Not tried this on multiplayer before (ignore if you've done this already): I noticed a lobby saying "Track Day Any Car" at Zolder and had a go. The host had set practice to maximum length and car choice was unrestricted. I love Zolder and it was so much fun driving around in my choice of car (an evil Caterham Superlight) while the oppo were lapping mainly in GT's, supercars and superkarts. :) Was fantastic having a few tussles with them, keeping up and challenging where the Superlight was strong then losing out where it wasn't such a good performer (and my talents!) Some guy who deserves the utmost respect had even taken out an olde Mk1 Escort. Being overtaken by a Formula A was crazy and so so good! :D Can hear them coming a mile away haha! Made a really fun change from serious racing. So if you've not tried it, this is something else Project Cars can offer in online play when you want to let your hair down. :) It's also good practice for awareness, i.e. the closing speeds are a lot faster than single class cars, so if you can cope with this it stands you in good stead for close, clean racing too.

I have asked for this to be a feature in offline mode. Basically the ability to set up a practise but with AI cars, either same class or mixed as well as how many AI, weather etc. Not had any feedback but it would be nice.

You can do this already. You just need to choose a Quick Race weekend, instead of Free Practice.

In the race weekend, enable a Practice Session, set the time to the max (90 mins), and set the AI opponent # to what you want, and select Random for their vehicles.

I've done a few track days back in Forza was really good fun just driving to your hearts content at what ever speed you liked and what ever car or class you wanted :D.

Yep, very good fun! :) Agreed, you can set up track days offline, as Morgan describes, or online. Maybe would be a nice addition to the UI to have track day as an option just to polish things (e.g. currently with an online track day you have to have a race at the end even if it's just 1 lap, which can confuse a bit).

That could be a new mode, like in the bellow thread. A trackday mode just with times and lap count, no positions.
