I know the FWEC is only using prototypes and GT cars, but i'd like to give something a try and wanted to gauge interest here, i tried to get this as the community race over at tora but they said it wasnt feasible...but i think some people here might be more open to something like this.

while watching the 1000KM of suzuka, i was inspired to give some of the super GT cars a try and i'd like to get something organized here in the same style of FWEC...but using cars that have not been used before.

event would be 6 hours long. so only 3 stints. this could be made longer if necessary.

GT500 would be the hyundai, GTR, Lexus, Merc and Audi DTM cars. not upgraded very much. i'd like to keep them not that much faster than the GT300 cars

GT300 could be the GTC or GTE class from FLMS with maybe some other fun things thrown in there in order to represent the looseness of the super GT rulebook.

track would definitely be suzuka.

It's usually around a 6 hour race at Suzuka, would be keen to race a GTR GT500.

I really hope some SuperGT teams run cars in DTM next year. Would love to see them at Brands Hatch :)

We're fans of multi class racing here at the FLMS, that's for sure. I know Ricky wants to do this too, so maybe we can get something organised with FLMS backing to some degree!

3x 2 hour stints with 2 drivers per car? Go with GT500 and GT300 (GTC + the 2 GT300s in game) and it'd be fun.

chelsea blu UK messaged me on xbox about this, He's eager to take part as well :) . (He hasn't got a laptop at the moment, So can't post on the forums)

Second that Mitch, I actually said the exact same to Hamilton on xbox in regards to the GT300 class lol.

Should also add the Audi A4 and Mercedes DTM cars to GT500 as well :) .

Could run four 90 minute stints? That way both drivers get to run 2 stints.

The FLMS GTC cars only need 3 lobby groups, So you could open the fourth for GT500 and allow them to run without power restrictions :P (If they don't need lobby groups for balancing)

What about the Subaru, And Nissan GT300 cars? I know their old, But they would still be good to have on the grid if they can be balanced with the other GTC cars.

Just use the Subie GT300 as a stand in for the Berz and the Dato could wear the GTR team liveries?
