We don't get to visit France for F1 nowadays, but historically the French Grand Prix was often held around the first weekend of July. On this weekend in history at the Paul Ricard circuit, Niki Lauda took the win in 1975, and James Hunt returned the favour exactly one year later during their famous rivalry. In 1988, the year we will recreate in this event, Alain Prost took victory over Ayrton Senna.

Track:
Paul Ricard Historic 1988 Download

Practice: 18:00 GMT
Quali: 18:15 GMT (15 minutes)
Warm-up: 18:30 (5 minutes)
Race: 18:35 GMT approx - 80 Laps (approx 1h 40 mins) - 1 Pit Stop Mandatory to change all 4 tyres. See Special Notes below!!

Tyre Wear & Fuel Consumption: Normal
Time Scale: x1
Start: Standing

Special Notes
You'll need to pit for a change of all 4 tyres during the race. The pit entry can be difficult, so be very careful. Keep to the right when coming out of the final turn to avoid incidents. You are unable to refuel during the race, so make sure you've got enough fuel on board before the race begins. On average during a small practice, I used 1.7L per lap; which would work out at a minimum 136L for 80 laps - you should check your own fuel consumption!

Yes please! I'll be in one of the Scuderia Maranello cars. Hope we don't see an overload of the McLaren skins. :thumbsup:

I will do everything to be home at the time for the race start (sure not for qualy, but it is long race, so it doesn˙t really matters), so sign me up, please.

Enzo, one McLaren here just because #11 on it, no other reason :)

As I can see, there will be really a lot of McLarens, so I decided to drive white #33. Even 11 is my race number from real life, 33 is also nice :)

Hey @Nox . I can't seem to load this track, get stuck at the loading screen and pressing ESC just exits the game. All other tracks in my SCE load just fine. Any idea?
