Default GDD builds a race car.

If GDD pooled together a slush fund for a season of racing what would we build?

The only thing I know is that I'd be in charge of aero.

Realistically GDD would probably finance a karting program & I'd be the driver because with my superior power to weight I'd crush the field.

You want giant canards and would lower the vehicle too much. You get to give the driver his sippy cup.

Realistically I'd just demand a GT500 car because they're low, have tons of aero and are roughly as fast as LMP1 cars.

There is no cooler series.

You'd roll your Sierra on the way to the track trying to take a turn on a city street at 45 mph to 'save momentum'

There's no way GDD could agree on ANYTHING much less what kind of race car to build. That said, Lemons and Chump are the only on that list that allow for roster of drivers to compete in the same car so that would be my choice.

Default Re: GDD builds a race car.

Would we have multiple drivers?

Or would we have the best driver and the rest of us be support/pit.

GT Sport, we all pick the VW bus, and race at Suzuka East. (I hate that course)

1st to achieve 10 wins is the driver.

Best 2nd place finisher is co-driver.

Pretty sure it doesn't matter what GDD tries to build. It'll sit in a garage for 10 years then get sold as a rolling shell at 70% completion.
