You could say I was, ahem, shockingly excited!

Sorry.

Makes sense; if this takes off I'm sure there's numerous unique things we can do for future seasons, given how different GT's car/track list is to Forza's.

Haven't driven the cars yet but I do like the look of that Honda.

Fair enough, I think you're right actually. It'd be nice to have a serious season on this with some simple racing to see how things go before being a bit more experimental.

I'd still say two races though - perhaps qualifying, a 15-20 minute sprint race and then a 25-30 minute feature race with one mandatory stop. They're not quick cars and driving much more than half an hour on a circuit will get very boring, especially if you're on your own.

I'd definitely be taking the Honda. I like my cars to have real gears ;)

Think you're right about the format.
Can still play with the day/night too.
Some go 8am to 7pm, some go 24hr.

The calender is likely to be real world circuits, dependant on which GT ones have day night.
I know Apricot Hill runs 24hrs ;)

Some of those don't have full night time. We only need one or two night races and maybe a wet race, that and tracks which actually suit the cars.

I think one of those was an unofficial season or something along those lines.

GTTCC had nothing to do with Rlyr, it was a F1Fanatic thing

Is this officially RlyR? Because if it is, wouldn't that actually make it GT-1?

Well Cafe wasnt.offical, but was sanctioned by Rlyr so technically is a second season.

As Kart was offical im assuming this will be, unless Alex says Otherwise?

I can't wait to get this underway, seen a sneak of the calender!
I just love Laguna Seca, suzuka, LeMans, Silverstone, all the motegi versions and the Nurburgring
