      Haven't even set foot yet in the 908, so this would be a good reason.

      The 908 used to have a severe disadvantage in fuel usage, but that was finally adjusted in the last update, will be interesting to see how it matches up now for potential enduro events.

      We’ll all be short on practice due to the late announcement, but don’t let that dissuade anyone, c’mon out and have some fun!

      Interesting! Haven't raced online for a year... Maybe this should be promoted on the front page?

      You will need all the cars to join the server. They will all need short gearing too.

      FWIW, the 330 is treating me the best so far.

      I'm going to race this Ferrari, which makes sense to me more than the rest.

      The 908 is ok too, the Ford much smoother than I expected (I suspect those who like the C6 would like the Ford). Didn't spend much time in the Jag, but it screams. Doesn't suit me though I don't think.

      Sadly I will not be able to race because is my sonīs birthday and I will be out of my house, but I did test the cars, all 4, and the 330 felt like it belongs to other ballpark, I found almost 3 seconds faster than Porsche and Ford, and the Jaguar a bit slower than that two
      PD: 1.33, 8 my best

      I'll try to be there - as Captain Slow: I have no experience with hist cars and hasn't raced for a year... The 330 is my weapon of choice.

      If my calculations are correct race start is 7 pm CET?

      Yep, that's what my converter says. 11 AM for me.

      I'm well off Hernan's pace, btw @ 1:34.7 (best and on low fuel). But it's fun.

      I will try to make it tomorrow.
      330 is way way faster than the rest. Anyone not using it for the race?
