    Default APR Motorsport R8 - Fighting for Championship or Struggling for Race Wins

    What's the word from the G.A. insiders, will this car's European pedigree help APR to fight for a championship... or will they struggle to win a race in their first year in the series? Not knowing much about the competetion adjustments alloted or hampering the platform I can't even make a guess, what have you guys heard about it, how did it do and the pre-Daytona test?

    The Ferraris and Audis were sand bagging. Both are mid-engine cars and the smallest with the best weight distribution and tire to weight ratio out there. Small greenhouses and low cg they should be blistering. I hope we can beat them in the M3 but it will sure be exciting to watch.

    I think my car was the only one not sand bagging... and that was only cause we were using an old motor without all the Rolex goodies.

    I think the Audis and the Ferraris are gunna be tough to beat at the 24. I bet they get the Officials Hammer after the race for the rest of the season though.. once we all see what kind of pace they have. Good thing there isn't that many of them, it's still a long race w/ plenty of time for things to break or mistakes to be made.

    Don't think so.. I haven't seen his name around. Didn't he run a DP last year or something?
