Ok everyone here are the cars we are looking to run.

Class 1
'54 Mercedes - SSRT DWilkerson
'56 Jag D-type
'57 Ferrari TR
'58 Aston DBR-1
'60 Corvette C1 - OutrunNascaR14

Class 2
'61 Jag E-Type
'64 Aston DB5 - xman4299
'64 Ferrari GTO - DesertDuck 89
'65 Shelby Daytona - ranzeroxklaus

Class 3
'66 Ford GT40 - PSEUDO 45
'67 Ferrari 330 P4 - Sniper919

To anyone just open to test let me know what remaining car you want/have to use. Remember this is just a test. The cars must be stock at this point. And the only driving assist allowed will be the racing line. It will help for more accurate data. If you feel confident without it don't use it but I'd suggest it. These cars dont stop on a dime, they stop on a man-hole cover.

Ill be looking forward to hearing from you guys filling up the field.


You are now allowed to use a tranny that allows you to tweak gear ratio's. As of now that is the only upgrade. Im also considering removing chrome bumpers like on the vet or jag.

Put me down for the 300SLR. Guessing you want times for Le Mans?

Edit: Stock gearing tops out at 135mph. May want to think about letting sport tranny in?

The most important question: are we allowed to make era themed liveries?

Im glad you brought that up. Yes ERA THEMED LIVERIES. My vision is to have a series that would look straight from the 50s,60s, and 70s. If you do your research most cars of this era don't have many, if any logos at all. Most had circle numbers white and black thats it.

Now that doesn't mean thats all you could have. Im open to you guys being creative. But be aware that all cars must go through a review process so do your research. If we post our ideas here we can share our ideas and thoughts to make this series as authentic as possible.

Im glad to see some interest. I feel like this could be a great series.

If this series gets off the ground and agrees with my schedule, I'd like to be in the Shelby Daytona

A search of the storefront will net you some decent vintage sponsor/contingency decals and a google search will help with placement.

Edited to add: Just offering up an example of a livery I have for this car, not currently planning to run it in this series.

I can likely make Thursday. And I'll run the Aston DBR1

And I'll run the number I use here, not the 73 as shown on the Daytona Coupe above.

How many folks are signed up for this that are also running in the multi-class ALMS series? Reason I ask - that series kicks off tonight.

A few of us ran some practice laps last night. Mostly in the Ferrari 330p and GT40 MKII. The Ferrari ran on average a 4.16 while the Ford ran a 4.19. Im going to try and get those time closer with some adjustments.

Anyone looking to run some testing tonight I'll be online.
