I would be interested in helping out in both. It is likely that not all drivers will be able to make every race, so having a minimum of 4 in each team would be useful.

I would say for the start everyone stays at one team :)

Thx @GioVtec for the awesome livery, we will definitely have the prettiest and loudest car in the grid :D

i did some small editing to the first screenshot to make the quality of the pic a bit better so it can be also used for the newsletter or something else

I am sure I will be corrected if I get the times incorrect. Times so far for the team are between 1.31 and 1.33.1, personally, i was running 1.33's consistent with one or two laps dropping to a 1.34, I know @The Wayfaerer and @Battenberg are also consistent.

Yep, I can happily stay in the 22's with concentration, and @The Wayfaerer can dip into the 21's. We're not sure what the pace of the rest of the GT field is, but judging from the few we've seen online, we're probably mid/back of the pack.

The car feels fine over a fuel stint, I don't think there's anything major left to tweak in the setup. I even double stinted a set of hards and had no problems with pace or grip towards the end. So it's possible if we need to do so.

A fuel tank lasts for 40/41 laps, which should be just about an hour. The idea at the moment is to have the qualifier start the race for 1 stint, next driver does 1 stint, and third driver does a double to the end.

Next we need to do some running in the wet to see what we'll need to change (just in case), and have more practice in traffic.

I think looking at those times, it might be wise if you put me in the middle stint, that way the faster guys can work up the field to a good finish. My worry is I undo all the hard work that has been done at the start and then whoever is last has to really work to get further ahead.
