Vauxhall VXR8 GTS Finals - UK Tour [EVENT]

edited January 11 in General Discussion
Looks to be a mixed surface UK Ford/Land Rover final, probably rain and a bit of off-road action.

EDIT: Very likely now to be UK 4WD x5

    The finals isn’t out yet!
  • TGPDTGPD Posts: 6,069 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Yeah but this is based on my predictions from Prelims prizes and stuff.

    UK 4WD x 5 seems a narrow range. There is sure going to be a fight for the RS200s though in the Prelims

    RS200 is my unicorn, I just hope I get it from a pack as I doubt I can finish T1 in prelims. I do not care about the prize car, just want that RS200 ;)

    Maybe UK x5, 4WD x3, all off-road or rainy asphalt tracks to stop McLaren domination?

    Can’t forget 5x Non-Prize cars, unless they’re going for a combination 4WD UK filter

    UK 4wd x 5 "I'm pretty sure they can use that restriction"
    5 x no prize cars
    If there's any drags then the 4wd jags will crush it.

    Yeah, that’s what I’m thinking it will be. Has to be a non-prize cars filter in there with the Project 8, Metro, and Range Rover SVR all meeting UK 4WD

    Man there are not many cars that meet these requirements:



    In saying that, pretty good chances if you want a RR V8 or the Jag SUV.

    2nd rs200 tune (after 969) tailored for this Event? 996 Maybe?

    They’ve tried to fix an Asian problem by messing up Europe as well. Typical Hutch.

    Maybe they're making the end time great for Australia, where the prize car is from?

    I'm not sure the RRV8 is actually faster to 100 than the F-pace, or that it only loses by 50 points on the twisties so it may be two jags are optimal, and a third Jag in the F-type SVR for the tarmac drags (or an F-Type AWD as a substitute)

    And i'm not sure if the Sierra/Escort beats the RS200 on any of the slow tarmac tracks, the RS200 does prefer slightly faster tracks as a rule.

    I have only 1x RS200 :( At least no stress for the finals.

    Would the Escort (92 grip) be any good or the Sierra would still be superior? I might try one each.

    @sinner As for the F-Pace... I was surprised to see the RR winning some twisties in the prelims. I would see first how 2xRR fares, you might be ok with 3x fully upgraded RS200. I would expect the F-Pace to fare better for GForce and Slalom, but motocross/twisty road might be surprising, who knows, never seen much 969 F-Pace around.

  • TGPDTGPD Posts: 6,069 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Is the D13 Range Rover worth it? Got off road tires
  • JayJay Posts: 2,551 ✭✭✭✭✭

    F-Pace (333) wins Frozen Lake, Slalom (snow), Motocross, G-Force (Dirt) over the RR (either 996 or 969) and loses the 0-100 and Hill Climb (still testing others)

    Evoque beats the RRs on Frozen Lake, Slalom (snow), G-Force (dirt) but will obviously lose a lot on the 0-100 and Hill Climb

    F-Pace (333) wins everything over the RR (either 996 or 969) except the 0-100 and Hill Climb
    Evoque beats the RRs on Frozen Lake, Slalom (snow), G-Force (dirt) but will obviously lose a lot on the 0-100 and Hill Climb

    So basically there is no perfect hand.

    Well if I had 3 x F-Type SVR Coupe , 1 x F-Pace (969) and 1xRR (996) then I would think I should be ok. :D
