PostSubject: what is everyone on about running next season?   Wed Oct 10, 2012 7:57 am

I cannot make my mind up on which car to run for season 9, all I know is that I am going to run either GT or GT2 (if they still be allowed in season 9)

which i am thinking of the the following

GT
Weismann GT MF5 10 - the old version is much faster than the new version
Mercedes Benz SLS GT3
McLaren MP4-12C GT3
BMW M3 GT2 -
Maserati MC12
Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SV
Nissan GTR V-Spec (not going to run now)

GT2
Gumpert Apollo
Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster -
Ferrari 599 XX - (not going to run now)
Pagani Huayra -
not sure what to drive all i know is that I want something easy to drive, not too hard to setup, unusual, a decent sound and a decent pace (does not have to be rapid) so as long as it is relatively competitive i will be happy

what is everyone else considering right now if the current car rules and list stands?

I would stick with GTC but i have been in GTC for two seasons now and think I need a change and plus never raced with R3 class cars (except the endurance race I did with Blackhawk and toxic) so it should help to improve my racing skills (in theory) and I need to get better at tuning cars cannot do it to save my life

Running an R3 dedicated racecar will help because the down force is greater. The series needs to change it up abit to bring in fresh drivers and speeds. The new rules if there are any, should include high horse power high grip cars.I plan on driving anything that has tons of hp/grip. Endurence races with a car that is limited in anyway becomes a de-motivator. As a suggestion, we should run heats; first heat shorter than the second with reverse grid order. Just a suggestion.

I've been heavily thinking about making a return to GT next season. However, my car of choice remains unclear. I will say that whatever I chose to race will be a Lamborghini for affinity reasons and the fact that I have a love for their madness, even if they're owned by Audi.

I have narrowed mine down now to the Ferrari 458 race version, McLaren F1 (long tail version most likely) and the Lamborghini Mucielageo LP670-4 SV

I remember you saying its a good car, and as much as i like it, it just doesnt match well with my driving style. Youll see me in a mid/rear engine car next season.
