    That's what I did. Worked ok for me.

    Picture hitting 9a out of turn 1 at over 160 kph, then 9b at over 180, and you maybe get an idea... lifting is bad in there.

    did the short track last year a few times....a real blast for sure...

    but when i was looking at the GT Series pictures from last year, i did not see many 4 cyl NA vehicles!

    basically, I dont want to be a pylon/speed bump!

    There will be breakout times relative to the fast time in each class. If you run a quicker lap time in the race, you will be bumped to the faster class. and yes, there are transponders this year

    First off - pylons for the faster cars are kind of fun It also adds a whole new dimension to the race.

    With respect to your pace on the track, the short track favours better handling cars over straight power. So you will do better than you think. ALSO this means you just have to convince more of the 4-banger N/A crowd to come to the events!

    Less likely. Different number of marshalls required for each track. The change over at turn 1 is not as simple as just moving cones (there is clean-up etc.)
