I cut up the schedule into what I think we are all (potentially) interested in. Looking at it, I agree with M3 in the other thread,  50 and 80 min races seem long compared to the 45 mins GT challenge ones. But I like the tracks for the Grand Am a bit better (Atlanta!)

So I assume we will run the mcLaren then, we decided that right?  I like a lot of the cars :)

If that's the case I say we go with the GT challenge tracks.  I just want to able to run something in our series that is the sAme as official so I can run one of those each week.  I think that's what we are going for.

Oh yeah and the lotus is coming out ::)

I think we all agree on matching the official track schedule.

It certainly seemed liked everyone was for the Mclaren but I'll reopen the poll and we can vote.

I just ran a few GT Challenge practice sessions. Road Atlanta with 30+ cars is crowded. I got run over a bunch of times being off the pace. That was was pretty rough... that would be a very hard series for me to run.

For that kind of traffic I think 3-screens is almost mandatory. Got to get mine setup...

Most of the GTC practice rooms are packed. Clip and I were in a room where 70 racers had come through!!

I think as they move the GTC to racing everyday, it should thin out a little bit. Not that they will lose racers, but there will be more times to race.

Considering the popularity of the MP4, I am really surprised  that they did not decide to run it on it's own.

I think they are focusing on more multiclass racing so they don't dilute the races as they add more cars.  Field size is actually determined by class. In the Skip there are usually just as many racers at any given time, but they have smaller field sizes so they have splits
