    I am fine with a classic cars racing series.

    If it is ok for everyone we can confirm this as B- Class series pre '65.

    Someone wanted to see the Lotus Cortina in the forthcoming series. The Cortina was released in 1966, so we should say pre/inclusive '66 cars.

    Pre '66 B class.

    Like the sounds of that Very Happy

    Quick question though, be it region/country specific?

    Thanks for posting the list Blue. The fact that there are so many cars to choose from will make for some really great racing I reckon.

    I think if we're all in agreement on a pre-'66 B class series, then I'll start drawing up the information thread and what not.

    Some input would be fantastic, so I'll ask a few questions.

    Track type/length?
    Laps?
    Pits?
    Heats?
    No. of races?
    Same points system as before?

    Any other suggestions you may have will be great too!

    And here's a little something, just to let you know I'm already prepared for this.



    Still playing with the tune, but it feels pretty solid around Suzuka at the moment Smile

    - Anthony.

    Until now I've tested 4 different cars, all are similar fast within half a second at Mugello. But my fvourite is a car I never would have bought and driven.

    What about 8 events (2 races each event as before), points, rules and race length as in the SEAT series? I don't mind about the tracks, but please not those totally narrow ones, American cars are long and broad... Laughing

    I get the feeling you're driving the Lincoln Continental... Razz

    Nah, I'll test it too, but the Pontiac GTO '65 is easy and fun to drive. Razz

    Maybe we could pick a test track to gauge how well our tunes are working?

    I think I'm going to need some help on this one!!! Laughing

    If you need help let me or Anthony or fraser ( I guess he can do good tunes too) know.

    By the way I won't advice the Lincoln Laughing It is 10 mph faster on the straights but in the end 5 secs off the pace in comparison to the other cars I've tested.

    I'm settled on the E-type, light, nimble, sounds good and is such fun to drive Very Happy

    But yes, if you want assistance, just ask.

    I did my testing on Suzuka, but can't remember the time I set. Figured it's a nice technical, but still quick track. Either that or Catalunya since its built for testing Razz

    I've tested (as always) at Mugello

    Lotus Cortina 2:11:8
    Pontiac GTO 2:12:0
    Austin Healey Mk3000 2:12:2
    Porsche 550 Spyder 2:12:5 or 6
    and the Lincoln Continental 2:16:xxx

    all these tunes are "raw tunes" what means that the aero parts, breaking power, gearbox and tire pressure are not fine adjusted.

    Managed a 2:13 dead in the E-Type, I can go faster though if I could just get the curbs right at Mugello. Definitely another second or two to be had if I can hook up a really good lap.

    Noooo, all I did was slap the decals on, they are from the Seat Leon Supercup car that Antt made up!

    I am back, could not enter the forum for 2 days.
    Anthony, your Jag seems to be off the pace compared with fraser's Stradale or my half tuned Pontiac GTO.
    It was fun to test the cars after the race. we should do this one evening more.

    I think I'll be behind the wheel of an MGB for the classic series. Always had a fondness for these motors since a kid. I've no idea as whether it's capable of half decent lap times or not, and in all honesty I don't plan on trying to tune it for any particular tracks (haven't the know-how or the time at the moment). I've downloaded a couple of storefont tunes and will give those a go. I'll try and come up with a suitable simple design for it using a combination of the vinyls from Ant's Seat and others I've previously created. Looking forward to this series - I'm sure the line-up will look spectacular (gotta love the classics!), and even if I'm well off the pace (as is often the case!) I'll have a heap of fun trundling around and admiring everyone's cars.

    Any thoughts on a new race series for 2013? I fancy something that doesn't need much tuning....

    Or we could always do a new Leon series... Wink

    I would go for that as the Leon races where always very exciting, I have to admit I kind of lost my spark racing the classics, I tried to like them but it's not happening, sorry.
    I would be up for a new race series if there is enough interest.

    So many great games not enough time. Very Happy
