Post Lets race!

I know most of you are tied up in GTA, but I need some real racing here! 8O

Anyone interested in a race night? My immediate suggestions are Gran Turismo 6 (PS3) or NFS:Rivals (PS4) until the wave of PS4 race titles hit in April.

I'd be happy to set up GT6 races... lower level cars with moderate PP to start until everyone's had some opportunity to gain some cash. 8-)

Bueller? Bueller?

Cool... unless the masses demand otherwise, I'll plan on GT6. How's Thursday night? Say 8pm EST? I'll post a race list up within the next day or so.

Temporary race list... May get tweaked slightly... No nitrous, normal cars only for now. My goal is to get some fairly quick races in and making sure the dude with the most money to throw at a car isn't automatically the winner... most cars are from the first few career races for now.

Race # - Track - Laps - PP limit - Tire Limit - Special requirements:
1 - Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit - 3 - 450 PP - SH
2 - Circuit de Roma - 3 - 530 PP - SH - 1979 or earlier
3 - Circuit de Spa Francorchamps - 2 - 500 PP - RS - European models only
Bonus race if anyone still wants to go - "Fat Ladies" - Station Wagons only, 500 PP limit, RS tires, 4 laps on some ridiculously short and tight track that I'll figure out later.

Fine with me. We can do one-makes later depending on interest. I have a whole scoring method as well, but we'll just leave it be for now. We'll just call this one "unofficial" so we don't have to worry about points yet... if it's more than just us two, I'll post up scoring and rules for next week and we can make it a league race.

sounds like a plan, but there are others that wish it not to be on Thursday's, since they do League of Legends on Thursdays...let's keep it this way for a bit right now...

Doesn't bother me... I'm fine any night except Tuesday as long as I have enough of a heads up.

"Others" should post up and state their preferences. :P

Since it appears to be just us for now,there's not much point in running it without you. I think I'm available Saturday. Let's shoot for the same time and I'll revise if necessary.

That was good fun. Sorry for the rude cut-off at the end, I forgot that chat was dependent on the host.

Brands Hatch - 1 lardteamaker, 2 smthng, 3 timdog
Circuit de Roma - 1 smthng, 2 timdog, 3 lardteamaker
Spa Francorchamps - 1 lardteamaker, 2 smthng, 3 timdog

Extra races:
Xbows on Deep Forest - 1 smthng, 2 lardteamaker, 3 timdog
Nismo GTRs on Tokyo 246 - 1 lardteamaker, 2 smthng, 3 timdog

By normal math, that shows lardteamaker with the most wins... but any track official worth his salt would have ejected him from Spa Francorchamps, so that one is debateable. :P Regardless, it was great fun and on most of the tracks, we were all within 2 seconds of each other at the finish.

If there's more interest, we'll keep this going on Saturdays. I'll make up a point system for next week and extend it to 5 races.

It was actually 8 PM EST, but I'm usually fairly flexible.

Unfortunately, I'm headed out of the country for a couple weeks, so I'm out for a bit. Y'all are welcome to set up some while I'm gone. I'll be back February 8th.
