for a league here at RD).

Sure. Just ask before creating.

But from what Im seeing GT6 here is dying. Club Events have struggled to get more than 5 people turning up.

Also Ill look at re hashing the RX-7TC and Cape Ring combo in the very near future.

Alright guys. Since the attendance will only be 2 drivers Im cancelling this event. Andrew can run his LCC Rocket race next week. If attendance is up then the TS030 v R18 TDI will go ahead the week after. So yeah.

I will definitely be there for the LM race if organised. I hope there will be enough participants and we can organise an endurance in Le Mans like we did at Bathurst, which was simply awesome! :inlove:
