    It's those 3 hour races, right? If so I'd totally be up for it. Maybe we could enter the one in Silverstone this weekend to try it out.
    (No I'm not saying that because I might have an Endurance race addiction of some sort now)

    As long as it doesn't make me take a driver slot up. im up for spotting these events.

    Also anyone running the weekly blancpain 3hr if it lets me in the spectator I will spot those events as well. just let me know in an advance.

    Yes the regular endurance schedule.

    Thinking we start with two teams ( 3 drivers per ) with a captain assigned to each one. then they will decide individually what car they run.

    Your help is much appreciated.

    Odds are that we will have more than 1 car so im probably gonna need some help. especially if they end up in different splits.

    This race was probably the most fun I've had in a racing game for quite some time, if not ever. I'll definitely be there for whatever's next, whether it's the Blancpain Series or Petit LeMans.

    Yeah I'm down to race. I don't know what my work/school schedule is going to look like, but I know for a fact I will have less time to play.

    Seems like they keep making stops at tracks I haven't got yet. Don't know if I can get it in time but I'll see about it.

    I'd be down to do Sunday at 1PM EDT with you if you want jooldst. We'll have to tune the car, and I need brands hatch still but it's easily doable.

    Most likely won't make that. That would be 5 AM for me and I have to get up at 5:30. So maybe Friday evening?

    Asked my uncle about some supension changes. Going up on the right side spring rate will help entry and exit on turns 3 and 4. If I If your still having as much problems with the oukton park set up joolsdt found but just an idea. This change might affect how the car loads up on the right hand corners though.

    Makes sense, less body roll for the rear to get sketchy and go off spinning on us.

    Just an update on today's race--

    Venom and Scud's LAN party car wound up not finishing, due to being DQ'd from incident points. We did not know this could happen, so that's fun. They started at the back of the field and drove forward to 7th.

    Joolsdt and I started 35th and drove up to a 6th place finish while playing RUF dodgeball with some sketchy Russians.

    Great racing from both teams, if we could get a setup going for Zolder we're a good underdog candidate. Personally I'd like to run as many cars as possible if anyone else wants to join in on the fun.

    I think we'll have a better chance at finding a setup for this one, because the Sprint Series is running Zolder in the same week as the Endurance Series. All in all I think we need to try to make the most out of the 2 weeks that we have to prepare at this point.
