Sim Racing Lap Time Challenge TRACK UPDATED TOO

Original post is here in case you didn't see: https://opposite-lock.com/topic/3018/sim-racers-of-oppo-again-wanna-play-a-game
Anyway, I've made a spreadsheet but will not share as I think it'll be more fun as a surprise to see where you land on the leaderboard. But, maybe that will change. Now, I'm setting the lap for each challenge not because I'm fast (I'm not) but because if you can't see each other's times I shouldn't either. And, it gives you a rough reference point I guess.
So with that being said, we can vote and discuss future tracks and cars but after some more research the first track will be:
Track: Laguna Seca
Car: Corvette C7.R GTE Class
Also, for a little more fun, you may submit 2 times where 1 is done with assists on like the driving line and such, and 1 is authentic to the car with no driving line. Obviously, honor code and just fun.
I currently have everyone from the first post on my spreadsheet, plus myself and my friend. This will be open invitation so anyone can join at any time and submit as long as it's before the deadline.
Challenge 1 Start Date: 12/16/2020
End Date: 12/30/2020
Please send submissions to email j(dot)b(dot)doughnuts12 @ gmail where obviously the (dots) are .
Submissions include your screen name, a screen shot or picture of your lap time on the game screen, and please include the game you used and system (PS4, XBO, PC).
P.S. I don't know for sure if you all can find the same things on your games, so let me know in the comments and if not, please feel free to suggest a similar track or class car that maybe we all share. This seemed pretty common though. I am not going to submit my time to beat until tomorrow so we have time to agree on a track and car if needed.
DOUBLE UPDATE Ok I want to make this somewhat easier, I'm going to list a bunch of tracks that I think are common, please tell me if you don't have access to any of them.
Daytona Road Course
Mount Panorama (Bathurst)
@s65 PC2 has it. I thought it would be very common lol i may need to take the actual time to look into this

@poor_sh Dunno about cars but Laguna Seca has been in pretty much every racing sim I've ever played.
@essextee Yeah I just updated the top post asking about tracks. I was hoping to avoid Laguna for the first one lol that corkscrew kills me
@Poor_sh GT Sport has Spa, Mount Panorama, Laguna Seca, Le Mans and the Ring. Would the GR.3 Corvette in get sport be okay?
Appears to be good to go in Forza 7 as Watkins Glen Full + 2014 Corvette C7.R
@s65 We'll see what others say about the C7.R but we could use the Z06 street car as well if more people have something closer to that.
@Poor_sh Gotcha. Only other funky thing about F7 is its "homologation" system which tries to even out different cars belonging to the same "genre" (i.e., hot hatch icons). Guessing we'll want to stay away from that and as close to stock as possible (just with racing slicks per you original post), right?

@poor_sh GT Sport doesn't have the Z06, could the base C7 work?
@s65 If you tune the shit out of it? lol but yeah make sure to include the car you used in your submission and it will be noted
@t0ast I wouldn't worry too much about everyone getting very close on cars. I would just err on the side of use whatever you think is fair but submit the car you used so others can check stats if they want to see potential differences. Don't need to submit full setup, but just the chosen car.

how is this challenge going to work? as each game wont be comparable in lap times
@poor_sh Lucky you, someone made a Z06 replica tune for the C7 in GT Sport. I can trash that around and try that.

Oh deary me, looks like I have an excuse to hop on iRacing tonight!
@samv8 well that's sorta the point. We don't really have any good data at how far off they'll be so the first challenge should give us at least some information on how we should change this. Maybe in the future we'll need to show all our times as we get them so people can adjust their setups to try to beat the leader? Maybe we can do some sorta BOP thing with volume of petrol or something?
Overall though, it's not really about the outcome at all. I just wanted to join some Oppos in a common goal in sim racing but knew we have a lot of different setups and games.

Regarding the rules for assists: Is the "no assist" setting literally all assists off? (no abs, tcs, esc, racing line) What about rules for camera views? I'm sure most of us will stick to cockpit or similar views if using a sim rig, but are chase or bumper views permitted?
Or am I overthinking this friendly competition and should I just shut up and race?
@i86hotdogs haha so the no assists is really supposed to be "authentic" i.e. what that car would actually run, and with no line. Doesn't have to be all assists off if it isn't defaulted that way.
As to views, yes that's too in depth I think. I have no idea how I would classify one view having an advantage, but limiting to 1 view might disadvantage a lot of people

@poor_sh Gotcha. The only advantage I can think of is a chase view giving more FOV of your surroundings compared to a cockpit/helmet view.
I'm going to list a bunch of tracks...
I think all of those are good to go for Forza 7.
Same with iRacing, though most of them aren't free ... but that's just kinda the nature of the game since it only comes with something like 6 non-oval tracks by default. I suspect the main hurdle for iRacing outside of that is just going to be car availability for anything that doesn't belong to a race series.

Everything other than Daytona road course I think is therein AC, either as an official track or as a mod... I'm guessing you are ok with using a track mod if ot doesn't exist officially?
Also, can we set multiple times and see what other people have set during the challenge period? Would be good to know how much I suck
