    Its probably the underlying reason why the French government tried their damndest to eradicate all traces of a race circuit in the 1990s. The place claimed a few over the years. I drove two laps of the original circuit in 2016 whilst on holiday with my family. There are still some telltale signs of it's past if you look carefully (steps leading to where grandstands stood on the exit of Nouveau Monde hairpin, pitlane entrance and exit roads, and the life-saving chicane where the formidable Six Freres corner once stood). They even tarmac'd over the patterned cobblestones on the hairpin but the tarmac is now so worn that the stones are starting to reappear. It would be great to see some form of racing around here again but I cant see the authorities wanting to cut off a main arterial road in to the city for a weekend.

    Finally got a new 4KTV and going to be on Project Cars 2 much more! Just in time for Patch 4 and FX pre-season testing. I don't want to cancel this season but we need more peeps to race with if it is to start next month!

    An old Grand Prix Legends hand like myself maybe?

    I absolutely loved that game and racing the cars you mentioned was heaven back in the day

    I would really love to take part in this (ex Grand Prix Legends fan so this would be the closest since then). But the 1 am start time here in the UK would probably be prohibitive with work the next day.

    If you do get it going I would probably like to try at least on a part-time basis.

    I adore this track. A buddy and I ran a classic series in pCars 1 and this track was probably the best in it. I was fortunate enough to pick up the win too

    That's really good! I'm about 10 seconds off the AI's pace but I haven't messed around with tuning setups that much for this car

    We could set the time for a couple hours earlier if you want?
