    As I wrote, it's balancing the cars to three different track types. In real life there are ways to do this balance of performance so the cars run close everywhere and there is no clear favorite. However, balancing that with only one track would be impossible, and users running leagues or offline will very doubtfully be doing adequate weight penalties to balance out the performance on different tracks.

    So with this kind of setup, where the user or league admin enforces a specific type of BOP (or leave a "free" setting), the racing will be more balanced. It's quite a bit of additional work for Apex to do but it will provide something not available elsewhere.

    Gents and Ladies, If you like these cars there is a 24 hour race coming up on the Nordschliefe.

    Are you convinced that cars that are balanced for performance on the Nordschliefe would not be correctly balanced for other tracks?
    For me it is not intuitively obvious. A lap on the Ring needs it all; Top Speed, handling, braking. In my experience it brings out imbalances very well.
    Can you provide an example of a track where they are not well balanced?

    Is there a reason why the z06 has no side windows?

    That means it's a great place to test a car, not necessarily balance it.
    For that, many different tracks and different types of tracks are required.
    And it's not possible that all cars will be just as fast on all tracks when they have different performance characteristics.

    Please explain that to me? So far I don't agree that it's not a great place to balance a cars performance.
    I don't see (so far) any explanation or even any examples as to why or how 2 cars that have very similar lap times at the Nordschliefe would not have a good BOP for most other tracks.
    I can easily see the reverse IE BOP at a certain tye of track but not at Nords
    But I am happy to listen if you want to substantiate how it could happen that you have BOP at Nords but not elswhere?

    The length of Nords lends to mistakes that could even out lap times for reasons not associated with BOP. Shorter tracks can allow the testers to discard laps with errors and get a better sample of test times.

    the bop is continuously improved by us. Different tracks and lengths (6,8,12 hours) the bop from bentley is new (extra for the Nordschleife) after the race, we will work for the next updade.
