So which track is "Suzuka 280km"? I don't see one with that length.

Never mind. I'm a little slow today. That would really be an endurance race if the track were 280km.

Thanks, Wagg. You certainly had the faster car, though.

 

Official word on the penalty thing; I think eci and Ken are right. One car per segment race is simpler and fair. So the new rule will be...

 

  • You can only use a particular car once per segment. Using a car twice in one segment will result in half points for that race.
  • Exception is Endurance Specials. Car choice is free for those races. Use your favorite!

This will take effect at the start of Segment 2


Sounds good, jet.  If you don't mind, I have one more question.   You said we have to use a different car for each race in a segment.  What defines a "different" car.  In other words, could I use 4 different Super GT NSX's?  Just want to make sure I don't mess up.  :-)

Yes, all of the liveries of the Super GT NSX (Including the Stealth version) will be counted as the same car. Same thing for earlier year models.

 

Basically, if the car's main name is different, then it is different. Cars of different years or different paints will count as the same car.

I guess I don't understand why we have to use different cars. What happened to the old system were using one car was encouraged. One thing that made this series awesome was racing against people and their one car. It felt more "real" where you couldn't change your car for certain tracks to gain an advantage. I understand where some of you guys are coming from and I respect your ideas but if you want to see more cars used why not allow people free changes or 1 free change per segment.

I'm fine with it either way.  If I was running LMP, I would probably prefer to use the same car every race.  I've grown to love my R8 :-)  However, since I'm running GT, I don't mind the idea of switching cars every race.  There are so many race cars that I've never used, so it will be nice to get a chance to mess with some of those.

So how about LMP is one car, and GT you have to change cars?

I am in favor of using one car for LMP. I certainly don't have the time to learn another car's nuances for each race.

Just an update guys. The forecast is saying 30% chance of rain for Suzuka this Sunday. Remember, we are basing the race weather on the real-life weather at the track. (To be exact, the weather at noon at the track's time zone)
