    I've just been enjoying the Chevy Dekon Monza (Gr5) - A car that I've previously overlooked due to the strengths of the BMW and Capri in that class. It strikes a lovely balance between brute-force power and control*, and I'm now really looking forward to dropping a full pack on the new Daytona. I might even suffer some Bud for the full experience. ;)

    A brief history for the uninitiated:

    *Unlike the Corvette in that class, which has brake pads made from soggy pasta.

    You don't use your brake pads with the Greenwood Corvette, you use your tyres, going sideways, to bleed off speed :D

    The OP says they hope to release it in Q2 2020, which means we'll probably get it for Christmas.:D

    But I think we might get Zhejiang earlier ;)
    That is something that will entertain us during the next months-if it comes out...

    Sorry buddy, but that's wrong. Here is a picture of the track part between the D-shape start-finish-line and turn 1:

    As you can see, the height of the fences changes from high to low. The section on the teaser picture belongs to the high fence track part, which you can only find along the start-finish-line and the backstraight. The banking of the backstraight is 2°, so the only possible remaining track part is the start-finish-line … the other possibility is an incorrect used 3D fence model of RaceRoom, then you are right.

    Both Daytona and the 911RSR were announced for the 2nd quarter of 2020.

    How many liveries are planned? There are currently four from Porsche GT Team #91 #92 and IMSA Porsche Team #911 #912. It will look a bit funny if there will be 30 RSR with the same liverie in a multiplayer race :).

    Hope its not like the old Cayman in the first months. One livery is just not enough, as well as just one Car per Class (if not a Cup Series, of course), looking at you, GT2 Porsche ;)...

    My educated guess is that there will be one or two real liveries (911 & 912). And the rest will probably fantasy liveries.

    Mr. Trump is also looking forward to the finished Daytona project by the Sector 3 Studios! ;)
