Okay so i was thinking. We should really make a as realistic as possible-track day in FM4. It may be a bit boring for someone who is used to freedom cause i was thinking of some strict rules:
For example:

- The first lap is a get to know the track/warm up lap.
- No drifting allowed on the 2-3 first laps.
- Damage of course on and if you really badly screw up your car, you can be removed from the game if your car doesn't work anymore/you drive your car to the pits.
- No make/model restrictions but try to keep it realistic. (Who really can afford a Koenigsegg on a regular track day?)
- The most important thing: try to have much fun with other Gommies under some rules. If and when people get bored, we can change the track so people can fool around. But me myself id like to at least try to organize a realistic track day.

Update 28.11.2011
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay so I tried out some tracks with Jake. We made a decisions that the track (tracks?) will be:

1) Indianapolis Grand Prix circuit
Because:
- It's wider than other tracks
- Driftable & driveable
- A nice big "burnout" area at the end of the main straight
- Place to take a epic group photo

2) Infeon Nascar Circuit
Because:
- Multiple open spaces to pose and burnout on
- Variety in the altitude
- A bit more challenging

3) Nürburing Grand Prix
Because:
- Nice track, very driftable
- Narrow, tight squeeze for multiple drivers at some places

IMPORTANT!
We also tried out and made a change to the rule about the cars. To keep it realistic, "mid-budget track day"
the car class will be "A-CLASS"

Because:
- You still will be able to have pretty powerful cars
- It will restrict the possibility to use supercars
- To make the experience more same to everyone

ALSO IMPORTANT!

I made a track day sticker for the drivers. I thought it would be fun to get a reminder of the track day.
Looks like this -> http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/585/gomtra.jpg/

Get it on storefront -> search by "gomtrack" or go to my storefront "tontsafin" and to Vinyl Groups.

THE MOST IMPORTANT!!

The date: Next/Coming Saturday = 3.12.2011 starting from 5pm ->

And I ask for one more thing, would you please shout out the approx car you're gonna use. This will make it easier for everyone else to make a car/choose a car. AND we will see how much variety we get on the car makes/models.
