    You guys should make a deal so if one buys the real car, you get the virtual free :)

    I'm a huge fan of multiclass racing and looking forward for some endurance runs online, but at the Green Hell its always like riding the blade... (guess there will be a lot of chaos at the first RRE sessions :rage:)

    I'm really looking forward to just trying out different cars alongside others in MP on the Tourist layout. :)

    I can say from the testing that has been done so far... That if you know the track, you can definitely get in some high quality races.

    A while back the testers were driving a wide variety of cars there and there was some good close action going on. Of course, public server racing will be different, but I think the track will suit racing very well... Sure you can hotlap there just as well as any other track, but what beats going over 20 KM side by side and trading positions the whole way? :)

    @Sector3

    I've just watched some pics from yesterdays VLN pre season Test-Session and noticed that in 2016-spec the M235i racing got a rear-wing. The Official VLN-Internet-page wrote, that in combination with a modified rear suspension the 2016-spec version the rear will be more stable.

    Will the car in R3E will have that Wing, too?

    My guess would be that this: http://www.bmw-motorsport.com/en/cars/bmw-m235ir.html
    is the car they acquired a license for, and as that doesn't have a wing I'd lean towards no.

    Totally agree! This is the aspect of R3E that is currently missing, and will really have my other titles collecting a little dust....since I basically use them now just to do tourist nordschleife.

    Is there already an online "no race" mode in R3E I've not seen before?

    This seems to me to be the first car that doesnt really fit in any classes at the moment, its a one make series car, were as its been primarily based on championships. I guess its probably easier to sort out a single car than to do a whole series but is this now how R3E is being expanded in the future?

    It has it's own series besides the 24 hours of Nurburgring.

    I think it will be great to run a single make championship as well as in a VLN race when the Green Hell Launches.

    R3E already has the Audi TT cup, Corvette DP 'cup', Radical 'cup', and American National (Ford mustang gt3) 'cup', the Aquila 'cup', the NSU TTS cup, and the BMW M1 Procar 'cup'. One make series are nothing new to R3E. And it makes sense to expand the content lineup with another entry level kind of car since it competes at Nords... and that is on its way as well. :)

    Not to mention the open wheel classes that each have 1 car in them.

    And Corvette DP and Radical are effectively being re-classified to LMP2 IIRC. Not a fan of cup car series personally but at least they are still race cars as opposed to the single road cars that appear in other sims.
