Definitely in! I'm not sure about cars yet though ... I'll do some testing :) Track should be with pits imo, it would be sad to crash at the beginning and not be able to repair the car ...

Yeah, we can discuss settings on damage or mechanical failures once we've settled on a track.
First, think about the racing only!

@King-kodiak this special might be as close to wacky races as currently doable.
Wanna join? bring some friends :)

Maybe bit of an extreme idea.

3 races on the Combined track, 3 laps.
Race 1: with 60's cars (with qualifying).
Race 2: 70's cars, reversed grid.
Race 3: 80's cars, reversed grid of race 2 results.

With this setup you might have more battles. Probably not going to be many sign-ups, so atleast you have some battles with those short reversed grid races.

Fun idea! I think with few signups the Müllenbach would be the most fun though

Alright, we will be running Nürburgring Combined, with Group A and Group C cars. This will be fun :)

Request: let's get a diverse grid!

Should we do a 1 or 2 hour race? (or 1.5h)

Any preferences for time of day? Note: it will be wet.

2 hours, is it full wet? 'Rain' setting?
It's snow, which will behave like rain once it hits the ground, as we don't set the season to snow :)
(we can go blizzard too!) but i'd do a full-wet race, to ease strategies and reduce accidents due to partially wet/dry track.

So god damn rattled that my pedals broke and I am aswell :(
Love the Group C class to death and would've been very fun to take one for a spin around Nords in the wet. Oh well, I'll hop on the next Group C race I guess (if we'll ever have one again) ;)

So that does make it a VLN race:unsure:.
I prefer 1.5h and maybe same start time as the lobby, so race starts at 8PM? (Who doesn't like a snowy nurburgring in the dark)

In with Group C then.

1,5h seems like a good compromise between those who prefer either 1 or 2h.
