    Cool, thanks for joining LMP3. It's more fun if there are a bunch of us. Most people don't realize what a great car it is to drive.

    Is there a practice race and or server to practice ? I ran 20 cars field of ai at Sebring in vr and it ran great.I just remember alot of studding at spa last time and I want to make sure it's not going to be an issue again.

    The server is not up yet. It's way too early. Try testing Watkings Glen with 36 AI cars and see what happens on your rig.
    If it can handle that, you should be fine because on-line the computer doesn't have to calculate the AI racing.

    Everything is free for that series, except changing cars in the GTE class.

    Not entirely. Last Saturday's GT3 race @ Bahrain I'd tested with 30 AI cars offline and everything was fine, but as soon as I entered the server with 22 cars the fps dropped significantly. Although my internet connection is fine, something always 'happens' during online racing; I even had stutters every now and then. Maybe it's my old GTX 680, but it shouldn't be an issue.

    Check. Then I'm afraid you will only know when the race starts. I hope your card can do the work.

    For each event, look inside the "Cars and track" Tab on the event page. There you can download the track that's being used:
